|Draft: 2012 Round 1 (13)
College: Notre Dame
Ht: 6’3” Wt: 225 DOB: 1989-11-27 Age: 27
| 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.

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.
| Malcolm Mithchell doubtful, knee injury -- Sat Dec 31 7:00 am --|
Not expected to play against Miami

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.
