Quarterback Robert Griffin III will start the Washington Redskins' opener on "Monday Night Football" Sept. 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles, sources close to the quarterback said Wednesday. Griffin still is scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews on Thursday night, before Washington plays at Tampa Bay in the teams' preseason finale, to get medical clearance. (ESPN)
FF Today's Take:This has been the plan all along and it appears RGIII will be on the field for fantasy owners in Week 1. He still comes with a good deal of injury risk giving his style of play but as long as he's on the field, he holds QB1 value.
