Redskins | Competition not going away for RGIII

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 16:28:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will be the first-team quarterback during offseason workouts, according to head Jay Gruden, but Gruden also said he expects QB Kirk Cousins and QB Colt McCoy to be on the roster when the regular season begins.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has the most upside among the three, but his injury history and the lack of support he seems to have received from the coaching staff at times makes him a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option. He is worth taking a chance on in drafts but only after you have secured a more reliable starting quarterback.

Redskins | Robert Griffin's option to be picked up?

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 13:56:17 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's option must be picked up by May 3. General manager Scot McCloughan said the team has had discussions about Griffin's option and that they are still talking it through.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has had trouble staying healthy so far in his young career, so it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see Griffin be released. When healthy, however, Griffin is a tremendous dual-threat fantasy quarterback. Stay tuned leading up to the May 3 deadline.

Redskins | Washington willing to draft QB early

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 13:30:43 -0700

Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan said that the team will go with the best player available in the 2015 NFL Draft with the No. 5 overall pick, which means that they could take a quarterback in that spot. McCloughan could be compelled to take Oregon QB Marcus Mariota if he's available at No. 5, even after the team said QB Robert Griffin III was the team's starter a month ago. McCloughan doesn't think anyone will be handed a job, and they'll have to compete to win a spot.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is the team's starting quarterback right now, but he'll have to earn it in training camp this summer, and that task will become tougher if Mariota is on the roster in July. If Griffin indeed winds up being the starter in Week 1, he'll have to prove himself in the fantasy landscape as well. Consider him a QB2 with upside for more if he stays healthy.

Redskins | GM remains high on Robert Griffin

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 11:31:53 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will enter the 2015 season as the team's starting quarterback, and general manager Bruce Allen thinks Griffin's ceiling in the NFL remains high. Griffin missed five games last year with a dislocated ankle, and Allen said Griffin must stay healthy in order to realize his potential. "There's never been a question about him watching film," Allen said. "He is motivated. He's a (25-year-old) man who is still growing and learning the NFL game. We've seen him, a couple years ago, play at the highest of highs. Maybe it spoiled us a little bit to expect that all the time."

Fantasy Tip: Aside from his tantalizing rookie campaign, Griffin has been a huge disappointment, and injuries have surely played their part. Heading into 2015, as Allen notes, being injury-free is the most important. Most fantasy drafters have forgotten about Griffin's rookie season at this point and are more focused on his injury risks. That'll make him a discount on draft day. Select him as a QB2 risk-reward with plenty of upside left.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to start

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 10:16:43 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will go into the season as the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should probably not count on Griffin as their starting quarterback heading into next season, but he probably should be considered as a No. 2 quarterback option on draft day. He also could have good value in FantasyScore depending on the price and matchup.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins in the mix for Redskins?

Wed, 11 Feb 2015 17:30:34 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins should have the opportunity to battle Redskins QB Robert Griffin III for the team's starting quarterback position, in the opinion of The Washington Post's Mike Jones. Jones noted Cousins displayed better feel in the pocket than Griffin but also acknowledged that Cousins was unable to avoid turnovers.

Fantasy Tip: Redskins head coach Jay Gruden was able to coax positive fantasy contributions out of all of the team's quarterbacks at one point or another during the 2014 season. If Cousins is able to unseat Griffin as the team's starter, he would have QB2 value.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to receive another chance

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 14:43:18 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III likely will be given another chance to succeed, because teams should not give up on young quarterbacks, according to general manager Scot McCloughan. McCoughlan said Griffin needs to be surrounded by a strong running attack and a more reliable offensive line.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Griffin will be the leading candidate for the starting quarterback entering training camp next season. Griffin probably should not be considered as a starting quarterback in drafts next season but could be a No. 2 quarterback.

Redskins | Jay Gruden does not commit to QB

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 17:58:06 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and the rest of the team's quarterbacks will be evaluated methodically during the offseason before a decision on a starter for the 2015 season is made, head coach Jay Gruden said Monday, Dec. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Gruden wasn't around when Griffin was drafted, but given how much the franchise gave up in order to acquire Griffin, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him earn another shot at the starting gig. He is at least worth a speculative add as a QB2 in drafts next year just in case he recaptures the form he showed in his rookie year.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins itching for opportunity

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 08:49:33 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said it would be tough to return to the team in 2015 if QB Robert Griffin III was given the starting job. Cousins said he would talk to the front office.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins would be a mid-to-low QB2 if he became a starting quarterback with Washington or elsewhere. Griffin has more upside because of the added running element, but he's in the same boat in traditional leagues.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III expected to play

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 13:17:15 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 26, and is listed as probable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin should be able to play despite suffering the shoulder injury in Week 16. Griffin will be facing a tough Dallas Cowboys defense this week and likely is not the best option to use on FantasyScore.
