We don't usually put much stock in spring puff pieces, but there's been a buzz about Cardinals WR Michael Floyd over the past couple weeks. QB Carson Palmer recently added to that. “The way Mike Floyd is playing just jumped out at me," Palmer said. “I have very high expectations for Mike this year." Floyd broke out for a 65-1,041-5 line last year. Just entering his 3rd NFL season, he's capable of even more in 2014.
Floyd will play Week 12
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) will play against the 49ers today. He put in 3 limited practices this week. There's always the risk of re-injury, but the plus matchup gets Floyd safely into WR3 territory in the Week 12 rankings.
Floyd questionable for Week 12
Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the 49ers. He was limited in practice all week, but insider Darren Urban expects him to play. We might not find out for sure until 3 pm ET on Sunday, though. If active, Floyd will be a risk/reward WR3 with that hammy issue.
Floyd back at practice Wednesday
Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday for the 1st time since going down in Week 10. It puts him on track to play against the 49ers this weekend, although he'd be a safer fantasy play if he puts in a full practice at some point this week.
Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Bengals. He wouldn’t have been a recommended fantasy start even if he suited up. Hopefully the week off gets him back to 100%. Jaron Brown figures to step in as Arizona’s #3 WR.
Floyd "limited at best" for Week 11
ESPN's Adam Schefter says the Cardinals are "not as optimistic" about WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) as they are about John Brown. Brown is expected to play through his hamstring issue, but Floyd will be "limited at best," per Schefter. This report, plus the Cardinals-Bengals 8:25 pm ET kickoff, means Floyd should be on fantasy benches.
