1. QB Carson Palmer, ARI:
Palmer is coming off a spectacular outing, completing 20 passes for 329 yards, 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions as the Cardinals took down the Eagles. Palmer is faced with a mediocre Dallas pass defense that is allowing 237.4 passing yards per contest. Since coming back from injury, the 34-year-old veteran QB has proved he still has something left in the tank, throwing for 832 yards, 6 touchdowns and 1 interception in 3 games. Expect Palmer to keep up the high level of productivity. He is a good fantasy football start option and can be used as a solid QB1 in standard fantasy formats.
2. RB Ahmad Bradshaw, IND:
Bradshaw has shown his knack for finding the end zone for the Colts, doing so successfully in 3 straight games. He has essentially surpassed Trent Richardson as the feature back, and has put up more impressive numbers and that trend will continue. He has a very favorable match as the Colts head to New York to take on the Giants (22nd rush defense, allowing 122 rushing yards per game). Not only is their rush defense weak, but Bradshaw has extra motivation, facing his former team. Consider Bradshaw a low end RB1 for this week's contest.
3. WR Mohamed Sanu, CIN:
Sanu had a solid game last week, catching 5 passes for 125 yards, as he took over at lead wide receiver with A.J. Green out for the game. The Bengals WR corps will face a very easy opponent in the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags are awful against the pass, allowing 267.4 passing yards per game, which should allow QB Andy Dalton to have a field day with the tools at his disposal. Don't be surprised if Sanu exceeds expectations, and goes off for 80-100 yards and a touchdown. Sanu can be plugged in as a WR2 with WR1 upside.
1. WR Vincent Jackson, TB:
Vincent Jackson is most certainly a WR1 caliber player, but weak quarterback play makes him a less-than-trustworthy start. Having Mike Glennon under center causes Jackson's value to take a massive hit, and he has not had a good performance since he went of for 8-144-0 against the Saints Week 5. He's playing a weak pass defense in the Cleveland Browns, but Vincent Jackson has failed to prove he can be a consistent fantasy contributor, and should not be trusted as anything more than a weak WR2 for Sunday.
2. RB Darren McFadden, OAK:
McFadden is not an advised play as the Raiders head to Seattle for Sunday's contest. McFadden struggled against the Browns, going for 12-59-0 with a lost fumble, and will be facing a much tougher opponent in the Seahawks. The Seattle rush defense ranks 6th against the run allowing 89.6 rushing yards per contest, and the injury-plagued Darren McFadden will struggle to get things going. Raiders coach Tony Sparano has advocated giving more carries to RB Maurice Jones-Drew, which will probably cut into McFadden's workload as well. Consider Darren McFadden nothing more than a weak RB3 at Seattle.
