Redskins | Robert Griffin limited

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 13:44:26 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is working his way back but does not appear to be ready to play in Week 8. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid using Griffin as well as Colt McCoy, who would start if Griffin misses the game.

Redskins | Robert Griffin says he won't rush

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 11:46:36 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) said he won't rush back to play until his ankle is fully healed. "It's our job to help this team win, and I've been there for Kirk (Cousins) and Colt (McCoy) as much as I possibly can, and being there for this team to make sure they're as ready as possible during this process. And it sucks that I can't get out there and play with them and help them get wins, but I've been listening to the doctors, listening to the trainers, listening to the coaches and we're not going to rush my ankle," Griffin said. The team is leaving open the possibility that Griffin will play Monday, Oct. 27, against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: We don't expect Griffin to start against the Cowboys. It'll be Colt McCoy's show, but we don't recommend him for your FantasyScore lineups.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III decision Monday

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 10:48:50 -0700

A decision on if Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will play in Week 8 will come Monday, Oct. 27, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: It would seem very unlikely that Griffin would be ready to go this week, and with a Monday night game, it is too risky to put him in your lineup. Look elsewhere in FantasyScore this week.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III back in Week 11?

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 18:38:41 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return in Week 11, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "I would think I would guarantee Tampa, most likely, unless something happens between now and then," Gruden said Thursday, Oct. 23. "You've got a good bye week, you've got a couple weeks to make sure it's ready. Obviously Robert is a quick healer. He works extremely hard in the training room. So the process could be sped up a little bit depending on how he feels."

Fantasy Tip: While RGIII will have to shake off some rust whenever he does suit up, a Week 11 return would give him a favorable matchup with a struggling Tampa Bay team right out of the gate.

Redskins | Robert Griffin limited Thursday

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 14:53:42 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has been making progress, but he's not ready to start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys, and the team may not decide to bring him back as the starter until after their Week 10 bye. Griffin isn't even available to use at FantasyScore this weekend, and you should avoid Colt McCoy ($3,900).

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.

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