Bears | Three Chicago WRs absent

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 11:35:20 -0700

Chicago Bears WRs Alshon Jeffery (calf), Eddie Royal (hip) and Marquess Wilson (hamstring) did not practice Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery and Wilson have missed several practices in a row now while Royal is dealing with a recent hip injury. It will be promising if they return to practice before the regular season starts. Jeffery, Royal and Wilson should be viewed as a WR1, WR4 and WR5, respectively, in PPR leagues.

Bears | Eddie Royal out Thursday

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 10:34:07 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (hip) missed practice Thursday, Aug. 27, for the second straight day. He's not ruled out for the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Royal had some success with Jay Cutler in Denver. Royal is an excellent WR4 and could creep into the WR3 conversation in PPR leagues.

Bears | Eddie Royal dealing with injury

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:55:37 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 26, because of a hip injury. His status for the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, is uncertain at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Royal is expected to have a bigger role this season with Kevin White out for the season. Royal posted solid numbers when he played with Jay Cutler earlier in his career and could be a middle- to late-round option depending on the size of a league.

Bears | OC talks Eddie Royal

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 10:30:07 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal could have a Wes Welker kind of impact on the Bears' offense this season, according to offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Gase said Royal has a special explosiveness that a lot of inside receivers don't have, making him a threat at all three levels of an opposing defense.

Fantasy Tip: Gase has coached both Welker and Royal, so he may know what he's looking at. Royal should be the starting slot receiver for Chicago with Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White on the outside. He may be more utilized than he was last season under Gase, but the Bears are also expected to run more with new head coach John Fox. Consider Royal a prospective WR4 in PPR leagues.

Bears | Eddie Royal showing athleticism

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 18:37:47 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal made several impressive plays Thursday, Aug. 6, on passes that weren't on target. In seven-on-seven drills, Royal slide to catch a couple of passes, and he also caught a long touchdown pass from QB Jay Cutler in the back corner of the end zone, while in tight coverage.

Fantasy Tip: Offensive coordinator Adam Gase has made a commitment to maximizing matchups for Royal this season, and he'll be used in both the slot and on the outside. Royal's FantasyScore value will come in GPP tournaments.

Bears | Eddie Royal to be third starting WR?

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 13:42:10 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal is expected to be the Bears' third starting wide receiver, according to ESPNChicago.com's Jeff Dickerson.

Fantasy Tip: It seems like the ideal situation for the Bears at wide receiver would be to start Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White on the outside with Royal playing in the slot. Royal was a hit or miss player with the San Diego Chargers, but he could end up being an under-the-radar player in PPR leagues.

Bears | Eddie Royal could be returner

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 10:07:44 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal could be a candidate for the kick returner job this season if the coaching staff is comfortable with him in that role.

Fantasy Tip: Royal is expected to have a solid role in the passing game this season, so the coaches may want to look for other players to fill the role. Royal could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues this season since he has played with Jay Cutler earlier in his career.

Bears | Jay Cutler works out with teammates

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 09:08:19 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler worked out with some of his offensive teammates at Vanderbilt University this week. WR Eddie Royal, WR Kevin White and TE Martellus Bennett were among the players in attendance.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler has had some down performances the last few seasons but should have several weapons to work with this season. Cutler probably is not a starting quarterback in fantasy at this point but could be a solid No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Bears | Eddie Royal working with QB

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 11:27:32 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal said he has been working with QB Jay Cutler this offseason in order to build chemistry. Royal said they have been watching extra film and doing extra work on the field. Royal recorded 91 receptions, 980 yards and five touchdowns when they both played for the Denver Broncos in 2008.

Fantasy Tip: Royal had chemistry with Cutler earlier in his career and will try to resume that chemistry with the Bears. Royal probably will not start for the Bears but should have a solid role in the offense. Royal could be a late-round option in point-per-reception leagues and has the potential to have more value.

Bears | CHI needs group effort at WR

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 16:21:53 -0700

The Chicago Bears will be counting on a group effort from WRs Kevin White, Eddie Royal and Marquess Wilson to make up for Brandon Marshall's lost production. WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to fully takeover as the No. 1 receiver in Chicago.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery will enter the 2015 season as a top-5 receiver, while White is almost sure to be over drafted in his rookie season. Royal already has some chemistry with Jay Cutler from his time in Denver, and he should be considered as a sleeper heading into drafts.
