I think Floyd will be a decent WR3 with WR2 upside, but until I see something more from Carson Palmer and the Arizona offense, I'm not reaching for him. I'd rather take a chance on Reuben Randle or someone like that if they're both available. His value is a bit higher in PPR, but I don't think by a large margin. As long as Fitzgerald is there, he'll get the most targets.

P.S.  I-L-L

I believe Floyd has WR1 potential, but I don't believe Palmer can take him there. He's a WR3 for next season with Palmer throwing the ball and Fitz in the picture.

I like him as a WR3 but with Palmer at QB that's about as much as I see him. If Arizona decides to draft a young signal caller I might like him a little bit more but he is hindered by Paalmer IMO.

Not the type of guy I would like to burn one of picks on. Doesn't have the upside that other guys in his range will.

of those options I would go williams easily. although I would bett he will have the highest ADP so that might not be very insightful.

Would you keep him over someone like Marcus Colston or Jason Witten? I dont think so..... The writing is on the wall for this guy to continue his break out. He is Palmers favorite redzone target, has incredible hands, and has Larry to tutor him. Cant say I see him less than a WR2 next year...66 catches, 1054 yards last year....and a few games he was limited. This isnt his ceiling and TD numbers are a bit fluky too because he easily could have had another 3-4 to his total...so you're looking at close to  75-80 catches, minimum 1100 yards and 8 TDs on the year....i'll take that

I echo this, Munde. Loved his flashes last year, and think in the right situation, his upside could be through the roof. But this is just not the right situation. Palmer proved he's an inconsistent QB, and that ARI oline isn't exactly fixed which won't help anything. The talented kid will be a streaky WR3 until the Cards improve the QB and oline play.

Well considering it is my opinion and not a prediction, I could care less if it is insightful or not.  Even if Austin were to be let go, Williams would still be the third option in the passing game at best, and finished behind both Floyd and Randle statistically last season.  "Bett" however you choose.

I will take him as a WR2, but I am not really high on his upside. Mostly because of him QB and division. It seems all 4 teams in their division are build on their defense now.

Ill think of him as more of a flex/borderline WR3. Good production last year but I feel like he'll be taken before I'm comfortable with him. When predraft rankings come out they'll be a few guys behind him ill likely "reach" for

problem with labeling him WR3 or WR2 is I don't see consistency.  and that can cost you match ups when palmer goes full potato.

would rather draft Kendall Wright for his drastically more reliable production.

obviously have to see prices though.
