Redskins get contributions from several role players Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) The Redskins received contributions from several role players during Saturday's win over Philadelphia.

Andre Roberts lost a fumble in the third quarter and finished with only one catch for 14 yards. Tight ends Logan Paulsen and Jordan Reed combined for three catches for 11 yards. Reed came down with two receptions for 5 yards, while Paulsen caught his lone target for a gain of 6 yards. Chris Thompson caught all three passes thrown in his direction for 5 yards. Silas Redd took his lone handoff for a gain of 4 yards in the third quarter.


Redskins WR Andre Roberts totals 81 yards Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Redskins wide receiver Andre Roberts had a season-high 81 yards on two catches during a 24-13 loss Week 15 at N.Y. Giants. Roberts, who was targeted four times, got most of his yards on a 61-yard reception in the third quarter.

The Redskins are back in action Week 16 vs. Philadelphia.


Washington's backup receivers do little Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Washington's backup receivers did little Week 14 against the Rams.

Santana Moss managed to pick up some slack with DeSean Jackson out. He finished second on the team in receiving yards, picking up 43 yards on three receptions. Tight end Jordan Reed also had three catches, gaining 25 yards. Andre Roberts hauled in two balls, picking up 11 yards. Niles Paul had one catch for 7 yards. Ryan Grant also had one catch. He finished with 4 yards.

The group will look for more Week 15 against the Giants. 


Redskins get offensive contributions Week 8


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) The Redskins got a slew of offensive contributions in Monday's overtime win at Dallas. Among them, running back Roy Helu ran five times for 29 yards and caught both his targets for 14 yards. Running back Silas Redd had a 5-yard rush.

Tight end Niles Paul caught all three of his targets for 27 yards, and fullback Darrel Young had a 12-yard catch. Wideout Andre Roberts secured just one of his five targets for 11 yards. They'll all visit the Vikings in Week 9.


Redskins WR Andre Roberts sees increase in targets in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Although Redskins wide receiver Andre Roberts' role hasn't changed in his move from Arizona to Washington, as he is still a No. 3 receiver, his targets have increased. He is being targeted 5.6 times per game in 2014 after he was targeted 4.75 times per game last season with the Cardinals.

"The way I was used there is different than how I’m used here," Roberts said, per ESPN. "It’s different. It didn’t prepare me for this situation. I came into this situation with the mindset that I’ll do anything they ask me to do."

Roberts has already done a good job of building rapport with the Redskins quarterbacks.

"Andre is a total professional," Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins said. "He works very hard, he is very intelligent, he understands his role, he understands the details of route running, he knows how to get open and he doesn’t have a big weakness. He has great hands, he’s got good speed, he can beat guys over the top, he can win versus zone coverage. He is a guy you have a lot of confidence in, because you feel like he is very versatile as a receiver." 


Andre Roberts picks up Pierre Garcon's slack


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/7/2014) While Pierre Garcon was targeted only three times Week 5 against Seattle, fellow Redskins wide receiver Andre Roberts was targeted a season-high nine times, catching five passes for 29 yards and a touchdown.

Despite the lack of yardage, it's the kind of performance that stands out in a box score, especially against one of the league's best defenses.

But it's not like Roberts' role changed. He played about two-thirds of the Redskins' snaps, which was no different than usual. Most likely, the increased production was just a side effect of Richard Sherman covering Garcon. Quarterback Kirk Cousins needed somewhere else to throw the ball.

In other words, it won't be the norm for either Roberts or Garcon. Roberts is a big enough part of the Redskins' passing game to have some value in deeper points-per-reception formats, but he should remain unowned in the majority of Fantasy leagues.


Andre Roberts finds paydirt again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Redskins No. 3 receiver Andre Roberts caught five of his nine targets for 29 yards against the Seahawks, including a 6-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Roberts scored for the second straight week while setting season highs in receptions and targets.

He'll visit the Cardinals in Week 6.


Washington's backup pass catchers do little Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Washington 's backup pass catchers made a small impact Thursday against the Giants.

Logan Paulsen hauled in three balls for 28 yards during the contest. Andre Roberts caught one pass, but made it count. He the second quarter, he pulled in an 18 yard touchdown strike from Kirk Cousins.

