Redskins | Colt McCoy could start past Week 13

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 09:58:05 -0800

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy will start past Week 13 if he plays well, although the move may not be permanent. According to head coach Jay Gruden, McCoy gives the team the best chance to win now.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is a cheap option in FantasyScore with a price $3,700, but you should look for more reliable options for just a bit more money.

Redskins | Colt McCoy officially starting

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 06:33:02 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has officially been benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy in Week 13. Head coach Jay Gruden informed the team Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is cheap on FantasyScore, but quarterback is too important of a position to skimp on.

Redskins | Colt McCoy to start in Week 13

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 20:35:45 -0800

The Washington Redskins are planning to start QB Colt McCoy in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts in place of struggling QB Robert Griffin III, according to a team source.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is a rather attractive FantasyScore sleeper at just $3,700 (or 7.4 percent of the cap), as the Colts rank just 20th in the NFL against the pass.

Redskins | Robert Griffin could play in Week 9

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 13:11:57 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could play against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 29, and split first-team repetitions with QB Colt McCoy. Gruden said Griffin's situation is now more mental than physical. "We'll see it's all going to depend on how he does in tomorrow and Friday," Gruden said. "And moving forward, how I feel he's coming back. From a physical standpoint he looks good, now it's a matter of mental and getting back into the football part of it. If he looks good in that regard then there's a chance he could play and if not and he needs another week, he'll take another week."

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Griffin isn't available to play at FantasyScore this weekend, but he should now be owned in all other leagues with his return right around the corner. McCoy played surprisingly well on Monday night, but he's a desperation sleeper play against the Vikes.

Redskins | Colt McCoy to start in Week 8

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 14:22:07 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy will start Week 8, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: It's best to stay away from McCoy, who could only be a one-week starter until Robert Griffin III returns from injury.

Redskins | Jay Gruden wants to name QB soon

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 09:52:39 -0700

Washington Redskins QBs Robert Griffin III (ankle) and Colt McCoy hopefully will find out the starting quarterback for Week 8 by Thursday, Oct. 23, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Griffin will either start or be inactive for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor this situation to see if Griffin has a chance to play. Griffin could be limited by the injury if he does play, so he may not be a great start for owners. McCoy costs $3,900 on FantasyScore but probably is not a great option to use if he receives the start.

Redskins | Colt McCoy to start?

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 12:12:34 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy would start this week if QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unable to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: If McCoy does start, he's still not worth a starting spot on your fantasy team. Although, he could be a value play on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to be tested Wednesday

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:39:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is expected to be put through a rigorous workout Wednesday, Oct. 22, that will give team officials a better idea of where he's at in his recovery. Griffin has already joined practices for stretching, warm-ups, individual drills and limited handoffs with the scout team. Head coach Jay Gruden has said he'd like to have Griffin log at least two weeks of practice before returning to a starting role. QB Colt McCoy appears to have the inside track to start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if it's between he and QB Kirk Cousins. "It's a good sign the way Colt finished the game, ran the offense," Gruden said, alluding to his poise and efficiency in engineering the game-winning touchdown drive on the last possession, which started with 3 minutes and 14 seconds remaining. "Very smart and very efficient. Did some good things."

Fantasy Tip: It would be a surprise to see Griffin start against the Cowboys on Monday night. McCoy will be cheap at FantasyScore, but he's not worth considering on the road against a a stout Dallas D.

Redskins | Robert Griffin could start in Week 8

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:04:38 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if he looks really good in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, according to a team source. The team would ideally like to hold him out another week in order to prepare. If he doesn't start, QB Colt McCoy will likely receive the starting nod for the first time since December of 2011 with the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will almost assuredly start over McCoy when he's ready, so it's definitely time to snatch RG3 up off the waiver wire if he's still out there if you're hurting at the quarterback position. It wouldn't be wise to start either McCoy or Griffin against the Cowboys in Week 8, though.

After the game, head coach Jay Gruden said Sunday, Oct. 19, that a decision on the starting quarterback for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys will be made during the week. It's uncertain if QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is an option.
