San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem did not appear on the stat sheet in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. "He's in it, but it comes down to what we're using in terms of personnel groups," head coach Norv Turner said Monday, Nov. 26. "We have a comfort level with (WR Malcom Floyd). Malcom plays all the positions. We've tried to get (WR Danario Alexander) going and he's made some plays for us. That's where we're at right now."

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd has taken over as the team's "Z" receiver. The "Z" typically lines up on the same side as TE Antonio Gates, and Floyd was moved there in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to create mismatches and make opponents pick their poison. The position was previously manned by WR Robert Meachem. "With Antonio and I lining up next to each other, we put a strain on whatever side we're on," Floyd said.

San Diego Chargers WR Danario Alexander (knee) said his left knee, which he's undergone five surgeries on dating back to sophomore year in college, feels just as good as his right knee these days. He has eight catches for 195 yards and a touchdown in his last two games with the Chargers, and he started over WR Robert Meachem in Week 10.

San Diego Chargers WR Robert Meachem has a $5 million base salary that is fully guaranteed for 2013. The potential of a new coaching staff and personnel staff complicates his future.

San Diego Chargers WR Danario Alexander said he is still learning the team's playbook and working at getting on the same page as QB Philip Rivers. Rivers and Alexander worked together closely the past two weeks to build chemistry. Alexander caught three passes for a team-high 61 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9, which he said is just the beginning. Rivers was impressed with Alexander's performance. "Danario was big and he was great. He had a third down slant way down in there inside the ten, then a couple more end routes, an out route that got us going. He was good, he was comfortable. It's just amazing," Rivers said of his new weapon.
Fantasy Tip: Alexander is worth the look if you're hurting at wide receiver. Robert Meachem has been a huge disappointment thus far for the Chargers, plus he is dealing with an injury, as is WR Eddie Royal. Vincent Brown, who the team hoped would be able to return, appears to still be at least several weeks away from hitting the field if he does at all.

San Diego Chargers WRs Robert Meachem (hamstring) and Eddie Royal (hamstring) are expected to take part in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7. Head coach Norv Turner said both receivers were close to playing Week 9.
