Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

-Working primarily as a short-to-intermediate slot receiver, Gage set career highs in 2020 with 110 targets, 72 catches, 786 yards and 4 TDs.

-He benefited from 7 missed games from Julio Jones. In those, Gage ranked as a top-30 WR three times. He maxed out as the WR8 in Week 17 at Tampa Bay.

-With Jones active for 9 games, Gage scored only once and ranked as a top-30 WR three times. He maxed out as the WR11 (Week 1 vs. Seattle).

-Jones, of course, was dealt to the Titans in June. He was on pace for 121 targets last season. His absence is huge for Gage’s spot-start value.

-Gage benefited from a pass heavy Atlanta offense. Matt Ryan led the league in attempts; Atlanta led the league in pass rate.

-At WR, no significant add was made in free agency. The Falcons only selected Frank Darby in Round 6 of April’s draft. He’s a long-shot for 2021 value.

-Of course, Kyle Pitts arrived as the 4th overall pick. Young, uber-athletic and versatile, Pitts projects as an instant focal point for 1st-year HC Arthur Smith.

-2021 is a contract year for the LSU product.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Gage wasn’t an explosive playmaker last season. But he flexed some PPR muscle with 72 catches, a tally only 24 WRs beat.

Now with Julio officially off of the roster, Gage will retain some PPR appeal as a WR4/5.
