Redskins | Jordan Reed limited

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 11:50:35 -0800

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Reed ($5,000) sat out last week, but it looks like he has a good chance to return in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have allowed 9.10 fantasy points to tight ends on average this year, but trusting Reed with a move to Colt McCoy as the team's quarterback is suspect.

Redskins | Robert Griffin needs more seasoning

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 11:47:19 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III needs more seasoning, and he'll likely do it from the bench for the rest of this season, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin is under contract for one more year, and he could still be in their long-term plans. "Robert has done some good things at quarterback, but I just think he needs a little bit more time in this system with the verbiage and the plays to sit back, take a step back and learn, and when he gets back in there he'll be a lot more decisive, hopefully, and ready to roll," Gruden said. The 'Skins want Griffin to eventually become more of a pocket passer, and they want him to be able to regain confidence in his abilities.

Fantasy Tip: Gruden should be dumped in all standard leagues at this point. In his place will be Colt McCoy, who'll get the start in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts. McCoy ($3,700) doesn't have much upside, making him an unattractive FantasyScore weapon as your QB.

Redskins | Colt McCoy could start past Week 13

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 09:58:05 -0800

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy will start past Week 13 if he plays well, although the move may not be permanent. According to head coach Jay Gruden, McCoy gives the team the best chance to win now.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is a cheap option in FantasyScore with a price $3,700, but you should look for more reliable options for just a bit more money.

Redskins | Colt McCoy officially starting

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 06:33:02 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has officially been benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy in Week 13. Head coach Jay Gruden informed the team Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is cheap on FantasyScore, but quarterback is too important of a position to skimp on.

Redskins | RG3 still part of long-term plan

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 20:36:14 -0800

The Washington Redskins are planning on benching QB Robert Griffin III for the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts in favor of QB Colt McCoy. However, Griffin still appears to be part of the team's long-term plan, another source said Tuesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: RG3 is an obvious must-sit in FantasyScore, and his replacement Colt McCoy might be a nice sleeper at just $3,700 (or 7.4 percent of the cap).

Redskins | Colt McCoy to start in Week 13

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 20:35:45 -0800

The Washington Redskins are planning to start QB Colt McCoy in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts in place of struggling QB Robert Griffin III, according to a team source.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is a rather attractive FantasyScore sleeper at just $3,700 (or 7.4 percent of the cap), as the Colts rank just 20th in the NFL against the pass.

Redskins | 'Skins leave door open for QB change?

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 11:42:47 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was named the starter for Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Nov. 24, by head coach Jay Gruden, but he left open some wiggle room to make a change during the week. "It's Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock, and right now we have every intent for Robert, but we'll look at the tape and make our evaluations here shortly," Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has been pretty awful the last several weeks, and his mechanics are mostly to blame. At $5,600 (11.2% of cap), Griffin isn't terribly expensive for your daily lineups, but it's hard to trust him these days, especially when a benching could come very soon if he continues to struggle.

Redskins | Robert Griffin will start in Week 13

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 12:23:10 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will start Sunday, Nov. 30, against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has been a huge disappointment this year both in real life and in fantasy football. He's not worth starting until he gets back on track.

Redskins | Alfred Morris no longer overthinking

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 10:26:11 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris, who ran 21 times for 126 yards in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12, gained most of his yardage after contact and entered the game against the Niners averaging 1.95 yards after contact. He's averaging 5.39 yards per carry in the last three games, according to ESPN Stats & Information. "I stopped hesitating," Morris said of his improved running. "I was trying to see too much." Week 12 was Morris' first 100-yard effort of the year, and he's fifth in rushing with 826 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Morris' matchup against SF looked to be a tough one, but his effort proved otherwise. Heading into Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts, who allow 21.39 fantasy points to backs on average, Morris should be a wise play at FantasyScore.

Redskins | Alfred Morris tops century mark

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 20:42:46 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris averaged 6.0 yards per attempt on 21 carries in the Week 12 game against the San Francisco 49ers. It was his first 100-yard game of the season, and first since Nov. 7, 2013, against the Minnesota Vikings. "I stopped trying to think too much," Morris said Sunday, Nov. 23. "I said this weeks ago: I was thinking too much. I've been playing this game since I was five. I know how to be a runner. I just stopped thinking and stopped trying to make things happen that weren't there."

Fantasy Tip: Morris ripped off four long runs of 30, 22, 16 and 22 against a decent 49ers defense. He has 92 or more rushing yards over the past three games, and he has found the end zone four times in the past four games. He has re-emerged as a must-start in FantasyScore, regardless of competition.
