Carson Palmer has horrible outing for Cardinals, fantasy owners in win over Seahawks

Carson Palmer had another bad game in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer did his best to lose Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. He completed just over half his passes, threw for under 200 yards, had a single touchdown and threw for a whopping four interceptions.

If you somehow made it to the fantasy football championships with Palmer at the helm, then you are some kind of mysterious running back, wide receiver or tight end guru, because Palmer has been bad this season. He also probably lost you your championship in Week 16 if you thought to start him against Seattle's secondary, widely considered to be the most talented group in the league.

Somehow, Palmer even failed at losing. The Cardinals' defense picked up the slack and Jay Feely kicked the Cardinals to a victor. Palmer did provide the winning score, a 31-yard touchdown pass to Michael Floyd in the fourth quarter, but his final stats were simply poor.

Fantasy Impact: Palmer completed 13 of 25 passes for 178 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions. The touchdown being a game-winner doesn't matter for fantasy owners. The four interceptions are what counts. If you started him and interceptions have a significant impact in your league, you surely came up short in your fantasy matchups. But why were you trusting Palmer anyway?
