Jan 3 - 4:30 PM

Taylor Gabriel failed to reel in his lone target Sunday in the Falcons' Week 17 win over the Panthers.

Gabriel tied for the team lead with six receiving touchdowns a year ago but only scored once in 2017. That touchdown came all the way back in Week 3. The 26-year-old gadget player has been held to 20 yards or fewer in seven straight games and won’t be a realistic fantasy option for next week’s playoff opener against the Rams.

Taylor Gabriel caught three passes for 58 yards in Week 10 against Dallas.

Gabriel has played two of his best games in consecutive weeks. He's still has a low-volume in Steve Sarkisian’s offense. Gabriel hasn’t had more than four catches since Week 3.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Oct 1, 2017 04:55:00 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.
Sun, Sep 24, 2017 05:35:00 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.
Mon, Sep 18, 2017 12:49:00 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.

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.
