Redskins | Kirk Cousins posts solid numbers

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 04:05:28 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins threw for 296 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-27 win over the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins, who was on the hot seat with some of his players earlier in the week, wasnt after this game. It's a classic case of what a difference a week makes for Cousins, who has solid QB2 potential. The only thing holding him back is the team he is on and the matchups every week.

Redskins | Jay Gruden standing behind Kirk Cousins

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 09:46:56 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins still has the "total faith" of head coach Jay Gruden despite a rough beginning to the season. Cousins ranks third in the league in passing yards (693), but he has only one touchdown versus three interceptions, contributing to Washington's 0-2 start.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins' defense has coughed up 65 points as well, so the failings of the team hardly fall entirely on the shoulders of Cousins, although he has already been picked off more times this year than he was over his final nine contests combined (including playoffs) last season. He could struggle again this week against a New York Giants defense that kept Drew Brees in check in Week 2, but he has a shot to carve up the Cleveland Browns in Week 4. Cousins remains a QB2 in fantasy for now.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins bad in red zone

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 07:49:55 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is 5-for-17 for 34 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the red zone. Last season, he was 50-for-78 for 345 yards, 22 touchdowns and no interceptions in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a bit of a slow start, and they'll have a must-win game against the New York Giants next week. The Giants boast a solid secondary, and it won't be a great matchup. He'll be a low-end QB1 option in fantasy.

Redskins | Teammates unhappy with Kirk Cousins?

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 22:48:59 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 28 of his 46 pass attempts for 364 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He also ran twice for 20 yards. After a pair of losses at home, a source with knowledge of the situation said multiple offensive players have begun to complain about Cousins, pointing to a lack of decisiveness, erratic play and confusion.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is putting up big fantasy numbers, but teammates do not care about that - they care about wins and losses. Colt McCoy is waiting in the wings in case Cousins continues to struggle. Fantasy owners cannot be pleased hearing Cousins is skating on thin ice with his teammates.

Redskins | Big yardage total for Kirk Cousins

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 20:51:12 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 30 of his 43 pass attempts for 329 yards in the Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, he was picked off twice.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins had a lot more passing attempts with the team playing from behind, so that's good for fantasy stats. But they were behind because of a couple of big mistakes by Cousins. Consider him a QB2 heading into Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 12 of his 23 passes for 188 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 21-16 preseason win over the Buffalo Bills Friday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: With solid weapons around him, Cousins could repeat his breakout performance from a year ago. Don't hesitate to draft him as your backup.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins not playing

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 17:09:53 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is not playing in the preseason game against the New York Jets Friday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is receiving a game off and should return to the lineup for the next preseason game. He has one of the better receiver corps to work with and should be a low-end No. 1 or high-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins playing for big money

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 23:55:43 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will receive $19.95 million for one year under the tag this year. The team was unwilling to give him a long-term deal, as general manager Scot McCloughan believes he can find a comparable quarterback who will be much cheaper than Cousins at some point in the next year or two.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is playing for a big contract, as he'll get mega money if he has another strong season in 2016. That extra incentive, along with a healthy receiving corps and top-notch tight end might help him stay on his upward ascension. Heading into 2016 he should be considered as a Top 15 option at his position.

Redskins | Washington made offer to Kirk Cousins

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 12:42:20 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has received an offer from the Redskins worth $16 million per season with $24 million in guaranteed money. Cousins will play under the franchise tag in 2016 for $20 million.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins likely would receive a better deal next offseason if he plays well this season, so he will play on a one-year deal for now. He will have several weapons to work with in the passing game and will be a low-end No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins won't land a deal

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 07:17:16 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has no contract discussions going on, and a source with knowledge of the situation said that no talks will happen. He won't sign a deal before the July 15 deadline for franchise players.

Fantasy Tip: He probably won't "like that," but Cousins established a good building block for his sophomore season as a starter. Some regression from his 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns will be expected, and you'll have to assess the risk and reward with him as a midrange or low-end QB1 in fantasy.
