Floyd hauled in all three passes for 47 yards, including a 33-yard touchdown, during Sunday's victory at Oakland.

The target count was Floyd's lowest of the season, but the second-quarter score salvaged what could have been yet another mundane day. His receiving yards have ranged from seven to 119 yards in 2014, but with QB Carson Palmer under center, Floyd has recorded 12 catches (on 17 targets) for 213 yards and two touchdowns across three games in the current campaign. With the above holding steady going forward, Floyd remains a must-start from week-to-week.

Floyd (groin) is active for Sunday's contest in Oakland, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Floyd came down with a groin injury this week, but after a limited showing in drills Wednesday, he practiced fully both Thursday and Friday. Trot him out, per usual, with success likely against a Raiders defense that has allowed 12.0 YPC and four touchdowns to opposing wide receivers through five games.

Floyd (groin) is probable for Sunday's game against Oakland.

After a limited practice Wednesday, Floyd logged full practices Thursday and Friday to close out the week. He's at or near full strength, and he's a high-upside WR2 play in most formats now that Carson Palmer (shoulder) is back.

Floyd (groin) participated fully in Thursday's practice, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Floyd's groin injury looks like it won't hold him back this week, and Friday's injury report should help confirm that evaluation. Things are trending up for Floyd, with Carson Palmer continuing to regain arm strength and a matchup with the Raiders - who got shredded by Philip Rivers last week - on the docket.

Floyd (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Despite averaging 7.2 targets per game, the Cardinals' unsettled QB situation through five contests has brought associated randomness to Floyd's week-to-week production. He salvaged a four-catch, 47-yard outing Sunday against Washington by gathering in a touchdown, when a comfortable presence, Carson Palmer (shoulder), was under center. Because Floyd's injury came out of nowhere, his activity level as the week continues will be of keen interest to his owners.

Floyd had four catches on seven targets for 47 yards and scored his first touchdown of the season in Sunday's 30-20 win over Washington.

Floyd got off to a a great start, doing most of his damage in the first quarter. From there, he took a backseat to Larry Fitzgerald, who finished with six catches for 98 yards, while also scoring his first touchdown of the season. Despite the quiet second half, Floyd owners have to be happy about the return of Carson Palmer (shoulder), who played for the first time since Week 1. While Palmer didn't take too many shots down the field, Floyd should benefit from the veteran quarterback, as he gains arm strength.

Floyd corralled just one of seven targets for seven yards in Sunday's defeat at Denver.

The quarterback didn't matter in the slightest in this one: Floyd's sole catch late in the second quarter was sandwiched between three misfires apiece from Drew Stanton and rookie Logan Thomas, who entered upon Stanton suffering a concussion just after halftime. Throughout the afternoon, the Cardinals' scheme was predictable, with nary a shot downfield, which is Floyd's specialty. Entering with a league-best 22.9 yards per reception, he may be resigned to the fact that neither Carson Palmer (shoulder) nor Stanton will be under center next Sunday against Washington. If the preceding unfolds during the week, Floyd's relevance is certain to take a hit in the short term, especially with Thomas or a veteran to be named later manning the offense.

Floyd had five receptions (nine targets) for 114 yards in Sunday's win against San Francisco.

Floyd showed a good rapport with Drew Stanton, especially on deep throws, after the duo struggled the previous week. Other than the dud in Week 2, Floyd has been tremendous, although he's still looking for his first touchdown of the year.

Floyd had one catch on six targets for 19 yards Sunday against the Giants.

While Larry Fitzgerald (six catches on 10 targets for 51 yards) seemed to have decent-enough chemistry with quarterback Drew Stanton, who was playing in place of the injured Carson Palmer (shoulder), Floyd never seemed to get on the same page. It was a dramatic decline from the five catches on seven targets for 119 yards he had in Week 1 with Palmer throwing him the ball, and he'll be looking to get his starting QB back in Week 3 against a tough 49ers defense.

Floyd caught five of his seven targets for 119 yards Monday night.

No other wideout saw more than four targets, and some of Floyd's were down the field. While Larry Fitzgerald could continue to see most of the red-zone work, Floyd is the big-play option.
