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.
