  Vikings | Michael Floyd activated    Mon Oct 9, 02:59 PM

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.

Footballguys view: RB Stevan Ridley was released to make room for Floyd on the roster. There might not be much of a role for Floyd this week or moving forward as he's buried on the Vikings depth chart. Their passing game is all about WR Stefon Diggs, WR Adam Thielen and TE Kyle Rudolph. Floyd will compete with Laquon Treadwell for the no3 WR spot on the depth chart.

  Vikings | Michael Floyd on suspended list    Sat Sep 2, 04:52 PM

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

Footballguys view: Floyd went back home to Minnesota after a 2016 season that saw him bounce from the Cardinals to the Patriots after he was arrested for an 'extreme' DUI. When he's off the suspended list, we're not expecting Floyd to do too much for the Vikings.

  Vikings | Michael Floyd standing out    Sat Aug 5, 11:40 AM

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.

Footballguys view: It seems like rookie and second year receivers are always on the outside looking in over in Minnesota. Laquon Treadwell had very little production last year, while Floyd had some nice moments. There has been plenty of back and forth this offseason about which receiver will get the nod, and this is a camp battle to watch. Keep in mind Floyd is suspended for the first four games of the season, so Treadwell will get his inseason chance to shine regardless of preseason.

  Vikings | Jarius Wright's roster spot in danger?    Fri Jul 21, 02:34 AM

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.

Footballguys view: We've liked Wright but he's never really been more than an occasionally productive player in both the NFL and fantasy. As it stands, he's a nice but easily replaceable piece of the offense and even if he makes the team, remains a fantasy non-factor.

  Cardinals | John Brown ready for big season?    Sun Jul 16, 12:31 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Brown is going to be the Cardinals no2 WR opposite Larry Fitzgerald in 2017 and there should be more buzz about him. He had a lingering concussion and complications from sickle cell anemia that limited him during his 15 starts in 2016. He's at full strength now, and Brown should build on his 2015 season of 65 catches, 1,003 yards, and 7 touchdowns. He's WR42 (9.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Vikings | Michael Floyd receives suspension    Fri Jul 14, 04:18 PM

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

Footballguys view: With this suspension, there's no guarantee the Vikings will keep Floyd around. He was terrible last year splitting time in Arizona and New England. An extreme DUI last year got him bounced from the desert but the Patriots took a chance on the veteran receiver and he did nothing.

  Vikings | Michael Floyd to remain on roster    Tue Jun 27, 12:18 AM

  Vikings | Michael Floyd has work to do    Fri Jun 16, 11:27 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Floyd needed a fresh start after his 'extreme DUI' last year which led to his release with the Cardinals. He didn't do much in his time with the Patriots after that and now comes home to Minnesota. Floyd has veteran experience, but he's fourth (at best) on the Vikings depth chart.

  Vikings | Michael Floyd contract info    Fri May 26, 02:37 AM

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.

Footballguys view: The Vikings had to structure his deal this way. Floyd got bounced from the Cardinals after his "extreme DUI" last year and did nothing with the Patriots when they picked him up late in the season. Going back home to Minnesota should help him, but the team wasn't going to throw around money carelessly for a player with Floyd's backstory.

  Vikings | Michael Floyd will adjust quickly    Sun May 21, 10:34 PM

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

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited here. Floyd did nothing with the Patriots after they picked him off the scrap heap in 2016. A fresh start is what he needed, and perhaps going back home to Minnesota will pay off for him. Floyd is trying to earn a role behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.

  Vikings | Michael Floyd to practice soon    Thu May 18, 09:49 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Floyd is back home in Minnesota, and it might be the answer after hitting rock bottom last year with this "extreme DUI" that caused him to be under house arrest. If healthy and motivated, Floyd can push for a role behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.

  Vikings | Minnesota adding Michael Floyd    Wed May 10, 03:17 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The Vikings were the only team interested in Floyd this offseason after his brief stint with the Patriots last year. Floyd will not be able to report to the team until June as he's still under house arrest for his DUI. He's from St. Paul Minnesota, so perhaps going home will be the fresh start he needs after a tumultuous 2016. Floyd is not a lock for the 53-man roster.

