When I watch RGIII, I see a quarterback with bad footwork that can't figure out how to get out of bounds when he takes off down the field. Also, Jay Gruden does not want to call a ton of designed running plays this year. I don't see RGIII as a refined enough passer to finish in the Top 10 nor do I see him as durable enough to make it there as a runner.
Rivers had a bounce back year in 2013, but toward the end of the season, the Chargers turned into a run oriented team that did not pass as much. I think Rivers has a strong year in 2014, but I think a run oriented offense will keep him at the back of the Top 10. The Chargers clearly intend to be a running team with the addition of RB Donald Brown to an already crowded backfield.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
With some new weapons and an offense not as focused on the run Griffen's upside is very solid.
People are still thinking about 2012, but last year he did put up over 4,000 yards and over 30 TDs. You have to love those numbers from a fantasy perspective.

***Griffin continues to struggle in the preseason as the conversion to a pocket passer has been tougher than what people had expected.***Two words for you, Andy Dalton. Two more words for you, Jay Gruden. RG3 is said to be looking better than ever via several different media outlets and sources so health should not be an issue. Add in the fact that Griffin has a very solid group of receivers to throw to led by former Eagle DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon and you can't help but get excited. But OC Gruden will be the cherry on top of this sundae. He turned the Red Rifle into one of the best fantasy quarterbacks last season and I predict that Griffin will enjoy similar success. Just don't expect nearly the rushing yards as he had in his first year in the league.
Rivers has bounced back and once again become one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL. He is a pretty competent fantasy football gunslinger as well.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
RG3 is past his knee injury and he's in an offense that should maximize his talents. If Jay Gruden can make Andy Dalton an elite fantasy passer, RG3 is primed for success.
Rivers revived his career in a new system last year. Expect more of the same from him in 2014.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
RG3 is now almost a year and a half removed from his ACL injury and reportedly “looks like a different QB.” Washington will have DeSean Jackson running deep routes alongside Pierre Garcon while TE Jordan Reed (who has the Aaron Hernandez ability) dominates the middle of the field. Washington signed Pass-Happy Coach Jay Gruden this offseason, who led Bengals Andy Dalton to a Top 5 Fantasy QB finish last season. Expect a major bounce back year for RG3.
Rivers was named the 2013 Comeback Player of the Year last season as he shocked the world in the process. An area of concern for future Rivers owners is that HC – Mike McCoy transitioned the offense from a quick-hitting passing attack to a more heavy run offense, as Rivers only threw for 30+ Passing Attempts only once in the final six games of the season. Even though Rivers finished as a top-line fantasy quarterback in 2013, we feel that there are 13 other trustworthy options out there to roll with who can lead you to a championship.

Fantasy Team Advice
 
Rivers enjoyed a bounceback 2013 courtesy of Mike McCoy. Expect similar numbers this season as the Chargers return the majority of their key players from a year ago
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
He's looked terrible in the preseason. Small sample size, but ...
Has thrown for 4,000+ yards in 5 of last 6 years with solid TD totals.
  
Matthew Hill
Fantasy Team Advice
Griffen is healthy, surrounded by play makers and is being coached by pass-happy Jay Gruden. Look for RG3 to have a monster year.
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Gruden's attempt to mold him into a pocket passer a failure thus far.
Underrated QB1 potential typically going in the 9-10th round.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
RG3 has plenty of upside, but may have some growing pains in Gruden's new offense. Much of his past fantasy greatness stemmed from his rushing ability and that could be curtailed this season, but he'll also have a healthy Garcon, DJax and Reed to help him out.
