Robert Griffin III named NFC Offensive Player of the Week: Fantasy implications

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III on Wednesday was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III on Wednesday was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, becoming the first rookie quarterback to win the award twice since it was started in 1984. Griffin also won the honor in Week 1.

In Week 11, Griffin passed for 200 yards and four touchdowns in a win over the Philadelphia Eagles. He also ran for 84 yards on 12 attempts. Griffin and the Redskins face the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin had struggled in his previous two games but this performance more than made it up to his fantasy owners. He has big fantasy potential every week and owners should be starting him with confidence at this point in the season.

Griffin should again be considered a No. 1 fantasy option at quarterback in Week 12 against Dallas.
