2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
With Jason Campbell out and the Raiders desperate to hang on in the tight AFC West, they swapped 1st and 2nd round draft choices with Cincinnati in order to acquire Carson Palmer. Palmerís acquisition failed to spark an Oakland playoff berth but his performance in 2011 suggests the team has the quarterback position stabilized for the next several years. While his statistics from last season (2,753 passing yards, 13 touchdowns, 16 interceptions in ten games) were a notch above ugly, he clearly had a number of factors working against him. He was given precious little time to learn the teamís playbook and starting running back Darren McFadden was lost for the season in Palmerís first game with the team, forcing Palmer to lean heavily on Darrius Heyward-Bey and Denarius Moore. A closer look reveals that Palmer threw six of his interceptions in his first two games and four more in a blowout loss to the Packers, meaning he threw six picks in his other seven games. In addition, he threw for 299 or more yards in five of his nine starts. With an improved offensive line, hopefully 16 games with McFadden in the lineup and a healthy, more established group of wide receivers, look for Palmer to have a more impressive 2012 season. Consider him a solid QB2 with upside.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Carson Palmer ruled out for TNF     -- Thu Oct 6 7:20 pm --

Concussion; did not make the trip to San Francisco
Carson Palmer will not play Thursday night versus the San Francisco 49ers. Drew Stanton will make his first start of the season. Palmer suffered a concussion on Sunday in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Coach Bruce Arians said Palmer made progress in recovery, but won't travel with the team out of precaution. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: Despite Arians' optimism earlier in the week, Palmer wasn't going to play less than four full days after suffering a concussion. Stanton should be good enough to keep the Cardinals' playmakers afloat in fantasy, but don't expect any huge performances from anyone outside of perhaps David Johnson. Stanton can be ignored even in two-quarterback leagues.
Injury Drew Stanton to start Thursday night     -- Wed Oct 5 2:45 pm --

Palmer won't make the trip
Quarterback Carson Palmer will not travel with the Arizona Cardinals to the Bay Area and has been ruled out against the San Francisco 49ers, coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Palmer suffered a concussion in Week 4 so it's not surprising on a short week that Drew Stanton will get the call. Palmer has thrown six TDs in four games so Stanton may not be as big of downgrade as it may appear. That said, even in a plus matchup against the San Francisco Stanton is more of a QB2.
Injury Optimism Carson Palmer will play Week 5     -- Mon Oct 3 6:05 pm --

Suffered concussion in Week 4 loss to Rams
HC Bruce Arians more optimistic (today) that Carson Palmer (concussion) could play Thursday. Day to day. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Arians tends to be more optimistic than most coaches regarding injuries, so it is fair to be skeptical of his endorsement. It's hard to feel great about using Palmer this week given how much Thursday night games seem to affect passing games because Drew Stanton isn't going to carry Larry Fitzgerald or John Brown to fantasy glory. Unless there is a glowing report about Palmer's status over the next 48 hours, owners should probably plan on playing another quarterback in Week 5.
