Wide Receivers: (6, 16/53)
- Julio Jones
- Calvin Ridley
- Russell Gage
- Olamide Zaccheaus
- Laquon Treadwell
- Chris Rowland
Juilo Jones is still the best wide receiver in football and Ridley now slips into the number two role for the full season with Mohamed Sanu now a member of the New England Patriots. This receiver group is filled with many young playmakers for the 2020 season.
Gage is coming off a solid sophomore year with 49 receptions, 446 yards, and one touchdown. I expect him to have a bigger role this upcoming season as the number three receiver for the Atlanta Falcons.
Zaccheaus was a UDFA is 2019 and made the roster at 22-years old and I see the makings of a speedy deep threat option for the Falcons. His first-ever NFL catch went for 93 yards and to the end zone. What a way to start your career!
Laquon Treadway was a former first-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings and I believe will rebound well with a solid group of guys around him. Sometimes a change of scenery is all a player needs and Matt Ryan throwing to you does not hurt.
Rowland is a UDFA but has solid return skills on special teams and if he can catch as well as he runs he may make a case for that last receiver spot. It does not look good for guys like Christian Blake or Brandon Powell unless they have a strong preseason.
