Falcons' Russell Gage (ankle) ruled out for Week 5

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage (ankle) will not travel with the team to London for Sunday's Week 5 matchup with the New York Jets.

What It Means:

The Falcons will be without Gage and Calvin Ridley (personal) for their matchup with the Jets across the pond. Olamide Zaccheaus will be the default WR1 for Matt Ryan, but Kyle Pitts should also see a larger target share. Tajae Sharpe and Christian Blake are behind Zaccheaus on the depth chart. Cordarrelle Patterson also figures to be more involved as a pass-catcher without Ridley and Gage available.

numberFire's models expect Pitts to lead the Falcons with 7.5 targets versus the Jets, followed by Patterson (6.4) and Zaccheaus (6.1). The Jets are allowing the third-fewest FanDuel points per game to the wide receiver position this season, but they rank just 17th in adjusted Passing Net Expected Points allowed per play.
