Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy expects wide receiver Taylor Gabriel to be more than a gimmick player in his first season with the team. Wide receivers coach Mike Furrey sees a "great opportunity" for Gabriel in this offense after he combined for 68 catches for 957 yards and seven touchdowns the last two years in Atlanta. "Once we get closer to training camp, and once he learns our system and knows exactly what he should do and be able to apply it to what he's done in the past … I'm really intrigued to see how far he'll go," Furrey said. "I don't think he's at his ceiling yet, and I think that's what's interesting." Gabriel adds a nice wrinkle to Chicago's offense, but it may be hard for him to make a consistent fantasy impact while competing for targets with receivers Allen Robinson, Kevin White and Anthony Miller, tight end Trey Burton and running back Tarik Cohen.

ESPN's Adam Shefter has reported that the Chicago Bears will sign free-agent wide receiver Taylor Gabriel to a four-year contract. Gabriel enjoyed an excellent 2016 season, averaging 16.5 yards per catch and bringing in a team-high six touchdowns. Gabriel's speed was a huge factor in what made the Falcons a historically fantastic offense, and he can take the top off of a defense. But Gabriel struggled at times last season with a foot injury and never really meshed in a new offensive system after offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan left for the 49ers. The Bears have made quite a splash in the opening moments of free agency, and Gabriel will have every opportunity to continue to grow in new head coach Matt Nagy's offense. Gabriel last season caught 33 passes for 378 yards and only one touchdown.

Atlanta Falcons impending free-agent wide receiver Taylor Gabriel tweeted a farewell to Atlanta and is obviously not expecting to be back with the team in 2018. The 27-year-old Gabriel broke out for 35 catches, 579 yards and a career-high six scores in 2016, but he disappointed with just 378 yards and one touchdown on 33 catches in 2017. He has home run potential on any given play, but he's more of a gadget player that is highly inconsistent for fantasy purposes.
