Fantasy Football Outlook: It’s the beginning of the end for Floyd and it’s likely his time as a fantasy option is over as Vincent Brown is coming back from injury and the addition of Keenan Allen in the draft.
Don’t look to Floyd as an option on draft day but Brown, Allen and Danario Alexander all have injury problems in their past, so we could see Floyd emerge as an option if Philip Rivers has a bounce back season.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections
Malcom Floyd is an tough nut to crack for me as his game would suggest he’s nothing more than a WR4 on draft day. Then again, Floyd was active in the Chargers offense when healthy, finishing the season strong.
With Vincent Jackson gone, only time will tell us what Robert Meachem will amount too as another vertical threat.
Second year receiver Vincent Brown has a lot of potential as a quality possession receiver, but if he should take a starting job away, it will be from Meachem.
It almost makes me cringe a little to think a player who’s been an inconsistent route runner and mostly a 9-route runner in his career, will be the Chargers No.1 receiver (if you exclude tight end Antonio Gates), but Floyd is the man.
Floyd is currently trending as the 35th receiver off the board in recent mock drafts, making him a WR3 to WR4 on draft day. Fair value for sure, if Floyd can stay close to his late-season production, he could produce like a borderline WR2 play.
That said, expect Floyd to be a boom / bust option weekly, because he has a track record of being dependent on the deep ball for most of his production.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
While Malcom Floyd did an admirable job for Philip Rivers in Vincent Jackson’s absence, he will be nothing more than a average No.2 receiver this season. Floyd is an average at best route runner and wouldn’t make it as a starting receiver if it wasn’t for his 6’5 frame and his leaping ability to snag down deep passes. Floyd will be selected in most fantasy drafts this summer but don’t be be the one to put him on your team, unless your in a league with 14 or more teams.

While Malcom Floyd took on a bigger role in the Chargers’ offense he failed to capitalize fully with Vincent Jackson gone and Antonio Gates batting an injury. Floyd his a big receiver that can leap over defenders for the football, but he’s a poor route runner and routinely seemed to get lost in a great passing offense. Now a free agent, Floyd has been rumored to possibly head to the Bears, and that would be a decent for him because that team is desperate for a big receiver.
Malcolm Floyd took over as the No.2 receiver in San Diego upon the release of Chambers. While Floyd did provide the occasional big play for his offense, he didn’t do much for fantasy. If Floyd is to improve on his 2009 season, he will need to step up his route running abilities.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Malcom Floyd received an opportunity to start for the Chargers after the team released Chris Chambers during the season. Overall Floyd was a disappointment as he failed to show more activity in the passing game than the occasional catch down the field.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: For the size Floyd has (6’5) you would think he could total more than one touchdown as a starter. If Floyd continues to play like this, I have to feel that someone like Legedu Naanee will challenge him for the starting job.
Floyd will be a clear starter for the Chargers and Vincent Jackson could face a suspension early in the year so Philip Rivers may look his way often. This would be good to see as Floyd has to step his game up before fantasy owners can keep him on their rosters.
