Robert Griffin III (2)

Own Robert Griffin III? Not sure what to do with him this week? Well, you aren’t alone. Even us so called “experts” struggle with playing hurt players, especially during the playoffs. You just can’t predict how much a hurt player will play, and you can’t predict if a single hit will end up taking that player out of the game… then you have to factor in how accurate and up-to-date the available news is on that player and his health. Is the coaching staff misleading the media to help gain an advantage heading into kickoff? All these things are tough to account for when trying to decide whether or not to start an injured player, and again, this is especially the case during playoff time. Ok, so what’s the latest on RG3? Well, Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan won’t indicated until Sunday how effective RG3 will/can be on his sprained knee, but early indications are pointing to RG3 playing – at some capacity. And, because he was limited today (Thursday), it really is a guessing game right up until an hour or two before kickoff. So, that means there is no easy answer here, and ultimately, you’re going to need to stay all over multiple news wires, and the FFX Forums, if you plan to use RG3 this week. I will leave you with this… I don’t see RG3 playing at all if he isn’t going to be mobile enough to be a stud-like passer in Week 15… if playing, and we should all know Sunday morning if he is in fact playing, I won’t be sitting RG3 in any of the leagues. Stay all over the news on this one, RG3 owners!

    Hey Smitty,

    This is “GoPack”, from that “other” site :) ….

    Would you not start a healthy Stafford over him? I have both…

    Man, just can’t decide. Hopin I don’t get “Bryce Browned” again!

    Take care and thanks as always for all your hard work!

    Hey GoPack:

    Sorry I didn’t see your comment until now, but clearly RG3 wasn’t a “go” for Sunday, so your decision was made for you. For now, early word is RG3 won’t play until he is 100 percent. We shall see when that is.
