Fantasy Football Outlook: The love for Robert Griffin III seems to be warranted, coming off a Hiesman winning season. While I love the fit from a player, coaching staff perspective, I don’t love his receivers.

Pierre Garcon seems to be a good fit with Griffin’s strong arm, but he struggled with consistency in Indianapolis and now a No.1 receiver, it will be interesting to see how he does.

The underrated receiver in Washington is Santana Moss. An old veteran but he knows how to get open and I could see both Moss and tight end Fred Davis being Griffin’s top targets.

Even Chris Cooley might bounce back with helpful snaps, if he stays on the team and don’t forget about former 49ers receiver Josh Morgan.

While Griffin will likely have a harder time with presnap pickups than Andrew Luck, he has shown an ability to stand in the pocket and deliver the football on tape.

Where Griffin has it up on Luck is his speed and his ability (Luck is good but not great) to burn defenses with this running ability. We’ve seen how this element can be a big factor in terms of fantasy success with players like Cam Newton, Michael Vick, Joe Webb and Tim Tebow in the past.

While Griffin may not have as good a receiving corps as Luck, it’s likely he will have a better rookie year for fantasy purposes. Going as the 12th quarterback off the board in recent ADP trends, I have no problem with you targeting Griffin as a late starter (12 team leagues) or an early backup.

For Dynasty purposes, he should be the second or third off the list (Trent Richardson and Luck) as we should be a little concerned about Griffin’s long-term health, over Luck.
