Buffalo's defense has been a mess this season, thanks to countless pre-season injuries. Palmer should have no problem piling up points against the Bills, but Johnson may be the primary fantasy asset, as the Bills' front seven is in worse shape than the secondary.Eli has been unspectacular even against two lousy defenses. Odell Beckham just hasn't seemed quite like himself and should be covered the majority of the game by shutdown corner, Josh Norman, so don't be surprised to see Manning's struggles continue in Week 3.
Chet Gresham

The Bills are allowing QBs to complete 68.7 percent of their passes for 316 yards and a touchdown per game. Those numbers came from Joe Flacco and Ryan Fitzpatrick as well. I expect Palmer to have a strong game in Buffalo. Manning was a big letdown last week despite throwing for over 300 yards because he didn't throw a single touchdown. He'll face Washington's secondary led by Josh Norman, who were pummeled by the Steelers, but did hold Dak Prescott from throwing a touchdown last week. I expect their pass defense to get better, but Manning has the offensive weapons to put up good numbers on about anyone.

Palmer and the explosive Cardinals offense travels to Buffalo to face the Bills. He produced 0.77 fantasy points per drop back in Week 2 and face a defense that was shredded by the Jets that same week. We view Palmer as a low-end QB1.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bills secondary is a disaster, I expect all the Cardinals offensive players to play well this week.Eli was underwhelming against the Saints, but he should still be on the QB2 radar this week.
