San Diego Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal practiced on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal practiced on Wednesday after injuring his shoulder against the Tennessee Titans in Week 2, via Kevin Acee. Royal was a new addition to the team this year, and should be active yet again in Week 3 when the Chargers take on the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Analysis: Whether or not Royal is good to go on Sunday against the Falcons, his fantasy value remains limited. For the most part, this passing offense is centered around Antonio Gates, Robert Meachem and Malcom Floyd. He could have sleeper value this weekend if the Falcons draw them into a shootout and Asante Samuel and Dunta Robinson take Meachem and Floyd away. However, starting him even as a flex, is a risky move.
