START   QB: Robert Griffin III at DEN – While rushing for 161 yards over his past two games, Robert Griffin III has helped solidify the belief that “he’s back.” Rushing for 55.1 yards per game last season, RGIII finished as the No. 5 fantasy quarterback – despite missing a game. Facing a Broncos defense that is allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, RGIII couldn’t have a better matchup this week. For fantasy owners that need a streamer, Carson Palmer also has a great matchup against a Falcons defense that has struggled mightily against the pass. RB: Eddie Lacy at MIN – Until further notice, Eddie Lacy is a RB1. Since returning from his concussion, in three games, Lacy has rushed 68 times for 301 yards (4.42 YPC) and a touchdown. With those games coming against the Lions, Ravens, and Browns, this will be Lacy’s first truly favorable matchup. The Vikings are allowing the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Lacy is a must-start. Knowshon More...

Beyond the TDs, Roy Helu becoming a big part of Washington offense (Week 7 RB Touches)

Typically when either of Washington’s Shanahans says anything about a running back you take it with a grain of salt, but, a few weeks ago the team indicated that they’d be getting Roy Helu more involved and they’ve done so, to the tune of 22 touches over the past two weeks. This week, Helu rewarded them with three scores. It’s still Alfred Morris‘ backfield (a healthy 19...

Baylor to name new stadium after RG3?

Robert Griffin III won a Heisman Trophy in 2011 and helped Baylor win 10 games for the first time since 1980. Without those accomplishments, Baylor's new 250 million home along the Brazos River never happens. There aren't any plans now, but Griffin would be OK with his name being somewhere on the new stadium or field. "I think it would be an honor. It's not anything...

In 2012, the story was Robert Griffin III, an impossible combination of athleticism and accuracy, a quarterback who had more rushing touchdowns than he did interceptions and completed 65 percent of his passes.
