In 2009, Carson Palmer was coming off an elbow injury, added a thumb injury, and ran a run-oriented team.
In 2010, the Bengals are expected to throw more, he has more weapons (Antonio Bryant, Jermaine Gresham, Jordan Shipley) to throw to, and Palmer is healthy. The bottom line is that his stats will improve.
Palmer will be consistent as your every-week starter. When the top 10 quarterbacks are off the board in your fantasy draft, snatch up Palmer.
