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.

Redskins | Dislocation confirmed for RGIII

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.

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:30:04 -0700

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) suffered a dislocated ankle during the team's Week 2 game, according to a source. He will undergo tests to confirm the injury.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable at this point, but Griffin likely will miss a significant amount of time with the injury. Kirk Cousins should take over the starting job and could be a waiver wire option for desperate owners.

Redskins | Robert Griffin out for game

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 10:54:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 2 after suffering an ankle injury during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin may be dealing with a serious injury since he was carted off the field. Kirk Cousins would become the starting quarterback if Griffin misses several weeks.

Redskins | Robert Griffin carted off

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 10:28:31 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was carted off the field after suffering an ankle injury during the team's Week 2 game, according to Scott Hanson on NFL RedZone. Griffin did not appear to be touched when he suffered the injury.

Fantasy Tip: It does not appear like Griffin will be able to return to this game, and could miss more time depending on the injury. Owners will need to keep an eye out for the severity of the injury in the next day or two.

Redskins | Robert Griffin struggles in opener

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 05:08:42 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III struggled to move the offense down the field in the team's Week 1 loss to the Houston Texans Sunday, Sept. 7, and he didn't show any explosive running plays, either. He finished the day going 29-for-37 for 267 yards and a lost fumble, and he looked uncomfortable and unsure of himself. The Texans forced the Redskins to go on long, sustained drives, instead of allowing them to beat them with big plays. Griffin completed all eight passes to WR DeSean Jackson, but he averaged just 2.4 yards per catch.

Fantasy Tip: It was only one game, but as Keim mentions, other teams may very well follow suit with the Texans' game plan against Griffin and the offense. With a new offensive game plan in Washington, until we see Griffin become comfortable in the pocket, he may be a risky start in FantasyScore.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III regressing?

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 14:51:31 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III isn't playing consistently, according to ESPN analyst and former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski. Jaworski said Griffin must learn to throw from the pocket instead of running so frequently. Jaworski also added that Griffin's mechanics have worsened, including his footwork and throwing.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has had a rough offseason and preseason and in the minds of many has fallen out of QB1 consideration. He' still worth a starting spot on your roster, though, especially considering his dual threat ability.

Redskins | No QB controversy in Washington

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 16:13:12 -0700

Washington Redskins QBs Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins aren't involved in any kind of quarterback controversy, according to head coach Jay Gruden. The first-team offense has yet to score a touchdown in the preseason, and Cousins has somewhat outplayed Griffin so far.

Fantasy Tip: We're still in the preseason, folks. Griffin would have to really tank early in the season or get injured for the 'Skins to think about a switch to Cousins. There is a lot to worry about with Griffin, but because of his poor performance in the preseason so far, he could be undervalued on your draft day.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III dinged in exhibition game

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:07:34 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (thigh) is dealing with a bruised thigh suffered in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18. Griffin said it is "nothing to worry about" but that he must improve his sliding. He was hit hard a few times after the end of some scrambles and took a cumbersome attempt at a slide. "When he gets out of the pocket, he needs to protect himself," said head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin's durability is the chief concern to fantasy players trying to capitalize on his sleeper potential. In the middle rounds, the risk is alleviated, though not erased.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins outperforming RGIII?

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 11:55:14 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was the best quarterback on the team during the Redskins-Patriots joint practices, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. Reiss said Cousins had better mechanics, was more decisive with his ball release and ran the offense better than QB Robert Griffin III.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will likely remain the starter, but it's not encouraging if the backup is starting to look better than him. If Griffin can stay healthy, he still has the ability to produce at a high level under new head coach Jay Gruden.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 07:51:12 -0700

Redskins | Robert Griffin III won't have many set run plays

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 07:18:05 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's designed running plays might be "few and far between," according to head coach Jay Gruden. He still has the green light to scramble as the situation dictates. "I feel good where he's at," Gruden said. "He made some serious strides just in the spring working in the pocket and delivering throws and pulling it down and running when he had to run. That comes naturally but also comes with a lot of reps and playing the position."

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is a low-end QB1 at best right now.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III praises Alfred Morris

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 11:07:41 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III thinks RB Alfred Morris is the biggest weapon on the team's offense. "I think everyone would lean towards DeSean or Pierre or Jordan Reed," Griffin III said when asked who the biggest weapon in the Redskins' offense is. "I think it's Alfred. With him, defenses have to make a decision whether to puts guys in the box to stop him or leave the box light and allow Alfred to go between the tackles and lure in the safeties. I think it will be interesting to see what defenses do against him."

