Waiver Wire Pickups

Derek Carr, QB, Oakland Raiders (Owned in 4% of Yahoo! Leagues): The young gunslinger is perhaps the only glimmer of hope for Oakland Raiders fans. After throwing four touchdowns against a very tough San Diego defense, he is one of the better options as a No. 2 quarterback for the coming bye weeks. He is building a connection with his bevy of wide receivers and has the chance to put up top-15 numbers every week from here on in.

Carson Palmer, QB, Arizona Cardinals (30% Y!): After sitting out for more than a month with a nerve injury in his throwing shoulder, Palmer returned Sunday against the Washington Redskins and revitalized the Arizona Cardinals’ passing game by throwing for 250 yards. Arizona loves to throw the ball, and Palmer has good amount of weapons. Pick him up as a streamer quarterback option for bye weeks.

Football season is upon us. After the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos opened the NFL regular season Thursday night, the rest of the league is ready to take its turn.

No one should be more welcome to see the end of the NFL preseason more than the Buffalo Bills, whose training camp and preseason included injuries to top cornerback Stephon Gilmore, top defensive playmaker and free safety Jairus Byrd, top wide receiver Stevie Johnson and a possible career-ending injury to quarterback Kevin Kolb.

While Johnson is ready for the start of the season, the rest will all be on the sidelines (Byrd is listed as doubtful on the team’s injury report) when the Bills take the field against their AFC East rivals, the New England Patriots, on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
