The Cowboys' passing defense is not nearly as strong as it was last year with its brand new secondary, as evidenced by how easily Trevor Siemian carved them up last week. But Palmer has done himself no favors in the fantasy community through the first two weeks, struggling mightily against both the Lions and the Colts. The loss of David Johnson clearly took its toll on the offense, and John Brown's absence, which should extend to this week, doesn't help either. But the matchup gives Palmer a chance to get right here, particularly in the Cardinals' home opener in a nationally-televised game. He's far from trustworthy and is nothing more than a mid-range QB2, but has the potential to get back in his fantasy owners' good graces in a plus matchup.

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.
