|Draft: 2012 Round 1 (13)
College: Notre Dame
Ht: 6’3” Wt: 225 DOB: 1989-11-27 Age: 26
|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.
| Michael Floyd misses another practice -- Thu Dec 31 7:50 pm --|
|Coach Bruce Arians told reporters Wednesday that WR Michael Floyd, pass rusher Dwight Freeney and OLB Markus Golden did not participate and that they each would be monitored leading up to Sunday’s regular-season finale against the visiting Seattle Seahawks. Floyd, who has went over the 100-yard receiving mark five times in his past seven games, is dealing with a pull of some sort behind the back of his knee, Arians said.
“(Floyd) rehabbed well today, so hopefully we’ll get some work out of him before the week is over,” Arians said. (Arizona Republic)|
FF Today's Take: Floyd ripped the Seahawks for seven catches, 113 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10 in Seattle, so his potential absence would be a big deal in the rematch for a team trying to stay in the race for the top overall seed in the NFC. He has to be considered questionable for now, at least until more information becomes available.
| Michael Floyd, John Brown practice on Friday -- Fri Nov 27 12:23 pm --|
Both should play in Week 12
|With WRs John Brown and Michael Floyd out there again today for practice, looks like both should be available this week too. #AZvsSF (Darren Urban on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Floyd sat out last week with his hamstring injury but has five TDs in the last four games he's played. With John Brown also active, both players are legitimate WR3's with big upside against a 49ers defense giving up the 5th-most fantasy points to wide receivers.
| Michael Floyd to be limited at best -- Sun Nov 22 8:00 am --|
Missed practice all week with hamstring injury
|Cards expect WR John Brown (hamstring-Q) to play vs. Cincy; not as optimistic about WR Michael Floyd (hammy-Q), who at best will be limited. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Floyd didn't practice all week and is a candidate to be inactive. Even if he does play tonight against the Bengals, he won't be a recommended fantasy option. John Brown is in play but his "decoy" the last two games makes him a risky proposition as well.

Cardinals receivers battling hamstring injuries
|Arians says Floyd will be game time call. Floyd experienced enough to play without practicing. John brown also game time. (Kent Somers on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Michael Floyd (hamstring) hasn't practiced all week. It's likely he'll end up on the Inactive list. John Brown (hamstring) has played in the last two games but has been nothing more than a decoy. Jaron Brown will see more targets if either one of the starter sits.

FF Today's Take: Floyd missed Wednesday's practice as well. We won't know Floyd's true availability until later in the week but owners should be looking for other options in Week 11.

|In open part of AZCardinals practice, I didn't see G Iupati, G Cooper, WR Michael Floyd, WR John Brown, DT Redding, LB Markus Golden. #CINvsAZ (Darren Urban on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Floyd injured his hamstring late in Week 10 and was replaced by Jaron Brown. Both are likely to be listed as Questionable this week.
