Description: Arizona QB Carson Palmer has no idea when he'll be able to return to the field.
Insight: "It's just one of those things you've just got to wait and hope it wakes up," he told the Arizona Republic. Drew Stanton started and won the game with the Giants, though he wasn't fantasy worthy.
 
12/29/2013 8:15:00 PM
Description: Arizona QB Carson Palmer turned in a gutsy performance Sunday in what turned out to be the Cardinals' final game of the season.
Insight: He threw for 407 yards on 28-of-49 passing. It was Palmer's second 400-yard game of the season. Arizona finished the year at 10-6, one game out of the final wild card spot. Ironically, Green Bay (8-7-1) and the winner of tonight's Dallas/Philadelphia game will both be going to the postseason despite having a worse record than the Cardinals.
 
12/22/2013 2:53:00 PM
Description: Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (elbow) is active for Sunday's game with Seattle.
Insight: Active or not, its not a great matchup facing this tough Seahawks defense.
 
12/14/2013 11:02:00 AM
Description: Ignore the questionable label attached to Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (elbow). He's going to start Sunday against Tennessee.
Insight: He's carried the questionable label into the last several games and played in all of them. According to ESPN's John Clayton, this week shouldn't be any different. Palmer's 85.6 quarterback rating this season is his highest since 2007.
 
12/8/2013 2:56:00 PM
Description: Carson Palmer will get the start at QB Sunday against the Rams.
Insight: Palmer had been questionable with an elbow injury. He threw for 327 yards and two touchdowns against St. Louis in the season opener.
 
12/7/2013 3:51:00 PM
Description: According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (elbow) took all of Arizona's snaps at Saturday's walkthrough and is expected to start Sunday against the Rams.
Insight: Palmer suffered an elbow injury in Week 13 against the Eagles and has been limited in practice. While he has thrown for multiple touchdowns in five straight games and 300-plus yards in three, Palmer should not be started as a QB1 against a Rams team that is tied for fifth in the NFL with 37 sacks, not when he's dealing with a sore elbow.
 
12/6/2013 2:52:00 PM
Description: Arizona coach Bruce Arians "is confident" quarterback Carson Palmer will start Sunday despite calling him a game-time decision. Palmer suffered an elbow injury on a strip sack Sunday against the Eagles.
Insight: Palmer has been limited during practice all this week. Drew Stanton is the backup.
 
12/5/2013 6:00:00 PM
Description: Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer suffered an elbow injury on a strip sack Sunday against the Eagles. He was limited in Thursday's practice, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.
Insight: Palmer has thrown multiple touchdowns in each of the last five games and hit the 300-yard bonus in three straight. However, with the elbow injury still bothering him he shouldn't be trusted as a QB1 in Week 14.
 
11/17/2013 5:05:00 PM
Description: Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer toasted Jacksonville for 419 yards and two touchdowns Sunday afternoon.
Insight: For the first time all season, Palmer didn't turn the football over. He's not a trusted fantasy option despite this big performance.
 
9/14/2013 11:16:00 AM
Description: Arizona QB Carson Palmer is not expected to play Sunday, according to Ian Rapoport of nfl.com
Insight: Palmer was a game-time deicsion and was out there warming up, but apparently his shoulder is too sore to play. Drew Stanton gets the start. This can't help Larry Fitzgerald or Michael Floyd.
 
9/12/2013 3:14:00 PM
Description: Arizona QB Carson Palmer is listed as probable, but hasn't thrown much in practice this week due to a shoulder issue.
Insight: bruce Arians called it a "nerve thing" which doesn't tell us much. Drew Stanton is the backup, but that's not going to help fantasy owners. At least it's an early game and fantasy owners will have time to change to their backup should Palmer not be ready to go.
 
4/2/2013 2:42:00 PM
Description: Carson Palmer has been traded to Arizona for draft picks.
Insight: The Raiders acquired Matt Flynn from Seattle yesterday making Palmer expendable. Palmer will have a superstar receiver in Larry Fitzgerald along with youngster Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts, so he should be able to produce decent numbers if the offensive line can hold their blocks.
 
4/1/2013 9:30:00 PM
Description: The Carson Palmer to Arizona trade appears to be falling apart.
Insight: Jason La Canfora from CBS Sports says the deal has "hit a snag" and that it's uncertain "if it can be overcome at this point." The Raiders acquired Matt Flynn from Seattle earlier in the day so it doesn't look like Palmer will be needed next season. If the Cards and Raiders can't get past this snag, Oakland will likely look to trade Palmer somewhere else.
 
4/1/2013 11:46:00 AM
Description: It's looking more and more like Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer will be traded to the Arizona Cardinals. Oakland is also set to trade for Seattle backup Matt Flynn.
Insight: Palmer would apparently like to go to Tampa Bay where confidence in Josh Freeman is growing short, but he and Larry Fitzgerald could be a dynamic combination for the Cardinals.
 
3/28/2013 4:43:00 PM
Description: Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer has balked at the team's request that he take a $3 million pay cut from his $13 million base salary, which Yahoo! Sports' Mike Silver says is a sign that Palmer no longer wants to play for Oakland.
Insight: Sources say that a divorce is imminent. "Carson isn't 28, and he doesn't know how much time he has left," one source close to Palmer said Wednesday. "Does he want to be with a team that is clearly rebuilding and looks like it's a long way away from contending, where he doesn't have a whole lot around him? He's gotten to play a lot in his career, but he hasn't gotten to experience a lot of winning. At this point, I think being somewhere where they have a chance to win is the most important thing."
 
12/25/2012 3:25:00 PM
Description: Oakland QB Carson Palmer won't play in Week 17 after taking a big hit and suffering two broken ribs and a bruised lung.
Insight: Matt Leinart took over but we expect Terrelle Pryor to see work as well. Neither holds much fantasy value in the final week of the season.
 
12/23/2012 1:44:00 PM
Description: Oakland QB Carson Palmer left Sunday's game after taking a huge hit to his back by Panthers DE Greg Hardy. Palmer won't return.
Insight: Matt Leinart took over but we expect Terrelle Pryor to get his first extensive NFL action if Palmer cannot return to the game. Pryor caught Palmer's only completion of the day, a 22-yarder.
 
Hot11/11/2012 5:35:00 PM
Description: Oakland QB Carson Palmer has taken advantage of huge deficits the last two games to post excellent fantasy numbers.
Insight: The Raiders have been put in 28-10 and 34-10 holes the last two weeks and have needed Palmer to throw the ball 106 times for 782 yards and six touchdowns in losses to the Buccaneers and Ravens.
 
11/5/2012 10:43:00 AM
Description: Oakland QB Carson Palmer amassed a season-high 414 passing yards Sunday in a 42-32 loss to Tampa Bay.
Insight: Throwing for 400 yards looks good on paper but in reality, Palmer really wasn't all that sharp. Though he did distribute four touchdown passes, Palmer also gave away three interceptions while completing just 39 of his 61 throws. The good news for Palmer owners is that both of the Raiders' running backs are injured so he'll have no choice but to air it out next week in Baltimore.
 
Hot10/22/2012 11:42:00 AM
Description: Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer is averaging 288.7 yards passing per game.
Insight: Palmer might not be the flashiest quarterback in fantasy but he has thrown for over 295 yards four times this season and his QB rating is a respectable 86.0. He erupted for 298 yards and a touchdown Sunday in Oakland's overtime win over Jacksonville.