  Patriots | Michael Floyd will not return to Pats    Sun May 7, 06:39 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The Patriots made the move to add Brandin Cooks via free agency, so they don't have any room to take another flier on Floyd like they did last year. Floyd didn't do much of anything for the Patriots last year and was mostly inactive as they made their run to a championship. Only Washington and the Vikings have shown interest in Floyd this offseason.

  Vikings | Vikings interested in Michael Floyd    Thu May 4, 07:36 PM

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

Footballguys view: Floyd has gotten zero interest on the open market after his short-lived stint with the Patriots last year. He was with the Pats for their Super Bowl run last year, but Floyd did nothing to write home about. Floyd hit the open market in March, and teams just weren't that interested. The Vikings don't have great depth at the receiver position, and that may be why they're 'highly, highly interested' in the big-bodied veteran.

  Patriots | Michael Floyd unlikely to return to NE    Fri Mar 24, 12:22 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The Pats have found their top WR via trade with New Orleans. Floyd has no interest on the open market at this time. Perhaps as we get closer to training camp a team like the Lions would come calling.

  Patriots | Michael Floyd gets jail sentence    Fri Feb 17, 04:00 PM

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.

  Patriots | NE would like to bring back Michael Floyd    Mon Feb 6, 03:47 AM

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

Footballguys view: Floyd would draw huge money on the free agent market if he was more productive and stayed off of the police blotter. The Patriots can get a big discount because Floyd is at the bottom of his career and they showed interest when the rest of the league didn't. If they can turn around his career, he'll be a huge value.

  Patriots | Michael Floyd expected to be inactive    Sun Feb 5, 03:11 PM

New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd is expected to be a healthy scratch for Super Bowl LI.

Footballguys view: The acquisition of Floyd for the last three games of the regular season was more to get a chance to evaluate him and pocket a discount on a new deal for a first-round quality physical talent than his ability to contribute this year. Floyd has recently expressed that he wants to stay in Foxboro.

  Patriots | Michael Floyd wants to re-up with Pats    Fri Feb 3, 09:57 AM

New England Patriots impending free-agent WR Michael Floyd said he wants to re-sign with the Patriots in the offseason.

Footballguys view: The Patriots were willing to give Floyd a chance and that is something will be factored into his free agency decision. He has true #1 wide receiver ability even if he hasn't shown it consistently in over a year. The Patriots shrewd personnel moves are going to pay off again.

New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd likely will serve as the No. 4 receiver for the Patriots if WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is not able to play in the Divisional round playoff game.

Footballguys view: The Patriots have a plethora of weapons, and having Floyd on the field is an option. They'll have Danny Amendola out there too.

New England Patriots WR Michael Floyd will travel with the team for their Week 15 game, but head coach Bill Belichick would not say if Floyd will be active for the game.

Footballguys view: The Patriots could have a small group of plays in place for Floyd if he does play against the Broncos. Either way, the Broncos have had to prepare for the newest Patriots WR as he did travel to the Mile High City. If Floyd is active, he is unlikely to have a role that makes him fantasy relevant.

  Cardinals | Arizona cuts Michael Floyd    Wed Dec 14, 03:22 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd was released Wednesday, Dec. 14. The team also signed free-agent WR Jeremy Ross (Jets). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Floyd was arrested for a DUI earlier this week, and the Cardinals decided to part ways with him. A free agent in 2017, Floyd hasn't done himself any favors with poor play on the field and another DUI (he had one in college at Notre Dame). The Cardinals move on and J.J. Nelson should see a bump without Floyd on the field.

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd was arrested early Monday, Dec. 12. Floyd was found asleep at the wheel of his car while it was running, and he was subsequently arrested on two counts of DUI and one count of "obstructing a roadway and failure to obey a police officer."

Footballguys view: This is his second DUI arrest as he had one coming out of Notre Dame. Floyd may face a team suspension this week, and league action is likely coming in the future once the legal process is done. A free agent in 2017, Floyd isn't doing himself any favors on or off the field.

Updating a previous story, Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) will be a game-time decision in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Footballguys view: Floyd can't be trusted with the hamstring issue popping up mid-week and his struggles building any momentum this season. John Brown and JJ Nelson haven't been able to generate good games back-to-back this year either, so Larry Fitzgerald is the only Cardinals receiver we should play in a matchup that is promising from a fantasy perspective.
