Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said QB Robert Griffin III won't play at all in the final three regular season games even if another QB is injured.

Despite being benched for the final three regular season games, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will remain the starting quarterback heading into the 2014 season. "It's ridiculous to act like this is a quarterback competition," offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said. "Robert just had one of the best years as a rookie in NFL history. He didn't have that this year. We didn't do that again this year. To give up on him like that and say play someone else, that's fun for people to talk about but that hasn't entered my brain and it's not a possibility or option."
Fantasy Tip: You can obviously dump Griffin in single-year leagues, but hold onto him in keeper formats. Redskins coaches cite a lack of a full offseason for RG3's struggles this season. A bounce-back year could be in store in 2014.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan continues to say that owner Daniel Snyder and general manager Bruce Allen were "100 percent" on board with his decision to shut down QB Robert Griffin III for the rest of the season. The three men decided collectively that it would be the best for the team if QB Kirk Cousins played out the season to give Griffin a chance to go into the offseason healthy. "The chance of coming back (from another injury)," Shanahan added, "would be very, very tough."

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said QB Robert Griffin III is still the team's franchise quarterback even though he is starting Week 15.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said that he's been shut down for the remainder of the season.
Fantasy Tip: You can obviously drop RG3 in all single-year formats. Kirk Cousins will see action in the final three games, and he is a sleeper one-week play against a struggling Atlanta Falcons defense in Week 15.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 09:31:27 -0800
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III did not receive any snaps during the media-access portion of practice Wednesday, Dec. 11. QB Kirk Cousins received the first snaps during practice and was followed by QB Rex Grossman.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 07:43:48 -0800
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will be inactive in Week 15. QB Rex Grossman will be the backup quarterback.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 06:14:02 -0800
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will start over QB Robert Griffin III against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15.
Fantasy Tip: Atlanta is one of the worst teams against the pass in 2013, and Cousins has a great opportunity to shine this week. Robert Griffin III owners can cut bait at this point, except maybe in dynasty leagues. Cousins is a decent option for a one-week play. However, it's hard to suggest starting such an unknown in your fantasy playoffs with a lot of conviction.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 05:24:32 -0800
The feeling inside the Washington Redskins' facility is that head coach Mike Shanahan will star QB Kirk Cousins in Week 15 unless QB Robert Griffin III can talk him out of it.
Tue, 10 Dec 2013 16:06:30 -0800
Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has yet to name a starting quarterback between QBs Robert Griffin III or Kirk Cousins for Week 15 against the Atlanta Falcons. Shanahan is expected to make his decision Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Fantasy Tip: The longer we wait for a decision, the more likely it seems that Cousins will get the nod. If you've been starting Griffin in your league, it's time to look for a replacement just in case.
