Pros: Floyd has tremendous size, solid speed and is coming off a career-high nine games started last year, so he gained some much needed starting experience. Vincent Jackson will miss at least three games (suspension), and there appears to be a strong chance he will miss more games than that due to contract gripes. That will make Floyd the team's No. 1 receiver amongst the wideouts by default - many would argue Antonio Gates is their top receiver despite being a tight end.

Cons: Can he succeed without V-Jax? Floyd, in the league since 2004, has been slow to develop and doesn't have more than 45 receptions, 776 yards or four touchdowns to his resume in any single season. He caught 45 balls a year ago and scored just once.

Fantasy tip: Floyd has fantasy football sleeper written all over him, and he comes at a nice value being selected in the ninth round. However, his fantasy football value is on the rise because of all of the drama following Jackson. He is ideally taken as a fourth or fifth receiver, but could work his way into a No. 3 receiver spot or better if the stars align.
