Carson Palmer went 24-for-48 passing for 373 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's game between the Raiders and the Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.
Carson Palmer went 24-for-48 passing for 373 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's game between the Oakland Raiders and the Miami Dolphins. The Raiders threw often during the 35-13 loss, leading to an erratic performance from the man under center. His touchdown came on a short toss that Mike Goodson turned into a 64-yard score.
Fantasy Impact: Palmer had more to work with downfield thanks to the return of Denarius Moore from a hamstring injury, but the quarterback was not as sharp as we have seen him in the past. Big yardage numbers are nice, but so are touchdowns and at the moment it does not appear that Palmer and the Raiders offense have enough weapons to put a lot of points on the board, especially if Darren McFadden struggles.
