Robert Griffin III probable for Week 16: Fantasy implications

USA TODAY Sports

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (knee) is probable for Week 16. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is probable for Sunday's game with the Philadelphia Eagles, coach Mike Shanahan said on Friday. Griffin has been a full participant in practice all week and should play against Philadelphia.

Griffin, who missed last weekend's win over the Cleveland Browns because of a knee injury, still has to be cleared by doctors to play but Shanahan said he expected that to happen Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Shanahan said Friday he was 98 percent sure Griffin would play in Week 16 and that should be good enough for fantasy owners to put Griffin in their lineups with confidence. Griffin threw four touchdown passes earlier this season against the Eagles and has been a top fantasy performer all year.

Check and make sure he's active but Griffin should again be considered a No. 1 fantasy option at quarterback.
