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 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.
