Cardinals trade for Carson Palmer

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Cardinals added QB Carson Palmer Tuesday, and they didn’t have to give up much to get him.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Cards completed the deal with the Raiders in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2014.

The condition is that he starts 13 games, meaning if he falls short of being the full-time starter, the Cards don’t owe them a thing.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is big news for Larry Fitzgerald owners. Even mediocre QB play should be a big upgrade for Fitzy. A QB change had already been priced into his ADP (3.02) but his stock may rise a bit further now that the news is official. As for Palmer, he should post his usually decent fantasy numbers, especially if the Cardinals often find themselves in catch-up mode in 2013.
