Redskins | Colt McCoy, Kirk Cousins battling

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 16:58:55 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy replaced QB Robert Griffin III (concussion, shoulder) when he was injured in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 20, not QB Kirk Cousins. Cousins is expected to be the backup entering the season, but head coach Jay Gruden said it remains an "open competition" for the backup job.

Fantasy Tip: With RG3 already injured behind a porous offensive line, there's a good chance that we see Washington's backup quarterback at some point this season. Cousins has more fantasy upside, but turnovers remain a big issue. Neither Cousins nor McCoy should be drafted.

Jets | Geno Smith nearly replaced by Cousins

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 09:39:54 -0700

New York Jets QB Geno Smith was nearly replaced by Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins, whom the team would have traded for if they hired Dan Quinn as head coach. Quinn wanted to bring Kyle Shanahan aboard as offensive coordinator, and the tandem sought to acquire Cousins to be the starting quarterback for the Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Fitzpatrick has a chance to keep the starting job once Smith returns from his broken jaw. Both signal callers are QB2's that should be left on waivers except in deeper leagues.

Redskins | Jamison Crowder making plays

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 19:25:19 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder has stood out in training camp, and he was on the receiving end of a 50-yard pass from QB Kirk Cousins Friday, July 31. "He has done a great job," head coach Gruden said. "He's very smart. He went to Duke and understands the passing game, understands route concepts. He has got good, strong hands, [is] very quick in and out of breaks. But he does have a role as a punt returner, for sure."

Redskins | Washington backup QB job up for grabs

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 21:06:52 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy and QB Kirk Cousins have created no separation from each other in their battle to be the primary backup quarterback in 2015, and head coach Jay Gruden said their performance in the preseason games could be the deciding factor.

Fantasy Tip: With Robert Griffin III slated to start, McCoy and Cousins will need an injury or extremely poor play on the part of RGIII to have any fantasy value in 2015.

Redskins | Competition not going away for RGIII

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 16:28:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will be the first-team quarterback during offseason workouts, according to head Jay Gruden, but Gruden also said he expects QB Kirk Cousins and QB Colt McCoy to be on the roster when the regular season begins.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has the most upside among the three, but his injury history and the lack of support he seems to have received from the coaching staff at times makes him a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option. He is worth taking a chance on in drafts but only after you have secured a more reliable starting quarterback.
