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 perfect Friday (Fri Jul 31, 08:06 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III did not throw an incompletion during team drills Friday, July 31. Griffin appears to be going through his progressions and throwing to secondary targets during some the snaps.

Our View: Better news for Griffin here. He opened up camp with a bad performance, but he had a bounce-back day on Friday. We'll see if he can perform at a high level when starting in the preseason.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III shaky Thursday (Thu Jul 30, 10:14 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was inconsistent during full-team workouts Thursday, July 30, throwing high to his targets at times.

Our View: This is not what you wanted to hear if you're a Griffin supporter. He seems to be in a make-or-break year with Washington. If he falters, then Washington could put in Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy at quarterback. We'll see if he can shake off the rust and start looking better as camp goes on.
