Cardinals WR Michael Floyd finishes with 41 yards


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd had a rough game Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Floyd received eight targets, but only came down with two catches. Both of those receptions came on the same drive in the third quarter. Floyd hauled in a nine yard pass to start, and then pulled down a 32 yard reception just three plays later. He was able to draw two defensive penalties on his other targets, so he found a way to make a difference even though he only had two receptions.

Floyd will look for more Week 17 against the 49ers. 


Cardinals' Michael Floyd leads team in receiving yards vs. Rams


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd caught two of his three targets for a team-high 55 yards in his team's 12-6 win over the Rams in Week 15.

Floyd kicked off the team's second scoring drive by hauling in a 49-yard pass, beating his man deep and catching a perfectly placed ball before being brought down. He didn't have much more of an impact on the game, but the Cardinals resorted to ball control and excellent defense to pick up the win.

Larry Fitzgerald was the only Arizona player with more than two receptions, catching seven passes for 30 yards. Rookie John Brown caught two of his six targets for 22 yards. Tight end John Carlson and wide receiver Ted Ginn each caught their only target.

The Cardinals have a tough matchup on the schedule next week, facing the Seahawks at home in Week 16.


Michael Floyd paces Cardinals in receiving


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Wideout Michael Floyd caught four passes for a team-high 85 yards in the Week 14 win over the Chiefs. Floyd was targeted seven times, two fewer than Larry Fitzgerald.

Floyd failed to score for the third straight week. He'll visit the Rams on Thursday.


Cardinals' Michael Floyd does little despite targets


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd couldn't do much with a team-high 10 targets Week 13.

Floyd was able to haul in five passes for 53 yards. It was a tough one for Floyd. His longest reception went for 22 yards, so he was mainly limited to short catches. After his big play, Floyd hauled in a 13 yard reception, but fumbled, turning the ball over. He was also flagged for offensive pass interference during the contest.

Floyd will look for more Week 14 against the Chiefs. 


Good luck with Michael Floyd


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd caught two passes in Week 11, which at face value would give no one the impression he was back to form. But because both happened to go for touchdowns, including one of more than 40 yards, some of his owners couldn't be talked out of starting him Week 12 at Seattle. And those owners are filled with remorse right now.

That's because, with backup Drew Stanton again under center for the Cardinals, Floyd went without a single catch. He was targeted twice but failed to connect -- and with fellow wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald sidelined by a a sprained knee, no less.

That's the lowest of lows for him in what has been by and large a disappointing season. With this performance, he's averaging 2.1 catches for 28.9 yards over his last seven games. He's had a few touchdowns during that stretch to soften the blow, but ultimately, all they've done is given his owners false hope.

Unlike Fitzgerald, Floyd's production didn't improve for those five games when starting quarterback Carson Palmer was back from injury, and now Palmer is out for the year. Between Stanton's shortcomings and John Brown's emergence, you shouldn't be hoping for any sort of rebound from Floyd.


Cardinals WR John Brown paces tepid receiving attack in Week 12


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Cardinals wide receiver John Brown caught three of his five targets for a team-high 61 yards in Arizona's 19-3 loss in Seattle in Week 12.

Brown's reception late in the third quarter was a thing of beauty, shaking off his coverage while djusting to an underthrown ball and barely keeping his toes in bounds while falling to the sideline. The play stood after being challenged by the Seahawks. Unfortunately, it was one of precious few highlights for the passing game against a stout Seattle defense.

Michael Floyd was held catchless on just two offical targets, and only four players on the Cardinals offense were able to haul in at least one reception. Running back Andre Ellington managed a team-high five catches, while tight end John Carlson caught three passes for 25 yards and wide receiver Jaron Brown hauled in three passes for 24 yards. Larry Fitzgerald was inactive with a sprained knee ligament.

The Cardinals offense will hope to bounce back with a likely easier matchup in Atlanta in Week 13.


Michael Floyd post first two-touchdown game of his career


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd caught touchdown passes on Arizona's first two possessions Sunday, giving him the first two-touchdown performance of his three-year career. Floyd boxed out his defender for a 42-yard score, then beat man coverage for a 12-yard touchdown on an out route.

He finished with those two grabs on five targets for 54 yards. It was his highest yardage output since Week 3.

Floyd visits the Seahawks in Week 12.


