Mark Dalton - [Full Article]

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer confirmed that he will return for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Impact:

Palmer finished as the #19 QB (#18 in PPG) after a #5 finish the year before. He threw nine fewer touchdowns and three additional interceptions. It appears that Palmer's best fantasy days are behind him.

Scouting Report

Week 17 vs. Los Angeles

Carson Palmer had 284 yards and a touchdown against the Seahawks last week and managed not to turn the ball over. Palmer has been uneven at best this season and the Cardinals have chosen to lean wisely on the running game instead over the later part of the year.

Los Angeles is top ten in passing yards allowed this year, but only the Packers, Jets and Browns have given up more touchdown passes. Still, it’s hard to trust Palmer to finish strong after such a disappointing season, and fantasy owners should look elsewhere if possible.
