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.

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.

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.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer decision coming soon?

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 19:46:40 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is reportedly "tied to the hip" with WR Larry Fitzgerald in terms of their playing futures. Fitzgerald announced Wednesday, Feb. 1, he will return for another season, suggesting it is a "good sign" Palmer will do the same.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer has been noncommittal about his playing future to this point. He has indicated his intention is to play, but that it will depend on how his body recuperates from "the most physically trying season of his career." It seems more probable than not Palmer plays at least one more year, but Arizona needs to ramp up its efforts to find his successor. Palmer turned 37 in December and should be treated as midrange QB2 in 2017 should he decide to keep playing.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer addresses rumor

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 09:14:52 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer sent a text message to The Arizona Republic writer Kent Somers to dispel rumors, stating Palmer's Arizona home is not on the market.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer has yet to confirm his intentions for 2017, but most signs point to the veteran returning. He would be a QB2 in fantasy drafts.

Cardinals | Bruce Arians expects stars back in '17

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 18:52:39 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians expects both QB Carson Palmer and WR Larry Fitzgerald to return in 2017. He feels "comfortable with where they're at" and added, "I think when the juices start flowing and the injuries go away, they'll both be back. But there's nothing to confirm yet."

Fantasy Tip: At this point early into Arizona's offseason, it's still unknown if both stars plan on continuing their respective careers. Fitzgerald is 33 years old and coming off his eighth 1,000-yard season, so there is certainly no doubt that he can still play at an elite level, which could point to him returning. Palmer, 37, isn't as much a sure bet to come back, especially after somewhat of a down campaign, but Arians hinted that one's decision could affect the other, so the early indication is both will keep playing in '17.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer mum about retirement plans

Sun, 29 Jan 2017 12:40:09 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has yet to confirm whether he intends to return for another season or retire. At least one prominent general manager and two coaches around the league believe Palmer has played his last down.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is coming off a physically punishing and overall trying season during which he looked almost nothing like he did in 2015, when he was in the running for league MVP. The 37-year-old picked it up late in the season, but with Larry Fitzgerald also contemplating his future and Arizona possibly in the midst of an offensive makeover, Palmer may decide to call it a career.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer had issues on the road

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 13:32:56 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer threw for 1,821 yards, 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on the road this season. He threw for 2,412 yards, 13 touchdowns and only three interceptions at home.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer has not announced if he will play in 2017, but he probably will be back with the Cardinals. He has posted solid numbers of the last few seasons and will have a number of weapons to work with in the passing game. Owners should consider Palmer a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues and a No. 2 quarterback in standard leagues.

Cardinals | Coach expects Carson Palmer to return

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 09:19:55 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said QB Carson Palmer has not told him if he will continue his playing career but he believes Palmer will play in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer saw his numbers drop this past season and finished the season with 4,233 yards, 26 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 15 games. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because Palmer can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues if he returns.

Cardinals | Arizona in the QB market?

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 16:32:16 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is under contract through 2018, but head coach Bruce Arians said in his postseason news conference that the team needs to find a successor for Palmer.

Fantasy Tip: Even if the Cardinals spend an early pick on a quarterback, Palmer should still be running the show in 2017, and he can be trusted as a quality QB2.

Cardinals | Protection key for Carson Palmer

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 16:23:46 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer threw 16 touchdowns and four interceptions in the eight games when he was sacked fewer than three times, and he threw 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in the eight games when he was sacked three times or more.

Fantasy Tip: When Palmer is kept upright, he can still sling it with the best of them, but consistency will likely remain an issue. He can be a QB1 when the matchups are right, but he should be drafted as a fantasy backup.

With the way he's been trending down, he's not a recommended option for most leagues, especially at this critical juncture in the campaign with fantasy playoff spots on the line.

Cardinals | Coach has Carson Palmer's back

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 22:02:51 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer has seen his passer rating plummet from a career-high 104.6 to 83.6 this season, but head coach Bruce Arians said the veteran QB is not the team's problem. "But Carson, he put a lot of trust in some guys that haven't come through for him," Arians said.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain who Arians was pointing the finger, but the finger of blame was not directed at Palmer. Even so, Palmer has taken a big step back this season and is more of a low-end QB1 or must-have QB2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer was 20-of-38 for 198 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-24 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He was also intercepted twice.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer missed nearly half his passes, which isn't what Arizona fans want to see from their prime signal-caller. Still, Minnesota's 212 passing yards surrendered per game is sixth in the NFL, so this might be just a bad week.

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 14:44:55 -0800

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (non-injury) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: It was probably a day of rest for the veteran quarterback. He won't be resting this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings, though.

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (rest) practiced in full for the second day in a row Friday, Nov. 11. He is expected to face the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer working on deep throws

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 10:06:03 -0700

Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer is completing only 40.7 percent of throws that travel at least 15 yards through the year, down more than 10 percent from last season. He has only thrown for one touchdown on such throws this season, as opposed to 13 in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: While John Brown's injuries and Michael Floyd's inconsistency have certainly contributed to the decline, Palmer hasn't come close to resembling the top-five fantasy quarterback he was in 2015. With that said, the three-time Pro Bowler makes for an adequate plug-and-play option this week against a Carolina Panthers secondary that has given up its fair share of vertical passes.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer still limited

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 15:45:08 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Palmer should be good to go despite his limited participation. He has a favorable tilt with the Carolina Panthers this week. The Panthers have been one of the worst fantasy pass defenses this year sans Josh Norman. The veteran thrower is a low-end QB1 play.

Palmer can still be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.
