|Given his combination of size (6í3Ē, 225 pounds), speed and production in at Notre Dame, Floyd was considered the wide receiver prospect with the most upside coming out of this yearís draft. However, character concerns caused him to be drafted behind Justin Blackmon and he was selected 13th overall by the Cardinals. While Arizonaís 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 teamís 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 teamís issues at quarterback.

FF Today's Take: Floyd's absence Sunday would make teammates Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown a little more valuable. Owners of the Cardinals' WRs would be wise to keep an eye on injury updates leading up to kickoff Sunday.

Three dislocated fingers in left hand
|Starting receiver Michael Floyd suffered a left hand injury early in practice and will be out several weeks, according to a source. Both the NFL Network and CBSsports.com reported that Floyd suffered three broken fingers and will miss around six weeks. That makes it doubtful he could play in the season opener against the Saints on Sept. 13. An NFL source told azcentral.com the injury wasnít as severe as the Cardinals first feared and that Floyd could be out just three to five weeks. (Arizona Republic)|
FF Today's Take: Floyd was scheduled to start opposite Larry Fitzgerald but his role could be filled by John Brown early in the season. The injury puts a dent in Floyd's fantasy value as he looks to rebound from a ho-hum showing in 2014 that included six touchdowns but only 47 catches. His ADP will take a hit which could make him a nice value play in the later rounds of your draft.
