Daily Fantasy Stock Report: Cardinals optimistic Carson Palmer will play Thursday

Arians also noted that Palmer doesn’t need any practice time in order to play Thursday, so barring any setbacks it looks like there’s a chance he plays in the Thursday night game. This is big for all members of the Cardinals offense since Drew Stanton really stinks. Should Stanton end up playing, the entire offense would take a major hit. I’m not really buying Palmer being ready for Thursday and having to travel even if its a short trip to San Francisco. I’m very skeptical about his Week 5 availability. Start to look around for other options.

Dwayne Washington suffered a sprained ankle and foot in Sunday’s 17-14 loss to the Chicago Bears, but the rookie running back is hopeful he won’t miss any time with his injuries. Washington left midway through Sunday’s second quarter after he had a 5-yard run called back by a holding penalty and was limping noticeably in the locker room after the game.” Dave Birkett – Detroit Free Press

Lions RB Dwayne Washington left yesterday’s game with a sprained ankle and his Week 5 status isn’t looking too hot. Washington’s absence would give a great boost to Theo Riddick who would be the only real option out of the backfield. After the Lions put up a stinker, Jim Bob Cooter will look to bounce back against Philadelphia.

Mathews will play Sunday, but it will just be a matter of how much. After both Wendell Smallwood and Darren Sproles torched the Steelers in Week 3, the Eagles could afford to limit Mathews’ touches. Monitor practice this week to see if they give Smallwood or Sproles more usage than normal.

This tidbit out of Bears camp could be very intriguing. QB Brian Hoyer has actually looked pretty good in his two games while filling in for Jay Cutler. Cutler has long been the guy, but there’s always been that thought in the back of people’s minds that he’s not the best option for the Bears. With Cutler, Alshon Jeffery has been at his best, whereas with Hoyer it’s been a trio of Kevin White, Zach Miller and Eddie Royal.

Quick Hits:

  • Trevor Siemian‘s shoulder was “very sore” today after landing on his non-throwing arm and being removed from the game
  • Packers Jared Cook (ankle) will be OUT for Week 5
  • Tevin Coleman expects to play in Denver, but his touches will likely be limited due to the high altitude. Stash him on the bench this week
  • Ravens coach John Harbaugh will “ride the hot hand” at running back Week 5. Looking at you Terrence West.
