Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has been impressed with Michael Floyd's conditioning in OTAs.
The Cardinals are beginning the process of building Floyd back up after word leaked he was available via trade. Standing in at 6-foot-3, Floyd shed some weight before his rookie year, but his conditioning has never been known to be an issue. Floyd knows 2015 is a critical year for his career. A motivated offseason would serve all parties well. May 19 - 1:50 PM

According to the Arizona Republic, the Cardinals will listen if a teams calls with interest in trading for WR Michael Floyd.

Interesting. Floyd is coming off a down year where he showed inconsistent hands as a pure field stretcher. A whopping 34 of his 94 targets were 20-plus yards downfield, and Floyd had a high 18.75 percent drop rate on such passes. Just last week the Cardinals were uncertain if they were going to pick up his 2016 fifth-year option. They decided to exercise it, but appear willing to deal the 25-year-old. The Cardinals are in love with John Brown and want to increase his role.
May 1 - 4:27 PM

The Cardinals have exercised their fifth-year option on WR Michael Floyd.

Floyd's option is guaranteed for injury only, and will be worth $7.3 million. After posting a 47/841/6 line last year, the Cardinals are expecting Floyd to improve with the return of Carson Palmer. Floyd has struggled with consistency throughout his first three seasons. The Cardinals could have trouble paying Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald a combined $23.1 million in 2016.

The Cardinals haven't decided if they want to pick up Michael Floyd's fifth-year option for 2016.

Floyd is coming off a meager 47-841-6 season and the option is worth $7.3 million. But that lack of production stemmed partly from the Cardinals' quarterback woes and partly from the boom-or-bust way that Floyd was used. The Cardinals must make a decision by May 3.
Apr 23 - 7:44 AM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says he wants to see more "consistency" from Michael Floyd in his fourth NFL season.

Arians called Floyd a "victim" of Arizona's 2014 revolving door at quarterback, but indicated the jury is still out on the 13th pick in the 2012 draft. "I think some frustration went into his play at times," said Arians. "But he still needs to hit a consistency level. He's a thousand-yard player every year. He should have had a thousand, easily, last year." The Cardinals must soon decide whether to exercise Floyd's 2016 option year. Floyd turned 25 late last November.

Michael Floyd caught one pass for nine yards in the Cardinals' Wild Card loss to the Panthers.

He was targeted two times on a day where the Cardinals totaled 77 yards on offense. Floyd did a nice job of tapping his toes on the sideline on his third-down catch. On his other target, Floyd was mugged by CB Josh Norman but somehow didn't draw the penalty. It was a deep shot down the left sideline. It was an extremely disappointing end to what was an up-and-down, underwhelming season from Floyd. He managed a 47-841-6 line in the regular season. With Larry Fitzgerald's contract status, Floyd could return as the Cardinals' clear-cut No. 1 receiver next season. He's a nice buy-low option in Dynasty. The ceiling is still extremely high for 25-year-old Floyd.
Jan 3 - 8:37 PM

Michael Floyd secured 8-of-12 targets for 153 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals' Week 17 loss to the 49ers.

Floyd finally showed what he's capable of when given a lot of passing-game volume. He's a true "No. 1" receiver; the Cardinals to this point just hadn't utilized him as one. Floyd made spectacular sideline catches in this one and repeatedly abused San Francisco's secondary. The Cardinals will need more of where this game from to have a shot at upsetting Carolina in the Wild Card round.

Michael Floyd caught two passes for 41 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to Seattle.

Floyd was a non-factor outside of a 32-yard catch in the third quarter. He was Ryan Lindley's No. 2 option, finishing with eight targets. Floyd is averaging 59 yards over his last four games and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 11.

Michael Floyd caught 2-of-3 targets for 55 yards in the Cardinals' Week 15 win over the Rams.

Floyd also drew a 36-yard defensive pass interference penalty. Floyd smoked Rams CB Janoris Jenkins on both the DPI and a 49-yard catch in the second quarter, but coach Bruce Arians mostly avoided deep shots with Drew Stanton and Ryan Lindley manning the quarterback position. Floyd now has just 13 catches in five games since Carson Palmer was lost for the season. It's a "wait till next year" campaign for Floyd in dynasty leagues.

Michael Floyd caught 4-of-7 targets for 85 yards Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Floyd hauled in a 45-yard bomb down the right sideline on the Cards' third-quarter scoring drive but was relatively quiet the rest of the way. The seven targets are promising, but Floyd's upside is capped by the quarterback situation in Arizona. He will be a WR4 with some upside against the Rams Week 15.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 07:28:00 PM

Michael Floyd caught five passes for 53 yards in Sunday's Week 13 loss at Atlanta.

Floyd encouragingly was involved from the opening snap and finished with a season-high 10 targets as Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was inactive. That would have been nice while Carson Palmer was healthy, but Drew Stanton is crippling this entire offense. Floyd remains a WR4 only heading into a Week 14 game against the Chiefs -- he hasn't gone over 54 yards since Week 3.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 07:58:00 PM

Speaking Monday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians conceded he "should have done a better job finding ways to get Michael Floyd open" in Sunday's loss.

Floyd was targeted twice in Seattle, catching zero passes. Truth be told, there probably wasn't much Arians could have done to get Floyd more looks against the Seahawks' elite secondary with Drew Stanton at quarterback, but it's encouraging he's at least acknowledged the fact that Floyd should be more involved. Arians had previously been ambivalent about increasing Floyd's targets. Regardless of Arians' intentions, Floyd has been reduced to boom-or-bust WR4 status with Stanton replacing Carson Palmer.

Michael Floyd did not catch a pass in Sunday's Week 12 loss at Seattle.

Floyd was officially targeted two times and had one 10-yard catch called back by penalty. It's a predictable result as the Seattle secondary eats up bigger wideouts and Drew Stanton had no shot going on the road to the league's most hostile environment. Floyd will be a WR3 stab in Week 13 -- only because the Cardinals face the Falcons and Larry Fitzgerald (knee) may not play again. But right now, John Brown looks like the more effective player and the one we'd want to start in that spot.

Michael Floyd caught 2-of-5 targets for 54 yards and two touchdowns in Arizona's Week 11 win over the Lions.

The scores were Floyd's first since Week 7, and capped off each of Arizona's first two drives. For the first, he pulled down a 42-yard jump ball in the end zone. For the second, he simply beat Darius Slay to the spot. It was a welcome explosion for frustrated fantasy owners, but a possible red herring, as Floyd went the final 36 minutes of the game without a catch. Floyd is an explosive playmaker, but he's going to remain a boom-or-bust WR3/4 going forward. He has a rough Week 12 matchup in the Seahawks on the road.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 07:30:00 PM

Michael Floyd caught just one pass for 11 yards in the Cardinals' Week 10 win over the Rams.

Floyd was targeted just four times. On his lone catch, he nearly got decapitated by Mark Barron. Floyd continues to be one of the biggest busts of the 2014 fantasy season. Rob Housler, Ted Ginn, Jaron Brown, and John Carlson all managed to post better receiving numbers on Sunday. Maybe Drew Stanton's insertion into the lineup for Carson Palmer (knee) can get Floyd going. But for now, he's merely a boom-or-bust WR3/4.
