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 3: at Philadelphia Eagles

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Robert Griffin III is out for 4-8 weeks due to a dislocated (but not fractured) ankle, so the Washington offense belongs to Kirk Cousins now. He looked good off the bench last week (22/33 for 250 yards, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown), but Cousins has had problems previously once he becomes officially 'the Man' at quarterback. We'll see how he responds to his elevation as starter this time around, under new offensive coordinator Sean McVay. The Eagles' pass D is ranked 11th so far this year in terms of yards allowed (207.0), but they have coughed up five passing scores in two games vs. one interception generated. Andrew Luck was not sacked last week on the way to 20/34 for 172 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown. Cousins had a hot start to his tenure as starting quarterback. Against the so-so Eagles, this looks like a neutral matchup at Lincoln Financial Field.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs HOU (3 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)

Andre Roberts was targeted on deep pass late in the first quarter as he got open streaking up the right sideline but the small receiver barely stepped out of bounds. Roberts secured a nice pass from Griffin in the third quarter on a deep crossing route, finding a soft spot in the Texans zone for 22 yards. Roberts serves as the primary return man.

2014 Week 2 vs JAX (5 / 4 / 57 / 0 rec, 1 / 19 / 0 rush)

Andre Roberts had a busy day returning punts from a terrorized Jacksonville offense that seemed determined to get Chad Henne killed. Roberts threatened to return one of these punts early in the third quarter, racing up the right sideline to the Jaguars' 30 yard line before getting knocked out of bounds. Roberts looked like a favored target of Kirk Cousins as well. The tough replacement for the ageing Santana Moss looks to be the main slot receiver in three WR sets. Roberts had his second week in a row grabbing a deep post in the middle of the field, snatching the ball in stride and running after the catch for a big 32 yard gain. He picked up chunk yardage with his feet as well, taking an end-around to the right side for a 19 yard gain. Roberts showed some nice shiftiness and power on the play, breaking at least one arm tackle and weaving through traffic like a kick returner. Roberts got snaps all over the field, lining up on the outside on a play and drawing a PI penalty. Roberts setup the corner with a stutter step before running past him up the right sideline. If Cousins had thrown a slightly better ball, Roberts could have had a very big gain on the play.

Redskins | Andre Roberts to see more action? (Mon Sep 8, 03:24 PM) - Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts may be more involved in the offense as opportunities arise, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Our View: Roberts has the speed to stretch the field, and he fits well behind Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. We can't imagine him having a ton of fantasy value even if he does earn a larger role.
