Browns | Robert Griffin will get extended look

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 17:03:42 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) will keep the starting job for the remainder of the season "once he gets back in there," according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense, as the Browns really haven't been able to truly evaluate their big offseason acquisition and whether or not he has a future in Cleveland. Plus, the team really isn't going anywhere with Josh McCown under center, while rookie Cody Kessler (concussion) is still out for the foreseeable future. Griffin has the skillset to pull off a Colin Kaepernick-like resurgence, so he is worth monitoring.

Browns | Robert Griffin cleared for contact

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 08:43:09 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been cleared for contact Tuesday, Nov. 29. He will practice during the bye week with QB Cody Kessler (concussion) and QB Josh McCown, and the team will decide on a starter.

Fantasy Tip: Whomever comes out the starter has minimal fantasy appeal. They have a so-so matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals next week, but their upside isn't high enough to warrant a start.

Browns | Cleveland hopes Robert Griffin can return

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 08:16:51 -0800

The Cleveland Browns are hoping QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) can start again this season once he is cleared to play, according to sources. Griffin may stay on the sidelines if QB Cody Kessler plays well in multiple games.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has returned to practice and could start in the next few weeks if Kessler does not play well. Owners should avoid the Browns quarterback no matter which one starts.

Browns | Robert Griffin III returns to practice

Wed, 23 Nov 2016 07:22:01 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 23, and has returned to practice.

Fantasy Tip: RG III would only have value in leagues that play two quarterbacks. However, with them activating him, you'd have to think they would play him when he's fit to return.

Browns | Robert Griffin to practice, not play

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 21:04:33 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) will return to practice this week but has not been cleared for contact or game action, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: That was the expectation last week, and Cody Kessler landing in the concussion protocol has not changed that. RG3 could still come back before the season ends, but there's no incentive to rush him and no fantasy value if/when he returns this season. Josh McCown will start in Week 12.

Browns | RG3 cleared for non-contact activities

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 22:12:56 -0800

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been cleared for non-contact activities but isn't going to practice yet, the team announced Wednesday, Nov. 16. Griffin still needs to be cleared for contact, but he's making strides toward seeing the field again this year. Browns head coach Hue Jackson said Griffin will not practice this week.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin isn't anywhere close to return to game action. He might be back at some time this season, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect much.

Browns | No contact for Robert Griffin

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 09:06:10 -0800

Updating an earlier report, Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has not been cleared for contact in practice, so the 21-day window to activate him has not begun.

Fantasy Tip: That means he's highly unlikely to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unless the team wants to see if he can still be the future of the team, there really isn't much of a point to run him out there at this stage. RG III doesn't have much fantasy luster with most QB bye weeks behind us.

Browns | Robert Griffin cleared to practice

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 06:57:11 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) has been cleared to practice. He'll meet with the team Wednesday, Nov. 16, to determine the next step.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to see him having enough time to be ready to start this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unless the team wants to see if he can still be the future of the team, there really isn't much of a point to run him out there at this stage. RG III doesn't have much fantasy luster with most QB bye weeks behind us.

Browns | Robert Griffin could begin practicing

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 08:26:37 -0800

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) could return to practicing this week, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It's still a long shot, and in a season in the tank, there isn't a lot of reasoning to throw RG III back into the fire. He's not worth stashing at this point.
