Redskins | Robert Griffin is ready to return

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 11:47:22 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) received the majority of the first-team repetitions in practice this week, and Griffin feels completely healthy and ready to return to the starting lineup. "If there is any rust, I'll lean on the guys," Griffin said. "It's a game we need. They have a great defense, but I'll lean on my guys to help get me through this game and work with me. I expect them to make a ton of plays, just like they expect me to make a ton of plays. If there is any rust, I'm sure they'll overshadow it because they're playing at a high level right now." He won't be limited at all, meaning the read-zone option is a possibility, along with plays that require him to leave the pocket.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin isn't available at FantasyScore this week, and that's probably a good thing. You'll probably want to avoid using him until after the team's Week 10 bye, anyway. Expect Griffin to lean heavily on his favorite target, Pierre Garcon, when he goes to the air.

Redskins | 'Skins intent on starting Robert Griffin

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 13:50:11 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will start against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, barring any setbacks this week in practice, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden and the coaching staff are intent on Griffin starting, and Gruden said it would take Griffin re-injuring his ankle for him not to play. "We have every intent of him starting," Gruden said. "Everybody's on board as far from a physical standpoint. Last week he was running around like a banchi. He's healthier than most of the guys we have playing. From a physical standpoint he's ready but for a young quarterback who missed this much time in a new system, the big thing is getting back from a mental standpoint." Griffin increased his workload with the first team Thursday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins are fully convinced that Griffin is 100 percent healthy mentally and physically. However, that doesn't mean it's safe to immediately plug him back into your fantasy lineups. It's probably best to wait until after the team's Week 10 bye to trust Griffin.

Redskins | Robert Griffin works with starters

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 10:26:13 -0700

Gruden said the team believes Griffin is 100 percent physically but want to make sure he is up to speed mentally.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin should be the starting quarterback in Week 9 but could be rusty after missing several weeks. Owners can start Griffin this week but may want to lower their expectations.

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 | Robert Griffin very close to return

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:39:06 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is "very, very, very close" to returning to game action, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "Physically I think he'll be ready to go. Doctors are feeling pretty good about it, they still want to feel around this week until we make the final determination. I just want to make sure he feels good in the pocket," Gruden said. The Redskins still don't want to rush Griffin back too soon, though, so the evaluation of him could last another week.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin should be owned in all fantasy football leagues at this point. How he looks in practice this week will likely determine if he plays against the Minnesota Vikings. Colt McCoy ($3,900) played surprisingly well in the Week 8 win, though, so he could see another crack at it.
