Drew Stanton comes back down to earth


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) If Drew Stanton's performance Week 11 against Detroit, when he threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns, got Fantasy owners thinking the Cardinals wouldn't really miss Carson Palmer at quarterback, his performance Week 12 at Seattle was a dose of reality. He threw for just 149 yards and an interception.

Granted, it was against one of the league's best defenses, but still, it was closer to what you'd expect from a career backup. So in five starts between two different injuries for Palmer, Stanton has had two games in which he's offered relevant Fantasy production. In the other three, he's fallen well short -- perhaps even embarrassingly short considering his receiving corps.

When ranking all 32 starting quarterbacks for Fantasy purposes, he may not be at the very bottom, but he's not far off. Most likely, even owners in two-quarterback leagues will want to pass on him.


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer goes under the knife


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his ACL, according to the team's official website. Palmer suffered the injury Week 10 against the Rams and was waiting for the swelling on his knee to go down before having the procedure.

Palmer, who signed a three-year extension with the Cardinals worth $50 million in total just two days before sustaining another season-ending injury, is expected to have a long road back in his rehabilitation process. He is targeting a return at some point near the end of Arizona's OTAs in June.


Drew Stanton throws for career-high 306 yards, two TDs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton completed 21 of 32 throws for a career-high 306 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in the Week 11 win over the Lions. Stanton threw touchdowns to wideout Michael Floyd on Arizona's first two possessions before bogging down against the league's top-ranked defense.

On the opening drive, Stanton threw high to the corner of the end zone and let Floyd box out his defender for a 42-yard score. The second touchdown was a well-timed 12-yard out route.

Stanton has thrown five touchdowns against two interceptions in five games this season. He'll visit Seattle in Week 12.


New starter Drew Stanton has not committed a turnover


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) The Cardinals will go with quarterback Drew Stanton the rest of the season, and he says he's ready for the job. In the four games in which he's appeared, Stanton has thrown for 614 yards and three touchdowns without an interception or a lost fumble.

The only blemish is his 49.5 percent completion rate.

"It's an opportunity I've been looking forward to for a long time," he told the team's website after Carson Palmer was placed on IR with a torn ACL. "It's been eight years that I've been working toward this, so I don't take it lightly. It comes under unfortunate circumstances, without a doubt, but it's also, like I was saying [Sunday], part of my job description."

Coach Bruce Arians said Stanton has "proven to everybody he's more than capable of finishing the job this team has started."

Stanton plays the Lions' top-ranked defense in Week 11.


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer headed to IR with torn ACL


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians confirmed quarterback Carson Palmer's injury during Monday's press conference. Palmer will miss the remainder of the 2014 season with a torn ACL and will be placed on the injured reserve list, per the team's official website.

Palmer signed a three-year extension with the Cardinals worth $50 million in total, just two days before sustaining another season-ending injury. Arians told reporters that his starting quarterback did not suffer any other ligament damage, which means he is expected to be ready for the start of the 2015 season. He is expected to undergo surgery in a "couple of weeks" once the swelling on his knee goes down.


Cardinals QB Drew Stanton comes on in relief


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton came on in relief of Carson Palmer Week 10.

Palmer went down with a knee injury early in the fourth quarter, paving the way for Stanton. Though Stanton only had five attempts, he made them count. Stanton completed three passes for 85 yards and a score. He managed to hit John Brown on a 48 yard score on his third attempt. Stanton also had two rushing attempts from 3 yards.

If Palmer can't go, Stanton will likely start against Lions Week 11. 


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer average before injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer turned in an average game before leaving with a knee injury. 

Palmer completed 25 of 36 passes, but did not toss any scores. He was picked off once and fumbled, but did not turn the ball over on the fumble. Palmer wound up leaving the game early in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. He wasn't really touched on the play, and wound up going down after trying to set his feet. He was able to walk off the field and was carted to the locker room. The fear is that Palmer tore his ACL, but that isn't confirmed at this time. 

The Cardinals will take on the Lions next week, but it's unclear if Palmer will play. 