Fantasy Tip: There is every reason to believe that Morris will benefit from the addition of DeSean Jackson to the offense and a healthy Robert Griffin III. Morris should return to top form in 2014.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III to work with Terry Shea

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 07:45:34 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will work with quarterbacks coach Terry Shea next week to tune up before training camp. Griffin worked with Shea earlier in the offseason. Shea focused hard on Griffin's fundamentals, including narrowing his base, getting his feet to turn with his body in the pocket and raising where Griffin held the ball - at times last year he held it too low, leading to a wind-up throw.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin appears to be working hard this offseason to have a bounce-back season.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III back in 2012 form

Sat, 05 Jul 2014 19:11:19 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III looks more explosive this season, according to offensive coordinator Sean McVay. McVay also said he expects Griffin to return to his 2012 form now that he is playing without a knee brace. "I don't think there's any question: he looks explosive," McVay said. "He looks like he is exactly what he was in the 2012 season. I think people underestimate when you have a brace on your knee how much that truly restricts you... So I think being able to take that off, he looks extremely explosive."

Redskins | Robert Griffin III praises head coach and team

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 11:24:44 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III praised new head coach Jay Gruden and general manager Bruce Allen for putting the right people in the locker room in 2014. "What I think is going to help us most this year is that everybody in that building is going to be for us being successful and for us winning," Griffin said. "There are no ulterior motives. That will be great. Jay has been phenomenal. (General manager) Bruce Allen has done great job of getting the right guys in that locker room. I tip my hat to them. They have given us everything we need to be successful. We're going to work our butts off for them."

Redskins | Robert Griffin III wants to maximize each moment

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 11:23:50 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III wants to maximize each moment he has with his teammates in 2014, something he missed out on last offseason as he worked his way back from injury. "That's what people don't understand," Griffin said. "Being around my teammates, being able to work with them, condition with them and lift with them, just the locker room talk is all so important. It's important to me. "Last year, I didn't have an opportunity to do that, but I didn't take that mindset into the season and say, 'This is going to hurt me. This is going to hurt me.' I'm going keep playing the hand that's dealt to me. Last year, I had the rehab. This year, I don't have to do that. I'm going to take full advantage of that."

Fantasy Tip: It should only help Griffin to spend more time around his teammates the rest of the summer. Consider Griffin a low-end QB1 at this point.

Redskins | OC happy with Robert Griffin's offseason work

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 11:12:40 -0700

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay said he was impressed with how QB Robert Griffin III picked up the offense this offseason and translating his knowledge to the field. "He did an excellent job above the neck," McVay said, "as far as absorbing the new system, some of the terminology. … He's done an excellent job translating his knowledge in the meeting room onto the field, recognizing some of those looks. Some of the audible situations we'll give him the opportunity to call things at the line. He's shown he's fully capable of doing it and that's what gives him a great chance to have success this year."

We're a fast, explosive football team both on offense and defense."

Redksins | Robert Griffin looking to improve pocket passing

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 11:25:07 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is ready to become more of a pocket passer, knowing it will be beneficial to his long-term success. New head coach Jay Gruden will implement more elements of a controlled passing game, as he did with the Cincinnati Bengals, including play-action, something Griffin has excelled in.

Fantasy Tip: While Griffin's running ability makes him a more valuable commodity, the risk of injury involved with that may not be worth it. However, Griffin staying in the pocket more should be an encouragement for those looking to draft him this offseason. For now, consider him a fringe QB1.

Redskins | Robert Griffin says offense coming together

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 17:45:59 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said the players have done a good job picking up the new offensive system but need more time to master the offense. "I think it is coming together nicely. The quarterback room is doing really well and we're ahead on a lot of things. But that's where we're supposed to be. We've got to have that mastery of the offense. But coming out here to the field … doing some talking at the line, getting some things under control and getting the looks that we need to be in, it's been good," Griffin said.

Redskins | Robert Griffin looking smooth

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 09:56:09 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III looks effortless in his dropbacks and throwing mechanics during organized team activities now that he isn't impeded by his knee brace.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a rough season that was set back by injuries, Griffin will have a full offseason to prepare, and it looks like it's already doing him good. He won't come cheaply in drafts, though, so be prepared to pay a hefty penny for his services as your QB1. It could be well worth the price, however.

Redskins | Robert Griffin working on mechanics

Thu, 29 May 2014 13:01:29 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, who spent part of the offseason working out with quarterback guru Terry Shea, has been focusing on using a quicker release - more over the top - and having a more narrow base when he throws. Head coach Jay Gruden said the team has harped on Griffin's fundamentals, and he likes how Griffin has responded. "This is all a learning process for him," Gruden said. "It's important for him to take natural strides every day and get better. The thing about Robert is that is his intent when he comes to work every day. He's a sponge for information."

