Dallas is 7th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Palmer has been a steady QB2 this season.
The Colts dropped to 17th against fantasy quarterbacks, thanks to last week's game. Keep in mind that Big Ben tallied six of the 14 passing touchdowns the Colts have given up this year last week. The Colts are much tougher on D than they showed; it is not a great matchup for Eli coming out of his bye week.
