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 | Day off for Carson Palmer (Wed Aug 24, 02:15 PM) - Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer received the day off from practice Wednesday, Aug. 24.

Cardinals | Carson Palmer struggles Friday (Fri Aug 19, 10:10 PM) - Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer completed four of his eight passes for 37 yards and an interception in three series against the San Diego Chargers Friday, Aug. 19.

Our View: The Chargers defense got ran over by the Titans last week, but Palmer without John Brown and Larry Fitzgerald had less success. He was taken to the house by Brandon Flowers and looked nothing like the Palmer we saw before his finger injury last year derailed the postseason. If he looks this bad again next week, it is reason to be open to a slow start, but being short-handed in the wide receiver group is a plausible excuse for now.
