Vikings | Michael Floyd leaves game

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 12:39:05 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd (calf) suffered a calf injury in Week 6 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd recorded only one reception for five yards in the game and his status for Week 7 is uncertain at this point. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Floyd most weeks.

Vikings | Michael Floyd will start in Week 6

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 09:15:22 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd is in the starting lineup against the Green Bay Packers in place of WR Stefon Diggs (groin).

Fantasy Tip: Floyd made his season debut last week and finished with one catches for 19 yards. He should receive more targets this week and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but could also be avoided if owners have better options available.

Vikings | Michael Floyd activated

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 11:59:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd, who was the first four games of the season due to suspension, was added to the roster Monday, Oct. 9, and is expected to play Monday, Oct. 9, versus the Chicago Bears. RB Stevan Ridley was released to make room for Floyd on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have a stranglehold on the starting receiver jobs in Minnesota, so if Floyd contributes much tonight, it will likely be inside the red zone. His size gives him something the offense doesn't otherwise have. Floyd can be ignored in fantasy for now.

Vikings | Michael Floyd finishes suspension

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 23:13:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd is eligible to return to the active roster after serving his four-game suspension. He's expected to practice with the team Thursday, Oct. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a tough situation at quarterback, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have more than held their own, sitting first and third, respectively, in receiving yardage through four games. That probably caps Floyd's ceiling as the team's No. 3 receiver, which doesn't figure to have appreciable fantasy value. As such, there's no reason to make a move on Floyd this week.

Vikings | Michael Floyd on suspended list

Sat, 02 Sep 2017 13:52:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd was placed on the Reserve/Suspended list Saturday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd will miss the first four games of the season and it is uncertain what role he will have when he returns. Owners can pass on Floyd during drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option during the season.

Vikings | Michael Floyd standing out

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 08:40:03 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd has reportedly received "plenty of work" in the team's top three-receiver package with Laquon Treadwell missing time this week and taken advantage, making several impressive sideline catches after separating from defensive backs in 1-on-1 drills on Friday, Aug. 4. "(He's looked) pretty dang good. He's made probably the most contested of anybody in the camp. He's a big, physical body, which helps in the run game, and I think he's done a nice job in the routes. Some of the routes, he's a little faster than he looks," head coach Mike Zimmer said.

Fantasy Tip: Treadwell had reportedly been running with the ones since the spring, so maybe Floyd's "rebirth" this week will change that a bit. Regardless, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen are locked in as starters, meaning Floyd would be mostly a situational deep threat once he serves his four-game suspension to begin the season. He can be left undrafted in most leagues.

Vikings | Jarius Wright's roster spot in danger?

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 23:34:18 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Jarius Wright is no lock to make the team, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling, following the offseason signing of WR Michael Floyd and the selection of rookie WRs Rodney Adams and Stacy Coley in the draft. Wright signed a four-year extension before the 2015 campaign and carries a cap number of $3.138 million for the upcoming season.

Cardinals | John Brown ready for big season?

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 21:31:18 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown will be the main beneficiary of the departure of Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd, according to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo! Sports. Floyd accounted for 88 targets for the Cardinals last season.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was a 1,000-yard receiver in 2015, and now that he is healthy and the No. 2 option behind Larry Fitzgerald, WR3 protection is a good bet.

Vikings | Michael Floyd receives suspension

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 13:18:40 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd has been suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd has had some off the field problems over the last year and will miss the first month of the season because of the suspension. Floyd had some value when he signed with the Vikings but probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues now. Adam Thielen could see more targets this season and can be a No. 3 receiver in leagues.

Vikings | Michael Floyd will be cut if lying

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 14:36:39 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd will be released if the Vikings determine that he lied about not drinking alcohol before failing three Breathalyzer tests in June. In a sworn affidavit, Floyd said he had consumed a hefty amount of kombucha tea -- a health drink that contains alcohol.
