Redskins | Robert Griffin III likely done with team

Thu, 27 Nov 2014 06:46:23 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is highly unlikely to return to the team next season, sources within the organization said. Head coach Jay Gruden convinced owner Daniel Snyder and team president/general manager Bruce Allen that chance was necessary. Some within the organization feel Griffin should have spent less time in the weight room and more on honing other parts of his game.

Fantasy Tip: There will likely be several teams interested in RG III. However, barring injury to Colt McCoy, and possibly Kirk Cousins, Griffin's fantasy value is toast this season.

Redskins | Robert Griffin needs more seasoning

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 11:47:19 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III needs more seasoning, and he'll likely do it from the bench for the rest of this season, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin is under contract for one more year, and he could still be in their long-term plans. "Robert has done some good things at quarterback, but I just think he needs a little bit more time in this system with the verbiage and the plays to sit back, take a step back and learn, and when he gets back in there he'll be a lot more decisive, hopefully, and ready to roll," Gruden said. The 'Skins want Griffin to eventually become more of a pocket passer, and they want him to be able to regain confidence in his abilities.

Fantasy Tip: Gruden should be dumped in all standard leagues at this point. In his place will be Colt McCoy, who'll get the start in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts. McCoy ($3,700) doesn't have much upside, making him an unattractive FantasyScore weapon as your QB.

Redskins | Colt McCoy officially starting

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 06:33:02 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has officially been benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy in Week 13. Head coach Jay Gruden informed the team Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is cheap on FantasyScore, but quarterback is too important of a position to skimp on.

Redskins | RG3 still part of long-term plan

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 20:36:14 -0800

The Washington Redskins are planning on benching QB Robert Griffin III for the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts in favor of QB Colt McCoy. However, Griffin still appears to be part of the team's long-term plan, another source said Tuesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: RG3 is an obvious must-sit in FantasyScore, and his replacement Colt McCoy might be a nice sleeper at just $3,700 (or 7.4 percent of the cap).

Redskins | 'Skins leave door open for QB change?

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 11:42:47 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was named the starter for Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Nov. 24, by head coach Jay Gruden, but he left open some wiggle room to make a change during the week. "It's Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock, and right now we have every intent for Robert, but we'll look at the tape and make our evaluations here shortly," Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has been pretty awful the last several weeks, and his mechanics are mostly to blame. At $5,600 (11.2% of cap), Griffin isn't terribly expensive for your daily lineups, but it's hard to trust him these days, especially when a benching could come very soon if he continues to struggle.

Redskins | Robert Griffin will start in Week 13

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 12:23:10 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will start Sunday, Nov. 30, against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has been a huge disappointment this year both in real life and in fantasy football. He's not worth starting until he gets back on track.

Redskins | Clock ticking on Robert Griffin III

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 07:07:16 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's point of emphasis is to get the ball out quickly Sunday, Nov. 23. Head coach Jay Gruden has dumbed down the offense to allow quick throws to playmakers and make for easy reads. The landscape within the organization has changed for Griffin, though. Gruden has the authority to bench Griffin, and it could happen if he doesn't play well enough. Things behind the scenes, like special rules allowing Griffin's family to have total access to the facility, has changed as well.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin ($5,600; 11.2% of your cap) isn't worth the start this weekend as there are much more favorable options on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Robert Griffin critiqued by coach

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 12:21:44 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III had fundamental flaws and below average footwork Sunday, Nov. 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if this is more than just postgame tension. Griffin has struggled since returning from injury, but there haven't been any rumblings of Kirk Cousins taking back the starting job. Griffin has a tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12. If possible, look elsewhere at the quarterback position.

Redskins | Robert Griffin should play

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 11:41:52 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 14, and is listed as probable for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin should be able to start his second straight game after coming back from his ankle injury. Griffin has a price of $5,900 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to use a bit more money for a better option at the position.

Redskins | Robert Griffin practices fully

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 13:21:07 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has been underwhelming since his return from a dislocated ankle. The Redskins figure to lean heavily on their running game (Alfred Morris) this week, but Griffin could at least provide a nice bye-week filler at $5,900 on FantasyScore, though you can find better value elsewhere.
