Robert Griffin III cools off for fantasy owners vs. Pittsburgh

Joe Sargent

Robert Griffin III was quiet against the Steelers on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Robert Griffin III was his incredible self on Sunday with just 177 passing yards on 16-of-34 attempts with a TD though the air. He also didn't record any fantasy points in standard leagues with only six carries for eight yards on the ground.

He season passing stats now coming to 1,778 yards with eight TDs and three interceptions. He now had 476 yards on the ground, as well.

Fantasy Impact: Well, Dick Lebeau's defense is now 15-1 against rookie QBs and it's easy to see why. Pittsburgh brought pressure from the inside through the A and B gaps and also off the edge to keep RG3 contained and limited to staying in the pocket.

RG3 will see better days and he'll take on Cam Newton next week at home. He'll be a top-five QB option.
