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.

Week 16: vs Philadelphia Eagles

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Kirk Cousins started for Washington back in Week Three - this week it looks like Robert Griffin III is going to go, so looking back in time won't inform us much regarding Griffin's prospects in this game. Griffin has been in and out of the lineup this year - when in, he's posted 104/150 for 1,138 yards, three TDs and three interceptions thrown, with 27/146/0 rushing to his credit over seven appearances. Last week in New York Andre Roberts (four targets for 2/81/0 receiving), Silas Redd (three for 3/62/0) and Pierre Garcon (seven for 4/36/0) led the team in receiving - running back Chris Thompson (four for 3/22/1) handled the lone TD of the day from Griffin. Not exactly a set of household words in fantasy circles, are they? We'll see who Griffin relies on here in Week 16 with a week of preparation with the first team. The Eagles' pass D is awfully putrid, ranking 28th in the NFL averaging 257.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 29 passing scores given out vs. 10 interceptions (23rd in the NFL) and despite an impressive 47 sacks recorded (second in the NFL). The secondary simply doesn't play well for the Eagles, and that's that. Dez Bryant deconstructed them with eight targets for 6/114/3 receiving last week, as Tony Romo threw 22/31 for 249 net yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown while taking three sacks for -16 yards. Advantage, Washington.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs IND (5 / 2 / 46 / 0 rec)

Andre Roberts only caught two of his five targets on the day. He had one bad drop early in the game with Washington driving that bounced off his hands. He also had a pretty toe tapping sideline catch that set up a score in the first half where he showed off great concentration and body control.

2014 Week 14 vs STL (2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)

Andre Roberts looked to get more involved in the passing game this week but was overshadowed by the play of veteran Santana Moss in the absence of WR DeSean Jackson. He caught both his targets for 11 yards, and failed to make much of an impact in the return game against a very good Rams special teams. Roberts looks like his role in the Washington offense is set as the slot receiver and he isn't a dynamic enough receiver to warrant any more looks.

2014 Week 15 vs NYG (4 / 2 / 81 / 0 rec)

Andre Roberts turned two of four targets into a team-leading 81 yards receiving. Much of it came on one 61 yard reception that Roberts caught short over the middle and turned upfield for a long gain. Roberts ran out of steam before he could score.
