Carson Palmer went 17-for-26 passing for 181 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions during Saturday's Week 3 preseason game between the Oakland Raiders and the Detroit Lions. He was upstaged by Terrelle Pryor, who went 3-for-5 for 137 yards and two touchdowns, and ran for 90 yards and a touchdown on five carries.
Analysis: It was a shaky outing to say the least for Palmer. The veteran quarterback has been inconsistent throughout preseason, looking strong and accurate at times but also a bit unsure within the offense. He isn't in any danger of losing his job, unless Pryor can do what he did against first-team defenses. Palmer isn't looking like a strong fantasy option, however, especially in leagues that detract points for interceptions. He is worth a late-round selection as a QB2, but absolutely do not draft him as your starter.
