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.

Redskins | QB decision coming this week

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 18:02:37 -0700

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.

Redskins | Colt McCoy enters game

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 12:17:04 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy entered the team's Week 7 game after QB Kirk Cousins was benched.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy likely would be a short-term option at quarterback since Robert Griffin should return in the near future. Owners should not consider starting Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy if they are the options next week.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins won't be benched

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 11:19:17 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is not in danger of being benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy after the team lost their fourth straight game in Week 6, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Cousins now leads the league with eight interceptions, with seven of them coming in the last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins ($7,000 at FantasyScore this week) faces a weak Tennessee Titans defense in Week 7 at home. Cousins isn't an ideal option for your lineup, but he profiles as a sleeper pick this weekend if you're feeling bold.

Fri, 23 Aug 2013 12:34:15 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QBs Colt McCoy, Scott Tolzien, Seneca Wallace and B.J. Daniels are not guaranteed a roster spot at this point.

Fri, 22 Feb 2013 20:05:33 -0800

The Cleveland Browns haven't hushed rumors the team would like to upgrade the quarterback position, and head coach Rob Chudzinski would like to go with a read option. Trading for San Francisco 49ers QB Alex Smith makes sense since he has a history with offensive coordinator Norv Turner, but he is not a good option for the read option. The Browns might have patience in the market, sticking with QBs Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy.
