Malcom Floyd reiterated Tuesday that 2015 will be his final season in the NFL.
Quietly coming off one of his finest NFL seasons, Floyd turns 34 in September. "I have four kids now," Floyd said. "I'm barely getting any time with them. I've got to go home and rest." Floyd told the U-T San Diego that "all my chips are in" for the 2015 season, and he plans to leave it all on the table. Floyd should be a serviceable WR4/5 in fantasy leagues this year.

Malcom Floyd said 2015 will likely be his final season in the NFL.

"I'm just trying to throw all of my chips in this year, especially because it's the last year of my contract and just go all out," Floyd said. "I've got four kids and it's taking time away from them. So I'm thinking about shutting it down at the end of this season." The soon-to-be 34-year-old suffered a scary neck injury in 2013 but returned healthy last year to post a 52-856-6 line.

The Chargers tried to sign Andre Johnson before he went to the Colts.

"They were all in," one source told the Union-Tribune San Diego. "Close as you can get." Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Johnson turned down more money from the Chargers to follow college teammate Frank Gore to Indy. San Diego's interest in Johnson is something to file away for NFL draft predictions, and possibly for the outlook of aging vertical threat Malcom Floyd.

Malcom Floyd had three catches for 29 yards in Week 17 against the Chiefs.

Floyd managed to post a 52/856/6 line this season, but averaged just three catches and 50 yards over the last five weeks. Due $3 million in 2015, Floyd should be back with the Chargers. The 33-year-old deep threat is a low-ceiling Dynasty hold with WR4/5 value in non-PPR leagues.

Malcom Floyd caught 4-of-10 targets for 50 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the 49ers.

Floyd saw more targets with Keenan Allen (ankle, collarbone) sidelined, but the overall result was the same. Primarily a deep threat, Floyd has not caught more than five passes in a game this season and has surpassed 90 yards receiving twice. Floyd is a touchdown-dependent WR4 for fantasy.

Malcom Floyd caught three passes for 34 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Broncos.

Floyd had no shot against the Broncos' elite corner duo, with the low-light coming as Aqib Talib easily hopped in front of Floyd for a late interception. The deep threat just couldn't get any separation or production even though Keenan Allen (ankle) left early. Floyd will be a WR4 type against the 49ers in Week 16.

Malcom Floyd caught three passes for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 14 loss to the Patriots.

With Darrelle Revis shadowing Keenan Allen, Floyd took on an expanded role. He was able to beat Patriots CB Brandon Browner on a diving catch for a 15-yard touchdown in the corner of the end-zone. Floyd finished behind only Antonio Gates with six targets. He won't be more than a WR4 against the Broncos.
Mon, Dec 8, 2014 12:43:00 AM

Malcom Floyd caught three passes for 85 yards in Sunday's Week 13 win at Baltimore.

Floyd's big play was his standard, a 59-yard vertical streak bomb up the middle. He also drew a pivotal pass interference call late that directly led to the Chargers' comeback win. At this point, we know what Floyd is -- a big-play receiver that's going to catch 3-4 passes per game and hover between 50-70 yards. However, we'd downgrade those projections because the Chargers face Darrelle Revis and the Patriots in Week 14.

Malcom Floyd caught four passes for 30 yards in the Chargers' Week 12 win over the Rams.

He was targeted five times. With Philip Rivers getting rid of the ball quickly all day, there were no deep shots to be taken to Floyd. He'll be on the WR3 radar once again in Week 13 at Baltimore against a Ravens secondary playing street free agents outside at cornerback.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 08:11:00 PM

Malcom Floyd caught 4-of-6 targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 11 win over the Raiders.

The "Malcom Floyd-against-the-Raiders" narrative continues as Floyd has historically whipped Oakland's defense, and did so again Sunday, despite the fact that he had a spectacular sideline catch negated by a holding call. The 33-year-old deep threat will remain on the WR3 fringe in Week 12 against St. Louis.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 08:46:00 PM

Malcom Floyd caught four passes for 60 yards in the Chargers' shutout loss to Dolphins in Week 9.

Floyd led the Bolts in both categories on a day they mustered up just 178 total yards. Philip Rivers tosses three interceptions and lost a fumble on a horrible day for the offense. A big-time deep threat, Floyd is just a WR4/5.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 04:47:00 PM

Malcom Floyd caught 4-of-7 targets for 58 yards in San Diego's Week 8 loss to the Broncos.

Floyd used his unreal body control to nearly reel in two more catches on difficult deep targets, but had no shot on his third missed connection, a Philip Rivers pick thrown into double coverage. Floyd briefly left with a shoulder injury, but was quickly deemed probable and returned. Floyd is one of the league's very best deep threats, but it doesn't translate to more than WR4/5 value in fantasy leagues.
Fri, Oct 24, 2014 12:27:00 AM

Malcom Floyd caught 3-of-7 targets for 50 yards in San Diego's Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

Floyd also drew a 13-yard defensive pass interference call in the end zone, setting the Bolts up at the one-yard line for their first of two touchdowns. Floyd is one of the league's most-effective deep threats, but his catch and yardage totals vary wildly from week to week. He's not a reliable WR3/4.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 08:01:00 PM

Malcom Floyd caught five balls for 103 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 6 win over the Raiders.

After beating Raiders CB Tarell Brown for an early 22-yard gain, Floyd scored the Chargers' second touchdown from five yards out in the second quarter. He proceeded to whip Raiders S Charles Woodson for a 43-yard jump ball in the third quarter. Floyd has big-play ability, but his week-to-week usage is frustratingly inconsistent, and he's likely to wear down as the season progresses at 33 years old. He'll remain a boom-or-bust WR3/4 in Week 7 against the Chiefs.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 07:33:00 PM

Malcom Floyd is active for Week 6 against the Raiders.

As is Keenan Allen (groin), who was listed as probable. Floyd was listed as questionable, but was always expected to play. The Chargers' Week 6 inactives are OLB Cordarro Law, CB Steve Williams, OLB Reggie Walker, RB Donald Brown, RB Ryan Mathews, CB Shareece Wright, and ILB Manti Te’o.
