Here’s a fantasy football sneaky sleeper I really like: Chargers WR Malcolm Floyd.

With two DUI convictions in two years, Vincent Jackson will likely be suspended at some point this summer. "V-Jax" will probably be hit with a four-gamer making Floyd a guy I’d begin to target around the 11th round as my fifth or sixth WR.

In those four weeks, Floyd will face the second easiest schedule with match-ups vs KC, Jac, Sea, and Ari. Those teams gave up an average of 35 points a games to WRs.

I’ve always liked Floyd but behind Gates, V-Jack, and the backs. He doesn’t get a lot of looks. But in Week 17 last year as SDs number one WR, Floyd put up nine catches for 140 yards, a cool 23 points in PPR. Also, at 6’5", he’s a huge red zone target.

He likely won’t have much value after that, but I’d start him as my flex for those first four weeks.
