2015 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Jan-09-2016 by Shawn Childs
Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Floyd played through a hamstring injury in Week 12, leading to WR3 snaps (51) and a short opportunity (one catches for 14 yards and two targets). He has two 100-yard receiving games with five TDs. He remains limited with his hamstring issue, but he is expected to play. In Week 4 he had five catches for 59 yards on seven targets against the Rams. Possible edge, but he health invites failure risk.
Following his breakthrough 2013 season in which he caught 65 passes for 1,041 yards and five scores, Michael was being drafted as a WR2 and ahead of Fitzgerald in some leagues. He delivered two 100-yard games over his first three starts of 2014. Then he was pretty much a train wreck the rest of the way (28 catches on 65 targets for 436 yards and four TDs). He was even completely shut out in two of those contests. For the second time in three seasons, Michael delivered an elite game in Week 17 against the 49ers (eight catches for 153 yards and two TDs in 2013; eight catches for 166 yards and one TD in 2012). His catch rate dropped from 57.5 percent to 47.5 percent in 2014 due to the Cardinals' injury mess at quarterback. In addition, John Brown became a factor in the offense. Floyd has settled into the big-play WR (17.9 yards per catch last year). He has talent, but there probably isn't room in this offense for three wide receivers to have consistent Fantasy success. I expect Floyd to get about six targets per game, which probably works out to about 55 catches for 800-plus yards and a handful of TDs. I don't see him as starter in Fantasy, but he'll have occasional value at the flex position when he has a favorable matchup.

|7.05||Scout Fantasy - @mattkdelima - Maybe I'm still sipping the Kool-Aid, but I believe in Floyd's talent. Also seems obvious to me that Larry Fitzgerald is a shell of his former self, which should push Floyd into more targets. (Comments Added Wed Aug 5 12:31:36 a.m. ET 2015)|
