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.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Top 10 WR once fully healed in '13, poor defense will force tons of air time in '14.
The transition of WR1 from Fitz to Floyd has already begun.
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
 
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.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
We’re giving the 2013 version of Roddy White a Mulligan. The second half of the season a healthy Roddy White finished off his last 5 games averaging 8.6 catches for 100.4 yards. Although there’s now a Three Wide Receiver Set and a healthy WR1 Julio Jones and WR3 Harry Douglas, we still believe Roddy White can put up true WR2 numbers in a team that will face many shootouts due to a poor 2014 Atlanta Defense.
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!”

Rebounded late in '13, and opened '14 without missing a beat (5/72/1)

Very underrated this year. WR1 you can grab in round 4.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Numbers apt to rebound after an injury-marred 2013.
Coming on strong. His physical tool kit is impressive.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
White played hurt for much of last season and without Julio Jones on the other side. This should be a bounceback year for the veteran in an offense that will throw the ball a whole bunch this year.
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.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Will likely push for WR1 numbers this season
This WR2 is ready to put the fantasy world on notice
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Simply could not stay healthy last year. Hopefully his ankle woes are behind him and he can return to dominance.
Could move up from stable WR3 to elite WR2. Appears to be developing a better rapport with Carson Palmer.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He is continuing to decline in his upside and should be good for nearly 1,000 yards and 5 TDs.
Carson Palmer has no hesitation to throwing to Floyd who never sees double coverage. Solid pick in PPR leagues.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
White should benefit from not having to play the entire season without a high ankle sprain, but I think he is on the downside of his NFL career. I view him as a very ordinary WR3 to WR4 option that is unlikely to produce the big numbers he did earlier in his career.
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.
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
There’s some optimism that White, 32, can regain most of his form and be a strong contributor to a Falcons offense that desperately needs him considering the retirement of Tony Gonzalez. In fact he might end up being a very good draft value as a No.2 or No.3 receiver considering the amount of targets he is very likely to pick up. White has a TON of upside and potential if he can get back to that elite level of play. At one point from 2007 thru 2012, White was Mr.Consistency, producing 1,150-plus yards in each of those 6 seasons while racking up at least 80 receptions per season as well, along with 7-plus touchdowns in 5 of those 6 seasons
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.
