Michael Floyd injury update: WR probable, will play for fantasy owners

New, comment

The Cardinals wide receiver is probable and will play in Week 16. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd (ankle) is listed as probable and will play in the team's Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Floyd was limited in practice on Wednesday and then got in a full practice on Thursday and Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Floyd has enjoyed a borderline break-out second season. While his last two games have left much to be desired (total of four catches for 59 yards), Floyd has been a classic boom-or-bust fantasy option throughout the season. The former first-round pick has 59 receptions for 932 yards and four touchdowns on the year and has gone over 100 yards receiving twice. Consistency is hard to come by in Arizona's offense but Floyd appears to be well on his way to becoming a play-making fantasy stud. His 15.8 yards per catch supports his big-play ability and he is a legitimate candidate to give owners a solid contribution in any given week.

Floyd will take on Seattle's elite secondary on Sunday. While Fitzgerald will likely draw the majority of attention from shutdown corner back Richard Sherman, Floyd will still have his hands full. He is a mid-range WR3 and another dud from Floyd is a very realistic possibility.
