Carson Palmer unsure of playing future

Pro Football Talk is reporting Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer's playing future "remains up in the air" past the 2017 season. “I love every facet of it,” Palmer said via ArizonaCardinals.com. “I don’t want to stop. But I’ll have to wait and make that decision after the season. … There’s always urgency, especially as you get to the second half of your career. You just never know when your last year is going to be.”

Fantasy Impact

Palmer, 37, is entering his 15th season in the NFL. However, his playing future past the 2017 campaign remains uncertain. Coming off of a 2016 season in which he accumulated a 4,233-26-14 stat line while completing 61 percent of his passes and averaging 282.2 YPG, the veteran signal caller appears to have gas left in the tank, at least for the upcoming year. From a fantasy football perspective, Palmer holds value at his QB21 ADP as he could easily put together a back-end QB1 statistical season. View him as a fine late-round selection if he maintains his current ADP.

Carson Palmer entering his final season?

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer told the media that he has "no idea" if 2017 will be his final season in the NFL.

Fantasy Impact

Palmer, 37, had seriously considered retiring this offseason. However, he ultimately elected to return along with teammate Larry Fitzgerald. Although his production regressed from 2015, Palmer still had a solid statistical year last season. In 15 games, he threw for 4,233 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions including six games of passing for at least 300 yards, plus, a 61 percent completion percentage. From a fantasy football perspective, Palmer is still a reliable signal caller, even if he's not a clear-cut QB1. He has a plethora of high-end weapons surrounding him that are playmakers that include, Fitzgerald, David Johnson, John Brown and J.J. Nelson. Palmer should be considered a borderline QB1/ QB2 for 2017 whose upside is sky high if his health and the health of his arsenal remains intact.

Carson Palmer will play in 2017

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has officially announced that he will play in 2017.

Fantasy Impact

After a vast amount of uncertainty surrounding Palmer's playing status next season, the 37-year-old signal caller has officially announced that he will play in 2017. Expect Palmer, who has two years remaining on his current deal, to play out his contract and retire following the 2018 campaign. Despite his age, he is still one of the better statistical quarterbacks in the league.

Carson Palmer likely to return for 2017

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians believes quarterback Carson Palmer will "announce he's coming back [ in 2017] real soon."

Fantasy Impact

Now that Larry Fitzgerald committed to playing in 2017, Palmer's announcement is expected to follow in the coming weeks or even days. As both players are said to be "tied at the hip," this upcoming season could be the last for both -- assuming Palmer indeed returns.

Carson Palmer likely to return for 2017

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes because Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is returning to play in 2017, it is a "good sign" for quarterback Carson Palmer's return as well. Rapoport believes both players are "tied at the hip."

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport confirmed Fitzgerald's return late Wednesday night, opening the door for Palmer's likely announcement in the coming days. Reports flurried throughout the month of January citing Palmer has sold his house and pulled his children out of school in Arizona, but the signal caller denied those allegations. If Palmer returns, the Cardinals are still likely to address the quarterback position this offseason as he is nearing the end of his playing career even if he does, in fact, decide to play another year. Palmer is under contract with the Cardinals until 2019.
