Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (head) will be examined by a neurologist Thursday, Sept. 3, or Friday, Sept. 4. That exam could mean more about when the team might release him rather than when he would play again.
Fantasy Tip: RG III's fantasy value is on ice right now and he shouldn't be drafted.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is a natural born leader and is ready to be the starting quarterback this season, according to WR Pierre Garcon. "You can tell from what kind of person he is that he's a leader, he's been doing it for a long time and he's excited about the opportunity. We definitely want to keep him excited and never want to, you know, have him lose that faith in himself. He's definitely ready and eager to get the season started to prove to everybody what he can do," Garcon said.
Fantasy Tip: Cousins has not had a lot of success when he has started games in his career but likely will receive a few start to prove he can start. Cousins does not have a lot of fantasy value and is nothing more than a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: This dispels any possibility the decision was a short-term move based on Robert Griffin III's (concussion) health. Cousins is a low-end QB2 that could be a matchup play on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has a little more upside than the "game manager" purgatory, but he's a low-end QB2 in two-QB leagues. RG III should not be drafted at this point.

Washington Redskins QBs Kirk Cousins and Robert Griffin III still don't know who will start Week 1, according to a source. It was previously reported that Cousins was expected to start Week 1 over Griffin.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin's recent concussion issues have made Washington's quarterback situation a complicated one. Again, whoever starts is not worth starting as your fantasy quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: There have been rumblings that Kirk Cousins will start Week 1 of the regular season. One would think Griffin could still start if he is medically cleared to play, though. Neither Cousins nor Griffin should be drafted as a QB1.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins likely will receive the start if Robert Griffin III is not cleared to play in a few weeks. He has thrown 18 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in 14 career games and should not be a starting option in any fantasy league.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins could open the season as the starting quarterback if Griffin remains sidelined because of his concussion. Cousins has not had a lot of success over the last few seasons and should not be a fantasy option.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:09:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Griffin will not be allowed to play until he passes all of the concussion tests, which could make his status for Week 1 uncertain. Griffin probably will not be a great starting option when he is healthy this season and should be a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for the third preseason game because of a hamstring injury. The team may hold him out so he can play in the final preseason game.
