Michael Floyd hits a low point


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd had a chance to find the end zone in Week 8, but that probably doesn't make Fantasy owners feel any better about the goose egg he threw up Sunday.

Floyd failed to haul in any of the four passes thrown his way, and was unable to hold on to a potential touchdown during the game. He finished the game without recording a stat, while watching fellow wide receivers John Brown and Larry Fitzgerald each top 100 yards with a touchdown.

Floyd was expected to be the team's top option in the passing game this season, but the quarterback issues have really hampered his production. Still, there is reason for optimism, as much of his other subpar efforts came without Carson Palmer. In Palmer's four starts, he has at least 10 Fantasy points in three of them.

Floyd is on pace for just 43 receptions and 806 yards through seven games, and is now third on the team in both categories. After Sunday's dud, he might make for a solid buy-low candidate if you want to take a risk on him.


Cardinals WR Michael Floyd shut out Week 8


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd had a rough day Week 8 against the Eagles. He was unable to hang on to a potential touchdown, and was shaken up briefly when he landed hard on another incompletion. He finished with zero catches.

Floyd drew four targets, giving him just seven over the past two games. He has just 101 receiving yards over the past four weeks, though that stretch includes two touchdowns. He'll visit the Cowboys in Week 9.


Cardinals' Michael Floyd hauls in a score Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd hauled in a score Week 7 against the Raiders.

Floyd didn't have a huge game, but made his presence felt. He hauled in three catches for 47 yards and a touchdown. Floyd's touchdown happened to come on his biggest play of the game. In the second quarter, Carson Palmer found Floyd 33 yards down the field for the long score. Floyd would catch just one more ball during the contest, but would lose a yard. 

He'll look for more Week 8 against the Eagles. 


Cardinals will have Andre Ellington, Michael Floyd


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Cardinals offensive studs Andre Ellington and Michael Floyd are artive Week 7 against the Raiders.

Both players came into the contest considered probable, and were expected to play. Ellington is still dealing with a foot injury. Floyd has a groin issue. 


Cardinals include 12 players on final injury report for Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Cardinals have listed 12 players on their final injury report for Week 7 at Oakland. As expected, defensive end Calais Campbell (knee) and tight end Troy Niklas (ankle) were ruled out for Sunday.

Deemed questionable were tight end John Carlson (knee), inside linebacker Glenn Carson, defensive end Frostee Rucker (calf) and defensive tackle Alameda Ta'amu (illness). Meanwhile, wide receiver John Brown (hamstring), Andre Ellington (foot), wide receiver Michael Floyd (groin), outside linebacker Alex Okafor (quad), quarterback Carson Palmer (shoulder) and Patrick Peterson (ankle) were all labeled as probable on the report.


Palmer, Ellington, Floyd listed probable for Cardinals in Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) As expected, the Cardinals will have their top three offensive stars for Week 7 against the Raiders. Quarterback Carson Palmer (right shoulder) was ruled probable for Sunday's game against his former team. Palmer returned to action last week and threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns against Washington.

Running back Andre Ellington was a limited participant in practice all week because of a lingering foot injury. Wide receiver Michael Floyd was a full participant Thursday and Friday despite dealing with a groin injury. Both players were deemed probable on the final injury report.


Cardinals receivers looking for more success


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Cardinals passing game had new life breathed into it with Carson Palmer's return, and Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd will look to continue reaping the rewards Sunday at Oakland.

Both Floyd and Fitzgerald found the end zone Week 6, and they should find success again. The Raiders haven't been terrible overall against wide receivers this season but have fallen apart over the last two games. Dolphins and Chargers wideouts have averaged 26.5 Fantasy points, with three touchdowns and 379 yards combined.

The downside to this matchup? The Raiders have not been particularly competitive this season, so opposing quarterbacks don't need to put the ball in the air much. Only one team has had fewer passes attempted against it than the Raiders at 30.0 per game. Still, consider both players solid Fantasy options for Week 7, with Floyd still getting the edge. 


Carson Palmer looks healthy enough to use


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was plenty productive Week 6 against Washington, completing 28 of 44 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns in a rather abrupt return from a shoulder nerve issue that caused him to miss three games.

That makes Palmer 2 for 2 in throwing for 250 yards and two touchdowns this season. You'll take that in Fantasy.

Coach Bruce Arians' comments Monday make Palmer even more attractive in Fantasy. He said 44 attempts will be the norm for him with the way defenses stack the box against the Cardinals. With wide receiver Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald at his disposal, Palmer certainly has the weapons to make the most of all those throws.

He won't play mistake-free football all season -- he threw 22 interceptions last year, to put it in perspective -- but if you feel like your starting quarterback is bringing you down, he's in a situation to put up consistent numbers if his shoulder continues to feel good.

