Summary

Statistically, Carson Palmer had the best season of his twelve-year career in 2015, throwing for more yards, more yards per attempt, and more touchdowns than in any previous season. Palmer dislocated a finger toward the end of the regular season and his interception rate surged thereafter, but he should be completely healed heading into training camp. Palmer is blessed with a talented set of receivers to throw to, both outside and at running back. He ended the 2015 season on a down note (responsible for six turnovers in the NFC Championship loss to the Panthers), but is poised for another year as a solid fantasy starter. (May 19)

Cardinals | Carson Palmer to improve in 2016? (Fri Jul 22, 12:53 AM) - Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald expects 'better things' from QB Carson Palmer this season because of Palmer's understanding of head coach Bruce Arians' offensive system.

Our View: Palmer is almost always available outside of the top 6 quarterbacks. If all three of his top receivers can stay healthy this year, that and the added punch of David Johnson playing a larger role will make Palmer a profitable pick as a mid-late QB1.
