Redskins QB Robert Griffin III cleared by doctors to start


Redskins QB Robert Griffin III cleared by doctors to start

Last week, the Redskins' team doctor had the final say on the playing status of quarterback Robert Griffin III @RGIII, and he gave the explosive rookie the thumbs down. This week, it's thumbs up. Griffin has been cleared by the team doctor -- the last hurdle in his comeback after suffering a sprained LCL in his right knee on Dec. 9 -- and will start Sunday versus the Philadelphia Eagles. The decision was pretty much assumed considering Griffin practiced in full all week and handled all of the first-team snaps after handling no such snaps last week.

Fantasy Analysis:

And you're starting him, right? Right. The matchup is plenty favorable, and I expect Griffin to be his normal self, running his usual offense and doing what he does at full capacity on Sunday. He is an easy QB1. If you're playing for a league title in Week 16, RG3 has likely gotten you this far; a one-week absence isn't a good enough reason to suddenly turn your back and get cute.
