Robert Griffin III goes off for fantasy owners on Thanksgiving

Tom Pennington

RG3 had no problem scoring points against the Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Robert Griffin III put on arguably the best performance of his short NFL career against the Cowboys in Week 12. The rookie quarterback completed 20 of 28 passes for 311 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for an extra 29 yards on six carries.

His lone interception on Thanksgiving was the only blemish on a nearly flawless game.

Fantasy Impact: Back-to-back weeks with four touchdown passes make his owners completely forget about his poor outing against Carolina. RG3 has been a top scorer all season long, as was the case in Week 12.

The Redskins take on the Giants next week, and while it might be tough for RG3 to match four touchdowns again, he's easily a QB1 every single week.
