Carson Palmer has near-flawless opening drive in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer enjoyed an impressive performance during Saturday's preseason opener against the Texans.

Palmer worked the opening drive with the first-team offense and fired a 7-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald. He was pulled for Drew Stanton in the ensuing drive. Palmer completed all five of his pass attempts for 84 yards, averaging 16.8 yards per attempt. He was sacked once and finished with a 158.3 passer rating.

Carson Palmer far more comfortable in Year 2


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is enjoying his second year in Bruce Arians' offense, reports ESPN.com. Last season he said he was "just swimming. Inside your head, you’re thinking about 80 different things."

Now, Palmer said he's only focused on "my first progression, my second progression, my third progression."

Tuesday's OTA "was actually enjoyable," Palmer added. "It wasn’t frustrating and all the motions you go through when you’re learning a new offense. I’ve had an entire offseason to study this offense and study our guys in this offense, and it was fun."


Carson Palmer: I feel like I'm 26


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) As the Cardinals finished last season on a 7-2 run, quarterback Carson Palmer ranked in the top 10 in completions, completion percentage, passing yards, yards per attempt, touchdown passes and passer rating. “My body feels great, like I did when I was 26,” Palmer told the Arizona Republic. “I was built to take hits, stay in the pocket and make throws. That’s always been one of my strengths.”

Palmer, 34, said he watched tape of the 2013 season and "it was like watching two different seasons, two different teams. It was amazing how much better we got across the board, from technique to execution, from the offensive line to the running backs to the routes run by wide receivers. What happens if we pick up where we left off?”


Arians remains confident in Carson Palmer


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians remains high on quarterback Carson Palmer and doesn't expect him to slow down in 2014 even though he'll be 34, reports the San Francisco Chronicle

"There is no doubt he has plenty of juice left in the tank," Arians said. "He's in great condition. I would think he could play until 36, 37 easily."


Carson Palmer threw deep ball better as year progressed


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was much more accurate on long throws later in the season, reports the Arizona Republic, which expects the 34-year-old to be the 2014 starter. Palmer was the only Arizona quarterback to take a snap this season.

He threw eight touchdowns against 13 interceptions over the first seven games. Over the final nine games, however, Palmer threw 16 touchdown passes with eight picks. The paper noted Palmer played through elbow and ankle injuries and should be better in the second year in Bruce Arians' system.


Carson Palmer throws for 400-plus yards in season finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer bounced back from his recent struggles with a 400-yard passing performance during Sunday's season finale against the 49ers in Week 17.

Palmer was picked off by NaVorro Bowman in the opening quarter but got back on track with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Jake Ballard on a 4th-and-goal play in the second quarter. He then hooked up with Andre Roberts for a 34-yard touchdown strike with 3:28 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Palmer completed 28 of 49 passes for 407 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception in a 23-20 defeat. He has passed for at least 300 yards five times. He finished the season with a career-high 4,274 passing yards, with 24 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.

Carson Palmer way too risky to trust Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer will try to get back on track in a must-win home game against the 49ers in Week 17.

Palmer is seeking his first postseason birth since 2009 when he was a member of the Bengals. He was held to 178 passing yards, with one touchdown and four interceptions in a Week 16 win at Seattle. In his previous meeting, Palmer completed 25 of 41 passes for 298 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

The 49ers have allowed only 209.1 passing yards per game, which is the fourth fewest allowed in the league this season. Opposing quarterbacks have scored 14.80 Fantasy points per game this season. Palmer is also battling injuries to the ankle and right elbow, which makes him an even riskier play. Consider him a low-end option for the final game of the regular season.

Carson Palmer overcomes four picks with game-winning TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer overcame a roller-coaster performance as he bounced back with a game-winning touchdown to clinch a 17-10 win over the Seahawks in Week 16.

Palmer hooked up with Brittan Golden for a 67-yard gain but was intercepted by Kam Chancellor in the back of the end zone during the opening drive of the game. He was then picked off by Richard Sherman in the first quarter and again by Malcolm Smith in the second quarter. Palmer was picked off by Sherman again in the end zone in the fourth quarter.

