    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.

  • 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.
