Andre Roberts injury update: Inactive status actually might not change fantasy value

Christian Petersen

With Ryan Lindley under center and Arizona in a free-fall, there was not much fantasy value to begin with.

Arizona wide receiver Andre Roberts (ankle) is inactive for the Cardinals Week 13 matchup against the New York Jets. Roberts has not yet missed a game this season and has totaled a career-high 639 yards on 50 catches despite Arizona being one of the worst offenses in the NFL. He is actually the team's leading receiver, not Larry Fitzgerald who sits at 627 yards.

There is now a chance that Fitzgerald passes Roberts for the team lead, down only 12 yards, but it's not a certainty with rookie Ryan Lindley making his second start. Lindley has 0 TD and 4 INT on the season.

Fantasy Take: Is this good news for Fitzgerald owners? The only good news for Fitzgerald owners would be the return of Kevin Kolb. John Skelton and Lindley have combined for 2 TD and 9 INT in six starts and Arizona has only one touchdown pass in their last seven games. Fitz rates as a WR2.
