Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) will be the backup to QB Drew Stanton in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers if he can play Sunday, Sept. 21. If Palmer can't play, QB Logan Thomas will serve as the backup to Stanton. Palmer has made progress this week, but not enough to start. Head coach Bruce Arians said Palmer still can't throw.
Fantasy Tip: You obviously shouldn't have Palmer in any of your lineups this weekend. Stray away from Drew Stanton, too, against a tough Niners defense.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington should be able to play in Week 3 and probably will receive most of the work at the position. Ellington costs $6,300 on FantasyScore this week, but may not turn much of a profit because he will be facing the San Francisco 49ers and could be affected by the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is not starting the game because of his injury. Owners should avoid using Palmer until he has recovered from the shoulder injury.

Fantasy Tip: Palmer is not starting the team's Week 3 game, and there is still not a definite timetable for his return. Owners should avoid using Palmer until he is able to play again.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton will get his second straight start because of Carson Palmer's (shoulder) injury. Stanton costs $4,200 on FantasyScore this week, but owners likely could find a better option to use at quarterback.

Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer, who was charged in a domestic violence case involving his wife and young son, may not return to the team unless he's exonerated from his charges, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Dwyer was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list, which means he can't return for the rest of the season. The Cardinals will continue to pay his $730,000 salary.
Fantasy Tip: If you own Dwyer in a deep league, it's safe to drop him at this point, since it'll likely be a while before his legal course plays out.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington was able to play with the injury last week and should have a good chance to play again in Week 3. Owners would have to spend $6,300 on Ellington at FantasyScore this week but could also look to add a healthier option at the position.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Palmer may have a chance to play in Week 3 but more will be known about his availability in the upcoming days. Owners may want to use a better option at quarterback this week if Palmer he able to start the game.
