Quarterback Rank: #29All Players: #170
Griffin had another erratic season, finding his way in and out of the starting lineup. He had just five touchdowns to six interceptions for the season. Griffin was clearly in new coach Jay Gruden's dog house, which doesn't bode well for his future. He'll get his shot to start this season but nothing is going to be handed to him. Griffin is going to have to make big strides this offseason and do a much better job of being a leader for the Redskins. Griffin hasn't been the same player since tearing his ACL. He seemed on his way to a stellar career after a huge rookie season but things have gone south since that point. Griffin is an accurate quarterback that throws a good deep ball. He can make all the throws but struggles with his decision making. He looks indecisive at times, especially when he stays in the pocket. At this point, his biggest asset might be his legs, but Griffin isn't running as much as he did early in his career. Griffin can be an elusive runner with game-breaking speed at the quarterback spot.
Griffin is a big risk but carries plenty of potential if he gets it all together. He is worth a look as a backup for fantasy teams, especially if you grab a solid starter early in your draft. For now, expect a season with around 3,000 yards and 20 total touchdowns with 450 or so rushing yards. Just remember that Griffin is about as big of a risk as any fantasy quarterback in the game.
