Andre Roberts WR WAS 5 Days
Roberts caught four passes on five targets for 57 yards in Week 2.
DeSean Jackson suffered a shoulder injury in the first half and missed the rest of the game. Expect Roberts to be more involved in the offense if Jackson misses time.

Roberts caught one pass on three targets for 22 yards in Week 1.
Roberts' looks will be inconsistent for the much of the season. He sits behind Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson on the depth chart.

Roberts caught two passes for a team-leading 54 receiving yards Monday against the Browns.
Roberts hauled in both passes thrown his way, and has a chance to make an impact out of the slot this season. However, he likely benefitted from the absence of receiver Pierre Garcon in this one, so there will probably be less targets to go around when the team is at full strength.

Roberts started in place of DeSean Jackson (ankle) in Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, the Washington Post reports.
Roberts is locked in as the No. 3 wide receiver, with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson obviously considered the starters, and no real competition coming from behind. Neither starter's injury is considered serious, but Garcon's had a bit of trouble staying healthy over the years.

Redskins WR Andre Roberts is working as the returner with both the kick and punt units.
Roberts signed on with the Redskins to be their No. 2 receiver but suffered a quick demotion when Washington brought in DeSean Jackson a month later. The silver lining is the reduced offensive role opens up Roberts to help on special teams. Roberts has not been particularly successful as a returner, though, averaging a measly 6.9 yards per punt return and 22.4 yards per kick return. Washington would do well to find a better option.

The Redskins are considering using Andre Roberts on kick returns.
It's not an ideal role for Roberts, who averaged 22.4 yards on kick returns in his first two seasons with the Cardinals. Roberts is also the Redskins' No. 3 receiver, so they may not want to risk exposing him to injury. Chris Thompson, Richard Crawford, and Niles Paul are also candidates to be used in the return game.

Andre Roberts expressed a bit of frustration with the Redskins' signing of DeSean Jackson.
Roberts agreed to terms with the Redskins on a four-year, $16 million deal before free agency even opened. He "envisioned being the No. 2 receiver," but now admits he doesn't "know how it's going to work out." New coach Jay Gruden is going to run a pass-happy offense, so Roberts will get his chances out of the slot. But his fantasy appeal is low. Roberts is, at best, the No. 4 option.

The Washington Post reports the Redskins and free agent WR Andre Roberts have agreed to a deal.
A deal can't be signed until 4 PM ET, but all signs point to Roberts landing in D.C. He just turned 26 in January, is from nearby South Carolina, and played his college ball at Citadel. Roberts can play outside and in the slot. He'll slide in as the starter opposite Pierre Garcon and will likely end Santana Moss' run in Washington.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports free agent Andre Roberts is drawing interest from the Redskins and Browns.
Roberts is 26 years old and likely aiming for a starting job after being buried behind Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, and Rob Housler in Arizona last year. The Browns could smoothly plug him in opposite Josh Gordon, upgrading on Greg Little. The Skins would be an unattractive locale for Roberts' fantasy value.

On NBCSN's Pro Football Talk, free agent WR Andre Roberts said he does not expect to re-sign with the Cardinals.
"I don't think I'll be back in Arizona," Roberts said. "I haven't received any phone calls from Arizona." The writing has been on the wall for quite some time. Roberts wants the pay and playing time of a number two wideout, and Arizona is unwilling to offer either. Roberts is our No. 8 free agent wide receiver.
