  • Palmer completed 18 of 22 passes for 283 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 38-33 win over the Buccaneers. He also lost four yards on five rushes and logged a fumble and fumble recovery. The veteran signal caller posted a spectacular 81.8 percent completion rate and 139.4 rating for the contest, while also averaging 12.9 yards per attempt. All three numbers -- along with his trio of touchdown passes -- were season highs for Palmer, who once again displayed a prolific connection with Larry Fitzgerald to the tune of 10 receptions, 138 yards and one score. With the newly signed Adrian Peterson turning back the clock Sunday with 134 yards on 26 rushes, Palmer notably put up less than 30 pass attempts for the first time all season. If Peterson's performance is more than a one-game outlier, the balance he'll bring to the offense could make Palmer even more effective than he's already proven to be this season. The 37-year-old will look to deliver once again versus the Rams in Week 7.

  • Palmer completed 28 of 44 passes for 291 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-7 loss to the Eagles. Arizona's offense struggled early with five drives of less than 25 yards in its first six possessions, but Palmer came away with a solid, but unspectacular, stat sheet. The loss of David Johnson continues to hurt the Cardinals' overall, but the results probably benefit Palmer from a fantasy perspective. Without much of a running game, Palmer has thrown for at least 325 yards in three of his last four games. He hasn't scored much, -- as evidenced by a TD:INT ratio of 5:2 during that span -- but if you're looking for a quarterback that is going to have the chuck it up a ton to put his team in position to win, Palmer is your man.

  • Palmer completed 29 of 48 passes for 325 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 28-17 loss to the Cowboys. Palmer was regularly under siege by Dallas' pass rush, as evidenced by the six sacks he took in Arizona's losing effort. Despite limited time to throw, he was still able to manufacture a second straight game with over 320 passing yards. With a touchdown on both sides of halftime, Palmer also managed to double his season total without adding any more turnovers to his tally. As Palmer and the Cardinals offense searches for ways to replace David Johnson's (wrist) production, a home matchup against the 49ers awaits in Week 4.

  • Palmer completed 19 of 36 passes for 332 yards with one touchdown and one interception while adding six yards on three rushes in Sunday's 16-13 overtime win at Indianapolis. Palmer failed to connect with Larry Fitzgerald on 4th and goal from the one-yard line early in the second quarter, but did eventually find pay dirt in the fourth on a 45-yard pass to J.J. Nelson to spur a late comeback from a 13-3 deficit. While the running game stumbled in David Johnson's (wrist) absence, Nelson and Jaron Brown stepped up at wide receiver with John Brown (quad) out and Fitzgerald having a quiet day. Arizona's offense still possesses enough weapons to make Palmer dangerous in favorable matchups, though Week 3's Monday Night Football matchup with the Cowboys isn't one of those.

  • Cardinals' Carson Palmer: Tosses three picks Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Palmer completed 27 of 48 passes for 269 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions during Sunday's defeat at Detroit. The Cardinals' pass-to-run ratio (48:18) was a bit odd, considering head coach Bruce Arians had David Johnson at his disposal and Arizona held a lead until the 9:27 mark of the fourth quarter. During the course of the game, Johnson was lost with what has been deemed a sprained wrist, while left tackle D.J. Humphries sustained a knee injury of unknown severity. If those two key cogs miss time -- Johnson, at the very least, is expected to do so -- much of the offensive onus could land on Palmer's right arm. With one reliable option likely down, Larry Fitzgerald, J.J. Nelson, John Brown and Andre Ellington may have to suffice as Palmer's top receivers for the time being.
