2015 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Jun-25-2015 by Shawn Childs
The Chargers found a way to use Royal's quickness over the last two years to create great value at the goal line (15 TDs). After three straight subpar years, Eddie was finally able to become Fantasy-relevant again in 2014. Royal caught 62 of his 91 targets for 778 yards and seven TDs. His success led to him becoming the 32nd-ranked WR in PPR leagues. Eddie had three games with double digit targets and one game with 100 yards receiving. As good as his progression may look, Royal caught three passes or less in eight games. I believe his opportunity was created by the injury to RB Danny Woodhead. In his rookie season with Cutler throwing him the ball, Eddie set a career high in catches (91), yards (980), and targets (129). His opportunity will take a step back this year. He is no more than a gamble as a bye week cover. I expect him to catch less than 50 passes for less than 600 yards.
