Redskins | Robert Griffin could return in eight weeks

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 14:11:47 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return around eight weeks after head coach Jon Gruden said Griffin will be in a cast for the next 10 days. After that, he'll likely spend four to six weeks rehabbing his dislocated left ankle. QB Kirk Cousins will continue to start in place of Griffin in the meantime.

Fantasy Tip: You can avoid Griffin at FantasyScore for a while, and he may not be of much use when he returns, either. Meanwhile, Cousins ($7,600) is an attractive option against the Philadelphia Eagles if you're willing to pass up some of the bigger names at quarterback.

Redskins | Robert Griffin will wear cast

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:50:43 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will wear a cast on his dislocated ankle for 10 days and then will be re-evaluated after the cast is taken off.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will be sidelined several weeks because of his injury, so owners will need to look elsewhere for a starting quarterback. Kirk Cousins could be a waiver wire option for desperate owners.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins better suited for offense?

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 14:09:44 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has the skill set suited for what head coach Jay Gruden wants to do with the offense, according to a person with knowledge of Gruden's thinking. Gruden thinks Cousins can succeed in the offense better than QB Robert Griffin III (ankle), but Gruden understood it would have been impossible to make a quarterback change without Griffin being injured. Gruden was having a hard time getting Griffin to grasp the drop-back passing system the last few months.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins looked good replacing Griffin, going 22-for-33 for 250 yards and two touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has another nice matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3, and he might be worth a play in FantasyScore with what will likely be a bargain price.

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 12:11:49 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will not be placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news, obviously, but Griffin is still expected to miss an extended period of time. Kirk Cousins is a viable replacement in his stead.

Redskins | No fractures for Robert Griffin

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 09:53:30 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) isn't dealing with a fractured ankle, according to an MRI exam, and he doesn't think surgery is necessary. The best-case scenario for Griffin to recover from the injury is six to eight weeks, according to several surgeons.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin may not have to miss the rest of the season, but there's a good chance he won't be the same when he returns. Kirk Cousins will take over and isn't a bad option as a backup QB for fantasy if you're in need.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin could potentially be out for the season. Kirk Cousins will be a hot property off the waiver wire in weekly fantasy leagues, and he could be a nice value in Week 3 for FantasyScore owners against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Redskins | Robert Griffin carted off

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 10:28:31 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was carted off the field after suffering an ankle injury during the team's Week 2 game, according to Scott Hanson on NFL RedZone. Griffin did not appear to be touched when he suffered the injury.

Fantasy Tip: It does not appear like Griffin will be able to return to this game, and could miss more time depending on the injury. Owners will need to keep an eye out for the severity of the injury in the next day or two.

Redskins | Robert Griffin struggles in opener

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 05:08:42 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III struggled to move the offense down the field in the team's Week 1 loss to the Houston Texans Sunday, Sept. 7, and he didn't show any explosive running plays, either. He finished the day going 29-for-37 for 267 yards and a lost fumble, and he looked uncomfortable and unsure of himself. The Texans forced the Redskins to go on long, sustained drives, instead of allowing them to beat them with big plays. Griffin completed all eight passes to WR DeSean Jackson, but he averaged just 2.4 yards per catch.

Fantasy Tip: It was only one game, but as Keim mentions, other teams may very well follow suit with the Texans' game plan against Griffin and the offense. With a new offensive game plan in Washington, until we see Griffin become comfortable in the pocket, he may be a risky start in FantasyScore.
