Oakland Raiders – 13, Miami Dolphins – 35It certainly looks like the Raiders are going to be behind a lot, which means a lot of garbage time yards and scores for Carson Palmer (380 total yards, 1 TD, 1 INT).  He’s going to be worth starting at some point, and very well could be a top 15 QB this year in terms of fantasy stats.Like Weeden and Luck, Ryan Tannehill (214 yards, 2 TDs) bounced back nicely and had a fairly useful fantasy day, which I’m sure helped absolutely no one.  Tannehill may someday develop into a good fantasy QB, but it won’t be this year.  It’s just good to note that he won’t completely kill the prospects of the Miami passing game.Another week, another surprising stat line for TE Brandon Myers (6-86).  While Greg Knapp’s offense looks archaic, it’s starting to make Myers a viable candidate to be rostered in TE mandatory leagues.   Denarius Moore (3-67) came back for this game and shook off some rust to look good on a couple of catches, while Darrius Heyward-Bey (4-41)
