Start ‘Em

WR Golden Tate (DET)

So, the great one, Calvin Johnson may not play this Sunday when the Detroit Lions face the Minnesota Vikings? That is a strong possibility. Johnson only caught one ball last week before leaving the game after aggravating his injured ankle. In his place however, Golden Tate flourished.

Tate becomes Matthew Stafford‘s No. 1 receiver with Megatron out, and will get a ton of looks come Sunday. Furthermore, the Vikings are giving up an average of 70 yards and one score to opposing WR1’s this year. Watch for Tate over the middle on the short crossing routes, a PPR fantasy football owners dream come true!

TE Greg Olsen (CAR) Panthers tight end, Greg Olsen is on pace to have his best season of his career. This week he faces a Bengals defense that has played well, but gave up 185 total yards and two touchdowns last week to the Patriots. Start Olsen this very favorable match-up.
