The Informers Top Ten Fantasy Football 2012 Draft Prospects: No. 4 WR Michael Floyd Notre Dame 6’2” 220lbs and 4.44
NFL.com: Welcome again to my top ten selections for this years NFL Draft class that will provide your fantasy football team with an immediate impact on fantasy football draft day. These selections reflect the value of players in fantasy football and not necessarily the world of NFL football.
With my 4th overall selection I will take WR Michael Floyd who has the potential to be a dominant NFL receiver!
Floyd is an overall great football player who shows skill beyond just a receiving skills set. Floyd is physical, plays through injuries, has strong blocking skills, and most of all is competitive. Floyd could have been just as successful playing on the other side of the line of scrimmage.
Floyd’s talent is his ability to go up and fight for balls away from defenders. Floyd can catch the ball with ease over the middle and make plays after the catch.
While he had a string of DUI’s in college Floyd clearly is putting his past mistakes behind him and focusing on football.
However what concerns me more is Floyd’s millage and injuries including knee, hamstring, and shoulder. This could make Floyd susceptible to future injuries and IR so keep that in mind on draft day in September.
Regardless of injury Floyd is most likely a boom rather then a bust.
I see Floyd’s overall value being a second option as a fantasy football receiver possibly going as early as the 6th round.
