Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:15:58 -0700

Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd had a good offseason, but head coach Mike Zimmer thinks the defensive tackle is trying to be too fine. "Sharrif has a lot of ability. Right now, he's trying so hard to be perfect on every single snap," Zimmer said. "He just needs to relax and let it free-flow a little bit more."

Vikings | Sharrif Floyd might start

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 10:59:27 -0700

Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd might be thrust into the starting role if DT Kevin Williams (knee) isn't ready to return. DT Christian Ballard is on the reserve/left squad list and DT Letroy Guion could go back to the three-technique position on the defensive line. DT Chase Baker hasn't played in an NFL game. The team is unlikely to rush Williams back.

Vikings | Sharrif Floyd won't start

Fri, 21 Jun 2013 10:02:49 -0700

Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd is expected to come off the bench as a backup to DT Kevin Williams this year. Head coach Leslie Frazier wants Floyd, the team's first of their first-round draft picks, to play in a rotation with Williams to help give Williams some rest. If both players emerge as the team's two best defensive tackles, it's possible one could be moved to nose tackle so they can play together. Williams is in the final year of his contract, so Floyd could replace him in a starting role next year if they don't re-sign him.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd should only be drafted in IDP keeper formats. He won't see enough time and wasn't a very successful pass rusher in his college days, so there won't be much value in single-year formats here.

Vikings | Sharrif Floyd works with first team

Wed, 19 Jun 2013 18:55:31 -0700

Minnesota Vikings DL Sharrif Floyd saw reps with the first-team nickel defense during minicamp practice Wednesday, June 19. He was working next to NT Letroy Guion.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd is viewed as the future for the Vikings, and the heir apparent to Kevin Williams once he moves on. For IDP fantasy purposes, Floyd struggled with the pass rush at the University of Florida, posting just 4 1/2 sacks over his final two seasons. He'll likely be asked to rush the quarterback in his rookie season in the nickel, but it won't equate to much fantasy value. He is, however, worth drafting in all long-term keeper formats.

Cowboys | Sharrif Floyd not a good fit

Fri, 26 Apr 2013 08:18:31 -0700

The Dallas Cowboys opted not to try to wait for Florida DT Sharrif Floyd in the first round of the NFL Draft because he didn't fit their new defensive scheme. Floyd would be selected by the Minnesota Vikings. "In our system, we probably would put a premium on a quick-twitch potential 3-technique," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "We view him as not that, but certainly maybe capable of getting there. So that is a case where our system, our switch from the 3-4 where he was obviously a nose tackle had a lot of promise."

Vikings | Sharrif Floyd selected 23rd overall

Thu, 25 Apr 2013 19:42:22 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings selected Florida DT Sharrif Floyd with the 23rd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a drop in draft stock in the last week, this gives the Norse a decent shot at a suitable long-term replacement for the Williams Wall at an attractive price. Maybe he'll be a fleeting IDP consideration. Minnesota remains a fringe fantasy option.

NFL | Sharrif Floyd defends draft status

Tue, 23 Apr 2013 07:42:05 -0700

Florida DT Sharrif Floyd is considered by many as the top defensive tackle prospect in the NFL Draft; however, some critics have questioned his arm length. Floyd does not believe that to be the case. "In my eyes there is no road-block that is going to stop me," Floyd said. "A lot of people ask me 'do you feel as though your arms are short' and I say 'I don't play like my arms are short.' So my tape speaks for itself and the type of person I am speaks for itself."
