One by one, Carson Palmer's passes landed softly in the hands of their intended targets.
Larry Fitzgerald. Michael Floyd. John Brown. Jaron Brown. One by one, Palmer hit them in stride, throwing his passes so perfectly that the receivers didn’t have to adjust a muscle to come down with the football.
Through the first two weeks of training camp, Palmer has defied expectations that accompany a 35-year-old who’s coming off a second major knee surgery and a rehabbed nerve that damaged his throwing shoulder. The proof came in a 65-yard bomb to John Brown that was perfect.
Palmer is definitely one of our sneaky, late round QB picks who could put up good enough fantasy numbers to at least make owners consider starting him a lot of weeks this year. Taking Palmer late will allow owners to load up at other positions.
