Robert Griffin III practices at full speed, expects to play for fantasy owners if cleared by doctors

USA TODAY Sports

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (knee) said he practiced at full speed on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said Wednesday he practiced at full speed and expects to play in Week 16 if he's cleared by doctors. Griffin missed last weekend's game against the Cleveland Brows because of a sprained right knee.

Kirk Cousins started in place of Griffin and thew for 329 yards and two touchdowns. Griffin said he was encouraged by Wednesday's practice and felt no weakness or instability in the injured knee. The Redskins face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin practicing at full speed is good news for fantasy owners counting on him this weekend. His status for Week 16 will likely be determined later in the week so his owners will want to monitor this.

If he's active, Griffin should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback against the Eagles on Sunday.
