WR Malcom Floyd - San Diego Chargers
|6-5, 225||Born: 9-8-1981||College: Wyoming||Drafted: ---|
Quick fantasy outlook: Malcom Floyd came into the league in 2004 with Philip Rivers, and indeed Rivers' first NFL touchdown pass was to Floyd. The two have been working together longer than any other active QB-WR combination in the league, and as the senior member of the Chargers' WR corps, Floyd has a strong chance to maintain his role as a starter. He will be up against stronger competiton for that honor, however, than he faced last season. The two starters will come from the group of Danario Alexander, Malcom Floyd, Vincent Brown, and Keenan Allen, and all four have a legitimate shot. Moreover, even if Floyd does start once again, his upside potential appears limited: the best fantasy season he's ever had was in 2011 when he finished as #32 fantasy WR. He'll be 32 years old this season -- a bit late for a breakout season significantly better than his previous best. Consider Floyd as a fantasy WR5 with severely limited upside.
