Russell Gage, WR, Atlanta Falcons
Gage had eight catches for 86 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. The great matchup, some notable absences and Atlanta’s 55 pass attempts all have to be noted, but on a short week with a Thanksgiving night game Gage should maintain a fairly prominent role.
The New Orleans Saints entered Week 12 in the bottom half of the league against wide receivers, and as long as tight end Austin Hooper remains out Gage will be a prominent short area target.
Gage is mostly worth a look in deeper PPR leagues for Week 13, with the chance to maintain the vacated Mohamed Sanu role in a high-volume Falcons’ air attack.
