Fantasy football: Our contributors Matt Doyle, James Royal, Jason Collington and Matt Clayton hand out advice throughout the fantasy football season.
Start this guy
Carson Palmer, Raiders QB: The Oakland signal-caller has been a more than adequate play the past two weeks. In fact, he is an ideal fantasy play. The Raiders stink, which forces them to throw, throw and throw some more. This week, they play an awful New Orleans defense which should allow Palmer to post another 300-yard, two-touchdown afternoon.

Sit this guy
Michael Turner, Falcons RB: He is showing every bit of his 30 years of age and nine years in the NFL. The Falcons have become more pass happy this season, but that is no excuse for Turner's inability to deliver in short-yardage situations. He was stuffed three times on such plays last week at New Orleans. If the Falcons can't trust him, why should you?

Dez Bryant will have his best game this season Sunday. Bryant is coming off a strong game against Philadelphia (three catches for 87 yards and a touchdown). He plays better at home than on the road (92.3 receiving yards and six catches per game at home vs. 52.2 yards and four catches on the road). The Browns are 22nd in the NFL in receiving defense, giving up 259.1 yards per game, and they've given up 16 TDs through the air. Look for Bryant to put up some points this week.
