2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan spent big in order to move up in the draft to select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III and provide Washington with a franchise quarterback to match up against the other talented signal callers in the division. RGIII’s unique talents match up well with Shanahan’s version of the west coast offense, which requires quarterbacks to spend plenty of time outside of the pocket, throwing on the run and scrambling for yards on the ground. At Baylor, Griffin was a monster operating out of the shotgun, throwing for 77 touchdowns and rushing for 32 more, but he will need to adapt his game in the NFL. He possesses an outstanding arm and blazing speed but the odds of him duplicating the season Carolina’s Cam Newton put together as a rookie seem slim. Griffin doesn’t have Newton’s size and strength meaning he won’t be his team’s goal line back like Newton. The Redskins also don’t have a true number one wideout like Newton had in Steve Smith but they do have a deep rotation of receivers that could be productive. If only the team had that type of depth along the offensive line, which has been a major concern and remains so heading into 2012. RGIII is an outstanding dynasty league prospect with a huge upside but fantasy owners are likely best served having him as a bench option in 2012.

RG3 excelling "above the neck" this offseason     -- Mon Jun 30 3:05 pm --

Will be allowed to call some plays at the line
Washington Redskins OC Sean McVay praised QB Robert Griffin III for how he handled the offseason – physically and mentally. “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.” (ESPN )

FF Today's Take: By all accounts, Griffin's knee is no longer a concern, so it is nice to see that McVay is pleased with his ability to process the new offensive system. While he is a poor bet to run near as much as he did as a rookie in 2012, RG3 is still a great bet to finish among the top 5-8 quarterbacks with the best supporting cast he's had entering his third season.
Texans asking price for the No. 1 pick     -- Thu May 8 10:31 am --

GM Rick Smith wants to move down
Rick Smith has made it perfectly clear that the Texans are interested in trading the No. 1 overall pick in tonight’s first round. And here’s what the Texans’ general manager is asking for, according to our John McClain. 1. Swap first-round picks this year 2. A second- and third-round pick this year 3. A first-round pick in 2015 (Houston Chronicle)

FF Today's Take: That's a steep price but a trade would also depend on what team is trading up. In 2012, The Redskins paid a big price to move up from pick No. 6 to pick No. 2 to acquire QB Robert Griffin III. The Redskins gave up No. 6, a 2012 second-rounder, plus first-rounders in 2013 and 2014. GM Rick Smith's desire to move out of the top pick will likely push his asking price down as we get closer 8 pm ET.
