Fantasy Tip Of The Day From TheHuddle.com

ANDRE ROBERTS COULD BE YOUR LATE ROUND LEGEND

By Kevin Ratterree

If Arizona’s current depth chart holds up, second-year WR Andre Roberts will start opposite Larry Fitzgerald.

It’s a position that’s been productive for fantasy in previous years, with Anquan Boldin and Steve Breaston contributing solid numbers. Can Roberts be the next guy to benefit from the single coverage he’ll draw while lining up on the opposite side of the field from Fitzgerald?

Absolutely.

Roberts ended the 2010 campaign with a bang after most fantasy players had checked out. He caught nine passes in the final two games, including five receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys in Week 16.

Roberts is a Hines Ward-type receiver who will work the short and intermediate routes. The difference is once Roberts gets his hands on the ball, he has the ability break tackles and the speed to take it to the house.

Improved QB play from Kevin Kolb will return the Cardinals passing offense to respectability and turn Roberts into a household fantasy name.
