2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jun-23-2015 by Shawn Childs

The lack of success by Griffin was real frustrating to fantasy owners and even more to coach Gruden in 2014. When given time to throw, Robert completed a career high 68.7 percent of his passes while gaining a solid 7.9 yards per pass attempt. His lack of success was due to a huge onslaught of pressure from the opposing defense (33 sacks). In his last six starts, Griffin was sacked 28 times. He never threw more than one TD in any game and his value as a runner was a career-low (4.6 yards per rush). Many of his failures against the pass rush were a result of him not getting the ball out quickly. The coaching staff lost faith in him, but he has the owner in his court. With a full offseason to get his legs back in shape and a possible upgrade in the offensive line, Robert could be in position to reach his upside potential. The Redskins have two strong WRs and an above average TE if Jordan Reed stays healthy. In the early draft season, he had an ADP of 154 as the 27th QB off the table. He seems like a misplaced asset. Washington will throw the ball and any yards gained on the ground count double in most formats. I like him as an upside gamble as a backup fantasy QB, but I would also roster a third option for insurance. With a full-time job for 16 games, Griffin should throw for 3,500-plus yards with 600-plus yards rushing. With improved play, 25-plus combined TDs are well within reach.
