Vikings | Michael Floyd to remain on roster

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 21:18:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd will remain with the team despite receiving a one-day jail sentence, according to general manager Rick Spielman, who said that Floyd will be expected with the rest of the club at the start of training camp when players report on July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Even so, Floyd has fallen mightily over the last year and shouldn't really be considered even in the deepest of fantasy leagues. He's far down on the depth chart and it's highly unlikely he works his way into getting regular targets from Sam Bradford, especially with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen already absorbing most of the looks.

Vikings | Michael Floyd has work to do

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 20:27:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd said Thursday, June 15, that he still has plenty of work to do in order to be comfortable with the offense before training camp begins in July.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd is trying to claim the No. 3 receiver role, but even if he wins the job, he is unlikely to have any consistent value in Minnesota's limited passing attack.

Vikings | Michael Floyd contract info

Thu, 25 May 2017 23:37:03 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd's one-year deal that contains no guaranteed money, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling. That means the team has no financial commitment to Floyd should he fail to make the final cut.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd teased for years in Arizona as part of a much better passing attack. There are certainly opportunities to earn snaps in Minnesota, but it's unlikely Floyd will do enough to return meaningful value. He's best left on waivers.

Vikings | Michael Floyd will adjust quickly

Sun, 21 May 2017 19:34:23 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd won't have any issues picking up the offensive system, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Floyd earns steady playing time, he is going to have a tough time providing much fantasy value as part of a Minnesota offense that relies on shorter throws. You can leave him on the waiver wire.

Vikings | Michael Floyd to practice soon

Thu, 18 May 2017 18:49:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd will begin practicing next week after having the remainder of his 96-day house arrest transferred from Arizona to Minnesota, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd could claim the No. 3 receiver job in Minnesota, but being the third or fourth option in a dink-and-dump passing game doesn't translate to a lot of fantasy appeal. He is just a late-round flier.

Vikings | Minnesota adding Michael Floyd

Wed, 10 May 2017 12:17:10 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Patriots) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, May 10, according to sources. The deal is worth $1.5 million, but Floyd could make as much as $6 million based on incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd may receive the chance to compete for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp but probably will be the No. 4 receiver at worst. He probably will see a limited amount of targets in 2017 but could be a late-round option in some deeper leagues.

Patriots | Michael Floyd will not return to Pats

Sun, 07 May 2017 15:39:24 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Patriots) will not be re-signing with the New England Patriots this offseason, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd has been connected with a few teams this offseason and could sign in the near future. He finished last season with 488 yards and five touchdowns but only had one reception during the playoffs. He could find the job as a No. 3 receiver for a team but probably will be a late-round option at best in standard leagues.

Vikings | Vikings interested in Michael Floyd

Thu, 04 May 2017 16:36:44 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings are "highly, highly interested" in free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Patriots).

Fantasy Tip: Floyd endured the most disappointing season of his five-year career in 2016, getting cut by the only team he played for following a DUI arrest in December and finishing with just 33 catches for 446 yards. Ironically, he did manage to capture his first Super Bowl ring for his late stint with the Patriots, but other than that, his numbers were down across the board. If he were to land in Minnesota, that might be a fine spot for the 27-year-old to get his career back on track.

Patriots | Michael Floyd unlikely to return to NE

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 09:22:14 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Patriots) is a "long shot" to return to the New England Patriots after they acquired Brandin Cooks earlier this month, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd was sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days of home detention earlier this offseason as a result of his in-season extreme DUI, so the combination of that punishment and the Patriots' trade of Cooks doesn't leave much room for him. It looks like Floyd could be waiting until training camp before he finds a home, if even then.