You have to like his matchup Week 7 at Oakland. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both have him in their top 12 for the contest. Though the Raiders rank a modest 11th against the pass, that's just because they're so busy getting beat by the run. They've allowed the fourth-highest passer rating of any team this season.


Michael Floyd snags touchdown in Week 6 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd caught four of his seven targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in his team's 30-20 win over the Redskins in Week 6.

Floyd entered the day with no touchdowns and only 12 catches on 29 targets, but he was able to quickly get on the board with a 20-yard touchdown grab in the first quarter Sunday. The deep threat now has 16 receptions and 306 yards in five games, and continued good health from Carson Palmer could lead to an uptick in his production. Floyd is set to face the Raiders in Week 7.


Michael Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald suddenly viable


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) With reports of Carson Palmer potentially making his return from a shoulder injury Week 6 against Washington, Cardinals wide receivers Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald suddenly look more attractive in Fantasy.

For much of the week, they looked like they'd be working with third-string quarterback Logan Thomas with backup Drew Stanton also recovering from a concussion. But Stanton was also cleared to play, which means even if the Cardinals pull the plug on Palmer at the last minute (which would be unfortunate since they don't play until 4:25 p.m. ET), Floyd and Fitzgerald won't be so bad off.

But of course, working with a quarterback who can make the most of their abilities would be ideal, and Palmer is the only one of the three who fits the bill. Floyd is the better bet than Fitzgerald -- he had five catches for 119 yards with Palmer under center in Week 1 -- but considering the Redskins have allowed 11 touchdowns through the air, fourth-most in the NFL, Fitzgerald also has some low-end appeal.


Michael Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald could be in trouble


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) By now, Fantasy owners are used to being disappointed by Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. The eight-time Pro Bowler has averaged only 41.0 receiving yards through his first four games, a continuation of a decline that began in 2012.

But with the injury to backup quarterback Drew Stanton, who suffered a concussion in the third quarter Week 5 at Denver, Michael Floyd owners may soon share in that pain.

Floyd was in enough trouble with Stanton under center, but his five-catch, 114-yard performance Week 3 against San Francisco at least left some room for optimism. Now, though, he's made just one catch in two of the three games started by Stanton.

Needless to say, that catch in Week 5 didn't come from third-stringer Logan Thomas, whose only completion was an 81-yard catch-and-run to running back Andre Ellington. That's not good news for anybody, not even Ellington.

Granted, Stanton may not miss significant time with his concussion, but chances are the only cure for Fitzgerald and Floyd is the return of starting quarterback Carson Palmer. And his timetable remains a mystery.


Cardinals WR Michael Floyd catches one pass


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd caught just one pass Week 5.

Floyd's only reception came near the end of the second quarter. On 3rd and 10, he hauled in a 7 yard pass. Floyd wound up being targeted seven times, but only came away with one catch. His seven targets tied for the team-high. 

Floyd will look for more Week 6 against Washington. 


Michael Floyd bounces back from one-catch game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) A week after being held to one catch, Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd had much better rapport with backup quarterback Drew Stanton during a 23-14 win Week 3 vs. San Francisco. Floyd totaled a team-high 114 receiving yards on five catches.

Floyd's longest reception went for 45 yards. He also had a 36-yard reception on the team's opening drive and all his receptions went for at least 10 yards.

Floyd, who was targeted nine times, had a chance for two touchdowns, but both times the play was broken up by the defense. The second time would have resulted in a 38-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but the pass from Stanton was slightly underthrown and it made for an easy pass defense.

He has surpassed 100 yards in two of three games. The Cardinals are on a bye Week 4 before returning to action Week 5 at Denver.


Michael Floyd impacted by absence of starting QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer's absence from the lineup Sunday against the Giants arguably had the biggest impact on receiver Michael Floyd, who finished with just one catch for 19 yards after totaling five catches for 119 yards in the season opener. 

Floyd was targeted six times by backup quarterback Drew Stanton, which included the first play of the game that resulted in Floyd's only catch. Floyd was targeted three times in each half.

The Cardinals are back in action Week 3 against the 49ers, but coach Bruce Arians indicated after Sunday's game that Palmer might remain sidelined through the team's Week 4 bye.


Michael Floyd looks like Cards' No. 1 receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) The passing of the torch from Larry Fitzgerald to Michael Floyd might already have happened. Monday night against San Diego, Floyd emerged as Carson Palmer's go-to guy, leading the Cardinals with seven targets.

Floyd streaked past the secondary for a 63-yard catch in the first quarter, the second-longest grab of his career. On the game-winning drive in the fourth quarter, Floyd converted 3rd-and-8 with a diving 16-yard reception. Floyd finished with five catches for a game-high 119 yards.

