Cardinals | Carson Palmer to improve in 2016?

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 21:53:06 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Palmer carries some injury risk, but he has the weapons around him to deliver another solid season of QB1 production.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer not dwelling on loss

Sun, 20 Mar 2016 17:13:23 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he has turned the page on the playoff loss to the Carolina Panthers and won't let one game define him.

Fantasy Tip: While Palmer's playoff history can be questioned, his fantasy value cannot. He has the weapons around him to be a solid QB1 again in 2016.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer receives guarantees

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 06:25:29 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer's $7.15 million base salary and $6.35 million roster bonus are fully guaranteed Friday, Feb. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer had a huge regular season before imploding in the playoffs. His 4,671 passing yards and 35 TDs put him among high-end QB1s. He'll play at age 36, but he's a midrange QB1 option.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer expected to rebound

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 19:14:00 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (finger) is expected to bounce back to lead the team in 2016, general manager Steve Keim said in a radio interview Monday, Jan. 25. "There is nobody I respect and appreciate more than Carson Palmer," Keim said. "In a league full of teams who are looking for a quarterback, I'm certainly proud he's our guy."

Fantasy Tip: Palmer got off to a huge start to the season, throwing for 27 touchdowns with seven 300-yard games in his first 10 outings. However, he tailed off slightly in the final six regular season games and two playoff outings, tossing three touchdowns just once while hitting the 300-yard mark just three times in his final eight starts. Still, he has plenty of high-end receivers to make him a fantasy stud again in 2016.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer will let finger heal

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 14:25:51 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (finger) won't be playing in the Pro Bowl in order to let his injured finger heal. He will not need surgery, however. Head coach Bruce Arians said that he didn't think the finger was an issue against the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship, but added that Palmer probably should not have played in Week 17 of the regular season because of the finger.

Fantasy Tip: The extra week of rest may or may not have made much of a difference, but the Cardinals did lose by 34 points. Unfortunately, Palmer saved his worst game of the season for the most important game of the season. He'll have plenty of time to get that finger back to full strength before offseason activities. As long as he's at full health, Palmer is a starting fantasy quarterback.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer tosses four picks

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 19:31:23 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer completed 23 of 40 passes for 235 yards, a touchdown and four interceptions in a 49-15 loss to the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Although his season ended on a sour note, Palmer showed that he can still be a solid QB1 when healthy.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer has finger issue

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 11:45:20 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer's (finger) injured finger has been more of an issue than he's let on, although the finger did look better in practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: The finger shouldn't be too much of a hindrance to Palmer, but he does face a tough test in the Carolina Panthers. Palmer ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) hasn't thrown for more than 300 yards in his last three games, so don't expect gaudy numbers from the veteran quarterback, but he's still worth a start in your FantasyScore lineups.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer should be on the field

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 13:35:00 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (finger) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 22, and is listed as probable for the NFC Championship game against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) probably will not be limited by his finger injury and will see his normal amount of passes during the game. He will be facing a tough Panthers defense but could still be a decent option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer good on the road

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 10:30:24 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer led the league in points per game (32.8), yards per game (426.3) and passing yards per game (292.8) on the road this year. He's also generated the highest passer rating (121.2) in the second half of games this year, although he's really struggled in the first half of the last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of Josh Norman, the Carolina Panthers secondary is suspect, and Palmer ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) will expose them with his awesome receiving corps if Carolina's front line doesn't pressure him much. Palmer is a good option for daily gamers in the NFC Championship game, and many players might look away after a disappointing last two games for the veteran QB.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer good at deep ball

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 16:04:05 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer had the third-most completions in the league this year of 20 yards or deeper down the field.

Fantasy Tip: After shutdown corner Josh Norman, the Carolina Panthers are a little weak in the secondary, so Palmer ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) could certainly thrive given the quality of his receivers. He's not the sexy pick this weekend, but he could bring you a win on FantasyScore.
