Hear me out, I'm 100 percent serious and have not been drinking.
RGIII is great in real life and is also one of the best fantasy quarterbacks this year. Sadly, however, there's no reward for guessing right in the middle of the draft and being able to start the QB you drafted as your backup.
This is about asset management.
RGIII's stock is flying high right now and would likely be an upgrade for almost every team in your league. Take a look at your backup who (one would assume) was drafted much earlier. Is it someone like Matt Stafford? Tony Romo? Ben Roethlisberger? If so, consider the fact that the season-long point totals for those guys are probably going to be about the same as RGIII.
Then, take RGIII's injury and his propensity to get hit. He's not playing all 16 games, there's almost no chance of that happening.
I'm not saying trade him for nothing and I'm not saying cut him, but if you can get starters at RB, WR (or both) and some extra thrown in, it could be the difference between finishing in the middle of the pack and a fantasy championship.
