Drew Stanton comes back down to earth
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

If Drew Stanton's performance Week 11 against Detroit, when he threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns, got Fantasy owners thinking the Cardinals wouldn't really miss Carson Palmer at quarterback, his performance Week 12 at Seattle was a dose of reality. He threw for just 149 yards and an interception.

Granted, it was against one of the league's best defenses, but still, it was closer to what you'd expect from a career backup. So in five starts between two different injuries for Palmer, Stanton has had two games in which he's offered relevant Fantasy production. In the other three, he's fallen well short -- perhaps even embarrassingly short considering his receiving corps.

When ranking all 32 starting quarterbacks for Fantasy purposes, he may not be at the very bottom, but he's not far off. Most likely, even owners in two-quarterback leagues will want to pass on him.

Cardinals QB Drew Stanton held in check vs. Seahawks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton completed just 14 of his 26 pass attempts for 149 yards with no touchdowns and one interception while adding 23 rushing yards on four carries in his team's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks in Week 12.

Stanton had virtually no chance against a stout Seahawks secondary in Seattle while missing Larry Fitzgerald (knee). He was able to lead his second drive into Seahawks territory mainly on a pass-interference call but watched the Arizona kicker miss a 49-yard field goal. He didn't get the ball into Seattle territory again until his last drive of the first half, but the Cardinals had to settle for a short field goal with seconds left before halftime. The Cardinals were unable to penetrate further than the Seattle 40-yard line in the second half.

Stanton appeared to potentially suffer an ankle injury while failing on a third-down conversion in his final offensive drive but said after the game that it was nothing serious and that he would have come back into the game had the offense gotten the ball back. He may receive a little extra rest this week but should be good to go for his Week 13 matchup with the Falcons.

Drew Stanton throws for career-high 306 yards, two TDs
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton completed 21 of 32 throws for a career-high 306 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in the Week 11 win over the Lions. Stanton threw touchdowns to wideout Michael Floyd on Arizona's first two possessions before bogging down against the league's top-ranked defense.

On the opening drive, Stanton threw high to the corner of the end zone and let Floyd box out his defender for a 42-yard score. The second touchdown was a well-timed 12-yard out route.

Stanton has thrown five touchdowns against two interceptions in five games this season. He'll visit Seattle in Week 12.

New starter Drew Stanton has not committed a turnover
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals will go with quarterback Drew Stanton the rest of the season, and he says he's ready for the job. In the four games in which he's appeared, Stanton has thrown for 614 yards and three touchdowns without an interception or a lost fumble.

The only blemish is his 49.5 percent completion rate.

"It's an opportunity I've been looking forward to for a long time," he told the team's website after Carson Palmer was placed on IR with a torn ACL. "It's been eight years that I've been working toward this, so I don't take it lightly. It comes under unfortunate circumstances, without a doubt, but it's also, like I was saying [Sunday], part of my job description."

Coach Bruce Arians said Stanton has "proven to everybody he's more than capable of finishing the job this team has started."

Stanton plays the Lions' top-ranked defense in Week 11.

Cardinals QB Drew Stanton comes on in relief
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton came on in relief of Carson Palmer Week 10.

Palmer went down with a knee injury early in the fourth quarter, paving the way for Stanton. Though Stanton only had five attempts, he made them count. Stanton completed three passes for 85 yards and a score. He managed to hit John Brown on a 48 yard score on his third attempt. Stanton also had two rushing attempts from 3 yards.

If Palmer can't go, Stanton will likely start against Lions Week 11.
