Carson Palmer good enough in Cardinals win

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer finished Sunday's win over the Colts with 332 yards and a touchdown. He also threw an interception and gained six yards rushing on three carries.

Fantasy Impact

Palmer once again looked shaky at the beginning of this game, but as the Colts began to wither he started to look a bit more like his old self. His touchdown pass was a bomb to J.J. Nelson, after an earlier score was wiped off after review. He'll take on the Cowboys at home next Monday night.

Carson Palmer atrocious in Cardinals loss

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer completed 27 of his 48 pass attempts for 269 yards and a touchdown against the Lions, but also tossed three devastating interceptions.

Fantasy Impact

Palmer came into the game as a popular streaming candidate, but was absolutely awful. The Cardinals offense looked terrible in general, and much of the blame has to go to Palmer. He'll get a chance to bounce back next week against a Colts team that allowed the Rams to dominate them.

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 “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.
