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 | 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.
