Carson Palmer had 353 yards. We break down the fantasy implications.

Carson Palmer put the ball up 33 times and completed 23 of them for 353 yards, one TD and a pick. The 10.7 YPA is a season high to help him get to a 102.2 passer rating.

Palmer has a ton of pass attempts with 195 attempts and 122 completion for 1,431 and six touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: The Raiders finally decided to run the ball. The Raiders were ranked 31st in rushing attempts Palmer ranked 17th in attempts. Wisely, the strategy made sense with the Falcons struggling to stop the run. Palmer is establishing a nice rapport with Denarius Moore and things are looking up for him.

He'll take on the Jaguars next week and will serve as a decent QB2 as a bye-week fill in.
