Fantasy Impact of Vikings Signing Michael Floyd

The Minnesota Vikings added to their wide receiver depth this week, signing former Arizona Cardinals and New England Patriots pass catcher Michael Floyd to a one-year contract. 

Floyd was the subject of of-field issues last season, finding himself arrested for a DUI in Arizona. It was a continuation of issues he had in college at Notre Dame. It also led to the Patriots waiving Floyd outright almost immediately after the arrest. 

Floyd, a former first-round pick back in 2012 would ultimately finish the season with 37 receptions for 488 yards and five touchdowns between the two teams. 

Prior to that, the former Golden Domer averaged over 900 yards during a three-year stint in the desert. 

The addition of Floyd likely means that Minnesota is still not sold on 2016 first-round pick LaQuon Treadwell, who caught a total of one pass for the team as a rookie in 2016. That's not good news for those of you who own him in dynasty leagues. 

If Floyd can remain clean off the field, he should team up with Stefon Diggs as one of the Vikings' two starting receivers. He will also be someone to watch on the waiver wire after he serves what will likely be a suspension by the NFL.
