Robert Griffin III expected to be closer to full speed in Week 17: Fantasy implications

Patrick McDermott

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said his mobility was somewhat restricted in Week 16. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said Sunday his mobility was somewhat restricted during his team's win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Griffin played with a brace on his injured knee but said after the game (via CSNWashington.com) that he was still "able to do everything a quarterback is supposed to do."

Griffin threw for 198 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday, although coach Mike Shanahan said after the game that the offense was tweaked slightly because he didn't want to put too much pressure on Griffin's knee. Griffin and the Redskins face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17, with the winner taking the NFC East crown.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin will likely be healthier in Week 17 and that's good news for fantasy owners setting rosters for the final week of the season. Griffin was solid on Sunday against the Eagles but didn't look as explosive as he has at times this season.

Griffin remains a top fantasy quarterback and should have another good game in Week 17 against Dallas.
