Gruden names RGIII starter for 2015-- Wed Feb 18 4:45 pm --
Matt Cavanaugh will be quarterbacks coach
Despite a tumultuous third NFL season in which he missed significant time because of injury, returned and got benched, then was re-inserted into the lineup for the final two games, Robert Griffin III will enter the 2015 campaign as the Washington Redskinsí starting quarterback, Coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday.(Washington Post)
FF Today's Take:Gruden also said he'd like to see improvement from Griffin who is coming off his worse season as a pro (1694-4-6). Griffin was benched after Week 12 and there was some speculation that the Redskins would pursue other options at quarterback in 2015. He'll be a QB2 in re-draft leagues this summer.
RG3 expected to start Week 16-- Mon Dec 15 4:20 pm --
FF Today's Take:Not that it will matter to most owners playing in their league's championship games, but Griffin looked as good as he has all season in Week 15 versus the Giants. The third-year quarterback completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 236 yards and a touchdown while running for 46 more yards. Were it not for a highly questionable fumble call in the end zone, RG3 could have also added a rushing score. However, with Washington's offensive line protecting poorly, he could be in for a long day on Saturday against the Eagles.
RG3 could be in line for another start-- Mon Dec 8 4:05 pm --
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.
