Cardinals | Carson Palmer may be limited Sunday

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 08:01:46 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is not expected to see as much playing time as some of the other starters during the third preseason game Sunday, Aug. 30, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer seems fine after coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament last season. He will have a solid receiver corps to work with in 2015 and could be a good No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer will not play much Saturday

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 11:27:26 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer will play only one series in the first preseason game Saturday, Aug. 15, no matter how many snaps it lasts, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Starting players do not play much in the first preseason game, so owners should not be worried about Palmer's playing time. Palmer will have a solid group of receivers to work with and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

Cardinals | JJ Nelson impressing

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 17:01:46 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR JJ Nelson showed impressive flashes in practice Wednesday, Aug. 5. QB Carson Palmer praised Nelson prior to practice.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson could be a candidate to make up for any lost production from Michael Floyd's injury. Nelson averaged 18.7 yards per reception at UAB last season, and he could be a FantasyScore option for GPP tournaments as a big-play threat.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer doing well

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 11:32:24 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) continues to make great progress in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer posted solid numbers before he suffered the season-ending injury. It looks like he is on track for the start of the regular season and could be a low-end No. 1 or a solid No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues this season.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer stronger

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 12:54:47 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has supposedly improved his arm strength since last season. Palmer is much healthier overall, as well, including his knee and shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer's fantasy stock should continue to rise if he is indeed healthier and stronger. He could surprise some people this season if he can stay healthy. The Cardinals have a solid aerial assault on paper with Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and John Brown. He still shouldn't be considered a fantasy starter, however.

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:00:22 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) has been cleared to participate in practice and will not be limited during training camp or preseason games.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer working out

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 10:42:39 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) has been working out with WR John Brown in California since the end of offseason workouts and said that he has not had any problems with his surgically repaired knee. QB Drew Stanton and TEs Troy Niklas and Ifeanyi Momah have also participated in some of the workouts, while Palmer said WRs Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd could take part in some future workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer should be ready for the start of training camp and the regular season after missing a majority of last season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Palmer will have several weapons to work with on offense and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or a solid backup in most fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer not limited

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 11:13:34 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) is no longer limited following his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Palmer participated in 11-on-11 team drills Tuesday, June 9, during minicamp.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer will serve as an excellent backup fantasy quarterback this year. He's dealt with his fair share of knee injuries in his career and is now in his mid-thirties, which factor into him not being starting fantasy quarterback material any longer.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer cleared

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 06:56:12 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) was cleared for 11-on-11 work Tuesday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer doesn't have age on his side, but that could make him slip in drafts. He's a solid mid-to-upper-range QB2.

Cardinals | Arizona using more no-huddle offense

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 11:17:11 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) may be throwing more out of the no-huddle offense in 2015. The Cardinals worked on the no-huddle offense Monday, June 1, and head coach Bruce Arians said he believes they'll use that type of offense more this season. Palmer continues to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He has not been able to practice the no-huddle offense as he has not taken part in 11-on-11 drills yet.

Fantasy Tip: More of a no-huddle offense could help protect Palmer better as the opposition would ideally wear down quicker. Palmer would also ideally get rid of the ball quicker. He's still a risky play this year, however, considering his age (35) and injury history.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer sees ticking clock

Fri, 22 May 2015 06:34:27 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) understands that at age 35, with two knee reconstructions under his belt, time is ticking, according to Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians. Palmer has been rehabbing diligently, exceeding expectations six months following surgery, and has a sense of urgency, Arians said.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is a low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues. He has the tools around, in a pass-first system, with an improved offensive line. Staying healthy will all but ensure he ranks within the top 15 of fantasy passers in the upcoming year. Target Palmer, followed by a competent backup, once the elite names come off the board in the Rounds 8-12 area of fantasy drafts.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer held out of drills

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:50:14 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) was held out of 11-on-11 drills Tuesday, May 19, during organized team activities. Palmer did, however, participate in 7-on-7 drills.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is still supposedly a couple months away from being at 100%. At this point in his career he's past the stage of being a QB1 and should only be drafted as a backup and/or bye-week replacement.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer will wear brace

Tue, 19 May 2015 12:46:28 -0700

Cardinals | Carson Palmer does drills

Tue, 05 May 2015 05:31:23 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) participated in on-field drills with the team Monday, May 4. He handed the ball off to the running backs and threw short, intermediate and deep throws to his receivers. While the action wasn't close to replicating game-like conditions, Palmer said joining the rest of the team on the field was a big mental boost after missing the last eight games of the 2014 season.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is probably a solid QB2 at this stage of his career coming off an ACL tear.

Cardinals | Big season for Larry Fitzgerald?

