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.Olsen had a bit of a letdown game against the Bucs, as the entire Panthers offense struggled. But his six targets showed that he's back to being one of Cam Newton's main weapons, and that's all that really matters for fantasy purposes. The Falcons are tough on opposing tight ends, but with a guaranteed target volume, Olsen makes an excellent play on Sunday.

Tate has a great matchup at home against the Green Bay Packers and offers good WR2 value with upside.Olsen had only 27 yards receiving last week, but the Falcons are only 13th against fantasy tight ends and he led the team in targets last week. Olsen is a TE1 for Week 17.
