The Jets have been scorched time-and-time-again this season by opposing passing offenses. Look for it to continue as Rivers, who is averaging 289 yards a week to go along with 2.25 touchdowns, should perform as a top-5 option.
Palmer expects to play this week against the Broncos. If he is suited up expect a solid QB2 performance with upside possibility against Denver. If Palmer can't go though, Stanton will get the nod.

Rivers is on a tear right now, the Chargers are at home again and the Jets allow the 4th most points to fantasy quarterbacks.
