Breaking Football
Titans D is better than advertised, but Dalton's balanced offense gives him a solid chance. Monitor A.J. Green's status, though.

Palmer's status for Week 3 is unclear. It's worth keeping an eye on, and Drew Stanton will get the start again if he can't go.
  
Staff Rankings

Red-Rifle is without his primary receiver in Green, but has 553 passing yards through two weeks. They are a run-first offense, but that is fine as long as Bernard keeps getting them sweet ol' dump passes and screens. Dalton is a solid QB2 option against the Titans.
*falling star* Still having trouble gripping the ball and putting velocity on his throw. Did not play in Week 2. Stay tuned to FFLockerRoom Sports throughout the week as Ziad Dahdul and Chris Ziza update you on all of the injury situations that will affect your fantasy football teams. If he does play Palmer will be a solid QB2.
