|Draft: 2012 Round 1 (13)
College: Notre Dame
Ht: 6’3” Wt: 225 DOB: 1989-11-27 Age: 25
|Given his combination of size (6’3”, 225 pounds), speed and production in at Notre Dame, Floyd was considered the wide receiver prospect with the most upside coming out of this year’s draft. However, character concerns caused him to be drafted behind Justin Blackmon and he was selected 13th overall by the Cardinals. While Arizona’s plan is to eventually pair Floyd with Larry Fitzgerald giving the team a pair of big, talented wide receivers, it appears that plan will not take hold by opening day. While Floyd may have the most upside of any of the challengers to start opposite Fitzgerald, off-season reports indicate that he has struggled to learn the team’s playbook and is likely to enter the season behind Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts and Early Doucet on the depth chart. If that happens, Floyd will be worth monitoring on the waiver wire in redraft formats. In dynasty leagues, Floyd is an outstanding prospect whose only issues would be playing alongside a top five receiver in Fitzgerald and the team’s issues at quarterback.

Missed practice all week with hamstring injury
|Cards expect WR John Brown (hamstring-Q) to play vs. Cincy; not as optimistic about WR Michael Floyd (hammy-Q), who at best will be limited. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Floyd didn't practice all week and is a candidate to be inactive. Even if he does play tonight against the Bengals, he won't be a recommended fantasy option. John Brown is in play but his "decoy" the last two games makes him a risky proposition as well.

Cardinals receivers battling hamstring injuries
|Arians says Floyd will be game time call. Floyd experienced enough to play without practicing. John brown also game time. (Kent Somers on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Michael Floyd (hamstring) hasn't practiced all week. It's likely he'll end up on the Inactive list. John Brown (hamstring) has played in the last two games but has been nothing more than a decoy. Jaron Brown will see more targets if either one of the starter sits.

FF Today's Take: Floyd missed Wednesday's practice as well. We won't know Floyd's true availability until later in the week but owners should be looking for other options in Week 11.

Cardinals receivers dealing with hamstring injuries
|In open part of AZCardinals practice, I didn't see G Iupati, G Cooper, WR Michael Floyd, WR John Brown, DT Redding, LB Markus Golden. #CINvsAZ (Darren Urban on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Floyd injured his hamstring late in Week 10 and was replaced by Jaron Brown. Both are likely to be listed as Questionable this week.

Cardinals' WR recovering from finger dislocation surgery

FF Today's Take: Floyd's absence Sunday would make teammates Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown a little more valuable. Owners of the Cardinals' WRs would be wise to keep an eye on injury updates leading up to kickoff Sunday.
