BAL QB Robert Griffin III - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Pittsburgh Steelers

Robert Griffin III looks like he'll be starting Tuesday night, but it's really risky to bank on him against the Steelers. The Steelers defense ranks first in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this year, and the game has already been moved three times. Don't risk it, and come up with a more reliable plan at QB this week if possible.

BAL QB Robert Griffin III - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Robert Griffin III will get the start this week against the Steelers with the Ravens having locked up the number one seed in the conference. However, he’s a long way from being a reliable fantasy option, and it’s not a great matchup against a Steelers team that is tied for fourth in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. In a tough matchup, it’s too risky to bank on him in the championship game. Sit him.

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.

CLE QB Robert Griffin III - Week 16, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Robert Griffin III - Week 16 vs. San Diego
Robert Griffin III hasn't thrown a touchdown as a member of the Browns in his three starts this season. He's rushed for a score in consecutive weeks, but that isn't always a reliable method of scoring. Griffin was so bad last week, Hue Jackson wasn't sure if he wanted to continue starting him. But then he remembered none of his quarterbacks are good.

This week, Griffin will probably struggle against the tough Chargers defense. Griffin would likely struggle on any given week, but a date with San Diego's defense is especially worrisome.

If you made it to the fantasy title game this week, then you made enough smart decisions to know you shouldn't start RGIII.

CLE QB Robert Griffin III - Week 15, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Buffalo
Robert Griffin III looked terrible last week in his return to the starting lineup. He completed just 43 percent of his passes for an ugly 104 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. He did add 31 yards and a touchdown on the ground, making up for his miserable passing stats.

This week, Griffin faces a Bills defense that has played well in their four games since the bye week. In that stretch, Buffalo has allowed just 203 passing yards per game and five touchdowns.

Considering RGIII's poor play and the Bills' improved pass defense, it's best to just stay away from the Browns' QB this week.

CLE QB Robert Griffin III - Week 14, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Cincinnati
Robert Griffin III will make his return this week after missing most of the season due to injury. You might be intrigued to pick up the quarterback with rushing skills, but this is a huge risk, especially in the fantasy playoffs.

The Bengals aren't exactly a favorable matchup, and RGIII has a long history of getting hurt. Yeah he's cleared to play, but that doesn't guarantee he won't get hurt again. Plus, Browns quarterbacks haven't had much success this season, so there's nothing to indicate Griffin will be different.

Griffin will be an extremely risky play, and ultimately shouldn't be on your fantasy radar.

CLE QB Robert Griffin III - Week 1, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Robert Griffin III - Week 1 vs. Philadelphia
Robert Griffin III took a year off as Washington's No. 3 quarterback last year, and now he's ready to try and recapture the magic of his rookie season. He has a decent situation in Cleveland with rookie Corey Coleman and the athletic QB-turned-WR Terrelle Pryor. Both guys can stretch the field, so expect RGIII to take some deep shots down the field.

For the most part, Griffin played well in the preseason, but we all know it's the regular season that counts. It's difficult to trust any Browns quarterback these days, but there's enough promise in RGIII to make him an interesting play in Week 1. He even has a great matchup against Philadelphia.

Griffin is unpredictable, which is why he should be viewed as a QB2 option this week.