Fantasy Tip: Griffin comes with injury risk in fantasy drafts, but when he's healthy and performing at a high level, he's among the elite fantasy football quarterbacks. A full and healthy offseason and a star receiver in DeSean Jackson will help him tremendously in 2014. For the price this year, Griffin is an attractive QB1.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson, Robert Griffin building chemistry

Thu, 29 May 2014 13:00:08 -0700

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson and QB Robert Griffin III continue to build chemistry during organized team activities this week. "Our chemistry right now is a work in progress," said Jackson, who tweaked his left hamstring and sat out part of practice but said afterward he was fine. "The more we get out here and keep working and staying after practice and running routes and getting our timing down, I think sooner or later we'll be in great shape."

Fantasy Tip: If RGIII can stay healthy all year, the production that both of these players can have is scary. Jackson should continue to be a productive WR2 with more value in PPR leagues.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III still learning defenses

Sat, 03 May 2014 13:10:24 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was still undergoing a learning curve in reading defenses, particularly in his pre-snap reads, last season, according to ESPN.com's John Keim. Keim didn't feel Griffin looked confused in the pocket, but he struggled at times to spot his secondary targets quick enough. Keim also felt Griffin's mechanics needed refined, which led to more inaccuracy, and that was Griffin's biggest priority this offseason.

Last year we ran it a lot," Griffin said. "If he wants to use a sprinkle, a dash, whatever he decides, that's his take, and I'm all for it." The 'Skins used the read option 18.3 percent of the time last season, and they used it 22.7 percent of the time in Griffin's rookie year.

"So a lot of people say I was benched, but I was really shut down."

Redskins | Won't confine Robert Griffin to pocket

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 20:50:16 -0700

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday, April 29, that it is entirely possible QB Robert Griffin III will not carry the ball as many times this season, but he also said Griffin won't be a "robot." In addition, Gruden was asked about the read-option. "We'll have sprinkles here and there," Gruden said. "It's not going to be a major part. I want to make sure that other things that we can do besides the read-option, because it takes a toll." Still, Gruden said he will not try to turn Griffin into a primarily pocket passer, saying "Robert's the quarterback and ultimately Robert will play the position the way Robert plays it. You know, I'm not gonna turn him into a robot and say, 'Stay in (the pocket) no matter what'."

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners would be happy not to see Griffin taking so many chances with his body, but it sounds like he will be given the green light to run when he sees fit. Hopefully, for his sake and that of potential fantasy owners, he improves at avoiding the knockout blow.

Redskins | Robert Griffin ditching knee brace

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 08:49:38 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said he will not wear his knee brace in 2014. Griffin has already started throwing to some of his teammates this offseason, and he'll work out later this month in Arizona will some skill players, including WR Pierre Garcon and RB Alfred Morris.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is over a year removed from his serious knee injury. One would think that should put him in line to bounce back from his disappointing 2013 season, especially since he won't be spending his offseason rehabbing. Still, RG3 is a bit risky as a QB1 with a new coaching staff and offensive approach in town.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has already started throwing to some of his receivers this offseason, and he's scheduled to meet with some of his receivers, tight ends and running backs in Arizona in March to work out together. Griffin also plans to work out with former NFL quarterbacks coach Terry Shea again in order to improve his footwork and to speed up his release. Griffin was unable to do any of that last offseason while he was rehabbing from knee surgery. In 2014, he'll likely play without a protective knee brace, too.

Browns | Kyle Shanahan talks about relationship with Robert Griffin III

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 12:46:26 -0800

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan talked about his relationship with QB Robert Griffin III in his time with the Washington Redskins. "And a thing that I always did with him and that we did with each other is when stuff would come out, we'd address it," Shanahan said. "You know, we'd get into our room, we'd talk about it and make sure we felt good about it. And I think Robert and I, through a very tough time, we managed to keep our relationship through the year. I'm not gonna say it was easy. Nothing's easy when you go through something like that. But I do believe going through it, Robert and I, in the long run, it'll make both of us better. It's something that is a challenge, and I do believe going through that, as hard as it was, will help me. And I think when it's all said and done and Robert and I look back on it, I'm really appreciative of some of the stuff he did for me. And I really believe he'll be appreciative of some of the stuff I did for him."

I see accuracy, I see long-ball accuracy, I see toughness ... and I see a strong leader. I see every trait that a quarterback has to have to be successful. I see Robert having all of those, so why wouldn't you want to coach a guy like that? I'm excited to coach (him) and hopefully he's excited to play here."
