Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Benjamin bounced back from a sub-par effort in Week 1 against the 49ers (one catch for 25 yards on five targets) with a solid effort in Week 2 against the Bills (six catches on eight targets for 77 yards). Things should continue to trend upward for Benjamin in Week 3 when the Panthers take on the Saints at home. New Orleans is already without Delvin Breaux, and it's possible they'll be without Marshon Lattimore, too. With Benjamin already set to see an uptick in targets without Greg Olsen, and with an already struggling Saints defense banged up in the secondary, Benjamin should have a big game in this one. Tate had a great effort in Week 1 against the Cardinals, hauling in 10 out of 12 targets for 107 yards. But he was targeted just four times last week against the Giants (catching all of them) and totaled just 25 yards. Things should get better this week against Atlanta in a likely shootout, as he's averaged seven receptions and 80 yards receiving in his last four home games. He should see Brian Poole most often in coverage, which should limit Tate's big-play potential. But Tate should still see plenty of targets in this one, and the volume should keep in him the WR2 discussion, particularly in PPR leagues.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Kelvin Benjamin has always been a target monster, but he'll see increased usage now with Olsen out. He should be considered a solid WR2 in this matchup, as the Saints are already lacking talent, but may be without first-round rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore who is going through the concussion protocol. Don't forget they are already without Delvin Breaux, their top cornerback.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Saints give up 32.4 points per game to fantasy receivers and TE Greg Olsen is going to be out for the next couple months. Benjamin has WR1 upside in a great matchup. Atlanta is 16th against fantasy receivers, but this game has shootout written all over it and one of the Falcons games was against the Bears. Tate should have low-end WR2 appeal with higher appeal in PPR.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Benjamin should be in line for a touchdown this week, especially with Greg Olsen out. Don't overthink this one.
