Some will wonder if Claypool is the add off the waiver wire after his big catch last week, but he's still trailing Washington in the pecking order. Claypool ran 13 routes while Washington ran 22 of them. This is not a team that runs 4WR sets, so we're going to have to wait for one of them to emerge before relying on either of them as anything more than a big play or bust WR5/6-type option. For now, the better option is Washington, but knowing the Texans have faced just 18.0 receiver targets per game, it's tough to say either of them are good bets.After Olsen allowed a pass to go right through his hands and off his helmet for a pick-six on the first drive, he didn't see a target for the rest of the game. He played 45 snaps, so it's not like he was benched or anything. Still, to see him and Dissly, who's playing half the snaps, combine for just two targets, it's worrisome. The Cowboys have been a mixed bag, as they held Tyler Higbee to just 3/40/0 in their first matchup, but then allowed Hayden Hurst to tag them for 5/72/1 in Week 2. It's still a small sample size, but when you combine those two together, you have eight catches for 112 yards and a touchdown on just 12 targets, so it's not a matchup I'd say is a must avoid. I'm more concerned about the targets between the two of them, but knowing the tight ends combined for seven targets in Week 1, we may want to consider Week 2 a fluke. Olsen is still playing the most snaps, making him the one you'd want to play, if any. He's a TE2 who comes with some risk.

 Olsen was the cause of Wilson's interception on Sunday night and he didn't see another target. Olsen's off the redraft radar and shouldn't be someone that you trust in your starting lineup.
