Sharrif Floyd: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)A knee injury forced the first DNP of Floyd's career last Sunday, but the sophomore defensive tackle will return to action in some capacity in Week 13. If he can channel the four appearances before his Week 12 absence of 23 tackles (16 solo) and 2.5 sacks, his IDP potential would certainly be fulfilled.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
