In an attempt to go from potential laughing-stock to purely mediocre, several teams have made moves to acquire new QBs in the last week. The lowly Bills started off by luring in Kevin Kolb and placing him atop the depth chart. That reign figures to be short-lived, as the team will undoubtedly draft a rookie who should be able to win the job outright. Either way, a free agent or rookie WR figures to have Buffalo near the bottom of his wish list.
The Raiders are making news by coughing up a pair of draft picks to ensure they won’t have to overpay Carson Palmer in 2013. Oakland is in the process of picking up Matt Flynn from the Seahawks, and is expected to give Palmer a trip to the airport with a one-way ticket to Phoenix. Flynn figures to slide into a starting role in Oakland, although his suspect arm strength may limit the team’s downfield passing game.
Palmer potentially landing in Arizona would represent the best of the bunch in terms of fantasy upside. But don’t rewrite your cheat sheets just yet. He still represents an aging arm on a team with suspect potential outside of Larry Fitzgerald. He at least gives Fitz a fighting chance to regain WR1 fantasy status.
