Both the 49ers and Arizona Cardinals enter their game at Candlestick Sunday with 3-2 records.
Every year around this time, I find myself getting asked the same question over and over again from people who know I enjoy football. “So, who do you like this season?”
Anybody who watched the Cardinals last year saw that they needed help at the quarterback position. Considering their options, Arizona has to be happy with their off-season addition of Carson Palmer.
Here’s a look at some sleepers that could pay dividends in your fantasy league.
The Oakland Raiders trade Carson Palmer and acquire Matt Flynn from Seattle. Once again, what are the Raiders thinking? Just Stupidity, Baby. Trading for Flynn is desperate. The Oakland Raiders are screwed at their quarterback position.
The Raiders acquired Seattle backup Matt Flynn on Monday for draft picks, bringing an end to Carson Palmer’s brief tenure as starter in Oakland even before they are done paying the steep price they dealt to acquire him.
Matt Flynn is on his way from Seattle to Oakland as the Raiders’ new quarterback, replacing Carson Palmer who appears headed to Arizona. A fifth year pro, Flynn has only started two NFL games. Last season he backed up Seahawks star Russell Wilson.
The Oakland Raiders are expected to complete a trade for Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Flynn shortly, according to National Football League sources.
Ever since Carson Palmer came out of his semi-retirement to accept a trade to the Raiders, his tenure in Oakland has been filled with more disappointments than triumphs.
The Oakland Raiders have released defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, who started every game the last two seasons. The move saves the team $4.8 million against the salary cap this year.
