Michael Floyd (calf) is questionable for Week 8 against the Browns.
Floyd got in a round of limited practices. His status is much more up in the air than Stefon Diggs' (groin), who practiced in full this week and is questionable. With Diggs likely back, Floyd isn't fantasy-relevant anyway. Oct 27 - 9:58 AM

Date:

Michael Floyd (calf) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

He sat out last week's game with a calf injury but should be ready to roll against the Browns in Week 8. Floyd has been a non-factor since returning from suspension, catching just two-of-four targets for 24 yards in two games.
Oct 25 - 4:27 PM

Michael Floyd (calf) is questionable for Week 7 against the Ravens.

Floyd returned to a limited practice on Friday and expects to be in the lineup for Sunday's home game against the Ravens. Even with Stefon Diggs (groin) sidelined, Floyd won't be on the fantasy radar for Week 7.
Oct 20 - 2:19 PM

Michael Floyd (calf) remained sidelined Thursday.

It looks like Floyd is going to miss Week 7. With Stefon Diggs (groin) highly questionable, the Vikes could be severely shorthanded at wideout.
Oct 19 - 3:48 PM

Michael Floyd (calf) is not practicing Wednesday.

Floyd exited the Week 6 win over the Packers early and was replaced by Laquon Treadwell as the No. 2 receiver with Stefon Diggs (groin) out.
Oct 18 - 2:24 PM

Michael Floyd played 38-of-77 snaps in Week 6, catching 1-of-3 targets for five yards.

It's essentially what Floyd did in his Week 5 return. It's disappointing since Stefon Diggs was sidelined with a groin injury. Floyd was out-snapped and out-targeted by Laquon Treadwell, though a tweaked calf likely played a part. Either way, 2017 fantasy value for Floyd isn't looking terribly likely.
Oct 17 - 2:22 PM

Michael Floyd caught his lone target for 19 yards in the Vikings' Week 5 win over the Bears.

Floyd played 32 snaps to Laquon Treadwell's 41 as the No. 3 receiver, but Floyd saw the lone target between the two. He got away with a clear push-off on the catch. Expect Floyd to push past nonexistent Treadwell as he knocks the rust off from his four-game ban to open the year. With Stefon Diggs hurting his groin Monday, Floyd could have some Week 6 value vs. Green Bay.
Oct 10 - 12:27 AM

Vikings WR Michael Floyd has completed his four-game suspension.

With Laquon Treadwell not doing much the first month of the season, it is possible Floyd emerges as the No. 3 receiver behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, but that role is unlikely to return much if any fantasy value.
Oct 2 - 9:16 AM

Suspended WR Michael Floyd has been playing with the "Vikings’ top three-receiver package" and has made "several impressive sideline catches" in training camp.

Coach Mike Zimmer showed his support, saying "[Floyd looked] pretty dang good." Floyd is suspended four games, but he has a chance to make an impact after that in three-receiver sets. After showing potential in Arizona, Floyd's career has been spiraling downward. This suspension may have served as a wake-up call for the talented 27-year-old underachiever.
Aug 5 - 10:55 AM

NFL suspended Vikings WR Michael Floyd four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Floyd was arrested for DUI in December and tested positive for alcohol during his house arrest, violating the terms of his sentence. He claimed the positive test was triggered by Kombucha tea, an excuse met with plenty of skepticism. Floyd was awful last year, hauling in just 33-of-71 targets over 13 games for New England and Arizona. Already on thin ice with his new team, Floyd's four-game ban gives the Vikings a ready-made excuse to move on from the troubled 27-year-old.
Jul 14 - 4:15 PM

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer has informed Michael Floyd he will be released if the team determines he was lying about his Kombucha tea defense in his drinking case.

Sentenced to house arrest in his DUI case, Floyd promptly failed three "self-administered Breathalyzer tests" last month. He insisted the failure was the result of consuming too much Kombucha tea. It's a dubious defense, to put it mildly, but the matter has already been settled in the courts. Unless he fails another test, Floyd is probably home free with Zimmer and the Vikings.
Jul 13 - 4:51 PM

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune expects Michael Floyd to make the Vikings' 53-man roster.

GM Rick Spielman issued Floyd a statement of support on Monday, and beat writer Matt Vensel correctly surmises the Vikings wouldn't be going to all this trouble if they didn't expect Floyd to be on their Week 1 roster. It's also safe to assume that Floyd is out of second chances, and will be cut at the next hint of trouble.
Jun 27 - 1:57 PM

Vikings GM Rick Spielman said the organization "believes" in Michael Floyd, and he will remain on the club's roster and report for training camp.

Floyd boneheadedly consumed alcohol just days before his house arrest sentence was set to expire earlier this month, and he was sentenced to one day in jail in Arizona on Monday. He got off extremely light and will keep his job at the same time. Floyd won't be guaranteed to make the final 53-man roster out of camp and is certainly facing a league-mandated suspension from Roger Goodell.
Jun 26 - 7:05 PM

Vikings WR Michael Floyd has been sentenced to one day in jail for violating the terms of his house arrest.

Floyd, who isn't allowed to drink alcohol as part of his house arrest arrangement, allegedly failed five different tests. He absurdly blamed the failures on Kombucha tea. The judge wasn't having it. Floyd is lucky to escape with only a day in jail. It's unclear how safe his Vikings' roster spot is. Floyd was signed just 47 days ago.
Jun 26 - 4:44 PM

Michael Floyd's agent confirmed a TMZ report that he tested positive for alcohol earlier this week.

Floyd failed multiple BAC tests after allegedly drinking Kombucha teas. He was only five days away from completing his home arrest, but could now be headed back to jail. Floyd's next step is to appear in court on June 26 to explain the situation. Regardless of the outcome, his Vikings future is in jeopardy.
