Summary

Robert Griffin's 2013 season didn't go as planned, but that shouldn't deter fantasy owners from betting on him in 2014. Griffin rushed back from a torn ACL and was clearly never 100%, particularly when it came to trusting his legs. Mounting losses fostered tension with Coach Mike Shanahan, culminating in Griffin's benching and ultimately Shanahan's firing. Griffin gets a new lease on life with head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden managed to turn a middling talent like Andy Dalton into a 4,000-yard, 27-TD passer...imagine what he can do with Griffin. Combine that with the addition of DeSean Jackson and you've got every reason to think Griffin will bounce back into the top tier of fantasy QB1s. (May 24)

Redskins | Robert Griffin III regressing? (Thu Aug 28, 05:51 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III isn't playing consistently, according to ESPN analyst and former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski. Jaworski said Griffin must learn to throw from the pocket instead of running so frequently. Jaworski also added that Griffin's mechanics have worsened, including his footwork and throwing.

Our View: Jaworski has never been RG3's biggest fan but he's clearly struggling in the pocket. Of course there are calls for Kirk Cousins, who is a natural pocket passer but his success in the preseason is against guys who my not be playing next week. We still see Griffin as a borderline QB1 or high end QB2 and believe he will improve as the season moves on.

Redskins | No QB controversy in Washington (Mon Aug 25, 07:13 PM) - Washington Redskins QBs Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins aren't involved in any kind of quarterback controversy, according to head coach Jay Gruden. The first-team offense has yet to score a touchdown in the preseason, and Cousins has somewhat outplayed Griffin so far.

Our View: Washington's offense has looked bad this preseason. We'll see if Gruden and company can turn things around in the regular season. It wasn't that long ago that Cam Newton looked terrible in the preseason as a rookie, only to set records in his first season.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III dinged in exhibition game (Tue Aug 19, 11:07 AM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (thigh) is dealing with a bruised thigh suffered in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18. Griffin said it is 'nothing to worry about' but that he must improve his sliding. He was hit hard a few times after the end of some scrambles and took a cumbersome attempt at a slide. 'When he gets out of the pocket, he needs to protect himself,' said head coach Jay Gruden.

Our View: Griffin's involvement in the running game is going to trend down under Jay Gruden, and this won't help matters. The hope is that Gruden's added passing game efficiency and DeSean Jackson's added playmaking ability will compensate for the running game stat losses and keep Griffin among the QB1s.
