Redskins, Andre Roberts agree to terms

This looks like a good signing by the Redskins, who have struggled to find a consistent option opposite Pierre Garcon. Roberts lost playing time in 2013 to an emerging Michael Floyd, but was the #39 WR in standard (and #34 in PPR) in 2012 while playing starter's snaps. New HC Jay Gruden has a history of airing it out, so the entire Washington passing game should get a boost. Another top 40 season is possible for the 26 year-old Roberts, assuming he starts.

Arians: Michael Floyd is 'starting to reach his potential'
Monday, February 24, 2014, 12:03pm
Cardinals WR Michael Floyd is coming off his first 1,000-yard season. But it wasn’t the yards or catches that impressed Arians the most, it was the injuries Floyd played through – most notably the shoulder problem that the wideout had when he went off for a career-high 193 yards in Jacksonville.
“I think Michael is starting to reach his potential,” Arians said. “He still needs to be more consistent each week. He played through injuries for the first time which is a huge step for a young player to play through injuries. A lot of times they just sit themselves down. He wanted to win, he wanted to help us win. I thought he made great strides. This year, can he do it again?”
Floyd broke out in his second season with a 66 catches for 1,054 yards and five TDs, gaining at least 90 yards and/or finding the endzone in seven of his last 11 games. He should continue to progress as he enters his third year in the league.

The Cards are banged up heading into a game with Seattle in Week 16. Larry Fitzgerald suffered a concussion, Michael Floyd was questionable leading up to Week 15 and now RB Andre Ellington has a hip injury that he says is fine. Palmer will be a risky play as anything other than an average QB2 this week in a tough matchup.
