Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is off to a fast start against the New Orleans Saints. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is off to a fast start against the New Orleans Saints. The rookie quarterback is 10-11 passing for 155 yards and two touchdowns. Griffin III also has 24 yards rushing on four carries. Garcon briefly left the game with an injury but returned to catch an 88-yard touchdown from Griffin III. Garcon has four catches for 109 yards and the score.

Fantasy Impact: The combination of Griffin and Garcon is already proving to be dangerous. Griffin's deep accuracy is a perfect match with Garcon's blazing deep speed. This could be a lethal duo for fantasy owners.
