San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is questionable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: There is still a good chance Royal plays. However, he doesn't deserve to be in your starting lineup with a championship title on the line this weekend.

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 18:08:46 -0800

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.

Chargers | Eddie Royal misses practice

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.

Chargers | Eddie Royal downgraded

Sat, 30 Nov 2013 12:05:30 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe, chest) was downgraded to doubtful for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Royal is a decent PPR WR3/flex most weeks, but he needs to come out of your lineups for now.

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.

Sun, 24 Nov 2013 08:43:23 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) is active for the team's Week 12 game.

Chargers | Eddie Royal questionable

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.

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 20.

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.

Fri, 15 Nov 2013 13:00:17 -0800

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.

Chargers | Eddie Royal misses practice

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.

Chargers | Eddie Royal questionable

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 12:25:38 -0800

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.

Chargers | Eddie Royal expected to play

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 08:17:27 -0800

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) appears ready to play Week 9 even though he did not participate in practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: Royal has been able to play without practicing earlier this season, so there may not be as much risky as originally thought. He will have a good matchup this week and should be considered a No. 3 wide receiver or flex option for owners.

Chargers | Eddie Royals misses practice

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 13:59:02 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice again Thursday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Royal missed practice all of two weeks ago and still had a productive day against the Jacksonville Jaguars, so he still has a chance to play against the Washington Redskins this weekend. Keep that in mind. He'll be a WR3 or flex option if he plays.

Chargers | Eddie Royal misses practice

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 16:33:41 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 17, and is in a protective boot after being injured in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: The Bolts have an excellent matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend, but it looks as though you won't be able to utilize Royal. He's been fading since Weeks 2 and 3, too, in favor of rookie wideout Keenan Allen. Allen is turning into a must-start in deep enough point-per-reception leagues.

Chargers | Keenan Allen making a name for himself

Tue, 15 Oct 2013 09:48:03 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen topped 100 yards receiving for the second straight week and also added a touchdown in the win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6 Monday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Allen is for real, so it seems. He was Rivers' favorite target against the Colts and it appears to have replaced Eddie Royal as the go-to receiver with Malcom Floyd (neck) out for the season. Allen should be owned in most leagues now, and his value peaks in point-per-reception formats.

Chargers | Eddie Royal returned

Tue, 15 Oct 2013 09:14:01 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal (toe) returned to the team's Week 6 game after leaving in the second quarter with a toe injury.

Fantasy Tip: Royal should be fine. Not fine for his owners: The emergence of rookie wideout Keenan Allen, who was targeted early and often as Philip Rivers' favorite weapon in the passing game in the win over the Indianapolis Colts. Royal has become somewhat of a forgetten man ever since his outburst in the first two weeks of the season. He wasn't targeted at all Monday night.

Chargers | Eddie Royal cools off

Sun, 22 Sep 2013 15:24:32 -0700

San Diego Chargers WR Eddie Royal posted just two receptions for 34 yards in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, and he was targeted just two times.

Fantasy Tip: Royal was one of the most popular waiver wire additions this past week, and people reluctantly grabbed him despite skepticism he could keep up his torrid pace. The doubters turned out to be prophecies, as he came up with a near goose egg for his new fantasy owners in this one. Royal did catch a touchdown pass but it wiped out because of an offensive pass interference penalty.
