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...

Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay indicates that Griffin, who is now further removed from Jan. 2013 knee surgery, has regained his pre-injury explosiveness, csnwashington.com reports. "I don't think there's any question - he looks explosive," McVay said of the quarterback. "He looks like he is exactly what he was in the 2012 season."

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

Griffin, who has been working without a brace on his surgically-repaired right knee, has displayed sharp on-field mechanics at practice of late, the Daily Progress reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin spent much of last summer recovering from reconstructive knee surgery. This time around, he has been able to focus on football, which is a good thing, given that he heads into the 2014 campaign with a new coach and offensive system. Moreover, the team added wideouts DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts to the mix this offseason and Griffin will no doubt benefit from the reps he'll be able to gain with them (and the rest of the offense) in the coming months.
Griffin confirmed Wednesday that coach Mike Shanahan has decided to shut him down for the last three games of the season, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

As a result, the Redskins plan to start Kirk Cousins at quarterback down the stretch. At 3-10, coach Mike Shanahan indicated that he elected shut down Griffin in order to make sure that the team's franchise QB is healthy heading into the offseason. Assuming no unexpected short-term developments, it looks like the next regular season action Griffin will see is in Week 1 of the 2014 campaign.
Not only is Griffin unlikely to start Sunday, he is also expected to be inactive for the Redskins' matchup with the Falcons, Jeff Darlington of NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Darlington's report notes that Redskins players were informed that Rex Grossman will serve as the backup behind Kirk Cousins on Sunday, so though the Redskins have still not officially announced their plans, signs continue to point to him not playing in Week 15. It seems likely that head coach Mike Shanahan will address his quarterback situation and provide some clarification following Wednesday's practice.
Griffin's teammate, Kirk Cousins, is reportedly in line to start at quarterback for the Redskins on Sunday against the Falcons, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With the Redskins 3-10, coach Mike Shanahan hinted Monday that the team may sit Griffin (who suffered a serious knee injury last January) for the last three games of the season, with an eye toward keeping the quarterback (who has been 24 sacked times in the past five games) healthy for the offseason. Such a move has yet to be confirmed by the Redskins officially, but we'd expect the team to clarify the situation later Wednesday, in any case.
Coach Mike Shanahan declined to name the Redskins' starting quarterback (between Griffin or Kirk Cousins) for Sunday's game against the Falcons, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports.
Griffin completed 12-of-26 passes for 164 yards, with one touchdown and one interception Sunday against the Chiefs, while adding 29 rushing yards on four carries, before being pulled in the fourth quarter in favor of Kirk Cousins.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Redskins as a whole were awful Sunday, finding themselves down 17-0 after the first quarter and 38-10 at halftime. Griffin couldn't get anything going all day and while he did throw a touchdown to tight end Logan Paulsen, it was only enough to pull them to within 24 points at the time. Griffin has struggled to produce recently in the passing game, averaging just 163 passing yards in the last three games, with two touchdowns and two interceptions in that span. He'll look to bounce back in Week 15 at Atlanta, although it's tough to hold much optimism, given his recent performances.

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.
