Redskins | Washington not giving up on RG3

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 13:57:22 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III isn't being given up on by the team's executives, according to executive Doug Williams. "This is a young guy that's got some talent," Williams said. "There are adjustments that he has to make if I think given time, and I think that's one of the reasons why nobody has given up on him. With the talent that he does have, you're hoping that the last couple of years with the injuries and everything is out of the way, that he will develop into the guy that we all hope for him to be. I think it's fair to give him that opportunity."

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will enter training camp as the team's starter, but he'll have to perform well to hold off Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy. Griffin could likely have a short leash with the coaching staff, too. On top of his injury history in recent seasons, Griffin is a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option as a QB2.

Redskins | Competition not going away for RGIII

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 16:28:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will be the first-team quarterback during offseason workouts, according to head Jay Gruden, but Gruden also said he expects QB Kirk Cousins and QB Colt McCoy to be on the roster when the regular season begins.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has the most upside among the three, but his injury history and the lack of support he seems to have received from the coaching staff at times makes him a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option. He is worth taking a chance on in drafts but only after you have secured a more reliable starting quarterback.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon to see more targets?

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 19:45:07 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon's production slipped last year largely because of instability at the quarterback position, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and Gruden said that he plans to have Garcon's numbers go "back up" in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: While the idea is nice in theory, there is no guarantee that there will be stability under center in Washington this season either, and the presence of DeSean Jackson makes it very unlikely that Garcon will ever duplicate his 113-catch season from 2013. Draft him as a WR3.

Redskins | Marcus Mariota may meet with WAS

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 07:37:54 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota may meet with the Washington Redskins before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins do not have a clear starting quarterback, so Mariota could compete for the starting job if he is selected by the Redskins. Mariota would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins a starting job in the league.

Redskins | Santana Moss could return

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 12:55:21 -0700

Free-agent WR Santana Moss (Redskins) could re-sign with the Washington Redskins this offseason, but the two sides have not had a lot of talks to this point. The team likely will see what happens during the draft before making a decision on Moss.

Redskins | Chris Thompson could play on third down

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 08:01:20 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson is the front runner for the third-down back role, according to head coach Jay Gruden. The team could also draft a back for the role.

Fantasy Tip: The 5-foot-8 Thompson had just three carries for 12 yards in his rookie '14 campaign. He's worth keeping an eye on, but his fantasy potential is pretty limited to an RB5 flyer right now.

Redskins | Robert Griffin's option to be picked up?

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 13:56:17 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's option must be picked up by May 3. General manager Scot McCloughan said the team has had discussions about Griffin's option and that they are still talking it through.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has had trouble staying healthy so far in his young career, so it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see Griffin be released. When healthy, however, Griffin is a tremendous dual-threat fantasy quarterback. Stay tuned leading up to the May 3 deadline.

Redskins | Washington willing to draft QB early

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 13:30:43 -0700

Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan said that the team will go with the best player available in the 2015 NFL Draft with the No. 5 overall pick, which means that they could take a quarterback in that spot. McCloughan could be compelled to take Oregon QB Marcus Mariota if he's available at No. 5, even after the team said QB Robert Griffin III was the team's starter a month ago. McCloughan doesn't think anyone will be handed a job, and they'll have to compete to win a spot.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is the team's starting quarterback right now, but he'll have to earn it in training camp this summer, and that task will become tougher if Mariota is on the roster in July. If Griffin indeed winds up being the starter in Week 1, he'll have to prove himself in the fantasy landscape as well. Consider him a QB2 with upside for more if he stays healthy.

Redskins | Washington could trade down

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 16:23:23 -0700

The Washington Redskins could trade out of their fifth overall draft pick in this year's NFL Draft, as teams are increasingly looking to trade up to select Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. "There is speculation that the Jets (at No. 6) could go for Marcus Mariota if he does fall to them. Possibly there's a team that is looking to jump over the Jets and draft Mariota. The Redskins, who we know gave up all those picks to draft RG3, could wind up reaping some of those rewards of trading down at No. 5," NFL media analyst Daniel Jeremiah said.

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 06:36:16 -0700

Redskins | 'Skins bluffing on Marcus Mariota?

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 19:39:25 -0700

The Washington Redskins are reportedly interested in Oregon QB Marcus Mariota with the No. 5 overall pick in the NFL Draft. However, Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports believes the Redskins are trying to stimulate a trade ahead of the No. 5 pick, pushing another player down the board.

Fantasy Tip: The general feeling is that the Redskins are playing games and aren't seriously interested in Mariota, but you never know. Robert Griffin III has been injury-prone and so-so lately, and Kirk Cousins hasn't taken the bull by the horns when given the opportunity to start.
