2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

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...

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

Head coach Jay Gruden said following Friday's practice that the Redskins "have every intention" to start Griffin (ankle) in Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin made it through practice this week without setback, and it appears he will start Sunday for the first time since Week 2. Gruden did not provide any details regarding Griffin's usage this week, but fantasy owners should be aware that he will be facing a Vikings squad that has allowed opposing quarterbacks to run for just 11 yards on 14 carries through eight games.
Griffin (ankle) was a full practice participant Thursday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. In the aftermath, coach Jay Gruden conceded that Griffin has been "cleared from the doctors," according to Albert Breer of NFL Network, but Gruden wants to ensure the quarterback is mentally ready to play.

While Griffin split first-team reps with Colt McCoy during Wednesday's practice, Gruden relayed that Griffin handled the majority of drills "with the ones" Thursday, which puts him on track to start Sunday, barring a setback. Griffin has one more opportunity to appease Gruden's mind in advance of Sunday's game in Minnesota, but if current trends hold true, the franchise cornerstone will likely be under center shortly after the 1:00 PM ET kickoff.
Mike Jones of the Washington Post relays that Griffin (ankle) -- who practiced fully Wednesday -- looked sharp during individual and one-on-one portions of Thursday's practice.

Griffin (ankle) will start for the Redskins on Sunday against the Vikings, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin participated fully in Wednesday's practice, and has been able to log work on the practice field for just over a week now. He emerged from Wednesday's session feeling good, and will therefore take over the reigns as the starter, delegating Colt McCoy to a backup role. His practice reps Thursday and Friday should be almost exclusively with the first-team offense, but we'll confirm that as the week rolls along.

Since returning to practice last Wednesday, Griffin's rapid progress is aiding the belief that he'll be able to play Sunday at Minnesota. However, coach Jay Gruden called Wednesday's practice a "glorified walkthrough," while pointing to Thursday and Friday as the "key" to unlock active status in Week 9, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, though, Griffin will split first-ream reps with Colt McCoy, whose performance Monday in Dallas -- 25-of-30 passing for 299 yards, one interception, and one rushing touchdown -- provides a fair fallback option for Gruden, if Griffin doesn't receive clearance.
Griffin (ankle) is "very, very, very close" to being cleared for game action, according to coach Jay Gruden, the Washington Post reports.

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.
