Cardinals | Arizona wants long-term quarterback

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 13:53:26 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is returning for a 14th NFL season, but general manager Steve Keim admits that he wants to find a quarterback for the Cardinals long-term future. "You're not a GM for long if you don't find [a quarterback]," Keim said. "I have to do a better job with my staff and the coaching staff, we have to identify the right guy and put this organization in position to have success for years to come.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is nearing the end of his playing career at 37 years old, so the Cardinals could very well look to free agency or the draft this year for that possible answer. As for Palmer, he's a borderline QB1, but it's safer to draft him as a backup fantasy quarterback.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer will play in 2017

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 12:17:32 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has announced that he will play in 2017 after considering retirement.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is coming off a 2016 season where he recorded 4,233 yards, 26 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Palmer will have plenty of weapons to work with in the passing game, but he probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Bruce Arians expects Carson Palmer back

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 11:58:28 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he thinks QB Carson Palmer will "announce he's coming back real soon," in regards to his status for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Tip: With fellow veteran Larry Fitzgerald recently announcing that he'd back next year, there is strong belief that Palmer will indeed return as well. In an above-average offense that puts up a lot of points, the former No. 1 overall draft pick will have potential to put up some desirable numbers, but coming off a down campaign last season, he should be considered more of a QB2 on draft day in most leagues.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer decision coming soon?

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 19:46:40 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is reportedly "tied to the hip" with WR Larry Fitzgerald in terms of their playing futures. Fitzgerald announced Wednesday, Feb. 1, he will return for another season, suggesting it is a "good sign" Palmer will do the same.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer has been noncommittal about his playing future to this point. He has indicated his intention is to play, but that it will depend on how his body recuperates from "the most physically trying season of his career." It seems more probable than not Palmer plays at least one more year, but Arizona needs to ramp up its efforts to find his successor. Palmer turned 37 in December and should be treated as midrange QB2 in 2017 should he decide to keep playing.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer addresses rumor

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 09:14:52 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Palmer has yet to confirm his intentions for 2017, but most signs point to the veteran returning. He would be a QB2 in fantasy drafts.

Cardinals | Bruce Arians expects stars back in '17

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 18:52:39 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians expects both QB Carson Palmer and WR Larry Fitzgerald to return in 2017. He feels "comfortable with where they're at" and added, "I think when the juices start flowing and the injuries go away, they'll both be back. But there's nothing to confirm yet."

Fantasy Tip: At this point early into Arizona's offseason, it's still unknown if both stars plan on continuing their respective careers. Fitzgerald is 33 years old and coming off his eighth 1,000-yard season, so there is certainly no doubt that he can still play at an elite level, which could point to him returning. Palmer, 37, isn't as much a sure bet to come back, especially after somewhat of a down campaign, but Arians hinted that one's decision could affect the other, so the early indication is both will keep playing in '17.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer mum about retirement plans

Sun, 29 Jan 2017 12:40:09 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has yet to confirm whether he intends to return for another season or retire. At least one prominent general manager and two coaches around the league believe Palmer has played his last down.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is coming off a physically punishing and overall trying season during which he looked almost nothing like he did in 2015, when he was in the running for league MVP. The 37-year-old picked it up late in the season, but with Larry Fitzgerald also contemplating his future and Arizona possibly in the midst of an offensive makeover, Palmer may decide to call it a career.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer had issues on the road

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 13:32:56 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer threw for 1,821 yards, 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on the road this season. He threw for 2,412 yards, 13 touchdowns and only three interceptions at home.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer has not announced if he will play in 2017, but he probably will be back with the Cardinals. He has posted solid numbers of the last few seasons and will have a number of weapons to work with in the passing game. Owners should consider Palmer a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues and a No. 2 quarterback in standard leagues.

Cardinals | Coach expects Carson Palmer to return

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 09:19:55 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said QB Carson Palmer has not told him if he will continue his playing career but he believes Palmer will play in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer saw his numbers drop this past season and finished the season with 4,233 yards, 26 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 15 games. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because Palmer can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues if he returns.

Cardinals | Arizona in the QB market?

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 16:32:16 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is under contract through 2018, but head coach Bruce Arians said in his postseason news conference that the team needs to find a successor for Palmer.

Fantasy Tip: Even if the Cardinals spend an early pick on a quarterback, Palmer should still be running the show in 2017, and he can be trusted as a quality QB2.
