Cardinals QB Carson Palmer struggled to play in wet conditions in Miami, notching just 145 yards, 2 TDs and 2 INTs. He added 3 fumbles and absorbed 3 sacks. Palmer hit secondary targets Brittan Golden and J.J. Nelson for short-range scores, giving him 4 straight games with 2+ TD passes. Palmer’s in play for Sunday’s home date with the Saints but should be avoided in Week 16 at Seattle.

The Cardinals on Monday placed LT Jared Veldheer on IR. He needs surgery to repair a partially torn right triceps. He had previously suffered the same injury in his left arm in 2013 and missed 10 games after the repair. Veldheer's a big loss for an offense that has proved surprisingly inconsistent throwing the ball and just allowed 8 sacks in the loss at Carolina. QB Carson Palmer takes the biggest hit here -- literally and figuratively. We'll see what Veldheer's loss means to the running game, but the tough RB landscape keeps us from altering RB David Johnson's fantasy outlook at all.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (hamstring) is active and starting against the Seahawks tonight. That hammy shouldn’t be much of an issue, but Seattle’s 3rd-ranked QB defense sure is. Palmer is just a QB2 for Week 7.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (hamstring) will start against the Seahawks tonight, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms. Palmer got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, but we never heard any concern about his status. He's still just a QB2 vs. Seattle's stingy defense.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, and HC Bruce Arians confirmed that his QB is "fine." Still, a struggling Palmer isn't a recommended fantasy starter vs. a tough Seattle defense.

Injury Predictor

Palmer’s 36 and coming off a career-best season that included eye-popping efficiency metrics. The Cardinals ranked a modest 19th in pass attempts per game, he’s unlikely to see super high volume with David Johnson in the mix. Michael Floyd and John Brown look like ascending talents. Larry Fitzgerald is a decline risk, but he enjoyed a bounce-back year in 2015. Ultimately, Palmer’s unlikely to drop to the 8th or 9th round range, but he certainly projects favorably as a QB1.
