Michael Floyd has career-best game; fantasy owners celebrate

Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals wide receiver had a huge game Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd had a career-best game Sunday. The receiver topped his previous best in single-game receiving yards by almost 30 in the Cardinals' 27-14 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Floyd caught six passes for 193 yards and a touchdown Sunday, setting season highs in receptions, targets (11) and yards. The 193 yards marked only Floyd's second 100-yard game of his career, next to a 166-yard game in Week 17 of last season. Other than those two outings, Floyd has never topped 87 yards in a game.

His touchdown came on a 91-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter, but even without it, Floyd would have topped 100 yards in the game.

Fantasy impact: It is rapidly becoming a two-man punch in Arizona, as Floyd's ascension has somewhat coincided with the fading of star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who was limited to 61 yards and a score Sunday. Fitzgerald is still the receiver fantasy owners want out of Arizona, but Floyd is moving himself further into regular flex consideration.
