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.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins mediocre in Week 1

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 14:01:55 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was 23-for-40 for 240 yards with one touchdown and an interception in a 30-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Philadelphia was 13th in the league in pass defense last year with 239.5 yards given up per game. The number of dropped balls and missed opportunities could be a concern, but this is also a big rivalry. The fact Cousins couldn't close the deal at home could be something to watch, but Cousins had a subpar preseason and this could be a hangover. Keep him as a QB1 for now.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins falls flat

Sun, 27 Aug 2017 17:08:49 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 10 of his 19 passes for 109 yards and an interception in a 23-17 preseason win over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins hasn't made many big plays this preseason, and Washington's revamped receiving corps could be contributing to the slow start. While the faces have changed a bit, he still has plenty of weapons at his disposal, so expect him to iron things out sooner rather than later and put together another season of QB1 production.

Redskins | Quiet debut for Josh Doctson

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 21:11:24 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) made his preseason debut Saturday, Aug. 19, and finished with one catch for 12 yards in a 21-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers, and John Keim of ESPN.com believes Doctson and QB Kirk Cousins need more time to work together to develop trust.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries have stunted Doctson's growth, but a steady role in a solid passing attack makes him worth grabbing as an upside WR5.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins off the mark

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 21:02:04 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 14 of his 23 pass attempts for 144 yards and a touchdown in a 21-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the preseason Saturday. Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't the most efficient stat line for Cousins, but on the plus side, he was putting the ball in the air early and often. He has solid weapons around him and should be in line for another season of QB1 production.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins wants to stay in Washington

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 11:41:37 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins does not want to sign with another team when he becomes a free agent next offseason. Cousins loves playing for the Redskins and hopes to remain there for the entirety of his career.

Fantasy Tip: The desire is there, but Cousins and the Redskins have had difficult contract negotiations in the past. Nonetheless, Cousins is a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in 2017, even with the losses of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson.

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.

Fantasy Tip: The bottom line is that Cousins will still play for the Redskins in 2017. He's set to make a lot of money next year, though, whether that's from the Redskins or someone else. 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.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins was offered big money

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.
