Redskins | Kirk Cousins working on timing

Fri, 26 May 2017 21:11:44 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is still adjusting to throwing jumps ball and back-shoulder fades to WR Terrelle Pryor, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor has elite size and athleticism, and he made a surprisingly quick transition to receiver last year. He could be Cousins' go-to target this season, and Pryor should be drafted as a high-upside WR3.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins could be tagged again

Tue, 23 May 2017 07:32:51 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins could receive a third consecutive franchise tag next offseason, according to team president Bruce Allen. The cost of a third straight franchise tag would be $34 million in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has had two brilliant seasons in a row, and there's very little risk with him as your midrange QB1 if you miss out on the studs.

Browns | Cleveland looking to acquire Kirk Cousins

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 17:56:11 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is a player the Cleveland Browns are trying to acquire.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns have been looking to find a long-term quarterback for a while and are working on acquiring Cousins. Cousins has played well over the last two seasons but received the franchise tag for the second straight offseason. He would be the starting quarterback if the Browns add him, but he would not have a lot of weapons to work with in the passing game. Owners in fantasy leagues can consider Cousins a fringe No. 1 quarterback or a solid No. 2 quarterback.

Redskins | Terrelle Pryor works out with Kirk Cousins

Sat, 15 Apr 2017 12:34:52 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor recently worked out with QB Kirk Cousins in order to work on their timing on the field. Pryor said Cousins also helped him learn the playbook during a meeting they had before working out.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor will be a starter for the Redskins next season and could be the No. 1 receiver depending on who is on the roster. He posted 1,007 yards and four touchdowns in 2016 and could see more targets with Cousins as his quarterback. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins says ball is in team's court

Tue, 11 Apr 2017 19:48:45 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said "the ball's in the team's court" regarding negotiations for a long-term contract, and that he was assured by owner Dan Snyder and president Bruce Allen he won't be traded prior to the upcoming season. "The team would need to make that decision and say that this is a guy we're going to commit to in the long haul," Cousins stated. "I'm very comfortable playing under the franchise tag."

Fantasy Tip: None of this should really be a surprise to anyone. It's already been reported how Washington has immediately shot down any potential trade suitors for the 28-year-old quarterback, while he continues to maintain that he would like to get a long-term deal done with the franchise. Either way, Cousins has the ability to offer sneaky QB1 potential for 2017 later on in drafts.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins hasn't received new offer

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 16:19:47 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins still hasn't received a new offer from the team since February, one that involved getting "roughly" $20 million per year with a low guarantee.

Fantasy Tip: No matter what, Cousins is going to be playing under center once again in Washington in 2017, considering how the club has immediately shot down any trade suitors, but his future with the Redskins beyond next season looks murky. Regardless, he'll enter the new campaign with QB1 potential in fantasy.

Redskins | Redskins shoot down Kirk Cousins suitors

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 20:12:44 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is still garnering interest, as three other teams have tried to trade for him "in the last 10 days or so," only to be "quickly shot down," according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: While Cousins' situation in Washington will be tricky beyond 2017, it appears the club is firmly set with him as their starting quarterback going into next season, and who can blame them? The 28-year-old has topped 4,100 passing yards in each of the past two seasons, while compiling 54 touchdowns compared to only 23 interceptions over that span. He'll have QB1 potential in most formats.

Redskins | Terrelle Pryor to work with Kirk Cousins

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 10:07:09 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor has made plans to practice with Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and wide receivers in late April, Pryor said during his introductory press conference Monday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor has a wealth of upside in this offense and intends to get to work early. This is nothing but good news for fantasy gamers, who should look to him as a WR2.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins won't sign long-term deal

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 10:37:32 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will reportedly not agree to a long-term deal with the team as long as team president Bruce Allen remains in power.

Fantasy Tip: This is a direct response to the haphazard way the Redskins handled the departure of former general manager Scott McCloughan and an unsurprising stand despite the fact the ink is still probably still drying after Cousins signed his one-year franchise tender earlier Friday. With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon gone and so much chaos surrounding the franchise, Cousins is going to be hard to trust in fantasy in 2017.
