After a superb 2015 season, Palmer got off to a lousy start last year. Most are saying he has hit the wall, but if you look at his final six games and consider that he accomplished all of it without John Brown or a healthy offensive line, it tells a far different story. Palmer is being overlooked this year, but should be reliable enough to warrant owning.

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.
