It is still early, but it isn't too early to start thinking about your 2012 fantasy league team. That is why Fake teams is breaking down and ranking players at different positions. The latest post was ranking the second day's wide receiver rankings.

Larry Fitzgerald is not on this list, as he is obviously one of the best fantasy players available at the position. However, rookie receiver Michael Floyd is on this list, ranking number 43.

The analysis says this:

The Cardinals had some trouble solving their WR2 issues last year. That said, Andre Roberts and Early Doucet combined to have eight games with five or more catches. If that can transform to just Floyd, he'd have some decent value. Yes, I'm aware of the flawed logic here and we'll delve more into this once Kevin Kolb wins the job. Floyd wouldn't have much value with Skelton at the helm and he still has work to do. He's growing on me a little, though.

The interesting thing to me about this is how Floyd potentially is worth almost nothing in fantasy football if Skelton is the starter, but could have value if Kolb starts.

Either way, if you are into fantasy football, sit tight and wait and see on Floyd before adding him to your team -- at least apparently.
