Already Looking At The Fantasy Football Value Of Michael Floyd

With the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft complete, now people are already looking ahead to the fantasy football season and trying to figure out the value of these new rookies. SB Nation's Fake Teams, the fantasy football hub for everyone, already has rated the best fantasy football first round picks.

According to that article, new Cardinals draft pick Michael Floyd rates eighth in fantasy value.

Cardinals fans have been waiting for the next wideout to complement Larry Fitzgerald since AZ dumped Anquan Boldin and while Floyd is certainly the most talented player to call the 602 his home, he has his work cut out for him. He still has to beat out Andre Roberts and Early Doucet, which shouldn't be too difficult. Plus, the Cardinals have some issues at quarterback with the team already feeling buyer's remorse after forking over a five-year, $63 million deal to Kevin Kolb.

There's certainly some positives for the Golden Domer. Floyd is one of the most polished receivers to come out and he showed some exceptional skills to separate in space in college. Unless there's a tremendous buzz surrounding Floyd in the coming months, he's not a guy that'll be worth drafting in 12-team leagues.

There you have it. Floyd has no fantasy value yet and is not projected to do so. We all can sleep better because of this.
