San Diego WR Eddie Royal had a solid game Sunday at Kansas City but dropped a crucial touchdown pass from Philip Rivers in the 4th quarter. The touchdown would of cut the Kansas City lead to five giving the Chargers momentum with plenty of time left in the game. A few plays later Royal left the game after slamming the back of his head on the ground in the end zone trying to haul in a pass.
Fantasy Impact: Royal was targeted eight times Sunday catching four passes for 95 yards. He almost scored on a 44 yard catch and run but couldn't get inside the pylon and was ruled out at the one yard line. Royal had a solid statistical game but it could of been a lot better with at least one of those touchdowns.

WR Eddie Royal had a big game catching 10 balls from 12 targets for 94 yards and one touchdown helping San Diego overcome a huge deficit in San Francisco Saturday evening
Fantasy Impact: If a fantasy owner took a huge chance on starting Royal was rewarded nicely. However, with the inconsistent play of the wideout over the season, it would have been hard to start Royal in the first place.

WR Eddie Royal had 1 catch from 5 targets for 20 yards and no touchdowns
Fantasy Impact: Royal had some big weeks early in the season, but has had limited production the last few weeks. QB Philip Rivers has so many choices from week to week, it is hard to pinpoint the player who is going to get the most targets and production each week. Fantasy owners might need to start looking elsewhere for a flex option instead of using Royal.

WR Eddie Royal had another outstanding day Sunday against Jacksonville catching 5 of 7 targets for 105 yards and two touchdowns.
Fantasy Impact: Royal is fast becoming one of QB Philip Rivers' favorite targets. In two weeks Royal has 4 touchdown receptions. With several weapons in his arsenal, it will be interesting to see if Rivers will continue to rely on Royal in the coming weeks.
