2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Texans lost a pair of cornerbacks during the offseason roster shuffle but added Roby, a five-year veteran that's missed one game during his career. He slots into the starting job opposite Jonathan Joseph. Roby has shown a nose for the ball in the past with seven interceptions and seven forced fumbles. Read Past Outlooks

High tackle count

September 11, 2019
Roby made nine tackles (eight solo) in Monday's 30-28 loss to the Saints.
ANALYSIS
The sixth-year pro played all 66 defensive snaps in the season opener, and the Texans tasked Roby with covering star WR Michael Thomas, explaining his impressive tackle count. It's clear Roby is the team's top corner, giving him solid IDP potential, especially in Week 2 versus the Jaguars and rookie QB Gardner Minshew.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2014
Roby has huge shoes to fill in ascending into Aqib Talib's former spot opposite Chris Harris, but let's not pretend that Roby hasn't seen plenty of snaps since joining the team as a first-round pick in 2014. Roby has been great at getting his hands on the ball as a No. 3 corner, tallying six picks, five forced fumbles, and recovering four fumbles during his career. His 17 passes defensed in 2017 more than doubled any of his teammates. Head coach Vance Joseph wants Roby to play sounder and take fewer chances, but Roby is still going to have a nose for the ball -- just like the man he's replacing.
By most accounts, Roby took a step back in his third season in Denver, recording career lows in tackles and passes defended. He also posted a 48.7 grade per Pro Football Focus, down from 76.1 in 2014 and 81.8 in 2015. He did get hot in bunches, however, with all eight of his passes defensed, his two interceptions, his lone forced fumble, and his two scores taking place over four games. Look for him to be more consistently productive with Denver’s reinforced front seven.
The 2014 first-round pick was tied for second on the team in passes defended in 2015 with 10, but did his best work with the ball on the ground. His fumble recovery for a touchdown capped an improbable win against Kansas City in Week 2 and his forced fumble against Pittsburgh in the AFC divisional round sparked the team's comeback. He has already deserves his spot in the No Fly Zone as an outside corner in sub-packages, but he could see a spike in playing time should starter Aqib Talib miss any time due to suspension.
Taken with the 31st overall pick in the 2014 draft, Roby is expected to start on the opposite side of newly-acquired Aqib Talib. He'll certainly get some competition from Chris Harris, although the latter is recovering from a torn ACL. Roby could be a heavily targeted corner this season because of Talib, which will put the spotlight on him to make plays.