Both players will take on the Seahawks Week 5. 


Andre Roberts hauls in four more passes


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Redskins receiver Andre Roberts played a solid role for the second game in a row, in a 37-34 loss to the Eagles in Week 3.

Roberts caught three passes for the second straight game, and racked up 38 yards this time around. He has 117 yards on nine receptions through three games, with his next game set for Thursday against the Giants in Week 4.  


Andre Roberts steps up in victory


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Redskins wide receiver Andre Roberts stepped into a bigger role following DeSean Jackson's shoulder injury in Week 2 against the Jaguars, a 41-10 win.

Roberts hauled in four of the five passes thrown his way for 57 yards, good for second on the team. He had a 31-yard reception in the game, and added 59 yards on seven punt returns.

Roberts had just one reception in the team's opener, so it remains to be seen whether he can sustain this kind of performance. Washington's next game is set for Week 3 against the Eagles.  


Redskins working on 'home-run' passing game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday the team needs to do a better job of getting the football to wide receivers Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson with more space to make plays, according to The Washington Post. On Wednesday, quarterback Robert Griffin III agreed.

"When you have weapons like Pierre and DeSean and Andre Roberts, these guys can really go deep down the field. You want to get them opportunities and we had a couple in (Week 1). We just didn’t come down with them," Griffin said. "Yeah, we have got to find ways to open those guys up more down the field. Don’t think that’s any secret. You want to be able to be efficient and hit the underneath stuff, but you also have to get those home-run shots in every now and then. We’ll work on getting that."


Andre Roberts eager to be part of return game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Redskins receiver Andre Roberts is competing to be the team's kickoff and punt returner. He told CSNWashington.com he's eager to make an impact not just as a receiver but on special teams.

“I feel like I’m one of those players who when he gets the ball in his hands he can make some big plays,” he said.

It's unlikely the Redskins will use Roberts as the primary option on both kick and punt returns. If he had to choose, he'd return kickoffs. In his career he's returned 16 kickoffs for an average of 22.4 yards.


Andre Roberts unhappy with new situation in Washington


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/11/2014) When Andre Roberts signed with the Redskins, he saw himself as the No. 2 receiver opposite Pierre Garcon. But that vision was wrecked when the Skins signed DeSean Jackson earlier this month. 

Roberts called the signing "frustrating."

"I felt great coming into [2013] and I was hoping I could better my stats and help the offense more," Roberts told ESPN. "But I wasn't able to do that. Being a competitor and a receiver who wants the ball every play -- you obviously can't get the ball every play -- but I have that mentality. Whenever there's a pass play I want the ball in my hands and I think I can do something special with it. When you don't get the opportunity, it was definitely really frustrating for me."

Roberts figures to be the third receiver for the Redskins this season, provided Jackson and Garcon stay healthy. He also assumes he'll return kickoffs and punts, which appeals to him. 


Why DeSean Jackson is a good fit for Redskins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) DeSean Jackson's skill set will mesh with the Redskins' offense and quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to ESPN.com. "Griffin's ability to throw the deep ball sits well with Jackson's penchant for catching them in the past," the report said. "It's what Jackson does best, and it's why he scares a defense so much. 

"Griffin might not have a laser arm like Michael Vick -- few do -- but it's a very good arm and it's certainly one that should connect with Jackson down the field. Oh, there's also Griffin's ability to extend plays with a group as fast as this one. That, too, should lead to headaches for opposing defensive coordinators in the week leading up to facing this offense."

Jackson joins wideouts Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts and tight end Jordan Reed to give Griffin four dangerous targets. The improved passing game also should open up running lanes for Alfred Morris.


Andre Roberts says Redskins will be pass-first team


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) The Redskins ranked third and 13th in rushing attempts the past two seasons. New receiver Andre Roberts anticipates Washington going pass-heavy in 2014 with new coach Jay Gruden and a healthier Robert Griffin III.

Roberts told ESPN.com he bases his belief on Gruden's approach as Cincinnati's offensive coordinator and on a conversation he had with former Bengals quarterback John Skelton.

“He was telling me about his style of coaching and what he likes to do and how he likes to use players,” Roberts said. “I think we’ll be passing more than running. We’ll have plenty of talent at the running back and receiver position for Robert to throw the ball around a little bit.”

