Floyd recorded a safety and two sacks to go along with six tackles in Monday's defeat to the Vikings.
Floyd took advantage of Sam Bradford, who was barely able to move in the pocket, by wreaking havoc during the first half of the game. However, once the Vikings went to Case Keenum, Floyd ended the game with a quiet second half. He's now earned sacks in each of his last two games, and as he showed during his rookie campaign, he's more than capable of going on a tear. He's a player to consider using in IDP leagues, especially with the Bears facing the Ravens next week.
Floyd recorded a sack and three tackles in Thursday's defeat to the Packers.
Floyd was able to beat a decimated Green Bay offensive line to collect his first sack of a season. With 10 tackles and a fumble recovery to go with his sack through four weeks, he hasn't made the jump in production in his second year that many fantasy owners had hoped for. Regardless, he could easily show improvement in the near future, so he's a player to keep an eye on in IDP leagues.
Floyd recovered a fumble while adding two tackles in Sunday's defeat to the Buccaneers.
With Tampa Bay avoiding many obvious passing downs, Floyd didn't have many opportunities to take off after the quarterback, but he was able to salvage his fantasy day by recovering a Charles Sims fumble. He has clear potential to be a breakout IDP candidate, but he could struggle to pile up sacks in games that Chicago is playing from behind.
Floyd (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.
Floyd was a late addition to the Bears' injury report after he was a limited participant in Friday's practice with the back issue, but his availability Sunday indicates it's not a major concern. The Bears will look for Floyd to apply pressure on the quarterback from the edge and help shut down the run game following an active Week 1 in which he recorded five stops in addition to breaking up a pass.
Floyd was limited in Friday's practice due to a back injury, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
This is the first time hearing of Floyd dealing with a back, and there is no report yet as to how severe it is. His limited action Friday is likely just precautionary, but Floyd should be seen as a game-time decision until the Bears provide an update on the linebacker.
