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.

Patriots | Michael Floyd gets jail sentence

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 13:00:17 -0800

New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd was sentenced Friday, Feb. 17, after pleading guilty to his extreme DUI charge. He will have to spend 120 days in jail, 24 of which to be served in Maricopa County Jail and the other 96 to be served under house arrest. In addition, Floyd must pay a $5,115 fine and complete 30 hours of community service. The other six charges against him were dismissed.

Fantasy Tip: It's been a significant fall from grace for Floyd, someone who was flirting with regular WR2 status in many leagues as recent as the 2015 season. The former Cardinal will serve all of his jail time during the offseason, but he's also an impending free agent that will be facing a suspension from the NFL as well, not to mention the fact he's coming off a down campaign. Floyd has ways to go to become fantasy relevant again.

Patriots | NE would like to bring back Michael Floyd

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 00:47:33 -0800

The New England Patriots would like to bring back WR Michael Floyd for the 2017 season, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: He was inactive for the Super Bowl, but reports indicate the Patriots kept four receivers so they wouldn't be short on special teams or with their red-zone offense. Floyd may be a WR2 or WR3 at best next year thanks to the Pats' plethora of options.