Roberts described the attack as a passing offense "for the most part."


Andre Roberts won't be limited to the slot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) Coaches told new Redskins receiver Andre Roberts that he'll line up all over the field, reports the Washington Times. He said it's similar to how he was used last season in Arizona, when he caught 43 passes for 471 yards and two touchdowns.

“What most people don’t know is Larry [Fitzgerald] was our slot guy last year,” Roberts said. “I spent a lot [of time] on the outside. I did move into the inside when we went to four-receiver sets, but for the most part, I played a lot of outside. But they had us moving around a lot in that offense. That was one of [coach] Bruce Arians‘ things — he didn’t want anyone to be keyed on. Larry played a lot in the slot to create that different mindset.”


Robert Griffin III to work with receivers next week


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and his receiving targets will gather in Arizona next week to "knock off some rust and get a jump on offseason workouts," reports the Washington Post. The receivers scheduled to attend include Pierre Garcon, Aldrick Robinson, Santana Moss, new additions Andre Roberts and David Gettis, tight end Jordan Reed and running backs Alfred Morris, Evan Royster and Chris Thompson.

Andre Roberts willing and eager to be returner


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) The Redskins tied for last in kickoff return average (20.0) and ranked 28th in punt return average (6.4) last season. New Redskins receiver Andre Roberts said he's willing and eager to fill those roles, reports CSNWashington.com.

“I may be doing that, you never know,” Roberts said on 106.7 The Fan. “I don’t have a problem doing that at all. If they ask me to do it, I’ll definitely do it.”

Roberts was the Cardinals' primary punt returner and a secondary kickoff returner as a rookie in 2010.


Andre Roberts' signing not huge for Fantasy Football


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/11/2014) Assuming the bevy of media reports are accurate, Andre Roberts will play with the Redskins in 2014 and beyond. While it's a nice upgrade for them, it probably won't end up being the start of something huge. 

Roberts averaged right around 11.5 yards per catch over the last three years with Arizona, where he bounced between No. 2 and No. 3 receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald. He'll not only be in the same spot with the Skins behind Pierre Garcon but tight end Jordan Reed will also draw plenty of targets from Robert Griffin III. Roberts is sure to see a lot of single coverage and probably a lot of passing-down targets, albeit not necessarily a ton in the red zone.

Expect Roberts to be a waiver-wire receiver during the season and not someone worth even a late-round pick in a typical Fantasy league.  


Andre Roberts gets $16 million from Redskins


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/11/2014) The deal receiver Andre Roberts will sign with the Redskins is for four years at around $16 million, with half of that guaranteed, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Roberts, who spent his first four seasons with the Cardinals, gives Robert Griffin III another quick target behind Pierre Garcon and tight end Jordan Reed.


Andre Roberts should have a few suitors


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/11/2014) Cardinals receiver Andre Roberts, an impending free agent, is expected to draw interest from the Redskins and Browns, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Roberts, 26, has 182 catches and 11 touchdowns in four NFL seasons. He could also draw interest from the Buccaneers.


Andre Roberts would be nice fit with Buccaneers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) Cardinals receiver Andre Roberts, an impending free agent, would fill a glaring need on the Buccaneers, reports the Tampa Tribune. Roberts, 26, has 182 catches and 11 touchdowns in four NFL seasons, and he'd "give the Bucs a solid No. 3 receiver," the report said.

From his time in Arizona, Bucs general manager Jason Licht knows Roberts well. The Cardinals aren't expected to make a big push to retain him.


Andre Roberts ends season on high note


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts capped his season off on a high note as he scored his second touchdown of the season during Sunday’s finale against the 49ers at home in Week 17.

Roberts hauled in a 34-yard touchdown reception with 3:28 remaining in the fourth quarter. He finished the game with three catches on six targets for 74 yards and one touchdown in a 23-20 defeat. He finished the year with 43 grabs for 471 yards and two touchdowns.

Cardinals receive minor offensive contributions


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jim Dray led all tight ends in receptions with three for 16 yards. Jake Ballard caught one of three targets for 17 yards. Rob Housler was targeted twice but held without a grab in a 17-10 victory.
