Man oh man, the rookie wideouts are getting it done early this year in the season. Desean Jackson put up huge numbers on sunday, and now Eddie Royal stole the show. The Bronco’s used him alot. I mean, they had plays for him that were creative and entertaining, built in to showcase his talents. He ran the ball off of WR pitches, he caught a good amount of passes and he even attempted to throw a pass. Eddie Royal was everywhere. Eddie’s performance makes it hard to believe that he is even a rookie, because he played like an all star.
Regardless, This guy is a huge fantasy asset. ESPECIALLY In leagues that count kick return yards for receivers. It seems, because of his speed, he has alot of planned looks written in the playbook. If he is available in your league, be sure you pick him up. The opportunity to sign a WR like this out of the free agency comes very seldom in fantasy Sports. Eddie Royal had the best Rookie debut performance for any Bronco ever with 9 grabs 146 yards 1 TD, 2 carrys, 9 rushing yards, and 0/1 passing for 0 yards.
