Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Buccaneers are eighth against fantasy quarterbacks, but Ryan and the Falcons tend to play big at home and the Buccaneers have faced Panthers QB Derek Anderson and Rams QB Austin Davis.

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.

Our early week game is the Falcons vs. Buccaneers. Ryan has been playing extremely well in 2014, continuing the momentum that he had put together in 2013. There is one difference though. He has receivers! Even against a tough Tampa Bay defense Ryan should do just fine.
*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.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Bucs D is solid and he looked awful last week. He's back at home and Jake Matthews should return, though.
