Description: Arizona coach Bruce Arians says quarterback Drew Stanton 85 percent to return for the playoffs.
Insight: The coach knows he can't win a playoff game with Ryan Lindley or rookie Logan Thomas.
 
12/12/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton left Thursday's game with a knee injury and will get an MRI Friday.
Insight: Ryan Lindley took over Thursday, but rookie Logan Thomas is also an option for Week 16 if Stanton's injury is serious. None of the options are fantasy worthy in Week 16 as they will face the defensing Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.
 
12/11/2014 10:36:00 PM
Description: Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton left Thursday's game with a knee injury and will not return.
Insight: Ryan Lindley took over, even though Logan Thomas was next in line on the depth chart. Stanton was visibly upset, as the injury could be very serious. Stay tuned.
 
12/8/2014 11:36:00 AM
Description: Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton threw for 239 yards and a touchdown as the Cardinals sqeaked out a 17-14 victory over Kansas City
Insight: Stanton wasn't spectacular, but got the job done for the Cardinals. He's still not a very good fantasy option.
 
12/1/2014 9:32:00 AM
Description: Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton threw for 294 yards and a touchdown in a lbad oss to Atlanta.
Insight: Stanton's Cardinals got down 17 point in the first quarter and he was forced to throw more than normal. He's only averaged 195 ypg this season and can't be depended upon to produce at this level on an every week basis, so his fantasy value is still at the low end.
 
Cold11/24/2014 12:11:00 PM
Description: Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton was ugly against the defending Super Bowl champions, throwing for just 149 yards and getting picked off once.
Insight: Stanton's Cardinals couldn't get a ground attack going and he was forced into throwing in bad situations. It didn't help that Larry Fitzgerald was inactive.
 
11/17/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton put together a solid afternoon against a tough Detroit Lions defense.
Insight: Stanton threw for 306 yards and two scores, though he was also intercepted twice. He continues to look for No. 3 receiver John Brown, but Sunday he also got Michael Floyd involved.
 
11/10/2014 10:06:00 AM
Description: Arizona quarterback Drew Stanton is expected to be the guy to lead the 8-1 Cardinals from here on out after Carson Palmer injured a knee Sunday against St. Louis.
Insight: Stanton was 3-of-5 for 85 yards and a touchdown in leading the Cardinals to the win against the Rams. Stanton has three touchdown passes this season - all to John Brown. This is a great opportunity to show he is a starting NFL quarterback and he has plenty of weapons on offense. His fantasy value should be similar to Palmer's value.
 
10/10/2014 10:21:00 PM
Description: Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton has been cleared to play in Week 6 against the Redskins.
Insight: Stanton had to pass one more concussion test in order for doctors to give him the go-ahead to suit up. There is still a chance Carson Palmer gets the start for the first time since Week 1, but this news pretty much rules out Logan Thomas making his first career start in the NFL.
 
10/9/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton (concussion) has yet to pass his final test.
Insight: Stanton apparently is "feeling good", according to Darren Urban, but still has another step to get through, in the concussion protocol. Carson Palmer (shoulder) continues to look unlikely for Week 6 against Washington. Logan Thomas would get his first career start, if both Palmer and Stanton are unable to suit up.
 
10/5/2014 6:34:00 PM
Description: Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton left the Week 5 against the Broncos and is being checked for a concussion.
Insight: With Carson Palmer inactive, that leaves just Logan Thomas to lead the Cardinals offense. Thomas is a rookie out of Virginia Tech.
 
10/3/2014 10:26:00 PM
Description: Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton will get another start in Week 5 against the Broncos.
Insight: Carson Palmer is still not healed from a nerve issue, which will allow Stanton to make his third start of the season. With Pamler's injury acting in an unpredictable way, Stanton could be Arizona's starter for the foreseeable future.
 
9/22/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Cardinals backup quarterback Drew Stanton was the starter again in Week 3 while Carson Palmer tries to get over his shoulder injury and he played well.
Insight: Stanton was 18-of-33 for 244 yards and two scores without throwing an interception. He seemed to favor Michael Floyd over Larry Fitzgerald.
 
9/19/2014 3:50:00 PM
Description: Cardinals backup quarterback Drew Stanton will be the starter in Week 3 while Carson Palmer tries to get over his shoulder injury.
Insight: Stanton was 14-of-29 for 167 yards and no scores against the New York Giants in his first start last Sunday. The Cardinals face the 49ers, so despite having two solid receivers in Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, we recommend staying away.
 
9/15/2014 1:38:00 PM
Description: Cardinals backup quarterback Drew Stanton figures to see another week under center while starter Carson Palmer tries to get over his shoulder injury.
Insight: Stanton was 14-of-29 for 167 yards and no scores against the Giants. The Cardinals have the 49ers next up on the schedule, so despite having two solid receivers in Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, we recommend staying away.
 
9/14/2014 11:19:00 AM
Description: Cardinals backup quarterback Drew Stanton is expected to take over with Carson Palmer sidelined by a shoulder injury.
Insight: Stanton saw plenty of practice this week with Palmer limited. The result could be a move toward the running game and a fall in value for Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.
 
3/20/2013 11:34:00 AM
Description: Cardinals beat writer Kent Somers is reporting that new coach Bruce Arians wants to name his starting quarterback early in the preseason. This bodes well for the newly signed Drew Stanton since he alredy knows Arians' offense.
Insight: Since the choices are Stanton, John Skelton or a rookie, we like the odds for Stanton as the Cardinals' opening day starter.
 
3/13/2013 9:09:00 PM
Description: The Cardinals signed QB Drew Stanton to a three-year contract Wednesday.
Insight: Given Arizona's quarterback woes, Stanton could end up being the starter when the 2013 season kicks off.
 
3/23/2012 5:44:00 PM
Description: Drew Stanton got his wish. Friday, the Jets traded Stanton to the Indianapolis Colts.
Insight: It looks like Andrew Luck has found his new backup quarterback. If Luck gets injured, Stanton will probably be next in line for the Colts QB job.
 
3/22/2012 4:34:00 PM
Description: Now that Tim Tebow is in town, backup quarterback Drew Stanton wants out of New York.
Insight: Stanton's best years came with the Lions, which is never a good sign. Stanton's career-high for touchdowns in a season is four. Tom Brady had six in one half a couple months ago. Wherever he ends up, Stanton won't be fantasy material in 2012.
