Redskins | Three scores for Kirk Cousins

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 18:27:21 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 22 of his 32 passes for 322 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-31 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins had thrown one touchdown or less in his three previous games, so Sunday's performance offers hope for fantasy owners. He could be a low-end QB1 against the New York Giants in Week 12.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins runs for two TDs

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 18:11:50 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 26 of his 45 pass attempts for 327 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 10 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He also ran for a pair of touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has tossed just two TDs over his past three games, but the rushing scores and big passing yardage helped fantasy owners in this one. He remains a low-end QB1 fantasy option heading into Week 11 on the road against the New Orleans Saints.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins passes for 247 yards

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 20:43:30 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 21 of his 31 pass attempts for 247 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 9 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: The performance by Cousins, and particularly Washington as a whole, was shocking. The team was missing two tight ends, several offensive linemen and Jamison Crowder, a top receiver, but they went on the road and won a tough road game.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins too conservative?

Sat, 04 Nov 2017 18:29:40 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins needs to take more shots down the field, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "That's probably the one area that we can force the issue on a little bit to give these receivers chances down the field," Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will be playing in a tough environment at Seattle in Week 9, and he could have trouble creating big plays with multiple starters missing along the offensive line and in the receiving corps. If you have a quality backup with a solid matchup, you may want to bench Cousins.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins leads shorthanded offense

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 16:09:46 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will be facing the Seattle Seahawks in Week 9, but he will not have two tight ends, two starting offensive linemen, a key reserve lineman and he might also be missing his top wide receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is a very risky fantasy play, as he could be on his back a lot. And when he is able to throw, he'll have the dependable Vernon Davis, but Jordan Reed and Niles Paul are already out. Jamison Crowder might also be sidelined. It's a MASH unit in Washington right now, and Cousins could struggle against an aggressive Seahawks defense as a result.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins has real strong showing on MNF

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 21:25:20 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 30 of 40 passes for 303 yards, while also tossing three touchdown passes and one interception in the team's Week 7 game Monday, Oct. 23, versus the Philadelphia Eagles. In addition, he picked up 18 rushing yards on three carries.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has now registered 300-yard efforts in three of his last four games, amassing 10 touchdowns compared to just two interceptions over that span. He's typically a lower-end QB1 to roll with, but ever since his disappointing performance in the season opener, Cousins has actually been amongst the best quarterbacks in all of football. If he keeps up his recent play, he'll continue to be a viable option for all leagues.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins scores three times

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 18:42:17 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 25 of his 37 passes for 330 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and ran four times for 26 yards and a touchdown in a 26-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Washington almost blew a big lead, but Cousins finished with a strong stat line and has now accounted for multiple touchdowns in three straight games. Up next is a rematch with a Philadelphia Eagles team that kept Cousins in check in Week 1, but he is playing well enough to deploy as a low-end QB1.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins churns out solid MNF outing

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 21:06:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 14 of 24 passes for 215 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the team's Week 4 loss Monday, Oct. 2, against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also added seven rushes for 38 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Despite registering his fewest pass attempts in a game since last December, Cousins ended up being efficient anyway in terms of fantasy scoring. It also helped that he didn't turn the ball over. Cousins continues to serve as a fine lower-end QB1 and as impressive as he's been over the last few seasons, 2017 is shaping up to be his best one yet, as he's on pace for a career-high QB rating.
