Fantasy Impact: Not much is known as of right now about this groin injury, but it doesn't seem to be serious. Floyd has put in a great offseason of work and the coaching staff in Arizona has stated they have big plans for him this season. I wouldn't worry too much about this injury as of right now. Target Floyd as a low-end WR2 with the idea of acquiring him as your WR3.

Sports On Earth writer Dan Pompei believes that Cards WR Michael Floyd is "in for a big year" and that "some people in camp believe he's their No. 1 WR." (Source: Dan Pompei on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is high praise for the 24-year-old Floyd who recorded more receiving yards (1,041) than Cardinals all-time great Larry Fitzgerald (954) in 2013. Michael Floyd is a good-bet to post solid high-end WR2 numbers this season in Bruce Arians' offense. Floyd also recorded 5 TD's last year and finished 2013 as the 25th best WR in PPR leagues. He is currently going in the middle of the 5th round in re-draft leagues.

Carson Palmer praised Michael Floyd's ability to use his size and speed to overpower CBs. In Tuesday practice, Floyd scored twice, once over 6'1" CB Patrick Peterson and another over 6'0" CB Justin Bethel. (Source: ESPN.com)

Fantasy Impact: Floyd plays bigger than his 6'2" 220 lbs and looks to improve upon his breakout 2013 season when he had over 1000 yds receiving. Floyd has WR1 upside in Bruce Arian's pass happy offense and is quickly losing his sleeper status. His current ADP sits at 64.0/WR21.

The New York Times | Aug 27th
The transition of WR1 from Fitz to Floyd has already begun.
Breaking Football | Aug 27th
Could move up from stable WR3 to elite WR2. Appears to be developing a better rapport with Carson Palmer.
The Football Girl | Aug 27th
Coming on strong. His physical tool kit is impressive.
The Fake Football | Aug 26th
Floyd was step for step with Fitz in fantasy points last season and could easily be right there with him again this year. This tier of wide receivers is extremely difficult to rank and I would feel fine getting Floyd earlier than this. He is a superstar waiting to happen.
Fantasy Football Empire | Aug 25th
Floyd is now in his 3rd season and has impressed in OTAs. His 1,041 yards led the team as did his 16 yard average on 65 receptions. His routes are more fluid, and he runs and catches the football effortlessly. This is the year to draft Michael Floyd over Larry Fitzgerald in fantasy football league drafts.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 25th
Carson Palmer has no hesitation to throwing to Floyd who never sees double coverage. Solid pick in PPR leagues.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 25th
I love Floyd's upside, but similar to Fitzgerald, he really needs a quarterback that can take advantage of his skill set, which is big plays down field.
FFLockerRoom | Aug 25th
Floyd has the chance to be a third-year breakout receiver this season. Floyd did well in 2013 with 65 catches for 1,041 yards and five touchdowns, and he posted 9 games with at least 8 standard Fantasy points, including 4 games with double digits. Floyd continue to grasp Arians’ system, and the passing game was at its best toward the end of the year, including Floyd scoring 9 or more standard Fantasy points in 5 of his final 8 games.
Legion Report | Aug 25th
Sound the Fantasy Alarms on Michael Floyd! The Arizona Republic said the former Notre Dame WR “understood where he was supposed to be and when to be there,” and “is catching everything thrown his way.” The 3rd year WR is coming off a 1000+ yard season where he caught 66 balls. Expect Michael Floyd to have low end WR1/ high end WR2 type numbers this season. For years, fantasy owners have been drafting Larry Fitzgerald as the best option in Arizona. It’s time to take your eyes off the “old bull” and open them to the “young calf!”
Fantasy Football Starters | Aug 23rd
Top 10 capable, yes, even with Fitz still in AZ. Don't draft Floyd at that value, though. The value is in his ADP, which is way below where we have him ranked here.

This WR2 is ready to put the fantasy world on notice

  Michael Floyd is Flying Under the Radar, Somehow How is Michael Floyd not being hyped up more as one of the best sleepers to own in both redraft and dynasty leagues?  He was the 13th overall pick in the 2012 draft (could have been higher had it not been for his DUI), had a nice […]
