A lack of quality output from the group of potential returners make the situation in San Diego one that could change at any time. Eddie Royal currently has the lead on the punt return duties.


Eddie Royal is a quick receiver with good hands and open-field running ability that make him ideally suited to operate out of the slot. While he has some big-play ability and has proven that he can score touchdowns in bunches over short stretches, he is likely to remain hit-or-miss from week to week, and is therefore an unreliable fantasy option. Keenan Allen will get most of the looks from the wide receiver position in an offense that also features the tight ends and running backs heavily in the passing game. As a result, Royal will not be targeted consistently enough to merit consideration as a fantasy starter. Realistically, his best case scenario this season would be a repeat of last season, when he was a worthwhile (but rarely stellar) flex option. Because he lacks fantasy upside, he should merit consideration only in the latest rounds of most fantasy drafts. (May 28)
