Michael Floyd bounces back from one-catch game
by Michael Hurcomb |

A week after being held to one catch, Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd had much better rapport with backup quarterback Drew Stanton during a 23-14 win Week 3 vs. San Francisco. Floyd totaled a team-high 114 receiving yards on five catches.

Floyd's longest reception went for 45 yards. He also had a 36-yard reception on the team's opening drive and all his receptions went for at least 10 yards.

Floyd, who was targeted nine times, had a chance for two touchdowns, but both times the play was broken up by the defense. The second time would have resulted in a 38-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but the pass from Stanton was slightly underthrown and it made for an easy pass defense.

He has surpassed 100 yards in two of three games. The Cardinals are on a bye Week 4 before returning to action Week 5 at Denver.

Michael Floyd impacted by absence of starting QB
by Michael Hurcomb |

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer's absence from the lineup Sunday against the Giants arguably had the biggest impact on receiver Michael Floyd, who finished with just one catch for 19 yards after totaling five catches for 119 yards in the season opener. 

Floyd was targeted six times by backup quarterback Drew Stanton, which included the first play of the game that resulted in Floyd's only catch. Floyd was targeted three times in each half.

The Cardinals are back in action Week 3 against the 49ers, but coach Bruce Arians indicated after Sunday's game that Palmer might remain sidelined through the team's Week 4 bye.

Michael Floyd looks like Cards' No. 1 receiver
by Larry Hartstein |

The passing of the torch from Larry Fitzgerald to Michael Floyd might already have happened. Monday night against San Diego, Floyd emerged as Carson Palmer's go-to guy, leading the Cardinals with seven targets.

Floyd streaked past the secondary for a 63-yard catch in the first quarter, the second-longest grab of his career. On the game-winning drive in the fourth quarter, Floyd converted 3rd-and-8 with a diving 16-yard reception. Floyd finished with five catches for a game-high 119 yards.

Floyd gets the Giants' burnable secondary in Week 2.

Michael Floyd to benefit from Bruce Arians' approach
by Larry Hartstein |

Coach Bruce Arians loves to attack downfield. In Arians' first season running the Cardinals, quarterback Carson Palmer attempted 74 passes targeted 20 or more yards downfield, seventh-most in the NFL. Look for Palmer to finish in the Top 5 in that category this year.

That's where Michael Floyd comes in. The third-year pro averaged 16 yards per catch last season. That ranked fifth among wideouts with 60 or more catches.

In the dress rehearsal game against Cincinnati, Floyd twice got behind the defense only to see Palmer overthrow him. Arizona won't stop trying to hit Floyd deep.

After finishing as the No. 24 Fantasy wideout in 2013, Floyd is poised to take a leap. His Week 1 matchup against the Chargers isn't daunting, as the 6-2, 220-pounder will go up against the smallest secondary in the league.

Consider him a high-end WR2.

Michael Floyd practiced on limited basis Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin |

As expected, Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd returned to practice Wednesday, though his participation was limited.

Floyd has been dealing with a groin injury. It remains to be seen if he plays Saturday against Cincinnati.
