Legion Report
Arizona has plenty of options in 2014 – Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and Andre Ellington. Throughout the final nine games of the season, the Cardinals jumped their PPG mark 7.3 Points up to an average of 27.3 PPG. The offense has continued to mesh as they become more fluent with Bruce Arians; Carson Palmer was recently quoted in saying that the offense is “light years” ahead of where they were last year. The Cards play in a difficult division who is not friendly to opposing QBs, however we think Palmer takes a step forward in 2014.
 
  
Matthew Hill
Fantasy Team Advice
In the final seven games Carson Palmer eclipsed 300 yards four times, including a 407 and a 419 yard effort. With a full season under his belt and with the continued development of young skill players, Palmer has some serious sleeper appeal this season.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Palmer can still get it done in a pinch for fantasy owners, but you don't want to hitch your wagon to him. What we saw last year is probably as good as it gets from this point on.
Some think Eli Manning is headed on a downward spiral. Some say he's already there. Based off of what we saw in 2013, both assumptions need to be considered.
  
Huseyin Aksu
Fantasy Couch
look for a good year with Ellington and other WRs not-named Fitzgerald emerging
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Palmer's numbers don't lie and he is a solid back-up QB for 2014 that can be had in the later rounds.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Fuel is running low, but he has talented WRs and a pass-happy coach.
Eli as a West Coast QB? Mildly intriguing if price is right.
  
KJ
Fantasy Team Advice
Palmer is too interception prone, without enough passing TD upside to be considered a draft day option in 2014
Few QB's disappointed in 2013 like Eli Manning, but much of that could be blamed on his O-line, and OC. This year, the Giants will feature a new OC, an upgraded O-line, and new WR threat in Odell Beckham, meaning that Eli is prime for a bounceback. He is a QB that can be grabbed in the final rounds on draft day as a backup, so don't reach too early, as the 2 time super bowl winner has to prove himself once again in 2014
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Career highs in passing yards under OC Arians, but ugly 24:22 TD to INT ratio.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Palmer had his moments this year, but it will be interesting to see if the Cardinals go in another direction in 2015 or if they jump start that change and go with rookie Logan Thomas at some point this season. Palmer can make plays, but he is just not the long-term answer for them at quarterback.
The New York Giants have a new offensive coordinator, but Eli Manning was so terrible last year that I do not think I would want to own him in 2014. He's been bad for 1.5 years and is in danger of losing his job if things do not change in 2014. The addition of Odell Beckham Jr. was nice, but the Giants still have to figure out how to block for Manning. Manning has looked lost in the preseason playing under a foreign West Coast offense.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
Failure to address the offensive line and his own propensity for turnovers leave Manning undesirable at QB this year.
