Summary

Washington's shocking decision to stand pat at the quarterback position gave Griffin a third lease on life; but time has now expired. Griffin was tentative and ineffective throughout the preseason, and the rift between Griffin and his coaches appears to have re-opened. He's been benched in favor of Kirk Cousins. Given Griffin's $16mm injury guarantee, it's hard to envision Washington playing Griffin at all this season. Whether he's released or traded remains in question; but it will take a change of scenery to reignite his dimming fantasy value. (August 31)

Latest News

Redskins | Robert Griffin III to be examined (Thu Sep 3, 01:00 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (head) will be examined by a neurologist Thursday, Sept. 3, or Friday, Sept. 4. That exam could mean more about when the team might release him rather than when he would play again.

Our View: It's amazing how quickly things have escalated, but really the writing has been on the wall for some time. Jay Gruden never seemed to have a plan for Griffin, and his scheme has been a bad fit. Add in Griffin's own recalcitrance when it comes to adjusting his own style and this was always a bad combination. If Griffin is cut, any team had better have a very long conversation with him about expectations, and then they would be wise to fit the scheme to the player, not force the player into the scheme.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins named starter (Mon Aug 31, 09:24 AM) - Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was named the starting quarterback Monday, Aug. 31, over QB Robert Griffin III, according to a source.

Our View: Cousins is a turnover machine, but the team seems intent to move on from Robert Griffin III. Over 11 games, Cousins has thrown 16 interceptions and lost four fumbles. Essentially, he commits a turnover once every 29 snaps according to ESPN Stats & Info. Fantasy owners should stay away from Cousins.

Redskins | No decision on Washington QB starter (Sat Aug 29, 03:40 PM) - Washington Redskins QBs Kirk Cousins and Robert Griffin III still don't know who will start Week 1, according to a source. It was previously reported that Cousins was expected to start Week 1 over Griffin.

Our View: There are plenty of reporters around that team who indicate that Kirk Cousins is going to start in Week 1 of the regular season. It's seems to be up in the air right now, but we won't be shocked if Cousins is the starter for Washington when the regular season gets here.

Redskins | Robert Griffin can practice (Sat Aug 29, 03:16 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is allowed to practice without contact following tests, according to a source.

Our View: Griffin is on shaky ground right now. Reports are coming in from all over the place indicating that he's out as the starter and Kirk Cousins is in. We'll see when he can get back into action after this latest injury.

Redskins | Robert Griffin not cleared to play (Fri Aug 28, 07:09 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has not been cleared to play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, and will be reevaluated in one to two weeks.

Our View: This keeps getting odder and odder. Griffin is already down to a QB3 for us and we really dislike the whole situation in Washington. We're not surprised he's concussed though, because we have eyes and watched him get hammered for a quarter and a half behind a terrible offensive line.
