Buffalo Bills WR Andre Roberts has been consistently rotated in with the first-team offense along with WRs Cole Beasley, John Brown, Robert Foster and Zay Jones. 'He's done a good job,' head coach Sean McDermott said. 'We've had some injuries there so he is very willingly stepped up and shown what he has.'
Huddle Up: It's expected Beasley and Brown would be the top two receivers in Buffalo, but it's a rather fluid situation and Roberts could take advantage. However, at this point he is nothing more than a late-round flier in most fantasy leagues until further notice.

Free-agent WR Andre Roberts (Redskins) signed an undisclosed deal with the Detroit Lions Monday, June 13.
Huddle Up: The Lions have openings in their receiving corps, and Roberts could wind up competing for a role at the back end of that group as well as bringing something to the table as a return man.

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts was released Tuesday, May 17. The move will save the team nearly $4 million on the salary cap.
Huddle Up: Roberts caught only 47 passes for 588 yards and two TDs in two seasons in D.C., and with the Skins adding Josh Doctson and Ryan Grant in the last two drafts, he became expendable. He now joins the free-agent pool, where he'll try to catch on with a team as a bottom-of-the-depth-chart wideout.

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts is signed through the 2017 season with a cap hit of $5 million for 2016. Beat writer John Keim suggests the emergence of WR Jamison Crowder as the No. 1 slot receiver could mean Roberts is expendable. He has posted 46 receptions with two touchdowns in two seasons with Washington.
Huddle Up: The Redskins have veterans DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon along with Crowder and Ryan Grant, so shelling out $5 million for Roberts seems silly--especially when they need to pay Kirk Cousins.

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts will enter training camp as the slot receiver as well as the primary backup to both wide receiver spots.
Huddle Up: The Redskins haven't shown themselves to be a prolific enough passing offense to support a third fantasy receiver, putting a serious crimp in Roberts' fantasy outlook.

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts has come to terms with being No. 3 on the depth chart. Roberts said he may have gone in a different direction during free agency if he knew WR DeSean Jackson was going to sign, but plans to make the best of the situation.
Huddle Up: Roberts played third fiddle in Arizona, and it looks like more of the same in D.C. where Jackson and Pierre Garcon are the the clear starters atop a deep and talented WR depth chart.

Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts wants to serve as a return man
for both punts and kickoffs. "I feel like I'm one of those players
who when he gets the ball in his hands he can make some big plays,"
said Roberts. "That's what I want to bring to this team as well, not
just as a receiver but also on special teams."
Huddle Up: Roberts had his worst season (43-471-2) last year for the Cards, and
is looking to make an impression on his new squad, which suddenly
appears stacked at the WR positions.

The Washington Redskins may consider using WR Andre Roberts as a kick and punt returner this upcoming season, but he did not have great numbers when handled the role with the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Washington is looking for ways to get their money out of Roberts, who they signed to be their WR2 before DeSean Jackson became available.

The Washington Redskins and free-agent WR Andre Roberts agreed to a
4-year, $16 million deal Tuesday, March 11, including $8 million in
guaranteed money. The first year of his salary is for $1.25 million
in fully guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Roberts, who started 35 games and averaged 45.5 receptions per
season in his 4 years with the Cards, will be penciled in as a
starter opposite No. 1 WR Pierre Garcon in the Skins' new-look
offense under head coach Jay Gruden and OC Sean McVay.

Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent WR Andre Roberts said he is not sure if he will re-sign with the team this offseason.
Huddle Up: Roberts was third on the squad with 43 receptions this past season, but that marked a three-year low as did his 471 receiving yards and 2 TDs. He's clearly been surpassed by Michael Floyd, the team's 2012 first-round pick, in the WR pecking order and would be best served seeking out a new home if he has designs on being a starting WR.
