2018 Fantasy Outlook
Playing third fiddle to Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, Roberts caught a career-high 43 passes in 2017, but never posted more than 52 receiving yards in a single game and found the end zone just once all season after racking up 10 total scores during his first two years in the league. Following the arrival of Jordy Nelson, who replaces Crabtree, Roberts will look to reprise his role as the Raiders' No. 3 wide receiver. Read Past Outlooks

Career highs in catches, yardage
WROakland Raiders
January 2, 2019
Roberts caught five passes on as many targets for 31 yards and lost four yards on his lone carry during Sunday's 35-3 loss to the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
Roberts triggered.a bonus in his contract by notching 45 catches on the season and also finished with a career-high 494 receiving yards and two scores in 15 games. The fact that the yardage total amounted to a personal best for the wideout underscores the limited upside he possesses, despite handling fairly high snap counts throughout the season. The Raiders currently lack significant competition at slot receiver, so Roberts is tentatively in line to fill those duties again in 2019, the final season of his three-year deal.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Roberts reached the 50-yard receiving mark in just one game during his sophomore campaign in the league, but he racked up five touchdowns through the Raiders' first 11 games alone before cooling off. Fellow receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree remain quarterback Derek Carr's top two options in the team's passing attack, but with the departure of No. 4 wideout Andre Holmes, Roberts could be in line for additional targets. On the other hand, newcomer Jared Cook -- who will finally give Oakland a sufficient threat at tight end -- may slightly limit Roberts' red-zone volume after seeing 21 balls thrown his way inside the 20-yard line during the 2016 season. If the third-year receiver can limit his drops right out of the gate, free agent signee Cordarrelle Patterson shouldn't pose much of a risk to overtake Roberts' slot position, although he may serve as a deep threat occasionally. Given the Raiders' explosiveness on offense, Roberts could be a sneaky pick in deeper fantasy leagues as he looks to prove his long-term worth to the Raiders before becoming a restricted free agent in 2018.
Roberts put together a solid rookie campaign last season, emerging as the No. 3 wideout with 32 receptions for 480 yards and five touchdowns. The undrafted free agent could see an increase in production as he continues to grow alongside Derek Carr, making him a viable option for deeper fantasy leagues.
Roberts was an undrafted rookie free agent that signed with the Raiders earlier this offseason. He figures to be the fourth or fifth option on the depth chart, but could see more time if they were to experience any injuries at the wide receiver position. Roberts won't hold a ton of fantasy value unless that occurs.
