2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
He’s getting a little long in the tooth as he heads into his 12th NFL season, but Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer may still have some fantasy relevance left in his arm. In 2013, Palmer threw for a career-high 4,274 yards, which was certainly nice to see from a fantasy standpoint. One glaring problem still remains in his game, though. After all these years, Palmer still throws too many passes to players wearing opposite-colored jerseys. Palmer’s career-high in yardage was offset by a career-high in interceptions (22). In fact, only Eli Manning (27) threw more picks than Palmer. While there is still reason to believe that Palmer will have games where he lights up the fantasy scoreboard – especially considering the duo of talented, big-bodied wide receivers that he has to throw to – the truth is that Palmer will probably never be a consistent fantasy starter again. He will play six in-division games against arguably the toughest defensive division in the league and that will almost certainly mean a high enough rate of interceptions that he should go off the board as a low-end QB2 or even potentially remain undrafted in most leagues.

Comment: Offense should move forward but Palmer is better as a QB2 with low-end QB1 upside.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Cardinals fear torn ACL for Carson Palmer
Drew Stanton expected to be starting QB
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 9, 7:41 am

Arizona Cardinals
Per multiple reports, the Cardinals fear that quarterback Carson Palmer has suffered a torn ACL in his left knee. It’s the same left knee in which Palmer tore an ACL on a low hit in the first throw of the wild-card game to cap the 2005 season. (ProFootballTalk)

FFToday's Take: A tough break for Palmer who just signed a three-year contract extension earlier this week. Drew Stanton will take over as the starting quarterback in Arizona. He was below average in three starts earlier this season completing 49 percent of his throws for 176 yards and .67 TDs per game against the Giants, 49ers and Broncos.


Injury Carson Palmer likely to start for Cardinals
Missed passed three games with nerve injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 12, 8:32 am

Arizona Cardinals
Big news for the Cardinals: QB Carson Palmer is slated to get the start for them, his first game back from a nerve injury. (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The team is expected to make a decision on Palmer a couple hours before the game but it appears he will start if all goes well. Palmer won't be 100 percent but his presence will help a Cardinals passing game that ranks 29th in the league. Michael Floyd had five catches for 119 yards with Palmer as the starting QB in Week 1.


Injury Cardinals starting QB still undecided
All QBs were at practice Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 10, 2:30 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Friday came and went, and the Cardinals do not know who will start at quarterback Sunday against the Redskins. “Honest to God, for the first time in 20 years, I really don’t know who’s starting,” coach Bruce Arians said. All the quarterbacks were at practice and throwing Friday. But Drew Stanton had yet to take/pass his concussion test and Carson Palmer was flying to Denver to have a late afternoon session at Muscle Activation Techniques, the place he got worked on last weekend. (AZCardinals.com)

FFToday's Take: If either Palmer or Stanton are cleared to play, they will get the nod over Logan Thomas. For now, Andre Ellington is the only Cardinals player with stable fantasy value until a starting quarterback is named.


Logan Thomas in line for first career start
Stanton likely out w/ concussion, Palmer (shoulder) limited
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 9, 6:25 pm

Arizona Cardinals
No Drew Stanton at open portion of Cardinals practice. Carson Palmer was there, throwing some, not quite as gingerly as before. (Darren Urban on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The 6-6, 250-pound Logan Thomas is a bit of a freakish athlete, but an incredibly raw quarterback prospect the Cards wanted to develop - and not play - this year. Although he should be on every dynasty league roster, Thomas can be avoided in redraft formats until further notice. Michael Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown all probably need to be benched in most fantasy leagues as well.


Injury Carson Palmer advised to rest shoulder
Surgery unlikely
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 2, 5:05 pm

Arizona Cardinals
After visiting with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins for additional information regarding his shoulder, Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has been diagnosed with an "axillary nerve contusion" - a numbness over part of the outer shoulder, shoulder weakness, especially when lifting the arm up and away from the body. HC Bruce Arians mentioned on Wednesday that Palmer could be doubtful for Thursday practice but it is possible he still could be the backup QB this weekend. A lot will depend on his condition Thursday through Sunday. (Fox Sports 910)

FFToday's Take: Palmer suffered the injury 25 days ago. The article goes on to say this type of injury tends to get better on its own and that some people do not need treatment (depending on the cause of the disorder), but that it can take months to recover in certain cases. As of now, Drew Stanton should be considered the starter for most of October, if not into November.
