Bad ankle and ribs, he probably won't be running much this week. And that's concerning. There is even talk of him sitting out.

Palmer has the weapons. The question is if the Chargers pass D is any better. Even if it is, Palmer should still put up numbers.
I like the Ravens to rebound on D this year, plus The Red Rifle takes his game on the road. I'm not optimistic he does great things.

*Falling Star* - Not that we were relying on Palmer to contribute significantly in Week 1 of the NFL season, but if star running back Andre Ellington misses the game Palmer's value could take a slight slide. Keep tuned in to FFLockerRoom Sports for updates on this situation throughout the weekend.
