Entering the 2013 season, there was some question over which Arizona Cardinals backup wide receiver would get more attention - Michael Floyd or Andre Roberts. Six games into the season, Floyd has set himself far ahead of Roberts, and will look to continue that trend Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks.
Larry Fitzgerald is still the team's clear No. 1 receiver, with 405 yards and four touchdowns on the season. Floyd, meanwhile, has almost as many yards as Fitzgerald, sitting at 345 yards, but only has one score. Roberts has been held to 150 yards, and has yet to find the end zone. Floyd's touchdown came Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.
Fantasy impact: Floyd has yet to have a huge-yardage game this year, topping out at 87 receiving yards on the year. He has three games under 50 yards, but overall is averaging 13.3 yards per reception on the year.
Thursday, though, with Fitzgerald possibly banged up, there's a definite chance Floyd becomes quarterback Carson Palmer's top target. Even facing a tough Seahawks defense, Floyd could be a viable WR3/flex option.
