Malcom Floyd, Eddie Royal limited in Chargers' Week 7 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Chargers receiver Malcom Floyd caught just three of his seven targets for 50 yards Sunday while wide receiver Eddie Royal gained 20 yards while catching just one of his five targets in San Diego's 23-20 loss to Kansas City in Week 7.

The team's secondary threats failed to get much going on a day where quarterback Philip Rivers recorded a season-low 205 passing yards. The Chargers will head to Denver for a Thursday night battle in Week 8.


Chargers announce Week 7 inactives vs. Chiefs


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Chargers have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 7 matchup with the Chiefs: cornerback Jason Verrett (shoulder), running backs Ryan Mathews (knee) and Donald Brown (concussion), linebackers Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) and Manti Te'o (foot), wide receiver Dontrelle Inman and defensive tackle Ricardo Mathews.

The two running backs and Te'o were ruled out on the team's final injury report, while Attaochu was doubtful to play. Verrett is inactive after being questionable on the final injury report, but cornerback Brandon Flowers (groin) and linebackers Dwight Freeney (knee) and Cordarro Law (ankle) are all active after also being questionable.

Five Chargers are active after drawing a probable tag, including wide receiver Eddie Royal (elbow), linebacker Reggie Walker (ankle), cornerback Shareece Wright (knee) and offensive linemen D.J. Fluker (ankle) and Rich Ohrnberger (back).

The probables are offensive linemen Rich Ohrnberger (back) and D.J. Fluker (ankle), wideout Eddie Royal (elbow), linebacker Reggie Walker (ankle) and cornerback Shareece Wright (knee).


Chargers WR Eddie Royal all but set for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) An elbow issue has not prevented Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal from carrying a full workload in practice this week, per the San Diego Union-Tribune. Royals is all but assured of playing Sunday against Kansas City.

Royal has been on his most productive pace since his rookie season of 2008 with Denver. He has 22 catches for 325 yards and five touchdowns.


Eddie Royal participating Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Chargers wideout Eddie Royal, who hurt his ribs in the win over the Raiders, was taped up and in full gear for the start of practice, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. The Chargers host the Chiefs on Sunday.

Report: Eddie Royal's injury not considered severe


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) The rib injury Chargers wideout Eddie Royal sustained Sunday is not considered severe, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. He could miss little to no time, the report added.

The Chargers host the Chiefs in Week 7.


Chargers WR Eddie Royal departs with groin issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Chargers wideout Eddie Royal was knocked out of Week 6 against the Raiders in Oakland due to an injury to the ribs, U-T San Diego reports.

Royal caught a 29-yard touchdown pass from Philip Rivers in the first quarter before leaving the game. He sustained the injury in the third quarter and was ruled questionable to return to the game. He caught all two of the passes thrown his way for 49 yards before the injury.


Keenan Allen, Eddie Royal both iffy starts


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2014) The Raiders are a poor defensive team. This much is certain.

But they're also a poor offensive team, which means that when the opposition pulls ahead, it generally stays ahead. So while the Raiders rank 31st against the run, allowing 158.3 yards per game, they rank a surprising fifth against the pass, allowing 207.0 yards per game. It doesn't mean they're good against quarterbacks; it just means quarterbacks don't have to be good against them.

The Chargers are built to pass. This much is also certain.

But now that Branden Oliver has entered the scene, they have enough of a running game to defer to it if they jump out to an early lead. That's what happened to wide receivers Keenan Allen and Eddie Royal in a blowout win in Week 5. Antonio Gates scored the touchdowns early, and that was it.

The chances of it happening again are real enough that you should think twice about starting Allen or Royal despite what appears to be a favorable matchup. It's not that either are bad starts necessarily, but if you have options at wide receiver, the "OAK" next to their names shouldn't steer you toward them.


Score works against Eddie Royal


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) Wide receiver Eddie Royal, who had been playing about three quarters of the Chargers' snaps over the last three weeks, played about half of them Week 5 against the Jets, which may explain why he got only three targets.

