Browns | Robert Griffin not guaranteed to start

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 17:41:40 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III will have to compete for the starting quarterback job during training camp even though the team traded down in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, according to vice president of football operations Sashi Brown. Head coach Hue Jackson said Griffin's presence on the team did not affect the trade.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin likely is the leading candidate for the starting job at this point but will have to compete for the job during training camp. Griffin will not have a lot of weapons to work with next season if he wins the job and likely will be a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III impressed head coach Hue Jackson in a private workout. Jackson called Griffin's accuracy "freakish," according to team sources.

Browns | Robert Griffin ready for competition

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 18:18:58 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III said it doesn't bother him at all if the Browns use the No. 2 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft on a quarterback. "I'm just ready to compete," Griffin said.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will likely have the edge over a rookie, at least to open the year. He has upside because of his running ability, but he isn't worth more than a flier as low-end QB2.

Browns | Robert Griffin signs with Browns

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 09:49:34 -0700

Free-agent QB Robert Griffin III (Redskins) signed a two-year deal with the Cleveland Browns Thursday, March 24.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Hue Jackson told RG III to be ready to compete with a high draft pick at quarterback. Griffin had an awesome rookie season before injuries and a clash in philosophies derailed his career. What made him special was his straight-line speed, which he has been tentative to exhibit since he tore his ACL. What's clear is that he's motivated and still has something to offer fantasy owners if he can win the gig. He's a low-end QB2 in fantasy, and there isn't a lot in that area that he can't outperform.
