Analyzing Carson Palmer's Long-Term Fantasy Value in 2013 After Week 5
A hot commodity in fantasy drafts leading up to the season, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has hit rock bottom in his 2013 campaign.
Palmer was projected by many as a hot pick, and why not? He has a star receiver in Larry Fitzgerald and a head coach in Bruce Arians who loves to get vertical.
Against Carolina in Week 5, Palmer's disappointing season continued. He completed just 19 passes for 175 yards and three interceptions (his touchdown came with the game already decided) while leading the Cardinals to a 22-6 victory over the Panthers.
The win here means little from a fantasy perspective. Palmer's production aligns well with the rest of the season to date in which he has thrown for over 300 yards, two touchdowns and completed over 60 percent of his passes just once.
Palmer is tasked with playing behind a mediocre line, but his nine interceptions to just four touchdowns passes negate anything positive he has done from a fantasy standpoint.
Once again Arizona is a fantasy wasteland, and this time it is the embattled Palmer at the head of the circus. At this point it's safe to boot him off all fantasy rosters. Matchup plays that favor in Palmer's direction are even out of the line of reasoning at this point thanks to his offensive line and lack of weapons.
