Roberts caught his only target for eight yards and operated as the Lions' starting punt and kick returner in the team's 39-35 victory over the Colts' on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear whether Roberts completely seized the punt-return job from Golden Tate considering Tate entered the contest as questionable to play, but Roberts has definitely taken over as the Lions' starting kick returner since the coaching staff wants Ameer Abdullah, last year's kickoff-return man, to solely focus on running back duties in 2016. Regardless, Roberts is an afterthought in Lions' passing game, and, unless that changes, he's therefore an afterthought in fantasy circles as well.

Roberts logged one reception for 14 yards during the Lions' 30-9 preseason loss to the Ravens on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The Lions project to carry five wide receivers on their active roster entering the regular season, and Golden Tate, Marvin Jones, Anquan Boldin and TJ Jones appear locked-in. Thus, one job remains up for the taking, and, even though he wasn't particularly impressive on Saturday, Roberts appears poised to claim it for his own due to his veteran presence and capability returning kickoffs. However, such a role doesn't garner much, if any, fantasy relevance, leaving Roberts squarely off the fantasy radar entering the regular season.

Roberts totaled 57 yards and a touchdown on three catches in Friday's 30-17 preseason victory over the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old receiver hauled in a 28-yard touchdown from Dan Orlovsky right before halftime, capping a seven-play, 81-yard scoring drive. Roberts is working on a team-friendly, one-year deal and competing with fellow veterans Corey Fuller and Jeremy Kerley for a roster spot behind starters Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate.

Roberts signed a one-year deal with the Lions on Monday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts was released by the Redskins last month after hauling in 47 passes over 25 games with the team. The 28-year-old drew considerable interest as a free agent, and he'll now head to Detroit, joining a receiving corps that must make up for the loss of Calvin Johnson to retirement. Roberts figures to compete for a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver spot with the likes of Corey Fuller, Jeremy Kerley and Marvin Jones. The Lions are also reportedly interested in adding veteran Anquan Boldin, who will visit with the team Monday.

Roberts is visiting the Bills on Thursday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Released by Washington on Tuesday, the 28-year-old Roberts already has three visits lined up, with the first coming Thursday/Friday in Buffalo. Regardless of where he ends up signing, he'll need to compete for a potential role as the No. 3 or 4 receiver. Roberts caught just 47 passes in 25 games during his two seasons with Washington, eventually getting demoted to fourth or fifth on the wideout depth chart. Buffalo doesn't have any established talent at the position behind starters Sammy Watkins (foot) and Robert Woods.

Roberts (knee) was released by the Redskins on Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts caught just 47 passes in 25 games during his two-year tenure in Washington, eventually falling to fourth or fifth on the depth chart before a knee injury ended his 2015 season early. His fate was sealed when the Redskins drafted Josh Doctson in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, further bolstering a receiving corps that already included DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder. Wherever he lands, Roberts may need to prove that he's still worthy of an NFL roster spot.

Roberts is slated for season-ending knee surgery, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The procedure will repair a torn meniscus, which spurred three consecutive absences. Now on injured reserve, he'll end a dismal season with just 11 catches (on 21 targets) for 135 yards, though he did return one of seven kickoffs for a touchdown.

Roberts (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills, ESPN's John Keim reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Jay Gruden suggested Thursday that Roberts may have suffered a season-ending meniscus injury. Even if the veteran wideout does make it back for the end of the regular season and/or the playoffs, he'll be no higher than fourth or fifth on the depth chart.

Head coach Jay Gruden expressed worry Thursday that Roberts may have a season-ending meniscus concern in his knee.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts has made nary a practice appearance in past weeks and missed the past two games due to a knee injury. Considering the nature of the ailment could be known in the near future, his fate for the remaining 2015 slate is potentially in peril.

Roberts (knee) is listed as inactive Sunday at Chicago, Liz Clarke of Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a third absence in five contests, Roberts will continue his plunge to the ranks of fantasy non-entities.
