Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer was complimented by an anonymous safety recently, according to a source, who said that Palmer's game and work ethic are respected by not just him, but the Cardinals' locker room. The unnamed player said Palmer is the kind of leader the team needs at quarterback.
Fantasy Tip: Being a clubhouse leader and having a good work ethic are essential for a quarterback, but Palmer's time as a go-to fantasy quarterback is over. He's a nice quarterback-by-committee and/or backup option in standard leagues.

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he was impressed with how FB Robert Hughes performed during offseason workouts, especially his pass catching skills. "I think once you put pads on, he's 240 pounds and built like a bulldog and I think he's going to run through people and run over people. But I've been very shocked for a guy with his build and his power, how fluid he is running routes and how well he does adjusting to balls and catching balls and in the pass game he's been really good," Palmer said.

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 09:30:09 -0700

"If you are in a position to draft the best player on your board, and that's the best position to be in as an organization, and (a quarterback) is the best player on the board, you are not only making your team better by creating competition but you are helping out the future," Palmer said.
Sat, 08 Mar 2014 19:44:48 -0800

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 09:06:00 -0800
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians is convinced that QB Carson Palmer can be an effective quarterback in the league for a few more seasons. "There's no doubt," Arians said. "He's got plenty of juice left in the tank and he's in great condition and he's always been in great condition, so I would think he can play up to 36, 37."
Fantasy Tip: Palmer may have another year left in him of being a borderline low-end QB1 in the right matchups. He's probably best used as a solid backup QB. A solid offensive line in Arizona is the key, though.
Wed, 22 Jan 2014 11:17:41 -0800
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he does not think the team needs to take a quarterback in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft because they have QB Carson Palmer.

He has also failed to hit 300 yards passing in a game in each of the past three games after doing so in three straight outings from Week 11 through 13.

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (ankle) will be a game-time decision in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Palmer is recovering from a low-grade, high left ankle sprain and has been limited in practice all week. "Like you think it would be with an ankle sprain," Arians said. "He's OK. He's good enough to play. He can move around the pocket as well as he did last week."
Fantasy Tip: Drew Stanton would likely start if Palmer is held out. Palmer will likely play, but he's not a strong option for fantasy squads, especially on a bum ankle going up against the league's best all-around defense on the road.
Thu, 19 Dec 2013 16:17:33 -0800

However, even if he can play, he faces a very difficult matchup against the top-ranked pass defense of the Seattle Seahawks in Week 16. They allow just 174.2 yards per game through the air, dropping Palmer out of the Top 12 at his position as far as fantasy rankings are concerned.
Wed, 18 Dec 2013 11:34:20 -0800

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 06:16:22 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians expects QB Carson Palmer (elbow) to play in Week 14 against the St. Louis Rams despite dealing with an injury to his right elbow. Arians is calling Palmer a game-time decision and will wait until warm-ups Sunday to make a final decision. Palmer is listed as questionable after being limited in practice Friday, Dec. 6. "I've got to watch him warm up and throw and see how he is," Arians said. "I got all the confidence in the world he ain't missing." QB Drew Stanton would start if Palmer isn't able to go.
Fantasy Tip: Plan to stick with Palmer if you were already heading in that direction, but it doesn't hurt to check back Sunday morning to see if anything has changed. If you have another midrange QB1 type, it would be safer to go in that direction in case something goes wrong with the Cardinals' afternoon game.

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (elbow) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Thu, 05 Dec 2013 10:02:50 -0800
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer's (elbow) sore right elbow isn't believed to be a serious injury, and he's expected to play against the St. Louis Rams in Week 14. Palmer wasn't sharp in the team's Week 13 loss, underthrowing the ball several times on deep routes after possibly suffering the injury on the third play of the game when he was hit as he threw and fumbled. Palmer was diagnosed with a frayed ligament in his elbow in 2008 but opted not to have Tommy John surgery.
Fantasy Tip: It's possible that the injury could be worse than we imagine, but the Cardinals aren't saying much about it. Will this affect him for the rest of the year? There's no way of telling, but it'll be interesting to see how he bounces back against the St. Louis Cardinals. Assuming it's not a big deal, Palmer is a solid QB1 option this weekend.

