HC Jay Gruden called QB Robert Griffin III the Redskins’ starter this offseason and said Monday that he’s already seen a positive difference from Griffin when it comes to film study. Gruden expects to see the same kind of growth from Griffin on the field now that he’s more familiar with the scheme.
“Going into Year 2 in this system should be a big jump, you know,” Gruden said, via the Washington Post. “You’re not really thinking about who’s where, what’s my footwork. Everything should come a lot more natural for you, and hopefully, we see that transition from year one to year two in this system with the terminology and knowing where to go with your footwork and anticipation of getting the ball out quicker. Hopefully, that comes.”
RG3 averaged 12.0 fantasy points in the six games that he started (and finished) in 2014. That's what Blake Bortles averaged as the league's #24 fantasy quarterback. We know Griffin is capable of more, but he hasn't been the same player since his rookie season. Specifically, he's not running the ball as often or as effectively. If Gruden is right and the offense clicks in Year 2, then Griffin could be a nice value in the later rounds.

Week 17 - Griffin vs. Dallas
Robert Griffin III put together another decent, real-life performance, although his fantasy numbers didn't prove a whole lot. He finish with 220 yards throwing and 11 rushing yards but helped the Skins upset the Eagles last week.
Washington ended up with three rushing TDs, including two short ones from fullback Darrel Young. Griffin did throw an INT, his fourth of the season. This week, RGIII gets the Cowboys in what isn't a bad matchup on paper. The 'Boys don't have a ton to play for this week but do plan to play starters according to reports. You have to imagine at some point RGIII will see time against backups, increasing his value a bit. While Dallas doesn't have much to play for, RGIII is playing for a job - somewhere. That's all you can ask from a starting QB in Week 17. He's still a risky play but should see a full game's worth of snaps.
