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)
