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.

Tate has a great matchup at home against the Green Bay Packers and offers good WR2 value with upside.
