Redskins | Robert Griffin perfect Friday

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:06:37 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III did not throw an incompletion during team drills Friday, July 31. Griffin appears to be going through his progressions and throwing to secondary targets during some the snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has struggled the last few seasons and is looking to improve his play this season. Owners should consider Griffin as a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues this season and only used against favorable matchups.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III shaky Thursday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 19:14:28 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was inconsistent during full-team workouts Thursday, July 30, throwing high to his targets at times.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is facing a make-or-break season, and while there is always a chance he could recapture the magic he showed as a rookie, drafting him as more than a mid-level QB2 is asking for disappointment.

Redskins | HC excited about Robert Griffin

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 15:30:51 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's progress this offseason has head coach Jay Gruden excited. Gruden said Griffin improved during organized team activities, adding that the more comfortable Griffin becomes with the terminology and reads, the more he'll keep improving. Gruden also said that Griffin has taken over as a leader, but that the team and coaching staff still need to be patient with him.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin did not excel in his first season in Gruden's system. That was followed by the dislocated ankle. If Griffin can combine good health with the improvements he's made on the field, he could have a nice rebound this season. One should temper expectations, however, and take Griffin as a mid-range to low-end QB2.

Redskins | Robert Griffin critiqued

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:29:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's decision-making, fundamentals, footwork and his inability to find open receivers are all reasons why Griffin isn't good enough to be successful in the NFL, in the opinion of ESPN NFL analyst Mark Brunell.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has certainly been a disappointment since taking the league by storm in his rookie season. He has yet to play a full season in his three years in the NFL, and his games played have decreased every year, from 15 to 13 to 9 since 2012. As Brunell also said, Griffin does have the skill set to succeed, but he's too risky to draft as a QB1.

Redskins | Robert Griffin feeling better

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 15:27:01 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said he's feeling better than he's felt in a while. "I just think we're all feeling better about what we're doing," Griffin said. "We know a lot more than last year. And for me as a player, you always have to be confident. Sometimes you have to throw a little swag on it."

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has had a positive offseason, and head coach Jay Gruden has even taken notice with his development. The big question for Griffin is can he stay healthy? He's coming off a season in which he suffered a dislocated ankle. In Griffin's three-year career so far, he hasn't played in all 16 games even once. The talent is there, and he has more value because of his ability to run the football, but he's too risky to be taken as a starting fantasy quarterback.

Redskins | RG3 making progress

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 18:09:04 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has been impressing head coach Jay Gruden this offseason. "The more he plays, the more success he has, the more confidence he's going to build up as a player and the more confident this whole offense is going to be with him under center," Gruden said of Griffin. "That comes with time. I don't think anybody lacks confidence with him at quarterback. I think the transition for him into a new season last season was a little bit rocky for all of us. When you have the same system going in for Year 2, I think he's going to get better," said Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: RG3 will likely slide to the bottom of 2015 fantasy drafts, but if he can stay healthy there is tremendous upside to be had. Owners who miss out on a top-10 quarterback should take Griffin as their No. 2, as he still has the potential to be an elite fantasy asset.

Redskins | Robert Griffin's option was obvious choice

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 11:22:26 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's fifth-year option being picked up was the obvious decision, according to team president Bruce Allen. "We know his talent. It really was a no-brainer," Allen said. "I think if you asked us six months before it would have been the same decision."

Fantasy Tip: It's interesting that it took Washington how long it did to pick up Griffin's option considering Allen's words. Nevertheless, Griffin is slated to start the 2015 season and will look to play a full season for the first time in his career. Draft him as a QB2.

Redskins | Mike Shanahan talks RG3

Sat, 23 May 2015 15:25:04 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III can't blame his regression on injuries, according to former Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan. "I don't think getting hurt has anything to do with it," Shanahan told WJFK in Washington Friday, May 22. "I think what you do is you rehab yourself and you get better. ... You don't have to have great running ability to run the read-option. You have to be able to know when to slide, when to throw the football away, depending on if you're running or passing," said Shanahan.

Fantasy Tip: RG3 has the abilities to be a steal in the late rounds of 2015 fantasy drafts, if he's able to stay healthy and translate his game to head coach Jay Gruden's system. Griffin is worth a flier as a second quarterback.

Redskins | RG III's benching meant to send message

Fri, 15 May 2015 09:23:41 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was benched last season, in part, to set him up to succeed in 2015. The team wanted him to lose his sense of entitlement to his opportunities.

Fantasy Tip: RG III appears to be the team's starter, but he'll have a short leash during the season. He's a midrange QB2 in fantasy.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to make strides in '15?

Mon, 11 May 2015 13:35:29 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III should be comfortable enough with the offense to improve this season, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "Everything should come a lot more natural for [Griffin], and hopefully, we see that transition from year one to year two in this system with the terminology and knowing where to go with your footwork and anticipation of getting the ball out quicker," Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: It will certainly be hard not to improve this year after a tumultuous 2014 campaign that ended prematurely because of a dislocated ankle. If he's comfortable enough with the offense and if he can play a full season up to his potential, he can end up in QB1 range this season.
