Michael Floyd caught 1-of-3 targets for nine yards in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Texans.
Floyd started in three-receiver sets with Malcolm Mitchell (knee) inactive, but we wouldn't be surprised to see Mitchell back in there next week. Floyd's first target bounced off his hands and to Texans CB A.J. Bouye, while a third-quarter Floyd drop nearly got Tom Brady intercepted again. Floyd was also flagged for offensive pass interference midway through the third quarter. Albeit long on talent, Floyd is nothing if not inconsistent. Jan 14 - 11:53 PM

Michael Floyd caught 3-of-4 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 17 win over the Dolphins.

Floyd's biggest box-score impact came on a 14-yard touchdown catch. His biggest on-field impact came on a vicious open-field block that sprung Julian Edelman for a 77-yard touchdown. Floyd has always been one of the NFL's top blocking wideouts. He will be a key role player during New England's playoff run.

Impending free agent WR Michael Floyd could face 180 days in jail if he is convicted on DUI charges.

Floyd reportedly blew a .217 when he was arrested for DUI in mid-December. That qualifies as a "super extreme" violation in Arizona, which carries a 45-day jail sentence for a first offense and a 180-day sentence for a second offense. Floyd has had alcohol-related issues with the law in the past, so it is possible the courts rule this a second offense. Floyd's first hearing is February 24, which is just over a week before free agency begins.

Michael Floyd is expected to be one of the Patriots' top-three wide receivers in Sunday's Week 17 game at Miami.

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is not expected to play, Julian Edelman's snaps have been in weekly descent as he's being limited ahead of the postseason, and the Patriots are expected to "monitor" Martellus Bennett's playing time against the Dolphins. Albeit with lots of risk, Floyd is suddenly worthy of dart-throw consideration in DFS and especially deep leagues that extend into Week 17. The Dolphins will be without top CB Byron Maxwell (ankle) on Sunday.

Michael Floyd played 18-of-75 offensive snaps in his Patriots' debut Saturday against the Jets.

He was on the field for 24 percent of the Patriots' plays. He was out-snapped by fellow wide receivers Chris Hogan (64 snaps), Malcolm Mitchell (58) and Julian Edelman (36). All but two of Floyd's snaps came in the second half with the game well in hand. Floyd's role should increase as he becomes more familiar with the Patriots' offense, but he's still a distant fourth on the depth chart behind Edelman, Mitchell and Hogan.

Michael Floyd corralled one-of-two targets for six yards Saturday in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Jets.

Floyd drew an end zone target early in the game but couldn’t reel it in. He wasn’t heard from again until the fourth quarter when he hauled in a six-yarder from backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Still new to New England’s system, it’s unlikely that Floyd will carve any kind of meaningful role this season. Floyd and the Patriots will close out the regular season next week against Miami.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Michael Floyd will be active Week 16 against the Jets.

Schefter reports he will likely play a limited role, which makes sense considering he was claimed off waivers barely more than a week ago. Floyd does not carry any fantasy value, and he does not affect the value of Julian Edelman, Malcolm Mitchell, or even Chris Hogan.

Bill Belichick said the team was not aware of Michael Floyd's blood alcohol concentration when they claimed him off waivers last week.

Floyd BAC was reportedly .217 when he was arrested for DUI last week. Arizona has different DUI classifications, and Floyd's BAC falls into the "super extreme" category. That charge comes with a minimum of 45 days in jail. The Patriots might be upset Floyd was not more forthcoming about what he is facing, but there are no indications they plan to cut him at this point. Floyd is a free agent after this season.

Michael Floyd's blood alcohol concentration was .217 when he was arrested for DUI last week.

Arizona is one of few states that has different DUI classifications, including regular DUI, "extreme" DUI, and "super extreme" DUI. If one's BAC is above .200, that's considered a "super extreme" DUI, and Floyd falls in that category. Arizona is already known to be the toughest state on DUIs, and "super extreme" DUIs come with a minimum of a mandatory 45 days in jail.

Tom Brady said Michael Floyd "seems really focused and he wants to get out there and contribute."

Claimed off waivers Thursday after being cut by the Cardinals following a DUI arrest, Floyd faces a steep climb to learn the Patriots' complicated offense, but Brady thinks he will "work really hard at it." Even so, Floyd is not going to contribute to any fantasy teams this year. He can be cut in all redraft leagues.

Patriots declared WR Michael Floyd, WR Danny Amendola, CB Cyrus Jones, DL Woodrow Hamilton, RB D.J. Foster, OT LaAdrian Waddle and S Jordan Richards inactive for Week 15 against the Broncos.

Floyd should be active in Week 16, but won't be ready for a full complement of snaps in the Patriots' complex offense. Floyd is mostly off the fantasy radar in his new home.

Michael Floyd will not be active Sunday for Week 15 against the Broncos.

Floyd was claimed off waivers from Arizona on Thursday and is still learning the Patriots' playbook. He's tentatively expected to make his New England debut at home against the Jets on Christmas Eve. Receivers have often had a tough time grasping the complexities of Bill Belichick's offense. Because of that, it's doubtful that Floyd will have any kind of meaningful impact during the regular season. He's not a fantasy option at this point.

Michael Floyd will travel with the Patriots for Week 15 at the Broncos, but it's unclear if he'll be active.

Floyd isn't a fantasy option no matter what happens this week. New England is just taking a look-see at Floyd for the rest of the season to maybe get a head-start on potentially signing him for 2017. He faces an uphill battle in trying to learn a complicated playbook. Floyd is unlikely to be much of a factor.

Patriots claimed WR Michael Floyd off waivers from the Cardinals.

It means at least 30 teams passed on Floyd on waivers, as Dallas and New England have the final two claims. There's no questioning Floyd's talent, but his attitude and decision-making got him cast out of the desert. Floyd is just three days removed from getting arrested for drunk driving. He was also struggling mightily on the field, pulling a complete 180 from an impressive 2015. If Floyd is motivated, he's a potentially massive addition to a team missing Rob Gronkowski, but the receiver corps is crowded. Floyd isn't on the Week 15 fantasy radar. Floyd will be a free agent in March.

Cardinals waived WR Michael Floyd.

Props to the Cardinals for taking a stand after Floyd was popped for DUI on Monday, but there's no way they would have done this had they not been 5-7-1 and out of the playoff picture. Floyd is scheduled to be a free agent in March, and the Cardinals didn't seem interested in re-signing him after a terrible contract year. J.J. Nelson is going to find himself playing 90-plus percent of the snaps this week against the Saints. He's a must-add in all formats in a good spot.
