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.

Manning looks like a lame duck in 2014. Until he can figure out the new-look offense he is no more than a waiver wire pickup to help out during severe bye-week or quarterback injury situations.
*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.

Eli actually wasn't the problem last week, but Texans aren't going to make life easier.
