|While the fantasy football world seems to have penciled in rookie 1st round pick Michael Floyd as the Cardinals starting wide receiver opposite Larry Fitzgerald, it appears that Arizonaís management and coaching staff failed to get that memo. Offseason reports indicate that Roberts will enter training camp in the starting lineup and that the coaching staff expects him and Early Doucet to be key cogs in the teamís passing attack in 2012. The teamís 2011 4th round pick, Roberts played little as a rookie but stepped into the starting lineup last season and played reasonably well, catching 51 passes for 586 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Considered a raw prospect coming out of The Citadel, Roberts has plenty of room for improvement but given the depth of the Cardinals receiving corps, his 2012 fantasy prospects arenít great. While a breakout season is possible, another 600-yard, 3-4 touchdown performance seems more likely. Keep your eye on Roberts in the preseason.
|Redskins, DeSean Jackson agree -- Tue Apr 1 11:15 pm --|
|Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has agreed with the Washington Redskins. Jackson will join Washington on a three-year deal, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The Redskins will pair him with a first-time head coach in Jay Gruden. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: With Jackson and Andre Roberts in the mix, the biggest fantasy winner has to be Robert Griffin III who now has legitimate play-makers at all three receiver spots and one of the best young receiving tight ends in Jordan Reed. With Pierre Garcon on the opposite side, Jackson will be hard-pressed to duplicate his WR1 stats from a year ago (82 rec, 1332 yds, 9 TDs). Both players see their fantasy value deflate a little with this acquisition.
|Redskins keep WR Santana Moss -- Tue Mar 11 4:00 pm --|
|Wide receiver Santana Moss, right guard Shawn Lauvao and inside linebacker Adam Hayward each agreed to contracts with the Redskins in the minutes following the 4 p.m. start to the new league year. Moss, who spent the last nine seasons with the Redskins, agreed to a one-year contract to return to the team. (Washington Times)|
FF Today's Take: Moss caught 42 passes for 452 yards and two touchdowns out of the slot last season. He'll assume that role again in 2014. Andre Roberts (ARI) is rumored to be close to a free agent deal with the Redskins
