    Atlanta Falcons restricted free-agent WR Taylor Gabriel signed his one-year tender worth $2.81 million on Saturday, April 22.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel emerged as a big-play threat last season by scoring seven times on only 39 touches, including six touchdown catches. He's likely to remain the third receiver in Atlanta again this year behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, but his role shouldn't change much even with the departure of former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. He's worth a look late in drafts.

  • Posted: 4/17/2017 8:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel reported for organized team activities Monday, April 17, without yet signing his free-agent tender of $2.746 million. Other teams have until Friday, April 21, to sign Gabriel to an offer sheet, so it is possible he is just waiting until the last minute to see if he can generate any outside interest.

    Huddle Up: While he's waiting for such a scenario to play out just in case, it seems unlikely another team would surrender a second-round draft pick by signing the emerging wide-out to an offer sheet. Even so, Gabriel proved his worth last year by notching six touchdown receptions in his first year with the Falcons, tying him with Julio Jones for the team lead. He deserves a late-round flier in deep leagues for having an active role in Atlanta's explosive offense.

    Atlanta Falcons restricted free-agent WR Taylor Gabriel received a second-round tender Wednesday, March 8.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel carved a niche last season and vaulted himself into the boom-or-bust fantasy picture. Reminiscent of Percy Harvin in years past, Gabriel has game-breaking ability and can be a low-target, high-scoring potential commodity. He's a WR4 that could have upside for more in fantasy.

  • Posted: 3/3/2017 10:10am ET

    The Atlanta Falcons placed a second-round tender on restricted free-agent WR Taylor Gabriel at $2.81 million Friday, March 3, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel famously was cut loose by the Cleveland Browns prior to last season, only to emerge as a much-needed big-play threat for the Falcons' top-ranked scoring offense. The second-round tender will almost certainly keep them in Atlanta. Even with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan now in San Francisco, Gabriel should enter 2017 as a fantasy WR4.

  • Posted: 1/20/2017 1:14pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel should be able to handle his normal workload against the Green Bay Packers even though he has dealt with the injury over the last few weeks. He should see a decent amount of targets during the game and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/18/2017 11:26am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) will be limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel was able to play in the Divisional round game and should be ready for the NFC Championship game this week. He has been targeted at least six times in four of the last five games and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 1/14/2017 6:21pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel caught four of his six targets for 71 yards in a 36-20 win over the Seattle Seahawks Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: There are a lot of mouths to feed in Atlanta's offense, but Gabriel's ability to turn a few catches into a bunch of yards has made him a quality fantasy starter.

  • Posted: 1/13/2017 2:23pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has been a contributor for fantasy owners this season and should receive a decent amount of targets during the playoff game this week. Gabriel can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 1/13/2017 8:06am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) practiced fully Friday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel was a bigger part of the offense down the stretch, but some of that can be attributed to Julio Jones' (toe) injury. Jones is back, and Gabriel is a flex option against the Seattle Seahawks.

  • Posted: 1/12/2017 8:18pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel is an 'every-down receiver,' according to head coach Dan Quinn, and Gabriel said he wants to show he is more than just a deep threat.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has emerged as a big-play weapon in Atlanta's offense, notching six touchdowns in his final eight games. Consider him a high-upside WR3 in the divisional round.

  • Posted: 1/12/2017 3:24pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (knee) logged his second straight full practice session on Thursday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Despite missing Atlanta's regular season finale a couple of weeks ago, it looks like Gabriel will have no issues suiting up on Saturday. Given his mostly sizzling run to cap the campaign, the former Cleveland Brown could be a sneaky WR3 play in any format. Prior to missing Week 17, Gabriel registered 60 or more receiving yards in four of his previous six contests, while also finding the end zone five times over that span. Give him a look.

  • Posted: 1/11/2017 2:25pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has received two weeks to rest his foot and appears to be on track to play in the Divisional Round. He should receive a solid amount of targets during the game but should only be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option because of the tough matchup.

  • Posted: 1/2/2017 3:19pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) is expected to participate in practice this week, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel probably will be limited this week so the team can give him extra time to recover from his foot injury. Gabriel should see a decent amount of targets in the Divisional round playoff game and could be a flex option in daily fantasy leagues next week.

