Redskins | Redskins shoot down Kirk Cousins suitors

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 20:12:44 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is still garnering interest, as three other teams have tried to trade for him "in the last 10 days or so," only to be "quickly shot down," according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: While Cousins' situation in Washington will be tricky beyond 2017, it appears the club is firmly set with him as their starting quarterback going into next season, and who can blame them? The 28-year-old has topped 4,100 passing yards in each of the past two seasons, while compiling 54 touchdowns compared to only 23 interceptions over that span. He'll have QB1 potential in most formats.

Redskins | Terrelle Pryor to work with Kirk Cousins

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 10:07:09 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor has made plans to practice with Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and wide receivers in late April, Pryor said during his introductory press conference Monday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor has a wealth of upside in this offense and intends to get to work early. This is nothing but good news for fantasy gamers, who should look to him as a WR2.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins won't sign long-term deal

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 10:37:32 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will reportedly not agree to a long-term deal with the team as long as team president Bruce Allen remains in power.

Fantasy Tip: This is a direct response to the haphazard way the Redskins handled the departure of former general manager Scott McCloughan and an unsurprising stand despite the fact the ink is still probably still drying after Cousins signed his one-year franchise tender earlier Friday. With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon gone and so much chaos surrounding the franchise, Cousins is going to be hard to trust in fantasy in 2017.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins signs tender

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 08:26:40 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins signed his franchise tender Friday, March 10. He can now be traded, but the team has shown no indication of doing so.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is in a sticky situation where he has asked for a trade, and the team lost its top two receivers. He has earned midrange QB1 status the last two years, but with these other factors coming into play, one has to wonder if there is more risk than upside for more.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins will sign tender

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 17:12:14 -0800

Updating an ongoing story, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will sign his franchise tag tender soon, and he will be a "good soldier," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins most likely will remain with the Redskins in 2017. The offense lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, so a step backward statistically seems inevitable for Cousins. He's a high-end QB2 for most gaming circles.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins asked for trade

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 08:44:27 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins asked owner Dan Snyder for a trade, but he was essentially told not to get his hopes up, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has had two banner seasons in a row, but with the turmoil and uncertainty, you're probably buying him a little high as a midrange QB1 with some bust potential. He's also likely to lose two of his receivers. It's a juicy story, but there are safer options this year.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins, Redskins discussing deal

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 12:16:43 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and the Redskins are discussing a long-term deal worth $20 million per year, according to a source. Cousins' franchise tag is worth around $24 million this year.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will be paid big money either way, but the Redskins want to lock up who they believe to be their quarterback of the future for a long time. Cousins has cemented himself as a QB1 and should be drafted as such even if DeSean Jackson does not return to the District of Columbia.

Redskins | Trade for Kirk Cousins still possible

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 11:35:48 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins "remains in play" to be traded despite receiving the exclusive franchise tag on Tuesday, Feb. 28, according to the Washington Post's Mark Maske.

Fantasy Tip: ESPN's John Keim reported earlier Tuesday the San Francisco 49ers are the only team Cousins is willing to sign a long-term contract with "right now" - a move that would reunite him with his former offensive coordinator (and new 49ers head coach) Kyle Shanahan. Maske does nothing to dispute that possibility. San Francisco has ten draft picks at the moment, including No. 2 overall, so it has the ammunition to pull the trigger. A move to the bay area would send Cousins into fantasy QB2 territory in 2017.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins gets exclusive franchise tag

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 10:43:39 -0800

Impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins (Redskins) received the exclusive franchise tag on Tuesday, Feb. 28, prohibiting him to negotiate with other teams.

Fantasy Tip: The only real question for weeks was whether or not Washington would choose the exclusive or non-exclusive tag, so this answers that question. The exclusive tag guarantees Cousins a 20-percent raise on his 2016 salary of $19.953 million, but the fact the Redskins don't appear anywhere close to signing him long-term throws gas on the fire to the rumors he could leave for the San Francisco 49ers after the season. For 2017, however, Cousins projects to be a low-end QB1 in fantasy.

49ers | Kirk Cousins likes 49ers

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 06:28:48 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins would sign with the San Francisco 49ers to reunite with head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is likely to receive the franchise tag again from the Redskins, and this topic could be on hold for another year. Cousins has had two banner seasons in a row, and he's in the midrange QB1 area in fantasy.
