NEWS: Michael Floyd to be a major deep threat in 2014?

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd pulled in one pass for four yards during Sunday’s preseason contest against the Bengals. Larry Fitzgerald pulled in three receptions for 71 yards.

SMITTY: My guess is that the typical fantasy football owner in most leagues didn’t watch this game… Michael Floyd was targeted twice on two super-deep touchdown passes, so Carson Palmer is going to stretch the field with Floyd all year long. The first bomb was just dropped by Floyd in the end zone, and the second deep pass was just bad timing on the part of Palmer. Some might consider the Fitzgerald the No. 1 in Arizona this year, and he very well could have one more season as the top dog Cardinal receiver… but, I love how Floyd is progressing, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see Floyd dance in low-end fantasy WR1-territory in 2014. Don’t even think about drafting him at that value/level, that’s not smart drafting… Use his 5th- to early 6th-round ADP to your advantage. Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?
