Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 17 vs KC (5 / 5 / 31 / 0 rec, 1 / -4 / 0 rush)
Showed nice hands making a leaping grab in traffic on a slant for an 8-yard gain. The Raiders got it to Roberts on a double reverse but the Chiefs were not fooled at all and he was dropped for a loss on the play. Roberts made a beautiful leaping catch along the sideline for a short gain. While the numbers weren't impressive, it was a strong showing from Roberts who made the most of his limited opportunities.
2018 Week 16 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Roberts played less than half of the snaps, with the Raiders playing a lot of two-tight end sets and also utilizing a fullback at times. All three of Roberts' targets came in the two-minute offense in the final minute before halftime. He had an 11-yard gain on a dump off over the middle after Carr scrambled, showing toughness to push for the first down.
2018 Week 15 vs CIN (4 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec, 1 / -2 / 0 rush)
Roberts had a 20-yard gain down the seam on a well-designed play. A fake toss to the running back fooled the Bengals linebackers and left the middle of the field wide open for Roberts.
2018 Week 14 vs PIT (7 / 5 / 76 / 0 rec)
Roberts tied for most targets amongst the wide receivers with seven. He took a wide receiver screen for a 9-yard gain on the opening drive, getting knocked out of bounds three yards shy of the end zone.
2018 Week 13 vs KC (6 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
Roberts caught a slant at a full sprint on 3rd-and-13 and was able to accelerate and pick up 16 before being dragged down. Roberts drew a pass interference call in the end zone to convert another third down later in the same drive and set up the first touchdown of the game.
2018 Week 12 vs BAL (3 / 2 / 54 / 0 rec, 1 / 11 / 0 rush)
Roberts had catches of 10 and 11 yards in the first minute of the game (one catch was later switched to a run because it was thrown slightly backwards), but saw just a few targets the final 59 minutes. He pulled in a long pass on a go route down the sideline, but was flagged for offensive pass interference due to pushing off late in the route. Roberts hauled in a 44-yard pass deep down the right sideline. He got behind the corner and held on despite taking a shot from the safety.
2018 Week 11 vs ARI (7 / 4 / 38 / 0 rec)
Roberts had a 3rd-down drop in light traffic to force a punt. He made a key 20-yard catch to help setup the game-winning field goal in the final seconds. Roberts caught a quick screen and had plenty of room to run. He made the questionable decision to cut back inside near the end of the run instead of getting out of bounds but the Raiders were able to avert disaster and clock the ball with two seconds left on the clock.
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.
