|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.

Cards should have No.2 receiver

FF Today's Take: Floyd is nursing a shoulder injury but expected to play on Sunday after practicing on Thursday and Friday. He's nothing more than a WR4.
|Roberts steps up as third-down WR -- Mon Sep 9 3:25 pm --|
Eight catches for a team-high 97 yards
|Andre Roberts had shown flashes throughout the first three years of his NFL career, but until Sunday, he hadn't exactly made a definitive case to be the Arizona Cardinals' No. 2 receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald.
Roberts opened 2013 with a bang in Arizona's 27-24 loss to St. Louis Sunday, grabbing eight passes for a team-high 97 yards.

FF Today's Take: While Roberts is a longshot to overtake Michael Floyd as a starter, there should be plenty of opportunity for him to produce like one. Fitzgerald appears ready to rejoin the ranks of the elite receivers after suffering from poor quarterbacking in recent years while Floyd averaged over 20 yards on his four receptions. All three Arizona receivers should be considered starting-caliber options until further notice.
