Summary

Robert Griffin's 2013 season didn't go as planned, but that shouldn't deter fantasy owners from betting on him in 2014. Griffin rushed back from a torn ACL and was clearly never 100%, particularly when it came to trusting his legs. Mounting losses fostered tension with Coach Mike Shanahan, culminating in Griffin's benching and ultimately Shanahan's firing. Griffin gets a new lease on life with head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden managed to turn a middling talent like Andy Dalton into a 4,000-yard, 27-TD passer...imagine what he can do with Griffin. Combine that with the addition of DeSean Jackson and you've got every reason to think Griffin will bounce back into the top tier of fantasy QB1s. (May 24)

Redskins | Robert Griffin III dinged in exhibition game (Tue Aug 19, 11:07 AM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (thigh) is dealing with a bruised thigh suffered in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18. Griffin said it is 'nothing to worry about' but that he must improve his sliding. He was hit hard a few times after the end of some scrambles and took a cumbersome attempt at a slide. 'When he gets out of the pocket, he needs to protect himself,' said head coach Jay Gruden.

Our View: Griffin's involvement in the running game is going to trend down under Jay Gruden, and this won't help matters. The hope is that Gruden's added passing game efficiency and DeSean Jackson's added playmaking ability will compensate for the running game stat losses and keep Griffin among the QB1s.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins outperforming RGIII? (Mon Aug 11, 02:55 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was the best quarterback on the team during the Redskins-Patriots joint practices, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. Reiss said Cousins had better mechanics, was more decisive with his ball release and ran the offense better than QB Robert Griffin III.

Our View: Judging by the way the Shanaclan pined for Cousins all year, he might be a better practice player than game player. Griffin's lack of "wow factor" early in camp isn't encouraging, but we won't think about moving him down unless he stays in a malaise through the preseason.
