Roberts watches Floyd steal show: Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts finished with only three catches for 18 yards during Arizona's 27-13 loss to San Francisco in Week 17. Roberts was coming off an outing against Chicago in which he was targeted 12 times -- the second-highest total of the year -- but generated half that amount Sunday (six). Instead, the Cardinals and new quarterback Brian Hoyer relied on rookie Michael Floyd, who posted eight receptions for 166 yards. Roberts did manage higher totals than Larry Fitzgerald (two catches for 13 yards). (Updated 12/30/12)

Roberts' effectiveness plummeted after the first half of the season as he was limited by an ankle injury that forced him to miss a game. He eclipsed 50 receiving yards only once over his past six outings while also failing to reach the end zone after Week 7. It's still early to think about next season, but Floyd may have surpassed Roberts as the leading option opposite Fitzgerald heading into 2013. Fantasy owners should consider Roberts a late-round option only in deeper formats for next year only if he retains his spot in the starting lineup. (Updated 12/30/12).

Arizona added Carson Palmer to the mix in 2013, which has many benefits for Fantasy owners. Our Jamey Eisenberg takes a closer look at the new-look Cardinals for Draft Day.
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)
