Description: Chargers receiver Eddie Royal benefited from the absence of Keenan Allen on Saturday night.
Insight: He had team-highs of 10 receptions for 94 yards. Royal also found the end zone and had 12 targets. He is a reliable option for Philip Rivers.
 
12/8/2014 9:50:00 AM
Description: Chargers receiver Eddie Royal wasn't a big part of the offense in this one, catching just two of five targets for 30 yards.
Insight: Keenan Allen was out of the picture for most of the night, so fantasy owners might have thought Royal, who caught nine balls and a touchdown last week, would be a major factor, but it was not to be. His back-to-back two-touchdown games in Week 3 and Week 4 are but a distant memory.
 
11/30/2014 6:41:00 PM
Description: Chargers receiver Eddie Royal was one of four San Diego receivers to finish with at least 80 yards.
Insight: Keenan Allen was clearly Philip Rivers favorite target as he hauled in 11 catches for 121 yards, but Royal nine receptions for 83 yards and scored the game-winning touchdown. Malcolm Floyd and Antonio Gates also had more than 80 yards receiving.

Description: San Diego receiver Eddie Royal's caught just three balls for 29 yards in The Thursday night loss to Denver.
Insight: Royal has been quiet over the past four games with just 138 yards and one touchdown over the span. That's not fantasy worthy.
 
10/6/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: San Diego receiver Eddie Royal's two-touchdown streak had to come to an end sometime and that time was Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: Royal was quiet with three catches for 40 yards, but still has a solid 276 yards and four touchdowns for the season.
 
Hot9/29/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: San Diego receiver Eddie Royal has become a big part of the Chargers offense and fantasy owners should take note.
Insight: Royal caught five balls for 105 yards and two scores against Jacksonville. That's on top of last weekend's two touchdown receptions. He's getting consistent targets (29 through four games) and starting to produce. Time to put him on your roster.
 
9/16/2014 2:42:00 PM
Description: San Diego receiver Eddie Royal was a big part of the Chargers offense Sunday, seeing 10 targets and catching six of them for 69 yards.
Insight: Royal had a surprisingly good season with San Diego last year with 47 receptions for 631 and eight TDs. The return of Malcom Floyd hasn't changed that at all and Royal could be a WR3.
 
12/8/2013 3:48:00 PM
Description: San Diego receiver Eddie Royal is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Insight: Royal sat out last week with a chest injury. He got off to a hot start with five touchdowns in his first two games but has only scored twice since then.
 
12/1/2013 3:22:00 PM
Description: Chargers wideout Eddie Royal is inactive for Sunday's game against Cincinnati.
Insight: He's battling a chest injury. The only San Diego wide receiver worth starting in fantasy is Keenan Allen.

Description: Chargers receiver Eddie Royal (foot) is active for Week 12.
Insight: Royal has been held down by the injury, catching just four balls for 56 yards over the past two weeks. His fantasy value has dropped to its lowest level of the season and many fantasy owners are rightfully not starting him.
 
11/8/2013 4:50:00 PM
Description: Chargers receiver Eddie Royal (foot) is questionable for Week 10.
Insight: Royal has been questionable for each of the last two games but played both and had at least 56 yards and a touchdown in both. His fantasy value is entirely dependent on whether or not he scores.
 
11/3/2013 11:46:00 AM
Description: Chargers receiver Eddie Royal is active for Week 9.
Insight: After grabbing five touchdowns over the first two games, Royal has done little over the past five contests. He did put up double digits in the game before the Chargers went on bye.
 
9/22/2013 6:24:00 PM
Description: Chargers receiver Eddie Royal caught two passes for 34 yards against the Titans in Week 3.
Insight: Welcome back to Earth. After grabbing five touchdowns over the first two games, Royal was only targeted twice Sunday. It's tougher to produce when the defense keys in on you. Royal actually led Chargers wideouts but was fourth on the team in yards . Running back Danny Woodhead and tight ends Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green combined for 158 yards.
 
9/15/2013 5:42:00 PM
Description: With three more touchdowns Sunday at Philadelphia, Chargers receiver Eddie Royal tied his career high for a season.
Insight: Royal shockingly has five touchdowns in the first two games this season. He scored that many combined in his previous four NFL seasons after grabbing five as a rookie. While Royal isn't likely to keep this up, he clearly has the favor of quarterback Philip Rivers.
 
9/9/2013 11:49:00 AM
Description: San Diego wideout Eddie Royal is probable for Monday night's game with Houston after practicing all week.
Insight: Royal suffered a concussion and a chest injury in preseason, but should be ready to go. He'll be the slot receiver with Malcom Floyd and Vincent Brown starting on the outside.
 
8/17/2013 8:48:00 PM
Description: San Diego wideout Eddie Royal suffered a concussion as well as a bruised lung Saturday at practice.
Insight: Chargers receivers are dropping like flies this summer. First it was Danario Alexander (torn ACL), then it was Malcom Floyd (sprained knee) and now Royal is the latest Chargers wideout to go down. Philip Rivers' job as quarterback just got a whole lot tougher.
 
8/17/2013 2:49:00 PM
Description: Chargers receiver Eddie Royal left Saturday's practice in an ambulance, according to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union Tribune.
Insight: Royal apparently hit the ground hard in 11-on-11 drills and he fell again on his way back to the locker room.
 
12/2/2012 3:35:00 PM
Description: San Diego receiver Eddie Royal won't play Sunday against Cincinnati. He's been suffering from an injured hamstring.
