One day after his head coach stepped away from football, Carson Palmer followed suit.
The Arizona Cardinals quarterback announced his retirement on Tuesday after 15 seasons in the National Football League.
Palmer said "I just know" in reference as to why he was hanging it up at this point. The Cards are now left without a head coach and a QB. Blaine Gabbert showed some signs during a brief stint but was later benched for Drew Stanton and didn't play. The team does return David Johnson at RB.
ARI QB Carson Palmer - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
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.
