2014 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Jul-04-2014 by Brad Kruse
Carson Palmer stabilized the quarterback position for Arizona after his arrival in 2013. He started all 16 games and produced a 36-percent bump in fantasy points for the Arizona quarterbacks. It sounds impressive, but he only scored 18 fantasy PPG. That level of production resulted in a QB15 finish. With Michael Floyd continuing his evolution, the addition of a more stable list of tight ends to work with and a year of Andre Ellington as his lead running back, Palmer can improve yet again and approach the 20 PPG totals you look for in a QB1. Palmer should not be expected to have tremendous upside despite having a nice array of weapons (Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald and Ellington). The NFC West is a tough place to play and Palmer will struggle to consistently put up difference-making points. Luckily, he doesn't carry anything close to a QB1 value, so he'll be one of the many solid floor, low ceiling options at QB2.
Editor's note: Palmer will sometimes go undrafted in redraft and does not even move the needle on our ADP list. In our high-stakes ADP rankings, the former USC QB is the 21st QB selected at pick No. 151.
