It's pretty obvious that Palmer's 2015 season was an outlier in what's been a mediocre career. Despite throwing 60 more passes in 2016, he finished with 438 fewer yards and nine fewer touchdowns. It didn't help that John Brown was injured for a majority of the season and that Michael Floyd turned bad. They added Chad Williams in the NFL Draft, but he's an extremely raw receiver. You should expect a slight increase on his 2016 totals, but don't expect him to return to 2015 form.

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.
