Texans' Andre Roberts: Signs on with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts is signing a two-year contract with the Texans, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The contract reportedly is worth up to $5.95 million, though some of that may be in unlikely-to-be-earned incentives. Roberts primarily has served as a return specialist throughout the second half of his career, reaching the Pro Bowl three straight seasons from 2018 to 2020. It's an odd luxury signing for a team that otherwise seems to be rebuilding, unless the team for some reason thinks Roberts can reemerge as a receiving threat in his age-33 campaign.

Bills' Andre Roberts: Ready for primetime
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (back) practiced fully Saturday after being limited in this week's other practice and does not have an injury designation for Monday's game at New England.

The elite return man will resume his normal kickoff and punt return duties in the Monday Night Football matchup. Roberts leads the NFL by a good margin with 1,173 total return yards this season.

Bills' Andre Roberts: Working through back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts, who exited the Week 15 win over the Broncos with a back injury, was listed as a limited participant on Thursday's practice report.

Roberts has proven time after time that he's one of the league's best return men, so the Bills would love to have him back as close to full health as possible as they try to sweep the season series against the Patriots on Monday for the first time since 1999.

Bills' Andre Roberts: Cleared to play in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (Achilles) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against Pittsburgh.

Roberts upgraded to a full practice Friday after a pair of limited sessions, clearing him to suit up. He has just two catches this season, but Roberts' value comes primarily as a return man on special teams, as he's earned Pro Bowl honors in that role in each of the previous two campaigns.

Bills' Andre Roberts: Limited second straight day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts was limited for the second consecutive day Thursday due to an Achilles injury.

Coach Sean McDermott tends to take it easy on his veterans, especially this time of year, so while Roberts' injury is something to keep an eye on, we're optimistic about him playing in such a big upcoming matchup this week when the Bills take on the Steelers.

Bills' Andre Roberts: Limited with Achilles injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (Achilles) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.

This is the first mention of an Achilles injury for Roberts. The veteran return specialist's practice participation will be worth monitoring ahead of Sunday's high-profile matchup with the Steelers, but there's little to suggest that his status for the game is in danger at this point.

Bills' Andre Roberts: Kick return guru
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts returned four kickoffs for 111 yards and three punts for 26 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

The game got fairly close in the second half, so Roberts' return yardage became a big difference maker in the contest. While he barely contributes on offense -- he has just two catches on three targets all season -- Roberts leads the league with 909 return yards and is about as good as it gets if your league uses those categories. Roberts led the league in 2018 with 1,498 total return yards and was second in 2019 with 887.

Bills' Andre Roberts: Ready to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (ankle) is active for Tuesday's game versus the Titans.

Roberts was limited during Saturday's session and has proven he's healthy enough to play in the rare Tuesday outing. The veteran receiver could enjoy some extra reps on offense with John Brown (knee) sitting out, but he'll mainly work as a kick and punt returner.

Bills' Andre Roberts: Questionable for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (ankle) was a limited participant for Saturday's walkthrough practice and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game in Tennessee, the Bills official site reports.

Roberts doesn't see much action on offense, but he's one of the best return men in the league and consistently puts the Bills' suddenly high-powered offense in good field position, so his presence is important toward the team's chances of starting out 5-0.

October 7, 2020 04:08 PM
Bills' Andre Roberts: DNP to start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Roberts appears to have suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Raiders, during which he caught his first target of the season for six yards. If the veteran special-teams ace were forced to miss any time, Isaiah McKenzie would stand to take over as Buffalo's top return man.

Bills' Andre Roberts: Major return threat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts returned five punts for 69 yards and one kickoff for 31 yards during Sunday's win over the Jets.

The veteran only saw two plays on offense and seems to be the No. 6 receiver, but he's also the top guy on both return squads and should be among the league leaders all season. Roberts accrued 664 kickoff return yards in 2019, fourth in the league, and he did so in just 13 games played. His 223 punt return yards ranked eighth. The previous season with the Jets, Roberts led the NFL in kickoff return yards and was second in punt return yards. He's essentially the Saquon Barkley of special teams categories, especially with the Bills making an effort to beef up their special teams units this offseason.

September 6, 2020 07:00 PM
Bills' Andre Roberts: Back with Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buffalo re-signed Roberts on Sunday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

Roberts was cut in a move likely relating to the salary cap Saturday, but he now rejoins the Bills only a day later. He'll reprise his usual key role in the return game and as a depth receiver.

September 5, 2020 08:32 PM
Andre Roberts: Released by Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills released Roberts on Saturday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Although Roberts was released, the team plans to re-sign him Sunday and roster him the entire season. The move is likely related to the salary cap, but the Bills don't want to lose Roberts, who averaged 26.6 yards (fifth in the league) on 25 kickoff returns and 8.0 yards (10th) on 28 punt returns in 2019.

January 20, 2020 06:16 PM
Bills' Andre Roberts: Boosts special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts averaged 26.6 yards on 25 kickoff returns (fifth in the NFL among qualifiers) and 8.0 yards (10th in the NFL) on 28 punt returns this season in 13 games.

Roberts didn't do much in the passing game, catching just three of seven targets for 20 yards all season, but he remains one of the league's better return men and we imagine the Bills will be happy to have him back after he signed a two-year deal in March.

January 2, 2020 01:36 PM
Bills' Andre Roberts: Questionable for Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (foot) practiced on a limited basis for the third straight day Thursday and is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game in Houston.

The lean seems to be Roberts playing in the big game, where he won't add much to the offense but does have the ability to change the contest with his fantastic return abilities.

January 1, 2020 12:08 PM
Bills' Andre Roberts: Appears in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Roberts (foot) was able to practice on a limited basis Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Roberts said afterward that his injured foot held up well, so it looks like he could play in this weekend's playoff game in Houston. The veteran doesn't add much offensively (just three catches on seven targets all season), but he's one of the league's better return men, an area that could make a difference in what figures to be a tight game between two good-but-not-great teams.

December 31, 2019 11:56 AM
Bills' Andre Roberts: No practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (foot) is not participating in Tuesday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Roberts hasn't participated in practice since suffering a foot injury Week 16. He'll have two more chances to upgrade his activity ahead of Saturday's wild-card playoff round in Houston. Devin Singletary and Micah Hyde will be called upon to handle kick and punt return duties, respectively, if Roberts is forced to miss any more time.

December 27, 2019 04:00 PM
Bills' Andre Roberts: Ruled out for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Jets.

Roberts has missed three straight practices due to a foot injury sustained Week 16. The Bills would normally call upon Devin Singletary and Micah Hyde to handle kick and punt return duties, respectively, though with the No. 5 seed in the AFC all locked up, the team may just play it safe with those two key players and let others get some time returning kicks, such as Isaiah McKenzie on punts.

December 26, 2019 12:36 PM
Bills' Andre Roberts: Sidelined again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (foot) is not practicing Thursday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

Roberts has missed back-to-back practices due to a foot injury sustained Week 16. He's not trending in the right direction for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Jets. If Roberts were to miss any time, Devin Singletary and Micah Hyde would be called upon to field kick and punt returns, respectively.

December 25, 2019 04:04 PM
Bills' Andre Roberts: Projected as non-participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (foot) was projected as a non-participant in the team's injury report Wednesday.

Roberts sustained a previously unspecified injury in the team's Week 16 loss to the Patriots. The first practice report of the week indicates that he suffered a foot injury, and his projected non-participation isn't a positive sign for his availability Sunday against the Jets.
