Roberts nabbed four of six targets for 34 yards in Sunday's preseason win over the Colts

Roberts was Detroit's most targeted option in a game predominantly played by the second- and third-team units. Roberts has reportedly taken some lumps in training camp, but the opportunity is there for him to step up as a red-zone threat for the Lions. Eric Ebron has yet to live up to his first-round billing, tallying just seven scores in three seasons. Operating in Toledo's open attack, the big-bodied Roberts nabbed a whopping 16 touchdowns during his senior season and could find an early niche near the goal line.
