FF Today's Take: It was a longshot for Palmer to retire, especially after Larry Fitzgerald announced last week that he would be back in 2017. Palmer's salary ($15.5 million) becomes guaranteed on Friday. The Cardinals offense struggled in 2016 thanks to offensive line woes and poor play from WR Michael Floyd. Palmer finished 13th among fantasy quarterback in FPts per game.

A healthy scratch, other areas of need
|Barring an unexpected change, I'm told Patriots wide receiver Michael Floyd will be inactive for Super Bowl LI as the team doesn't have the luxury to carry five players at the position on the 46-man game-day roster. It needs the spots for other areas, such as special teams and goal-line situations. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The Patriots will roll with Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and Malcolm Mitchell at the wide receiver position.

Pats WR listed as questionable

FF Today's Take: Mitchell's knee injury will likely land him on the inactive list. Expect Michael Floyd and Danny Amendola to be active and fill the secondary receiver roles for the Patriots. Neither will be viable fantasy options.

Not expected to play against Miami
|Rookie wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell is doubtful after both players missed practice Friday. (NESN)|
FF Today's Take: Mitchell missed practice Friday with a knee injury and while likely be inactive on Sunday. With his absence, expect Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Michael Floyd to be the top three wideouts for Tom Brady. Hogan is worthy of Flex consideration.

Did travel with the team
|New England WR Michael Floyd will not be active today vs. Denver, per source; his Patriots debut will have to wait. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: The newest New England Patriot wide receiver did travel with the team but will not be active against the Broncos. Even if he plays in Week 16 against the Jets he will be hard to trust as his snaps will likely be limited.

Pats take flier on former Cardinal
|Source: the Patriots have claimed WR Michael Floyd off of waivers. (Field Yates on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Floyd is coming off a DUI arrest and release from the Cardinals. His play on the field has been questionable at best this season and its difficult to see him making a big impact for the Patriots especially over the next two weeks.

Floyd was found unconscious behind the wheel of his running vehicle at a Scottsdale intersection early Monday morning, police said. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Floyd has flopped this season and has lost playing to Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson throughout the season. J.J. Nelson should see increased playing time although with Cardinals focusing on David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald and TE Jermaine Gresham in the passing, Nelson is likely to be overvalued in Week 15.

|Cardinals WR Michael Floyd is playing today. He just told me. (Britt McHenry on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Floyd has been dealing with a hamstring injury but after going through pre-game warmups declared himself a go. His matchup is a great one playing against a Falcons defense minus DB Desmond Trufant that's given up the 7th-most fantasy points to wide receivers.
