|Browns president Mike Holmgren all but admitted that McCoy never got a fair shake in 2011 as he couldnít overcome the poor performances from every other facet of the teamís offense. Despite his solid character and toughness (how many quarterbacks would have returned to the game after getting put on another planet from taking a James Harrison headshot?), McCoy may not have the arm strength to be anything more than a quality NFL backup. It remains to be seen whether he will be in Cleveland on opening day.

Colt McCoy suffered neck strain in Week 14

FF Today's Take: It might be for the best for Washington's future. At 3-10 with a top-10 draft pick looking like a sure bet, the Redskins owe it to themselves to see if Griffin can show them enough over the final three games of the season so they can make a decision at the position. Despite the abundance of surrounding talent, however, fantasy owners can safely avoid the quarterback position in Washington for the rest of this season.

RGIII headed to the bench
|The Washington Redskins are planning to start Colt McCoy over Robert Griffin III this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, according to a team source. While Griffin is not a part of Washington's plan for Sunday's game, he still appears to be a significant part of the Redskins' long-term plan, per another source. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The momentum to bench RGIII has been building the last couple weeks and it appears will come to a head this Sunday. Given the state of the offense under Griffin, the turn to McCoy could give the passing game a positive bump. The Redskins face the Colts in Week 13, then STL, NYG, PHI and DAL.
