Redskins | Robert Griffin unlikely to play

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 13:19:52 -0700

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unlikely to be ready to play Monday, Oct. 27, against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said that Griffin has looked great in practices the last two weeks, but cited the fact that he's rusty and hasn't had meaningful repetitions in six weeks as a factor. "First it starts with the doctors telling me he's full-go, as far as being able to take a hit and all that good stuff," Gruden said. "And then it's gonna be getting more reps, and then I've got to see him comfortable throwing the timing routes, the out routes on time with no hitch, and all the reads and all the progressions. He's going to have to get more and more reps."

Fantasy Tip: Colt McCoy is expected to start at quarterback for the 'Skins against Dallas as Washington eases Griffin back into the swing of things. Griffin should be owned in all leagues now, but it's probably not wise to start him at FantasyScore until after their Week 10 bye.

Redskins | No chance RG3 plays in Week 8

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 19:54:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, there is no chance Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) plays in the Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Oct. 27, multiple sources said Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins have a bye in Week 10, and it's entirely possible we do not see RG3 until Week 11, giving him three more weeks to get back to 100 percent.

Redskins | Doctors to decide Robert Griffin's status

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 10:28:43 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's (ankle) status for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys will be determined by team doctors, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "It's up to the trainers and doctors right now, they gotta clear him, No. 1, like I said," Gruden added. "No. 2, he's got to feel good. But it's gonna be a process of how he feels tomorrow, how he feels the next day, and how he's throwing and how he's playing the position." Griffin took part in individual drills in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, and took repetitions in the team portion. Gruden said Griffin looked good doing the drills.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will likely be questionable for the game Monday night. Try to avoid using him at FantasyScore this weekend. Better options are out there.

Redskins | Jay Gruden wants to name QB soon

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 09:52:39 -0700

Washington Redskins QBs Robert Griffin III (ankle) and Colt McCoy hopefully will find out the starting quarterback for Week 8 by Thursday, Oct. 23, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Griffin will either start or be inactive for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor this situation to see if Griffin has a chance to play. Griffin could be limited by the injury if he does play, so he may not be a great start for owners. McCoy costs $3,900 on FantasyScore but probably is not a great option to use if he receives the start.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III increases load

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 07:38:38 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will increase his workload in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: He's expected to miss Week 8, and he shouldn't be considered on FantasyScore for now.

Redskins | Not ruling out Robert Griffin

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 11:06:51 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will not be ruled out for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he has a long way to go in order to be ready, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Griffin must be 100 percent in order to play.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is probably a long shot to play against the Cowboys on Monday night. Don't consider him for your FantasyScore lineup. Colt McCoy is expected to receive the start, and we don't recommend him, either.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to be tested Wednesday

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:39:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is expected to be put through a rigorous workout Wednesday, Oct. 22, that will give team officials a better idea of where he's at in his recovery. Griffin has already joined practices for stretching, warm-ups, individual drills and limited handoffs with the scout team. Head coach Jay Gruden has said he'd like to have Griffin log at least two weeks of practice before returning to a starting role. QB Colt McCoy appears to have the inside track to start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if it's between he and QB Kirk Cousins. "It's a good sign the way Colt finished the game, ran the offense," Gruden said, alluding to his poise and efficiency in engineering the game-winning touchdown drive on the last possession, which started with 3 minutes and 14 seconds remaining. "Very smart and very efficient. Did some good things."

Fantasy Tip: It would be a surprise to see Griffin start against the Cowboys on Monday night. McCoy will be cheap at FantasyScore, but he's not worth considering on the road against a a stout Dallas D.

Redskins | Robert Griffin could start in Week 8

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:04:38 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if he looks really good in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, according to a team source. The team would ideally like to hold him out another week in order to prepare. If he doesn't start, QB Colt McCoy will likely receive the starting nod for the first time since December of 2011 with the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin will almost assuredly start over McCoy when he's ready, so it's definitely time to snatch RG3 up off the waiver wire if he's still out there if you're hurting at the quarterback position. It wouldn't be wise to start either McCoy or Griffin against the Cowboys in Week 8, though.

Redskins | QB decision coming this week

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 18:02:37 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans. After the game, head coach Jay Gruden said Sunday, Oct. 19, that a decision on the starting quarterback for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys will be made during the week. It's uncertain if QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is an option.

