    Big Ben vs. Carson Palmer

    I have a very solid team this year but my quarterbacks are average. After just about getting laughed out of Buffalo Wild Wings during my league's draft in August, I shut everyone up last week by putting up a league high in points thanks mostly to Larry Fitzgerald, Victor Cruz, Vernon Davis and the Cowboys defense. Now that my gloating is over, the question at hand: Ben vs. Carson. Palmer did pretty well last week and you know what Roethlisberger did. I don't want to give up on Ben yet but I think Palmer is going to be putting up numbers consistently under Arians. Advice? I need to be talked out of starting Ben basically.

    With the O-line that Ben has, I don't think he will have a chance to do much.

    Palmer the play for sure this week, Palmer is going to throw against Detroit because their d line is tough to run against. Also Fitzgerald is a beast he will do well against Detroit. Ben just can't be trusted fantasy wise to many questionable things on steelers offense.

    Palmer is going to throw more then Ben. Ben isn't really a fantasy QB. He's great don't get me wrong, but not stats great at times.

    Palmer will probably put up better numbers this year.

    Fantasy wise, Ben hasn't been great. That 2009 game against GreenBay he went off.

    I've won with Ben because I always take him late. However, this year I took Palmer too because I think he's going to be a stud. The only thing I'm worried about is if Fitzgerald doesn't play. If Fitz can't go I will probably start Ben and Emmanuel Sanders in the place of he and Palmer.
