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 )

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.

Washington is planning to start Colt McCoy over Griffin on Sunday at Indianapolis, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

According to Schefter's source, Washington is hitting the reset button, although it might not last long. The team apparently still views him as part of the long-term plan, but after Griffin's performance against San Francisco in which he was sacked five times and threw for just 106 yards, McCoy is believed to be an upgrade in the short term. The team is expected to make the announcement official Wednesday when coach Jay Gruden meets with reporters.
Coach Jay Gruden indicated Monday that there's "every intent" for Griffin to start Sunday's game against the Colts.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin is coming off a rocky Week 12 outing, in which he completed 11-of-19 passes for 106 yards in Washington's 17-13 loss to the 49ers, but at this stage, the 3-8 team has no immediate plans to make a QB switch, though such an outcome down the road can't be precluded.

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.
