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

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) will wear a knee brace this season as he continues to recover from surgery on a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

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 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.
