Michael Floyd signs with Vikings

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Minnesota Vikings and free agent wide receiver Michael Floyd have agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth "roughly" $1.5 million with incentives "up to" $6 million on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Floyd signed a one-year deal with the Vikings Wednesday. The 27-year-old wideout will look to rejuvenate his stalled career after running into personal off the field issues in 2016, that ultimately led to his release from Arizona. In 15 games with the Cardinals and Patriots, Floyd produced career low numbers in receptions (37) and yards receiving (488), but still managed to score five touchdowns. He could easily enter the 2017 season as Minnesota's No. 3 receiver with a strong training camp and preseason as Laquon Treadwell is not a lock for the spot.

Michael Floyd could be signed within a week

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting free agent wide receiver Michael Floyd "hopes to have a deal by the end of next week."

Fantasy Impact

Per Schefter, Floyd is "talking" with the Vikings and other unnamed teams around the league. The 27-year-old wideout, who finished the 2016 season with the Patriots following his release from the Cardinals with whom he spent the first five years of his career, could make a difference on a roster that needs help at wide receiver. However, if he lands with a club with a deep and established corps -- like the Patriots -- he'll likely be buried on the depth chart once again as he was in New England. Floyd's fantasy value will remain up in the air until he finds a suitor for 2017.

Michael Floyd could depart from Patriots this offseason

ESPN's Mike Reiss believes the New England Patriots will not get into a bidding war with another club to retain free agent wide receiver Michael Floyd this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

In other words, if another team swoops in and offers Floyd a contract too rich for New England's blood, they are unlikely to "get into a competitive situation to retain him," per Reiss. Floyd, who signed with the team in December after the Cardinals released him, didn't wow anyone with his performance in his first two games with the club. He caught four targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Weeks 16 and 17. Expect Floyd's tenure with the Patriots to end this offseason. The 27-year-old wideout will, however, have a solid market in free agency despite his recent off the field issues.

Michael Floyd pleads guilty to DUI and gets sentenced

Michael Floyd pleaded guilty to extreme DUI and began serving a 24-day sentence at Maricopa County Jail on Thursday, FOX 10 Phoenix reports. Floyd was charged with seven counts, including extreme DUI and failure to obey a police officer after he was found passed out behind the wheel of his car at a Scottsdale, Arizona intersection in December.

Fantasy Impact

Floyd will also face discipline from the NFL. It could be a suspension. The WR is also going to be an unrestricted free agent. The uncertainty of his suspension and where he is playing next season puts a damper of his fantasy prospects. Owners should wait and see how the offseason plays out.
