Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs LAC (6 / 5 / 48 / 0 rec)
Roberts had a pair of unnecessary block in the back penalties that brought back big gains. He didn't do much damage until garbage time, when he caught three consecutive passes against the Chargers prevent defense.
2017 Week 13 vs NYG (6 / 5 / 46 / 0 rec)
Roberts had a productive day from the slot, with solid gains on a pair of slants and another decent gain on a crossing route. Roberts should have been credited with a 9-yard touchdown catch. It looked like he was able to get a knee down in the end zone while securing the pass but the play was ruled incomplete on the field and there wasn't quite enough on review to overturn the call on the field, so the original call stood after review.
2017 Week 12 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)
Roberts had a solid game, with a nice grab for 20 yards against tight coverage.
2017 Week 11 vs NE (9 / 5 / 36 / 0 rec)
Roberts was the second-most targeted player of the game and made a couple nice catches but also made some costly mistakes that killed any chance the Raiders had of winning. He as unable to stretch out and secure a third-down pass slightly in front of him to keep the chains moving on the opening drive. Roberts caught a red zone pass that should have set up the Raiders 1st-and-goal inside the five-yard line but he never pulled the ball into his body, swinging it wildly in one hand, which led to it being punched out for a costly fumble.
2017 Week 7 vs KC (6 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Roberts continues to see a ton of snaps. He tied Michael Crabtree for the second-most snaps at the wide receiver position with 72 (88% of the offensive snaps). Roberts had a rough game. He dropped what should have been an 18-yard gain on a ball that hit him in the hands.
2017 Week 6 vs LAC (3 / 3 / 35 / 0 rec)
Roberts was excellent from the slot. He caught each of his three targets for gains of 8, 15 and 10 yards. The 15-yard gain was an impressive catch. He leaped high to corral the ball and held on despite a defender coming underneath and taking out his legs. The 10-yard gain was a similar play with Roberts going high over the middle and holding on through contact.
2017 Week 5 vs BAL (4 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)
Roberts played 50 of 56 snaps but wasn't a huge part of the game plan. Most of his yards came on a 22-yard completion down the sideline. Manuel rolled right and then reversed field to roll back to his left to buy time. Roberts sprinted down the sideline to get open and pick up the big gain.
2017 Week 4 vs DEN (5 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)
Roberts played very well. He had a 15-yard gain over the middle early. He lined up in the slot, faked like he was going outside and then cut back across the middle. He snagged a 22-yard reception later in the game from EJ Manuel on the same route.
2017 Week 3 vs WAS (5 / 4 / 20 / 0 rec)
Roberts led the Raiders receivers in snaps, targets, and yards, though that's not saying much in a game in which the Raiders receivers totaled just 40 receiving yards. All four of his catches came on short passes with his long gain going for just nine yards. Roberts was targeted in the corner of the end zone and was able to draw a pass interference penalty. He remains one of Carr's favorite red zone options. Carr targeted Roberts in tight coverage down the seam on a pass that was intercepted by Kendall Fuller when Roberts wasn't able to find the ball.
2017 Week 2 vs NYJ (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Roberts is used sparingly, but an inordinate number of his targets come in the red zone. Carr targeted Roberts in the end zone, but coverage was tight and the corner knocked the ball away.
2017 Week 1 vs TEN (1 / 1 / 19 / 1 rec)
Roberts is going to see less targets with the arrivals of Cordarrelle Patterson and Jared Cook. However, he looks like he'll remain a red zone favorite for Carr. His only catch of the day was a 19-yard touchdown where he ran past the slot corner and Carr rifled it in before the safety could get over.
