Redskins TE Chris Cooley says the team has installed parts of the offense that Robert Griffin III ran at Baylor. We break down the fantasy implications.
Washington Redskins TE Chris Cooley says coach Mike Shanahan has installed parts of the offense that Robert Griffin III ran at Baylor. Cooley tells "NFL AM" that practicing Baylor's offense in training camp is mostly to show the team how certain plays are run. Cooley says the team is able to use a multifaceted offense in part because of Griffin's intelligence.
Analysis: This makes perfect sense for Griffin, who the Redskins traded up to take No. 2 overall because of his success at Baylor. As Cooley points out, the Redskins aren't going to be an option team this season but Griffin's athletic ability will allow them to show different looks. As a fantasy quarterback Griffin is still a mystery and owners should monitor his success throwing the football heading into the regular season. He is an intriguing No. 2 quarterback with lots of potential. Draft him higher in dynasty and keeper-league formats.
