Michael Floyd caught 2-of-2 targets for 22 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 6 win over the Jets.
Floyd was running as the No. 5 receiver much of the first half, but coach Bruce Arians gave him the "starting" nod coming out of halftime, working him in two-wide sets with Larry Fitzgerald. The Cardinals clearly want to get Floyd going, and he was able to secure a one-handed catch for a nine-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Floyd is still highly volatile as a fantasy asset, but with Jaron Brown's (knee) potential injury, he could come back into favor as the No. 3. Floyd won't be a recommended play next week against Seattle. Oct 17 - 11:59 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians thinks Michael Floyd is "pressing" in a contract year.

"He’s trying to make too many things," Arians said. "Pressing too much right now." Floyd has been one of the least effective receivers in the league and lost his starting role to John Brown. He's seen just 58 snaps and has 10 targets over the last two weeks. Even with Carson Palmer (concussion) expected to return, Floyd can't be trusted in Week 6 against the Jets.
Oct 7 - 7:00 PM

Michael Floyd caught 0-of-3 targets in Arizona's Week 5 win over the 49ers.

One of Floyd's missed connections came with the game out of reach late. It's hard to be harsh since fill-in QB Drew Stanton had only 11 completions all evening, but Floyd now has just 12 catches through five games, and has fallen behind John Brown on the depth chart. He's playing passive football after looking like an alpha WR1 in 2015. Perhaps he's grown tentative since suffering a concussion last month, but something isn't right. Floyd won't be a viable WR3 against the Jets' burnable secondary in Week 6.
Oct 7 - 12:01 AM

Michael Floyd gathered three catches for 36 yards and a touchdown on seven targets Sunday in the Cardinals' Week 4 loss to the Rams.

As fantasy owners have to come to expect by now, you have to take the good and the bad with Floyd. He continued his drop parade from the week before with two more miscues but salvaged the day with a five-yard touchdown on a beautifully thrown ball (one of only a few) by Carson Palmer late in the first half. He shielded himself from Rams corner Troy Hill and did a nice job to keep both of his feet in bounds. It’s hard to trust Floyd with all the drops but he’ll still be a WR3 consideration next week in a favorable matchup against the Niners.
Oct 2 - 8:59 PM

Michael Floyd (concussion) has been removed from the Cardinals' injury report.

Floyd was cleared after practicing fully the last two days. He'll be a low-end WR3 against a Rams secondary that can take away the outside. Floyd has caught just nine of his 24 targets this season.
Sep 30 - 5:16 PM

Michael Floyd (concussion) returned to Cardinals practice Thursday, getting in a "full" session.

Floyd was looking dicey for Sunday's game against the Rams after he reported a concussion on Monday, but he's suddenly on track to start. Off to a slow start as Larry Fitzgerald dominates targets, Floyd will be a low-end WR3 against the Rams. His quick recovery knocks John Brown from the WR3 fringes.
Sep 29 - 5:29 PM

Michael Floyd (concussion) has been cleared for football activity.

Floyd practiced in a non-contact jersey Wednesday. He's still in the concussion protocol, but will be reevaluated on Thursday. The Cardinals are "optimistic" on Floyd's Week 4 status.
Sep 28 - 5:14 PM

Michael Floyd is in the league's concussion protocol.

Floyd was evaluated and cleared on Sunday, but had a headache on Monday. It's bad news for a player off to a slow start. Floyd's status will be updated no later than Wednesday, when the Cardinals issue their first Week 4 injury report. An absence against the Rams would create a big opening for John Brown, who is off to a shaky start after concussion issues of his own.
Sep 26 - 3:19 PM

Michael Floyd caught 4-of-11 targets for 65 yards in the Cardinals' Week 3 loss to the Bills.

The Cardinals tried numerous deep shots to Floyd early in the game, but connected on none of them and wound up trying to nickel and dime Buffalo's defense underneath, which didn't work. Floyd scored a touchdown in Week 2 and has gone over 60 yards in his other two games, but he has been a disappointment in fantasy early in the season. He'll get a tougher draw in Week 4 when the Cardinals take on a Rams defense that suffocates perimeter wideouts.
Sep 25 - 5:00 PM

Michael Floyd caught 2-of-6 targets for eight yards and a touchdown in Arizona's Week 2 win over the Bucs.

Floyd seems to have left John Brown in the dust, but the problem is that Larry Fitzgerald has left both in the dust, drawing 21 targets in two games. Floyd has 15. Floyd's WR2/3 numbers should be there, but he seems poised to remain frustratingly boom or bust after flashing takeover potential in the second half last season. Floyd will be a WR2 against the Bills' scorched-earth secondary in Week 3.
Sep 18 - 7:39 PM

Michael Floyd corralled three-of-seven targets for 60 yards Sunday in the Cardinals' Week 1 loss to the Patriots.

Floyd beat Malcolm Butler for a masterful 39-yard catch in the opening quarter but that was his only true highlight. He was targeted in the end zone twice in a row during the fourth quarter but came up empty both times. Dating back to last season, Floyd has now seen at least seven targets in seven of his last eight games. He should have an easier assignment against Tampa Bay in Week 2.
Sep 12 - 1:17 AM

Michael Floyd caught his lone target for ten yards in the Cardinals' third preseason game.

With John Brown (concussion) and Larry Fitzgerald (knee) on the shelf, Arizona's three-receiver set was made up of Floyd, Jaron Brown, and J.J. Nelson against the Texans. Floyd's time on the field was brief, along with Carson Palmer's. Floyd should be pressing for a career year in his contract season.
Aug 28 - 5:29 PM

Cardinals GM Steve Keim said he’ll "look at addressing" an extension for contract-year WR Michael Floyd.

"Mike has made tremendous strides, not only from a skill-set but from a maturity standpoint," Keim said. "I think he took it to another level." Floyd came on down the stretch last year, posting 100-plus yards in three of his last five games. The sides could open talks closer to OTAs.
Feb 24 - 7:21 PM

Michael Floyd secured 3-of-8 targets for 37 yards in the Cardinals' NFC Championship loss to the Panthers.

Josh Norman shadowed Floyd whenever he lined up outside. Floyd didn't catch a pass until the fourth quarter, before tacking on a few garbage-time receptions. Floyd's 2015 was still largely a success, finishing at 52-849-6 receiving despite battling multiple injuries. Floyd turned 26 in November. Owed a $7.3 million base salary, Floyd will enter his contract year in 2016.
Jan 24 - 10:19 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians believes Michael Floyd would have had a 1,500-yard season had he not severely dislocated three fingers in training camp.

"He was having a great camp," Arians said. "And he's having a hell of a season, especially the second half." Arians' comments are a reminder of how much the Cardinals value the 26-year-old wideout, and supported by the fact that Floyd went nuts down the stretch, clearing 100 yards in 5-of-6 healthy games.