Palmer led his team on a 10-play, 80-yard drive for the game-winning score. He hooked up with a leaping Michael Floyd, who made an acrobatic 31-yard catch in the end zone for a touchdown with 2:13 remaining in the game.

Palmer completed 13 of 25 passes for 178 yards, with one touchdown and four interceptions. He was sacked two times and finished the game with a 48.8 passer rating. He'll try to get back on track against the 49ers in Week 17.

Carson Palmer dealing with ankle injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) There was good news and bad news on the Carson Palmer injury front Wednesday. The Cardinals quarterback reported his elbow is feeling "much better," but now he's dealing with an ankle injury, according to the team's website. Palmer was limited in practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game at Seattle.


Banged up Carson Palmer has rough Week 16 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/17/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer entered Week 15 with an elbow injury. By the time it was over, he had also suffering a low ankle sprain (which coach Bruce Arians said is not serious). Now, for Week 16, Palmer has to face off against the Seattle Seahawks, who have allowed just 10 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, the lowest average in the league. 

The Seahawks haven't allowed a quarterback to score 20 points since Week 5. Last week, Eli Manning scored -3 points against Seattle. Five other quarterbacks have failed to hit double digits against the Seahawks this season, including Drew Brees (nine in Week 13). In Week 7, Palmer threw for 258 yards and a touchdown against Seattle. 

The case for Palmer is tough -- his owners essentially have to hope that he throws three touchdowns despite the varied injuries. But it's going to be tough. Palmer had a really nice run from Weeks 11 to 13, but a string of unfavorable matchups and injuries have essentially pushed him out of the top 20 among quarterbacks. 

Palmer can be benched in most formats. 


Carson Palmer diagnosed with low ankle sprain


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer played through an ankle injury during Sunday's overtime win at Tennessee, but it appears he avoided a serious ailment. Coach Bruce Arians revealed Monday Palmer suffered just a low ankle sprain.

Carson Palmer quietly efficient in Week 15 win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer stayed away from mistakes in the Week 15 overtime win at Tennessee. He completed 20 of 30 throws for 231 yards and a touchdown, with no turnovers.

Palmer threw a 6-yard score to tight end Jake Ballard in the third quarter, giving him nine touchdowns against three turnovers in his last five games. He moved into 27th place on the NFL's all-time list for career passing yards.

Palmer has a brutal matchup Week 16 at Seattle. The Seahawks intercepted Palmer twice in Week 7, holding him to 5.7 yards per attempt, his second lowest average this season.


Carson Palmer ready to go


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who was questionable with an injury to his throwing elbow, is active for the game at Tennessee. Palmer put in limited practices last week and has not missed a game this season despite the injury.

Carson Palmer a risky start in Week 15


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/13/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is expected to start in Week 15 at Tennessee despite dealing with an elbow injury, but it's a tough matchup for him against the Titans.

The Titans were abused by Peyton Manning last week, which isn't much of a surprise since he can dismantle any secondary. But give credit where it's due, and the Titans have shut down most other passing attacks with Matt Schaub in Week 2 the only quarterback along with Manning to score 20 or more Fantasy points, including matchups with Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers, Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick and Andrew Luck twice.

Palmer did a nice job playing through his elbow injury last week against St. Louis, but he snapped a string of three games in a row with 24 or more Fantasy points and five games in a row with multiple touchdowns. With a tough matchup and a bad throwing elbow, we'd be cautious with him this week and consider other options. 


Elbow injury limits Carson Palmer


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was limited in Wednesday's practice by an injury to his throwing elbow, reports the team's website. Palmer played through the injury Week 14 and hit 27 of 32 throws for 269 yards and a touchdown against the Rams.

Arizona visits Tennessee on Sunday.


Carson Palmer could miss practice time again this week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2013) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday he wasn't sure how much quarterback Carson Palmer will practice leading up to Week 15 at Tennessee after being questionable this past week because of an elbow injury. Arians, however, said he wants Palmer to get more work this week than last week.

