|At one point, fantasy owners were looking at Malcom Floyd as
the potential “twin tower” complement to then-Charger
Vincent Jackson in the passing game. When that didn't happen,
hopes became that he would eventually become a big play receiver
who, despite inconsistency, could give the Chargers some huge
games from time to time. Now entering his 10th season as a pro,
Floyd has become only a bit more than a big body role-player in
the San Diego offense.
Although he did enjoy his best fantasy season as a pro in 2014
when he caught 52 passes for 856 yards and six touchdowns, Floyd
was never really on the fantasy radar for most owners as he eclipsed
90 yards just twice on the season and never caught more than five
passes in any one game. It's very hard to trust him as a
fantasy receiver and with the addition of Steve Johnson as a potential
downfield threat and Allen possibly moving into the slot, there
will likely be fewer balls that head Floyd's way in 2015.
Look at Floyd's 2014 numbers as a ceiling for what he can
do this season, which makes him a WR3 at best, but more likely
a bye-week fill-in when the Chargers have a good matchup.

Chargers WR confirms retirement talk

|The Chargers wide receiver reaffirmed Tuesday he will retire after the 2015 season. This long has been the plan for Malcom Floyd, who will turn 34 in September and is entering the final year of his contract. "I have four kids now," Floyd said. "I'm barely getting any time with them. I've got to go home and rest." (San Diego Union Tribune)|
FFToday's Take: Floyd is entering his 12th NFL season coming off his best fantasy year with a 52-856-6 stat line in 2014 good for 29th among fantasy wideouts. He'll flirt with WR4 value this season and is worthy of a late-round flier in re-draft leagues.
