Andre Roberts' signing not huge for Fantasy Football
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer (3/11/14) 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.

02/20/2014 03:54 Arizona Cardinals 2014 offseason preview
With the 2013 season officially in the books the Eye on Football staff is looking ahead to the 2014 offseason for all 32 NFL teams. Next up: The Arizona Cardinals.
Andre Roberts did what a lot of receivers do in their third year – he had a breakout campaign. Roberts stepped up in 2012 to have a career season with 64 catches for 759 yards and five touchdowns, which were all career highs. He had 114 targets and finished as the No. 38 Fantasy receiver in standard leagues. Roberts will likely slide from No. 2 to No. 3 on the depth chart behind Larry Fitzgerald and now Michael Floyd, but Roberts still has the chance to make plays. He’s worth drafting as a late-round flier in deeper leagues, and maybe his third year is the start of something big. (Updated 4/26/13)
