This second year receiver is well on his way to surpassing all the numbers he put up last year. The Cardinals were hoping that with a year under his belt and Carson Palmer passing him the ball, that Floyd would become a legit threat opposite Larry Fitzgerald. Floyd has been very consistent - especially the last three weeks - and is becoming a worthy start - particularly in point per reception leagues. Floyd has had at least five receptions and 44 yards in each of his last three games and just scored his first touchdown of the season last week. If you need a WR or a flex starter this week, look at Floyd.

Coby Fleener has been boom or bust so far this season and hasn't been the consistent weapon the Colts were hoping. That being said, nothing helps out a fantasy player like playing a team that gives up the most passing yards per game. This week the Colts face off with the Denver Broncos, who are giving up a league worst 337 yards per game through the air so far this season. This game figures to be a big shootout and Indianapolis will need all hands on deck to have a chance to stick with the Broncos offense. After putting up some duds the last few weeks, look for a big game and TD from Fleener this week
