Robert Griffin: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Speaking at the NFL combine, coach Jay Gruden noted that he anticipates Griffin being Washington's starter at QB heading into the 2015 season. "Robert ended the season as our starter and we anticipate that going forward," Gruden indicated Wednesday. "He'll be the No. 1 guy."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Following a 2014 campaign in which the team started three signal-callers –- Griffin, Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy -- Gruden has for now, at least, quieted a potential QB controversy leading up to the 2015 campaign. Per NFL.com, the decision to stick with Griffin seems largely tied to the team's "large-scale investment" in the QB, along with a lack of viable alternatives at this stage, either in-house or in free agency. Griffin is coming off a 2014 season in which he threw for 1,694 yards, to go along with just four touchdowns and six interceptions in nine games. He also ran 38 times for 176 yards and a TD in that span.
Griffin (shoulder) completed 27-of-41 passes for 336 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. He also rushed six times for 19 yards and a touchdown, but lost a fumble.

Griffin (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin's activity level in practice was capped this week due to a sore shoulder, but he'll brush off the concern with a heated divisional matchup on tap. He'll attempt to exploit a Cowboys defense that has been yielding 276.6 passing yards per contest and seven touchdown throws to signal callers since their Week 11 bye, while allowing a league-worst four rushing touchdowns to QBs on the season.
Griffin (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin was limited at Wednesday's practice due to the shoulder injury, but head coach Jay Gruden said at the time his setback was not serious, and Griffin's official Week 17 injury designation confirms that. Griffin has not played poorly the last two weeks, but with just one touchdown and 57 running yards over that span, his fantasy contributions have not been significant.
Griffin (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday due to a sprained right shoulder, which coach Jay Gruden doesn't consider a "serious deal."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While Griffin's activity Wednesday included some throwing, Gruden said that the quarterback "was just a little sore," with an all-encompassing evaluation on his Week 17 availability to occur Friday. Consequently, if owners have turned to Griffin in pursuit of fantasy glory, his status will be known well in advance of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Griffin completed 16 of 23 passes for 220 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 27-24 win over the Eagles.

Griffin will start against Philadelphia on Saturday, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin is an intriguing fantasy consideration in light of his encouraging performance against the Giants last week, but there's a low floor here, too. The Philadelphia defense is weak in the secondary, but possesses a strong pass rush, and the latter point could be a big problem, given Griffin's poor pocket awareness. On the other hand, if Griffin manages to stay upright, he could create some big plays. It's a textbook boom-or-bust situation.
Coach Jay Gruden indicated Monday that Washington's plan is to start Griffin on Saturday against the Eagles.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Per Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Gruden doesn't expect Colt McCoy -- who aggravated his neck injury Sunday -- to suit up this weekend, which would set the stage for Kirk Cousins to serve as Griffin's backup Saturday. While Griffin is a tough player to rely on from a fantasy perspective these days, he'll take aim at an Eagles defense that has allowed an average of 257.4 passing yards per game to date and just surrendered three receiving TDs to Dallas' Dez Bryant on Sunday night.

2015

2014

It might take a leap of faith to rank Griffin so highly after he followed up his late-season 2012 ACL tear with a disappointing and drama-filled 2013 season, but there are at least a few reasons to expect him to enjoy a breakout season in 2014. The most obvious is that his health should be improved now that he's had an entire season for his knee to recover, and his rhythm ought to be sharper as a result. The second is that the Redskins greatly improved their offense in the offseason, adding receivers DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts. Griffin has one of the best deep balls in the league, so the addition of Jackson, potentially the league's best deep threat, could pay major dividends. They even added a potential upgrade at right tackle in third-round pick Morgan Moses. The third reason is that Mike Shanahan's replacement, Jay Gruden, oversaw an aggressive passing game in Cincinnati, turning the generally unimpressive Andy Dalton into a 33-touchdown player in 2013. With his rare rushing skills, Griffin won't need 33 passing touchdowns to be a smashing fantasy hit in 2014. A healthy Griffin throwing to Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed in a pass-happy offense has the look of a profitable fantasy situation.

2013

There's probably no quarterback more difficult to project than Griffin. We know players have recently been able to return from torn knees at a faster rate than ever before, but we've never seen it with a quarterback who relies so much on his legs. While Griffin is certainly a remarkable passer, a huge portion of his yards came off of play-action, read-option looks, and those were set up by his prowess as a runner. Actually, he turned in the highest passer rating off of play-action looks in the history of the NFL. If defenses don't fear his legs, though, they won't respect him as a runner, and that could drastically change the nature of the Redskins' offense. As it stands right now, it's a safe bet Griffin won't match his 2012 rushing numbers. The Redskins coaches will hold him back, at least early in the season, so the quarterback's versatility won't be such a major factor in his success. If Griffin is going to remain among fantasy football's elite, he'll need to beat defenses through the air. He did it last year to the tune of a 65.6 percent completion rate and 8.1 YPA, but again, we'll need to see how the nature of Washington’s offense might shift.

2012

Even if Griffin struggles in real football terms as a rookie, his likely high pass-attempt volume in Washington should result in big aggregate numbers. Despite enduring the clownish play of Rex Grossman and John Beck, the Redskins voluntarily subjected themselves to 591 pass attempts in 2011, which ranked as the fifth-highest total in the league. Given the team’s additions of free-agent wide receivers Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan and the late-season 2011 emergence of running backs Roy Helu and Evan Royster, Griffin will also have better weapons with which to work. With a deep ball that should be among the league’s best from Day 1 and 4.41 speed, Griffin should make good use of those weapons, especially down field. Moreover, a significant number of those pass attempts will be converted to scramble runs by Griffin, which figures to be a huge aid to his fantasy value given that he ran for 2,254 yards and 33 touchdowns in 41 games at Baylor – and that’s with the NCAA subtracting yardage for sacks.