Normally quarterback Philip Rivers' preferred option underneath, Royal wasn't needed much after the Chargers jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first half. The emergence of running back Branden Oliver, who turned four short passes into 68 yards, may have cut into his production as well, but more than anything, the score worked against Royal in this one.

Don't lose faith in him if you recently picked him up in Fantasy. The back-to-back two-touchdown games were obviously too good to be true, but Royal should play a big enough role in the passing game going forward to remain a halfway respectable flex option in Fantasy.


Chargers' Eddie Royal limited Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Chargers wideout Eddie Royal was limited Week 5 against the Jets.

Royal caught three passes for 40 yards during the contest. He was targeted just three times. Most of his production came on a 32 yard reception on the last play before halftime. He failed to score, and only had one reception in the second half.

Royal will take on the Raiders Week 6. 


What to do if big-time WRs sit out Sunday?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) With Texans receiver Andre Johnson and Calvin Johnson of the Lions game-time decisions for their games this Sunday, Fantasy owners might be left scrambling for a replacement if they are ruled out. Luckily, both players play 1 pm EST Sunday, giving plenty of time for Fantasy owners to find a suitable replacement, if need be.

Some players you might want to look in to as possible fill-ins for the Johnsons are: Giants WR Rueben Randle (74 percent owned) vs. Atlanta; Rams WR Brian Quick (63 percent) at Philadelphia; Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (59 percent) at Tennessee; and Chargers WR Eddie Royal (81 percent) vs. N.Y. Jets. 


Which receivers are worth adding this week?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal has been targeted at least six times in every game so far this season, and his big performance in recent weeks is enough to convince Jamey Eisenberg to put him at the top of his waiver-wire priority list ahead of week five.

Additionally, Jamey tabs Brian Quick of the Rams, Rueben Randle of the Giants, Malcom Floyd of the Chargers and Andrew Hawkins of the Browns rounds out the top five at wide receiver, with Odell Beckham of the Giants, Davante Adams of the Packers and Brandon LaFell of the Patriots possible sleepers.

If you need to clear a spot on your roster for any moves this week, consider parting ways with Kendall Wright, Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Riley Cooper


Eddie Royal cementing role


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/29/2014) After surprising with two touchdowns on four catches Week 3 at Buffalo, Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal found the end zone twice again Week 4 against Jacksonville. But this time, that wasn't the full extent of his production. He caught five passes for 105 yards, and his seven targets were second-most to Keenan Allen's 11.

He seems to have carved out a role in the slot at a time when quarterback Philip Rivers needs all the options he can get. The Chargers -- namely Donald Brown -- have been unable to muster any sort of running game with Ryan Mathews sidelined by an MCL sprain.

So while you shouldn't expect two touchdowns from Royal every week, I would expect the targets to continue for him for at least the next few weeks, making him a serviceable third wide receiver or bye-week replacement.

Of course, he hasn't had fewer than six targets in any of his four games this season, so perhaps he was an underrated Fantasy option to begin with.


Eddie Royal scores twice Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal picked up two scores Week 4 against the Jaguars.

Royal first struck at the beginning of the second quarter. He hauled in a 47 yard pass from Philip Rivers for the first Charger touchdown of the contest. He would strike again later in the quarter. With time running down, Royal scored from 43 yards out. He finished with five receptions for 105 yards. Due to his two long scoring plays, Royal averaged 21 yards per reception. 

Royal will take on the Jets Week 5. 


Eddie Royal hauls in two scores in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal emerged as a red-zone favorite of quarterback Philip Rivers Sunday, in a 22-10 win over the Bills in Week 3.

Royal, who had yet to score a touchdown this season, brought in both of Rivers' touchdown passes Sunday. He scored from 3 and 5 yards out, while finishing the game with four receptions on six targets for 42 yards.

