Redskins | Not limiting Robert Griffin

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said the team hasn't used much of their read zone offense this year because they have fallen behind quickly in the first half in their first two games of the season. QB Robert Griffin III isn't being limited after having offseason knee surgery. The team has run the zone read option five times in two games, with RB Alfred Morris running it each time. Griffin has nine runs on the year, scrambling six times. "If teams will give us the QB runs then we'll take it," Griffin said. "If they're not giving it to us, then we can't just run those plays." Griffin has seen that teams are taking away the zone read option by positioning their ends and safeties differently than a year ago.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins are off to a slow start offensively, and although Griffin has looked rusty, he's been healthy. Expect him to shake off the rust, although we don't expect him to run nearly as much as a season ago. This should bode well for the team's receivers.
