2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Another ACL injury ended Carson Palmerís 2014 season early, leaving him as the No. 31 quarterback for the season. However, the truth is Palmer is being underrated, as he is currently going undrafted in most drafts, in the early-to-mid 20s among quarterbacks. With Palmer being a relatively immobile quarterback to begin with, the now fully repaired ACL shouldnít be too much of a problem. Itís also worth noting that Palmer has been through this injury in the past and it did not have a dramatic impact on his on-field ability. Heís now 35 years old so heís definitely nearing the end of his career, but fantasy owners, particularly in redraft leagues, would be wise not to forget about the veteran passer late in their drafts.

Palmer has thrown for over 4,000 yards in each of his past two full seasons and was well on pace to hit that number again in 2014 before the injury. His biggest downfall has typically been throwing too many interceptions, along with being a non-factor in the running game. Palmer threw 22 interceptions in his first season as a Cardinal back in 2013 and he has thrown 15 or more in five of the nine seasons in which he has played at least 10 games. On the bright side, Palmer had actually drastically cut down on his mistakes through the first six games of 2014. His three interceptions were definitely acceptable and his 11 touchdowns would have put him on pace for 29 on the year -- a number that would have put him in the top 10 at the position. With the Cardinals offense not drastically changing, look for Palmer to put up solid numbers again this season, especially if he can find the chemistry again with his young wideout John Brown. Heís not the most exciting quarterback on the board, but given his ADP, thereís a great chance heíll give you a positive return this season.

Injury Arizona's LG Iupati to have knee surgery
Could be out six weeks
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 19, 8:49 pm

Arizona Cardinals
An Arizona Cardinals offensive line that seemed so promising throughout the offseason is now riddled with question marks. Left guard Mike Iupati, signed away from the San Francisco 49ers in March, is expected to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery that will sideline the three-time Pro Bowler for about six weeks, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday, via a source who has spoken to Iupati. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Coming off a year that saw the team dwindle without its starting quarterback, the loss of one of the team's best lineman casts even more doubt over Arizona's offense. Already taxed with RT Bobbie Massie's three-game suspension, Carson Palmer and company may struggle to move the chains at the outset of 2015.


Injury Carson Palmer: "I'm not thinking about my knee"
Completing rehab from ACL tear, building rapport with John Brown
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 16, 6:15 pm

Arizona Cardinals
As it was last year, Carson Palmer has brought WR John Brown to southern California to live with him and work out. And as it was last year, Palmer feels he is throwing well, sharpening his mental game - and feeling no problems with his knee. ďIím not even thinking about my knee,Ē Palmer said. ďIím still rehabbing just to be on the safe side of things but I donít need to be at rehab. Iím full go in the weight room, full go on the field, and until itís brought up, I havenít thought about what Iím not doing because Iím doing everything I was doing.Ē (azcardinals.com)

FFToday's Take: The report is as much a thumbs-up on Palmer's state of mind as it is another reminder that Brown is poised for a breakout season if his close friend can stay healthy. Palmer, who was limited to six games in 2014, could have thrown for 4,336 yards and 29 touchdowns had he maintained his per-game average over 16 contests. Brown went 20-315-3 in Palmer's six games under center, suggesting he will have no problem building upon his 48-696-5 line as a rookie.
