Redskins vs. Browns: Fantasy football projections featuring Robert Griffin III, Trent Richardson, Alfred Morris

USA TODAY Sports

We break down the pertinent fantasy football projections for the Week 15 matchup between the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns.

The Cleveland Browns host the Washington Redskins in Week 15. Both teams are still in the playoff hunt, but the Browns need several miracles to get there, while the Redskins' season hinges on one man's knee ligaments. In order to help you set the optimal playoff lineup, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Washington Redskins

Let's address the big elephant in the room--Robert Griffin III and his sprained LCL. The latest news is that RGIII participated in individual drills, but backup Kirk Cousins took all the first-team reps in practice. It's coming down to a literal game time decision--we won't if he's playing until around 12:00 ET Sunday morning.

RGIII's game status is critical because the whole offense runs through him. If he can't go, then Alfred Morris and Pierre Garcon could see deflated fantasy value. The situation is very touch-and-go right now.

Cleveland Browns

The Browns' situation is much more clear-cut. Trent Richardson is the workhorse and is usually good for solid fantasy production, despite rumors of him losing carries to Montario Hardesty. Brandon Weeden is still going through his rookie groans, but he has a nice matchup against Washington's terrible secondary and has QB2 upside this week.

Look for Weeden to target Josh Gordon early and often. Gordon is hot right now and is establishing himself as a reliable WR3.
