Redskins | Kirk Cousins named starter

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 06:24:34 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was named the starting quarterback Monday, Aug. 31, over QB Robert Griffin III, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has a little more upside than the "game manager" purgatory, but he's a low-end QB2 in two-QB leagues. RG III should not be drafted at this point.

Redskins | No decision on Washington QB starter

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:40:28 -0700

Washington Redskins QBs Kirk Cousins and Robert Griffin III still don't know who will start Week 1, according to a source. It was previously reported that Cousins was expected to start Week 1 over Griffin.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin's recent concussion issues have made Washington's quarterback situation a complicated one. Again, whoever starts is not worth starting as your fantasy quarterback.

Redskins | Robert Griffin can practice

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:16:22 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is allowed to practice without contact following tests, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: There have been rumblings that Kirk Cousins will start Week 1 of the regular season. One would think Griffin could still start if he is medically cleared to play, though. Neither Cousins nor Griffin should be drafted as a QB1.

Redskins | Robert Griffin not cleared to play

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:09:46 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has not been cleared to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and will be reevaluated in one to two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will not be allowed to play until he passes all of the concussion tests, which could make his status for Week 1 uncertain. Griffin probably will not be a great starting option when he is healthy this season and should be a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

Redskins | Robert Griffin cleared

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:04:07 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has been cleared to play Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: How much Griffin plays remains to be seen. It would be of benefit to the Redskins to be cautious with him as he is coming off a concussion. Griffin sometimes plays with unnecessary abandon, which too frequently puts him in harm's way and makes him a risk to draft this year. Consider him a QB2.

Redskins | Robert Griffin won't be benched

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:21:44 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) practiced fully Tuesday, Aug. 25, and didn't experience any setbacks from the concussion he's been recovering from. Head coach Jay Gruden said he hasn't thought of using backup quarterbacks. Gruden also said he hasn't considered benching Griffin because of his lack of effectiveness.

Fantasy Tip: Gruden and the Redskins seem set on Griffin as their starter, at least for now. Griffin has been battered this preseason, and throughout his short career, but he is a capable starter if he can stay healthy. He gives Washington another dimension with his running ability, but he still shouldn't be regarded as a starting fantasy quarterback.

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 07:12:27 -0700

Fantasy Tip: RG III is a midrange QB2 in fantasy.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to see neurologist

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 13:11:24 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has been cleared for "non-contact" activity in practice, according to head coach Jay Gruden. He has no effects of a concussion but is still scheduled to see a neurologist.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin appears to have recovered from the concussion he suffered in the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Aug. 20. Even before the injury, he was considered no better than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in deeper leagues.

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 11:37:45 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) is fully participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin suffered a concussion in the last preseason game but appears to have recovered from the injury. Griffin struggled last season but is looking to improve his play but should not be more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point.

Redskins | Doubts about RG III setting in

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 16:17:39 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has doubts lingering from "people in the building" that believe the team needs to make a change at quarterback, according to ESPN980's Jason Reid.

Fantasy Tip: Until there's word that Griffin is replaced as the starter, he's a midrange QB2 in deeper leagues. Kirk Cousins is a low-end QB2 that seems to be gaining steam.
