Malcom Floyd Ready for the Big Gains

The Inve$tment Corner!

Malcom Floyd (Wide Receiver - San Diego Chargers)

Notable Matchups: Week 12 vs. Kansas City, Week 13 vs. Cleveland, Week 15 (playoffs) vs. Cincinnati, Week 16 (championship) vs. Tennessee

Floyd, despite being all the rage of the fantasy world after Chris Chambers was formally released by the Chargers, is currently underowned in many formats.  Consider adding Floyd to help out your wide receivers who are struggling this season or who have a rather tough schedule during the fantasy playoffs.  I would definitely recommend Floyd to owners of Austin Collie and Pierre Garcon, as Anthony Gonzalez should be back in the lineup by the playoff weeks.  The 6-foot-5 Floyd is yet another gargantuan target in the hefty Chargers air attack, headed by quarterback Philip Rivers.  With his 21.5 yards per catch average, Floyd is certainly a deep threat, much like his equally behemoth peer, Vincent Jackson.  Though Jackson should see more looks in the end zone, Floyd seems a likely candidate going forward for a few touchdowns in good matchups, especially when opponents are forced into double coverage on Jackson.  During weeks six through eight, Floyd was especially active in division matchups, pulling in at least 50 yards or a touchdown.  The Giants were able to harass Floyd a little more in one of his first major starts, but Floyd will be more than able to carry his weight during the second half of the season.  Expect a comforting level of consistency from V-Jax Lite and owners in deeper formats should be able to rely heavily on outings from the Chargers' second banana in the receiving game.
