Lions' Michael Roberts: Quiet outside of red zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (shoulder) finished the 2018 season with nine catches for 100 yards and three touchdowns on 20 targets across eight games.

The 2017 fourth-round pick ranked third on the Lions with seven rod-zone targets, converting three of those into scores. He otherwise had little impact, with knee and shoulder injuries costing him eight games and eventually landing him on injured reserve after Week 14. Fellow tight ends Levine Toilolo and Luke Willson (concussion) are both scheduled to become unrestricted free agents in the offseason, but there's no guarantee the situation helps Roberts, who looks like a questionable fit under run-first offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. It's even possible Roberts will enter training camp on the roster bubble.

Lions' Michael Roberts: Shuttered for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions placed Roberts (shoulder) on injured reserve Tuesday.

It hadn't been revealed that Roberts got hurt in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Cardinals, but the lingering shoulder issue might have explained why he played only nine snaps, his fewest since Week 2. Before suiting up Sunday, Roberts' shoulder injury had prevented him from playing in two of the Lions' last three games. He'll now get an early start on the offseason and will aim to get his health in order ahead of the 2019 campaign, during which he could take on a more prominent role in Detroit's passing attack.

Lions' Michael Roberts: No catches in desert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts was targeted twice but did not record a reception during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona.

Both Roberts and Luke Willson took a backseat to Levine Toilolo, who logged 80 percent of the offensive snaps and was the only tight end on the team to catch a pass. Roberts has now logged just five receptions for 37 yards over his last five games since busting out against Miami for 48 yards and two scores in Week 7.

Lions' Michael Roberts: Available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday at Arizona, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Since injuring his shoulder Week 10, Roberts has missed two of three games. In his sole appearance Week 12 against the Bears, he split tight end reps with Levine Toilolo and Luke Willson, catching three of his six targets for 16 yards. With the trio healthy, it'll be difficult for one of them to emerge from the pack.

Lions' Michael Roberts: Questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Roberts sandwiched limited practices Wednesday and Friday around a full session Thursday, with his involvement throughout the week likely pointing to him suiting up Sunday. Though Luke Willson sits atop the depth chart at tight end, Roberts has been active in the passing game as a reserve, drawing 17 targets over his last five appearances.
