Redskins | Jay Gruden confirms Kirk Cousins starting

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 09:42:56 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will be the starting quarterback moving forward, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said "it's Kirk's team."

Fantasy Tip: This dispels any possibility the decision was a short-term move based on Robert Griffin III's (concussion) health. Cousins is a low-end QB2 that could be a matchup play on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins named starter

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 06:24:34 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was named the starting quarterback Monday, Aug. 31, over QB Robert Griffin III, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has a little more upside than the "game manager" purgatory, but he's a low-end QB2 in two-QB leagues. RG III should not be drafted at this point.

Redskins | No decision on Washington QB starter

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:40:28 -0700

Washington Redskins QBs Kirk Cousins and Robert Griffin III still don't know who will start Week 1, according to a source. It was previously reported that Cousins was expected to start Week 1 over Griffin.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin's recent concussion issues have made Washington's quarterback situation a complicated one. Again, whoever starts is not worth starting as your fantasy quarterback.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins to start Week 1?

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 08:24:02 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is expected to be the starting quarterback for the team's Week 1 game, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins likely will receive the start if Robert Griffin III is not cleared to play in a few weeks. He has thrown 18 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in 14 career games and should not be a starting option in any fantasy league.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins to start Saturday

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 07:14:00 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will be the starting quarterback for the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29, since QB Robert Griffin III (concussion) has not been cleared to play.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins could open the season as the starting quarterback if Griffin remains sidelined because of his concussion. Cousins has not had a lot of success over the last few seasons and should not be a fantasy option.

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.
