Over the last few years, I have come to realize that Larry Fitzgerald’s offseason camp can turn underperformers into quality fantasy receivers and with Michael Floyd's injury history and off-the-field issues, Fitzgerald is the perfect mentor for the Notre Dame product.
Injuries are a concern but he’s a competitive player who is able to adjust to the ball, go up and battle for it and win. At 6-2 5/8 and 220 pounds Floyd can be an imposing target going over the middle with the ability to focus in traffic to make the tough catch.
Some believe he tested better at the NFL Scouting Combine than he plays and needs to develop strength in the upper body. The Cardinals also have developed Andre Roberts, who is set to take the next step, and Early Doucet as the No. 3 so the team can afford to work him in slowly. However, camp and preseason games will dictate how much playing time he sees once the season starts.
He’s a dynasty pickup but not a recommended fantasy starting receiver and initially should be used as depth on your roster. We don’t know if he’s a receiver who can come in and produce right away, so view him as a mid-round fantasy prospect right now.
