Arians expecting 'big jump' for Carson Palmer


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/31/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he expects quarterback Carson Palmer to continue playing at a high level in 2014.

Arians said Palmer, 34, still "has more than a couple of years left" playing at a high level.

"I have not seen a drop-off skill wise since the Cincinnati days," Arians said in an interview with CBSSports.com at the NFL owners meeting. "He still throws it as efficiently, and his deep ball is one of the best I've ever seen. He works out like a maniac. His body is in great shape. If anything, I'm expecting a big jump this year because of the second year in the offense. He's got it now. The rest of the guys around him now have got it. We're adding some things with Andre Ellington and some stuff. It's harder to take a vet and school him than to brainwash a rookie. It took a while for that learning process to take place."

Palmer passed for 4,274 yards, 24 touchdowns and 22 interceptions in his first year playing for Arians in 2013.


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.

Nine Cardinals cleared for regular season finale

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 questionable Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Palmer has an ankle injury. He was held out of practice Wednesday, but was able to return on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. 


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

Carson Palmer questionable Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is questionable Week 15 against the Titans.

Palmer is still dealing with a right elbow injury, and was limited throughout practice this week. Palmer was able to play through the injury last week, and is expected to play Week 15.


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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.

Carson Palmer to be a game-time decision


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer will be a game-time decision Week 14 against the Rams.

Palmer is dealing with an elbow injury. Head coach Bruce Arians said he's confident Palmer will stay against St. Louis, but is confident in Drew Stanton if the team has to sit Palmer. This comes at a bad time for Palmer, as he was in the middle of a hot streak. Over the past five games, he's tossed 11 touchdowns to four interceptions.
