Floyd pleaded guilty to extreme DUI and began serving a 24-day sentence at Maricopa County Jail on Thursday, FOX 10 Phoenix reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd was charged with seven counts, including extreme DUI and failure to obey a policy officer after he was found passed out behind the wheel of his car at a Scottsdale, Arizona intersection in December. The receiver was released by the Cardinals immediately after that incident, but later signed with the Patriots for the remainder of the season. Following his sentencing, Floyd will serve 24 days behind bars before spending 96 days on house arrest. He'll also be required to pay a $5,000 fine, perform community service and attend an alcohol abuse class. While discipline from the NFL also potentially awaits, so too does Floyd's unrestricted free agency this offseason.

Floyd is inactive for Sunday's Super Bowl LI against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots will roll with four wideouts, including Chris Hogan (thigh) and Malcolm Mitchell (knee), in this season-capping contest. As an impending unrestricted free agent, Floyd will certainly have an interesting offseason on his hands, especially if the NFL decides to rule on the DUI that precipitated his release from the Cardinals in December.

Floyd is expected to be a healthy scratch for Sunday's Super Bowl LI against the Falcons, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd was similarly deemed expendable in the AFC championship game with rookie wide receiver Malcolm Floyd able to return from a knee injury. Although both Mitchell and Chris Hogan (thigh) are questionable for the Super Bowl, the duo is expected to be available on the active roster, relegating Floyd to street clothes due to the need for bodies on special teams and at the goal line, to name two scenarios. Whether the preceding forecasts Floyd's lack of potential to stick in New England as a free agent remains to be seen, but the Patriots will likely be working without the veteran Sunday.

Floyd is inactive for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

With Malcolm Mitchell back in action, Floyd is the odd man out Sunday, with Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola also in the team's wideout mix against Pittsburgh.

Floyd caught one of his three targets for nine yards in Saturday's playoff win over the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

With fellow wideout Chris Hogan banged up, Floyd ended up seeing action on 44 of the Patriots' 69 snaps on offense, but his results were decidedly mixed in the contest. The 2012 first-rounder finished up the 2016 regular season with 37 catches on 77 targets for 488 yards and five TDs in 15 contests, including 13 with the Cardinals and is slated to become an unrestricted free agent once the Patriots' postseason run is complete.

In his second game with the Patriots, Floyd saw action on 49 of a possible 67 offensive snaps in Sunday's 35-14 win over the Dolphins, while hauling in three catches on four targets for 36 yards and a TD.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd's profile in the Patriots' Week 17 offense increased due to injuries that sidelined fellow wideouts Malcolm Mitchell and Danny Amendola. The 2012 first-rounder thus finishes up the 2016 regular season with 37 catches on 77 targets for 488 yards and five TDs in 15 games, including 13 with the Cardinals. How much action Floyd sees in the postseason, in tandem with Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan, is linked to the health of Mitchell and Amendola, but Floyd has, in any case, demonstrated that he can be useful asset in the team's playoff run.

Floyd hauled in one of his two targets while seeing action on 18 of 75 snaps on offense in Saturday's 41-3 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd gives the Patriots added wideout depth as the team approaches the postseason, but he remains behind Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell in the team's wideout pecking order for now.

Floyd will make his Patriots debut Saturday against the Jets, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The recently acquired Floyd is set to take the field Saturday after logging three full practices during the week and familiarizing himself with the new playbook. That said, it's unlikely that Floyd will see significant snaps Saturday against the Jets. Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, and Malcolm Mitchell figure to see the bulk of the snaps and targets Saturday.

Floyd, who has been practicing with the Patriots since last Friday, could make his debut with the team Saturday against the Jets, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

In such a scenario, we'd expect Floyd to be eased into the Patriots offense, so a wait-and-see approach would be in order from a fantasy perspective. The report also notes that down the road, Floyd could potentially face jail time if he's convicted on charges in the wake of his Dec. 12 DUI arrest in Scottsdale, Arizona. Regarding that matter, the wideout's first court appearance is slated to occur after the NFL season, when Floyd has a pretrial hearing set for Feb. 24.

Floyd is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Though Floyd traveled with the Patriots to Denver for Sunday's game, he wasn't expected to suit up, with limited practice reps with the team under his belt since being claimed off waivers from the Cardinals earlier in the week. The 2012 first-rounder gives New England added wideout depth as the postseason approaches, but Floyd is clearly behind Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell on the team's depth chart for now.
