Rivers has not been good against Kansas City over his last four matchups with them. I expect him to be better than he has been, but we still should lower expectations. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Kansas City struggled at home against Philly last week and Rivers is flirting with QB1 value again this year. 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.
