Andre Roberson scored nine points with eight rebounds, three assists, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.
He's playing some solid basketball and is easily being overshadowed by his point guard. Roberson is on his best five-game run of the year, averaging 9.2 points, 4.8 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.6 blocks, 1.2 steals and 1.4 treys. He's an option in deeper leagues and always makes sense as a DFS tourney punt next to Russell Westbrook. Dec 10 - 12:06 AM

Andre Roberson had a great all-around game on Sunday with 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting, one 3-pointer, five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 37 minutes.

Roberson defends the opposition's best swingman on a nightly basis, while his offensive game is basically limited to fastbreaks, cuts, and corner 3-pointers. He rarely draws much fantasy attention due to low offensive numbers, but he's quietly posting late-round 9-cat value on the strength of 1.3 steals, 1.1 blocks, 0.9 three-pointers and just 0.6 turnovers per game. Thanks in part to his efforts, the Thunder have now won a season-high five games in a row.
Dec 4 - 9:46 PM

Andre Roberson scored 10 points with five rebounds, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He did suffer a minor injury earlier in the game, but he returned and looked fine. There's no word of any additional evaluation or any injury update, so he's good to go. Roberson is only a low-end hold in deeper leagues due to a low upside.
Dec 1 - 12:37 AM

Andre Roberson tied his career-high with four blocks on Sunday, adding 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting, two 3-pointers, three rebounds and one steal.

Roberson even mimicked Serge Ibaka's 'two thumbs down' motion after one of his four swats. He's entrenched in the starting SF job and is finding ways to carve out a fantasy niche. Through nine games he was one of six players averaging at least 1.4 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 threes -- the other players are Danny Green, Robert Covington, Aaron Gordon, Draymond Green, Rudy Gay and Kevin Durant.
Nov 13 - 9:51 PM

Andre Roberson played 18 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with two points, three rebounds and two turnovers.

He suddenly has competition for minutes with Jerami Grant playing almost all small forward now. Roberson won't be playing at the two as much as last year because Victor Oladipo is holding that spot. Roberson's value was low to begin with, but it has dropped even more. He won't be this bad, though.
Nov 4 - 1:22 AM

Andre Roberson and the Thunder did not reach an agreement on a contract extension.

The Thunder discussed an extension with Andre Roberson but didn't reach a deal. He'll be a restricted free agent next summer. If they want to keep him in OKC, the Thunder will have the ability to match any offer he receives in July.
Nov 1 - 9:49 AM

Andre Roberson scored nine points with 11 rebounds, five steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

This is pretty much the best Roberson's owners will get out of him. He's a decent rebounder and he'll turn in some steals, but don't expect him to score this many points. He's only a deep-league guy.
Oct 29 - 12:13 AM

Andre Roberson scored one point with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and no turnovers in 32 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

The offseason puff pieces about Roberson's improved offense were nice, but it's all about the defense for the starting small forward. He won't get enough shots to matter in DFS while the Thunder are healthy.
Oct 27 - 12:54 AM

Andre Roberson (sore left knee) logged 27 minutes on Sunday, posting four rebounds, three steals, two turnovers, and just one point on 0-of-5 FGs and 1-of-2 FTs.

Roberson sat out the previous two exhibitions but his injury was never serious. He had a ridiculously low usage rate of 9.2 percent last year and should see more opportunities with Kevin Durant out of town, but he's little more than a defensive specialist with deep-league appeal.
Oct 16 - 9:39 PM

Andre Roberson (left knee soreness) is available for Sunday's game vs. the Wolves.

He's missed the last two preseason games as a precaution, but returned to full practice on Saturday. Roberson is a candidate to start at small forward this season and could hold some low-end value in deeper leagues after a promising showing in the playoffs last season. His upside is pretty low, though.
Oct 16 - 1:37 PM

Andre Roberson (left knee soreness) practiced in full on Saturday.

Roberson has missed the last two preseason games due to the issue, but Billy Donovan had previously said that the absence was precautionary. We're not worried about Roberson's health, but he's not someone we're targeting in any fantasy format, either.
Oct 15 - 3:20 PM

Andre Roberson (left knee soreness) will sit out Thursday's preseason game vs. the Grizzlies.

This will be Roberson's second straight game on the sidelines, but Billy Donovan maintains that his absence is largely precautionary. Alex Abrines and Anthony Morrow could earn some extended run tonight sans Roberson.
Oct 13 - 6:39 PM

Andre Roberson (knee soreness) won't play against the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Thunder head coach Billy Donovan said the move was just precautionary, so it doesn't sound like anything that should linger into the regular season. Roberson will get a chance to play a bigger role for the Thunder this season, but he still doesn't have much fantasy value outside of deeper leagues.
Oct 11 - 1:12 PM

Andre Roberson said he's not thinking ahead to his upcoming free agency.

Roberson is set to become a free agent after the 2016-17 season, but is keeping his mind focused on the season at hand. "At this moment, I’m not much into that," Roberson said. "I just leave that to my agents. I’m going to play my game and live one day at a time. Priority is focusing on the team and do what I do. I’m not really worried about that aspect. If I go out there and play my game, everything is going to take care of itself." Roberson will see an increase in minutes after the departure of Kevin Durant, but his low usage rate relegates him to more of a deep-league fantasy asset.

Oct 6 - 8:53 AM

Andre Roberson scored six points as the starting small forward on Monday, adding two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover in 21 minutes.

There is some talk of Roberson improving his shooting and possibly taking a few more shots in the offense. That's not really saying much, though. In his minutes with Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant last year, Roberson couldn't even crack a 10.0 usage rate. His minutes should be there, but the tiny per-minute output just isn't enough to draft him in most leagues.
