Andre Roberts injury update: Slot receiver ready to go vs. Detroit for fantasy

USA TODAY Sports

Andre Roberts' quad isn't much of an issue. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cardinals receiver Andre Roberts (quad) is listed as probable to face the Lions on Sunday. He was limited in practice on Wednesday, then was a full participant on Thursday and Friday.

He is going to play and will look to build off his big Week 1. Roberts put up 97 yards on his eight receptions and looks to have established a nice rapport with Carson Palmer. He operates in the slot most of the time and the Cardinals did have to pass a little to come back on the Rams.

Fantasy impact: Roberts could be in line for an even bigger role on Sunday. Larry Fitzgerald has a hamstring issue and he is expected to be a game-time call. The Lions don't have a strong secondary and could also put up some serious points, so the Cardinals may be inclined to sling the ball again. Palmer's yards per attempt in Bruce Arians' system suggests there could be some deep balls coming and Roberts might be able to clear 100 yards. He's a sneaky WR3 this week.
