Summary

Griffin took the league by storm in his 2012 rookie season but had his career derailed by injuries and a coaching change in Washington. He didn't play at all last season because coach Jay Gruden preferred Kirk Cousins to run his offense. When considering Griffin's injury history, it's quite difficult to predict how he'll play this season. Further muddying the waters is a change of team, a weak receiving corps, and a new head coach in place. On the positive side, the new coach is Hue Jackson, who has shown a knack for designing his offenses to cater to the strengths of his players. Griffin will need to hold off veteran Josh McCown for the starting job. But the comparison of Griffin's ceiling to McCown being a known commodity should provide Griffin with every opportunity to be the Week 1 starter. (May 17)

Browns | Robert Griffin III sacked five times (Fri Aug 26, 11:57 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III was sacked five times in a 30-13 preseason loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, Aug. 26. He completed eight of his 14 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown and ran once for four yards.

Our View: Griffin made good things happen as a downfield passer, but he was also under fire in a way that made observers hold their breath on many plays. The aggressive nature of the Browns offense is good for Griffin's fantasy prospects, but let's keep Josh McCown on our waiver wire speed dial.

Browns | Robert Griffin III plays well (Thu Aug 18, 11:58 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III completed six of his eight passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns and ran three times for 36 yards in a 24-13 preseason loss to the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Aug. 18.

Our View: Griffin had his confidence back on his two touchdown strikes and ability to pick a large chunk of yards as a runner. We should at least be open to him finding something like his old form with an optimistic, offensive-minded head coach, a good offensive line, and a set of weapons that is starting to come together, with Josh Gordon arriving in October.
