Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's been really good over the last two weeks, hauling in 13-of-15 targets for 155 yards, though he hasn't scored outside of the Cardinals game back in Week 3. That seems to be a theme with non-McCaffrey Panthers skill-position players. The Saints have not been a matchup to target with tight ends over the last two years, as they allowed the eighth-fewest points to them in 2018 and the 10th-fewest in 2019. We did see a glitch in the matrix last week, however, as Cameron Brate racked-up 10 catches for 73 yards against them. Is this a product of them missing Marshon Lattimore? Does it have a butterfly effect on everyone else? The Panthers are going to struggle to move the ball on the ground in New Orleans, so when you combine that with his 21 targets over the last three weeks, it's tough to say he doesn't belong in the low-end TE1 conversation, though he has a lower ceiling than most in that range.His role has been continually growing over the last month, as the 29 targets over his last four games indicate, including a career-high 11 targets in last week's game against the Vikings. That was a brutal matchup that he walked out of with four catches for 60 yards. Many will see him as an auto-start with that volume, and while I can understand the thought, the Bills are a team that should leave you second-guessing, though. They have yet to allow a tight end more than 48 yards this year, which included matchups with Zach Ertz, Evan Engram, Delanie Walker, and Mike Gesicki. It's not a one-year thing, either. They were the second-best team in football against tight ends last year, allowing just 5.89 yards per target. They're currently the No. 1 team in the league against tight ends, allowing just 29.6 yards per game to the position. Knowing Fant has caught just 56 percent of his targets, he'd likely need another 11 target to produce in this matchup. He's trending up but is just a low-appeal TE2 this week.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 Fant had 11 targets in Week 11. Any tight end with double digit targets is worthy of at least streaming consideration, and Fant falls into the TE2 bucket this week as well.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Buffalo is one of the worst matchups in football for opposing wide receivers so let's just get that out of the way. But regardless, would you rather start a tight end with 8 targets against the best defense or 4 targets against the worst? That is what we are deciding between this week at the tight end position and I don't know about you, but I'm taking the targets every day of the week, especially when they come from such an electric athlete like Fant.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Olsen has been used more over the past few weeks, but he still has only found the end zone against the Cardinals this season, which anyone can do. Just look at OJ Howard. The Panthers will likely have to pass a lot, which helps Olsen's outlook, but his name is still the most valuable thing about him. He's a fringe TE1 option.The stingy Buffalo defense has been the toughest against opposing TEs this season, allowing just 5.0 fantasy points per game. This is due to versatile safety Micah Hyde, who Fant will be facing on Sunday. Fant sees a 19 percent matchup disadvantage, according to Pro Football Focus.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Saints are 9th against fantasy tight ends, Olsen is a boom / bust TE1 option on a struggling offense in a tough matchup.The Bills allow the fewest points to fantasy tight ends, Fant is a low-upside TE2 this week on the road in a very tough matchup.
