Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III still played a good game in Sunday's close 38-31 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Griffin finished 21-of-34 passing for 221 yards and one touchdown through the air, while running for another 85 yards and a rushing touchdown. The rookie QB also avoided throwing any interceptions.
Fantasy Analysis: Griffin has been productive as a rookie, even being worthy of ownership in the majority of fantasy leagues. He has been an all-purpose machine and hasn't made the kind of errors one would expect from a first-year player. For most owners, they gambled on Griffin in a late round and he's put them in a position to trade their projected starter for help elsewhere. If Griffin can remain productive and mistake-free for another week, this wouldn't be a bad strategy for Griffin owners.
