AZCardinals.com - [Full Article]

Cards GM Steve Keim said running back David Johnson (wrist) was doing well but the rehab is time-consuming. “We will continue to monitor that to see if he can come back this season,” Keim said.

As for Carson Palmer, Keim said there were a lot of “moving parts” for his potential return as well. He also acknowledged Palmer’s return will be influenced at least some on how the Cards are playing.

Fantasy Impact:

The key to this is author Darren Urban added, "Just judging by Keim’s tone, there was less optimism for returns of those star players than I had figured previously." As we kind of expected, the return of both players could very well be determined by whether or not the Cards are in the playoff hunt. If they're not in the hunt, it really doesn't seem to make a lot of sense for either to get back into game action this season.

Scouting Report

Week 7 at Rams (game in London)

Carson Palmer had a great game against the Bucs last week, putting up 283 yards, 3 touchdowns, and a pick in a shootout. Palmer has been steady since his Week 1 debacle, and should provide solid streaming and week-to-week value for fantasy owners looking to upgrade.

This week, Palmer faces a Rams defense been better against the pass than the run, and that is tied for fifth in interceptions, which might cause some turnovers for Palmer. That being said, he’s been steady as of late and should be a fringe starter in most league formats. This could be another shootout, and Palmer should have enough volume to put up numbers.
