Redskins | Kirk Cousins scores three times

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 18:42:17 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 25 of his 37 passes for 330 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and ran four times for 26 yards and a touchdown in a 26-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Washington almost blew a big lead, but Cousins finished with a strong stat line and has now accounted for multiple touchdowns in three straight games. Up next is a rematch with a Philadelphia Eagles team that kept Cousins in check in Week 1, but he is playing well enough to deploy as a low-end QB1.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins churns out solid MNF outing

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 21:06:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 14 of 24 passes for 215 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team's Week 4 loss Monday, Oct. 2, against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also added seven rushes for 38 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Despite registering his fewest pass attempts in a game since last December, Cousins ended up being efficient anyway in terms of fantasy scoring. It also helped that he didn't turn the ball over. Cousins continues to serve as a fine lower-end QB1 and as impressive as he's been over the last few seasons, 2017 is shaping up to be his best one yet, as he's on pace for a career-high QB rating.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins on track to play

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 11:13:59 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins (non-injury) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is coming off his best game of the season in Week 3 where he threw for 365 yards and three touchdowns. He may be without some of his receivers and will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense but can still be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins back at practice Saturday

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 10:45:30 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins (non-injury) returned to practice Saturday, Sept. 30, after leaving the team for a day to be with his wife for the birth of their first child.

Fantasy Tip: This means Cousins should be find to face the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football. Playing against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium is usually difficult for any quarterback, so owners shouldn't hesitate benching Cousins this week if they have similar options with a better matchup.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins sits out Friday

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 14:50:20 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins (non-injury) did not practice Friday, Sept. 29, as he awaits the birth of his first child. If Cousins chooses to sit out Week 4, QB Colt McCoy would replace him in the lineup Monday versus the Kansas City Chiefs. "We're getting Colt ready to play," head coach Jay Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: The child was supposed to be delivered last weekend and Cousins still played, so consider him likely to go Monday night. However, there is always an off chance he has to sit, so have a backup plan. McCoy shouldn't be used unless you have zero options.

Redskins | Josh Doctson earning trust

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 19:48:47 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson is continuing to earn the trust of QB Kirk Cousins, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "And that's something that's got to continue to develop because Josh can do things not many people can do when the ball is in the air," Gruden said. "I think with that will hopefully come more opportunity for him to make plays down the field on the ball where he looks like he might be covered but Kirk might give him a chance."

Fantasy Tip: Doctson caught a long touchdown in Week 3, but that is his lone catch on the year. The upside is there, but he is a lottery ticket at this point.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins shreds Oakland

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 21:08:57 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 25 of his 30 passes for 365 yards and three touchdowns in a 27-10 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: After a sloppy start to the year, Cousins had a breakout performance against Oakland. His QB1 upside is undeniable, but Cousins could be a boom-or-bust option on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins quiet in Week 2 win

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:26:38 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 18 of his 27 pass attempts for 179 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 2 on the road against the Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is being paid like an elite quarterback, but so far he has passed for just 419 yards and two touchdowns with one interception through two games. Not good. He might recover in Week 3 in a potential shootout against Oakland on Sunday Night Football.
