Redskins | Robert Griffin cleared

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:04:07 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has been cleared to play Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: How much Griffin plays remains to be seen. It would be of benefit to the Redskins to be cautious with him as he is coming off a concussion. Griffin sometimes plays with unnecessary abandon, which too frequently puts him in harm's way and makes him a risk to draft this year. Consider him a QB2.

Redskins | Robert Griffin won't be benched

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:21:44 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) practiced fully Tuesday, Aug. 25, and didn't experience any setbacks from the concussion he's been recovering from. Head coach Jay Gruden said he hasn't thought of using backup quarterbacks. Gruden also said he hasn't considered benching Griffin because of his lack of effectiveness.

Fantasy Tip: Gruden and the Redskins seem set on Griffin as their starter, at least for now. Griffin has been battered this preseason, and throughout his short career, but he is a capable starter if he can stay healthy. He gives Washington another dimension with his running ability, but he still shouldn't be regarded as a starting fantasy quarterback.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson may not play Saturday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:06:58 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's (shoulder) chances of playing Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Baltimore Ravens are pretty slim, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Jackson has been dealing with a shoulder sprain.

Fantasy Tip: It's important for players, especially key players like Jackson, not to take any risks so close to the regular season. Washington needs Jackson at full health for Week 1. It's encouraging that he is able to at least do individual drills, however. Consider him a WR2 in standard leagues.

Redskins | Jordan Reed feeling fully healthy

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:11:49 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) said he's feeling 100% after returning to practice Tuesday, Aug. 25. Head coach Jay Gruden said Reed looked great and has made progress. Reed admitted he still has work to do, though. "[I want to] not have any mental errors, be real sharp with the playbook and just real crisp with my footwork and routes," Reed said. Reed said he is excited to be playing this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins will really need Reed to stay healthy this season. They have already lost Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen for the season. If Reed can maintain his good health and produce the way he has in the past, he could be a steal at tight end in fantasy drafts.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to see neurologist

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 13:11:24 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has been cleared for "non-contact" activity in practice, according to head coach Jay Gruden. He has no effects of a concussion but is still scheduled to see a neurologist.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin appears to have recovered from the concussion he suffered in the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Aug. 20. Even before the injury, he was considered no better than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in deeper leagues.

Redskins | Robert Griffin practicing

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:37:45 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) is fully participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin suffered a concussion in the last preseason game but appears to have recovered from the injury. Griffin struggled last season but is looking to improve his play but should not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point.

Redskins | Doubts about RG III setting in

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 16:17:39 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has doubts lingering from "people in the building" that believe the team needs to make a change at quarterback, according to ESPN980's Jason Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Until there's word that Griffin is replaced as the starter, he's a midrange QB2 in deeper leagues. Kirk Cousins is a low-end QB2 that seems to be gaining steam.

Redskins | Robert Griffin hit often

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 17:03:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion, stinger) was sacked three times and hit several other times during the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 20, and had to leave the game because of a concussion and a stinger. Griffin was hit twice by unblocked rushers during the game. OG Brandon Scherff said the offensive line's play was unacceptable.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is expected to be fine and could play in the next preseason game but could be in for a long season if the offensive line continues to struggle. Griffin should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

Redskins | Colt McCoy, Kirk Cousins battling

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 16:58:55 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy replaced QB Robert Griffin III (concussion, shoulder) when he was injured in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 20, not QB Kirk Cousins. Cousins is expected to be the backup entering the season, but head coach Jay Gruden said it remains an "open competition" for the backup job.

Fantasy Tip: With RG3 already injured behind a porous offensive line, there's a good chance that we see Washington's backup quarterback at some point this season. Cousins has more fantasy upside, but turnovers remain a big issue. Neither Cousins nor McCoy should be drafted.
