    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 7 but said he is optimistic about his chances of playing. Floyd also said he would like to see more targets in the passing game.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has recorded two catches and 24 yards in two games this season and has been targeted four times during that span. He could receive some more playing time this week with Stefon Diggs sidelined but should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 12:39pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd (calf) suffered a calf injury in Week 6 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Floyd recorded only one reception for five yards in the game and his status for Week 7 is uncertain at this point. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Floyd most weeks.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 9:15am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd is in the starting lineup against the Green Bay Packers in place of WR Stefon Diggs (groin).

    Huddle Up: Floyd made his season debut last week and finished with one catches for 19 yards. He should receive more targets this week and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but could also be avoided if owners have better options available.

  • Posted: 10/3/2017 11:13pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd is eligible to return to the active roster after serving his four-game suspension. He's expected to practice with the team Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Despite a tough situation at quarterback, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have more than held their own, sitting first and third, respectively, in receiving yardage through four games. That probably caps Floyd's ceiling as the team's No. 3 receiver, which doesn't figure to have appreciable fantasy value. As such, there's no reason to make a move on Floyd this week.

  • Posted: 9/2/2017 1:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd was placed on the Reserve/Suspended list Saturday, Sept. 2.

    Huddle Up: Floyd will miss the first four games of the season and it is uncertain what role he will have when he returns. Owners can pass on Floyd during drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option during the season.

  • Posted: 7/14/2017 1:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd has been suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has had some off the field problems over the last year and will miss the first month of the season because of the suspension. Floyd had some value when he signed with the Vikings but probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues now. Adam Thielen could see more targets this season and can be a No. 3 receiver in leagues.

  • Posted: 6/26/2017 9:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd will remain with the team despite receiving a one-day jail sentence, according to general manager Rick Spielman, who said that Floyd will be expected with the rest of the club at the start of training camp when players report on July 26.

    Huddle Up: Even so, Floyd has fallen mightily over the last year and shouldn't really be considered even in the deepest of fantasy leagues. He's far down on the depth chart and it's highly unlikely he works his way into getting regular targets from Sam Bradford, especially with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen already absorbing most of the looks.

  • Posted: 6/16/2017 8:27pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd said Thursday, June 15, that he still has plenty of work to do in order to be comfortable with the offense before training camp begins in July.

    Huddle Up: Floyd is trying to claim the No. 3 receiver role, but even if he wins the job, he is unlikely to have any consistent value in Minnesota's limited passing attack.

  • Posted: 5/25/2017 11:37pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd's one-year deal that contains no guaranteed money, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling. That means the team has no financial commitment to Floyd should he fail to make the final cut.

    Huddle Up: Floyd teased for years in Arizona as part of a much better passing attack. There are certainly opportunities to earn snaps in Minnesota, but it's unlikely Floyd will do enough to return meaningful value. He's best left on waivers.

  • Posted: 5/21/2017 7:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd won't have any issues picking up the offensive system, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

    Huddle Up: Even if Floyd earns steady playing time, he is going to have a tough time providing much fantasy value as part of a Minnesota offense that relies on shorter throws. You can leave him on the waiver wire.

  • Posted: 5/18/2017 6:49pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd will begin practicing next week after having the remainder of his 96-day house arrest transferred from Arizona to Minnesota, according to a league source.

    Huddle Up: Floyd could claim the No. 3 receiver job in Minnesota, but being the third or fourth option in a dink-and-dump passing game doesn't translate to a lot of fantasy appeal. He is just a late-round flier.

  • Posted: 5/10/2017 12:17pm ET

    Free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Patriots) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, May 10, according to sources. The deal is worth $1.5 million, but Floyd could make as much as $6 million based on incentives.

    Huddle Up: Floyd may receive the chance to compete for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp but probably will be the No. 4 receiver at worst. He probably will see a limited amount of targets in 2017 but could be a late-round option in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 5/7/2017 3:39pm ET

    Free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Patriots) will not be re-signing with the New England Patriots this offseason, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has been connected with a few teams this offseason and could sign in the near future. He finished last season with 488 yards and five touchdowns but only had one reception during the playoffs. He could find the job as a No. 3 receiver for a team but probably will be a late-round option at best in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 5/4/2017 4:36pm ET

    The Minnesota Vikings are 'highly, highly interested' in free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Patriots).

    Huddle Up: Floyd endured the most disappointing season of his five-year career in 2016, getting cut by the only team he played for following a DUI arrest in December and finishing with just 33 catches for 446 yards. Ironically, he did manage to capture his first Super Bowl ring for his late stint with the Patriots, but other than that, his numbers were down across the board. If he were to land in Minnesota, that might be a fine spot for the 27-year-old to get his career back on track.

  • Posted: 3/24/2017 9:22am ET

    Free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Patriots) is a 'long shot' to return to the New England Patriots after they acquired Brandin Cooks earlier this month, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

    Huddle Up: Floyd was sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days of home detention earlier this offseason as a result of his in-season extreme DUI, so the combination of that punishment and the Patriots' trade of Cooks doesn't leave much room for him. It looks like Floyd could be waiting until training camp before he finds a home, if even then.

  • Posted: 2/5/2017 12:11pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd is expected to be a healthy scratch for Super Bowl LI.

    Huddle Up: It's really not a surprise after he was a healthy scratch for the AFC Championship. Floyd would be the Patriots' fifth receiver behind Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Malcolm Mitchell and Danny Amendola. Virtually any fifth receiver on a game-day roster has to contribute on special teams, and Floyd does not. Along with his limited knowledge of the Patriots' complex offense - he was claimed off waivers on Dec. 15 - the odds are stacked against him playing in the Super Bowl.

  • Posted: 1/14/2017 9:25pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd finished with on catch on three targets for nine yards in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Floyd is probably still learning the playbook, but if Chris Hogan's injury turns out to be serious, Floyd could be in for a big performance in the conference title game.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 7:15pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd posted three receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown on four targets in the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Floyd was picked up after being jettisoned by the Arizona Cardinals for off-field issues. He has a chance to make an impact in the postseason, and could be a solid WR4 in playoff fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 8:51am ET

    New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd is active Sunday, Dec. 24, for Week 16 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Floyd cannot possibly have a full grasp on the playbook at this point, and even if he plays at all, there is no way gamers can trust him in championship week. There is an outside chance he scores, as being a deep threat is in his wheelhouse, but there is not a justification for finding out the hard way.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 8:05am ET

    New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd is expected to be active for Week 16's game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Floyd's role in the New England offense is expected to be minor, especially given the fact that he has only been with the organization for nine days and is still familiarizing himself with the playbook. Look elsewhere for receiving help for your fantasy squad.

  • Posted: 12/14/2016 12:22pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd was released Wednesday, Dec. 14. The team also signed free-agent WR Jeremy Ross (Jets). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Floyd was arrested for driving under the influence earlier this week and may not be able to find another team before the end of the season, so owners can drop him in all leagues. JJ Nelson should have a bigger role in the passing game and can be a low-end No. 3 receiver or a flex option.

  • Posted: 12/13/2016 12:53am ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd was arrested early Monday, Dec. 12. Floyd was found asleep at the wheel of his car while it was running, and he was subsequently arrested on two counts of DUI and one count of ?obstructing a roadway and failure to obey a police officer.?

    Huddle Up: Floyd has had other run-ins with the bottle while in college, so this could merit the NFL stepping in with a suspension. In any case, Floyd's future with Arizona is cloudy, and so should his future on your fantasy team. Floyd hasn't produced enough to merit keeping him around.
