Redskins | Kirk Cousins named starter

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 06:24:34 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was named the starting quarterback Monday, Aug. 31, over QB Robert Griffin III, according to a source.

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.

Redskins | No decision on Washington QB starter

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:40:28 -0700

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.

Redskins | Robert Griffin can practice

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:16:22 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is allowed to practice without contact following tests, according to a source.

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.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins to start Week 1?

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 08:24:02 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is expected to be the starting quarterback for the team's Week 1 game, according to sources.

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.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins to start Saturday

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 07:14:00 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will be the starting quarterback for the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, since QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has not been cleared to play.

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.

Redskins | Robert Griffin not cleared to play

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:09:46 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has not been cleared to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and will be reevaluated in one to two weeks.

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.

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.
