Chargers WR Crayton has sleeper value

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Malcom Floyd (hamstring) and Legedu Naanee (hamstring) both missed practice on Thursday.

Floyd won’t be active in Week 7, and Naanee is looking like he could be either questionable or a game-time decision at best. If Naanee is out of action, it would mean a lot of targets for Patrick Crayton, who had six catches for 117 yards against the Rams.

Against the Patriots, who have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to wide receivers, Crayton could be as much as a No. 3 fantasy option. Buster Davis will also be worth a look in deeper formats.

Acee also reports that Antonio Gates (ankle) was held out of practice, so fantasy owners need to keep tabs on his status over the next few days. On a positive note, Ryan Mathews (ankle) did return to practice and is expected to start.
