Redskins | Robert Griffin's Week 1 availability not decided

Whether or not Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (knee) will play in Week 1 of the regular season has not yet been decided, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Griffin has said there is "no doubt" he will play, but the source says it is "premature" to talk about Griffin playing in the opener until he is cleared.

Fantasy Tip: There have been no setbacks, and Griffin wants to play, and he reportedly is on target to play. If Griffin cannot go against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1, Kirk Cousins would draw the start. Griffin remains a quality fantasy option on draft day, but be ready to have plenty of depth at the quarterback position just in case.
