Griffin's been better than he was on Sunday night, but he's been a whole lot worse too.
Griffin completed 16 of his first 17 passes against the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football, but he cooled off considerably in the second half and finished with 207 passing yards and one touchdown to go with 88 rushing yards. That was by no means Griffin's worst game of the season, but it wasn't the performance fantasy owners came to expect in 2012.
Fantasy spin: Griffin has been a bit disappointing in 2013, and a lot has to do with what's going on around him. Washington has deal with some injuries and really taken a step back since last year. Griffin is also recovering from a torn ACL, so it's possible he still needs to get some of his confidence back.
It's tough to knock Griffin's longterm potential too much in such a bad season for the Redskins, but he definitely didn't progress from his incredible rookie season.
