Michael Floyd explodes on Sunday, strong fantasy finish coming?

USA TODAY Sports

Michael Floyd had a career game against the Jaguars on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd had a career day against the Jaguars on Sunday, catching six balls for 193 yards and a score on 11 targets.

Already playing well, Floyd caught a 91-yard touchdown from Carson Palmer in the third quarter to give him eye-popping numbers. The former first-round pick out of Notre Dame had just 163 yards receiving combined over his previous four games.

Fantasy impact: Obviously, a 91-yard TD is going to inflate a player's stats, but even without that catch, Floyd still had a 100-yard day. His previous season high was just 87 yards and he was never targeted more than 10 times, caught more than five balls and only had two TDs prior to coming into this game.

The Cardinals run mostly two-wide sets, so the snaps have not really been an issue. Arizona just doesn't put up enough points in most games. That said, they have developed a running game and this is their sixth game in a row of at least 20 points. They're going to need to score next week against the Indianapolis Colts. Floyd serves as a WR3, but his upside makes him a strong pickup in most formats.
