Found August 14, 2013 on Juan Elway:
Alfred Morris caught 11 passes last season, which almost double the suckishness of Stevan Ridley’s 6, but is still a suck fest.  Roy Helu is healthy and if you know anything about Shanny’s past and RBs, anything is possible.  Hopefully Morris can get more targets (can’t get less) and get more receptions (can’t get less) to increase his value in PPR leagues.  Here is what Shanmeister said about Alf’s improvements as a receiver: “He has spent a lot of time in the offseason catching the football, running routes and you can see that hard work has paid off because he’s a lot more natural. It gives you another dimension.” Well, we can always hope that the improvement comes this season and we see 30 plus receptions to go along with the majority of the carries and the work at the stripe.  H/T Redskins.com Finishing Strong: RBs Real Info From Fake Games

Robert Griffin Wants to Play in Preseason, Mike Shanahan says there is “No Possibility”

Reports are surfacing that Robert Griffin III is pushing the coaching staff to play week 3 of the preseason. I admire RG3’s competitive drive to get back on the field but to me his judgment is cloudy. Maybe he still hasn’t shaken off the concussion he suffered week 5 versus the Falcons last year. Griffin seems to want to play in the meaningless preseason exhibition games more...
