|Redskins | Robert Griffin III regressing?|
Thu, 28 Aug 2014 14:51:31 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III isn't playing consistently, according to ESPN analyst and former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski. Jaworski said Griffin must learn to throw from the pocket instead of running so frequently. Jaworski also added that Griffin's mechanics have worsened, including his footwork and throwing.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin has had a rough offseason and preseason and in the minds of many has fallen out of QB1 consideration. He' still worth a starting spot on your roster, though, especially considering his dual threat ability.

|Redskins | No QB controversy in Washington|
Mon, 25 Aug 2014 16:13:12 -0700
Washington Redskins QBs Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins aren't involved in any kind of quarterback controversy, according to head coach Jay Gruden. The first-team offense has yet to score a touchdown in the preseason, and Cousins has somewhat outplayed Griffin so far.
Fantasy Tip: We're still in the preseason, folks. Griffin would have to really tank early in the season or get injured for the 'Skins to think about a switch to Cousins. There is a lot to worry about with Griffin, but because of his poor performance in the preseason so far, he could be undervalued on your draft day.

|Redskins | Robert Griffin III dinged in exhibition game|
Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:07:34 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (thigh) is dealing with a bruised thigh suffered in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18. Griffin said it is "nothing to worry about" but that he must improve his sliding. He was hit hard a few times after the end of some scrambles and took a cumbersome attempt at a slide. "When he gets out of the pocket, he needs to protect himself," said head coach Jay Gruden.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin's durability is the chief concern to fantasy players trying to capitalize on his sleeper potential. In the middle rounds, the risk is alleviated, though not erased.

|Redskins | Kirk Cousins outperforming RGIII?|
Mon, 11 Aug 2014 11:55:14 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was the best quarterback on the team during the Redskins-Patriots joint practices, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. Reiss said Cousins had better mechanics, was more decisive with his ball release and ran the offense better than QB Robert Griffin III.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin will likely remain the starter, but it's not encouraging if the backup is starting to look better than him. If Griffin can stay healthy, he still has the ability to produce at a high level under new head coach Jay Gruden.

|Redskins | Robert Griffin III in sync with Andre Roberts|

Fantasy Tip: Roberts is a WR5 with upside. Griffin is a weak QB1 or a solid QB2.

|Redskins | Robert Griffin III won't have many set run plays|
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 07:18:05 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's designed running plays might be "few and far between," according to head coach Jay Gruden. He still has the green light to scramble as the situation dictates. "I feel good where he's at," Gruden said. "He made some serious strides just in the spring working in the pocket and delivering throws and pulling it down and running when he had to run. That comes naturally but also comes with a lot of reps and playing the position."
Fantasy Tip: Griffin is a low-end QB1 at best right now.

|Redskins | Robert Griffin III praises Alfred Morris |
Thu, 10 Jul 2014 11:07:41 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III thinks RB Alfred Morris is the biggest weapon on the team's offense. "I think everyone would lean towards DeSean or Pierre or Jordan Reed," Griffin III said when asked who the biggest weapon in the Redskins' offense is. "I think it's Alfred. With him, defenses have to make a decision whether to puts guys in the box to stop him or leave the box light and allow Alfred to go between the tackles and lure in the safeties. I think it will be interesting to see what defenses do against him."

|Redskins | Robert Griffin III to work with Terry Shea|
Mon, 07 Jul 2014 07:45:34 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will work with quarterbacks coach Terry Shea next week to tune up before training camp. Griffin worked with Shea earlier in the offseason. Shea focused hard on Griffin's fundamentals, including narrowing his base, getting his feet to turn with his body in the pocket and raising where Griffin held the ball - at times last year he held it too low, leading to a wind-up throw.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin appears to be working hard this offseason to have a bounce-back season.

|Redskins | Robert Griffin III back in 2012 form|
Sat, 05 Jul 2014 19:11:19 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III looks more explosive this season, according to offensive coordinator Sean McVay. McVay also said he expects Griffin to return to his 2012 form now that he is playing without a knee brace. "I don't think there's any question: he looks explosive," McVay said. "He looks like he is exactly what he was in the 2012 season. I think people underestimate when you have a brace on your knee how much that truly restricts you... So I think being able to take that off, he looks extremely explosive."

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III praised new head coach Jay Gruden and general manager Bruce Allen for putting the right people in the locker room in 2014. "What I think is going to help us most this year is that everybody in that building is going to be for us being successful and for us winning," Griffin said. "There are no ulterior motives. That will be great. Jay has been phenomenal. (General manager) Bruce Allen has done great job of getting the right guys in that locker room. I tip my hat to them. They have given us everything we need to be successful. We're going to work our butts off for them."
