Recent Player News

  • Posted: 2/7/2018 5:15pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer was placed on the Reserve/Retired list Monday, Feb. 5.

    Huddle Up: The Cardinals will be looking for a new starting quarterback this offseason and probably will acquire a veteran in free agency or a trade. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because their quarterback has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some leagues.

  • Posted: 1/2/2018 2:10pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer announced his retirement Tuesday, Jan. 2, after 15 seasons in the NFL.

    Huddle Up: It's a logical move and makes quarterback a top priority for the Cardinals this offseason. They'll have a chance to draft one in what is a deep quarterback draft class, but the bigger question now is what will Larry Fitzgerald do? He can succeed with anyone as he's proven over his career, but he and Palmer had some of the best chemistry in the league after playing together for five years.

  • Posted: 12/5/2017 9:11pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) will be the team's starting quarterback in 2018 if he decides to play, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: This is only of interest to those in keeper leagues, though Arians is still hoping Palmer will play the final two games in 2017. Either way, Palmer tops out as a reserve these days.

  • Posted: 12/2/2017 6:52pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) is not sure if he will return this season, but he said he continues to prepare as if he will be back. 'We've got another three weeks before I think I can practice, but I feel great,' Palmer said Friday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Palmer is still a longshot to return, and even if he does come back late in the season, there is no reason to expect him to help out fantasy teams.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 12:45pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) has not made the progress he was expected to make in his rehabilitation and is not expected to return this season, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert will continue to man the Cardinals' offense this year. It's unclear what Palmer's football future holds; he'll be 38 years old at the end of the year. Either way, Palmer can be dropped if he hasn't been already.

  • Posted: 11/20/2017 1:19pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) recently had his cast removed from his injured arm, according to head coach Bruce Arians. It has already been said that Palmer could return later this season.

    Huddle Up: The Cardinals could certainly use Palmer back in their huddle, although Blaine Gabbert held his own last week. It may be worth holding on to Palmer for the fantasy playoffs. He'll have a favorable matchup in Week 16 versus the New York Giants if he returns by then.

  • Posted: 11/11/2017 6:21pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) didn't rule out a Week 16 return. 'I could potentially be available the last two weeks of the season,' Palmer said.

    Huddle Up: Even though there is a chance Palmer could return, he can be left on the waiver wire. If you are lucky enough to reach the fantasy playoffs, trusting a returning Palmer would be a recipe for a quick exit.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 1:46pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Palmer will be out at least eight weeks and has a chance to return for the last few games of the season, but owners should drop him in all leagues. Drew Stanton will take over as the starting quarterback but should be avoided in all leagues.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 6:53am ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) will have surgery to repair his broken arm Wednesday, Oct. 25, according to a source. He hopes to return quicker than the eight-week window.

    Huddle Up: Palmer should be dropped in most formats, and his replacement, Drew Stanton, isn't much of an option outside of two-QB leagues.

  • Posted: 10/23/2017 2:16pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) believes he may be able to return in four to six weeks, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Arians said the team will wait to see what the doctors say but that Palmer could be designated to return if he is placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Palmer will be out at least a month and probably will be out longer. Drew Stanton will be the starting quarterback for the time being but should not be an option in any fantasy leagues and likely will hurt the fantasy value of the Cardinals pass catchers.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 1:05pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) suffered a broken left arm during the team's Week 7 game and will need to undergo surgery, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Palmer will miss at least eight weeks and could miss the rest of the season.

    Huddle Up: Drew Stanton will take over as the starting quarterback for the Cardinals and did not play well when he replaced Palmer in Week 7. He can be avoided in all leagues and likely will hurt the fantasy value of the Cardinals pass catchers.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 11:09am ET

    Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (arm) suffered a left arm injury in Week 7 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Palmer will be able to return to the game. Palmer has posted solid numbers over the last few weeks and is a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 fantasy quarterback when healthy.
