Dan Harris

 The Cowboys' passing defense is not nearly as strong as it was last year with its brand new secondary, as evidenced by how easily Trevor Siemian carved them up last week. But Palmer has done himself no favors in the fantasy community through the first two weeks, struggling mightily against both the Lions and the Colts. The loss of David Johnson clearly took its toll on the offense, and John Brown's absence, which should extend to this week, doesn't help either. But the matchup gives Palmer a chance to get right here, particularly in the Cardinals' home opener in a nationally-televised game. He's far from trustworthy and is nothing more than a mid-range QB2, but has the potential to get back in his fantasy owners' good graces in a plus matchup.
Bobby Sylvester

Don't buy into the narrative that Big Ben is terrible on the road. It has been a small sample size which should come to an end this weekend against a banged up Bears defense that was already crummy to begin with. He is a must-star in all league formats. 
Chet Gresham

We know Big Ben can be a dud on the road, but I believe this Pittsburgh offense should get things going soon, as Le'Veon Bell is likely ready to roll in this one, opening up the offense for Roethlisberger. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Big Ben is usually not as good on the road as he is at home, but he still has upside against a bad Bears secondary. Palmer has not looked strong out of the game, he is barely a streamer this week against a Dallas team that should be motivated to show their Week 2 meltdown in Denver was a fluke.
