Redskins | Robert Griffin III praises Alfred Morris

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 11:07:41 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III thinks RB Alfred Morris is the biggest weapon on the team's offense. "I think everyone would lean towards DeSean or Pierre or Jordan Reed," Griffin III said when asked who the biggest weapon in the Redskins' offense is. "I think it's Alfred. With him, defenses have to make a decision whether to puts guys in the box to stop him or leave the box light and allow Alfred to go between the tackles and lure in the safeties. I think it will be interesting to see what defenses do against him."

Fantasy Tip: There is every reason to believe that Morris will benefit from the addition of DeSean Jackson to the offense and a healthy Robert Griffin III. Morris should return to top form in 2014.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III to work with Terry Shea

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 07:45:34 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will work with quarterbacks coach Terry Shea next week to tune up before training camp. Griffin worked with Shea earlier in the offseason. Shea focused hard on Griffin's fundamentals, including narrowing his base, getting his feet to turn with his body in the pocket and raising where Griffin held the ball - at times last year he held it too low, leading to a wind-up throw.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin appears to be working hard this offseason to have a bounce-back season.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III back in 2012 form

Sat, 05 Jul 2014 19:11:19 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III looks more explosive this season, according to offensive coordinator Sean McVay. McVay also said he expects Griffin to return to his 2012 form now that he is playing without a knee brace. "I don't think there's any question: he looks explosive," McVay said. "He looks like he is exactly what he was in the 2012 season. I think people underestimate when you have a brace on your knee how much that truly restricts you... So I think being able to take that off, he looks extremely explosive."

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 11:24:44 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III praised new head coach Jay Gruden and general manager Bruce Allen for putting the right people in the locker room in 2014. "What I think is going to help us most this year is that everybody in that building is going to be for us being successful and for us winning," Griffin said. "There are no ulterior motives. That will be great. Jay has been phenomenal. (General manager) Bruce Allen has done great job of getting the right guys in that locker room. I tip my hat to them. They have given us everything we need to be successful. We're going to work our butts off for them."

Redskins | Robert Griffin III wants to maximize each moment

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 11:23:50 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III wants to maximize each moment he has with his teammates in 2014, something he missed out on last offseason as he worked his way back from injury. "That's what people don't understand," Griffin said. "Being around my teammates, being able to work with them, condition with them and lift with them, just the locker room talk is all so important. It's important to me. "Last year, I didn't have an opportunity to do that, but I didn't take that mindset into the season and say, 'This is going to hurt me. This is going to hurt me.' I'm going keep playing the hand that's dealt to me. Last year, I had the rehab. This year, I don't have to do that. I'm going to take full advantage of that."

Fantasy Tip: It should only help Griffin to spend more time around his teammates the rest of the summer. Consider Griffin a low-end QB1 at this point.

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 11:12:40 -0700

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay said he was impressed with how QB Robert Griffin III picked up the offense this offseason and translating his knowledge to the field. "He did an excellent job above the neck," McVay said, "as far as absorbing the new system, some of the terminology. … He's done an excellent job translating his knowledge in the meeting room onto the field, recognizing some of those looks. Some of the audible situations we'll give him the opportunity to call things at the line. He's shown he's fully capable of doing it and that's what gives him a great chance to have success this year."

Redksins | Robert Griffin looking to improve pocket passing

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 11:25:07 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is ready to become more of a pocket passer, knowing it will be beneficial to his long-term success. New head coach Jay Gruden will implement more elements of a controlled passing game, as he did with the Cincinnati Bengals, including play-action, something Griffin has excelled in.

Fantasy Tip: While Griffin's running ability makes him a more valuable commodity, the risk of injury involved with that may not be worth it. However, Griffin staying in the pocket more should be an encouragement for those looking to draft him this offseason. For now, consider him a fringe QB1.

Redskins | Robert Griffin says offense coming together

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 17:45:59 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said the players have done a good job picking up the new offensive system but need more time to master the offense. "I think it is coming together nicely. The quarterback room is doing really well and we're ahead on a lot of things. But that's where we're supposed to be. We've got to have that mastery of the offense. But coming out here to the field … doing some talking at the line, getting some things under control and getting the looks that we need to be in, it's been good," Griffin said.

Redskins | Robert Griffin looking smooth

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 09:56:09 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III looks effortless in his dropbacks and throwing mechanics during organized team activities now that he isn't impeded by his knee brace.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a rough season that was set back by injuries, Griffin will have a full offseason to prepare, and it looks like it's already doing him good. He won't come cheaply in drafts, though, so be prepared to pay a hefty penny for his services as your QB1. It could be well worth the price, however.