Carson Palmer agrees to three-year extension with Cardinals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Carson Palmer has agreed to a three-year extension with the Cardinals worth $50 million in total, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Palmer was set to be a free agent after the 2014 season. He was earning a base salary of $9 million, with $1 million in roster bonus before the announcement of the extension. The team has not revealed the exact nature of his guarantees, but given his history of injuries, the contract will likely include some protections on a year-to-year basis.

Palmer was acquired by the Cardinals via trade from Oakland before the start of the 2013 season. He has led Arizona to a 7-1 record and has yet to lose a game while under center this season. He's compiled 1,385 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions in five games.


Report: Carson Palmer to receive extension in 'near future'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, all signs point to Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer receiving a contract extension in the "very near future." Palmer is earning a base salary of $9 million, with $1 million in roster bonus this season.

He remains under contract with Arizona until five days after the Super Bowl. After stints with the Bengals and Raiders, he has led the Cardinals to a 7-1 record and has yet to lose a game while under center this season. He's compiled 1,385 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions in five games.

Carson Palmer comes through


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer did Fantasy Football analyst Jamey Eisenberg justice as the CBSSports.com Start of the Week for Week 9 at Dallas, throwing for three touchdowns in a game that turned out to be not so high-scoring with Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo sidelined by a back injury.

It was Palmer's first game with three touchdown passes but his fourth straight with at least two. Or really, his fifth straight. He also had two in Week 1 before missing the next three games with a shoulder injury.

Clearly, this offense favors him, and he has the weapons in wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd to keep it up. Neither of them were even responsible for any of the touchdowns in this one, which goes to show how much of it is Palmer himself.

With a favorable matchup Week 10 against St. Louis, Palmer is looking like a must-start in Fantasy.


Carson Palmer produces first three-touchdown game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer threw an early pick-six Week 9 against the Cowboys, but he more than made up for it. Palmer finished 22 of 34 for 249 yards and three touchdowns, his first three-touchdown effort this season.

Palmer is up to 11 touchdowns and two turnovers in five games played.

Palmer fired two scoring throws in the second quarter, hitting tight end John Carlson from 7 yards out and wideout Jaron Brown with an 11-yard strike. Palmer's 1-yard touchdown toss to running back Andre Ellington put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter. Palmer might have thrown for 300 yards if not for several drops by his receivers.

He'll look to stay hot Week 10 against the Rams.


Carson Palmer goes over 300 yards passing for 34th time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer completed fewer than half his throws Week 8 against the Eagles, but he connected on two long touchdown throws to put him over 300 yards for the 34th time in his career.

Palmer finished 20 of 42 for a season-high 329 yards and two scores with no interceptions. It was his second 300-yard game in four starts this year.

Early in the third quarter, Palmer hit Larry Fitzgerald on a slant and the 31-year-old wideout took it 80 yards for a touchdown. With 90 seconds left and his team trailing 20-17, Palmer lofted a perfect over-the-shoulder throw that rookie John Brown caught for the winning 75-yard score.

Palmer has thrown two touchdown passes in each of his four starts while committing just two turnovers in those games. He'll visit the Cowboys in Week 9.


Cardinals' Carson Palmer tosses two touchdowns Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer threw two touchdowns Week 7 against the Raiders.

Palmer completed 22 of 31 attempts for 253 yards and two scores. He was consistently able to find his targets down the field, posting 8.2 yards per attempt. It wasn't all perfect, as Palmer turned the ball over once on an interception, and took one sack. For the most part, though, Palmer was solid. He was able to find Andre Ellington on shorter gains, while also hitting Michael Floyd and John Brown on longer plays. 

Palmer will look for more Week 8 against the Eagles. 


Carson Palmer looks healthy enough to use


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was plenty productive Week 6 against Washington, completing 28 of 44 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns in a rather abrupt return from a shoulder nerve issue that caused him to miss three games.

That makes Palmer 2 for 2 in throwing for 250 yards and two touchdowns this season. You'll take that in Fantasy.

