Royal spent much of 2015 injured, and when he did play, it was not impressive, but he is currently slated to start in the slot for Jay Cutler's Bears. It will be a tall task to hold off both Marquess Wilson and Marc Mariani, but if he can, you've got to monitor Royal for pickup.

Fantasy Impact: Bears head coach John Fox said this after practice: "He's progressing. He's not been cleared yet for total contact, but he's getting back in the thick of things." Whether you like Royal or not, he takes pressure off outside WR's Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White. The Bears need a healthy Royal to be in tip top shape once the regular season opens up.
