In this weekly column, I typically explore some young players who haven’t made much of a consistent impact to date on their fantasy football teams. Some players may be available on your waiver wire, some may be available via a cheap or moderate trade. Acquiring or not acquiring one of these players could decide how well your dynasty or keeper team does for the next few years. This week I take a look at two young Washington skill players in Robert Griffin III and Jordan Reed.
QB-Robert Griffin III, WASH- I will refer to him as RG3 for the rest of the article for simplicity’s sake. What a difference a year makes, when you look back to the beginning of 2013, the entire football world brimmed with excitement about the super athletic playmaker. Now the realities of the 2014 season have set in, RG3 does not offer the same wonderment, in fact it might be better described as fear and loathing. The third year quarterback started off the game pressured by the Bucs defense. His first pass got batted in the air for an interception. He was late on the throw and did not set his feet before releasing the ball. A series later, RG3 didn’t see a linebacker looming underneath a short route, the ball got knocked into a Tampa corner’s arms for a short touchdown return.
