Fantasy football start/sit advice Week 15: Carson Palmer has tough test vs. Titans

Despite the recent hot streak, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is in danger of cooling off versus a tenacious Titans secondary. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is amid something of a career resurgence under the tutelage of new head coach Bruce Arians.

Though he has been an up-and-down fantasy option over the course of the season, Palmer has been especially good of late, ranking eighth among quarterbacks over the past four games. In that span, Palmer has completed 70 percent of his passes and thrown eight touchdowns and two interceptions while averaging 326 yards in each game.

Fantasy Spin: Unfortunately for Palmer and his fantasy owners, he will be facing the Tennessee Titans' defense in Week 15, which boasts a secondary far superior to that of the Texans, Jaguars, Colts and Eagles, who Palmer has picked apart over the last month of the season. Despite being lit up by Peyton Manning and the Broncos in Week 14, the Titans have allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season, and are led by one of the league's shutdown corners in Alterraun Verner.

Palmer has his work cut out for him in Week 15 as is, but could potentially be shorthanded with breakout receiver Michael Floyd hampered by an ankle injury. In short, this looks to be a week that Palmer comes back to earth, and if his fantasy owners are relying on him to advance in the playoffs, their season could be coming to an end.