Coach Bruce Arians' comments Monday make Palmer even more attractive in Fantasy. He said 44 attempts will be the norm for him with the way defenses stack the box against the Cardinals. With wide receiver Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald at his disposal, Palmer certainly has the weapons to make the most of all those throws.

He won't play mistake-free football all season -- he threw 22 interceptions last year, to put it in perspective -- but if you feel like your starting quarterback is bringing you down, he's in a situation to put up consistent numbers if his shoulder continues to feel good.

You have to like his matchup Week 7 at Oakland. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both have him in their top 12 for the contest. Though the Raiders rank a modest 11th against the pass, that's just because they're so busy getting beat by the run. They've allowed the fourth-highest passer rating of any team this season.


Bruce Arians: 44 pass attempts the 'norm'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Carson Palmer's 44 pass attempts Week 6 should be considered "the norm," reports ESPN.com.

"When we have it that many times and they stack the box like that to stop the run, then we're going to throw the football," Arians said. "When he says he's OK, we're going to go with it."

Palmer had missed the three previous games with a nerve problem in his throwing shoulder, but reportedly felt great after Sunday's win over the Redskins. Palmer threw 37 times in the season opener, his only other outing this year.

The Cardinals averaged 35.9 pass attempts last year. They ranked 10th in the league by throwing 60.5 percent of the time.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said quarterback Carson Palmer was feeling good Monday after attempting 44 passes during a win Sunday against the Redskins. Palmer returned to the lineup Week 6 after missing three games due to a shoulder injury.

Cardinals' Drew Stanton says he's symptom-free


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton told reporters he's no longer dealing with any symptoms of a concussion, according to ESPN. The brain injury knocked Stanton out of Week 5 at Denver. Stanton could be medically cleared for contact as early as Friday.

"I feel good," Stanton said. "I haven't had any setbacks. Every day, kinda progressing and being able to get over hurdles. Again it was a matter of feeling good through workouts and kinda expanding it a little bit and feeling comfortable with what's going on."

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer showing 'pretty significant' improvement


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is showing significant improvement in his right throwing shoulder, according to the consultant who is working with the veteran quarterback. Greg Roskopf, the founder and CEO of Muscle Activation Techniques, told ESPN he worked with Palmer over the weekend and said there was "pretty significant" improvement to the nerve injured he injured in the season opener.

Even though Palmer threw Wednesday, his status for Week 6 against the Redskins remains up in the air. He will meet with Roskopf Friday to undergo another evaluation. Roskopf said he used a palpation technique to stimulate the sensory receptors in Palmer's shoulder.

"It's woken up," Roskopf said. "It has to wake up and stay awake. It's a very delicate line. If he exceeds his tolerance level at the time, then it almost puts it back to sleep. It shuts it down again.

"If he doesn't have any setbacks through the week, I think he's on his way. I never know how well somebody's doing until they throw themselves into the fire. He left doing so much better."


Bruce Arians: Carson Palmer threw Tuesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer did some throwing Tuesday, and Wednesday will be a critical day as the staff evaluates his progress, coach Bruce Arians told SiriusXM NFL Radio. Palmer has missed three straight games with a bruised nerve in his shoulder.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Palmer has missed the last three games, while Stanton was injured Sunday against the Broncos.


Cardinals' Logan Thomas completes one pass Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Cardinals quarterback Logan Thomas was forced into action Week 5.

Thomas replaced starter Drew Stanton after Stanton left the game in order to be evaluated for a concussion. Thomas entered in the third quarter, and struggled initially. After starting things off with four straight incompletions, Thomas hit Andre Ellington down the field for a big play. Thomas fit the ball in a tight window, and Ellington took the ball 81 yards for the score. It was Thomas' only completion during the game. He finished 1 for 8, with 81 yards and a score. 

Thomas will take on Washington Week 6 if Stanton is unable to go.

Stanton completed 11 of 26 passes for 118 yards. He did not throw a touchdown or turn the ball over during the contest. Stanton was mostly held to short dump-off passes. He averaged just 4.5 yards per completion. Stanton left the contest early in the third quarter after taking a big hit. He was evaluated for a concussion, and never returned to the contest.
