2021 Fantasy Outlook
A 2019 undrafted free agent, Zaccheaus has demonstrated some big-play potential for the Falcons, with three catches of 40-plus yards among his 23 career receptions. He's averaged 10.5 yards per target through two seasons, but he's also needed injuries to one of two star wideouts to make an impact. Before a toe injury sidelined him for the final five games of 2020, Zaccheaus' two biggest efforts - 8-86-0 in Week 4 and 4-103-1 in Week 9 - came when Jones missed most of the former and when Ridley was inactive for the latter. Even if Atlanta ends up acquiescing to Jones' trade request, Zaccheaus will be firmly behind Ridley, Russell Gage and stud rookie tight end Kyle Pitts in the pecking order for targets.

Two catches in Week 2
WRAtlanta Falcons
September 20, 2021
Zaccheaus caught two of four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 48-25 loss to the Buccaneers.
ANALYSIS
Zaccheaus was more involved after a goose egg in the season opener, but he still finished sixth on the team in targets, catches and receiving yards, with all five players ahead of him catching at least five passes. With Atlanta involving its running backs and tight ends in the passing game, the No. 3 wide receiver's volume will remain capped barring injuries to some of his teammates.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Zaccheaus is slotted into Atlanta's No. 4 wide receiver role to begin the season, after overcoming Christian Blake and 2016 No. 23 overall pick Laquon Treadwell to secure the gig. Zaccheaus lit up the stat sheet late in his collegiate career at Virginia, and he now plays for an NFL offense that is fresh off a No. 1 ranking in pass attempts (684). The issue is, of course, that with Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage already firmly planted in prominent roles on the depth chart, Zaccheaus remains a long shot to provide sustainable fantasy utility in 2020. Furthermore, down the stretch of 2019 it was Blake and Justin Hardy who split the No. 4 role after Mohamed Sanu's midseason trade to New England, while Zaccheaus was less involved offensively.
Zaccheaus was an absolute production monster over the latter half of his career at Virginia, piecing together back-to-back seasons of 1,000 offensive yards in 2017 and 2018, while scoring six-plus touchdowns over each of his final three seasons with the Cavaliers. He went unselected in April's draft, but with a number of acrobatic catches in the preseason made enough of an impression with the Falcons coaching staff to secure a spot on the 53-man roster. During his rookie campaign Zaccheaus will serve as Atlanta's No. 5 or 6 wide receiver, while taking on a prominent special teams role.
