Cardinals | Carson Palmer gets another day off

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 23:09:04 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer got a veteran's day off Thursday, July 27. It was his second day off in five days of practice and comes on the heels of a team day off Wednesday, July 26. It's part of the team's ongoing plan to rest his arm whenever possible during the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Everything Bruce Arians does in July and August is geared toward getting 16 games out of Palmer during the regular season. The 37-year-old isn't among the elite fantasy QBs out there, but he has a pretty high statistical floor and should be a strong reserve / spot starter in 2017.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer to see more time in preseason

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 14:22:28 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer will receive more playing snaps this preseason than he did in 2016, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer probably will only see a few more snaps during each game but will see most of his work in the team's fourth preseason game. He will have a strong group of pass catchers to work with again this season and could be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer will not play in HOF game

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 15:06:42 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer will be held out of the Hall-of-Fame game on Thursday, August 3, against the Dallas Cowboys in Canton, Ohio.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Bruce Arians has made it clear he intends to give Palmer a regular rest throughout the season, so there is no need for him to play in this contest when he would be limited to two series at the most. Blaine Gabbert and Drew Stanton will likely split snaps through the first half before Trevor Knight closes it out.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer threw too much last offseason

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 06:45:08 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer wore his arm out from throwing too much last offseason, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Arians said they've found a good routine for Palmer.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer had a mediocre September, but he hit his stride in October. He completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 1,206 yards (his best month) with five touchdowns and two interceptions. At 37, it's hard to make a case for him as a strong QB1 in fantasy.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer unsure about future

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 16:12:21 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he is not ready to say how much longer he will play football.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer will be on the field in 2017 and will have some terrific weapons to work with in the passing game. He has thrown for at least 4,000 yards in four of the last five seasons and has 61 touchdowns over the last two seasons. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer noncommittal on future

Tue, 16 May 2017 11:52:43 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he has no idea if 2017 will be his last year in the NFL. He will evaluate himself when the season is over as he does every year.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer hasn't exactly declined with age. He has thrown for close to 9,000 yards and 61 touchdowns over the last two seasons. That being said, his QB1 days are probably over at 37 years old.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer to rest this offseason

Fri, 12 May 2017 16:01:05 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer likely will not throw until the end of offseason workouts, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Arians said the team wants to keep Palmer fresh for the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer probably will not play much during the preseason but will be ready for Week 1. He will have solid weapons to work with the passing game and probably should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in a majority of fantasy leagues.

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.
