2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
If there was ever a player whose fortunes were solely tied to that of a head coach and his system, Eddie Royal is that player. Royal was a revelation as a rookie in 2009 playing in Mike Shanahanís offense, notching 91 receptions for 980 yards and five touchdowns. Shanahan was fired following that year and Royalís production fell off a cliff. The former second round pick caught 115 passes for 1,127 yards and four touchdowns over the following three seasons and is coming off a 19-reception, 155-yard, one-touchdown campaign. Finally free of his rookie contract, Royal had a chance to rejoin Shanahan in Washington where he would have been the teamís top slot receiver but instead chose to join in San Diego where he will compete with 2011 3rd round pick Vincent Brown. Since coaches generally like their slot receivers to catch more than 38.8% of their targets (Royalís receptions to targets ratio last season), look for Brown to win that battle. I said it last year and Iíll say it again this year. Donít go thinking Royal is ready to recreate his rookie magic because it ainít gonna happen.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Martellus Bennett, Royal, Carey out for Thursday     -- Wed Nov 25 2:30 pm --

Bears TE battling rib injury
Bears rule TE Martellus Bennett, WR Eddie Royal and RB Ka'Deem Carey out for Thursday night's game at #Packers (Brad Biggs on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Bennett has been battling a rib issue and was limited in Tuesday's practice. His absence means Zach Miller will get the start and will be a TE2 consideration against a Packers defense giving up the 8th-most fantasy points to tight ends.
Injury Jeffery, Forte inactive for Bears     -- Sun Nov 22 11:30 am --

Out for Week 11
Bears without Matt Forte, Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal and Antrel Rolle today. (Brad Biggs on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: We knew Jeffery (shoulder, groin) was a long shot to play. Forte took the field, doing warmup drills but will sit another week. Jeremy Langford is locked in as the starter.
Injury Alshon Jeffery tweaks groin in practice     -- Thu Nov 12 1:30 pm --

Missed practice Thursday

FF Today's Take: Jeffery did not practice Thursday. We'll have to wait and see if he's able to practice Friday before we know his availability for Sunday. Eddie Royal (knee) missed practice Thursday as well.
