Chargers | Eddie Royal clutch on third downs

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 10:01:30 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal is 11-for-11 on third-down targets for 170 yards this season with three touchdowns and seven first downs, and QB Philip Rivers has come to trust the veteran wide receiver in those situations. Royal's third-down catches, yardage and touchdown totals in a four-game span since the team lost RB Danny Woodhead (leg) are the most in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Royal has become a safety blanket for Rivers in clutch situations when they need to move the chains. That should continue with Woodhead out for the season, and Royal continues to have flex appeal. However, he's dealing with a rib injury and may be questionable in Week 7.

Chargers | Eddie Royal's injury not serious

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:47:49 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal's (rib) injury isn't considered serious, according to a source. Royal could miss little, if any, time.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Royal is in danger of missing Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Keep track of his practice statuses this week, but he's shaping up to be a risky play at FantasyScore for $5,600 (11.2% of cap). If he doesn't play, Keenan Allen could put up some big numbers.

Chargers | Eddie Royal sharp in practice

Tue, 27 May 2014 19:24:52 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal clicked with QB Philip Rivers in his first practice since suffering a Week 6 toe injury last year. He looked fast and fluid on short routes.

Fantasy Tip: He scored five of his eight touchdowns last year before the injury, and it's encouraging to see him up to speed and in sync with Rivers, especially on shorter routes. He could be worth a weekly flier, especially in PPR leagues.

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Friday, Dec. 20, but is still expected to play in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: This has been the case with Royal for much of the season, so not much has changed. He's a desperation flex play in very deep leagues.

Chargers | No practice for Eddie Royal

Wed, 18 Dec 2013 17:56:37 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) was unable to take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: At one point earlier this season, Royal was fantasy gold. But he has quickly lost his luster, and is only worth keeping around in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Chargers | Eddie Royal limited

Tue, 10 Dec 2013 14:37:30 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) was limited in practice Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: This marks progress for Royal, who returned to action last weekend. However, he hasn't been practicing during the week, so this suggests his toe injury could be improving. Consider him a weak flex play in deeper leagues.

Wed, 04 Dec 2013 13:29:03 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe, chest) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Not practicing all week and playing on Sundays was the norm for Royal until last weekend. There's still a decent chance he'll play against the New York Giants. Royal has been very inconsistent, and even though the G-Men present a decent matchup, it's safer to leave Royal to your bench if you can afford to.

Fri, 29 Nov 2013 14:18:43 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe, chest) did not practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Royal has been questionable the past few weeks but has made it a habit of still playing. Expect him to play. Predicting how much he'll be used is another question entirely. His upside is limited to a WR3 or flex on most weeks.

Fri, 22 Nov 2013 13:08:44 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Friday, Nov. 22, and is questionable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Royal has been able to suit up on Sundays in the past month despite not practicing, but he's also been listed as probable. The questionable tag gives you a little more reason to worry and bench him in the tough matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Royal has made it a habit of not practicing during the week but playing on Sundays. The matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs isn't kind, though, and Royal is a flex play, at best, in deeper leagues.

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is listed questionable for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Royal has been able to play despite missing practice the last few weeks, but owners should wait until the inactive list before making a decision on Royal. If he is able to play, he could be considered a flex option for owners this week.

Wed, 13 Nov 2013 16:42:40 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Royal has been playing despite not practicing the last month, so don't be discouraged by his practice status. His involvement in the passing game has been minimal since the emergence of Keenan Allen, however. Consider Royal a weak flex play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 11.

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is questionable for Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a good chance that Royal plays against his former club, the Denver Broncos, this weekend. Royal should be seen as a decent WR3 or flex play.

Chargers | Eddie Royal sits out

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 14:27:04 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 7.

Fantasy Tip: It's becoming commonplace for Royal to sit out practice for most of the week but still suit up on game days Sunday. That'll probably be the case this weekend against the Denver Broncos, too. He's a WR3 or flex.

Chargers | Eddie Royal misses practice

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 13:58:39 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Don't worry here. Royal didn't practice last week before scoring a touchdown against the Washington Redskins. He hasn't seen as many looks lately because of rookie Keenan Allen's success, but he remains a big part of the offense and has a nice matchup against the Denver Broncos this weekend. He should be in your lineup as a WR3 or flex.
