Date:

Andre Roberts had one catch for 14 yards in Week 16 against the Eagles.

It was a rough night for Roberts, who also lost a fumble on the opening kickoff of the second half. Roberts can continue to be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Dec 20 - 9:55 PM

Andre Roberts caught two passes for 81 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Giants.

Roberts got all of his yardage on a 61-yard catch in the third quarter. He was targeted four times. Roberts can continue to be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Dec 14 - 5:26 PM

Andre Roberts caught 2-of-4 targets for 18 yards in Washington's Week 7 win over the Titans.

Roberts now has 22 catches for 237 yards and two scores. The Redskins' entire passing attack should get a boost from the impending return of Robert Griffin III (ankle).
Oct 19 - 7:04 PM

Andre Roberts caught 5-of-9 targets for 55 yards in the Redskins' Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.

Facing his ex-teammates in a "revenge game," Roberts promptly dropped a well-thrown first-quarter pass from Kirk Cousins. Roberts has been a bit more productive than expected in D.C., but ultimately is just a fantasy WR4/5.
Oct 12 - 8:54 PM

Andre Roberts caught five passes for 29 yards and one touchdown in the Redskins' Week 5 loss to the Seahawks.

Roberts was targeted nine times, finishing second on the team behind DeSean Jackson. He was Kirk Cousins' go-to guy in the short passing game when the Redskins needed a first down. Roberts has a touchdown in back-to-back games, but he's not going to see enough volume on a weekly basis. Roberts shouldn't be owned in 12- and 14-team leagues, especially with Jordan Reed nearing a return.
Oct 7 - 12:40 AM

Andre Roberts caught 1-of-4 targets for 18 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Giants.

The score was Roberts' first in Washington. Roberts is a distant No. 3 on the depth chart behind Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, but could see some extra run in Week 5 if neither Niles Paul (concussion) nor Jordan Reed (hamstring) can suit up.
Sep 26 - 12:43 AM

Andre Roberts caught four passes for 38 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Philadelphia.

With DeSean Jackson (shoulder) healthy, Roberts played the No. 3 wideout role once again. He's not going to see enough volume there to be on the fantasy radar.
Sep 21 - 5:51 PM

Andre Roberts caught four passes for 57 yards and ran one time for 19 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Jaguars.

Roberts' role expanded significantly in this one as DeSean Jackson sprained a shoulder early on and was done for the day. Roberts then played in all formations, lining up in the slot in three-wide sets when Ryan Grant came on. However, the ex-Cardinal only ended up with five targets compared to 11 for Niles Paul and eight for Grant. Even if D-Jax missed time, Roberts will be a WR4 type.
Sep 14 - 4:52 PM

Andre Roberts caught one pass for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 1 loss at Houston.

As expected, Roberts was the No. 3 wideout and saw just three targets -- even though Jordan Reed (hamstring) left early on. Pierre Garcon (12 targets) and DeSean Jackson (nine targets) gobbled up all the volume.
Sep 7 - 5:22 PM

Andre Roberts had one catch for six yards in Washington's third preseason game.

Roberts worked exclusively with the first-team offense, ahead of Ryan Grant and Santana Moss. He's locked in as Washington's No. 3 receiver, and is also expected to be their primary punt returner. Roberts isn't on the fantasy radar.
Aug 23 - 11:10 PM

Redskins WR Andre Roberts is working as the returner with both the kick and punt units.

Roberts signed on with the Redskins to be their No. 2 receiver, but he suffered a quick demotion when Washington brought in DeSean Jackson a month later. The silver lining is the reduced offensive role opens up Roberts to help on special teams. Roberts has not been particularly successful as a returner, though, averaging a measly 6.9 yards per punt return and 22.4 yards per kick return. Washington would do well to find a better option.
Jun 15 - 8:19 PM

The Redskins are considering using Andre Roberts on kick returns.

It's not an ideal role for Roberts, who averaged a measly 22.4 yards on kick returns in his first two seasons with the Cardinals. Roberts dropped from the Redskins' No. 2 to No. 3 receiver when Washington signed DeSean Jackson, so the team may now be willing to use him more on special teams. Chris Thompson, Richard Crawford, and Niles Paul are also candidates to contribute in the return game.

Apr 19 - 4:07 PM

Andre Roberts expressed frustration with the Redskins' signing of DeSean Jackson.

Roberts agreed to terms with the Redskins on a four-year, $16 million deal before free agency even opened. He "envisioned being the No. 2 receiver," but now admits he doesn't "know how it's going to work out." New coach Jay Gruden is going to run a pass-happy offense, so Roberts will get his chances out of the slot. But his fantasy appeal is low. Roberts is, at best, the No. 4 option in Washington's pass game behind Pierre Garcon, Jackson, and Jordan Reed.

Redskins agreed to terms with WR Andre Roberts on a four-year, $16 million contract.

Roberts just turned 26 and played his college ball at nearby Citadel. He can play outside and in the slot. Roberts will slide in as the starter opposite Pierre Garcon, ending Santana Moss' run in Washington. The Skins will field an undersized starting wideout tandem in 2014, as Roberts is 5-foot-11 and Garcon is a tick over 6-feet. Roberts could flirt with WR3 fantasy value in D.C., though we wouldn't anticipate consistency. Garcon is a target hog.
