Robert Griffin III to be released

The Cleveland Browns have announced the release of Robert Griffin III.

Fantasy Impact

RG3 ended 2016 with 886 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions with 190 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Griffin was never able to establish himself as he only played five games for the Browns and from the beginning it wasn't working. As of now it would be hard to see RG# starting anywhere. For the time being Robert Griffin III has zero value in fantasy football circles.

Robert Griffin III, Browns to part ways

ESPN's Pat McManamon believes the Cleveland Browns will part ways with quarterback Robert Griffin III in the offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Griffin's tenure in Cleveland was short, but not too sweet. He was plagued by injury and failed to impress in his limited time under center in 2016. He finished the disappointing campaign with 866 yards passing, two touchdowns and three interceptions in five games played, adding another 190 yards and two scores on the ground. In Griffin's presumable departure, the Browns will need to fill the gaping hole at quarterback that has been seemingly vacant since the Tim Couch era. McManamon believes the void will be filled by Tyrod Taylor if the ultimately Bills decide to move on from him as they are expected to -- per reports.

Robert Griffin tosses two touchdowns in season finale

Robert Griffin III had his best game as a Cleveland Brown in Week 17 against the Steelers. He completed 29-of-40 passes for 232 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. The Browns fell to Pittsburgh in overtime, 27-24.

Fantasy Impact

Griffin also added 32 rushing yards on five carries. The touchdown passes were his first in an NFL game since the 2014 season. With the Browns expected to pursue a quarterback in the NFL draft, Griffin's future with the team is cloudy.

Robert Griffin III to start Week 17

Cleveland Browns Head Coach Hue Jackson told the media quarterback Robert Griffin III (concussion) will start Week 17, "barring any setbacks."

Fantasy Impact

After missing Wednesday's practice with a head injury suffered last week, Griffin returned for Thursday's session following his clearance from the league's concussion protocol. He is not a reliable fantasy option for Week 17 despite being designated the Browns' starter as the team's offense is in shambles.

Robert Griffin cleared; will start Week 17

Robert Griffin III was cleared to practice and will be the Browns' starter for Week 17 against the Steelers, barring any unexpected setbacks.

Fantasy Impact

Griffin left Week 16's game in the fourth quarter with a concussion, but apparently had little trouble getting cleared for Week 17. He's a low-end QB2 for fantasy leagues this Sunday.