Despite the injury, Palmer completed 27 of 32 passes for 269 yards and one touchdown during a 30-10 win Week 14.


Carson Palmer effective Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer continued his hot streak Week 14 against the Rams.

Palmer only tossed one touchdown, but overall had a strong game. He completed 27 of his 32 attempts for 269 yards. Palmer did not throw an interception. Palmer actually almost had a second score, but it was overturned by the refs. Palmer hit Jim Dray on what looked to be a touchdown, but it was ruled Dray never broke the plane. Dray fumbled on the play, and it was ruled to be the Rams ball. 

Palmer will look to continue his hot streak Week 15 against the Titans. 


Carson Palmer goes through walkthrough, expected to play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Carson Palmer looking at below-average matchup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is looking at a below-average matchup Week 14 against the Rams.

St. Louis has been solid against opposing quarterbacks, allowing them to score 17.00 Fantasy points per game. Through 12 games, the team has allowed 18 passing touchdowns. That puts them about middle of the pack. In the first matchup between the two teams, Palmer had a solid day, throwing for 327 yards and two touchdowns. 

Palmer has performed much better in Arizona's offense lately. Over his last five games, Palmer has thrown 11 touchdowns to four interceptions. He's thrown for over 300 yards in his last three games. Palmer is dealing with an elbow injury during practice this week, and it's unclear if it will be a factor Sunday. Even if he's fully healed, he's just an average start Week 14.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who's passed for 300-plus yards in three straight games, was limited in Wednesday's practice by an injury to his throwing elbow. He's preparing to face the Rams on Sunday.

Carson Palmer has third straight 300-yard game


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer finished Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Eagles with 302 passing yards and three touchdowns on 24-of-41 passing. He was intercepted twice and lost a fumble. 

This was the third consecutive game with 300 or more passing yards for Palmer. He also has thrown at least two touchdown passes in five straight games. Palmer had just 119 passing yards in the first half, but with the team down 17-7 at the half, the Cardinals began throwing more, giving Palmer the extra boost. 

The Cardinals face the Rams in Week 14. Palmer passed for 327 yards and two touchdowns when the teams first faced each other in Week 1.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer continued his strong play Week 12 against the Colts.

Palmer completed 26 of 37 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns. Palmer has been the catalyst behind Arizona's strong offensive play recently. Over the past four weeks, he's thrown eight touchdowns to just two interceptions. He's been interception-free over his past two games. Palmer was able to utilize both Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald in the win. Though Fitzgerald led the way with two touchdown receptions, Floyd led the team in yardage. 

Palmer will look to continue his strong play Week 13 against the Eagles. 


Carson Palmer practices in full despite hand injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer appeared on the injury report Wednesday with a right hand issue, but he practiced in full as the team prepares for Week 12 vs. Indianapolis. Palmer is coming off one of his best games of the season, throwing for 419 yards and two touchdowns Week 11 at Jacksonville.

Carson Palmer throws for 419 yards in Week 11 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer had the sixth 400-yard passing game of his career -- first since throwing for 414 yards Week 9 last season -- during a 27-14 win Week 11 at Jacksonville. Palmer's performance was highlighted by a 91-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Michael Floyd, which bested his previous career-high 78-yard touchdown pass to Terrell Owens in 2010.

Palmer got off to a fast start Sunday. He went 6 of 7 for 82 yards on the opening drive, which was capped by a 14-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald. Palmer threw to nine different players in the first quarter, with none of them having more than one catch.

By halftime, Palmer completed 16 of 25 passes for 209 yards and one touchdown. He had a 103.6 quarterback rating in the first half. Palmer got to pad his stats after halftime, when Floyd broke five tackles for the 91-yard touchdown.

Palmer also did something Sunday he hadn't done all season -- not throw an interception. In fact, he did throw an interception in the second half, but it was called off because the Cardinals called a timeout right before the snap.

Palmer finished 30 of 42 for 419 yards. The Cardinals are back in action Week 12 vs. Indianapolis.
