Andre Roberson has worked on his shooting mechanics this summer.
The Thunder did add Victor Oladipo, but he's not the only player who will fill the offensive void left by the departures of Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka and Dion Waiters. Roberson had a tiny 9.3 usage rate last season, so there's a chance he gets into the low teens this year. Plus, he should be able to improve on his 22.2 minutes per game. All that said, there's just not enough upside to draft him in most leagues. Sep 26 - 2:28 PM

Andre Roberson said he's looking forward to his new role in 2016-17.

Roberson is in line to start after the departure of Kevin Durant, and expects a fun 2016-17 season for the Thunder. "With our offense, the way we want to run it, it doesn't really matter what position you're in," Roberson said. "We all kinda work together, jell together and have the offense cutting, moving and just sharing the ball more. It's definitely going to be a fun year and more ball-oriented stuff, so it should be fun." Roberson will see a bigger role in the Thunder offense this season, but he's still no more than a late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues.

Andre Roberson made 2-of-11 from the field for four points on Monday with 11 rebounds, one block and no turnovers in 38 minutes.

He has been very efficient all series up until this one. Roberson's 3-pointers weren't really close and he missed a couple easy twos. His defense was one of the big stories of the postseason, especially in this series against the league's best offense. He's solidified himself as a rotation player.
May 30 - 11:35 PM

Andre Roberson fouled out in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with six points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

He's coming off the best career of his game because the Warriors left him alone in most offensive sets on Tuesday. However, it was a little different this time with his teammates missing him on some open looks. Roberson's minutes should be safe, but the Thunder may not go small as much now that the Warriors made an adjustment to go bigger. Still, Roberson's DFS owners have to be satisfied with this and can dial him up again in Game 6.

Billy Donovan praised Andre Roberson's play following Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

"It's funny," Donovan said. "After Game 2 people are saying to me: ‘Is this guy going to even play anymore?' Andre's a good basketball player and I think sometimes the things that go missing with him is he makes winning plays." Roberson, typically viewed as a defensive specialist, has suddenly emerged as an offensive option for the Thunder posting averages of 15.0 points, 9.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.0 triples, 3.0 steals and 1.0 block on 57.1 percent shooting over his past two outings. The Dubs have been completely ignoring him on defense, and Roberson has made them pay.

Andre Roberson scored 17 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, five steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

The Warriors hacked him several times and he hit just 2-of-8 free throws, but this was arguably the best game of his career. The points were a career high and he shot 7-of-12 from the field, and you have to love the minutes. This big game obviously puts him firmly on the DFS radar due to his low price, though he was averaging just 4.4 points in the postseason prior to Tuesday.
May 25 - 12:05 AM

Andre Roberson started again on Sunday and had 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with three 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes.

Roberson is 8-of-13 from downtown in his past four games and the Warriors have dared him to beat them from the arc -- tonight Andrew Bogut began as his primary defender, and when Draymond Green has him he frequently roams to the opposite side of the court. Roberson did a good job cutting hard and moving without the ball, rewarding Billy Donovan's decision to keep him in the starting lineup. He'll be on Golden State's radar in Game 4.
May 22 - 11:00 PM

Andre Roberson made all three shots from the field for seven points against the Warriors on Monday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

To open the game, the Warriors had Draymond Green "covering" Roberson, but Green was really just playing safety to really focus on weak-side help. After a bad first half, Roberson started out strong in the second half. There's a decent chance this is his best scoring output in this series with his tidy efficiency, so he's not really a viable DFS punt.
May 17 - 12:12 AM

Andre Roberson scored 14 points vs. the Spurs in Game 6, adding seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He scored a total of four points in the first five games of the series, so this performance came out of nowhere. The Warriors will likely sag off him in the next round, so he could give the Thunder a big lift if he can keep knocking down his 3-pointers. He was an unlikely hero in Game 6, but you should continue to ignore him in fantasy.
May 12 - 11:18 PM

Billy Donovan hinted that he may replace Andre Roberson in the Thunder's starting lineup for Game 2 vs. the Spurs.

"Sometimes I think you look at those numbers—and I've seen the analytics, I know them—there's times where you go against specific teams and you look at different teams and it's maybe not that great," he said. It's not currently clear who could take Roberson's role if he's sent to the bench, but Randy Foye, Dion Waiters and Anthony Morrow are the candidates.

Andre Roberson scored six points vs. the Kings on Saturday, adding four boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 22 minutes.

He was rested on Wednesday along with some other starters, but it's not clear if he will play in both games of the Thunder's upcoming back-to-back set against the Lakers on Monday and the Spurs on Tuesday. Regardless, Roberson isn't worth using in most fantasy formats.
Apr 10 - 1:34 AM

Andre Roberson is expected to play on Saturday against the Kings.

The Thunder bringing their guys back makes it harder to use guys like Enes Kanter and Dion Waiters. Roberson doesn't have much value.
Apr 9 - 2:20 PM

Andre Roberson will be rested for Wednesday's game vs. the Trail Blazers.

Dion Waiters and Randy Foye will be busier in Roberson's absence, though neither guy is particularly appealing as a plug-and-play option. Expect Roberson to resume his normal role vs. the Kings on Saturday.
Apr 6 - 8:45 PM

Andre Roberson (ankle) scored six points with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

He is not a part of the offense and doesn't add much to the stat sheet. Roberson is better in reality than in fantasy and can remain in the wire in most leagues.
Mar 12 - 11:55 PM

Andre Roberson (ankle) will start against the Spurs on Saturday night.

He rolled his ankle and did not play in the second half on Friday. Roberson should get minutes and might even defend Kawhi Leonard, but he's not a fantasy option. Randy Foye will come off the bench.
