Fantasy Analysis
Week 13 Projections
Facing the Redskins at home, the question in Week 13 will be if Carson Palmer can keep the Cardinals close with the red hot Kirk Cousins at QB for Washington. With Johnson and Fitzgerald being his only reliable weapons at the moment, that issue is very much in doubt.
Passsing: 270 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 3 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: 3575 Yards, 17 TD, 18 INT.
Rushing: 40 Yards, 0 TD.
