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.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer could be back for OTAs

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.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer ahead of schedule

Sun, 18 Jan 2015 07:07:29 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (knee) said he feels great and that he is ahead of schedule in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Palmer started jogging last week and is lifting heavy weights with his legs. Palmer is confident that he will be with the team next season.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer should be ready for the start of the 2015 season and was playing well before he suffered the injury. Palmer may not be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season but he could be a strong backup for owners.
