|It has been quite some time since a quality receiving option has lined up opposite Larry Fitzgerald in Arizona, but the duo of Fitzgerald and third-year wide receiver Michael Floyd have many remembering the old days of Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. Floyd is a 6’2″, 220 lb beast who possesses truly elite skills at the wide receiver position. While it took him a year to really get things going, he really seemed to catch on in the second half of the 2014 season when he averaged over 82 yards per game over the final seven games of the season. If he were able to stay on this pace, Floyd would certainly overtake Fitzgerald as the top fantasy target in the Arizona passing game, which may happen anyway due to his youth and the fact that he sees significantly less defensive attention than Fitzgerald. With Floyd going off the board around 28th at wide receiver, the upside is gigantic here. Some may point to Floyd’s five touchdowns in 2013 as being a disappointing part of his game, but remember that he scored a total of 21 touchdowns in his junior and senior seasons at Notre Dame. The skills are there. He just needs more opportunities.
Comment: A fantasy star on the rise. Averaged 16.0 yards per catch last season.
| Larry Fitzgerald unlikely to play|
Knee injury, gametime decision

|"It would take a miracle" for Larry Fitzgerald to play. Currently a game-time decision. (Ian Rapoport via Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Fitzgerald missed practice this week and will likely be on the Inactive list when the Cardinals play the Seahawks in a late- afternoon game. Michael Floyd and John Brown would be the starting receivers if Fitzgerald sits.
| Carson Palmer likely to start for Cardinals|
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)|
FFToday'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|
By: Mike Krueger | 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)|
FFToday'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.
