Bengals OC Jay Gruden finalizing deal to be Redskins new head coach

After spending the last three seasons as offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals, Jay Gruden will be taking over the head coaching position for the Washington Redskins. GM Bruce Allen has known Jay Gruden for many years and he was widely considered the front runner for the HC position since Mike Shanahan was fired.

The Bengals have made the postseason each of the last three years under Gruden, even with the inconsistent play of Andy Dalton. Gruden will have a lot of weapons on offense and will be expected to put the team in contention for the NFC East right away.

Fantasy Analysis:

We'll keep an eye on the moves Gruden makes this offseason before we write the book on the fantasy value of the offensive players in Washington. Gruden is expected to work closely with Robert Griffin III @RGIII to design the offense best suited to his talents, but they'll need to upgrade the WR position across from Garcon and fix the O-line to give him a chance. Probably the biggest thing the Redskins could do to take pressure off of Griffin next season is to address the myriad problems on defense in the draft and free agency.
