Colt McCoy dealing with neck injury, won’t be fantasy option even if healthy
Washington might be forced to start RGIII once again. We break down the fantasy implications.
Washington’s ongoing quarterback drama takes another turn Monday. Colt McCoy is dealing with a strained neck and might not be cleared in time to start next week’s game against the New York Giants. Head coach Jay Gruden confirmed that Robert Griffin III will get the start if McCoy isn’t ready to go.
McCoy suffered the neck injury in Washington’s latest embarrassment, a 24-0 drubbing by the St. Louis Rams at home. He was having a poor game before the injury, throwing for 199 yards on 20-of-32 passing with zero touchdowns and two interceptions.
Fantasy impact: McCoy was so bad that Washington fans started cheering for RGIII just a few weeks after wanting him gone. We’ll monitor the situation throughout the week since it looks like McCoy is shaping up as a game time decision, but this has easily become the biggest circus in the league. There is absolutely no reason to trust Washington’s offense during the fantasy playoffs, not even typically sure things like Alfred Morris and DeSean Jackson.
