2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-26-2014 by Larry Goldstein

What a difference a year makes. Last offseason, there was a mounting tension between then-coach Mike Shanahan and Robert Griffin III centered around RG3's ability to be ready for the season-opener. Griffin was recovering from ACL and LCL ligament damage in his right knee. Although RG3 took the field to start the season, he struggled all year (much of which was attributed to his knee brace that kept him from being the athlete he was as a promising rookie). Griffin and Shanahan took passive jabs at each other all year long and it was clear that changes needed to be made. Fast forward to this year where a new regime is in place, led by first-year coach Jay Gruden and Griffin looks to be back to his old self and will be able to play without the brace. Griffin was able to put in offseason work that he couldn't do the prior year because of his rehab. the former Baylor Bears QB will benefit from the addition of DeSean Jackson as a compliment to Pierre Garcon (who was targeted an incredible 182 times last season). Jackson will surely be an improvement over Santana Moss, who was RG3's second-most reliable wide receiver. RG3's ADP is 73.33 or QB8. At this position, the assumption prices Griffin as though he will revert back to his 2012 form. As a rookie, he ran for seven TDs on 120 attempts, compared to no rushing TDs on 86 attempts with the knee brace in 2013.

Editor's note: The re-injury risks are high with Griffin so if you target him, be sure to secure a capable backup. He's always going to be one big hit away from standing on the sideline.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
8.02 FFToolbox - Rob Warner - The ultimate risk reward pick and a gamble well worth taking in round 8 as the Skins expect him to be ready for week 1 following ACL/LCL surgery. RGIII finished his rookie season with 3,200 passing yards, 815 rushing yards, 27 total touchdowns and just seven turnovers. Should be a solid QB1 especially if Garcon and Fred Davis prove to be healthy.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
7.12 KFFSC - The QBs were really flying off the board and I'm glad to add RG3 to my roster. His rehab progress is really astounding and having one year under his belt will make him even sharper in the pocket. We often see 2nd year quarterbacks see a small decline in fantasy production as opposing defenses are better prepared for them. A healthier Garcon and Fred Davis should give RG3 plenty of targets. I don't think it's necessary to draft Cousins as a handcuff, but I'll back him up with someone with strong QB1 potential.

10.04 FFMagicMan - RG3 is the second coming of Adrian Peterson. ACL? MCL? With all due respect to the Black Knight, it's just a flesh wound. Give me this guy in the 10th round on all of my teams this season. Even if he scales back the rushing aspect of his game, he has one of the best arms in the league and can be extremely effective, even from the pocket.
