Schefter: Redskins bench RG3 in favor of Colt McCoy

Wednesday, November 26, 2014, 2:21am

Adam Schefter, Facebook - [Full Article]

Washington is planning to start Colt McCoy over Robert Griffin III on Sunday at Indianapolis, per a team source.
While Griffin is not a part of Washington's plan for Sunday's game, he still appears to be a significant part of the Redskins' long-term plan, per another source.

Yet right now, Washington is hitting the reset button, though it might not last long, a source cautioned.

Fantasy Impact:

McCoy has played a game and a half of football this season, relieving Kirk Cousins in the second half of Week 7 against the Titans. In that game he threw for 128 yards, which included a 70-yard touchdown to Pierre Garcon. He started the following week in Dallas, throwing for 299 yards and an interception, while also rushing for 16 yards and a touchdown. More importantly, the Redskins beat the Cowboys, 20-17. The thing that jumps out about McCoy is his YPA, which is 10.2 on 42 attempts. This is a rather small sample size, but it is an encouraging sign for McCoy backers. The move may be good for DeSean Jackson, who had six catches for 136 yards in McCoy's start against Dallas. Jackson had a nice Week 8 game with Griffin against the Vikings, but only caught six passes for 74 yards combined in the last two games. McCoy doesn't have a bad matchup the rest of the way.

Scouting Report

Week 7 - Cousins vs. Tennessee
Kirk Cousins put up decent fantasy numbers last week but continues to struggles with interceptions. Cousins threw for 354 yards and two TDs but added three more INTs to his total for the season. He has seven INTs his last three games with four coming against the Giants a couple of weeks ago.

This week it's the Titans who rank 18th in allowing fantasy points to QBs, so it's not a bad matchup. But, Cousins ranks as just a QB2 this week on our list. After this week, it's two more tough matchups with Dallas and Minnesota, which are ranked third and second in terms of fantasy points allowed to QBs. Cousins is a risky play, especially if your league gives you negative points for turnovers.
