Depth Chart
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan spent big in order to move up in the draft to select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III and provide Washington with a franchise quarterback to match up against the other talented signal callers in the division. RGIIIís unique talents match up well with Shanahanís version of the west coast offense, which requires quarterbacks to spend plenty of time outside of the pocket, throwing on the run and scrambling for yards on the ground. At Baylor, Griffin was a monster operating out of the shotgun, throwing for 77 touchdowns and rushing for 32 more, but he will need to adapt his game in the NFL. He possesses an outstanding arm and blazing speed but the odds of him duplicating the season Carolinaís Cam Newton put together as a rookie seem slim. Griffin doesnít have Newtonís size and strength meaning he wonít be his teamís goal line back like Newton. The Redskins also donít have a true number one wideout like Newton had in Steve Smith but they do have a deep rotation of receivers that could be productive. If only the team had that type of depth along the offensive line, which has been a major concern and remains so heading into 2012. RGIII is an outstanding dynasty league prospect with a huge upside but fantasy owners are likely best served having him as a bench option in 2012.

Gruden still thinks RG3 has what it takes     -- Fri Jul 31 5:45 pm --

Once prolific QB hoping to rediscover offensive production
As Jay Gruden sees it, for four years, Robert Griffin III has been a prisoner of the expectations around him. The idea now is to set him free. Griffin wasn't very good last year. That much is impossible to argue. But neither were the Washington Redskins. "We can't put all the pressure on the quarterback," Gruden said. "There's only a few quarterbacks in the league that can handle that, and those guys are gonna be first-ballot Hall of Famers. The rest of them, they need help. They need help with the running game. [They need] some quick-element throws where the receivers do the work for them, screens, good play-action shot plays, good strong defense. If we win 17-13, who gives a (expletive)? We just gotta win." (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: RG3's fantasy totals have taken a hit with each passing season. His name still carries some weight but owners who've had him in either of the last two years might be tired of being burned by the former standout rookie.
