Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 12 vs CHI (6 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)
Michael Roberts saw more usage in the offense against Chicago but did not have a productive game. Roberts was targeted on both of Matthew Stafford's interceptions. The first interception was a pick-6 where Stafford threw the ball inside of Roberts on an out to the flat, while the second appeared to be a miscommunication on routes in the end zone. Roberts was also targeted up the seam in the end zone, but a Chicago defender made a good deflection on the pass. Roberts has been more involved in the offense throughout this season but struggles to accelerate and move in space.
2018 Week 9 vs MIN (4 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Michael Roberts had a quiet day with only one reception for 12 yards, but his usage is notable. Roberts was running as the single tight end at points throughout the game in the base offense beyond his typical red zone usage. There are targets available with the recent trade of Golden Tate if Roberts continues to progress.
2018 Week 7 vs MIA (3 / 3 / 48 / 2 rec)
Michael Roberts had a career game with two red zone touchdowns. The first was an easy corner route and the second was an out route at the goal line. Roberts was schemed open on the corner route, a notable development for a strong red zone target. Roberts was also pushed out of bounds inside the five-yard line to set up another score.
2018 Week 2 vs SF (1 / 1 / 15 / 1 rec)
Michael Roberts made the most of his lone target converting a high point end zone target for a touchdown. Roberts has a big frame, but with the other receiving options in the offense, is likely limited to a red zone target for Matthew Stafford.
