Malcom Floyd expected to play this season

Floyd feeling like ‘old self’: After his 2013 season was cut short by a serious neck injury, reports say Malcom Floyd will play for the Chargers in 2014. Despite entering his 10th season in the NFL, Floyd has always struggled with injuries and has played a full 16 games just once in his career. Signs point to the veteran competing with Vincent Brown to fill the No. 2 receiver role behind Keenan Allen, however it seems more likely that Floyd will fall down the depth chart a slot or two. Getting back on the field is certainly encouraging, but from a fantasy perspective, it’s unlikely that Floyd will draw a lot of interest in drafts.

Little joins Raiders: Last week, Greg Little was released by the Browns. A couple of days later, he was claimed off waivers by the Raiders. For Oakland, there’s not much risk to adding a player like Little to fill out a receiving corps in need of depth. But the Raiders also recently cut ties to a receiver who had problems catching the ball when they cut Darrius Heyward-Bey after the 2012 season. Since a promising rookie season, Little’s numbers have steadily declined. Now entering his fourth campaign, there is immense pressure for him to perform. He’ll need to show progression on the field before fantasy owners can take a chance on him.

Cowboys sign Williams: Running back Ryan Williams has found a home in Dallas just days after being released by the Arizona Cardinals. The former second round pick has failed to stay on the field in any notable way. In three NFL seasons, Williams has played in a total of five games — all of them coming in 2012. With little chance to unseat DeMarco Murray for the top job, Williams could find himself in a pitched battle with Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar for the backup gig. Because of his health track record, things don’t look promising.
