Carson Palmer injury: Cardinals QB questionable for fantasy owners Sunday

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is questionable for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ralph Freso

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is listed as questionable for the team's Week 15 matchup with the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Palmer is dealing with an elbow injury, and was a limited participant in practice on all three days this week.

Palmer was given the same questionable designation with the same injury (and the same lack of practice time) last week, but he ended up starting against the NFC West rival St. Louis Rams. In that game, Palmer completed 27 of 32 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown, with no interceptions.

This has been a solid season for Palmer, though he obviously hasn't been perfect. For the most part, these past few weeks have been vastly superior to the beginning of the season. Arizona is in the playoff hunt at this point, so having Palmer active is important.

Fantasy Impact: There's no reason to prepare a backup at this point. Palmer is an outside QB2 option this week, and it's almost certain he'll be under center against Tennessee. He hasn't suffered any setbacks, or at least, we haven't heard of any. There are better options out there, but if you must, he should play.
