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 | Robert Griffin III regressing (Sat May 23, 06:25 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III can't blame his regression on injuries, according to head coach Mike Shanahan. 'I don't think getting hurt has anything to do with it,' Shanahan told WJFK in Washington Friday. May 22. 'I think what you do is you rehab yourself and you get better. ... You don't have to have great running ability to run the read-option. You have to be able to know when to slide, when to throw the football away, depending on if you're running or passing,' said Shanahan.

Our View: Things didn't end well for Shanahan in Washington. We feel Griffin is worthy of one more season at the top spot. This is a make-or-break season for him, and he needs to be more consistent, stay healthy and make better/quicker decisions as a passer.

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.
