    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.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 5:21pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd hauled in a pair of receptions for 18 yards in the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins He was targeted just three times.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has taken a huge step back this season, falling off the fantasy map with four straight games of 31 receiving yards or less. You can no longer rely upon him in fantasy football except in the very deepest of leagues.

  • Posted: 12/2/2016 7:14pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and isn't listed on the Week 13 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners haven't been able to count on Floyd all year, and that isn't likely to change in Week 13. Avoid him in all formats.

  • Posted: 12/1/2016 7:55pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has managed just one good game all year, and he should be left on the bench in Week 13.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 1:55pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd caught two passes for 31 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has been limited to four catches for 52 yards over the last two games and has gone five games without a touchdown. He has still been targeted at least five times in four of the last five games, but owners probably should pass on Floyd until he posts better numbers.

  • Posted: 11/25/2016 12:15pm ET

    Updating a previous story, Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) will be a game-time decision in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: With Desmond Trufant a good bet to shadow Larry Fitzgerald on the majority of snaps this week, Floyd was in a good spot to deliver a WR3-caliber fantasy line against the Falcons' questionable secondary. A less-than-100 percent Floyd is enough of a dice-roll this year with Carson Palmer not playing well, so a limited Floyd isn't worth starting even in a game that figures to be a bit of a shootout. John Brown and J.J. Nelson are solid low-end WR3 candidates this weekend.

  • Posted: 11/25/2016 11:10am ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) sat out a second straight practice Friday, Nov. 25.

    Huddle Up: Considering he suffered the injury mid-week and hasn't practiced since, he's looking very much like a longshot to face the Atlanta Falcons this weekend. Since top corner Desmond Trufant figures to follow Larry Fitzgerald across the formation, Floyd was a good candidate to bounce back with a decent game this week after struggling through an illness in Week 11. In Floyd's likely absence, John Brown and J.J. Nelson are candidates to post WR3 numbers.

  • Posted: 11/24/2016 8:24pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: Floyd was added to the injury report, so he must have tweaked his hamstring during practice. He has struggled with consistency all year, but he has flex potential in Week 12 against a suspect Atlanta defense.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 9:46pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd hauled in five receptions for 101 yards in the Week 10 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted six times.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has been nearly non-existent in the Arizona offense this season, but this was certainly nice for his impatient fantasy owners. If you have stuck with him this long, keep him reserved at least one more game. He faces a tough Minnesota defense in Week 11, so the good times might not last. If they do, he can be trusted as a WR3 again.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 9:15am ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 8 game.

    Huddle Up: Floyd was considered a longshot before the game, but he will be on the field for the Cardinals. He will be a risky option for owners because of the injuries, and owners may want to consider healthier options to use in their lineups.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 6:58am ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) is considered a longshot to play in Week 8's game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Floyd returned to practice in a limited capacity Friday, Oct. 28, and was listed as questionable on the most recent injury report. His uncertain status and inconsistent play this year make him a very risky play for Week 8, so owners should look for safer options.

  • Posted: 10/28/2016 3:25pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has been a bit inconsistent this season but is coming off a 65-yard performance in Week 7 and has three touchdowns on the season. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but could also be benched if owners have better options to use.

  • Posted: 10/27/2016 3:33pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) did not practice for a second straight day Thursday, Oct. 27.

    Huddle Up: Floyd looks to be as questionable as a player can be just three days before game time. If Floyd misses practice again tomorrow then he could be due for a doubtful status. He's a risky option even if does play because he could be limited. Don't automatically bench him, though, especially with so many bye weeks in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 8:15pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) missed practice Wednesday, Oct. 26, and head coach Bruce Arians indicated with Floyd and WR John Brown (illness) that 'there's a possibility' one of the receivers misses the Week 8 game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Floyd should be avoided in Week 8, even if he can play, as his production has been down and he just isn't racking up the targets like fantasy owners would like to see.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 3:42pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Floyd's status later in the week to see if he will be able to play. He has been a bit inconsistent this season but does have three touchdowns in seven games. He could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option if he is active for the game.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 2:45pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 8 despite suffering a hamstring injury in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has three touchdowns to his name this year, but he hasn't been as heavily as involved as expected before the season started. He hasn't surpassed five catches or 65 yards in any of the six games he's played. It may be inconvenient to bench him, but he's not a reliable starter right now.

  • Posted: 10/17/2016 9:24pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd had just two receptions for 22 yards in the Week 6 game against the New York Jets Monday, Oct. 17, but one of the catches was good for a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has been missing in action in the Arizona offense lately, getting blanked in San Francisco last week. However, he still has a touchdown in three of his past five games. He'll get it going again. Floyd isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues in the active lineup right now, but he is worth stashing away if he is on the waiver wire.

  • Posted: 10/6/2016 9:03pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd finished with zero catches on three targets in a 33-21 win over the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, Oct. 6.

    Huddle Up: It doesn't seem to matter who is under center for Arizona. Floyd continues to struggle with consistency, and at this point, you have no choice but to hold on to him and hope he turns things around.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 10:02pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (concussion) was active in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams. He posted three grabs for 36 yards and a touchdown on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has managed just 12 receptions through the first four games and his season-high is 65 yards. However, he has managed a pair of touchdowns and is averaging nearly eight targets per game. He is a solid WR3 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 5 in San Francisco.

  • Posted: 9/30/2016 9:11pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd continues to struggle with consistency in practice and games, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'He shines and then all of a sudden he'll drop an easy one,' Arians said. 'You just can't do that.'

    Huddle Up: After closing last season on a high note, Floyd hasn't been able to find his rhythm. He has time to turn it around, but he is a risky WR3 right now.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 7:34pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Floyd appears on track to play in Week 4, but he has been unable to find a rhythm with Carson Palmer. He has been targeted 24 times in three games, but he has just nine catches. Leave him on the bench.

  • Posted: 9/28/2016 6:52pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (concussion) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 28, as he recovers from a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Floyd's status for Week 4 against the Rams is up in the air. If he cannot play it would be good news for Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown, who would see a bump in targets. It's just mid-week, however, so don't write off Floyd just yet.

  • Posted: 9/27/2016 5:46pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (concussion) could be cleared as early as Thursday, Sept. 29, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Floyd has already been cleared for non-contact activities.

    Huddle Up: Floyd is one of the bigger names to keep an eye on heading into Week 4. If he stays limited in practice throughout the week then it could lead up to a game-time decision. If Floyd can't take the field, then John Brown would assume the No. 2 wide receiver position behind Larry Fitzgerald. In that case, Fitz would be worthy of PPR1 status, while Brown would make for a borderline WR2.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 12:32pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (head) was cleared on the sideline to reenter the game in Week 3 Buffalo Bills, but he experienced a headache on Monday, Sept. 26, and entered the league's concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: Floyd has officially only missed one game in four seasons with the Cardinals, but he always seems to be struggling with injuries. With John Brown working through his own concussion issues, there may be work soon for Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson. Larry Fitzgerald may be in line for a busy day in Week 4 versus the Los Angeles Rams and is a recommended DFS option for that contest.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 2:15pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd caught four passes for 65 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Floyd bounced back from a quiet Week 2 with 65 yards after he was targeted 11 times during the game. Floyd will have a solid role in Arizona's passing game as long as he is healthy and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver against the Los Angeles Rams.
