Tate picked a bad time for his production to wane, and he posted just 14 yards receiving against the Bengals this week. The Lions plan to play their starters in Week 17 against Green Bay, so Tate should at least see his normal snap count. The Packers have been better of late, but they've still allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers on the season. Tate's become a risky play, but with his high volume of targets, he remains in the WR2 discussion.Brees, as usual, was excellent from a real-life perspective against the Falcons, but lackluster from a fantasy perspective, with just one touchdown pass and an interception. With a heavy reliance on the running game, it's doubtful that Brees will magically need to air the ball out next weekend against the Bucs. The Saints' playoff seeding can still move around, and they need a win to secure a home game, so expect Brees to be motivated. Still, that should leave him as just a reliable but uninspiring fantasy option.

Tate has a great matchup at home against the Green Bay Packers and offers good WR2 value with upside.The Buccaneers are just 23rd against fantasy quarterbacks, Brees should be a QB1 with the Saints playing for the NFC South title.
