It sounds like Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is back to his explosive, rookie-year form

Robert Griffin III @RGIII may have been "All In for Week 1" last year, but it's clear that he wasn't his usual self. His still-healing knee and the bulky brace he wore around it held him back as he saw most of his stats take a significant drop from 2012. The biggest difference might have come with his rushing yards, which decreased from 826 in 2012 to 489 last year.
But according to Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss @EIGHTTODANINE and former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley, the old RG3 is back.
"He looks more comfortable, because he don't have to worry about that brace," Moss said about Griffin during an ESPN podcast earlier this week. "I think the brace was the big discomfort last year. You know, he's a young guy with those fiery legs that want to do so much, and that brace probably gave him a little pinch in the behind, because he couldn't do the things that he was normally accustomed to doing. You can already see, when we're out there in conditioning and stuff, he's running around, looking like the old Robert Griffin."
That follows what Cooley recently said about Griffin: "It's unbelievable. He's another person right now. I was like, 'You're running unbelievably well.' It was silly to watch. ... When you watch him run, you're like, 'You're a freak. You're seriously a freak.'"

Fantasy Analysis:

Completely recovered from his 2013 knee surgery? Check.
Surrounded by a bevy of quality receivers? Check.
Something to prove after last season's step back? Check.
I'm all in for Robert Griffin III in 2014.
