Andre Roberts misses Thursday practice: Fantasy implications

Norm Hall

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts missed his second straight practice on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts missed his second straight practice on Thursday with an ankle injury. Roberts did not play in the Cardinals loss to the Jets in Week 13. Roberts had been the Cardinals leading receiver before he got injured with 50 receptions for 639 yards and five touchdowns.

If Roberts is unable to play on Sunday against the Seahawks rookie Michael Floyd will get the start.

Fantasy Impact: With John Skelton back as the starting quarterback, Roberts could have some fantasy value if he were to actually play on Sunday. But having missed both practices so far this week, Roberts chances aren't looking great.

Keep an eye on if Roberts is able to practice on Friday, but for now keep him out of your starting lineup. Floyd led the Cardinals with 10 targets against the Jets, but only came away with two receptions, so he is a risky play as well.
