Summary

If necessity is truly the mother of invention, Robert Griffin and head coach Jay Gruden will invent a way to peacefully co-exist. Washington's shocking decision to stand pat at the quarterback position gives Griffin a third lease on life. The talent has never been at issue, but injuries combined with an unwillingness to adapt to his new coaches led to Griffin being benched in favor of Colt McCoy last season. Entering this year, Griffin needs a strong camp to secure the starting job. He's got offensive weapons at his disposal, although the team isn't particularly deep beyond the projected starters. As a fantasy commodity, view Griffin as a QB2 with a high ceiling, but don't -- by any means -- count on him as your starter until he delivers a few consistent weeks during the regular season.

Redskins | RG III's benching meant to send message (Fri May 15, 12:23 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was benched last season, in part, to set him up to succeed in 2015. The team wanted him to lose his sense of entitlement to his opportunities.

Our View: It's do or die for Griffin, and Washington really has no other options they can expect to perform well if Griffin fails. Alfred Morris and DeSean Jackson are on shaky ground with respect to the quality of their surrounding offense.

Redskins | Robert Griffin to make strides in '15? (Mon May 11, 04:35 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III should be comfortable enough with the offense to improve this season, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'Everything should come a lot more natural for [Griffin], and hopefully, we see that transition from year one to year two in this system with the terminology and knowing where to go with your footwork and anticipation of getting the ball out quicker,' Gruden said.

Our View: It's a make-or-break year for Griffin. Washington picked up his fifth-year option so they can keep him around in 2016....if he plays up to his potential this year. Fantasy owners should consider Griffin a QB3 with QB1 upside if he can get his career back on track. His current ADP is QB25 (14.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.
