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.Manning and the entire Giants offense has looked awful this season, as the offensive line is simply unable to get a push forward for the run game or keep defenders from getting pressure on Manning consistently. He'll now fact an Eagles team that has the fourth highest sack percentage in football in their home opener. Odell Beckham Jr. should be closer to 100 percent and Manning did relatively well against the Eagles last year (613 passing yards, five touchdowns), but it's difficult to see him being relevant in a league of any size given how he's played so far this year. To the extent Manning is to have any fantasy relevance this year, it's unlikely to be against the Eagles in Week 3.

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.
