We at OOR have been high on RG3 coming into the league and throughout his rookie campaign. RG3’s rookie season was, in fact, great and the ‘Skins made the playoffs. So by all accounts, the sky is the limit for RG3 in his second season and beyond . . . but now we’re telling you RGIII is not the QB to own this year or build your fantasy team around for the next 5-10 years. We know this contradicts our earlier posts such as “Top 3 reasons RG3 Will be an Elite Dynasty Quarterback”, and our “2012 fantasy Football Dynasty league Rookie Positional Rankings” where we had RG3 essentially 1A behind Andrew Luck. So why the change of heart? Well now we have more information to make a new assessment on Griffin like a completed season, numerous comments from him and his family, as well as an injury, and a preseason where he’s not doing much.
Entering 2013, Griffin III is ranked in the top 10 of fantasy QBs. Behind Griffin in most rankings are Luck, Kaepernick, Russell Wilson, and Eli Manning, all of whom I’d take ahead of Griffin this or the next 4-5 seasons. I’ve heard of drafts where Griffin is going ahead Cam Newton which is just crazy…even Tony Romo should be going ahead of Griffin….but I digress.
So why should you not build your franchise around RG3?
