Description: Arizona wide receiver Michael Floyd was temporary starter Drew Stanton's favorite target seeing catching 5-of-9 targets for 114 yards.
Insight: Floyd appears to be the number one option in Arizona's passing attack ahead of veteran Larry Fitzgerald bouncing back from a disappointing Week 2 effort for his second 100-yard game in three contests.
 
9/16/2014 3:47:00 PM
Description: Arizona wide receiver Michael Floyd had a down week during Sunday's victory over the Giants.
Insight: He had only one catch for 19 yards, but did have six targets. Floyd is now the number one option in Arizona's passing attack, but for however long Drew Stanton is under center, his production will be inconsistent. Floyd is still a WR2 moving forward.

Description: ESPN New York expects Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to shadow Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd.
Insight: That means Larry Fitzgerald will draw Walter Thurmond and Prince Amukamara covering him. It does not really change our expectations for Floyd this week, he is the No. 6 ranked WR for Week 2, but it proves that Floyd will likely have to deal with the opposition's top corner going forward.

Description: According to Dan Pompei of Sportsonearth.com, some in Cardinals camp think Michael Floyd will be the Cardinals' No. 1 receiver this season.
Insight: Floyd quietly had 1,041 yards to lead the team last season while Larry Fitzgerald, who turns 31 on Aug. 31, had 954 yards, though Fitzgerald had 10 touchdowns to Floyd's five. Now in his third season, the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Floyd is in for a monster year.

Description: According to ESPN's John Clayton, Arizona receiver Michael Floyd isn't in danger of missing Sunday's game against Tennessee despite re-injuring his ankle in last week's win over St. Louis.
Insight: Floyd (56 catches, 886 yards, 4 TD) is closing in on his first 1,000-yard receiving season. He's posted at least 95 yards in three of his last four contests.
 
12/11/2013 3:10:00 PM
Description: Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd (ankle) missed Wednesday's practice.
Insight: Floyd aggravated his ankle injury in Week 14 against the Rams and had just 26 yards on two catches after reeling in 18 balls for 396 yards and two touchdowns the previous three games. The Titans were torched by Peyton Manning and Denver's receivers in Week 14, but their cornerbacks have been very good this season.
 
12/5/2013 2:38:00 PM
Description: Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd was back at practice Thursday despite nagging shoulder and ankle pain that kept him off the field yesterday.
Insight: Floyd finished with 99 yards and a touchdown on five catches last week and has been a huge asset over the past three games. He's a solid WR2 versus St. Louis.
 
Hot12/1/2013 5:39:00 PM
Description: Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd came within one yard of his third straight 100-yard game in Week 13 at Philadelphia.
Insight: Floyd finished with 99 yards and a touchdown on five catches, which fantasy owners will happily take. The second-year wideout has been targeted 28 times over the past three games after seeing 6.3 targets per game the first nine games. He now has 54 catches for 860 yards and four scores.
 
11/17/2013 5:08:00 PM
Description: Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd (sprained right shoulder) caught a 91-yard touchdown pass Sunday against Jacksonville and finished with six catches for 193 yards.
Insight: Floyd wasn't affected at all by his shoulder injury. Of course, it helped that he was playing Jacksonville. Arizona's No. 2 wideout entered Week 11 with zero 100-yard games and two touchdowns this season.
 
11/17/2013 12:32:00 PM
Description: Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd (sprained right shoulder) is active Sunday against Jacksonville.
Insight: Floyd has had a few decent weeks but has not sustained fantasy value as Arizona's No. 2 receiver. He's on pace for 64 catches, 825 yards and three touchdowns.
 
11/15/2013 10:09:00 AM
Description: Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd (sprained right shoulder) said he expects to play Sunday.
Insight: Floyd hasn't proven to be much of a fantasy asset yet, but he is the team's second most targeted receiver this season (57 targets).
 
11/11/2013 2:35:00 PM
Description: Cardinals wideout Michael Floyd suffered a sprained right shoulder, but Coach Bruce Arians is calling him day-to-day
Insight: if Floyd can't go, Andre Roberts would be the guy opposite Larry Fitzgerald. Roberts had a team-high five catches for 72 yards and a touchdown.
 
8/6/2013 4:51:00 PM
Description: As expected, the Cardinals have Michael Floyd listed ahead of Andre Roberts on the depth chart.
Insight: Floyd was taken 13th overall by the Cardinals in the 2012 NFL Draft but was behind Roberts for most of the season. He did have eight catches for 166 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 to finish with 45 receptions, 562 yards and two scores in his rookie year. With Bruce Arians' vertical offense in place and Carson Palmer under center, it should be a bounce-back year for Arizona's passing attack, and Floyd is definitely a breakout candidate.
 
5/15/2013 5:13:00 PM
Description: Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd has been running ahead of Andre Roberts so far in OTAs, according to the Arizona Republic.
Insight: Floyd was taken 13th overall by the Cardinals in the 2012 NFL Draft but was behind Roberts for most of the season. He did have eight catches for 166 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 to finish with 45 receptions, 562 yards and two scores in his rookie year. With Bruce Arians' vertical offense in place and Carson Palmer under center, it should be a bounce-back year for Arizona's passing attack.
 
12/30/2012 7:34:00 PM
Description: Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd came into the final game of his rookie season with just 396 yards; he left with 562 after catching eight balls for 166 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the 49ers.
Insight: Floyd was taken 13th overall by the Cardinals in the 2012 NFL Draft but didn't make much of an impact all season. Sunday's performance provides some hope that he'll contribute more in 2013.
 
11/14/2012 11:38:00 AM
Description: Arizona Cardinals rookie wideout Michael Floyd is expected to see his playing time increase now that the Cardinals have had their bye week to make changes, according to a report in AzCardinals.com.
Insight: Before the bye he was sitting behind Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts and Early Doucet. It appears that Roberts will move to the slot and Floyd will play on the outside opposite Fitzgerald. Doucet is now the odd man out.
 
11/5/2012 1:36:00 PM
Description: Arizona Cardinals rookie wideout Michael Floyd will see his playing time increase, according to coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Insight: At this point we can't see Floyd getting enough opportunities to have any fantasy value this season. He's still sitting behind Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts and Early Doucet. And of course his quarterback is either John Skelton or Kevin Kolb.
 
7/19/2012 10:41:00 PM
Description: Arizona Cardinals rookie wideout Michael Floyd will likely start the season as the team's No. 4 receiver behind Andre Roberts and slot receiver Early Doucet, the Arizona Republic reports.
Insight: While we expect Floyd to get plenty of reps with the first-team offense eventually, this news makes him a fringe draft pick at best, even in 12-team leagues.
 
6/19/2012 2:15:00 PM
Description: Arizona Cardinals rookie wideout Michael Floyd is expected to eventually win the job opposite Larry Fitzgerald, but that may not happen in time for the season opener.
Insight: Floyd, who Cris Carter called the most "NFL-ready rookie receiver" will have to beat out Andre Roberts who gained the team's confidence with a good second half of 2011. Over the final nine games Roberts caught 38 balls for 453 yards and two scores.
 
6/5/2012 12:20:00 PM
Description: Arizona Cardinals Michael Floyd is getting praise from head coach Ken Whisenhunt. "He's worked hard," Whisenhunt said. "That's one of the things we liked about him."
Insight: Floyd will likely start from Week 1 opposite superstar wideout Larry Fitzgerald. Floyd, who Cris Carter called the most "NFL-ready rookie receiver" could possibly become a 1,000-yard receiver in his first year given all the attention to Fitzgerald. He has the talent, it will depend on the quality of the quarterback play.