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 19:11:49 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald and QB Carson Palmer were finally on the same page last season, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald was on pace to reach 1,000 yards last season when Palmer went down with a knee injury, and if both players stay healthy in 2015, Fitzgerald could have a solid season. However, don't count on Fitzgerald being more than a No. 3 receiver for your fantasy team.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer's deal restructured

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 09:14:50 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has had his contract restructured, giving the Cardinals an extra $7.1 million in salary cap space.

Fantasy Tip: If Palmer can stay healthy in 2015, and with the return of WR Larry Fitzgerald, he can serve as a nice QB2, but shouldn't be considered a starting fantasy quarterback at this point in his career.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer says he'll be ready

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 14:05:18 -0800

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) said he has been running for two or three weeks and throwing five times a week. He is "pretty close" to being able to participate in a normal workout, and he said he moved past his post-surgery "funk" when he was able to sweat during workouts. "I'm going to be ready to rock 'n' roll by the season," Palmer said. "Definitely going to be ready by that, definitely going to be ready for camp. And shooting to be getting reps in our mandatory (minicamp) and hopefully some of our OTA practices."

Fantasy Tip: As long as Palmer doesn't overdo it this offseason, we have confidence that he'll be ready to go for the start of the 2015 season. At age 35, Palmer can still be an effective quarterback in the NFL, when healthy. The Cardinals are intent on adding a running back to compete with Andre Ellington, too. Palmer will still be able to deliver QB1 production in the right matchups, but he'll likely be best off as your backup fantasy QB.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer reworks deal

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 12:57:33 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he agreed to restructure his contract this offseason in order to create some salary cap space for the team.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer should be the starting quarterback next season as long as he is healthy. He likely will be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback most weeks but could be a starting option against certain matchups.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer may be ready for camp

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 12:56:36 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) said he is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and expects to be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Carson probably will not do much during offseason workouts, but it appears he could be ready for the start of camp. Palmer played very well before suffering the injury and will have weapons to work with on offense. Palmer should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season who could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback against certain matchups.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer might restructure

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 21:57:03 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer might restructure his contract to ease his cap number of $14.5 million for 2015, according to a source. As long as the team does not increase his salary they can redo the deal he just signed during the 2014 season. According to reports, a $9.5 million roster bonus might be converted to a signing bonus.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer will be the starter in Arizona if he can stay healthy. He had a nightmare season in 2014 with injuries, but he can still be very solid for fantasy owners with Arizona's strong receiving corps and the good hands of running backs out of the backfield.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer ahead of schedule

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 11:45:44 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) is ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation process, according to general manager Steve Keim. Keim said Palmer is doing some running, looks fantastic and is more energetic than ever. Palmer tore his anterior cruciate ligament in 2014 for the second time in his career.

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Carson Palmer is still a No. 2 fantasy quarterback; plus, we still don't know if Larry Fitzgerald will be returning. Draft Palmer as your backup or bye-week replacement for 2015.

Fri, 06 Feb 2015 06:17:37 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer's (knee) $1 million base salary and $9.5 million roster bonus became fully guaranteed Friday, Feb. 6.

Fantasy Tip: It's safe to say Palmer will be back as starter when he returns to health. He's a midrange QB2 in traditional leagues.

Tue, 20 Jan 2015 15:18:38 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) is ahead of schedule and could return for organized team activities this offseason, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is on the tail end of his career and shouldn't be considered more than a low-end No. 2 quarterback heading into next year's drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but it appears like he will be ready for training camp. Palmer may not be a starting quarterback in most leagues next season but would be a solid No. 2 quarterback.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer expected to return in 2015

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 11:25:27 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) has no further damage in his left knee other than a torn anterior cruciate ligament, and he's expected to be ready for the 2015 season, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: You can drop Palmer in single-year formats now that he's officially out for the year. Drew Stanton will take over as the starter. He's comfortable in the system and led the team to several wins earlier this year. Consider Stanton a matchup play at FantasyScore for the rest of the season.

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 11:15:06 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 10 and will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer can be dropped in single-year leagues because of this news. Drew Stanton will take over as the starting quarterback and could be picked up by owners desperate for quarterbacks. Owners on FantasyScore probably should look at Stanton as a matchup play most weeks.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer undergoing tests

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 09:48:26 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) is undergoing more tests on his injured left knee Monday, Nov. 10. The team fears that Palmer suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 10, which is the same injury he had in 2006. Head coach Bruce Arians said the team may know more about the severity of the injury Tuesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't look good for Palmer. If it is indeed an ACL tear, Palmer will be done for the year and may struggle to be ready for the start of the 2015 season. Drew Stanton has played well in Palmer's absence this year, but he's more of a game manager, and he'll struggle to put up consistent points for a fantasy squad.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer, who just signed a three-year extension, will be replaced by Drew Stanton under center to finish up the game. It appeared Palmer might have suffered a serious injury.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer unbeaten as starter

