Floyd posted a sack and a tackle in Chicago's Week 10 victory over the Lions.
After returning an interception for a touchdown last week, Floyd followed that up with his first sack of the season. Unfortunately, he's averaging fewer than three tackles per contest, and his weekly downside may be too significant to overlook when considering him in fantasy lineups.
Floyd had an easy score when intercepting an ill-advised pass by Nathan Peterman in Chicago's blowout victory. Despite his big play, he's yet to record a sack in 2018, and he's failed to establish himself as a reliable IDP in 2018.
Floyd is also likely to have a smaller club on his broken hand, Nagy said. The starting linebacker has been participating in practice and suiting up for games despite the injury, but Floyd is obviously not 100 percent without the full use of his right hand. Already a key piece in Chicago's defensive scheme, it's worth monitoring whether the 26-year-old sees an increased role whenever he manages to fully recover.
Floyd went through a light practice session Monday and appears to have progressed to full participation Wednesday with the regular-season opener Sunday night against the Packers looming. There's nothing at this point to suggest he won't suit up for the contest.
Floyd (hand) is expected to play Week 1, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
The beginning of Floyd's career has been somewhat marred by an assortment of injuries. Fortunately for both Floyd and the Bears, Floyd's recent surgery isn't expected to keep him out of the regular season opener. The hand situation will be something to monitor leading into the regular season, but it doesn't seem to be all that serious at the moment.
