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.

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

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.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Drew Stanton leads second-half comeback Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton threw two second-half touchdown passes to rookie receiver John Brown, leading Arizona to a 23-14 comeback win Week 3 vs. San Francisco. Stanton completed 18 of 33 passes for 244 yards, while rushing for 16 yards on six carries.

Stanton didn't have a very productive first half, completing just 8 of 17 passes for 83 yards as Arizona trailed 14-6 by the break. Stanton then threw touchdown passes of 21 and 24 yards to Brown in the third quarter, and the Cardinals never looked back.

Stanton came close to throwing a third touchdown to Brown in the second half, but he overthrew Brown, who had run past his defender down the left sideline. It would have resulted in a 45-yard touchdown had Stanton hit Brown in stride. 

The Cardinals head into a bye Week 4 before returning to play Week 5 at Denver. If Carson Palmer (shoulder) is healthy, he is expected to resume the starting quarterback job.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

If healthy, Palmer will start Week 3 against the 49ers, even if he is unable to practice all week. Drew Stanton will make his second straight start if Palmer can't play. There is no timetable for Palmer's return.

"We're doing every kind of research we possibly can," coach Bruce Arians said about Palmer's injury. "He's getting every kind of treatment known to man. He's got more needles sticking in him half the day than most of us in our lifetime."


Drew Stanton leads Cards to win in place of injured QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton threw no touchdowns Sunday against the Giants. However, he was able to play turnover-free football and that was good enough to lead Arizona to a 25-14 win Week 2, despite starting quarterback Carson Palmer sidelined due to a shoulder injury.

Stanton completed less than half of his passes (14 for 29), finishing with 167 passing yards. He was sacked four times and rushed for minus-2 yards. Stanton was credited with an 8-yard passing touchdown to Larry Fitzgerald on the opening drive of the game, but it was called back as Fitzgerald was ruled down at the 1-yard line after an official review.

Stanton, who was making his first start since 2010, improved to 3-2 in five career starts. The Cardinals are back in action Week 3 against the 49ers and Stanton could make a second consecutive start, as coach Bruce Arians indicated after Sunday's game that Palmer could be out until after the team's Week 4 bye.
