Summary

Malcom Floyd has been in the league for ten years, but has never been more than a marginal fantasy WR3. It looked as if that might change early last season. Floyd had always been primarily a deep threat, and he caught a 47-yard bomb in week one last season as if to reaffirm that typecast. But in week two he showed a previously absent knack for getting open on intermediate routes, catching five passes for over 100 yards in the first half. On the first play of the second half, however, he suffered a serious neck injury that threatened to put his career in jeopardy. Skip ahead to 2014. Floyd has been cleared to resume his career, and will seek to reclaim his spot in the starting lineup. If he shows no ill effects from the injury, he should be considered the favorite to start opposite Keenan Allen. In his best case scenario, he will pick up where he left off at the beginning of last season and finally break into the ranks of fantasy WR2s. Much more likely, however, he will get limited playing time in a rotation with Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal -- a group significantly behind Keenan Allen in the quest for targets -- and fail to achieve fantasy relevance in standard leagues.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd looking forward to camp (Wed Jul 16, 12:42 PM) - San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) said it was good that he was able to work with QB Philip Rivers during offseason workouts and is looking forward to the start of training camp. 'I think itís good for Philip, good for me to get that trust back,' he said. 'Itís good for us to go through these plays right now so in training camp itíll be fluid and then you can run the plays without thinking,' Floyd said. He said he is not concerned about the neck injury he suffered last season and considered it a fluke event.

Our View: Floyd is a favorite target of Philip Rivers, but he has struggled to stay healthy during hid pro career. By all accounts, the veteran wideout has been having a good offseason. Floyd was considered one of the top performers during the workouts. The only Chargers receiver getting drafted right now is Keenan Allen (WR12, 3.09) in 12-team PPR leagues. If Floyd stays healthy in camp, keep him on your waiver wire speed dial to begin the season.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd confident he is healthy (Tue Jul 15, 12:33 PM) - San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) said he is confident he is healthy heading into 2014. ďIím confident right now,Ē Floyd said. ďI donít have any doubts in my mind right now. It was just a fluke event.Ē

Our View: Floyd is a favorite target of Philip Rivers but he should be overshadowed this year by second-year wide receiver Keenan Allen. Currently, Allen has an ADP of WR12 (3.09) in 12-team PPR leagues. There are no other Chargers receivers getting drafted at this time. Keep a guy like Floyd or Eddie Royal on your waiver wire speed dial.