Fri, 22 Nov 2013 12:44:11 -0800

Thu, 21 Nov 2013 15:05:12 -0800

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 18:11:32 -0800
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (hand) was able to practice fully Wednesday, Nov. 20, despite an injury to his right hand.

Sat, 16 Nov 2013 18:29:04 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he does not blame QB Carson Palmer for either of the interceptions he threw Week 7 because the pass protection struggled during the game.

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 10:35:47 -0700
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians seemed to leave the door open to making a change at quarterback after QB Carson Palmer threw two more interceptions against the Seattle Seahawks Thursday, Oct. 17. "It's the reasons for the interceptions. Is it his decision-making?" Arians said. "If it's his decision-making, then we make a change. But the first one to me was obvious pass interference and the safety makes a great play. The second one was just a poor decision. Those are the ones we have to look at."
Fantasy Tip: Despite Palmer's and the offensive line's struggles, the Cardinals don't really have another direction to turn to, unless they want to give Drew Stanton a shot. Palmer gives them the best chance for success this year, but it's not looking pretty and there are no signs for a turnaround near.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 15:26:45 -0700
Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said he believes QB Carson Palmer is still the team's best option at quarterback even though he has struggled with interceptions.

Fri, 04 Oct 2013 09:12:58 -0700
Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said head coach Bruce Arians' offensive system is the most complex and difficult offense he's had to learn in his career. He's only completed 57 percent of his passes for 1,010 yards and four touchdowns and six interceptions. The Cardinals rank 18th in the NFL in passing, 26th in rushing and 27th in overall offense. "It's the whole offense," WR Andre Roberts said. "He's (Palmer) not played well at times, receivers have not played as well at times, the offensive line, running backs. It's a team effort. Especially on offense, you've got to have all 11 guys on the same page." WR Larry Fitzgerald said there are "a lot of nuances" in the system, but if done right, "it's pretty invincible." Palmer has been sacked 10 times and will have a new left tackle, OT Bradley Sowell, protecting his blind side in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.
Fantasy Tip: There may still be hope for Palmer and the rest of Arizona's offensive production, but time is running out. The offensive line must do a better job at protecting Palmer and opening lanes for the running game. the Panthers' front seven will pose a tough test again this weekend.
Tue, 27 Aug 2013 08:57:39 -0700
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he plans to play most of his starters only briefly in the preseason finale against the Denver Broncos Thursday, Aug. 29, and QB Carson Palmer might not play at all. Palmer said Monday, Aug. 26, that he could skip this week's game and feel "very comfortable" heading into the regular season opener Sept. 8 against the St. Louis Rams.
Fantasy Tip: Palmer should be considered a Top 20 fantasy option at his position, or a QB2 for owners. He is only worth using when your primary option has a difficult matchup, injury or bye week.
Fri, 09 Aug 2013 19:19:50 -0700
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer completed four of his six pass attempts for 77 yards and a touchdown in his team debut in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, against the Green Bay Packers. "Both (offensive line) groups looked great. The pass protection has been phenomenal," Palmer said.
Fantasy Tip: The offensive line is a huge part of whether Palmer has success in the desert, or he struggles like he did at times in Oakland. Treat him more as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point.
Sun, 14 Jul 2013 08:23:45 -0700

Arizona Cardinals DE Calais Campbell said he believes the team can win the NFC West this season because of the addition of QB Carson Palmer. "I don't want to disrespect anyone but now we have a real quarterback to go with a good defense. When we play with a lead, we're hard to beat. This is the first time in years that we have an offense that matches our defense," Campbell said.
