Malcom Floyd Fantasy News

Friday, December 11, 2015, 6:22pm

Chargers WRs Stevie Johnson (groin, out) and Dontrelle Inman (neck, out) missed practice all week and are out for Week 14. Malcom Floyd, Javontee Herndon, Tyrell Williams and the newly re-signed Vincent Brown will lead the way against the Chiefs. Ladarius Green could see a lot of playing time in two-TE sets.

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 12. Floyd should return to the lineup this week. He'll provide a deep threat.

Fantasy Impact:

Both Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green are active at TE for the Bolts. Gates was dealing with knee and hip injuries and Green an ankle. Both should be involved in the offense given the injuries at WR, but Gates is still a higher-ranked fantasy play at the position and a favorite red zone target for QB Philip Rivers.

The first time Tyrell Williams played this season, he played nine snaps, all on special teams, running down kickoffs and punts in coverage.

This second time, he has the chance to flash his ability on offense.

Wide receiver Malcom Floyd believes in it.

"He's sort of a mirror image of me but younger and fresher," Floyd, 34, said. "He's a speedster. He's out there, running 21 miles per hour. ... I think he's going to be better (than me). He's got a head start. He's healthy. He's durable. We might have the same stats or not, a 40-plus inch vertical, 4.4 speed, but I think there's a tremendous upside with him compared to me. He has a head start. He didn't get hampered by any early injuries or anything like that."

Fantasy Impact:

The Chargers are promoting Williams from their practice squad, a source said Saturday morning. He'll be one of four wide receivers active Sunday against the Chiefs; Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon are the others. Herndon and Williams are playing their second career game. They have a 12-yard catch between them.

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 11. Floyd will reportedly attempt to play through the injury, but he won’t be able to do so this week. Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon are the top three receivers on the depth chart. Johnson is a fantasy WR2 while Inman holds some WR3/flex appeal.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee, hip, probable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is probable for Week 11. Gates will be fine to play in Week 11, though according to beat writer Michael Gehlken, he’s dealing with a hip injury that has developed as he has attempted to compensate for his knee. His role will increase with Keenan Allen out for the year and Malcom Floyd out for Week 11.

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Floyd will reportedly attempt to play through the injury, but he’s not likely to do so this week. For now, we’re assuming he’s out. Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon are the top three receivers on the depth chart.

Malcom Floyd continues to rehab from a shoulder injury that threatens to end the 34-year-old's career.

However, San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said the team holds out hope that Floyd can somehow work is way onto the field before the conclusion of this season. Floyd said before the season started that 2015 will be his last in a 12-year career with the Chargers.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Floyd suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Fantasy Impact:

Others reports have said teammate Antonio Gates is trying to talk Floyd into coming back in 2016, but that remains to be seen. The Bolts are just 2-7 at this point in the season.

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd, who tore his labrum, will rehab and see how it goes. He'll attempt to play thru it in his last season, I'm told.

Malcom Floyd has torn labrum, status unknown

Tuesday, November 10, 2015, 8:53pm

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Malcom Floyd has sacrificed his body for deep passes since 2004. There is a chance the one Monday was his last.

The Chargers wide receiver suffered a torn left labrum, a source said following an MRI on Tuesday, when he dove for a second-quarter pass against the Bears. It remains to be seen if that play will be the final one of his NFL career. Floyd, 34, long has planned to retire after the 2015 season.

The team is not rushing how it proceeds with Floyd.

Fantasy Impact:

Coach Mike McCoy called Floyd's status "day-to-day" on Tuesday, as the team gathers information and works with Floyd to make the best choice on where the situation evolves from here.
Certainly, if he can continue playing, even with a smaller catch radius and while not finishing out the year, it'd be a positive for one of most widely-liked and respected Chargers among teammates and organizational members over the years, the story said.

Chargers WR Stevie Johnson (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Johnson looks doubtful for Week 6. Malcom Floyd and Dontrelle Inman would pick up the slack if he is out again.

Fantasy Impact:

Remember, Martavis Bryant is dealing with a knee "tweak" and is unlikely to play on Monday night, per reports. He's not yet on the 53-man roster so the Steelers don't have to list him on the injury report. For the Chargers, Stevie Johnson is out and Malcom Floyd is questionable, though it appears he will play provided he can pass his final concussion tests. With Johnson out, Floyd is a Sneaky Start, though Dontrelle Inman will get some run as well.

Friday, October 9, 2015, 6:11pm

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (concussion) took full practice reps again Friday. Floyd appears to be making progress in his return from a concussion. With Stevie Johnson nursing a hamstring injury, the Chargers don’t have many healthy receiving options. Dontrelle Inman would be a Sneaky Start if Floyd and/or Johnson are out.
