Michael Floyd caught only one pass for 7 yards in Arizona's Week 5 matchup against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Impact: After a hot start to the season, Floyd has cooled off. So far this season he has either been explosive, producing 100 yard games, or invisible, catching only one pass. Floyd's inconsistency is maddening, but he's still worth sticking with as a WR2 or WR3 in deep leagues due to his big play threat. His stock will dramatically increase if Carson Palmer (shoulder) returns to action in Week 6, but will drastically fall if both Palmer and Drew Stanton (concussion) are unable to play, leaving him to catch passes from rookie Logan Thomas.

Fantasy Impact: This weeks practices seemed to do wonders for the chemistry between Floyd and QB Drew Stanton. Floyd was targeted 9 times overall in the game Sunday. It's fairly obvious that Floyd is the Cardinals' best receiving threat and this performance bodes well for the near future if Drew Stanton is forced to start at QB for Arizona again.

Fantasy Impact: Michael Floyd, who was targeted 6 times, struggled to get on the same page as backup QB Drew Stanton. Without Carson Palmer in the lineup, Floyd may see some rough days ahead. The one piece of good news is that Stanton looked deep for Floyd on a few passes but Floyd couldn't bring them down. If Palmer isn't able to go again in week 3, hopefully the week of work for Stanton with the first-team offense will help the chemistry between the two.

Fantasy Impact: There was a lot of hype surrounding Floyd this offseason and he did not disappoint in week 1. Floyd led the Cardinals in receiving yard (119), targets (7) and tied for the lead in receptions (5). Half way through the first quarter, Floyd broke free of his defender and connected with Carson Palmer for a 63 yard reception. Floyd has established himself as the #1 WR in this offense. Look for another solid game from Floyd in week 2 as the Cardinals travel to New York to play a Giants defense that was just shredded through the air for 346 yards by the Lions.

According to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN, Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd sat out Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings with a groin injury. (Source: ESPN)

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.

Floyd should be ready for a big fantasy game this week. I expect QB Carson Palmer to be sharper with a week under his belt and the Raiders are a mere 22nd against fantasy receivers over the last 3 weeks.
