Redskins | Kirk Cousins fine with contract status

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:41:40 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said he is comfortable with playing under the one-year franchise tag if the team wants to see him play in more games before they give him a long-term deal. Cousins also said he would be fine if the team wanted to give him a long-term deal before next season. "I think that people make great decisions when they have a lot of information at their disposal, and if the Redskins would like more information from this next season to be able to make a decision on me long-term, I totally understand that and understand where they're coming from," Cousins said. "If they feel like they have enough information and want to make that call right now, then great, too. But I think the ball's in their court and I will react accordingly to whatever decision they make. But I am totally comfortable playing more football, and frankly, if I don't play well next season, I don't deserve to be back. I don't deserve to have a long-term deal. I want to go out and earn it, and prove myself, and if I need to prove myself again, that's fine. I'll go see if I can do that."

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will be with the Redskins for at least one more season and will have plenty of weapons to work with in the passing game. He is coming off a solid 2015 season and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins optimistic for deal

Mon, 02 May 2016 08:07:54 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is optimistic about signing a long-term deal before the season starts. "I think there's a chance," Cousins said. "The ball's in the court of the Redskins."

Fantasy Tip: Cousins emerged in a big way last season, but was it a fluke? That's the question most owners will have to debate when selecting him as a low-end QB1 this season.

Redskins | Positive negotiations with Kirk Cousins

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 09:56:27 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and the Redskins continue to talk about a long-term deal, according to general manager Scot McCloughan. The negotiations are considered positive, and McCloughan thinks a deal could be imminent. Cousins signed his franchise tag for close to $20 million on March 3. The deadline for a long-term deal is July 15.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins broke out for 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns in leading Washington to a playoff berth in 2015. He hadn't played in more than six games before last season. Can Cousins do it again? That's the million dollar question. He should be able to put up nice numbers in the right matchups, but it's safer to draft him as a top-flight fantasy backup.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins wants certain deal

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 16:48:39 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins wants a lengthy, long-term contract from the Redskins -- something in the $19 million per year range, with $40 million in guaranteed money. Washington doesn't view him as that kind of starter yet, though.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Cousins' 2015 breakout campaign was an anomaly or a sign of what's to come. He's a fringe starting fantasy quarterback this year, but it's probably safer to draft him as your QB2.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins to talk deal soon

Fri, 11 Mar 2016 16:20:22 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is expected to talk about a long-term extension again once free agency dies down, according to president Bruce Allen. Despite placing the franchise tag on Cousins, Washington wants to reach a long-term deal with him.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins cashed in after a breakout season in 2015. He can surely put up QB1 numbers for daily gamers certain weeks, but he's more of a high-end fantasy backup moving forward.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins ready for offseason program

Fri, 04 Mar 2016 18:11:42 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins plans to fully participate in all aspects of the offseason program and preseason preparation, with or without a long-term, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Cousins is focused on continuing to improve as a player, but it remains to be seen if he can repeat his performance from last season. Draft him as a fantasy backup in 2016.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins' salary fully guaranteed

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 23:26:01 -0800

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins signed his franchise tag Thursday, March 3, and his $20 million salary is fully guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Despite his huge payday, Cousins is still not a recommended QB1 in fantasy play. View him more as a bye-week replacement or No. 2 QB in leagues which require two signal callers.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins signing tender

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 17:02:16 -0800

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will sign his franchise tender the morning of Thursday, March 3.

Fantasy Tip: As stated earlier, Cousins is coming off a breakout season and should be viewed as a borderline starting fantasy quarterback, just don't get your hopes too high that he'll duplicate last year's output.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins could sign soon

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 16:21:06 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins could sign his franchise tag soon, according to a source, and possibly as soon as the end of business day Wednesday, March 2.

Fantasy Tip: It would behoove Cousins to sign sooner rather than later. This is a win-win situation for both parties, but especially for the Redskins. They can hold off on a long-term deal for the time being while waiting to see if last season was an anomaly for Cousins. He did have a breakout campaign, but Cousins shouldn't be considered more than a fringe QB1.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins had teams' interest

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 17:36:45 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins received the franchise tag Tuesday, March 1, but the Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets were included in the teams who were monitoring his situation beforehand.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins would have been one of the more attractive quarterbacks if he hadn't been tagged. He could still sign a long-term deal, too, but Washington now will have a chance to see if Cousins can duplicate his solid 2015 season. Cousins is not an every-week fantasy starter, though, and is best suited as a bye-week replacement or starter in good matchups.
