Carson Palmer will be a hot commodity on the waiver wire this week after the Cincinnati Bengals traded him to the Oakland Raiders for a pair of high draft picks. I can't imagine that someone in your fantasy league already has Palmer on his or her roster...

I began the day with a blog about the Ravens’ plan to upgrade their wide receiving corps and that’s how I’m going to end it.
Both General Manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh discussed the matter today and their comments...
