Redskins WR Andre Roberts sees increase in targets in 2014
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/14) 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."
"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 is leaving the Cardinals for the Redskins after signing in Washington on a four-year deal worth $16 million. Roberts was expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Pierre Garcon, but he will be No. 3 now behind Garcon and DeSean Jackson. He had a quiet year in 2013 with 43 catches for 471 yards and two touchdowns, but he did have a decent season in 2012 with 64 catches for 759 yards and five touchdowns. That’s probably his ceiling, and he’s a low-end Fantasy option coming into the year. Don’t draft him in the majority of leagues, but if he starts off the season playing well then add him off the waiver wire.
