Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) is likely to play in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys despite dealing with a sprained right shoulder, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24. "He can throw the ball, it's just a little sore," Gruden said. "We just want to make sure he doesn't aggravate it more, give him another couple days of rest and be ready to go Friday."
Fantasy Tip: Griffin ($5,555) should play in the season finale, but he doesn't inspire much confidence for your FantasyScore lineups, especially if he's not 100 percent facing the Dallas Cowboys.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 24, because of a sprained shoulder. Head coach Jay Gruden said he does not believe Griffin's injury is serious.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should watch Griffin's practice participation during the week to see if the injury affects his Week 17 status. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use than Griffin.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was benched earlier in the season in part because head coach Jay Gruden is looking for a quarterback that could lead the team to wins. "That is the No. 1 factor, and that is it," Gruden said. "Obviously you look at the production and all that stuff, and what he could've done maybe, but winning football games is the only thing that matters to me for a quarterback. And it doesn't matter if they go 12-for-24 for 80 yards and we win, or if they go 28-for-35 for 400 [yards] and we lose, you'd rather have the 12-for-24. The ability to manage a game, stay away from the big turnovers and get the W is all that counts."
Fantasy Tip: Griffin will be starting in Week 17 after having a decent performance in Week 16. Griffin will be facing a tough Dallas Cowboys defense this week and may not be the best option for owners this week.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was praised by head coach Jay Gruden following the team's 27-24 win over the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Dec. 20. "He competed, man...I'm happy for Robert," Gruden said.
Fantasy Tip: Although Griffin was efficient, he threw for no touchdowns and an interception and ran for just 11 yards. He has a long way to go before becoming a QB1 option for fantasy owners.