  • Posted: 12/31/2016 11:47am ET

    Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) is not dealing with a long-term injury. Quinn said Gabriel tried to prepare for Week 17 but was not healthy enough to play.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel appears to have a decent chance to be ready for the playoffs, so owners should keep an eye on his practice participation over the next few weeks. Mohamed Sanu may receive more targets with Gabriel out and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in Week 17.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 10:44am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) will be a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 17, but owners should monitor the situation. He has caught two touchdowns in the last three games and has been targeted at least five times in six of the last seven games. He can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option if he is active.

  • Posted: 12/28/2016 4:31pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel's status is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to monitor his situation during the week. He has been a solid contributor for the Falcons this season and can be at least a flex option if he plays.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 3:46pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel posted just three receptions for 15 yards in the Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted four times.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel's production was limited, and his targets down thanks to the return of Julio Jones and the fact Mohamed Sanu is getting healthy again down the stretch.

  • Posted: 12/23/2016 2:38pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has been a solid fantasy contributor over the last several weeks, but it is not known if he will lose any targets with Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu in the lineup. He should still have a decent role in the offense and can be a No. 3 receiver in leagues.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 5:56pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: The speedy receiver has been delivering big plays on a weekly basis, and he is a high-upside WR3 in Week 16 against a vulnerable Carolina secondary.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 4:16pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has been a great fantasy option for owners over the last month and has recorded five touchdowns in the last five games. He has also recorded at least 60 yards in four of the last five games. Gabriel can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 10:43pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel (shoulder) left the Week 15 game against the San Francisco 49ers due to a shoulder injury, but he was able to return and finish out. He posted three receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown in the win.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has five touchdowns over the past five games, and seven scores (six receiving, one rushing) over the past seven outings. He has emerged as a must-start WR2 in most fantasy leagues, but his targets could take a hit once Julio Jones is ready to return.

  • Posted: 12/12/2016 5:37am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel had three catches for 82 yards and a touchdown Sunday, Dec. 11, against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons really spread the ball around with Julio Jones (toe) out and an ineffective running game. Eight different players caught passes, but Gabriel was the most effective. He's less of a risk in non-PPR leagues, but he continues to be a legit WR3.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 3:13pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel caught five passes for 44 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has been targeted at least five times in each of the last four games and appears to have a solid role in the passing game. He has three touchdowns in the last three games and can be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/29/2016 9:06am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel has been 'great for us this year' and a 'sparkplug' for the offense, according to QB Matt Ryan.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel hasn't seen more than five targets in a game all season, but it is getting harder to dismiss by the week. Over the last five weeks in PPR scoring (with his bye week included), the Cleveland Browns castoff is 13th among receivers in total fantasy points and seventh in fantasy points per game. In standard leagues, those ranks are sixth and second, respectively. Despite his consistent lack of volume, he has earned the right to be considered a flex option in all leagues at the very least.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 2:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel caught four passes for 75 yards and two touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. He also rushed for 27 yards on one carry during the game.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons have not had a great No. 2 option behind Julio Jones, but Gabriel could fill that spot after his Week 12 performance. He likely will have a solid role in the passing game moving forward and can be at least a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 6:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel only converted one of his five touches for a catch in the Week 10 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, but it was a big play. He posted a 76-yard touchdown, the team's only visit to the end zone in the loss.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has emerged as a playmaker in the Atlanta offense, scoring in three consecutive games. He is garnering attention in TD-only leagues and some deeper fantasy formats. However, the Falcons are off in Week 11 due to a bye.

  • Posted: 11/4/2016 8:37pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel said offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan installed running plays for him before Week 8 but didn't call any until the Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has emerged as an effective No. 3 option in the passing game for Atlanta the last two weeks. He is worth stashing in deeper formats, and he is an intriguing low-priced option in DFS games.

  • Posted: 11/3/2016 10:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel posted five receptions for 52 yards in the Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Nov. 3, and he added two runs for 24 yards including a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Gabriel has been useful over the past two games, posting eight catches for 120 yards and a score while running for another touchdown. He is worth a speculative pick as a WR4 heading into Week 10 in Philadelphia.
