Fantasy Football: Baylor's going good. RGIII? Not so much



Everything is going gangbusters in the Baylor Nation.

Just about everything.

As good as the Baylor football team has been playing this season — who’s ready for that game Saturday night in Stillwater? — you’d kind of assume that luck would extend to everything Baylor-related. But apparently, all that is green is not gold.

Former Baylor superstar and the Bears’ only Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III is having a tough season. The Washington quarterback has thrown for only 14 touchdowns to go along with 10 interceptions this season, and even though he had a three-touchdown-pass game a couple weeks ago, he’s been scuffling along the last couple months. He’s had more games with no touchdowns (three) than games with three touchdowns (two).

And things haven’t looked much better in recent weeks.

So, as Washington prepares to take on San Francisco and a stout Niners defense, our fantasy football guru Mike Baldwin says you have to sit Griffin.

Who else needs to sit this week? Who might be making a come back? Be sure to check out this week’s Hudiburg Fantasy Football Update.
