The third-year quarterback acknowledged that DeSean Jackson, Andre Roberts, Pierre Garçon and Jordan Reed figure to see fewer targets in 2014. But that, he added, should provide plenty of motivation for the receiving corps.
“These guys know that there are some weapons around them on the field, so they don’t have all that pressure on them,” Griffin told Grant and Danny on Monday morning. “But they also know when they get the ball, they are going to have to do something with it because there’s no guarantee that the ball is going to come to them 10, 15 times a game. They might only get three or four of five shots a game, and they have to make the most it.”
With a plethora of receivers to throw to and a strong running game, there are going to be a few disappointing fantasy performances in the Washington WR corps throughout the season. Garcon isn't likely to lead the league in targets, while Jackson is no longer the clear WR1 on his team, as he was in Philadelphia. Owners should think twice before drafting either player based on his 2013 output.