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 14:16:11 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer completed 22 of his 34 pass attempts for 249 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys. Palmer improved to 5-0 as a starter this season.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer has at least 249 yards passing and two or more touchdown strikes in each of his five outings this season. When healthy, he is a solid quarterback to use in FantasyScore, especially since his salary isn't quite at the same level as the elite options at his position.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer close to 100%

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 18:59:00 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) threw at team headquarters Tuesday, Oct. 21, and is "real close" to 100% percent, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer has already looked good since returning from a nerve issue in his shoulder, throwing for a combined 503 yards and four touchdowns in two starts. He will take up 14.6% of the cap ($7,300) at FantasyScore in Week 8, and he should post another solid stat line against a Philadelphia defense ranked 23rd against the pass. For fantasy owners that don't want to pay top dollar for a quarterback, Palmer should make a nice mid-level alternative.

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer's agent, David Dunn, and the team have opened contract negotiations. "I won't get into specific points of the negotiations but we've had some dialogue with Dave Dunn," Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said. "He (Palmer) has done a great job for us."

Fantasy Tip: Palmer tossed two touchdowns last week in his first start since returning from a nerve injury in his shoulder, and with a matchup against the winless Oakland Raiders on tap in Week 7, he is worth considering at FantasyScore. He will take up 14.6% of the cap ($7,300).

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 19:17:25 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Oct. 15, due to his right shoulder ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer apparently made it through his Week 6 return last week with no setbacks, but check back Friday just to make sure he is still on target to play again in Week 7. At just $7,300 or 14.6 percent of the cap in FantasyScore, he is a decent mid-level option.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer needs practice reps

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:04:51 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) said his right shoulder felt great Monday, Oct. 13, but he needs as many repetitions in practice this week as possible heading into Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders. He won't throw Wednesday, Oct. 15, but head coach Bruce Arians said the plan is for him to do "hopefully everything" in practice. Palmer is unsure how long it'll take to regain full strength in his arm. "It's going to take a while. It's going to take at least a week of throwing, I would think. It's kind of what I'm expecting to really get it back. It just needs to get back in shape. It's just out of shape. It's like sitting on the couch after training camp -- you have a knee issue or high ankle sprain, you just get out of shape, you get out of the football shape. My arm's out of throwing shape, and that'll come back," Palmer said.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer has a fine matchup against the Raiders this week. He'll cost you $7,300 at FantasyScore in Week 7. Consider using him if you want to save a little cash at the quarterback position.

Cardinals | Cards not concerned about Carson Palmer

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 17:00:54 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) said the pain subsided enough for him to get a good night's rest after the team's Week 6 win Sunday, Oct. 12, and head coach Bruce Arians said Palmer's nerve in his right shoulder didn't regress after playing against the Washington Redskins. "I was concerned until I saw him today," Arians said. "And then now he feels great, so we should just get better and better and just get stronger." Arians is hopeful that Palmer will take part in all practices this week.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Palmer's nerve doesn't have any setbacks, he'll remain a nice stream option at quarterback moving forward, based on matchups. In Week 7, he has another nice matchup against the Oakland Raiders.

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 12:03:15 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) is active for the team's Week 6 game.

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) is likely to play Sunday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer ($7,100; 14.2% of your cap) isn't a real wise buy, considering rust is a distinct possibility. There are better options on FantasyScore in his price range.

Cardinals | Cardinals QB a game-time decision?

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 13:47:09 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) was throwing at around 80 percent and some decent velocity Friday, Oct. 10, but head coach Bruce Arians said all three quarterbacks could be active in Week 6 against the Washington Redskins. A decision on who will start might not come until around game time, and it'll depend on health. Both Palmer and QB Drew Stanton (concussion) were limited Friday in practice and are questionable for Sunday, Oct. 12. Stanton has yet to take or pass his concussion test.

Fantasy Tip: It's best to avoid the Cardinals quarterback situation entirely at FantasyScore. If Logan Thomas ends up starting, that hurts all of the Arizona receivers.

Cardinals | Limited practice for Carson Palmer

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 17:05:08 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) was listed as having limited participation in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Drew Stanton, who has filled in for Palmer the past three games, also was limited, so rookie Logan Thomas received first-team snaps in practice. Neither of the trio is particularly attractive in FantasyScore in Week 6.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton limited

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 13:28:38 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QBs Carson Palmer (shoulder) and Drew Stanton (concussion) will both be limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8. Stanton isn't fully cleared from his concussion but can do some throwing.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer and Stanton seem very questionable for Week 6 against the Washington Redskins. Neither would be smart plays at FantasyScore.
