|Given his combination of size (6í3Ē, 225 pounds), speed and production in at Notre Dame, Floyd was considered the wide receiver prospect with the most upside coming out of this yearís draft. However, character concerns caused him to be drafted behind Justin Blackmon and he was selected 13th overall by the Cardinals. While Arizonaís 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 teamís 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 teamís issues at quarterback.
| Carson Palmer likely to start for Cardinals -- Sun Oct 12 8:32 am --|
Missed passed three games with nerve injury
|Big news for the Cardinals: QB Carson Palmer is slated to get the start for them, his first game back from a nerve injury. (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: The team is expected to make a decision on Palmer a couple hours before the game but it appears he will start if all goes well. Palmer won't be 100 percent but his presence will help a Cardinals passing game that ranks 29th in the league. Michael Floyd had five catches for 119 yards with Palmer as the starting QB in Week 1.
| Carson Palmer Out, Drew Stanton will start at QB -- Sun Sep 14 10:03 am --|
|Source: Cardinals QB Carson Palmer will not play today. He tested his shoulder out and couldnít go. Itís Drew Stanton. (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Palmer was limited in practice this week due to a nerve issue in his shoulder. Pregame warmups didn't go so well so Stanton gets the call. This move is a downgrade to the fantasy values of Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd.
