Dan Harris

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.Like fellow wideout Robert Woods, Watkins will reportedly play on Sunday against the 49ers, but will see very little action. Even in the good matchup, he's obviously not worth starting in any format in light of his likely limited workload.

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