RG3 might suck in this game as the Texans have a still underrated defense, but he'll still get you fantasy numbers with every awkward slide.
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.

RGIII still shaky, and Texans pass D looks sick.

Major struggles in the preseason with learning how to become a pocket passer and now pitted against one of the better pass defenses doesn't bold well for Griffin and the Redskins gang in Week 1.
*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.
