Liz Loza explains why the Falcons WR deserves a spot in your starting lineup.
- Liz, help the people out with the fantasy-preview selection here.
LIZ LOZA: Well, another stud that's been missing is Julio Jones, right? He's been nursing this bad hammy all season. He's going to sit today. You also got Olamide Zaccheaus on IR with a toe issue. Hayden Hurst done a whole bunch of nothing-- two catches, 16 yards, over his last two games. It is still Russell Gage time. I know he's not exciting. I know he was drafted many rounds after Calvin Ridley, but he and Matt Ryan do have nice chemistry, nice rapport. And, listen, Matt Ryan needs a little bit of love right now. Gage has drawn at least seven targets in three of his last four games. In PPR-friendly formats, I think that he is a reasonable flex play.
