|Robert Griffin III runs for season-best 88 yards |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(12/2/13) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III ran a lot of read-option plays in the loss to the Giants, which resulted in Griffin posting season highs in carries (12) and rushing yards (88). He completed 24 of 32 throws for 207 yards and a touchdown, with no interceptions.
Griffin began the game on fire, hitting his first 12 throws. He was 16 of 17 for 149 yards at halftime, including a 19-yard touchdown to tight end Logan Paulsen. But the Redskins couldn't protect Griffin in the second half -- he was sacked five times -- and the offense stalled.
Griffin has accounted for one touchdown over the past two games. He gets the Chiefs in Week 14, his third straight home game.
|Robert Griffin III faces familiar foe's improved defense |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(11/28/13) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has really struggled to get going in his sophomore season, so maybe the sight of one of his favorite foes from his brilliant rookie season can help him get going in Week 13.
The Giants simply couldn't contain Griffin in two contests last season, as he racked up 161 rushing yards and three total touchdowns, with just one turnover. He finished the two games against the Giants with 47 combined Fantasy points, including at least 19 in each.
Unfortunately, the Giants have been pretty stingy against the pass of late, allowing just one of their last five opponents' quarterbacks to top double digits in Fantasy points. They have really shored things up from the start of the season, when each of the first six opponents faced managed to top 20 points.
Griffin has really struggled this season, and this isn't the best matchup for him to get going. Even with his track record against the Giants, Fantasy owners should consider him more of a low-end starting option for Week 13.
|Robert Griffin III held in check vs. 49ers |

(11/25/13) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was suffocated by San Francisco’s stingy defense and was held out of the end zone for the fourth time this season during a Week 12 loss to the 49ers on Monday night.
Griffin sailed a pass over his receiver’s head and was picked off by Donte Whitner on the final play of the first quarter. He was sacked four times and completed only 17 of 27 passes for a season-low 127 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. He also rushed for 22 yards on six carries in a 27-6 defeat.
Griffin has been held under 150 passing yards twice this season. He has 14 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions on the year. He'll look to get back on Sunday night at home against the Giants in Week 13.
|Embattled Robert Griffin III sees season slipping away |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(11/21/13) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is facing criticism for his up-and-down play, as well as his postgame comments Week 11 in which he deflected blame for his game-ending interception, according to the Washington Post.
Receiver Santana Moss told 106.7 The Fan that “if we’re going to win games, we need to win games with our guy saying, ‘At the end of the day, I didn’t make a play,’ regardless of if it wasn’t him, and that’s how I feel."
Moss later backed away from that statement and smoothed things over with Griffin. But it was another low for the embattled Griffin, who's accounted for 14 touchdowns and 14 turnovers while leading Washington to a 3-7 record.
Now Griffin is preparing for a 49ers defense that gives up the seventh-fewest Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, 14.8 per game. Since Week 2, quarterbacks have thrown eight touchdowns against 10 interceptions vs. San Fran.
Griffin might not have his second-best receiver, tight end Jordan Reed, due to a concussion. Either way Griffin is a borderline QB1 at best Monday night.
|Robert Griffin III could build on momentum |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(11/12/13) After a miserable six-game stretch in which he threw six interceptions to just four touchdown passes, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had his best game of the season Week 10 at Minnesota and may be able to build on that performance Week 11 at Philadelphia.
The Eagles rank 31st against the pass, giving up 306.5 yard per game, and have allowed the 11th-most Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Yes, Griffin threw two interceptions against them back in Week 1, but they came in a come-from-behind effort during his first game back from knee surgery. Besides, he also threw for 329 yards and two touchdowns, so at least in terms of Fantasy production, it was a solid performance overall.
The Eagles have averaged 38.0 points in their last two games, so the Redskins will likely have to lean on Griffin's arm just to stay competitive. If you've avoided him in recent weeks, you might want to reassess your options at quarterback. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all rank him in the top five at the position for this week.
|Robert Griffin III is starting to look better as the preseason goes on as he appears on track to be ready for Week 1 against the Eagles. He had surgery to repair a torn ACL, MCL and meniscus in January and as a result is on a limited workout schedule through the month of August. He's not expected to participate in any preseason games but he's been practicing on a regular basis. There's no denying how awesome Griffin was last season, tallying 344 Fantasy points (seventh best among QBs) and averaging 22.9 Fantasy points per week. There is no indication the Redskins will alter their playbook and make RG3 a statuesque pocket passer, meaning it's very possible he remains as productive as he was in 2012. But he also could get hurt again, something Fantasy owners have to consider given what happened to him as a rookie. Your best bet is to consider him a solid No. 1 Fantasy quarterback worth a pick starting in Round 6. If you get him, aim to back him up with a capable passer a few rounds later. That's pretty much all the insurance you'll need to feel safe about owning Griffin in Fantasy play. (Updated 8/6/13) |
