Fantasy Analysis
Week 4 Projections
When a team starts out 1-2 there is a lot of blame to share, but most of it goes to the QB. Carson Palmer barely completed 50% of his passes and threw four INTs against the Bills in Week 3. This week he faces a Rams team that is starting to flex it's muscles. We expect him to bounce back from the Bills debacle and have a game more typical of his ability but with a slight touch of hesitation.
Passsing: 298 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 1 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Don't let the memories of Palmer's disappointing injury-plagued NFC Championship game meltdown against the Carolina Panthers cloud your judgment. Before Palmer suffered that troublesome finger injury that clearly affected his accuracy, the Cardinals gunslinger was a legitimate Most Valuable Player candidate and a steady No. 1 fantasy passer during the regular season. Despite head coach Bruce Arians' desire to feature a more balanced offensive attack, Palmer racked up career bests in passing yards and set a franchise record for touchdown passes to finish as the fantasy QB5. The same playbook and playmakers remain in place for 2016. Palmer will turn 37 in December, but a decline in the immobile pocket passer's skills shouldn't be a worry this year. Michael Floyd continues to emerge as the team's all-around top threat while the ageless Larry Fitzgerald still excels at making chain-moving grabs. John Brown and J.J. Nelson are both dangerous deep threats, and David Johnson is an excellent receiver out of the backfield. However, with Johnson emerging as a powerful running threat and earning Arians' confidence, a little less throwing from Palmer isn't out of the question. Even though he has made it through 2015 without missing a game, there's obviously an injury risk associated with a 37-year-old quarterback who isn't a scrambler.

Passing: 3670 Yards, 25 TD, 14 INT.
Rushing: 14 Yards, 1 TD.
