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.

Report: Andre Roberts agrees to deal with Redskins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Free agent receiver Andre Roberts agreed to a contract with the Redskins, reports the Washington Post. The deal can't be made official until 4 p.m. ET.

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
(12/22/2013) A few Cardinals made small offensive contributions Week 16. Andre Roberts was limited to only two catches for 25 yards while Brittan Golden caught a 63-yard pass from Carson Palmer in the opening drive of the game for his only catch.

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.

Cardinals get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) The Cardinals got several minor offensive contributions in their Week 15 win at Tennessee. Running back Stepfan Taylor carried three times for 6 yards, receiver Brittan Golden caught a 16-yard pass, wideout Andre Roberts caught two passes for 15 yards and tight end Jim Dray had a 9-yard reception.


Cardinals backup pass catchers do little Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Cardinals TE Jim Dray, WR Jaron Brown, RB Stepfan Taylor and WR Andre Roberts did little Week 14 against the Rams.

Dray played the biggest impact, catching three passes for 32 yards. He had a touchdown overturned after he did not break the plane. Dray also fumbled on the play, and the Rams were awarded the ball, so it was the worst possible outcome. Brown caught one pass for 32 yards. Taylor caught three balls, but had just 16 yards. He also had two rushes for 9 yards. Roberts caught one ball for 8 yards. They'll take on the Titans Week 15.


Andre Roberts has 29 receiving yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts caught four passes for 29 yards in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Eagles. Roberts was targeted eight times. 

This was the second time Roberts has been held to fewer than 30 yards over the last four games. The eight targets, however, were the second-most of the season. 

Roberts, who has 349 yards and a touchdown this year, faces the Rams in Week 14. 


Cardinals backup pass catchers do little against Colts


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Cardinals WR Andre Roberts, WR Jaron Brown, RB Alfonso Smith and RB Stepfan Taylor did little Week 12 against the Colts.

Roberts turned in the best game, picking up 43 yards on three receptions. Brown caught just one pass for 16 yards. Smith and Taylor each had one catch. Smith gained 6 yards, while Taylor gained just 1 yard.

They'll take on the Eagles Week 13. 


Andre Roberts held to less than 20 yards again


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts finished with three catches for 14 yards Week 11 at Jacksonville. He was targeted four times in the 27-14 win.

Roberts has been held to less than 20 receiving yards in six of 10 games this season. The Cardinals are back in action Week 12 vs. Indianapolis.


Andre Roberts active Week 11 at Jacksonville


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts was cleared to play Week 11 at Jacksonville after being listed as probable with a knee injury. Roberts practiced in full Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday.

Two Cardinals probable Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Cardinals WR Andre Roberts and DE Frostee Rucker are probable Week 11 against the Jaguars.

Roberts is dealing with a knee injury. Rucker has a calf issue. Both were able to fully participate in practice Friday.


Andre Roberts limited by knee injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2013) Coming off his best game since Week 1, Cardinals receiver Andre Roberts was limited in Wednesday's practice by a knee injury. Roberts caught five passes for 72 yards and a touchdown last week vs. Houston, and he could be in for another big game if receiver Michael Floyd (shoulder) can't play Sunday at Jacksonville.


Andre Roberts' value hinges on health of injured receiver


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2013) Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts put an end to his prolonged scoring slump last week, recording a receiving touchdown for the first time in 17 games during a 27-24 win vs. Houston. Roberts now looks to score in consecutive games Week 11 at Jacksonville for just the third time in his career.

Wide receivers have had moderate success against Jacksonville. Through nine games against the Jaguars, wide receivers are averaging 140.4 receiving yards and 20.7 Fantasy points per week. Wide receivers have totaled 10 touchdowns, but none in the last two games against Jacksonville.

Roberts' Fantasy value for Week 11 hinges on the availability of wide receiver Michael Floyd, who is nursing a shoulder injury he suffered Week 10. His absence last week allowed Roberts to have one of his best games of the season.

If Floyd is out Sunday, then Roberts could emerge as a Week 11 sleeper in deep leagues. If Floyd plays, then it's best to look to other options other than Roberts.


Andre Roberts emerges as top target Week 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts led the way for the team Week 10 against the Texans.

Roberts received a team-high eight targets, hauling in five balls for 72 yards. He also scored in the fourth quarter, to extend the team's lead. He did a fair amount of damage in the second half, with six of his targets coming after halftime. Michael Floyd had to leave the game due to an injury, which may have opened the door for Roberts to have a nice game.

Roberts will take on the Jaguars Week 11.


Cardinals pass catchers don't do much against Falcons


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) The Cardinals pass catchers not named Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd failed to distinguish themselves Week 8 against the Falcons.

Tight end Rob Housler caught just one ball for 14 yards during the game. Cornerback/wide receiver Patrick Peterson did the same, catching on pass for 13 yards. Andre Roberts received two targets, but caught one ball for 8 yards. 

The Cardinals are on a bye Week 9, but return against the Texans Week 10.
