Andre Roberts returned to practice for the Cardinals on Monday after missing Friday's preseason game with a sore neck. We break down the fantasy implications.

Andre Roberts returned to practice Monday for the Arizona Cardinals, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Roberts reportedly missed Friday's preseason game against the Oakland Raiders with a sore neck. It appears he will be fine going forward barring an unforeseen setback.

Analysis: Roberts is still listed as the No. 2 wideout on the depth chart behind Larry Fitzgerald, and ahead of Early Doucet and rookie Michael Floyd. Take that for what you will, but the Cardinals didn't draft Floyd at No. 13 overall in the 2012 NFL Draft simply to sit on the bench. Roberts put up pedestrian numbers last season--51 catches, 586 yards, two touchdowns--with much less competition for targets. Unless injuries hit the roster making Roberts a more viable option, he is probably better left to the waiver wire in 10-team standard leagues.
