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 Drew Stanton held in check vs. Seahawks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton completed just 14 of his 26 pass attempts for 149 yards with no touchdowns and one interception while adding 23 rushing yards on four carries in his team's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks in Week 12.

Stanton had virtually no chance against a stout Seahawks secondary in Seattle while missing Larry Fitzgerald (knee). He was able to lead his second drive into Seahawks territory mainly on a pass-interference call but watched the Arizona kicker miss a 49-yard field goal. He didn't get the ball into Seattle territory again until his last drive of the first half, but the Cardinals had to settle for a short field goal with seconds left before halftime. The Cardinals were unable to penetrate further than the Seattle 40-yard line in the second half.

Stanton appeared to potentially suffer an ankle injury while failing on a third-down conversion in his final offensive drive but said after the game that it was nothing serious and that he would have come back into the game had the offense gotten the ball back. He may receive a little extra rest this week but should be good to go for his Week 13 matchup with the Falcons.


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 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 active, set to start vs. Redskins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder) is active and slated to start Sunday against the Redskins.

Palmer will be seeing his first action since Week 1, when he threw for 304 yards and two touchdowns while completing 64.9 percent of his passes in a win over the Chargers. Drew Stanton (concussion) is also active and will return to a backup role. Third quarterback Logan Thomas is active as well.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton has been cleared to play Sunday, according to Fox Sports 910.

Cardinals Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton questionable Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Cardinals quarterbacks Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton are questionable heading into Week 6.

Palmer is still trying to get over a nerve issue in his shoulder. He was able to get through limited practice this week, and seems to be getting closer to a return. Stanton is trying to overcome a concussion. He was also limited in practice throughout the week. 


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."


Carson Palmer throws Thursday, Drew Stanton sits out practice


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton (concussion) was not practicing Thursday during the portion of practice open to the media. Quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder) was throwing during practice Thursday.

Cards QB Carson Palmer throws; shoulder questions remain


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Cardinals QB Carson Palmer practiced Wednesday, with the club hopeful he can return from an nerve injury in his right (throwing) shoulder, which has kept him out the past three games.

He threw at Wednesday's workout, but there are questions about whether he can go Sunday vs. Washington.

AzCardinals.com reported the club hopes he can practice fully Thursday or Friday. At the same time, Palmer said he will likely fly back to Denver on Friday afternoon to revisit the MAT (Muscle Activation Technique) work he was put through when he went there last weekend.

That would not preclude Palmer from playing, the team site reported. But it speaks to the uncertainty he and the team is going through with his injury.

“I just have to be able to throw a ball,” Palmer said. “Let loose and throw it hard. That’s basically it.”

Logan Thomas, who relieved injured backup Drew Stanton last Sunday at Denver, took the first team snaps Wednesday. Stanton also practiced Wednesday.


Cardinals QBs Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton expected to practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Cardinals quarterbacks Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton are expected to be limited participants in Wednesday's practice, according to the team's official website.

Palmer is expected to do some throwing and could be healthy enough to return Week 6 against the Redskins. Stanton has not been medically cleared from a concussion, but can still do some throwing on Wednesday, according to the site.

If both quarterbacks can't play Sunday, the team will likely turn to Logan Thomas for the start against Washington.


Cards coach feels Carson Palmer or Drew Stanton might play Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday he feels either quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder) or quarterback Drew Stanton (concussion) will be available Week 6 vs. Washington. Arians won't know until Wednesday, but if both players are out, then Logan Thomas will start Sunday.

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


Logan Thomas no upgrade from Drew Stanton


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) If you weren't happy with Drew Stanton in Fantasy -- and you'd have to be pretty desperate at quarterback to have even given him a shot -- you probably won't like what rookie Logan Thomas has to offer.

His line Week 5 at Denver after entering the game for a concussed Stanton early in the third quarter pretty much tells the story. He completed an ill-advised throw to Andre Ellington that the explosive running back turned into an 81 yard touchdown, but otherwise, he was 0 for 7.

Thomas did have a strong showing in his preseason debut that earned him some admirers, but he's not the type of rookie who's expected to thrive at the NFL level right away. The Cardinals simply have nowhere else to turn with Carson Palmer and now Stanton injured.

Which may hasten the return of one of those quarterbacks. Having suffered a concussion, Stanton has to follow protocol, but Palmer has already missed four weeks, including a bye, with his bad shoulder. He doesn't seem like he's particularly close to returning, but he doesn't have a clear timetable either.

If those two continue to sit, though, Thomas should be your very last resort in Fantasy. 


Cardinals' Drew Stanton struggles before leaving Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton had a rough start before leaving Week 5 due to concussion-like symptoms. 

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. 

Stanton will take on Washington Week 6. 


Cardinals' Drew Stanton being evaluated for concussion


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton is being evaluated for a concussion Week 5.

Stanton left the game and is back in the locker room being looked at by team doctors. Backup Logan Thomas came in on the team's next offensive series. Stanton had completed 11 of 26 passes for 118 yards before leaving. 


Cardinals' Drew Stanton to start again Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton should get the call Week 5 against the Broncos.

Stanton is taking the place of Carson Palmer, who was ruled out due to a shoulder injury. Stanton has started the past two games in Palmer's place. He's tossed two touchdowns during those starts.


Carson Palmer's shoulder issues not solved


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said the bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder hasn't progressed as much as he had hoped, but still thinks he can show coaches he's capable of starting Week 5 at Denver, reports ESPN's Ed Werder. Drew Stanton has started the past two games and could face the Broncos if Palmer can't practice fully this week.

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.


Drew Stanton starts again in place of Carson Palmer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was inactive for a second straight game Week 3 vs. San Francisco because of a shoulder injury. Drew Stanton once again started in Palmer's absence.

Palmer was listed as questionable after being a limited participant in practice all week.


Cardinals planning to start Drew Stanton vs. 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said quarterback Carson Palmer's status hasn't changed and that backup Drew Stanton is in line to start Sunday against the 49ers, reports the Bay Area News Group. Palmer has a bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder.

Stanton completed 14 of 29 throws for 167 yards in the Week 2 win at the Giants.


Carson Palmer not any better Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, who missed the Week 2 win at the Giants with a bruised nerve in his throwing shoulder, showed no improvement Monday, according to the team's website.

"Hopefully any minute it starts working," Palmer said. "We'll see."

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.
