Roberts was unable to find the end zone for the first time since Week 2 and has seen just six targets combined over the past two weeks. His fantasy value relies heavily on his ability to make plays in the red zone while fellow receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree continue to be the clear top-2 options for quarterback Derek Carr in the aerial attack. Roberts' next opportunity to score will come this Sunday against the Chiefs.
Roberts is converting his targets into catches at a clip of less than 50 percent throughout the first three weeks of the 2016 season, but two out of his seven receptions thus far have been scores. Fellow receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree continue to be quarterback Derek Carr's go-to weapons, leaving Roberts' value a bit limited when he doesn't find the end zone while he's yet to eclipse 30 receiving yards in a contest this year. He'll attempt to reverse that trend next week in Baltimore.
Roberts caught three passes for 25 yards on six targets Sunday against the Falcons.
Roberts actually beat out No. 2 receiver Michael Crabtree in targets during Week 2's loss, but he was only able to haul in half of those with his longest reception coming in at 14 yards. No. 4 receiver Andre Holmes scored a six-yard touchdown on his only reception, but saw 37 less offensive snaps than Roberts. With five receptions through two games so far this season, Roberts will look to add to that number next week against the Titans.
