Evan Royster Injury Update: Knee Injury Limiting Fantasy Value

Rafael Suanes-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Evan Royster is probable for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Evan Royster (knee) put in a full week of practice and is listed as probable. He is fully expected to play against the Vikings.

Royster has been quiet this year with just seven carries for 39 yards and eight catches for 42 yards. He has not scored this season in his backup role.

Fantasy Impact: Royster is dealing with patella tendonitis, so it's nothing that should be considered serious. What is serious? Well, Alfred Morris has run away with the starting job and ranks four in the NFL in rushing.

The Vikings play tough run D and rank sixth against the run. They've shut down Chris Johnson (who hasn't?) last week, so the Skins aren't likely to utilize a run-heavy attack. Royster is nothing more than a handcuff to ALF.
