Sit ‘Em

Robert Griffin III (WAS) @ San Francisco 49ers – Last week, I made the call to start RG3 and at first, that seemed like a terrible decision. Griffin threw two interceptions early, but also threw two touchdowns later on.

Despite Griffin’s late game fantasy football redemption last week, it’s obvious that things are spiraling out of control in the nation’s capital.

Following the Washington Redskins 20-point loss to the Buccaneers in week 11, Griffin decided to publicly criticize his Redskins teammates. That drew some public criticism from Redskins first-year head coach, Jay Gruden. Gruden stated that said Griffin showed fundamental flaws and below average footwork, among other unpleasant asseverations.

To complicate matters worse for RG3 fantasy owners, the Skins travel to California in week 12 to face the 49ers. While the 9ers defense hasn’t quite returned to the form of the 2013 squad, their still no slouch by any means. The 49ers allow an average of 228.5 passing yards per game to quarterbacks and have allowed 62 rushing yards to the position all season.

Another poor performance by Griffin and the D.C. fan base may stay calling for Colt McCoy.
