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."


Michael Floyd 'made great strides' in second season


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd went over 1,000 receiving yards in his second season, but coach Bruce Arians was more impressed with how Floyd played through a shoulder injury.

“I think Michael is starting to reach his potential,” Arians told the team's website. “He still needs to be more consistent each week. He played through injuries for the first time which is a huge step for a young player to play through injuries. A lot of times they just sit themselves down. He wanted to win, he wanted to help us win. I thought he made great strides. This year, can he do it again?”


Michael Floyd just cracks 1,000-yard mark


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd ended the season on a positive note as he fell nine yards shy of his third 100-yard game of the season in a Week 17 loss to San Francisco.

Floyd came down with a 44-yard reception in the third quarter, his longest gain of the day. He caught six of 12 passes thrown in his direction for 91 yards in a 23-20 defeat, finishing the season with a team-high 1,041 yards and five touchdowns on 65 grabs.

Michael Floyd shows late-game heroics in Seattle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd started off slow but made his only catch of the game count for six during Sunday’s contest against the Seahawks in Week 16.

Floyd came down with a leaping, acrobatic 31-yard reception in the end zone for a touchdown to give Arizona the lead with 2:13 remaining in the game. He was targeted five times in a 17-10 victory.

Floyd will look to keep rolling in Week 17 against the 49ers. He caught four passes for 44 yards and a touchdown his last time out against San Francisco this season.

Nine injured Cardinals get the green light for Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Cardinals have ruled wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (concussion), tight end Rob Housler (groin), quarterback Carson Palmer (ankle, right elbow), linebacker Matt Shaughnessy (groin), defensive back Justin Bethel (wrist), linebacker Karlos Dansby (foot), running back Andre Ellington (quadriceps), wide receiver Michael Floyd (ankle) and running back Rashard Mendenhall (finger) active for Sunday's contest against Seattle in Week 16.

Michael Floyd probable Week 16

(12/20/2013) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd is probable Week 16.

Floyd is listed on the injury report with an ankle injury. He was able to take part in full practice Thursday and Friday.


Michael Floyd has nightmare Week 16 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/17/2013) Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd, who has been questionable the last couple weeks with an ankle injury, has an ugly Week 16 matchup against the Seahawks, who have allowed the fewest Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season. 

Floyd faced the Seahawaks earlier this season, in Week 7, catching five passes for 58 yards. It was a Thursday night game, and Larry Fitzgerald was playing through hamstring issues, so there were some extenuating circumstances. But Week 16 has Arizona playing the Seahawks in Seattle, with a quarterback (Carson Palmer) who is dealing with ankle and elbow issues. 

The good news here is that while No. 1 receivers tend to get locked down by Seattle, some of the supplemental receivers (Jerrel Jernigan, Jarius Wright, Darius Johnson -- all have led their teams in Fantasy points since Week 10) meet some success. Still, these are mainly No. 3 or 4 receivers, not the No. 2, which Floyd is. In Week 7, it was Jaron Brown who scored against Seattle, finishing with nine Fantasy points. 

It's a tough matchup for a receiver who has been hobbled, playing with a banged up quarterback. Floyd can be left on the bench in most formats. 


Michael Floyd held to two catches again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd, who came into Week 15 questionable with an ankle injury, played through the injury but was not effective. He caught two of five targets for 33 yards and had a bad drop.

Floyd has four catches for 59 scoreless yards over his last two games entering Week 16 at Seattle.


Michael Floyd set to face Titans


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd, who was questionable with an ankle injury, is active for the game at Tennessee. Floyd practiced on a limited basis last week. He has four touchdown catches in his last eight games.

Michael Floyd questionable Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Cardinals WR Michael Floyd is questionable Week 15 against the Titans.

Michael Floyd looking for rebound game


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/13/2013) Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd is dealing with an ankle injury heading into Week 15 at Tennessee, so keep an eye on his status prior to game time. If he does play against the Titans then keep him active in the majority of leagues.

Floyd had a down game in Week 14 against the Rams with just two catches for 26 yards on five targets. That ended a three-game streak of at least 10 Fantasy points with two touchdowns and three outings with at least 99 receiving yards.

He has a tough matchup this week against Tennessee, but we still support Floyd as a starter if healthy. The Titans have allowed just five touchdowns to opposing receivers, with three of them coming last week against Denver. Only four receivers have reached double digits in Fantasy points against Tennessee all season.

But Floyd has shown when the targets are there, he can produce, and we like him as a No. 2 Fantasy receiver despite the matchup. If he's able to play as expected then keep him active in your lineup.


Michael Floyd takes part in limited practice Thursday

(12/11/2013) Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd won't practice Wednesday due to his bad ankle, reports the team's website. Floyd aggravated the injury Week 14 and his status is up in the air for Sunday at Tennessee.

Michael Floyd held in check Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Cardinals WR Michael Floyd was limited Week 14 against the Rams.

Floyd caught just two passes for 26 yards. He was targeted five times, which was second on the team behind Larry Fitzgerald. Floyd was on a big hot streak coming into the game. He had accumulated 396 receiving yards in his three previous games. Floyd did manage to draw a defensive pass interference penalty on a drive that led to a touchdown, so he did play a role in the team's win despite some iffy numbers.

Floyd will take on the Titans Week 15.
