Malcom Floyd | WR | San Diego Chargers

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd finished with four catches for 50 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 in his first game since suffering a career-threatening neck injury last September.
Huddle Up: Floyd capitalized on being the alternative to the Patrick Peterson-covered Keenan Allen; so long as he can stay healthy, there's fantasy value in that role going forward.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) said it was good that he was able to work with QB Philip Rivers during offseason workouts and is looking forward to the start of training camp. 'I think it's good for Philip, good for me to get that trust back,' he said. 'It's good for us to go through these plays right now so in training camp it'll be fluid and then you can run the plays without thinking,' Floyd said. He said he is not concerned about the neck injury he suffered last season and considered it a fluke event. Floyd was considered one of the top performers during the workouts.
Huddle Up: Floyd has developed into a reliable fantasy contributor and will offer Rivers an alternative should Keenan Allen be covered. He's not a go-to guy, but you can plug Floyd into a bye-week hole without embarrassment.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) said he is confident he is healthy heading into 2014. "I'm confident right now," Floyd said. "I don't have any doubts in my mind right now. It was just a fluke event."
Huddle Up: Floyd has slipped to the fantasy back-burner due to the 2013 injury absence and advancing age (he'll be in 33 in Sept.), but the veteran could very easily re-gain his starting gig with the remainder of the Bolts' WR corps unproven and inconsistent outside of Keenan Allen.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) said he has been fully cleared for contact by doctors.
Huddle Up: Floyd has been a fringe fantasy contributor in San Diego, and the Chargers would prefer he remain no better than a third receiver behind Keenan Allen and Vincent Brown. On the bright side, he's healthy... for now.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) is expecting to return to play in 2014, according to team and league sources. "The doc said "I'm at risk just like anybody else," Floyd said. "There's not really a worry. As far as going out there and performing, I'm really excited to make plays again. Hopefully, I can do more this year than I ever have. I'm feeling good. I think I feel like my old self."
Huddle Up: Floyd reeled in a career-high 56 passes for 814 yards and 5 scores in his last full season in 2012 and would be a good complement to 2013 rookie standout Keenan Allen, but Floyd is two years older now -- he'll be 33 when the season opens -- and is coming off a serious injury.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd has been cleared by doctors for light weightlifting. Floyd, who is recovering from a neck injury suffered in September, resumed running about a month ago.
Huddle Up: Floyd, who will be 33 by the time the season rolls around in September, has come a long way on the comeback trail but obviously still has some work to do. His best year, though, came in his last full season (2012) when he caught 56 passes for 814 yards and 5 TDs so don't write him off just yet.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) is scheduled to meet with a spine specialist in the near future for a checkup. Floyd's status for next season is expected to become clearer in the next few weeks.
Huddle Up: Floyd has battled plenty of injuries, and at this point given the rapid ascent of Keenan Allen he'd be at best a WR2 in San Diego. Even if he's given a clean bill of health for the 2014 season, his fantasy upside is limited.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd is still dealing with pain in his injured neck but hopes to be able to continue his playing career. Floyd has been told other players have come back from this injury but has also been told the injury could be career-threatening. He is scheduled to meet with a doctor in about a month to get a better idea about his playing future.
Huddle Up: Floyd, who was limited to 2 games and 6 catches due to the injury, will turn 33 in September so he has a few years left if he's able to resume playing.

The San Diego Chargers placed WR Malcom Floyd (neck) on the season-ending Injured Reserve list Tuesday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Floyd was on the receiving end of a nasty hit in Week 2, and although he's not going to need surgery his season is over. The Bolts have WRs Eddie Royal, Keenan Allen and Vincent Brown, but much of the pass-catching slack is being picked up by apparently revitalized TE Antonio Gates and new-addition RB Danny Woodhead.
