Tate has posted at least 50-plus yard in each of his first two games along with recording at least 6 targets in each of his first two games as a Lion. This could be the week where Tate has his breakout performance. The Packers have allowed opposing teams No.2 wide receivers find the endzone in each of the last two weeks (Rod Streater, Jeremy Kerley) accept Kerley’s was called back because of the Jets calling a time out as the ball was snapped.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Fitzgerald has WR2 appeal against a 49ers secondary that was torched by the Chicago Bears last week. It would help if QB Carson Palmer could play this week.
Tate has WR3 value against a struggling Packers secondary.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Big days no more - 72 yards or less in 14 of past 17 (both games this year) - but the catch is that 2 of those 3 games he went over was vs. SF - he knows them well -- FF = 6/94/0
In sync w/ Stafford (caught 11 of 14 intended targets). another solid PPR day vs. undaunting GB secondary. FF = 6/85/0
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Benefits from playing with Stanton another week. Expect his QB to struggle against San Francisco, but he'll look Fitz's way often all the same.
