Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts will enter training camp as the slot receiver as well as the primary backup to both wide receiver spots.
Fantasy Tip: Roberts should see a good amount of playing time if he is able to keep his slot job during the season. He is coming off a season with 453 yards and two touchdowns last season. Roberts may be a late-round option in deeper leagues but likely will be available on the waiver wire during the season.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon ran routes as the "Z" receiver instead of the "X" receiver Wednesday, June 3. This means Garcon lines up split out on the right instead of the left. WR DeSean Jackson was the "X" receiver, and WRs Andre Roberts and Jamison Crowder rotated as the slot receiver.
Fantasy Tip: D-Jax is a midrange WR2 in fantasy, but he loses some appeal in PPR leagues. He came back to his normal 56-catch range after busting out with 82 receptions in 2013. Garcon should be more involved this season, but it's hard to take him as anything more than a low-end WR3 in PPR formats.
Wed, 06 May 2015 08:41:01 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will compete for WR Andre Roberts' roles as slot receiver and punt returner in training camp. General manager Scot McCloughan said Crowder is an excellent route runner.
Fantasy Tip: Crowder is just 5-foot-8 and 185 pounds, so his size will always be a question. Roberts is coming off a 36-453-2 season, and Crowder could very well win the spot. If so, Crowder may be worth a look in the final rounds of drafts.

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts may be more involved in the offense as opportunities arise, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Fantasy Tip: Roberts probably has more value in PPR leagues and could become a nice, cheap option on FantasyScore if his snaps do increase.
Wed, 06 Aug 2014 07:41:47 -0700
Updating earlier reports, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (ankle) could play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 7, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely he will play for precautionary reasons, but his high-end WR2 outlook remains unchanged. If he were to miss any real time, Andre Roberts would likely slot in as the second receiver and Santana Moss or Aldrick Robinson could land in the slot. Roberts is a WR4, with Moss and Robinson on the fringe of WR5 status.
Fri, 25 Jul 2014 07:51:12 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and WR Andre Roberts are displaying good chemistry in practice Friday, July 25.
Fantasy Tip: Roberts is a WR5 with upside. Griffin is a weak QB1 or a solid QB2.
Thu, 17 Jul 2014 19:46:37 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts has admitted since the signing of WR DeSean Jackson that he might have opted to go elsewhere had he known Jackson would be signed. However, Roberts might be one of the biggest beneficiaries of having WRs Pierre Garcon and Jackson, as well as TE Jordan Reed, in the offense.
Fantasy Tip: Roberts might be undrafted in most fantasy formats, but he could be an early-season waiver wire gem if he gets off to a good start and the Washington offense clicks out of the gate.
Tue, 01 Jul 2014 13:02:02 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts has come to terms with being No. 3 on the depth chart. Roberts said he may have gone in a different direction during free agency if he knew WR DeSean Jackson was going to sign, but plans to make the best of the situation.
Sat, 14 Jun 2014 23:32:56 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts wants to serve as a return man for both punts and kickoffs. "I feel like I'm one of those players who when he gets the ball in his hands he can make some big plays," said Roberts. "That's what I want to bring to this team as well, not just as a receiver but also on special teams."
Sat, 19 Apr 2014 08:18:38 -0700
The Washington Redskins may consider using WR Andre Roberts as a kick and punt returner this upcoming season, but he did not have great numbers when handled the role with the Arizona Cardinals.
Fri, 11 Apr 2014 16:15:27 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts said he believed he would be the No. 2 receiver in 2014 but that was before the team added WR DeSean Jackson. Roberts said he does not know what his role will be this upcoming season. "That's how the league is, that's how the league works," Roberts said. "Going into my situation, I wanted to be the No. 2 receiver. But I still don't how it's going to work out. Obviously, when you look at how much money is being made each guy, you'd think that's going to be [the] No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3."
Mon, 17 Mar 2014 11:33:57 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is scheduled to work out for some of team's skill position players next week in Arizona.

Tue, 11 Mar 2014 07:15:22 -0700
The Washington Redskins agreed to an undisclosed deal with free-agent WR Andre Roberts (Cardinals).
Fantasy Tip: Roberts was an asset at times in point-per-reception leagues. He gives Pierre Garcon a set of steady hands on the other side and could thrive with the abundance of attention paid to Garcon. Roberts has averaged 53 catches per season the last three years and should be a later-round pick, WR4 or WR5 in PPR leagues this season.
Sat, 08 Mar 2014 19:44:20 -0800
Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent WR Andre Roberts is not expected to be back, as the team will likely pursue a cheaper option. Roberts is certain to test the open market so he can find a bigger role than he had in Arizona. His role was dramatically reduced in head coach Bruce Arians' tight-end-heavy offense.
Mon, 24 Feb 2014 14:41:56 -0800

Fri, 15 Nov 2013 12:42:09 -0800
Arizona Cardinals WR Andre Roberts (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is listed as probable for Week 11.

