Summary

Carson Palmer, the first overall pick by the Bengals in the 2003 draft, was a stellar fantasy quarterback early in his career; but the last time he finished in the top ten at his position was 2007. He's entering his second year with the Cardinals, after having spent the prior two years with the Raiders. Palmer had a few huge games for the Cardinals last season, but enough clunkers to relegate him to fantasy backup status in leagues that start one QB. The best bet is that things won't be remarkably different this season. He'll still have some outstanding targets on the outside in Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, and his offensive line should be improved, but on the whole, Palmer's days as a fantasy starter appear to be behind him.
