Browns | Robert Griffin III to help ground game?

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 20:37:33 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III will "add spice" to the running game, running backs coach Kirby Wilson said Friday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: After a solid start to the year, Isaiah Crowell hasn't run for more than 44 yards in each of his last five games. Don't expect much of a change with Griffin under center, and Crowell remains a risky flex play in Week 14.

Browns | RG3 coming off injured reserve

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 11:08:53 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III was activated off the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns hope to get a four-game look at RG3 before deciding what direction to go this offseason. Given the current state of things in Cleveland, don't expect it to go well. He can ignored in fantasy leagues.

Browns | Robert Griffin III to start Week 14

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 07:56:36 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) was named the starter for Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals have been decent against the QB position over the last five weeks. This wouldn't be the matchup to start RG III after a lengthy layoff.

Browns | Robert Griffin on track to start

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 12:51:40 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) likely will be the starting quarterback in Week 14 as long as he does not suffer a setback during practice this week, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has not played since Week 1 because of the injury, so it is not known how much he will be asked to do during the game. He dealt with a number of injuries during his career and should not be trusted by fantasy owners. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Browns | 'All signs point' to RG3 starting

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 09:02:41 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) is likely to get at least one more chance to prove he can be the team's quarterback of the future and "all signs point" to it happening over the final month of the season, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

Fantasy Tip: To say the quarterback position in Cleveland has been a revolving door would be an understatement. Griffin should get his shot provided he is fully healthy, but he is an injury-prone player who will be operating behind a porous offensive line and a team whose only motivation right now might be to avoid going winless. He can avoided in fantasy.

Browns | Robert Griffin will get extended look

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 17:03:42 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) will keep the starting job for the remainder of the season "once he gets back in there," according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense, as the Browns really haven't been able to truly evaluate their big offseason acquisition and whether or not he has a future in Cleveland. Plus, the team really isn't going anywhere with Josh McCown under center, while rookie Cody Kessler (concussion) is still out for the foreseeable future. Griffin has the skillset to pull off a Colin Kaepernick-like resurgence, so he is worth monitoring.

Browns | Robert Griffin cleared for contact

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 08:43:09 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been cleared for contact Tuesday, Nov. 29. He will practice during the bye week with QB Cody Kessler (concussion) and QB Josh McCown, and the team will decide on a starter.

Fantasy Tip: Whomever comes out the starter has minimal fantasy appeal. They have a so-so matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals next week, but their upside isn't high enough to warrant a start.

Browns | Cleveland hopes Robert Griffin can return

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 08:16:51 -0800

The Cleveland Browns are hoping QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) can start again this season once he is cleared to play, according to sources. Griffin may stay on the sidelines if QB Cody Kessler plays well in multiple games.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has returned to practice and could start in the next few weeks if Kessler does not play well. Owners should avoid the Browns quarterback no matter which one starts.

Browns | Robert Griffin III returns to practice

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 07:22:01 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 23, and has returned to practice.

Fantasy Tip: RG III would only have value in leagues that play two quarterbacks. However, with them activating him, you'd have to think they would play him when he's fit to return.

Browns | Robert Griffin to practice, not play

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 21:04:33 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) will return to practice this week but has not been cleared for contact or game action, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: That was the expectation last week, and Cody Kessler landing in the concussion protocol has not changed that. RG3 could still come back before the season ends, but there's no incentive to rush him and no fantasy value if/when he returns this season. Josh McCown will start in Week 12.
