Chargers | Malcom Floyd to IR

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 15:09:56 -0700

The San Diego Chargers placed WR Malcom Floyd (neck) on the season-ending Injured Reserve Tuesday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Tough break for Floyd. If you were stashing him, you can now safely drop him. This should mean more work for rookie Keenan Allen, who showed in Week 4 that he is a legitimate deep threat for Philip Rivers. Allen isn't a bad gamble in deeper leagues.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd out a month

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 12:39:38 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) is expected to miss at least a few more games, and the rough estimate is that he'll miss another month of action.

Fantasy Tip: The Chargers will play it extra cautious with Floyd's neck injury. In deeper leagues, you may want to hang onto him, especially if you can stash him in an Injured Reserve slot. Otherwise, you may want to drop him for options that will help you in the short term. Eddie Royal, Antonio Gates and Vincent Brown will all benefit from his absence, and rookie Keenan Allen could be a deep league sleeper certain weeks.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd expected to miss Week 3

Mon, 16 Sep 2013 12:33:11 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) likely will not play Week 3 after being carted off the field during the team's Week 2 game because of a neck injury.

Fantasy Tip: Eddie Royal and Antonio Gates likely will get a bump in their fantasy value while Floyd is out of the lineup. Royal has started off the season very well and should be in all starting lineup as one of the receivers or a flex option. Gates should also be considered at starting tight end in most weeks or could also be flex option.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd to accompany team home

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 15:11:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) will not be hospitalized overnight in Philadelphia, according to a source. He will fly back to San Diego with the team. Floyd left the Week 2 game against the Philadelphia Eagles due to a neck injury, and he was taken by ambulance to a local area hospital.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd's status for Week 3 and beyond is still murky, but this is a great sign that Floyd did not suffer a more serious injury.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd carted off

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 11:59:23 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) was carted off the field on a stretcher due to a neck injury Sunday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Keenan Allen replaced him on the field, but it'll be tough to replace him in your fantasy lineup. He was sandwiched between two defenders in a violent collision. It's too early to assume, but begin the thought process that he may be gone for an extended period.

Fri, 06 Sep 2013 15:20:17 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 6.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd practices in full

Thu, 05 Sep 2013 15:52:12 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) practiced in full Thursday, Sept. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd should be able to suit up for Week 1 against the Houston Texans unless he has a setback in practice. Houston's D was vulnerable through the air last year, so Floyd could be nice sleeper wideout as a WR4.

Chargers | Danny Woodhead playing WR

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 12:19:53 -0700

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead is being used as a slot receiver and caught two passes in his preseason debut against the Arizona Cardinals. WR Eddie Royal (lung, concussion) has been sidelined in the preseason with a bruised lung and concussion. WRs Vincent Brown and Malcom Floyd are expected to be the starting wide receivers in Week 1. Woodhead may join the offense in third-down situations, and WR Keenan Allen should mostly work out of the slot.

Mon, 26 Aug 2013 13:30:06 -0700

San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said WR Malcom Floyd (knee) participated in individual drills and a few team drills during practice Monday, Aug. 26. McCoy said Floyd should be ready for the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd likely will be the team's No. 1 wide receiver this season and should be have an important role in the passing game. Floyd should be seen as a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy wide receiver this season.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd gets good news

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 09:51:57 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) had a second opinion for his knee injury Wednesday, Aug. 14, and the tests revealed no structural damage. The time he misses will depend upon how he feels.

Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Floyd's fantasy owners. He is expected to start opposite Vincent Brown, especially now that Danario Alexander (knee) is done for the season. Floyd won't be a top-end fantasy option, but he is a decent WR3/4 or flex option when healthy.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd out rest of preseason

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 07:48:20 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) won't return until at least Week 1, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd has been rather injury-prone his entire career, and if he's not up to speed for the early part of the season, Philip Rivers and the entire offense is in trouble. With no legitimate deep threat, the Bolts will have to rely heavily on aging Antonio Gates and fellow injury report frequenter Ryan Mathews.

Mon, 12 Aug 2013 20:51:52 -0700

Chargers | Team fears worst with Malcom Floyd

Mon, 12 Aug 2013 20:31:33 -0700

The San Diego Chargers fear WR Malcom Floyd (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in practice Monday, Aug. 12. He is undergoing an MRI Monday. The team already lost WR Danario Alexander (knee) to a torn ACL last week.

Fantasy Tip: If Floyd is sidelined, it is likely the team looks outside of the organization for help. Vincent Brown would have the biggest jump in fantasy value, becoming the de facto No. 1. Eddie Royal, Robert Meachem and rookie Keenan Allen would also move up the pecking order. Antonio Gates might also see more targets if he can stay on the field.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd carted off field

Mon, 12 Aug 2013 15:52:31 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) was carted off the field after suffering an apparent right knee injury during practice Monday, Aug. 12. Floyd was receiving treatment on his knee for a few minutes before being carted off.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation because more information should be coming out over the next day or so. If the injury is serious, the fantasy values of Vincent Brown, Keenan Allen, Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal could all increase because they could get bigger roles on offense.

Chargers | Vincent Brown likely to start

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 09:00:23 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Brown (hamstring) is likely to start opposite WR Malcom Floyd following the season-ending injury to WR Danario Alexander (knee). WRs Keenan Allen, Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal are the other receivers in the mix. Brown is not expected to play in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 8, however, after just returning to practice recently after a strained hamstring sidelined him from practice.

Chargers | Keenan Allen worked with first team

Tue, 25 Jun 2013 08:57:07 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen worked with the first-team offense on the final day of the team's minicamp WRs Danario Alexander and Eddie Royal dinged up with undisclosed injuries. Allen said he's comfortable with the playbook and the offense's terminology. "He's done a nice job buying into what we're doing," head coach Mike McCoy said. "It's a change for him. We're moving guys around, and the skill-position guys really need to know every position because you never know when Philip is going to check at the line of scrimmage. You have an idea where you're playing, but when it comes to a formation, Philip can audible something whenever he wants. ... You've got to know every position."

Fantasy Tip: It'll be tough for Allen to earn a starting role at a position that's probably the deepest on San Diego's depth chart. Alexander, Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown figure to rotate often, and the Chargers also have Royal and Robert Meachem. Barring an injury or unforeseen change, it's probably best to leave Allen for the waiver wire in redraft leagues.

Chargers | Malcom Floyd to will be running different routes

Thu, 20 Jun 2013 17:08:37 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd said he has been running different routes under head coach Mike McCoy because the team wants QB Philip Rivers to get the ball out quicker. "I'm running different routes," Floyd said. "These coaches are really working on my lateral ability, a lot of these drills this offseason, getting in and out of my breaks. It's details like foot placement on curl routes, reprogramming my brain. ... I'm 10 years old in this league, but I feel a lot better than last year. I'm very excited about this upcoming year." Floyd was used as a vertical threat the last few seasons.

"He's in it, but it comes down to what we're using in terms of personnel groups," head coach Norv Turner said Monday, Nov. 26. "We have a comfort level with (WR Malcom Floyd). Malcom plays all the positions. We've tried to get (WR Danario Alexander) going and he's made some plays for us. That's where we're at right now."

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd has taken over as the team's "Z" receiver. The "Z" typically lines up on the same side as TE Antonio Gates, and Floyd was moved there in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to create mismatches and make opponents pick their poison. The position was previously manned by WR Robert Meachem. "With Antonio and I lining up next to each other, we put a strain on whatever side we're on," Floyd said.
