Malcom Floyd injury update: Still won't play, fantasy value non-existent

Harry How

Malcom Floyd's neck injury is still keeping him out of the lineup. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chargers receiver Malcom Floyd (neck) will not play against the Cowboys in Week 4. He did not practice and has not been on the field since Week 2.

He's out indefinitely and could miss more time since being carried off on a stretcher in Week 2. The Chargers have been successful this season in moving the ball and Rivers looks like a different quarterback.

The Chargers have counted on Antonio Gates and Eddie Royal to fill the void left by Floyd and they should continue to go with them for points, especially since they can't get a passing game going.

Fantasy impact: Chances are Floyd owners have moved on since he could miss even more time. The Chargers get the Raiders in Week 6 and don't have their bye until Week 8. Floyd could be back in Week 9, so he's not a terrible player to stash for owners that tend not to need depth as they go through the bye weeks.
