Roberts did not see a target in Saturday's divisional round loss to the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts had the worst season of his career, as he finished this season with one more reception and 12 more yards than you or I, assuming you're not a professional football player. The Falcons simply have too many offensive weapons for Roberts to see much action, as he only saw four targets this season. It seems likely that he'll try to find a new home this offseason, as he's an unrestricted free agent.

Roberts (knee/ankle) doesn't have a designation for Saturday's wild-card contest versus the Rams, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although every injured Falcon has been cleared of injury for the postseason opener, head coach Dan Quinn was a bit cautious in comments about Roberts, who he said "looks [to be] back to himself," per McClure. Roberts followed up back-to-back absences to start the week with a limited showing Thursday, so his return prowess could be a bit compromised this weekend.

Roberts (knee/ankle) was unable to practice Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Atlanta return man also sat out Tuesday's practice and appears at more risk than any other player on the Falcons' injury report of missing Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Rams. If Roberts is unavailable for the postseason opener, Justin Hardy and Taylor Gabriel (hamstring) would likely be pressed into returner roles on special teams.

Roberts (back) returned to practice Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts has dealt with a couple minor injuries but hasn't been in danger of missing significant time. He'll continue to function as the primary returner on kicks and punts as well as a depth receiver.

Roberts was held out of Wednesday's practice due to a back injury, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

In the offseason, Roberts signed with the Falcons to serve as the primary returner on both kickoffs and punts. His relevance as a pass catcher will more than likely depend on the health of the rest of the receiving corps, which includes a hobbled Julio Jones (toe) and Taylor Gabriel (lower leg) at the moment. More telling than an absence during this week's mandatory minicamp will be one at the outset of training camp in late July. Only time will tell, but Justin Hardy is the next man up when it comes to kick and punt returns in Atlanta.

Roberts didn't practice Wednesday due to an undisclosed injury, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Instead of participating in the minicamp session, Roberts was working on the side with the training staff. With the injury, the receiving corps is banged up at the moment, as Julio Jones continues to recover from foot surgery and Taylor Gabriel is dealing with a strained lower leg. While Roberts will primarily handle kick and punt returns for the Falcons in 2017, he could still factor into the passing attack if the need arises.

Roberts signed a one-year, $1.8 million contract with the Falcons on Monday, Dan Graziano of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts will add depth to Atlanta's group of receivers after totaling 188 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown over 16 games with Detroit in 2016. On top of that, the 29-year-old could be in line to return kicks and punts for his new team, especially since he combined for 993 return yards and two touchdowns last season.

Roberts returned four kickoffs for 76 yards during Saturday's playoff game in Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Per usual, Roberts was near-exclusively contained to special teams on Saturday, but wasn't able to break off any long kickoff returns. The seventh-year veteran will now hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent and likely won't have a problem landing a job with a team in need of a return man.

Roberts (shoulder) is listed as active Saturday at Seattle, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts has totaled just 15 offensive snaps over the last two games, a stretch in which he's hauled in one of two targets for 14 yards. Instead, his relevance resides as a returner, as he finished the regular season eighth in average kickoff return (22.6) and third in average punt return (12.3) among qualified candidates.

Roberts (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts was limited throughout practice this week, but considering his shoulder problem didn't prevent him from suiting up while injured last Sunday, it seems like he'll be available again this weekend. That being said, with just one catch over Detroit's past four games, Roberts doesn't represent much of a fantasy threat heading into an already-intimidating matchup against the Seahawks secondary.
