Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 10: Eddie Royal

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

Should fantasy owners trust Eddie Royal this week during an inconsistent season?

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal got off to a blazing start this season, scoring five touchdowns in the first two games. He has cooled off since then, disappointing fantasy owners who grabbed him off the waiver wire early, but the most recent indications are positive. In the past two games, he has eight catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns, bringing his season total to 26 catches for 341 yards and a career-high seven scores.

Unfortunately, Royal is dealing with a toe injury and hasn't been practicing this week. He will likely be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy impact: Royal played through the injury last week and got another touchdown, so he will probably suit up again. One of the ultimate boom-or-bust plays in fantasy, Royal isn't much more than a WR4 -- his value is entirely dependent on him finding the end zone. Fortunately for him, Philip Rivers will be playing catch-up with Peyton Manning all day, so there should be plenty of targets to go around. Either way, he's only an option for fantasy owners in deep leagues facing depth issues.
