Quick – where did Malcom Floyd rank as a fantasy wide receiver in 2011? The perception seems to be that Floyd doesn’t cut it as a fantasy option but he has improved his ranking from 53rd to 35th to 31st over the past three seasons. That’s not bad for a guy who missed five games in 2010 and four games last season. In fact, the 53rd ranking from 2009 is a bit misleading since he had 776 receiving yards but fell down the charts because he caught just one touchdown. Last year, he had the 20th highest FPts/G average at wide receiver and there is no doubting that he has the size (6’5”, 225 pounds) and speed to replace Vincent Jackson. With Jackson finally taking his talents (and drama) to Tampa Bay, the Chargers signed former Saint Robert Meachem to replace him in the starting lineup and the assumption is that Meachem will assume Jackson’s role and a large portion of his production. That makes Floyd a solid buy low option. If you’re not drinking the Kool Aid yet, consider this: over his last eight games last season, Floyd posted four 100-yard games while catching 34 passes for 698 yards and five touchdowns. He’s a WR3 that will likely come off the board after 45 or 50 other players at his position.
Keenan Allen out Week 16, broken collarbone-- Tue Dec 16 1:15 pm --
Also suffered ankle injury
Wide Receiver Keenan Allen suffered a broken collarbone along with an ankle injury in Sunday’s loss to the Denver Broncos and is not expected to play Saturday when the Chargers head north to face the San Francisco 49ers.(Chargers.com)
FF Today's Take:A disappointing season for Allen is coming to an end. Eddie Royal and Malcom Floyd will move into starting roles this week against the 49ers defense that's allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers.
