Redskins | Not sure if Robert Griffin will be ready for Week 1

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said he is not sure if QB Robert Griffin III (knee) will be ready for Week 1. He said Griffin will not return to the lineup until he is completely healthy. Shanahan indicated QB Kirk Cousins will receive all of the reps during offseason workouts but that Griffin will be watching film and workouts to get in mental reps.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin's recovery will be one of the biggest stories during the offseason and training camp. Griffin is definitely a starting quarterback in all fantasy formats, but owners that want Griffin will have to take a high-end No. 2 quarterback that they can use in case Griffin misses at least one regular season game. Cousins could be a short-term starter in deep leagues if Griffin misses some time but it will depend on the matchup.
