    Chargers WR Malcom Floyd nabs four passes for 63 yards in loss

    Chargers wide receier Malcom Floyd snatched up four of his seven targets for 63 yards in Sunday's game against the Vikings. The veteran saw season-highs in targets, receptions and yardage as the Chargers were down big on the scoreboard in this one, but he still provided meager returns for fantasy owners. Floyd remains primarily as a deep threat and isn't seeing as many looks as he has in seasons past because of the variety of weapons the Chargers' offense possesses. Even with a favorable home matchup against the Browns looming in Week 4, Floyd's fantasy value remains limited.

    Chargers WR Malcom Floyd scores, but snags only two Sunday

    Aging Chargers wideout Malcom Floyd managed two receptions on four targets for 55 yards and one touchdown in the loss Sunday at Cincinnati. The touchdown came from 40 yards out on a beautiful deep ball from Philip Rivers as San Diego was trying to mount a second consecutive second-half comeback. On the season, Floyd has only three receptions and seems pretty well buried in the wide receiver pecking order behind both Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson, who have 17 and 11 receptions through two games respectively.

    Chargers WR Malcom Floyd thinks this season will be his last

    Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd sees the light at the end of the tunnel in terms of his NFL career. Floyd is considering retiring after the end of this season, per ESPN.com. "My approach is to focus on now, and not trying to worry about what happens after this season," he said. "It can be a distraction. I'm just trying to throw all of my chips in this year, especially because it's the last year of my contract and just go all out, and worry about the rest later. "But I've got four kids and it's taking time away from them. So I'm thinking about shutting it down at the end of this season." Floyd caught 52 passes for 856 yards and six touchdowns last season.

    Several benefit from Keenan Allen's absence

    With wide receiver Keenan Allen sidelined by a broken collarbone Week 16 at San Francisco, wide receiver Eddie Royal saw the biggest increase in targets for the Chargers. He led the team with 12, catching 10 passes for 94 yards. But wide receiver Malcom Floyd and tight end Antonio Gates saw an increase as well. Floyd's 10 were a season high. He caught four of them for 50 yards and a score. Gates' nine were tied for his second most this season. he caught two touchdown passes for the first time since Week 8. For the most part, Gates has gone as quarterback Philip Rivers has gone this season, so maybe his resurgence was more a product of Rivers throwing for 356 yards and four scores than Allen's absence. Likewise, Floyd has been Rivers' downfield threat all season and has had games with similar numbers, even if the targets were less, so if you're going to add a player in Fantasy (not that you could add Gates, of course), it should probably be Royal. Of course, the four touchdown passes were out of character for Rivers, at least going by recent weeks, so against one of the league's best pass defenses Week 17 at Kansas City, he's unlikely to repeat those numbers. And in that case, Royal's would likely suffer as well. It's not like Allen was consistently delivering for Fantasy owners, so maybe outside of deeper leagues, it's best to pass on Royal altogether.

    Chargers WR Malcom Floyd scores key TD in Week 16 win

    Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd caught just four of his season-high 10 targets for 50 yards Saturday but also scored a crucial touchdown in his team's 38-35 overtime win over the 49ers in Week 16. Floyd hadn't been on the same page as quarterback Philip Rivers for much of the night but came through when it mattered, hauling in the game-tying touchdown on an 11-yard post play with just 29 seconds left in regulation. He's up to 49 receptions, 827 yards and six touchdowns going into a Week 17 matchup with the Chiefs.

    Malcom Floyd leads quiet Chargers receiving night vs. Patriots

    Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd caught three of his six targets for a team-high 54 yards and one touchdown in his team's 23-14 loss to the Patriots in Week 14. Floyd made an excellent play on a slightly overthrown ball after beating his man early in the second quarter, hauling in a 15-yard touchdown to put the Chargers ahead for the first time Sunday. They would maintain that lead until the fourth quarter, where they surrendered 10 points and took the loss. Running back Donald Brown and tight end Antonio Gates shared the team lead in receptions, with both players hauling in five passes. Brown gained 49 yards on six targets while Gates managed just 34 yards on eight targets. Eddie Royal caught just two of his five targets for 30 yards, while nominal No. 1 receiver Keenan Allen was held to three yards on two receptions. The Chargers will certainly be looking for a better effort by the passing game in the team's Week 15 matchup with the Broncos.
