Despite a slow start as a returner in Arizona, Roberts will be given a chance at punt returns in Washington after having been an elite returner in college who led the nation in yards per return as a junior.

Summary

For about a month, Andre Roberts thought his prospects were rising. In March, Roberts signed a 4-year, $16mm deal with $8mm guaranteed and was penciled in as the starter opposite Pierre Garcon. A month later, the Redskins signed DeSean Jackson to a 5-year deal and any hope Roberts had of being a full-time starter went out the door. Instead, Roberts will be the team's primary slot receiver and see action in 3WR sets. The good news is Jay Gruden is a fan of 3WR sets and neither Garcon nor Jackson are known for their durability. As a third receiver Roberts has minimal fantasy value. (May 25)

Latest News

Redskins | Robert Griffin III in sync with Andre Roberts (Fri Jul 25, 10:51 AM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and WR Andre Roberts are displaying good chemistry in practice Friday, July 25.

Our View: Good news for Roberts and the Washington passing game here. Roberts was upset when the team added DeSean Jackson earlier this year because he assumed he was going to be the WR2 opposite Pierre Garcon. He'll get over it, and now they will use him as a slot receiver. We're expecting a robust passing game from Washington this year, but Roberts has little fantasy value.

Redskins | Andre Roberts might benefit from many weapons (Thu Jul 17, 10:46 PM) - 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 benefactors of having WRs Pierre Garcon and Jackson, as well as TE Jordan Reed, in the offense.

Our View: Roberts will get over it -- eventually. The team wanted to find a more dangerous weapon and clearly Jackson is that guy. Roberts is a better fit inside as a slot receiver anyway. He'll be able to get off the line cleanly and get downfield in a hurry. We're not expecting much from Roberts in terms of fantasy production, but put him on your waiver wire speed dial if he is more involved in the offense than most project right now.
