Michael Floyd caught 1-of-6 targets for 19 yards in the Cardinals' Week 2 win over the Giants.
Floyd busted a 19-yard reception on Arizona's first play from scrimmage. Drew Stanton couldn't get him the football from there, as the other five Floyd targets all fell incomplete. Floyd is a much better bet with Carson Palmer under center due to Palmer's superior aggressiveness and downfield passing mentality. Floyd will be firing up as a WR2 when the Cards face the 49ers in Week 3. Sep 14 - 4:53 PM

ESPN New York expects Michael Floyd to be shadowed by Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie this week.

Floyd plays the outside in three-wide sets, so he'll draw Rodgers-Cromartie the majority of the game. Larry Fitzgerald will matchup up with Walter Thurmond in the slot, and Prince Amukamara in two-wide. It's not a downgrade to Floyd's matchup, but a sign that he's going to start drawing opposing team's No. 1 corners going forward. Floyd is Rotoworld's No. 9 overall wideout for Week 2.

Michael Floyd caught 5-of-7 targets for 119 yards in the Cardinals' Week 1 win over the Chargers on Monday night.

Floyd's big play of the night was a 63-yard reception behind Shareece Wright early on. He later reeled in a big catch on a third down late in the fourth quarter to help set up John Brown's game-winning 13-yard touchdown grab. A rising talent in an aggressive pass-first offense, Floyd has WR1 upside this season. Fire him up for next week's matchup against the Giants, who were torched by the Lions.
Sep 9 - 1:48 AM

Making his preseason debut, Michael Floyd had one catch for four yards in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Carson Palmer overthrew a wide-open Floyd twice on deep bombs, which we'd view as a good thing. If one of those balls had been completed, Floyd's already rising ADP would have gone through the roof. As an ascending talent in a pass-first scheme, he's a high-upside pick in the fourth or fifth round of fantasy drafts. Floyd was the star of the entire Cardinals offseason program.

NFL writer Dan Pompei reports that some people inside the Cardinals organization believe Michael Floyd is "in for a big year" and will be Arizona's No. 1 wide receiver this season.

Larry Fitzgerald will turn 31 later this month, and is clearly on the down side of his career. He's still going to rack up a ton of catches and touchdowns in Bruce Arians' pass-happy attack out of the slot, but the transition to Floyd began last season when the sophomore posted a 65-1,041-5 line and started all 16 games. Floyd's now a locked-in WR2. Fitzgerald has a $23.6 million cap number next season and may be entering his final year in the desert. Floyd and rookie John Brown may be the future at receiver in Arizona -- as soon as next season.

Michael Floyd (groin) is inactive for Saturday night's preseason game.

Ted Ginn (knee) has also been ruled out. It's a precautionary move from the Cardinals, as both are minor injuries. John Brown will start in two-wide sets.
Aug 9 - 7:24 PM

The Arizona Republic says Michael Floyd "understood where he was supposed to be and when to be there," and "caught nearly everything thrown his way" during OTAs and minicamp.

Top beat writer Kent Somers has literally sounded the fantasy alarm on Floyd. Coming off a 65-1041-5 season, the stars are aligning for a bigger year-three breakout. Aging Larry Fitzgerald has been reduced to an underneath, possession role while 24-year-old Floyd is ascending. The physically imposing 2012 first-round pick has been the unquestioned star of Cardinals offseason practices.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer had nothing but praise for Michael Floyd, saying his play "jumped out" during OTAs.

"I have very high expectations for Mike this year," Palmer said. Exceedingly complimentary comments can usually be dismissed this time of year, but the fact that these came unprompted is evidence this was Palmer's genuine reaction to Floyd's stellar practice play. Floyd looks poised to build on his breakout 2013 campaign and can be safely viewed as a high-upside WR2.
May 22 - 7:09 PM

According to the Arizona Republic, Michael Floyd was the "most impressive" player in Cardinals OTAs.

Per reporter Kent Somers, Floyd "caught everything," even doing work against Patrick Peterson. It would be concerning if a former first-round receiver didn't stand out in pad-less practices, but it certainly doesn't sound like Floyd is resting on the laurels of his breakout 2013. Floyd is a high-upside WR2.
May 20 - 4:51 PM

OC Harold Goodwin expects the addition of Ted Ginn to help Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald.

With Rob Housler and Andre Roberts functioning as secondary options in the passing game last season, deep speed was missing. Ginn brings the ability to threaten defenses over the top every time he's on the field. It projects to keep safeties occupied more often, therefore opening up the middle of the field for the physically imposing Floyd and Fitz to do damage. Still just 24 years old and coming off a 65-1041-5 season, Floyd is scratching the surface of his upside.
Apr 10 - 8:20 AM

Coach Bruce Arians said Michael Floyd made "great strides" in his second NFL season.

Despite playing through ankle and shoulder woes for much of the season, Floyd appeared in all 16 games and led the Cardinals in receiving yards (1,041), catches for 20+ yards (17) and yards per reception (16.0). The 24-year-old physical freak is capable of much more, especially under the guidance of passing-game savant Arians. "I think Michael is starting to reach his potential," Arians said. "He still needs to be more consistent each week. He played through injuries for the first time, which is a huge step for a young player."
Feb 24 - 8:24 AM

Michael Floyd caught six passes for 91 yards in Sunday's 23-20 Week 17 loss to the 49ers.

Floyd was a beast in traffic against a very physical defense, consistently winning at the catch point down the field. It caps a breakout second season that saw Floyd record 65 catches for 1,041 yards with five touchdowns. An impressive physical specimen in a wideout-friendly Bruce Arians offense, it's only the tip of the iceberg for the 2012 first-round pick. Floyd barely missed on a ton of touchdowns this year and Larry Fitzgerald is no lock to be back in Arizona next season. At just 24 years old, Floyd will be a serious WR2 candidate in 2014 fantasy drafts.

Michael Floyd caught one pass for 31 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 upset at Seattle.

Floyd was extremely quiet all game as he saw tons of Richard Sherman and lost. On most of his five targets, he was just trying to break up interceptions. He also had a touchdown called by back an offensive pass interference call. But with under three minutes left and the Cardinals down 10-9, Floyd found himself in 1-on-1 coverage with Byron Maxwell and Carson Palmer let a jump ball fly. Floyd batted the ball to himself as Maxwell held his arm and somehow came down with it for a game-winner. He has another tough matchup against the 49ers in Week 17.

Michael Floyd (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Floyd is ahead of where he was last week, where he failed to get in a full practice before suiting up against the Titans. He's going to be active for Week 16, but will be hard to trust as a WR3 at less than 100 percent against Seattle's elite secondary.

Michael Floyd (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Floyd has played through the ankle issue the past two weeks, and he's registered just four catches for 59 yards. He's a borderline WR3/4 this week at Seattle.
