Redskins | Colt McCoy to start Week 8

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 14:22:07 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy will start Week 8, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: It's best to stay away from McCoy, who could only be a one-week starter until Robert Griffin III returns from injury.

Redskins | Robert Griffin unlikely to play

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 13:19:52 -0700

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unlikely to be ready to play Monday, Oct. 27, against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said that Griffin has looked great in practices the last two weeks, but cited the fact that he's rusty and hasn't had meaningful repetitions in six weeks as a factor. "First it starts with the doctors telling me he's full-go, as far as being able to take a hit and all that good stuff," Gruden said. "And then it's gonna be getting more reps, and then I've got to see him comfortable throwing the timing routes, the out routes on time with no hitch, and all the reads and all the progressions. He's going to have to get more and more reps."

Fantasy Tip: Colt McCoy is expected to start at quarterback for the 'Skins against Dallas as Washington eases Griffin back into the swing of things. Griffin should be owned in all leagues now, but it's probably not wise to start him at FantasyScore until after their Week 10 bye.

Redskins | No chance RG3 plays in Week 8

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 19:54:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, there is no chance Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) plays in the Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Oct. 27, multiple sources said Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins have a bye in Week 10, and it's entirely possible we do not see RG3 until Week 11, giving him three more weeks to get back to 100 percent.

Redskins | Doctors to decide Robert Griffin's status

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 10:28:43 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's (ankle) status for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys will be determined by team doctors, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "It's up to the trainers and doctors right now, they gotta clear him, No. 1, like I said," Gruden added. "No. 2, he's got to feel good. But it's gonna be a process of how he feels tomorrow, how he feels the next day, and how he's throwing and how he's playing the position." Griffin took part in individual drills in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, and took repetitions in the team portion. Gruden said Griffin looked good doing the drills.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will likely be questionable for the game Monday night. Try to avoid using him at FantasyScore this weekend. Better options are out there.

Redskins | Jay Gruden wants to name QB soon

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 09:52:39 -0700

Washington Redskins QBs Robert Griffin III (ankle) and Colt McCoy hopefully will find out the starting quarterback for Week 8 by Thursday, Oct. 23, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Griffin will either start or be inactive for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor this situation to see if Griffin has a chance to play. Griffin could be limited by the injury if he does play, so he may not be a great start for owners. McCoy costs $3,900 on FantasyScore but probably is not a great option to use if he receives the start.

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.
