Griffin III Appears On ‘MVP Watch’ List

He’s already among the select few being considered as the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year through four games of the 2012 season, but now there’s consideration for another postseason award floating Robert Griffin III’s way:

The league’s Most Valuable Player.

Griffin III this week made his first appearance on ESPN.com Mike Sando’s weekly “MVP Watch” piece, which lists Sando’s 10 most valuable players in the NFL.

Griffin III is one of two NFC East quarterbacks to make the list.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning — who was ranked No. 6 last week — fell two spots to No. 8 this week.

Griffin III, meanwhile, cracks the list at No. 10 overall.

Here’s what Sando wrote about Griffin III’s season thus far:

“Griffin ranks 10th in QBR and fourth in NFL passer rating. He ranks third in completion percentage, third in yards per attempt (8.6) and 16th in rushing yards. Washington ranks third in yards per game, thanks largely to Griffin. The Redskins are weak on defense, putting additional pressure on Griffin to produce. The team might be lost without him. Griffin is coming off his first fourth-quarter comeback victory.”

Now, it still might be a little early in the season to determine postseason awards, but this much is clear: if Griffin III leads the Redskins to a win over the 4-0 Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, then “MVP” might be something tossed around much more frequently.

This week’s “MVP Watch” by Sando is also filled with players that the Redskins either will play or already have played this season, including:

- 1. Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons
– 4. Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens
– 7. A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
– 8. Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants
