Michael Floyd WR ARI 1 Month

The Arizona Republic says Michael Floyd "understood where he was supposed to be and when to be there" and "caught nearly everything thrown his way" during OTAs and minicamp.

Top beat writer Kent Somers has literally sounded the fantasy alarm on Floyd. Coming off a 65-1041-5 season, the stars are aligning for a bigger breakout in Year 3. Aging Larry Fitzgerald has been reduced to an underneath, possession kind of role while the 24-year-old Floyd is ascending. The physically imposing former first-round pick has been the unquestioned star of Cardinals' offseason practices.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer had nothing but praise for Michael Floyd, saying his play "jumped out" during OTAs.

"I have very high expectations for Mike this year," Palmer said. Exceedingly complimentary comments can usually be dismissed this time of year, but the fact that these comments came unprompted is evidence this was simply Palmer's genuine reaction to Floyd's stellar play. Floyd looks poised to build on his breakout 2013 campaign and can be safely viewed as a high-upside WR2.

According to the Arizona Republic, Michael Floyd was the "most impressive" player in Cardinals OTAs.

Per reporter Kent Somers, Floyd "caught everything," even doing work against Patrick Peterson. It would be concerning if a former first-round receiver didn't stand out in pad-less practices, but it certainly doesn't sound like Floyd is resting on the laurels of his breakout 2013. Floyd is a high-upside WR2.

OC Harold Goodwin expects the addition of Ted Ginn to help Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald.

With Rob Housler and Andre Roberts functioning as secondary options in the passing game last season, deep speed was missing. Ginn brings the ability to threaten defenses over the top every time he's on the field. It projects to keep safeties occupied more often, therefore opening up the middle of the field for the physically imposing Floyd and Fitz to do damage. Still just 24 years old and coming off a 65-1041-5 season, Floyd is scratching the surface of his upside.

Coach Bruce Arians said Michael Floyd made "great strides" in his second NFL season.

Despite playing through ankle and shoulder woes for much of the season, Floyd played in all 16 games and led the Cardinals in receiving yards (1,041), catches for 20+ yards (17) and yards per reception (16.0). The 24-year-old physical freak is capable of much, much more -- especially under the guidance of passing game savant Arians. "I think Michael is starting to reach his potential," Arians said. "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."

Michael Floyd caught one pass for 31 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 upset at Seattle.

Floyd was extremely quiet all game as he saw tons of Richard Sherman and lost. On most of his five targets, he was just trying to break up interceptions. He also had a touchdown called by back an offensive pass interference call. But with under three minutes left and the Cardinals down 10-9, Floyd found himself in 1-on-1 coverage with Byron Maxwell and Carson Palmer let a jump ball fly. Floyd batted the ball to himself as Maxwell held his arm and somehow came down with it for a game-winner. He has another tough matchup against the 49ers in Week 17.

Michael Floyd (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Floyd is ahead of where he was last week, where he failed to get in a full practice before suiting up against the Titans. He's going to be active for Week 16, but will be hard to trust as a WR3 at less than 100 percent against Seattle's elite secondary.

Michael Floyd (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Floyd has played through the ankle issue the past two weeks, and he's registered just four catches for 59 yards. He's a borderline WR3/4 this week at Seattle.

Michael Floyd (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 15, but is expected to play against the Titans.

Floyd was limited in Thursday and Friday's workouts. Set to play through injury in a difficult matchup with Tennessee's smothering perimeter coverage, Floyd is more WR3 roll of the dice than WR2 in the fantasy semifinals.

Michael Floyd (ankle) got in "some" work in the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media.

It appears Floyd will be slapped with a "limited" tag after being a DNP on Wednesday. It does very little to clear up his Week 15 status. Ultimately, Floyd could be a game-time decision against the Titans after aggravating his injury in last week's win over the Rams. His status will be updated no later than Friday afternoon.
