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.

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

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and WR Andre Roberts are displaying good chemistry in practice Friday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Roberts is a WR5 with upside. Griffin is a weak QB1 or a solid QB2.
