Broncos WR Eric Decker has been the star of training camp so far.  "You could see as [last] season went on he got a lot of production, and now he has just taken off," HC John Fox said.  "I'm expecting big things from him."  As a rookie last year, Decker went catch-less through the first 10 games.  He hauled in 6 balls for 106 yards and a score in the final 6.  He reportedly spent extra time this offseason working with QB Kyle Orton, and it seems to be paying off.  Decker has been lining up both in the slot and on the outside in camp.  We like him to eventually pass WR Eddie Royal in the pecking order this season.  For more on Decker, check out our Sleepers article.

WR Eric Decker has been running with the 1st team as Z receiver for the past week while Eddie Royal sits out. Royal is out with soreness in the hip that didn't require off-season surgery. He's expected back this week -- before the 2nd exhibition game. Still, extra time with the starters can only help Decker's case for playing time. The hip, of course, is a worrisome spot for Royal in light of last year's injury. That led to problems with his groin and thigh. Neither is tremendously appealing in fantasy right now, but Decker seems the more-attractive late-round shot.

Broncos WR Eddie Royal is working as Denver's #2 WR early in training camp.  With the departure of WR Jabar Gaffney, Royal and Eric Decker are left to vie for the starting job opposite Brandon Lloyd.  Royal has the early edge based on experience, but Decker' size and skill-set makes him a better fit on the outside.  Neither guy offers much fantasy upside though.  This Broncos passing game won't be able to sustain much production at the WR position outside of Lloyd.

Broncos WR Eddie Royal declared himself 100% recovered from this past February's hip surgery.  He's a bit ahead of the expected 6-month rehab period.  Royal was recently able to run routes for QB Brady Quinn and came away feeling good.  “I’m ready to go,” he said.  “I will not miss a day of practice."  Royal is expected to once again serve as Denver's #3 WR this season.  That doesn't give him much upside on an offense that figures to be extremely run-heavy.

Broncos WR Eddie Royal is working out with his teammates this week.  He underwent hip surgery back in February but appears to be on track to be ready for training camp.  Royal will likely return as Denver's #3 WR behind Brandon Lloyd and Jabar Gaffney.

Broncos beat writer Vic Lombardi reports that WR Eddie Royal recently underwent hip surgery.  The recovery time is estimated to be 6 months.  He'll miss all of OTAs (if there are any), and may not be ready for the start of training camp.  Look for Royal to get off to a slow start in 2011.

7:44pm EST 11/22/10

Broncos WR Eddie Royal (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Chargers.  He was able to practice on Saturday and should be close to 100%.

Broncos WR Eddie Royal missed Friday's practice with a hamstring injury.  He was able to get back on the field on Saturday but is a game-time decision for Monday night's tilt with the Chargers.  Don't bother with Royal this week.

11:54am EDT 10/31/10

Broncos WR Eddie Royal (groin) is active for today's game against the 49ers.  It's unclear if he's at 100% though, so Royal is a weak fantasy play.

Broncos WR Eddie Royal (groin) returned to a full practice on Friday and is listed as probable for Week 8.  It looks like he's just about back to 100%, but he's only worth WR3 consideration in PPR leagues for this week's game against the 49ers.

After missing Wednesday's workout, Broncos WR Eddie Royal (groin) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.  He should play against the Niners on Sunday, but he's a weak fantasy play at less than 100%.

Broncos WR Eddie Royal (groin) was held out of Wednesday's practice.  Royal suited up last week but was clearly limited.  Unless he's able to put in a full practice by Friday, he won't be a fantasy option this week.

3:24pm EDT 10/24/10

Broncos WR Eddie Royal (groin) is active for today's game against the Raiders.  He'll be playing at far less than 100% though, so he's better off on your bench this week.

After missing Wednesday and Thursday's workouts, Broncos WR Eddie Royal (groin) returned to a "light" practice on Friday.  He's a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders.

Broncos WR Eddie Royal (groin) missed practice again on Thursday.  It's looking like he'll miss Sunday's game against the Raiders.  Rookie WR Demaryius Thomas will pick up Royal's snaps.

Broncos WR Eddie Royal (groin) missed practice on Wednesday.  The team hasn't released any details on the severity of the injury, but we do know that Royal never returned to last week's game after getting hurt.  His status for Week 7 is unknown.

Broncos WR Eddie Royal left Sunday's game against the Jets with an apparent groin injury.  It didn't look serious, but we'll update his status as soon as we learn more.

8:52pm EDT 9/17/10

After being limited in practice this week, Broncos WR Eddie Royal (thigh) is listed as probable for the team's Week 2 game against the Seahawks.  He's a decent WR3 in PPR formats.

After missing practice on Wednesday, Broncos WR Eddie Royal (thigh) was limited on Thursday.  It's a step in the right direction, but let's see what he does on Friday.

Broncos WR Eddie Royal missed Wednesday's practice with a thigh injury he suffered in the season opener.  Beat writer Lindsay Jones points out that Royal had the thigh "heavily wrapped" in the 2nd half of that game.  His status for Week 2 is unknown.
