The Redskins landed their franchise quarterback, and remember, head coach Mike Shanahan helped make Steve Young a Hall of Fame quarterback and led John Elway to two Super Bowls. Griffin could have greater talent than either player. Griffin will immediately contribute as a starting fantasy quarterback because of his legs. Ideally, you want him as your No. 2 backup, but that’s unlikely to happen, as he’s sure to go well before you get to that point in the draft.
His world-class speed will allow him to compensate for a low touchdown and high interception count, and while Griffin is a strong-armed quarterback with deep-ball accuracy, his mechanics can offset that. He’s also coming from a shotgun offense, so transition time will be needed as a passer. Veteran QB Rex Grossman gives the team an option as a stop-gap to take pressure off RG3 if he stumbles in training camp or the preseason. Regardless, Griffin will see the majority of starts this year and his fantasy future is bright; possibly brighter than Luck’s. Griffin is a must-draft in dynasty leagues as well.
