2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The conventional wisdom says Robert Griffin III rushed back too quickly from his torn ACL injury, which led to a decline in his production from his rookie season. The word out of OTAs is that Griffin has flashed his dynamic 2012 form and looked “extremely explosive.” In 2012, Griffin threw for 3,200 yards with 20 touchdowns and five interceptions while also rushing for 826 yards with another seven touchdowns. In 2013, his rushing yards were nearly cut in half and he failed to score a rushing touchdown, while also regressing as a passer. Griffin spent the offseason working on his mechanics with quarterback instructor Terry Shea. Mike and Kyle Shanahan are no longer in Washington, and Robert Griffin III will now work with offensive-minded head coach Jay Gruden and new offensive coordinator Sean McVay. In addition, the team brought in more dynamic weapons for their young quarterback, signing former Eagle DeSean Jackson and former Cardinal Andre Roberts in free agency. All signs are pointing to a great fantasy football season from RGIII and the fickle masses just may forget how valuable of a weapon he was in 2012 after his disappointing 2013. Griffin is still one of the most dynamic runners in the league and Gruden has stated that while he may not use the read option often, he won't necessarily ask Griffin not to run the ball when the opportunity arises. Any potential drop off in Griffin's rushing production should be offset by an uptick in his passing statistics. Combine Griffin's offseason work and health, Gruden's offensive mind and the influx of talent in the passing game, and it's hard to imagine Washington's passing offense not taking a leap forward in 2014.

News From The Past 90 Days
RG3 expected to start Week 16
Colt McCoy (neck) likely to be inactive
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 15, 4:20 pm

Washington Redskins
Washington HC Jay Gruden said the plan is to start Robert Griffin III Saturday against the Eagles. (Washington Redskins on Twitter)

FFToday'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.


Injury RG3 could be in line for another start
Colt McCoy suffered neck strain in Week 14
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 8, 4:05 pm

Washington HC Jay Gruden said if Colt McCoy can't play Sunday against the New York Giants, then Robert Griffin III would get the start at QB. (Redskins on Twitter)

FFToday'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.


Washington "done" with RG3?
Local paper believes team "must part ways" with QB in 2015
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 4, 7:20 pm

Washington Redskins
Although HC Jay Gruden had doubts about Robert Griffin III before coming to Washington in January, Griffin was his unquestioned starter from the offseason workouts through training camp to Week 1 of this season. After working with Griffin for more than 10 months, however, Gruden is now done with him, according to multiple people within the organization. Through three preseason games and five starts in the regular season, Gruden has seen enough to realize that Griffin is at best a long-term project as a pocket passer. (Washington Post)

FFToday's Take: There has been plenty of speculation to support the notion that RG3 may be nearing his end in Washington and this only serves to further it. Griffin's inability to develop as a pocket passer and off-field comments haven't helped his cause in keeping his job either. Washington is on track to get a top-10 pick in next year's draft, so look for plenty of reports of a trade-up in the coming months as the team likely prepares to select another "franchise quarterback".


Redskins expected to start Colt McCoy
RGIII headed to the bench
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 25, 11:30 pm

Washington Redskins
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)

FFToday'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.


Injury Jay Gruden to decide on RG3 tomorrow
Colt McCoy to start if Griffin III can't play
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 22, 7:00 pm

Washington Redskins
Jay Gruden said Wednesday that he would like to have made a decision on whether Robert Griffin III will play against Dallas following a workout and a medical examination on Thursday morning. While Gruden has told McCoy that he will be the starter on Monday if Griffin is not medically cleared to play, Gruden did say that Griffin is the “wild card” for that game. (Washington Times)

FFToday's Take: Griffin III has upside as a QB2 for the second half of the fantasy season yet inconsistency prevents him from being a reliable starter. He should not be relied upon for Week 8 even if he returns to action. The entire offense could struggle if Colt McCoy is asked to lead the Redskins against the Cowboys.


Injury Colt McCoy to draw Week 8 start
Assuming Robert Griffin III (foot) is unable to return
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 20, 6:55 pm

Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he's not going to rule out a return this week by quarterback Robert Griffin III. But Gruden also made it clear that Griffin still must show a lot in practice before the team declares him ready to start. If he doesn't start, then Gruden said Colt McCoy would do so against Dallas for the teams' Oct. 27 matchup. Griffin has not played since dislocating his left ankle in Week 2. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Griffin's initial optimistic timetable was 8-10 weeks, so a six-week return is highly unlikely. McCoy went 11-for-12 in relief of Kirk Cousins after he was benched at the start of the second half of Washington's Week 7 win over Tennessee. McCoy will likely start against Dallas (Week 8) and Minnesota (Week 9) before the Redskins' bye, possibly allowing RG3 to return in Week 11 versus Tampa Bay.


Injury Griffin III will start when he returns
Cousins is winless in four starts
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Oct 15, 6:30 pm

Washington Redskins
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III returned to the practice field Wednesday and participated in individual drills for the first time since suffering a dislocated left ankle Sept. 14. Coach Jay Gruden said Griffin will once again be the team’s starter upon his return, whenever that might be. In the portion of practice open to the media, the third-year quarterback stretched with the team and threw passes to wide receivers alongside the team’s other quarterbacks. Griffin’s accuracy varied but the ankle did not appear to limit his movement. (Washington Times)

FFToday's Take: Kirk Cousins flashed some fantasy potential initially but costly turnovers have contributed to the team's four-game losing streak. RG3 is at least another week away and remains a wild card to help fantasy owners when he returns.
