Carson Palmer limited in practice Wednesday, expected to start for fantasy finals against Seahawks

The Cardinals quarterback was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (ankle sprain) was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, according to Cardinals beat reporter Darren Urban. Palmer is expected to start the team's Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Palmer has won six of his last seven starts. The Cardinals as a team are on fire. Palmer has been above average lately, but he's not in the upper echelon of fantasy quarterbacks.

Odds are fantasy owners will want to bench him this week. A game in Seattle doesn't fair well for most any quarterback, just ask the Saints' Drew Brees.

Palmer's best option in the passing game Larry Fitzgerald may or may not be available for the game on Sunday. If he's out, Palmer's fantasy value definitely takes a hit this week.

In deeper leagues, fantasy owners may not have a choice but to start Palmer, but if you do have another option available, you may want to steer clear of the Cardinals' gun slinger.
