Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Serves as efficient game manager in Week 5 win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Stanton completed 11 of 28 passes for 124 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's 33-21 victory over the 49ers. He also lost two yards on two rushes.

The veteran backup did just enough to help the Cardinals grab the much-needed win, while also benefitting from the three turnovers the defense forced and a standout effort from David Johnson. Stanton found Larry Fitzgerald for both of his touchdown passes, with the initial one coming from 21 yards out following the first of two picks of Blaine Gabbert. Stanton then led a six-play, 71-yard drive early in the third quarter that he capped off with a 29-yard scoring dart to Fitzgerald, extending the Cardinals lead to 21-7 at the time. In completing well under 50 percent of his passes and averaging a meager 4.4 yards per attempt, the 32-year-old was clearly not the driving force behind the win, but also didn't turn the ball over. With 11 days before a Week 6 Monday night matchup against the Jets, Carson Palmer (concussion) stands a good chance of returning as the starter, with Stanton reverting to his customary backup role.

Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton will start in place of Carson Palmer (concussion) for Thursday's contest at San Francisco, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The NFL's protocol for head injuries exists to protect players from returning too soon, and without clearance from an independent neurologist -- let alone an appearance in practice this week -- Palmer won't make the trip to the Bay Area. Consequently, Stanton will handle quarterback duties for the Cardinals in Week 5, as he did in eight starts during the 2014 campaign. Stanton didn't exactly prosper, though, completing 55 percent of his passes, averaging 203 yards per game, and recording a 6:5 TD:INT ratio.

Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Likely under center Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Stanton will likely serve as the Cardinals' starting quarterback Thursday in San Francisco with Carson Palmer (concussion) unlikely to play.

In relief of Palmer and the Cardinals seeking a game-winning drive Sunday, Stanton wasn't up to the task, completing four of 11 passes for 37 yards and two interceptions. Previously, Stanton started eight games during the 2014 season for Palmer, and while he led the team to five victories, he managed a miserable 54.9 completion percentage, 203.3 passing yards per game and a 6:5 TD:INT ratio, which translated to a 76.3 quarterback rating.

Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Throws two picks in relief
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Stanton completed four of 11 attempts for 37 yards and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Stanton got two cracks at the Los Angeles defense in the closing minutes of the game and turned the ball over on both drives. If Carson Palmer, who exited Sunday's game to undergo concussion protocol, misses any time - recent history says to expect more turnovers for the opposing defense. In his last seven outings in which he has attempted 10 or more passes, Stanton has a touchdown:interception ratio of four:nine, including four picks and no touchdowns in his last two such appearances.

Cardinals' Drew Stanton: Locked in as No. 2 quarterback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stanton will be the Cardinals' No. 2 quarterback, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

No. 3 quarterback Matt Barkley had a nice showing in Sunday's preseason game against the Texans, but his roster fate will ultimately still depend on whether the Cardinals are willing keep three quarterbacks. Stanton is locked in as Carson Palmer's top backup.
