Redskins | Not ruling out Robert Griffin

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 11:06:51 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will not be ruled out for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he has a long way to go in order to be ready, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Griffin must be 100 percent in order to play.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is probably a long shot to play against the Cowboys on Monday night. Don't consider him for your FantasyScore lineup. Colt McCoy is expected to receive the start, and we don't recommend him, either.

Redskins | Colt McCoy to start?

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 12:12:34 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy would start this week if QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unable to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: If McCoy does start, he's still not worth a starting spot on your fantasy team. Although, he could be a value play on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to be tested Wednesday

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:39:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is expected to be put through a rigorous workout Wednesday, Oct. 22, that will give team officials a better idea of where he's at in his recovery. Griffin has already joined practices for stretching, warm-ups, individual drills and limited handoffs with the scout team. Head coach Jay Gruden has said he'd like to have Griffin log at least two weeks of practice before returning to a starting role. QB Colt McCoy appears to have the inside track to start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if it's between he and QB Kirk Cousins. "It's a good sign the way Colt finished the game, ran the offense," Gruden said, alluding to his poise and efficiency in engineering the game-winning touchdown drive on the last possession, which started with 3 minutes and 14 seconds remaining. "Very smart and very efficient. Did some good things."

Fantasy Tip: It would be a surprise to see Griffin start against the Cowboys on Monday night. McCoy will be cheap at FantasyScore, but he's not worth considering on the road against a a stout Dallas D.

Redskins | Robert Griffin could start in Week 8

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:04:38 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if he looks really good in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, according to a team source. The team would ideally like to hold him out another week in order to prepare. If he doesn't start, QB Colt McCoy will likely receive the starting nod for the first time since December of 2011 with the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will almost assuredly start over McCoy when he's ready, so it's definitely time to snatch RG3 up off the waiver wire if he's still out there if you're hurting at the quarterback position. It wouldn't be wise to start either McCoy or Griffin against the Cowboys in Week 8, though.

Redskins | Colt McCoy enters game

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 12:17:04 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy entered the team's Week 7 game after QB Kirk Cousins was benched.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy likely would be a short-term option at quarterback since Robert Griffin should return in the near future. Owners should not consider starting Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy if they are the options next week.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson returns

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 12:04:20 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) was able to return in the team's Week 7 game after missing time with a knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Jackson is only dealing with a minor injury. Jackson could be limited during practice next week but should have a good chance to play in Week 8.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson injures knee

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 11:01:35 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (knee) left the team's Week 7 game because of a knee injury and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to receive a better idea of the severity of his injury. Andre Roberts could become more involved in the passing game but probably would not be more than a flex option.
