The Arizona Cardinals and Baltimore Ravens do not play until Monday night, but is it too early to start thinking about fantasy football? Never. Looking for some advice about Cardinals or Ravens players who you want play? Here is my fantasy advice.

If you want a more Ravens-centric perspective, here is some advice from Baltimore Beatdown.

Who to start

Carson Palmer, QB: The Ravens have been giving up passing yards like mad. Palmer has 14 TD passes in six games. Put two and two together and you get a smart fantasy move.

John Brown, WR: He broke out with nearly 200 yards against the Steelers and should have had a touchdown, but Palmer missed him in the end zone. The Ravens give up big plays. Brown is the Cardinals' big play threat. And despite a hamstring injury that caused  him to miss practice on Friday, he is expected to be a full go.

Justin Tucker, K: The Ravens have kept their games close. They can move the ball. But the Cardinals defense is pretty stingy. Field goals are what to expect.

Who to sit

Steve Smith, WR: He has been the number one read almost every single play, but he is matching up against Patrick Peterson, who has been fantastic. Antonio Brown was limited to three catches for 24 yards. Calvin Johnson went for five and 67. His primary target the two previous weeks were shut out.

Crockett Gilmore, TE: The Cardinals have allowed the least fantasy point to TEs in the league. Wait, what? Yes, it is true, and the defense is ninth in the league against the pass. While many other key tight ends are on their bye, Gilmore might not be the best bet.
