Redskins HC Mike Shanahan refused to commit to QB Robert Griffin as his Week 15 starter after Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. "We'll talk about that later," Shanahan said. "That's with anybody in
any position. We'll look at injuries, we'll look at where we are and
what direction we're going."
Griffin completed just 12 of 26 passes for 164 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT before being yanked for QB Kirk Cousins in the 4th quarter. That decision likely had as much to do with the score as RG3's play. We're fully expecting to see him back under center next weekend. He'll be a risk/reward fantasy opyion in a plus matchup against the Falcons.
Ravens backup QB Robert Griffin III sustained a hairline fracture in his right (throwing) thumb Saturday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Griffin's expected to miss the entire preseason but return for Week 1. The situation obviously has almost no fantasy impact, unless you play preseason DFS.
The Ravens have signed QB Robert Griffin III, according to multiple reports. Griffin's obviously not a challenge to moribund-yet-deeply entrenched starter Joe Flacco. But it's noteworthy that Baltimore picked up RG3 while Ryan Mallett remains on the open market. Mallett backed up Flacco the past 2 seasons after arriving mid-2015. He started 2 games that year and appeared in 6 total (no starts) over the past 2 seasons. It might surprise a lot of folks that Griffin only just turned 28 in February. He obviously has plenty to prove, though, before we can consider him even a dynasty bench candidate at this point -- especially with the Ravens' lackluster pass-catching corps.
The Browns have released QB Robert Griffin, saving nearly $7 million against the 2017 salary cap. RG3 didn't even make it through a game last year before breaking his left shoulder. He returned for the final 4 games but totaled just 696 passing yards with 2 TDs and 2 INTs. Since his impressive 2012 rookie campaign, Griffin has thrown 22 TDs vs. 21 INTs. He'll need to settle for a backup gig on the open market.
Browns QB Robert Griffin (concussion) will start Sunday’s finale against the Steelers. He’s still looking for his 1st passing TD of the season and could get it against a Pittsburgh team with nothing to play for. RG3 remains just a QB2 flier.
Browns QB Robert Griffin has passed through the concussion protocol and will practice on Thursday, according to ESPN's Tony Grossi. HC Hue Jackson suggested earlier this week that he still believes RG3 might be the team's answer at QB, so we'd expect him to get the nod in Sunday's finale against the Steelers.
