Redskins | Robert Griffin will miss Week 3

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 12:14:49 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 19, and has been ruled out for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin likely will miss a few more weeks because of his injury. Kirk Cousins will be the starter while Griffin is sidelined. Cousins costs $7,600 on FantasyScore this week, but owners probably could find a better option to use.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins a pocket passer

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 09:43:00 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is more of a pocket passer than QB Robert Griffin III, and Cousins sees the field better. Cousins kept the team out of danger in Week 2 by quickly throwing the ball at a receiver's feet with a rusher in his face instead of trying to force the ball downfield like Griffin has frequently done. Cousins may not be as dangerous as Griffin in zone-read plays, but Cousins has shown he can make good, quick decisions in the pocket after going through his progressions quickly.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is still learning, but he could find success in place of Griffin, because this system seems to fit him the best. His numbers won't always be eye-popping, but for instance, he could easily return great value on his $7,600 FantasyScore salary against the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend.

Redskins | Robert Griffin could return in eight weeks

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 14:11:47 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return around eight weeks after head coach Jon Gruden said Griffin will be in a cast for the next 10 days. After that, he'll likely spend four to six weeks rehabbing his dislocated left ankle. QB Kirk Cousins will continue to start in place of Griffin in the meantime.

Fantasy Tip: You can avoid Griffin at FantasyScore for a while, and he may not be of much use when he returns, either. Meanwhile, Cousins ($7,600) is an attractive option against the Philadelphia Eagles if you're willing to pass up some of the bigger names at quarterback.

Redskins | Robert Griffin will wear cast

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:50:43 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will wear a cast on his dislocated ankle for 10 days and then will be re-evaluated after the cast is taken off.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will be sidelined several weeks because of his injury, so owners will need to look elsewhere for a starting quarterback. Kirk Cousins could be a waiver wire option for desperate owners.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins better suited for offense?

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 14:09:44 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has the skill set suited for what head coach Jay Gruden wants to do with the offense, according to a person with knowledge of Gruden's thinking. Gruden thinks Cousins can succeed in the offense better than QB Robert Griffin III (ankle), but Gruden understood it would have been impossible to make a quarterback change without Griffin being injured. Gruden was having a hard time getting Griffin to grasp the drop-back passing system the last few months.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins looked good replacing Griffin, going 22-for-33 for 250 yards and two touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has another nice matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3, and he might be worth a play in FantasyScore with what will likely be a bargain price.

Redskins | Robert Griffin not going to IR

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 12:11:49 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will not be placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news, obviously, but Griffin is still expected to miss an extended period of time. Kirk Cousins is a viable replacement in his stead.

Redskins | No fractures for Robert Griffin

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 09:53:30 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) isn't dealing with a fractured ankle, according to an MRI exam, and he doesn't think surgery is necessary. The best-case scenario for Griffin to recover from the injury is six to eight weeks, according to several surgeons.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin may not have to miss the rest of the season, but there's a good chance he won't be the same when he returns. Kirk Cousins will take over and isn't a bad option as a backup QB for fantasy if you're in need.

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 13:51:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) has been diagnosed with a dislocated ankle after leaving the Week 2 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He is expected to undergo further testing Monday, Sept. 15, to determine the severity of his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin could potentially be out for the season. Kirk Cousins will be a hot property off the waiver wire in weekly fantasy leagues, and he could be a nice value in Week 3 for FantasyScore owners against the Philadelphia Eagles.
