WR Seth Roberts - Oakland Raiders
|6-2, 195||Born: 2-22-1991||College: West Alabama||Drafted: ---|
Week 11: at Arizona Cardinals
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Raiders passing offense is one of the toughest to watch in the league. Derek Carr has thrown for zero touchdowns in three of his last four games while getting pressured and sacked routinely behind a porous offensive line hampered by shoddy play from their tackles. The Raiders receivers simply cannot get separation in time for Carr to find them. No wide receiver in Oakland has exceeded 50 receiving yards since Week 5, as this passing game is predicated on quick looks to either Jared Cook or Jalen Richard. Cook had a few monstrous games earlier this year but has been rather inconsistent since his hot start. Richard has been the most consistent contributor in this passing offense as he has been the king of dump-offs, consistently hauling in at least four passes for 40 or more receiving yards in five straight games. It is not a recipe for success for the Raiders when facing a Cardinals team that owns the highest blitz rate with the sixth-most sacks in the league while Derek Carr has noticeably struggled under pressure this season. This Raiders offensive line has given up six or more sacks in three games this season and is tied for allowing the seventh-most sacks on the year. With Carr under duress and at least one of his receivers blanketed by Patrick Peterson, it appears this will be another uphill battle for the Raiders offense unless they can rely on their ground game. The one matchup to call out here will be that of Jared Cook, as the Cardinals have allowed given up at least four receptions and 45 yards to a tight end in five of nine games this season despite allowing just two touchdowns to the position in Weeks 1 and 2. Considering Carr will need to get rid of the ball quickly while avoiding Patrick Peterson, Cook could easily lead the team in targets for the second straight week.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 10 vs LAC (3 / 3 / 39 / 0 rec)
Roberts wasn't targeted until the fourth quarter. He made back-to-back nice grab for 15 yards each. The first, he held on despite taking a big hit to his legs that flipped him head over heels. The next, he did a nice job getting both feet down along the sideline and then catching his momentum to tip toe up the sideline for six extra yards. Roberts' third catch was meaningless on the final play of the game.
2018 Week 9 vs SF (2 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Roberts was third on the team in snaps at the receiver position but failed to make an impact. He had a costly holding call on a run play that caused a promising second-quarter drive to stall.
2018 Week 8 vs IND (4 / 2 / 42 / 1 rec)
Roberts took advantage of a busted coverage on a 31-yard touchdown catch down the seam. The Raiders had three receivers running routes on the right side of the field and Roberts came out of the pack with no Colts defender near him for the easy touchdown. While Roberts will probably never be a high-volume receiver, he has been a solid red zone threat with 13 career touchdown grabs despite limited playing time. Roberts did a nice job tapping his toes on an 11-yard sideline grab.
2018 Week 6 vs SEA (6 / 5 / 31 / 0 rec)
With Amari Cooper missing most of the game with a concussion, Roberts stepped into his spot and was second on the team in targets behind only Jalen Richard. Every catch was on a short route and his long gain of the day went for just nine yards.
2018 Week 2 vs DEN (3 / 3 / 43 / 1 rec)
Roberts operated as the third receiver and continues to be one of Carr's favorite targets in the red zone. He caught a 20-yard touchdown on a seam route over the middle. Roberts got inside leverage on the cornerback and Jared Cook's route held the safety just long enough to allow Carr to fire it in between the two defenders.
2018 Week 1 vs LAR (2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Roberts was the third receiver and played extensively, though the Raiders also employed two-tight end sets often. Roberts only catch came on a quick wide receiver screen on third and long, which he was able to convert into a gain of 11 yards to pick up the first down.
