Palmer has the weapons. The question is if the Chargers pass D is any better. Even if it is, Palmer should still put up numbers.

AZ has Patrick Peterson but will be without Daryl Washington, Darnell Dockett and possibly Tyrann Mathieu. All good news for Rivers and the Bolts.

Arizona was impossible to move the ball against on the ground last year, Rivers is going to have to throw the ball against a Cardinals D that was only 21st against fantasy quarterbacks last year.

*Falling Star* - Not that we were relying on Palmer to contribute significantly in Week 1 of the NFL season, but if star running back Andre Ellington misses the game Palmer's value could take a slight slide. Keep tuned in to FFLockerRoom Sports for updates on this situation throughout the weekend.
