2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Given his combination of size (6’3”, 225 pounds), speed and production in at Notre Dame, Floyd was considered the wide receiver prospect with the most upside coming out of this year’s draft. However, character concerns caused him to be drafted behind Justin Blackmon and he was selected 13th overall by the Cardinals. While Arizona’s plan is to eventually pair Floyd with Larry Fitzgerald giving the team a pair of big, talented wide receivers, it appears that plan will not take hold by opening day. While Floyd may have the most upside of any of the challengers to start opposite Fitzgerald, off-season reports indicate that he has struggled to learn the team’s playbook and is likely to enter the season behind Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts and Early Doucet on the depth chart. If that happens, Floyd will be worth monitoring on the waiver wire in redraft formats. In dynasty leagues, Floyd is an outstanding prospect whose only issues would be playing alongside a top five receiver in Fitzgerald and the team’s issues at quarterback.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Michael Floyd will play     -- Sun Nov 27 11:00 am --

Hamstring injury

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.
J.J. Nelson now a starter in Arizona     -- Mon Oct 31 5:40 pm --

Moves past Michael Floyd after two-score game in Week 8
J.J. Nelson had a whale of a game for a backup on Sunday against the Panthers. So good, in fact, he’s now a starter. The second-year wideout hauled in eight catches for 79 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the 30-20 loss to the Panthers, showing his talent as an intermediate receiver rather than just a deep threat. Nelson saw a lot of time because of hamstring injuries to John Brown and Michael Floyd, but coach Bruce Arians didn’t want him referred to as a fill-in. “J.J. didn’t step in,” Arians said. “That’s his job right now, and somebody is going to have to take it back from him.” (azcardinals,com)

FF Today's Take: It's hard to believe the 5-10, 160-pound Nelson has supplanted the 6-2, 220-pound Floyd, but the latter just has never done enough consistently and always seems to be battling injuries. Nelson is one of the fastest players in the NFL and has drawn 19 targets over the last two weeks, and he's probably the second-best receiver in Arizona at the moment with Brown fighting his own health issues. Much like a young DeSean Jackson, Nelson figures to be a boom/bust WR3 going forward.
Injury Michael Floyd "uphill battle" to play     -- Sun Oct 30 8:15 am --

John Brown expected to be active

FF Today's Take: Floyd has been battling a hamstring injury and didn't practice much this week. The Cardinals play early so we'll know his status an hour and a half before kickoff. Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown and J.J. Nelson should make up the Cardinals receiving corps against the Panthers.
Injury Michael Floyd in concussion protocol     -- Mon Sep 26 5:10 pm --

Cleared to return Sunday but experienced headache Monday

FF Today's Take: The Cardinals had a bad day in Week 3 and this is only makes it worse, although Floyd has long been unable to avoid the injury bug. John Brown, who has been dealing with his own concussion issues, enjoyed easily his best game of the season versus the Buffalo Bills and could be in line for more targets should Floyd miss time. Jaron Brown would stand to benefit as well, although Floyd's absence would likely lead to a heavier dose of targets for Larry Fitzgerald.
