Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 16 vs IND (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Roberts continues to be a favorite target of Carr near the end zone. He nearly caught a 3-yard touchdown pass. He appeared to come down with the ball, but had it knocked out as he went to the ground.
2016 Week 15 vs SD (3 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)
Roberts continues to get targeted heavily down around the end zone. Carr looked his way down around the goal line despite double-coverage and it led to an easy interception for the Chargers, with the cornerback undercutting Roberts for the interception just shy of the end zone.
2016 Week 14 vs KC (9 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Roberts was heavily involved in the game plan, but had little production to show for it. He played 95% of the snaps (71 of 75) and was second on the team with nine targets. Roberts has emerged as one of Carr's favorite targets in the red zone. He had five red zone targets against the Chiefs (and now has 19 red zone targets on the season). His lone red zone reception on the day was a short pass that actually went for a one-yard loss. Roberts was open for what should have been a 19-yard touchdown, but Carr floated the pass, which allowed the defender to make up ground and get a hand on the pass.
2016 Week 13 vs BUF (5 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
oberts had a quiet game, but he is still one of Carr's favorite targets in the red zone. Roberts almost came down with an 18-yard touchdown but couldn't hold on through contact. He was also targeted on a failed 2-point conversion attempt.
2016 Week 12 vs CAR (4 / 3 / 31 / 1 rec)
Roberts made a pair of key catches early. He caught a 24-yarder over the middle and nearly scored. He was brought down by an ankle at the 6-yard line. A few plays later, he scored a 2-yard touchdown on a leaping grab in the back of the end zone. Roberts went up high to grab the ball over the top of tight coverage from Robert McClain. Roberts caught a 2-point conversion to tie the game midway through the 4th quarter. He found a hole in the zone and sat down to make the catch.
2016 Week 11 vs HOU (3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Roberts had a rough game with a couple of drops. He dropped a perfectly thrown deep ball from Carr that should have gone for a 30+ yard gain and then dropped a short crossing route a few plays later.
2016 Week 9 vs DEN (3 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)
On 3rd-and-2 from the Broncos 6-yard line, Roberts caught a short pass and looked to have room to run (at least for the first down), but lost his footing trying to turn upfield and slipped down untouched shy of the first down. Just inside the red zone, caught a quick slant and ran through multiple tackle attempts, spinning his way for 10 yards and setting up a 1st-and-goal. Roberts was targeted in the end zone and drew a pass interference penalty on the play.
2016 Week 8 vs TB (7 / 3 / 69 / 1 rec)
Roberts made a clutch grab over the middle on the game-tying drive near the end of regulation. He almost caught a 12-yard touchdown on that drive, but he was unable to keep both feet in-bounds along the side of the end zone. Roberts caught the game-winning touchdown late in overtime on a 4th-and-4. He ran a slant and caught the ball in traffic over the middle and was able to run through a pair of tacklers to break off a 41-yard touchdown to win the game.
2016 Week 7 vs JAX (9 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)
Roberts caught a wheel route down the right sideline early in the game for a gain of 26 yards. He also had a short gain on a crossing route on the second drive of the game. Roberts was targeted in the end zone, but coverage was tight and the ball was thrown too far when he ran a seam route from the slot just inside the red zone. Roberts got another end zone target and almost made a spectacular catch for a two-yard touchdown, but his second foot came down just out of bounds in the corner of the end zone. Roberts has seven red zone targets this season, tied with Amari Cooper and just one less than Michael Crabtree.
2016 Week 6 vs KC (6 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Caught a crossing route on third-and-short for a 19-yard gain. Roberts bobbled and dropped a 3rd down pass on a crossing route that probably would have got him enough for a first down had he hung on.
2016 Week 4 vs BAL (3 / 3 / 12 / 1 rec)
Roberts continues to make a surprisingly large impact in the red zone (three touchdowns in four weeks). He caught a 6-yard touchdown pass from Carr on a play-action roll out. Roberts ran a crossing route and used his 4.4 speed to create separation running along the back of the end zone and caught made a nice diving catch, extending his hands away from his body to pull in the pass.
2016 Week 3 vs TEN (6 / 2 / 27 / 1 rec)
Started the game with a brutal drop on what should have been an easy 15-yard gain. He had nobody near him and the ball hit him right in the chest, bouncing off his shoulder pads incomplete. Roberts had a strong catch and run for a 19-yard touchdown in the final minute before halftime. He ran a quick out route and caught the ball short along the sideline. Cornerback Brice McCain took a terrible angle and Roberts was able to use his 4.4 speed to run right past his poor tackle attempt and down the sideline for the touchdown.
2016 Week 1 vs NO (4 / 2 / 19 / 1 rec)
Roberts was open in the end zone in the third quarter for what would have been a 15-yard touchdown catch, but Carr's pass was tipped at the line and fell short. Roberts caught the game-winning touchdown with under a minute left. From 10-yards out, he ran a dig route and caught the quick pass from Carr then spun his way through multiple defenders and into the end zone. Roberts emerged as a key red zone weapon for the Raiders in the second half of 2015 and picked up right where he left off.
