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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."

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."

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.

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."
