RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Robertsí first season with the Redskins was highly disappointing. He was expected to take on a larger role until the team picked up DeSean Jackson, dropping him to the teamís slot receiver much like he was with Arizona. His 2014 campaign resulted in 36 receptions for 453 yards and two touchdowns on 72 targets. The team drafted Jamison Crowder in the 4th round, who has a similar skill set but more upside, leaving Roberts fighting for a similar or even smaller role in 2015.

2014

After laboring behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd for two years, Roberts finds himself in Washington, laboring behind DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. Nonetheless, he presumably gets a quarterback upgrade with Robert Griffin under center, and Roberts should have a significant role as the teamís primary slot man. At 5-11, 195 and with 4.46 speed and good quickness, Roberts can get open in the short areas of the field. Heís not much of a red-zone threat, however, and Jacksonís likely to run most of the deeper routes. Moreover, tight end Jordan Reed should also see his share of targets.

2013

Roberts was the team's most productive and efficient receiver last year Ė but that's damning with faint praise. While his 6.7 YPT ranked 33rd out of the 39 100-target receivers, it was far better than Larry Fitzgerald's league-low 5.1 mark, and both suffered from the same quarterbacking deficit. At 5-11, 195 and with 4.46 speed, Roberts is a quick, nimble underneath receiver, but he's not going to make more than the occasional big play. And with Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd around, he's unlikely to see much red-zone work. But the upgrades at offensive line, quarterback and head coach should benefit all three receivers, and Robertsí skill set is a nice complement to that of his bigger, more physical teammates.

2012

Roberts caught 51 passes and tied for second on the team in targets in 2011, but will be hard-pressed to match that in 2012. The drafting of Michael Floyd may not push Roberts out of a starting spot right away, but we expect Roberts to fall down the depth chart at some point this year. Roberts' numbers last year were middling - 51 catches, 586 yards and two touchdowns - and probably won't become any better than that this year.

2011

Roberts, a virtual unknown heading into the 2010 season, made a fantasy splash down the stretch, finishing the year with 24 receptions, 307 yards, and two touchdowns. With the departure of Steve Breaston and the injury-plagued history of Early Doucet, Roberts could find himself with the opportunity to seize the No. 2 slot. Roberts, who will be catching passes from Kevin Kolb instead of John Skelton in 2011, could be primed for a solid season in the desert.

2010

Roberts is expected to compete with Justin Miller for the return specialist duties during training camp. In the long run, he may be able to fill the No. 3 receiver slot as the comparisons here have been made to current starter Steve Breaston. Unless your league counts return yardage, it's unlikely that Roberts will provide enough consistent help in the passing game to merit consideration on draft day.
