CLE QB Robert Griffin III - Week 17, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Pittsburgh
Robert Griffin III will get yet another chance to play bad football this week, as he’s been named the starter after being medically cleared to play. In four starts, Griffin has amazingly not thrown a touchdown pass for Cleveland, although he has ran in two scores. He also hasn’t surpasses 200 passing yards in any of his starts.
Not only is he an awful choice, but he gets a pretty tough matchup this week against the Steelers. Pittsburgh has allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season.
The only chance for RGIII to have success is if the Steelers bench the majority of their starters, which is possible. But there’s really no reason to play Griffin this week in fantasy.