Floyd gets the Giants' burnable secondary in Week 2.


Michael Floyd to benefit from Bruce Arians' approach


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Coach Bruce Arians loves to attack downfield. In Arians' first season running the Cardinals, quarterback Carson Palmer attempted 74 passes targeted 20 or more yards downfield, seventh-most in the NFL. Look for Palmer to finish in the Top 5 in that category this year.

That's where Michael Floyd comes in. The third-year pro averaged 16 yards per catch last season. That ranked fifth among wideouts with 60 or more catches.

In the dress rehearsal game against Cincinnati, Floyd twice got behind the defense only to see Palmer overthrow him. Arizona won't stop trying to hit Floyd deep.

After finishing as the No. 24 Fantasy wideout in 2013, Floyd is poised to take a leap. His Week 1 matchup against the Chargers isn't daunting, as the 6-2, 220-pounder will go up against the smallest secondary in the league.

Consider him a high-end WR2.


Michael Floyd practiced on limited basis Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) As expected, Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd returned to practice Wednesday, though his participation was limited.

Floyd has been dealing with a groin injury. It remains to be seen if he plays Saturday against Cincinnati.


Michael Floyd set to return Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd hasn't played in a preseason game while nursing a groin injury. He also missed Monday's practice, but ESPN.com reports coach Bruce Arians expects Floyd to return for the next practice Wednesday.

That would give Floyd a good chance to play in the third preseason game Sunday against the Bengals.


Michael Floyd to overtake Larry Fitzgerald as No. 1 receiver?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Cardinals third-year wideout Michael Floyd "is in for a big year" and some people within the organization think he'll surpass Larry Fitzgerald as the team's No. 1 wideout, reports NFL writer Dan Pompei. Floyd more than doubled his production from Year 1 to Year 2, catching 66 passes for 1,054 yards and five touchdowns.

Ted Ginn, Michael Floyd sit out preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) The Cardinals will be without wide receivers Ted Ginn and Michael Floyd Saturday against the Texans due to injuries, the team announced. Ginn is nursing a knee injury and is expected to miss a "few days," while Floyd will sit out approximately 6-10 days due to a groin injury.

The team will travel to Minnesota on Aug. 16 for a preseason game against the Vikings.

Michael Floyd 'caught nearly everything'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) Michael Floyd was one of several Cardinals players singled out for having a solid spring by the Arizona Republic. Per the paper, Floyd knew where to line up and "caught nearly everything thrown his way." The paper even seemed to suggest Floyd as a terrific pick for Fantasy Football. 

Floyd led the Cardinals with 1,041 yards on just 65 catches last season -- 17 fewer grabs than Larry Fitzgerald. 


Michael Floyd drawing constant praise from coaches


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd is eliciting constant praise from coaches, and "his play is going to dictate more and more attention," reports the team's website. Starting opposite Larry Fitzgerald, Floyd led the team last year with 1,041 receiving yards on 65 catches with five scoring grabs.

Palmer excited for Michael Floyd


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is excited for receiver Michael Floyd this year, reports the team's official website.

"The way Mike Floyd is playing," Palmer said, "just jumped out at me."

Floyd had 1,041 receiving yards last year, which led the team, and he had 65 catches. He knows this is an important season for him.

"This is my third year," Floyd said. "You just have to prepare differently."

Added Palmer: "I have very high expectations for Mike this year."


Addition of Ted Ginn should help Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/10/2014) Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin believes that the addition of receiver Ted Ginn will only help the prospects for Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd to have big seasons in 2014

"[I]t's going to help the overall passing game a lot from a play-action standpoint and a drop-back standpoint," Goodwin said of Ginn's arrival per the Arizona Republic. "It's going to help Larry (Fitzgerald) and Michael (Floyd)."

The thinking is that Ginn will attract enough coverage to keep extra defenders from playing tight on Fitzgerald and Floyd. Without a third receiver boasting speed like Ginn, Fitzgerald had 954 yards and 10 touchdowns while Floyd posted 1,041 yards and five touchdowns. 


Michael Floyd has chance to improve in 2014


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/31/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has high expectations for third-year receiver Michael Floyd heading into this year.

Floyd had 65 catches for 1,041 yards and five touchdowns in 2013, but Arians thinks he can improve this season.

"Michael Floyd is still developing," Arians said in an interview with CBSSports.com at the NFL owners meeting. "He became a 1,000-yard receiver, but he can improve as much this year as he did last year. His consistency level. He learned how to play hurt, he played through injuries and he made big plays. But he lost a lot of big plays. I have a tape for him to watch when he gets back. A good one and a real bad one. We need to eliminate that real bad one."
