Quick fantasy outlook: Carson Palmer was the first overall pick in the 2003 draft. Selected by the Bengals, Palmer was productive for many years in Cincinnati before he grew disenchanted with that franchise and was traded to the Raiders. He looked fresher in Oakland than he did in his final years in Cincinnati, throwing crisper passes and a better deep ball en route to a 4,000-yard season in 2012. The Cardinals traded for Palmer this offseason and immediately named him their starter heading into 2013. Palmer is not very mobile, but he has good awareness in the pocket and can move his feet to create passing lanes. He'll have an extremely talented receiver to throw to in Larry Fitzgerald, along with a developing Michael Floyd. A big concern, however, is the Cardinals offensive line. Arizona quarterbacks were sacked 58 times last season, worst in the league, and Palmer will need time in the pocket to take advantage of his downfield threats.
