Robert Griffin III will play in Sunday's game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Robert Griffin III (concussion) was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, then put in a full practice on Friday. He is questionable to play against the Vikings.

RGIII leads the NFL in completion percentage with 69.1 percent and has totals of 1,161 passing yards, 241 rushing yards, four pass TDs and four TDs on the ground this season. He has a passer rating of 101.0.

Fantasy Impact: The frontrunner for Offensive Rookie of the Year is going to play. Griffin didn't face contact in practice because he's a QB, so things are going to be different when he plays in the game. That said, Griffin should be fine and would need an in-game injury to miss time.

The Skins likely won't let him run the ball as much, so he probably won't add much to his rushing totals. He should still have success against the Vikings and should be viewed as a QB1 this week.
