Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 7 but said he is optimistic about his chances of playing. Floyd also said he would like to see more targets in the passing game.
Huddle Up: Floyd has recorded two catches and 24 yards in two games this season and has been targeted four times during that span. He could receive some more playing time this week with Stefon Diggs sidelined but should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd (calf) suffered a calf injury in Week 6 and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Floyd recorded only one reception for five yards in the game and his status for Week 7 is uncertain at this point. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Floyd most weeks.

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd is in the starting lineup against the Green Bay Packers in place of WR Stefon Diggs (groin).
Huddle Up: Floyd made his season debut last week and finished with one catches for 19 yards. He should receive more targets this week and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but could also be avoided if owners have better options available.

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd is eligible to return to the active roster after serving his four-game suspension. He's expected to practice with the team Thursday, Oct. 5.
Huddle Up: Despite a tough situation at quarterback, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have more than held their own, sitting first and third, respectively, in receiving yardage through four games. That probably caps Floyd's ceiling as the team's No. 3 receiver, which doesn't figure to have appreciable fantasy value. As such, there's no reason to make a move on Floyd this week.

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd was placed on the Reserve/Suspended list Saturday, Sept. 2.
Huddle Up: Floyd will miss the first four games of the season and it is uncertain what role he will have when he returns. Owners can pass on Floyd during drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option during the season.

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd has been suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Floyd has had some off the field problems over the last year and will miss the first month of the season because of the suspension. Floyd had some value when he signed with the Vikings but probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues now. Adam Thielen could see more targets this season and can be a No. 3 receiver in leagues.

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd will remain with the team despite receiving a one-day jail sentence, according to general manager Rick Spielman, who said that Floyd will be expected with the rest of the club at the start of training camp when players report on July 26.
Huddle Up: Even so, Floyd has fallen mightily over the last year and shouldn't really be considered even in the deepest of fantasy leagues. He's far down on the depth chart and it's highly unlikely he works his way into getting regular targets from Sam Bradford, especially with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen already absorbing most of the looks.

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd said Thursday, June 15, that he still has plenty of work to do in order to be comfortable with the offense before training camp begins in July.
Huddle Up: Floyd is trying to claim the No. 3 receiver role, but even if he wins the job, he is unlikely to have any consistent value in Minnesota's limited passing attack.

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd's one-year deal that contains no guaranteed money, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling. That means the team has no financial commitment to Floyd should he fail to make the final cut.
Huddle Up: Floyd teased for years in Arizona as part of a much better passing attack. There are certainly opportunities to earn snaps in Minnesota, but it's unlikely Floyd will do enough to return meaningful value. He's best left on waivers.

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd won't have any issues picking up the offensive system, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.
Huddle Up: Even if Floyd earns steady playing time, he is going to have a tough time providing much fantasy value as part of a Minnesota offense that relies on shorter throws. You can leave him on the waiver wire.
