Owning Michael Floyd in fantasy football is like sitting on a see-saw—his production goes up, it comes back down, and it all happens in a surprisingly recognizable pattern.

In Weeks 4, 6, 8 and 11 (the Arizona Cardinals were on a bye in Week 9), Floyd registered at least eight fantasy points, making him a viable flex player. He also reached that mark in Week 1. He's only reached six fantasy points in one other game this season, however, making him a pretty inconsistent option.

He kept the trend going in a big way in Week 11, with a touchdown and over 193 receiving yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Of course, Jacksonville came into this game 22nd in the NFL against the pass, so it shouldn't be a huge surprise that Floyd torched them.

Floyd has several promising matchups upcoming against the Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles, but until he can prove some consistency from week-to-week, he isn't a guaranteed starter. Consider him a risky flex consideration each week, and nothing more.
