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 | Robert Griffin critiqued (Wed Jul 1, 03:29 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's decision-making, fundamentals, footwork and his inability to find open receivers are all reasons why Griffin isn't good enough to be successful in the NFL, in the opinion of ESPN NFL analyst Mark Brunell.

Our View: The franchise seems reluctant but resigned to starting Griffin to begin the season, and well, we'll see where it goes from there. He doesn't seem to have the support of head coach Jay Gruden, and only the repeated failures of once coveted backup Kirk Cousins has kept Griffin atop the depth chart. Colt McCoy could be the caretaker for this offense again yet. All of it adds up to every Washington fantasy option inspiring little enthusiasm at current ADP.

Washington | Griffin 'excellent every day' (Mon Jun 22, 09:16 PM) - Zac Boyer, from the Washington Times, reports that quarterback Robert Griffin III has been impressing his head coach Jay Gruden this offseason. I think the transition for him into a new system last season was a little bit rocky for all of us, Gruden said. But when you have the same system going in for year two, I think hes going to get better. You can see the progress every day that he makes, and its exciting to watch. It really is, with all three quarterbacks, actually. Robert, especially, is doing an excellent job every day. Hes not perfect, nobody is. Im not perfect. But hes really striving to be perfect, and hes doing a great job of working.

Our View: The good news keeping coming out about Griffin's progress this offseason. We'll see if he can continue looking good when the pads come on in training camp. Griffin needs to make quicker decisions in the pocket, and he needs to be safer when scrambling so he can stay healthy this season and get his career back on track.
