Palmer's first full game back from a torn ACL makes him a risk, but he's at home and the Saints aren't a defense to fear right now.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Detroit lost some defensive bite but they shouldn't suddenly be awful. That being said, Rivers has been money in his new system and he's at home.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

 
Detroit allowed the 5th fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks last year, but I think those stats go out the window with DT Ndamukong Suh now in Miami.
