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 works with starters (Fri Jul 29, 06:31 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III received all of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice Friday, July 29. QB Josh McCown worked with the second-team offense during practice.

Our View: Griffin is clearly going to be the starting quarterback for the Browns even if the team isn't coming out and saying it. He's worth a pick in deeper leagues and 2QB leagues, but Griffin could go undrafted in typical redraft leagues. Hue Jackson could help turn his career around, but we want to see some affirmative signs of that before we invest in Griffin. Obviously the stock of players like Gary Barnidge, Corey Coleman, Duke Johnson, and Josh Gordon depend a bit on Griffin, but if he falters, McCown might be the best backup in the league right now.

Browns | RG3 not being handed starting job (Thu Jul 28, 01:46 AM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III won't be handed the starting job, although all signs point to him winning the gig. 'No, it's still a ways away in my mind, but I feel good about where we are and I feel good about the process that we've been in for those guys,' head coach Hue Jackson said. Griffin is trying to beat out veteran QB Josh McCown, as well as journeyman QB Austin Davis and rookie QB Cody Kessler.

Our View: Of course he's not being handed the job, the Footballguys update writer said sarcastically. Certainly he should see stiff competition from such renowned signal callers as Josh McCown, Austin Davis and rookie Cody Kessler, he wrote while rolling his eyes so hard they fell out of his head. Joking aside, if Griffin can't win the job and loses to this group of lovable mutts, he should consider another job. Griffin should be the QB1 in camp though no better than a QB3 on your fantasy roster.

Browns | RG3 working on pocket presence (Tue Jul 19, 10:01 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III has worked hard on his pocket presence over the past several years, including during this spring under head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton. In spring practices he worked inside and out of the pocket, too.

Our View: Griffin was broken physically and mentally in Washington. He fought back from knee problems, but he couldn't shake the timidity that he showed under pressure after he was hurt. We'll see if a fresh start in Cleveland helps RG3 play better under duress.
