Week 17 Outlook
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.
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.
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.
Michael Floyd INACTIVE for Super Bowl LI
New England Patriots wide receiver Michael Floyd is a healthy scratch for Super Bowl LI.

Michael Floyd INACTIVE for AFC Championship

Michael Floyd catches one pass in win over Texans
Michael Floyd made one catch on three targets for nine yards in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Texans.
Floyd was not a big part of the offense on Saturday night. He did get on the field for more snaps later in the game with Chris Hogan left with an injury but did see many passes thrown his way. With Malcolm Mitchell out with an injury and Hogan potentially hurt, Floyd could move up to a WR2 going into the AFC championship game. Keep an eye on updates on the statuses of the wide receivers.
