Dan Harris

Ryan has been an incredible disappointment this season, with just six touchdowns against six interceptions. But this weekend's matchup is about as good as it gets. The Patriots have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks by a wide margin, and have allowed the most passing yards and most passing touchdowns in the league. Ryan has undoubtedly been stewing over the Super Bowl since February, and the Falcons will surely try to come out and "avenge" the loss. Look for Ryan to finish as a top-five quarterback this week.Palmer had his best game of the season last week against the Bucs, completing nearly 82 percent of his passes and throwing for three touchdowns. He'll now take on a Rams defense against which he had some success last year, averaging 272 passing yards and two touchdowns in two games. The Rams have been solid against opposing quarterbacks this season, but with a full arsenal of healthy wide receivers at his disposal, Palmer should be able to put up enough production to make him a borderline QB1.

The Patriots are 32nd against fantasy quarterbacks, look for Ryan to have a monster week on the road. The Rams are 17th against fantasy quarterbacks, Palmer should be in the QB2 discussion on the road this week.
