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.
Flacco has adopted the Eli Manning label … confusing many beginner fantasy players with the idea that because he has won a Super Bowl, he’s going to be successful in my fantasy lineup. Wrong!
  
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.
Flacco has the arm to do magical things, but does he have the system or weapons? Last year showed us he's probably not meant to throw the ball 40+ times a game.
  
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.
Just an average Joe. A very ordinary QB2.
  
KJ
Fantasy Team Advice
Palmer is too interception prone, without enough passing TD upside to be considered a draft day option in 2014
Average QB is as nice a description as we can give here.. Shouldn't be high on anyone's radar
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Career highs in passing yards under OC Arians, but ugly 24:22 TD to INT ratio.
How much will an aging Steve Smith really help?
  
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.
Flacco was a disappointment in fantasy, but the Ravens improved their offensive line and added WR Steve Smith in free agency. I don't see Smith having a mega impact at his age and Flacco has no value in the running game with too many consistency issues throwing the ball.
