Andre Roberts is probable with an ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Andre Roberts (ankle) was limited on practice on Thursday before he put in a full one for Friday. The Cardinals list him as probable when the Seahawks come to town for their Week 1 matchup.

Analysis: Roberts had ample opportunity to come on last year in his season-long bout with Early Doucet. Unfortunately for him, Arizona invested their first-round pick on Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd. Floyd had one of the most impressive scores of the preaseason with a one-handed catch in double coverage against Denver. He may have put the kibosh on Roberts' fantasy value and Roberts certainly won't be worth a start in any league against arguably the most talented secondary in the league. Floyd is a decent player to stash and could be a spot-start guy in a month or two.
