RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Sharrif Floyd.
Floyd's 2015 production was hampered due to a nagging knee injury that kept him out for three games, and left him at less than 100 percent for several others. He still managed to record 34 tackles and 2.5 sacks as a starting defensive tackle on a stout, young defense in Minnesota. He projects to have a similar role in 2016, but could see an improvement in tackle numbers given he's able to stay healthy.
Floyd is a starting defensive tackle who has become an impact player against the run while improving as a pass rusher. Floyd nearly doubled his sack total last season with 4.5 sacks. It's possible he could take a big leap in his third season.
Floyd's rookie season was a mild disappointment as the 2013 first-round draft pick came off the bench and had just 19 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He'll be thrust into a starting role at defensive tackle this season with the many changes on Minnesota's defensive line. The Vikings will be counting on him as a key run stuffer who can also make an occasional impact as a pass rusher.
Minnesota got a steal in Floyd with the 23rd overall pick in this year's draft. He may contend to start in Week 1 and could provide immediate production as a DL4 upside pick in most IDP leagues.
