Andre Roberts injury update: Probable for Rams game, still too risky in fantasy

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Andre Roberts is going to play against the Rams. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cardinals receiver Andre Roberts (quad) is listed as probable to take on the Rams on Sunday. He was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, but will suit up to play.

He was a bit of a surprise last season with the Cardinals and essentially duplicated Larry Fitzgerald's numbers. Roberts had 64 catches and five scores with the lackluster Cards last season and could improve with the new scheme. The 25-year-old wideout is expected to resume T.Y. Hilton's role in the Bruce Arians scheme and will see a lot of work in the slot.

Fantasy impact: There's a lot to like about Roberts, but he's going to be a very risky play. The Cardinals are using Michael Floyd in most of their two-wide sets, which means Roberts is not going to be on the field all that much. He's more of a sleeper in very deep leagues and Michael Floyd looks to be the better own for higher upside.
