Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He's been flat out solid and he's in the desert against a pretty leaky Eagles D so you can trust him.
Obviously a great matchup here and Orton seems to be getting more comfortable but he's still Kyle freaking Orton.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Eagles are just 20th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks, Palmer should have some upside facing this defense at home.