Signs of life promising for Michael Floyd


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd awoke from a deep slumber in Week 11 against the Lions, but there is still reason to be concerned about his Fantasy value down the line.

Floyd, who had just 47 yards in his previous three games, nearly matched total on his first catch of the game, a 42-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He exceeded it minutes later, as he scored from 10 yards out and looks to be on his way to a truly massive breakout game.

Those ended up being Floyd's only two catches of the game, as he finished with 54 yards and a pair of scores. The good news is, Drew Stanton looked his way and found him more than Carson Palmer had been recently. The bad news is, without those touchdowns, this would have been just another pedestrian performance from a guy who was a preseason breakout candidate.

It is encouraging that Floyd found a way to be productive, but the margin for error is going to be awfully small if he has to keep relying on touchdowns for Fantasy value. Floyd is a dangerous big play option, but he has struggled mightily so far this season. You're feeling better about his value now, but Floyd still looks like an unreliable option at this point. 


Michael Floyd, other Cardinals pass catchers struggle Week 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd had a rough game Week 10 against the Rams. 

Floyd hauled in just one pass, gaining 11 yards. He was targeted four times during the contest. Jaron Brown actually finished third in receiving on the day, picking up 35 yards on three catches. Tight end John Carlson had 33 yards on two receptions. Troy Niklas caught just one pass, gaining 17 yards. Ted Ginn Jr. also caught one pass, but gained 15 yards. Rob Housler gained 11 yards on his only catch.

Floyd and the crew will take on the Lions Week 11. 


Has Michael Floyd hit rock-bottom?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd entered the season with expectations of being the team's top receiving option, however, he has fallen extremely far down the hierarchy and may not be worth owning for Fantasy purposes at this point.

Floyd was targeted just four times in Week 10 against the Rams, and finished the game with just one reception for 11 yards. It was the second time in three games he has finished with one or no receptions, and the fourth time overall this season. In fact, since recording his second 100-yard game in Week 3, he has not even reached 50 yards or five receptions in a game.

Floyd has caught just 24 of 52 passes thrown his way on the season, so it isn't much of a surprise his role has declined. He is a big-play guy who hasn't been able to connect on big plays, which limits how much you can expect from him. It wouldn't be a surprise if Floyd found success down the stretch, but you simply can't rely on him at this point. 


Cardinals WR situation gets more confusing


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/2014) Suddenly, Larry Fitzgerald looks like the Cardinals wide receiver to own in Fantasy. He led the team in receiving for the second straight game Week 9 at Dallas, making five catches for 70 yards.

It was a far cry from the seven catches for 160 yards he had Week 8 against Philadelphia, but he once again proved he's still capable of delivering a big play, turning a slant route midway through the third quarter into a 20-yard gain with a quick burst up the middle and a stiff arm at the end. He also had a 31-yard catch earlier in the contest.

Michael Floyd, meanwhile, had just four catches for 36 yards and has now had fewer than 50 yards in five straight games, including all four with starting quarterback Carson Palmer back in the lineup. John Brown, who entered the mix with five catches for 119 yards and a touchdown in Week 8, had only two catches for 10 yards in this one.

So what does it mean in Fantasy? Well, even with a favorable matchup Week 10 against St. Louis, Fitzgerald is the only one you should be excited to start. Floyd is still worth owning because of his upside, but he clearly needs to win back your trust. Brown is a complete wild card who should probably be on waivers in standard 12-team leagues.


Cardinals WR Michael Floyd musters 36 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd, held without a catch Week 8, hauled in four of five targets for 36 yards in Sunday's win at Dallas. Floyd fumbled following his third catch but Arizona recovered.

Floyd has not cleared 50 receiving yards since Week 3. He'll play the Rams in Week 10.


Andre Ellington, Michael Floyd set to face Cowboys


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) and wideout Michael Floyd (knee) are active as expected for Sunday's game at Dallas. Both were listed as probable.

Cardinals list mostly probables on Friday injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Running back Stepfan Taylor (calf), who has been ruled out as expected by the Cardinals for their Sunday game in Dallas, is the lone no-go. Safety Tony Jefferson (knee) and tight end Troy Niklas (ankle) are questionable.

The rest on their Friday injury list are probable, including standout cornerback Patrick Peterson (concussion). They are defensive end Calais Campbell (knee), linebacker Kenny Demens (knee), running back Andre Ellington (foot), wideout Michael Floyd (knee) and safety Rashad Johnson (knee).


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.
