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 ex...

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.
Griffin entered Sunday's game against the Giants late in the first quarter for the injured Colt McCoy (neck) and completed 18-of-27 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown, while also adding 46 rushing yards on five carries, though he lost a fumble right at the goal-line to cost the Redskins six points at the end of the first half.

2014

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.
