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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
