 Tate has been playing second fiddle to Jones in targets, but is still a very good fantasy asset, especially this week at Green Bay, where Detroit will be required to throw the ball 30+ times.

Hopkins is an elite WR1 against the Patriots defense. He was targeted 11 times in Week 2.  
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Teams are going to have to start spending more time on stopping Will Fuller, which will open up more for the dynamic Hopkins.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
New England's secondary has been weak against elite fantasy receivers and Hopkins should be able to post big numbers on Thursday Night.
