Redskins | Josh Doctson key for Kirk Cousins?

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 20:26:23 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson's progression this season could help determine if QB Kirk Cousins decides to sign a long-term extension, according to JP Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson should be the fourth option in a pass-happy attack, and he can be considered an upside WR5 coming off an injury-plagued rookie year.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins wants to stay in Washington

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 16:54:56 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins' first choice is to stay with the Redskins despite both sides not agreeing on a long-term deal. Cousins said he would love to stay in Washington long term and has hope for getting a deal done next offseason.

As for fantasy, Cousins has QB1 appeal after averaging 4,541.5 yards and 27 touchdowns the last two seasons, not to mention he's scored nine times on the ground in that span.

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 13:47:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was offered $53 million guaranteed as part of the Redskins' offer in early May, according to team president Bruce Allen.

Fantasy Tip: We don't know who Cousins will be playing for next season, but we do know that team will need to break the bank in order to sign him. He has quickly turned into one of the most prolific quarterbacks in the NFL over the last two years. View him as a low-end QB1 heading into 2017.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins open to deal after season

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 12:40:27 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is not expected to sign a long-term deal before the 4 p.m. ET deadline Monday, July 17. However, Cousins is reportedly open to doing a deal with the team after this season as there has been "a positive, constructive tone" to recent contract talks, per a source.

Fantasy Tip: It appears one of the NFL's longest ongoing sagas will continue for another few months.

In fantasy, he has settled in as a midrange QB1.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins deal still unlikely

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 05:33:04 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is likely to play for the franchise tag in 2017, and both sides are complacent with it, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has had two-and-a-half brilliant seasons in a row and nearly threw for 5,000 yards last season. He rates just below the elite tier in fantasy, but he's not a bad consolation prize.

Redskins | Washington, Kirk Cousins still not close

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 14:31:48 -0700

The Washington Redskins still have not made much progress in contract talks with QB Kirk Cousins and the two sides are not close to a deal. The Redskins have until Monday, July 17, to sign Cousins to a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has posted terrific numbers over the last two seasons and is looking for a lucrative contract but has not reached an agreement yet. Cousins will continue to be with the Redskins for at least one more season and can still be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback even though he lost his top two receivers in free agency.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins deal still a long shot

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 09:05:10 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins signing a long-term deal before the July 17 deadline remains a long shot.

Fantasy Tip: Our apologies for being Captain Obvious on a soap opera that has been stagnant for a couple of years. Cousins' play has also made him an obvious QB1 in fantasy after the top tier is gone.
