News: Royal caught four passes for 42 yards and two scores in Sunday's win at Buffalo. Impact: Though Sunday was certainly a nice performance, it's difficult for owners to start Royal - there are just too many mouths for Philip Rivers to feed in San Diego right now.(STATS, 4:08pm)

News: Royal had four catches on six targets for 42 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Bills. Impact: After a dreadful one-catch, 20-yard performance in Week 1, Royal has been targeted 16 times in the last two games. He's getting more looks than Malcom Floyd, though the latter finished with 98 yards Sunday. Keenan Allen struggled Sunday, but still has more fantasy upside than Royal, who gets most of his looks on short passes and rarely in the red zone, aside from Sunday's output. Before prospective owners get too excited, they should remember that Royal had five touchdowns in the first two weeks of the 2013 season, before going on to be relatively unimportant to fantasy owners the rest of the way.(RotoWire, )

News: Royal pulled down 7-of-10 targets for 69 yards in Sunday's 30-21 win over Seattle. Impact: Royal rebounded from a terrible game in Week 1, getting targeted the most of any pass catcher on San Diego. He made a number of tough grabs, and the Chargers seemed intent on throwing him short passes to let him work in open space. Keenan Allen and Antonio Gates, who caught three touchdowns Sunday, are still ahead of Royal in the receiving pecking order, however.(RotoWire, )

News: Royal had one catch on six targets for 20 yards in the Chargers' loss at Arizona on Monday night. Impact: Royal had a disappointing game which included at least one blatant drop which would have resulted in a key first down. On the bright side, his six targets tied Malcolm Floyd for second amongst wide receivers (behind Keenan Allen), so he at least appears to be right in the mix for touches going forward.(RotoWire, )
