Carson Palmer, Bengals – Moving Down
Palmer goes down a tick after a disappointing performance against the 49ers. Yes, he had 251 yards and a score, and yes, Chad Johnson dropped what would have been Palmer’s second touchdown, but his owners expected much more against the woeful San Francisco defense. But if you’re in the Super Bowl this week, use Palmer with confidence against Cleveland’s suspect pass D – weather permitting, of course. And the early forecast calls for snow showers and a high of 34 degrees.

David Garrard, Jaguars – Moving Up
Garrard has quietly put together an excellent run to close out the regular season, with seven TDs in his last three games and 10 in his last five. He may not have a great matchup on paper with the Raiders this week, especially considering how bad the Oakland defense has been, but Garrard is still worth a look if your No. 1 QB has a bad matchup or is facing weather concerns. Remember the name for next season, though; because there’s a good chance everybody else in your league will have forgotten Garrard come draft day.

Marc Bulger, Rams – Moving Up
Bulger was able to play the entire Green Bay game without suffering any more ill effects from his concussion, finishing with 219 yards and a touchdown. He’s worth serious consideration as a starter in fantasy championship games this week, even though he’s facing the Steelers. Pittsburgh has allowed seven passing scores in the last two weeks.

Shaun Hill, 49ers – Moving Up
Hill has put together a couple of pretty good outings since taking over from Trent Dilfer. Of course you won’t rely on him in the your important game of the season, but he’s another guy worth keeping an eye on during the off-season. The relationship between HC Mike Nolan and QB Alex Smith looks irreparably damaged. If Nolan doesn’t get fired, it looks like Smith will be someplace else. Hill would be a good bet to take over the No. 1 QB spot in San Francisco if that happens.

Kyle Boller, Ravens – Moving Down
Even though the injury he suffered against Miami was termed a “mild” concussion, it looked like Boller didn’t know who he was on the sideline. There’s a chance, apparently, that he could start this week against the Seahawks, but why would the Ravens risk it, especially against a tough defense that’s even tougher at home?

Kellen Clemens, Jets – Moving Down
Looks like we might have a good ol’ Quarterback Controversy in New York. Clemens was hurt early in the New England game, and his only pass was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. Reportedly, Clemens could have returned to the game, but HC Eric Mangini chose to go with former starter Chad Pennington. Early in the week, it hadn’t been announced who the starter would be against Tennessee.
