  • Russell Gage Limps Off The Field Wednesday

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Russell Gage (ankle, foot) limped off the field at training camp practice on Wednesday with what might be a left ankle or foot injury. Gage was injured during one-on-one drills. We'll have more on Gage's injury once we know more, but for now, consider him day-to-day. The recent addition of veteran Julio Jones wasn't great news for the 26-year-old's chances of a prominent role in the Bucs' passing offense, although Gage could still see ample targets if Chris Godwin (knee) isn't ready by Week 1 of the regular season. Top wideout Mike Evans (hamstring) has also been slowed at camp by a minor injury. If Gage's injury isn't too serious, he'll still be attractive as a late-round upside selection.

  • Russell Gage, Jaelon Darden Have Looked Good

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receivers Russell Gage and Jaelon Darden have looked good so far in training camp. Gage has been as advertised by sporting an array of moves to help him get separation both on the outside and inside in the slot. He's often been the primary receiver in practices with Chris Godwin (knee) missing time. Darden has a much better understanding of the playbook, which includes choice routes that are prevalent in the offense. He's playing faster, running better routes and catching the ball with greater regularity in his second season. Darden also has the inside track for the return-specialist job, which helps his chances of making the final roster. Gage could still be a nice weapon in his first year in Tampa, but the addition of veteran Julio Jones should temper fantasy managers' hopes for a breakout in 2022.

  • Russell Gage Impressing Early In Training Camp

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Russell Gage has consistently impressed in the first week of training camp. "Gage has really been the one to stand out. I don't think we've covered him yet," head coach Todd Bowles said Friday. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin (knee), Gage and Jones are set to be the team's top four receivers, but in the battle for the final two receiver jobs on the roster, Tyler Johnson has turned heads this week. The punt and kickoff returner will likely take one of the final receiver jobs, and Jaelon Darden is still the early leader there. Gage had had two touchdowns in practice on Saturday, and although the addition of Jones makes him slightly less appealing in fantasy, he should still be a fine late-round target as he continues to show nice chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady in practices.

  • Russell Gage Healthy At Training Camp

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Russell Gage (undisclosed) was full-go at training camp practice on Wednesday. Gage, who signed as a free agent after four seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, was unable to get integrated into the offense during offseason workouts due to an unspecified injury. "Russ looks great," said head coach Todd Bowles. "He came back in great shape and we're happy to have him moving." Gage's fantasy value has taken a hit already at camp, though, with Chris Godwin (knee) avoiding the Physically Unable to Perform list and with veteran wideout Julio Jones signing to provide competition. The 26-year-old isn't quite as sexy of a breakout candidate now, especially if Godwin is ready for the start of the season.

  • Russell Gage To Have Big Role In Tampa Bay

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Russell Gage is expected to have a big year, according to quarterback Tom Brady. Over the last two seasons, Gage posted 138 catches for 1,556 yards and eight touchdowns with the Atlanta Falcons. He earned himself a three-year deal worth $30 million over the offseason. The expectation is that Gage will be the No. 2 wideout to begin the season. Superstar wide receiver Chris Godwin (knee) is still recovering from knee surgery. It sounds like Brady plans on working Gage into the offense right away. He could very well have fantasy relevance right out of the gate next season.

  • Russell Gage In An Important Role With New Team

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady said that wide receiver Russell Gage is in a very important role in a pass-heavy offense and has a great opportunity ahead of him in 2022. When Brady speaks, you should usually listen, especially since he has a lot of say in Tampa's offense. Chris Godwin (knee) tore his ACL in Week 15 of last year and may not be ready for the start of the regular season, so Gage will be in a prime spot to receive plenty of targets from Brady behind No. 1 wideout Mike Evans early on. The 26-year-old had 138 catches for 1,556 yards and eight touchdowns the last two years with the Atlanta Falcons, but he becomes a whole lot more intriguing to fantasy managers with Brady slinging him the pigskin.
