Big Days For Ben/Carson

Ben Roethlisberger and Carson Palmer have played very well in recent weeks despite being ignored on the wire in many leagues.

Analysis: Roethlisberger has 9 touchdown passes to just 3 interceptions in his last three games. During that stretch he has thrown for 971 yards and he has done it against competent defenses(NE/BUF/DET). Although the Steelers are still not running the ball well they remain committed to the run which has made things a bit more manageable for Ben. As it stands now Ben is available in 15-20% of fantasy leagues. Up next for Roethlisberger is the Browns in week twelve followed by the Ravens.

Carson Palmer is on a hot streak of his own. The Cards have won three straight games and Palmer has thrown 6 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in that span. Today he threw for 419 yards against the Jags, completing 30 of his 42 passes. Up next for Palmer is Indy this coming week followed by Philly. Palmer still has the Rams, Seahawks and Niners left which aren’t great match-ups but we will see where his level of play is after the Indy and Philly games. He is available in 50-90% of fantasy leagues.
