You only need to look back to his rookie season to see the fantasy upside of Robert Griffin III. Griffin used his legs and arm to put together a rookie year that everyone thought would be par for the course. Griffin can throw for accuracy and, as an added bonus to fantasy owners, pick up yards on the ground.
Outside of his rookie season, Griffin hasn't been very good. Injuries haven't helped his cause either, but he is working to bring it all back together. It is worth noting that Griffin hasn't run the ball as often or effectively as many thought he would by this point in his career. He is also been sloppy with the ball at times and has taken hits when he really didn't need to. The Skins TE position is also banged up after losing Logan Paulsen and Niles Paul for the season which leaves oft-injured Jordan Reed as the only legit threat at the position.
Griffin is ranked 21st on our QB list and is another QB2 option with possible upside to consider late in drafts. RG3 averaged just 12 fantasy points a game in the six games he started and finished last season, so while there is hope he will improve, there are much safer options.
