Fantasy Football Champs:
According to the Redskins' official Twitter account, Washington coach Mike Shanahan said Monday that receiver Leonard Hankerson has played "well enough to earn a starting job."Fantasy Spin:Hankerson will start at split end with Pierre Garcon out and will presumably replace Joshua Morgan on the other side when Garcon returns. The receiver saw seven targets in Week 3, catching four passes for 56 yards. Fantasy owners should take a shot with Hankerson.

Cornerback David Jones was signed by the Redskins, who waived/injured Crezdon Butler. Washington also signed defensive lineman Chigbo Anunoby to the practice squad and released defensive lineman Delvin Johnson.

According to ESPN 980 in Washington D.C., Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan chased down an official and was cursing him out during Sunday’s loss to the Bengals.
“You have No f***ing balls, you r a f***ing p***y,” said Shanahan, per ESPN 980.
If Shanahan did look to berate a replacement official by cursing him out, I would expect the NFL to fine him if they have...
Redskins tight end Fred Davis benefitted from Pierre Garcon's absence in Week 3, catching seven passes for 90 yards.Fantasy Spin:Davis had failed to develop chemistry with rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III in the first two weeks, catching only four passes for 52 yards. He's unlikely to have many weeks like Week 3 once Garcon returns.
The Redskins have agreed to terms with free agent running back Ryan Grant.Fantasy Spin:Grant will play a backup role to Alfred Morris for the time being while Roy Helu and Evan Royster deal with injuries. Just the usual Mike Shanahan's shenanigans we as Fantasy Football managers have to deal with. Grant may not seem to have much value now, but remember Shanahan changes his mind...
Mike Shannahan is certainly known for his bag of tricks when it comes to offense, especially during his short time in Washington with the Redskins. He certainly could not ask for a better quarterback to be able to direct that offense than the reigning Heisman Trophy winner out of Baylor University in Robert Griffin, III. Through three games this season, Griffin has shown that he...
Washington Redskins Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan isn't as fast at Bill Belichick. Shanahan wasn't able to grab a scab ref -- he simply chased him out of the tunnel while verbally assaulting...

This is just a straight repost, with credit to Terez for drawing the comparison… I always knew that Robert Griffin had a unique look. He’s got a strong sense of style, a love of socks, and he’s a pretty unique guy. But he’s reminded me of someone…
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Washington Redskins and free agent running back Ryan Grant have agreed to terms on a deal.
Grant has been talking with multiple teams and was in Chicago today working out for the Bears when he got the word that he’ll be joining the Redskins.
So far this season the Redkins have won a game we didn’t expect them to win and lost a game we didn’t expect them to lose, which is very Redskins. The difference of course is that Robert Griffin III was our quarterback in both games, and he was spectacular. May he be so again, no matter what occurs.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the NFL has fined Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan $25,000 for berating a replacement official after Sunday’s loss to the Bengals.
The NFL has to continue to crack down on coaches verbally attacking the replacement offcials or else things could get out of hand.
