Carson Palmer Traded to Raiders

According to multiple reports, the Bengals and Raiders have agreed to a deal that would send veteran QB Carson Palmer to the Raiders for a 1st round pick in 2012 and another conditional pick in 20103.

You’d have to think Palmer is in decent shape for this deal to go down, so this is good news for their offense and their WRs, especially Darrius Heyward-Bey, who is really their main possession receiver on the outside. Palmer may not have a great arm at this point in his career to get the ball down the field to their speedy WRs, but while Palmer has been shaky the last couple of years, this is still an upgrade and helps their offense overall, including their running game, when you consider the alternative (Kyle Boller).

With this trade, Palmer is a fantasy backup only in this run-based offense, but he’d have some upside each week because they will always take deep shots to guys like Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore. We can see him averaging 230-240 yards and 1-2 TDs a game.

Palmer has reportedly been working out with former NFL QB Ken O’Brien and has a connection to Raider HC Hue Jackson from their time together [...]

Fantasy Guru Daily: 6/13/11

Things are definitely looking optimistic on the labor front, but with those meetings taking place in private, we will continue to focus on the news that directly relates to what happens on the field.

No, that's not your local real estate agent, it's Brett Ratliff, the longest-tenured NFL QB the Titans have…for now.

Titans will stick with Britt, could see Collins return … Last week was not one to remember for WR Kenny Britt. He avoided serious legal ramifications by pleading to a lesser charge stemming from car-chase incident that took place in April and had to pay a small fine. However, just one day later, he was arrested and charged with obstruction, tampering with evidence, and resisting arrest after officers in New Jersey saw what they thought was marijuana in his hand. Britt is once again expected to avoid any serious charges, but the Titans are not expected to let him off easy although they do consider him the best player on the team outside of RB Chris Johnson. Speaking of the Titan O, QB Kerry Collins, currently a free agent, has an expressed an interest in returning to the team in the right situation, saying, “If it makes sense [...]

  • Week 16 storylines December 19, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 16 for fantasy. Philadelphia (9-5) at Washington (3-11) Robert Griffin III did play better last week, but does it mean anything? It’s hard to trust him even against a beatable secondary and a defense that lost a top pass rusher in Trent Cole. If you’re playing in Week 17, can you trust DeSean Jackson, […]

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]

    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups. Pittsburgh (7-5) at Cincinnati (8-3-1) Can Ben Roethlisberger play better against a solid secondary that has limited him to only 16.0 points a game against them in his last four games? Is Heath Miller someone we can actually trust in th […]