The Chargers have spread the ball around a bunch early on this season, and Royal was the beneficiary Sunday. He has 12 receptions for 131 yards heading into Week 4 against the Jaguars.


Eddie Royal catches seven balls Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal snagged seven passes Week 2.

Royal was a consistent threat underneath, gaining 69 yards during the game. Royal led the club with 10 targets. Despite the high workload, Royal wasn't much of a threat in the red zone. Philip Rivers opted to go to Antonio Gates instead. 

Royal will take on the Bills Week 3. 


Eddie Royal does little with six targets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Chargers receiver Eddie Royal drew six targets, tied for third on the team, in Monday's loss to the Cardinals. But he hauled in only one throw for 20 yards. Royals rushed twice for minus-1 yard.

He'll face the Seahawks in Week 2.


Eddie Royal restructures his contract


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/4/2014) Chargers receiver Eddie Royal likely staved off his release from the team by restructuring his contract. According to U-T San Diego, Royal was set to count $6 million against the cap with a $4.5 million base salary. It is believed that Royal took a pay cut. 

Chargers have 'decision to make' on Eddie Royal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Chargers general manager Tom Telesco praised receiver Eddie Royal but said "we've got a decision to make on several guys" when asked about Royal's $4.5 million salary, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. Royal could be released despite catching 47 passes for 631 yards and eight touchdowns last year.

The team needs a bigger receiver to complement Keenan Allen.


Chargers could make moves to save money


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) The Chargers could part with center Nick Hardwick and receiver Eddie Royal to save money this offseason, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora.

LaCanfora reports that the Chargers could save $4.4 million by releasing Hardwick, who is currently scheduled to cost $6.2 million against the cap. LaCanfora says about Hardwick that "I figure he isn't back" next year.

As for Royal, LaCanfora reports the Chargers could save $4.5 million in cap space by parting ways. Royal had 47 catches for 631 yards and eight touchdowns for San Diego in 2013.


Eddie Royal 'looking good' to be retained


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Chargers receiver Eddie Royal is owed $4.5 million in 2014, making him a possible cap casualty, but ESPN.com says his roster spot is "looking good." The website notes Royal "gamely played with turf toe for most of the season, can return punts and still is a productive player."

Royal, who turns 28 in May, caught 47 passes for 631 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns.


Eddie Royal ready for playoff game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) Chargers receiver Eddie Royal, who was questionable with a toe injury, is active as expected for the playoff game at Denver. Royal caught eight touchdown passes in 15 regular-season games, then had a 33-yard catch in last week's win in Cincinnati.

Six Chargers questionable for playoff battle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2014) The Chargers list six starters as questionable for their Sunday game in Denver, including offensive linemen Jeromey Clary (shoulder), D.J. Fluker (ankle) and Nick Hardwick (neck, concussion).

Also questionable are wide receiver Eddie Royal (toe), running back Ryan Mathews (ankle) and defensive tackle Sean Lissemore (shoulder).


Quintet of Chargers take Wednesday off


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2014) Five Chargers were sidelined from Wednesday practice, but four of the absences were considered rest days, per the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Those given the red light were center Nick Hardwick, wide receiver Eddie Royal, tackle D.J. Fluker, safety Eric Weddle and running back Ryan Mathews. All are expected to play in the Sunday playoff game at Denver.

Hardwick is going through concussion protocol. He was diagnosted with the concussion after the playoff win in Cincinnati.


Chargers offensive studs fizzle against Bengals


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) The Chargers didn't need their normal output from their offensive stars to pull off a victory against the Bengals.

Eddie Royal was the most successful of the bunch, catching one pass for 33 yards. Keenan Allen managed to catch two balls, but only gained 21 yards. Antonio Gates was well-covered by the Bengals, and caught just one pass for 5 yards. The Chargers did not rely on the passing game, which meant none of their pass catchers had big games. Each player will look to rebound next week against Denver.
