Redskins | Trade for Kirk Cousins still possible

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 11:35:48 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins "remains in play" to be traded despite receiving the exclusive franchise tag on Tuesday, Feb. 28, according to the Washington Post's Mark Maske.

Fantasy Tip: ESPN's John Keim reported earlier Tuesday the San Francisco 49ers are the only team Cousins is willing to sign a long-term contract with "right now" - a move that would reunite him with his former offensive coordinator (and new 49ers head coach) Kyle Shanahan. Maske does nothing to dispute that possibility. San Francisco has ten draft picks at the moment, including No. 2 overall, so it has the ammunition to pull the trigger. A move to the bay area would send Cousins into fantasy QB2 territory in 2017.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins gets exclusive franchise tag

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 10:43:39 -0800

Impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins (Redskins) received the exclusive franchise tag on Tuesday, Feb. 28, prohibiting him to negotiate with other teams.

Fantasy Tip: The only real question for weeks was whether or not Washington would choose the exclusive or non-exclusive tag, so this answers that question. The exclusive tag guarantees Cousins a 20-percent raise on his 2016 salary of $19.953 million, but the fact the Redskins don't appear anywhere close to signing him long-term throws gas on the fire to the rumors he could leave for the San Francisco 49ers after the season. For 2017, however, Cousins projects to be a low-end QB1 in fantasy.

Redskins | WAS unlikely to pursue Latavius Murray

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 16:58:37 -0800

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Latavius Murray is not expected to be an option for the Washington Redskins during free agency, in the opinion of CSNMidAtlantic.com's Rich Tandler.

Fantasy Tip: Murray is not expected to return to the Raiders but should receive interest from a few teams during free agency. He may not be able to find a starting job but should have a solid role with a team in 2017. He probably should be considered a No. 3 fantasy running back at this point. Rob Kelley likely will be the starter for the Redskins and can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 back for fantasy owners.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins should be tagged

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 11:04:02 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is expected to receive the franchise tag before the franchise tag deadline Wednesday, March 1.

Fantasy Tip: This won't be a big surprise if/when it happens. It makes sense for Washington to tag Cousins again so they have more time to discuss a long-term contract. Cousins has solidified his place in QB1 territory after the last two years. Expect another season of 4,000 or more yards and at least a couple dozen touchdowns.

Redskins | Josh Doctson nearing full health

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:55:02 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') is expected to be 100 percent by the end of March.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson could have a large role with the team with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson likely to hit the open market. He's a WR4 option with upside depending on where he lands on the depth chart.

Redskins | DeAngelo Hall could be released

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 07:35:12 -0800

The Washington Redskins could part ways with FS DeAngelo Hall, who has missed 31 games over the last three seasons and is slated to make $4.25 million in 2017, according to CSNMidAtlantic.com's Rich Tandler. There is also a chance that he could return at a lower salary.

Redskins | Washington interested in Kenny Britt

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 15:20:49 -0800

The Washington Redskins are showing interest in Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Kenny Britt. Britt would be interested in the Redskins if QB Kirk Cousins is their starting quarterback, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins could lose DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free agency this offseason, so Britt may have a significant role if he signed with the Redskins. He posted 1,002 yards and five touchdowns in 2016 and should receive interest from multiple teams. He probably would be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver if he signs with Washington.

Redskins | Washington to talk to own FAs at combine

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:28:12 -0800

The Washington Redskins have yet to engage in talks with any of their players with expiring contracts - a list that includes impending free agents WR Pierre Garcon, WR DeSean Jackson, TE Vernon Davis, DE Chris Baker. However, multiple sources report the Redskins expect to meet with the representatives of their impending free agents at the NFL Scouting Combine next week.

Fantasy Tip: It's a common practice for front office personnel and player reps to discuss contracts at the combine, although Washington is making an already very long week even longer by handling its business in this manner. Garcon and Jackson are each expected to command at least $9 million in their next contracts, so both players could be on different teams next season. It's a virtual certainty at least one will not come back.

Redskins | Josh Doctson running drills

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 08:33:38 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (Achilles') was doing drills at the team's facility Friday, Feb. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson could have a large role next year with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson potentially gone. He'll have to prove it in camp, though. He's a WR4 option with upside depending on how things shake out.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins red-hot during middle of 2016

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 20:30:18 -0800

Impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins was mostly average as a passer in September (79-of-124 for 989 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions) and December (85-of-134, 1,090 yards, four TDs and three interceptions) but excelled in October and November (combined 220-of-313 for 2,551 yards, 17 TDs and four interceptions).

Fantasy Tip: Included in that midseason explosion was a 375-yard, three-score performance against a shorthanded Green Bay Packers secondary and garbage-time inspired 449-yard, three-TD effort on Thanksgiving Day against the Dallas Cowboys. Cousins is likely to receive the franchise tag soon, but it fair to wonder if he deserves it. He is certain to be drafted as a QB1 in the likely event he remains with Washington this season, but he could disappoint with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon likely departing via free agency.

Redskins | DeSean Jackson wants to play with great QB

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 19:07:07 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson said that if he leaves the team in free agency, he wants to play with a "great quarterback." When asked about QB Kirk Cousins, he referred to him as "great" as well.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson has also been linked to the Eagles and Buccaneers, both led by young quarterbacks who have the potential to be great one day, but with Jackson entering the latter portion of his career, he might prefer to stick with a more established option like Cousins. Despite being 30 years old, Jackson proved this past season he still has more than enough left in the tank, and can still offer solid value depending on where he ends up in 2017.
