2015 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Sep-30-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (9/30): Carson Palmer is absolutely on fire to start the 2015 season. Through three games, he has put up 803 passing yards, nine TDs and two INTs. Although Arizona is playing very well, they also haven't really played a tough opponent yet. Their opponents' combined record is 1-8. Palmer is playing like a QB1 and should be treated as such in the coming weeks. We won't know how good Palmer and the Cardinals are until they play a well-rounded team with a solid defense.
Palmer has stabilized Arizona's QB position over the past two years. He has a 16-6 record in the desert. Last year, he won all six of his starts. After playing well in Week 1 (304 yards and two touchdowns), he missed three games due to a nerve issue in his throwing arm. When he returned to the lineup in Week 6, Carson threw at least two TDs in four straight games and had one 300-yard outing. His season ended in Week 10 because of a torn ACL in his left knee. There hasn't been any negative news regarding his recovery, and Palmer is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Carson has four 4,000-yard seasons on his resume with only one year with more than 30 TDs. The Cardinals are built to play solid defense and deploy a ball-control offense. Palmer has some talent at the wide receiver position, and running back Andre Ellington is a good pass catcher as well. With growth from the offensive line, Carson has a chance to set a career high in passing yards (4,274). At age 35 and with a bum knee, there isn't a lot of room for error. I see more steadiness than explosive upside. Palmer should be drafted as a backup Fantasy QB in 2015 with possible matchup value.