Redskins | Robert Griffin limited Thursday

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 15:13:55 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: RG3 began practicing with the team this week but isn't anywhere near returning to game action. Be patient in deeper leagues. You can obviously avoid him at FantasyScore for the forseeable future.

Redskins | Robert Griffin limited Wednesday

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 13:46:54 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was officially listed as limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin isn't close to returning to game action, but it's a good sign that he's back on the practice field. If you have room to stash in standard leagues, it might be close to that time where you would consider picking him up off the waiver wire if his previous owner cut him.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to return to starting job

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 13:28:41 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) "looked fine" and had "a little bounce in to his step" in on-field drills Wednesday, Oct. 15, and head coach Jay Gruden said Griffin will return to his starting quarterback job when doctors have cleared him to return to action. "He looks good so far. He's making good progress as we knew he would, the type of worker he is. But making progress in the training room and making progress in the practice field are two entirely different things. We have to make sure he gets right both mentally and physically before he gets back on the field," Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: Kirk Cousins has struggled during the team's four-game losing streak, so he hasn't helped his cause to make this a quarterback controversy when Griffin is healthy. Cousins isn't the smartest option for your FantasyScore lineups this weekend, even against the Tennessee Titans.

Redskins | Robert Griffin not close to playing

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 09:09:55 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will throw to receivers during practice Wednesday, Oct. 15, but is not close to being ready to play in a game, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin appears to be several weeks away from returning to the lineup. Kirk Cousins likely will continue to be the team's starting quarterback, but owners should look to use a better quarterback to start. Cousins costs $7,000 on FantasyScore this week.

Redskins | Robert Griffin returning to practice

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 12:30:46 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will start participating in individual drills during practice this week, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin may be able to participate in full practices next week.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin does not appear to be ready for Week 7 but may return to the field in a few weeks. Kirk Cousins probably will continue to start in Griffin's place but may not be the best starting option for owners.

Redskins | Robert Griffin won't be back soon

Tue, 07 Oct 2014 14:14:08 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will not be back on the field in the near future, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin wasn't in a walking boot Monday, Oct. 6, and he looked to be in great shape while on the sidelines throwing passes to his teammates. Gruden said Griffin is unlikely to join the team soon in practice. The next step will likely be to have Griffin increase his workload on a treadmill.

Fantasy Tip: In a shallow league, there's justification in dumping Griffin to the waiver wire. By the time he makes it back this season (if he even does), fantasy football schedules will be nearly over, and there is no guarantee that he'll be near 100 percent when he's back on the field.

Sun, 05 Oct 2014 06:14:50 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is expected to return Oct. 27 against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin would have a good matchup and could be an option on FantasyScore as a bye-week fill-in.

Redskins | Robert Griffin does some work

Sat, 04 Oct 2014 09:04:45 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was on the field for the stretching segment of practice Saturday, Oct. 4, but did not participate in any position drills. Griffin wore cleats on both of his feet and appeared to be jogging fairly well. The team does not have a definite timetable for Griffin's return.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has missed several weeks because of his ankle injury and may not be close to returning at this point. Kirk Cousins will continue to start in Griffin's place. Cousins may not be a good option this week on FantasyScore at $7,500 since he is facing the Seattle Seahawks.

Redskins | RGIII accepting of backup role?

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 18:01:28 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return as the team's backup If QB Kirk Cousins plays well in the coming weeks, and according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, the team believes that Griffin is a "team guy" and would accept a backup role.

Fantasy Tip: Although a potential quarterback controversy is brewing, it won't amount to much if Cousins doesn't play well while Griffin is sidelined. Cousins has looked promising in limited action, but it will be interesting to see how he performs now that defenses will be game planning specifically for him. In the meantime, he is an unproven commodity and a risky play at FantasyScore.

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 11:48:19 -0700

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden did not rule out QB Kirk Cousins permanently replacing QB Robert Griffin III at quarterback. "Crazy things have happened in NFL," Gruden said. "I'm not going to discount anything"

Fantasy Tip: This will something to monitor as RG3 gets closer to being ready to go, even though it is probably a bit of a long shot at the moment that a permanent switch happens.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."
