Arizona Cardinals: Should Andre Roberts be Targeted in Fantasy Football?


Fantasy football, it’s fun, challenging, and gives people bragging rights among competitive friends. I like fantasy football due to the challenge it presents but also, for some reason, I’m not that big of a fan. I don’t know why, I’m just not.

I haven’t played fantasy football for like three seasons now and haven’t kept up with what’s been going on with it at all. With this article, I will give you 100 percent of my thoughts on the subject.

Last season, Andre Roberts had his best season with career highs in catches (64), yards (759), and touchdowns (five), while mostly being the second receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald. Roberts had four different QB’s throwing to him last year, this year, there’s only one QB he’s got to get on the same page with, so I’d think it’s safe to say that Andre will have around the same stats as last season.

The reason I believe he won’t really improve upon his numbers is because of Michael Floyd. Roberts is most likely going to be playing from the slot and while he’s going to get his touches, I’d expect Fitz and Floyd to get most of the looks down field.

I’m not quite to sure if all fantasy leagues work the same way, if you only get just two receivers or if some leagues let you have back ups you can switch out or what not. I would think Roberts will be an average number two receiver and if there’s any leagues out there that allow back ups so you can sub players from time to time, then I would definitely take him so if a game comes along where your number two receiver is going to have match up problems.

I think I’m going to start playing fantasy again and catch up with what’s going on (relearn the league) so I can give my two cents and not feel so clueless and being on the outside looking in.