Thu, 14 Nov 2013 15:05:11 -0800
Arizona Cardinals WR Andre Roberts (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Wed, 13 Nov 2013 17:55:26 -0800

Sun, 13 Oct 2013 09:44:27 -0700
There does not appear to be much optimism about WR Larry Fitzgerald's (hamstring) availability for Week 6.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to wait for the late game inactive lists to be announced before finding out if Fitzgerald will play. If he does not play, Andre Roberts could get a mild bump in terms of his value in point-per-receptions leagues, but is only a flex option in those leagues.
Fri, 04 Oct 2013 09:12:58 -0700
Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said head coach Bruce Arians' offensive system is the most complex and difficult offense he's had to learn in his career. He's only completed 57 percent of his passes for 1,010 yards and four touchdowns and six interceptions. The Cardinals rank 18th in the NFL in passing, 26th in rushing and 27th in overall offense. "It's the whole offense," WR Andre Roberts said. "He's (Palmer) not played well at times, receivers have not played as well at times, the offensive line, running backs. It's a team effort. Especially on offense, you've got to have all 11 guys on the same page." WR Larry Fitzgerald said there are "a lot of nuances" in the system, but if done right, "it's pretty invincible." Palmer has been sacked 10 times and will have a new left tackle, OT Bradley Sowell, protecting his blind side in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.
Fantasy Tip: There may still be hope for Palmer and the rest of Arizona's offensive production, but time is running out. The offensive line must do a better job at protecting Palmer and opening lanes for the running game. the Panthers' front seven will pose a tough test again this weekend.
Fri, 13 Sep 2013 13:44:20 -0700
Arizona Cardinals WR Andre Roberts (quadriceps) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 13, and is probable for Week 2.
Fantasy Tip: With Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) questionable for the game, Roberts could see even more looks in the passing game. Even if Fitz suits up, Roberts could make for a sneaky flex play in deep leagues.
Fri, 13 Sep 2013 12:54:31 -0700
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 2.
Fantasy Tip: Fitzgerald could be a game-time decision, so owners will have to monitor the inactive lists to see if he will play. If he does not play, Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts likely will have increased fantasy value for Week 2. If Fitzgerald is able to play, he should be seen as a borderline No. 1 receiver because he could be limited with the hamstring injury.
Thu, 12 Sep 2013 16:55:26 -0700

Fri, 06 Sep 2013 14:19:57 -0700

Wed, 15 May 2013 15:04:08 -0700
Arizona Cardinals QB Carson Palmer said he wants to build chemistry with all of the wide receivers because he will not be able to throw to WR Larry Fitzgerald all the time. "It's of the utmost importance to be on the same page with Larry, but it's of the utmost importance to be on the same page with every one of those guys because the ball can't always go to him," Palmer said. "I know that's not what he wants to hear, but that's the truth. There will be teams that key on him and there will be games where he doesn't have as many catches as other games. It's that much more important I have that rhythm and timing down with [WR Michael Floyd] and [WR Andre Roberts] and whoever that third and fourth guy is going to be."
Tue, 14 May 2013 21:00:05 -0700
Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald will be lined up in different spots this year, sometimes working in the slot with WR Andre Roberts on the outside.
Fantasy Tip: Regardless of where Fitzgerald lines up, he will again be a top-notch fantasy option worthy of a selection in the neighborhood of Rounds 4 to 6 on Draft Day.
Tue, 14 May 2013 20:59:32 -0700
Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd looked impressive in the first day of organized team activities (OTAs) Tuesday, May 14. He ran with the first team more than WR Andre Roberts, who also had a good showing.
Wed, 30 Jan 2013 10:21:39 -0800

Sun, 25 Nov 2012 21:22:11 -0800
Arizona Cardinals WR Andre Roberts had nine catches for 92 yards in the Week 12 game against the St. Louis Rams.
Fantasy Tip: Roberts has managed 65 or more receiving yards in four of his past five games, although he hasn't found the end zone in four straight games. As such, he should be treated as more of a WR3/4 or flex play heading into Week 13.
Tue, 13 Nov 2012 12:30:29 -0800
Arizona Cardinals WR Early Doucet will likely be the odd-man out with WR Michael Floyd expected to become a bigger part of the offense in the second half of the season. WR Andre Roberts will likely line up opposite WR Larry Fitzgerald in the team's two-receiver sets, but Floyd is a prototypical outside receiver in three-wide sets. "If Mike played more, he's just learning the 'Z' (position) and I would be forced to go into the slot," Roberts said. "I don't know what that would do to my reps. We have a whole bunch of formations. We'll see."
