It's fair to say Carson Palmer's finger's been a little more of an issue than he's let on. Good news: It looked better in practice this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Palmer has been listed as probable with a finger injury for the last three games. In the first game, he shredded the Packers. Then he struggled against the Seahawks in the season finale and then was shaky in a rematch with the Packers in the Divisional Round.

Scouting Report

NFC Championship at Carolina

Carson Palmer had a pair of interceptions against the Packers last week, but his 349 passing yards and three touchdowns made him a solid fantasy option anyway. Palmer is coming off an MVP-caliber season and he looks better than he ever has as the Cardinals try to make it to the Super Bowl.

Palmer faces a Panther defense that frustrated Seattle last week, particularly in the first half, and was tied for seventh in the league this year with only 21 passing touchdowns allowed to opposing offenses. Still, all the quarterbacks have tough matchups this week, and three out of four of them are elite players. While we rank Palmer third amongst the four starters, as long as you have one of the top three, you’ll be in good shape this week in most fantasy leagues.
