Carson Palmer to miss eight weeks with broken arm

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer broke his left arm against the Rams in London and will have surgery. It will rule him out for approximately eight weeks.

Fantasy Impact

The 2017 season just goes from bad to worse for the Cardinals. Drew Stanton is next in line to start after the Cardinals' bye week, but he is unlikely to do anything positive for the few remaining relevant Cardinals skill players.

Carson Palmer heads to locker room with left arm injury

Carson Palmer left Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams with an injury and is headed to the locker room for further valuation. Drew Stanton is now in at quarterback for the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Palmer was 10-for-18 with 122 yards passing and an interception prior to leaving the game after a hit from Alex Ogletree. The official announcement, for now, is that he has a left arm injury, and his return is questionable.

Carson Palmer throws for 3 TDs in efficient Week 6 win

Carson Palmer completed 18 of his 22 pass attempts for 283 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception. He added five rushes for -4 yards (-3 on three kneel downs) in the Cardinals' Week 6 win over the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

This was an outlier game for Palmer, but the fantasy production was what owners hoped. Palmer only threw 22 times, by far his season low. However, he found the end zone three times, which is an increase in his production so far this season. Palmer's longest completion was 31 yards, which is low for an offense that likes to take deep shots. The ground game likely contributed, as Adrian Peterson ran all over the Bucs defense. Palmer did not have to throw as much, or as deep, to keep the offense moving. If the ground game continues to roll, we may see fewer pass attempts, shorter throws with increased efficiency, and more scoring opportunities. This might not impact Palmer's fantasy production significantly, but his points may come in different ways if he throws less but increases TD production. Continue to view Palmer as a solid starter in plus matchups, and a viable streamer most weeks.

Carson Palmer has 291 yards but Cardinals thumped by Eagles

Carson Palmer finished with 291 yards and a touchdown on Sunday, but the Cardinals were thrashed 34-7 by the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Palmer had to pass 44 times for his 28 completions. It was his first sub 300 effort since Week 1, and also the 4th time in five games this season he has only thrown one touchdown.

Carson Palmer has 357 passing yards in Cardinals victory

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer finished Sunday’s win over the 49ers with 357 yards passing and the game winning touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald.

Fantasy Impact

Palmer threw for more than 300 yards for the third game in a row, adding one yard on the ground from two attempts. He was sacked six times, making it 12 in his last two outings. With an Eagles ferocious pass rush and suspect secondary next up, he could be in for a similar day in Week 5.
