Browns | Robert Griffin III decent in finale

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 14:52:24 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III threw for 232 yards and had two touchdowns and an interception in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Whether the Browns go in another direction at quarterback remains to be seen. They are unlikely to send Terrelle Pryor back to QB because Pryor had over 1,000 receiving yards in 2016. Griffin could get another chance, unless the Browns select a QB in the draft and put him to use immediately.

Browns | RG3 has 50-50 chance to start in 2017

Sat, 31 Dec 2016 16:55:41 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III has roughly a 50 percent chance at returning as the starter for the team in 2017, according to ESPNCleveland's Tony Grossi.

Fantasy Tip: The upcoming draft lacks a top-flight prospect at the position, while the top free-agent quarterbacks figure to be players such as Tyrod Taylor and Mike Glennon. The Browns are reportedly interested in trading for New England Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo as well. It could be argued any or all the alternatives may be better than Griffin, who has shown next to nothing while also struggling to stay healthy yet again.

Browns | Robert Griffin on track to play

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 14:16:49 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will be the starting quarterback as long as he does not suffer a setback leading up to the game. He has struggled in the last two games and should be avoided in all leagues.

Browns | Robert Griffin likely will start

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 10:16:14 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) likely will start against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17 as long as he does not suffer a setback.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has not thrown for more than 200 yards in any of his three games since returning to the lineup and has zero passing touchdowns during that span. His running ability does help his fantasy value a bit, but he should be avoided in all leagues.

Browns | Robert Griffin III clears protocol

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 05:38:16 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) was cleared to return to practice Thursday, Dec. 29, by an independent neurologist.

Fantasy Tip: The Pittsburgh Steelers are resting their Big Three on offense, and they could wind up resting some defensive starters. RG III would be worth the flyer in DFS if he's cleared to start this week.

Browns | Robert Griffin III sitting out

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 09:43:55 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) remains out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: The Pittsburgh Steelers are a daunting matchup against the position the last five weeks. If RG III can't go, Cody Kessler will have his feet to the fire. Outside of two-quarterback leagues or a DFS flyer, Kessler has little to offer in fantasy.

Browns | Robert Griffin III unsure for Week 17

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 10:47:40 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) suffered a concussion Saturday, Dec. 24, against the San Diego Chargers. His status for the regular-season finale is not known.

Fantasy Tip: If Griffin is unable to make the start, the team will turn to Cody Kessler once again. This may be Kessler's audition for the regular job as well. Griffin hasn't been lighting up the board in his return, but the ball is in Cleveland's court regarding a return for 2017.

Browns | RG3 leaves win with concussion

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 14:07:33 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) left the Week 16 game against the San Diego Chargers due to concussion and he was unable to return.

Fantasy Tip: RG3 finished 17 for 25 with 164 yards, no touchdowns, no interceptions and 42 yards on six runs before departing. Even if he is able to return from yet another injury he isn't a very good fantasy option in Week 17.

Browns | Robert Griffin remains starter

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 13:55:33 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III will start again in Week 16. He will be on a short leash, however, with QB Cody Kessler ready to take over.

Fantasy Tip: Yes, Griffin is a dual-threat quarterback, but he's just not that good. He's much too risky of a play in the fantasy postseason. In fact, it's probably best to avoid any Browns at this point.

Browns | Robert Griffin finds end zone

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 12:58:17 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III went 17-for-28 for 196 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15. He also rushed for 48 yards and one touchdown on eight carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin may have had his best game of the season in Week 15 and probably will start the final two games as long as he is healthy. He will be facing the San Diego Chargers next week but should be avoided in all leagues.
