Redskins | 'Skins leave door open for QB change?

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 11:42:47 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was named the starter for Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Nov. 24, by head coach Jay Gruden, but he left open some wiggle room to make a change during the week. "It's Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock, and right now we have every intent for Robert, but we'll look at the tape and make our evaluations here shortly," Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has been pretty awful the last several weeks, and his mechanics are mostly to blame. At $5,600 (11.2% of cap), Griffin isn't terribly expensive for your daily lineups, but it's hard to trust him these days, especially when a benching could come very soon if he continues to struggle.

Redskins | Robert Griffin will start in Week 13

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 12:23:10 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will start Sunday, Nov. 30, against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has been a huge disappointment this year both in real life and in fantasy football. He's not worth starting until he gets back on track.

Redskins | Clock ticking on Robert Griffin III

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 07:07:16 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's point of emphasis is to get the ball out quickly Sunday, Nov. 23. Head coach Jay Gruden has dumbed down the offense to allow quick throws to playmakers and make for easy reads. The landscape within the organization has changed for Griffin, though. Gruden has the authority to bench Griffin, and it could happen if he doesn't play well enough. Things behind the scenes, like special rules allowing Griffin's family to have total access to the facility, has changed as well.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin ($5,600; 11.2% of your cap) isn't worth the start this weekend as there are much more favorable options on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Robert Griffin critiqued by coach

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 12:21:44 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III had fundamental flaws and below average footwork Sunday, Nov. 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if this is more than just postgame tension. Griffin has struggled since returning from injury, but there haven't been any rumblings of Kirk Cousins taking back the starting job. Griffin has a tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12. If possible, look elsewhere at the quarterback position.

Redskins | Robert Griffin should play

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 11:41:52 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 14, and is listed as probable for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin should be able to start his second straight game after coming back from his ankle injury. Griffin has a price of $5,900 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to use a bit more money for a better option at the position.

Redskins | Robert Griffin practices fully

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 13:21:07 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has been underwhelming since his return from a dislocated ankle. The Redskins figure to lean heavily on their running game (Alfred Morris) this week, but Griffin could at least provide a nice bye-week filler at $5,900 on FantasyScore, though you can find better value elsewhere.

Redskins | Robert Griffin a full go

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 13:44:20 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: The bye week came at a perfect time for Griffin ($5,900) and the Redskins. He was able to heal up some more and received some valuable time to put in extra repetitions in the offense. Griffin is a perfect under-the-radar option for FantasyScore lineups against a bad Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense.

Redskins | Robert Griffin must prove more

Tue, 04 Nov 2014 13:04:32 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III returned to action in Week 9, but head coach Jay Gruden said he must continue to prove that he's the team's starting quarterback. "You start out with Robert, you give him all the reps in training camp and then he hurts his ankle and misses five or six weeks," Gruden said. "We get a look at Kirk (Cousins). We get a good look at Colt (McCoy) and now it's back to Robert. So, the jury is still out on that position. But we feel good about Robert's progress so far." Gruden indicated that Griffin's performance over the rest of the season will go a long way in determining if he's the quarterback of the future in Washington. Gruden would like to see Griffin get rid of the ball quicker; he was sacked five times in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin wasn't terrible, but he wasn't great, either, in his return. The good news is that he moved around well and didn't have any setbacks. Griffin can't be trusted yet as a must-start in fantasy football, but he can be a nice matchup play down the stretch.

Redskins | RG III decision came from above

Sun, 02 Nov 2014 07:36:54 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is starting Sunday, Nov. 2, in a decision that was made by management above head coach Jay Gruden. However, an executive told ESPN's Adam Schefter "that is laughable."

Fantasy Tip: Give Griffin a week to knock the rust off before considering him in most fantasy formats.

Redskins | Robert Griffin probable

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 14:52:22 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) practiced in full for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: It's tempting to want to start Griffin in the matchup against the Vikes. But remember that it's Griffin's first start back, and he's likely to be shaking off some rust in this one. Hold off and look to start him after the team's Week 10 bye.
