Eddie Royal listed questionable for Week 8 with hamstring injury: Fantasy implications

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Eddie Royal is questionable for Sunday's game between the San Diego Chargers and the Cleveland Browns due to a hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Eddie Royal is questionable for Sunday's game between the San Diego Chargers and the Cleveland Browns due to a hamstring injury, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Royal was limited in practice Thursday, and held out of practice Friday.

Royal apparently suffered the injury sometime during bye week practices. He could be a game-time decision for the Chargers' 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

Fantasy Impact: The good news for owners relying on Royal this week is that the receiver will play in the first wave of games. There will be time to find a replacement if the he is marked inactive, though those in standard leagues hopefully have better options at their disposal.

Royal has had no more than three receptions and five targets in any single game this season. The likes of Malcom Floyd, Robert Meachem and Antonio Gates are significantly more involved in the passing game, rendering Royal to relative fantasy irrelevance.
