Date:

Taylor Gabriel caught 3-of-4 targets for 56 yards in the Falcons' Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

His long went for 40 yards. Gabriel isn't a fantasy factor when everyone is healthy.
Nov 5 - 5:03 PM

Taylor Gabriel caught his lone target for a loss of three yards in the Falcons' Week 8 win over the Jets.

Gabriel lacks a significant role in Atlanta's offense whenever all of the Falcons' other weapons are healthy.
Oct 29 - 5:13 PM

Taylor Gabriel caught two passes for 27 yards in Week 7 against the Patriots.

Gabriel had a goal-line carry on an end around, but couldn't score. He saw his role reduced with Mohamed Sanu back in the lineup. Gabriel can be dropped in redraft leagues.
Oct 23 - 12:13 AM

Taylor Gabriel caught 4-of-8 targets for 39 yards in the Falcons' Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

With Mohamed Sanu sidelined, Gabriel's eight targets were a season-high, but practice squad addition Marvin Hall stole his long touchdown. Despite the disappointing day, Gabriel will remain on both the season-long and DFS radar in Week 7 if Sanu remains out against the Patriots' Swiss-cheese defense.
Oct 15 - 5:08 PM

Taylor Gabriel was held without a catch in Week 4.

It was a disappointing game from Gabriel after Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu both left with injuries. Gabriel has been highly inconsistent this year, getting held under 40 yards in three-of-four games. The Falcons are on a bye in Week 5.
Oct 1 - 4:55 PM

Taylor Gabriel caught 5-of-6 targets for 79 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' Week 3 win over the Lions.

Gabriel had quiet Weeks 1 and 2 to open the season, but he did what he does best in this one; scoring a 40-yard touchdown on a WR screen. He flashed his big playmaking ability and speed, but Gabriel's big days are nearly impossible to predict. Gabriel is a WR5/6 next week against the Bills.
Sep 24 - 5:35 PM

Taylor Gabriel caught 2-of-3 targets for 14 yards in Week 2 against the Packers.

Gabriel remained a non-factor after he was held to three catches last week. He's taken a predictable step back with ex-OC Kyle Shanahan gone. Gabriel isn't on the re-draft radar.
Sep 18 - 12:49 AM

Taylor Gabriel caught 3-of-4 targets for 36 yards in the Falcons' Week 1 win over.

He finished fourth on the team in targets behind Mohamed Sanu (9), Tevin Coleman (6), and Julio Jones (5). Gabriel's 2016 production was largely a product of ex-OC Kyle Shanahan, and his weekly role under new OC Steve Sarkisian remains fluid. Offering obvious big-play potential but low in the pecking order for targets, Gabriel is only roster worthy in deep fantasy leagues.
Sep 10 - 4:35 PM

Taylor Gabriel failed to catch his lone target in the Falcons' third preseason game.

He was targeted on a deep shot by Matt Ryan that was nearly intercepted by Patrick Peterson. Gabriel was making his preseason debut after battling a calf injury. Gabriel is simply a big-play WR5/6 in fantasy leagues.
Aug 26 - 8:54 PM

Taylor Gabriel (calf) will play in the Falcons' third preseason game.

Gabriel has been limited throughout training camp. He'll make his preseason debut Saturday, but likely won't see more than a few series. Julio Jones (foot) is also expected to play against the Cardinals.
Aug 26 - 3:54 PM

Taylor Gabriel (calf) will be limited for the start of training camp.

Gabriel has been dealing with a lower leg issue since OTAs. He avoided the PUP list, but the Falcons will move him slowly early in camp. Gabriel should be healthy in time for Atlanta's first preseason game.
Jul 26 - 4:36 PM

Taylor Gabriel has been sidelined by a "lower leg strain" at OTAs and minicamp.

It sounds like a calf injury. The Falcons are being cautious, but speedy guys like Gabriel always seem more susceptible to muscle pulls. He may not participate in minicamp this week, but Gabriel should be fine by July.
Jun 13 - 9:23 PM

Falcons re-signed WR Taylor Gabriel to a one-year, $2.81 million contract.

He had been a restricted free agent. Cut by the Browns at the end of training camp last summer, Gabriel resurfaced as a big-play threat in Atlanta with seven touchdowns on only 39 touches. The 26-year-old should again be a key cog in the Falcons high-octane offense.
Apr 22 - 1:49 PM

Falcons extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent WR Taylor Gabriel.

Since Gabriel was undrafted out of college, Atlanta had to come up to the second-round level rather than the "original-pick" level to keep teams from coming after him. Gabriel will be back in Atlanta on a one-year, $2.81 million deal barring an extension. The 26-year-old had a strong 2016 as a big-play threat in the league's top offense. He'll fill a similar 2017 role as an up-and-down fantasy WR4.
