Redskins | Samaje Perine to start?

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 18:56:54 -0800

The Washington Redskins are unlikely to "invest major assets" in the running back position, according to Rich Tandler of NBC Washington, and Tandler believes RB Samaje Perine will enter the 2018 season as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: Perine had a couple of strong performances last year, but he mostly underwhelmed. Throw in his limited work in the passing game, and even if Perine is the starter, he'll only be a RB3 for fantasy owners.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins struggles vs. winning teams

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 14:27:01 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins went 4-19 as the Redskins' starting quarterback against teams that finished their seasons with a winning record.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will receive interest from multiple teams and should receive a lucrative contract if he hits the free-agent market. He has played well over the last few seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending in his new team.

Redskins | A Kirk Cousins tag and trade not realistic

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 13:30:25 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could theoretically be franchise tagged by the Redskins, but if that were to occur then Cousins would not entertain a long-term deal with his new team and he would make a whopping $34 million under the tag. If Cousins did not immediately sign the tag, he could not be traded anyway. Furthermore, the Redskins would not be able to do much else in free agency and also just traded for Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Tagging Cousins makes no sense from Washington's perspective, especially considering the recent acquisition of Smith. Cousins will be playing in a new city in 2018 and the Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Cleveland Browns are the most realistic suitors. Cousins will be a QB1 option wherever he plays, although Minnesota is his best-case scenario on paper.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins to file grievance if tagged

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 11:23:00 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will file a grievance if the Redskins decide to place the franchise tag on him, according to a source. Cousins can argue that the Redskins would be violating the collective bargaining agreement because the team would have no intention in having long-term contract talks with him or having him play on the franchise tag.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins likely will be playing with another team next season, but it is not known if he will hit the free-agent market or if the Redskins will look to trade him. Cousins has played well over the last few seasons and can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on his new team.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins the best available QB?

Sat, 10 Feb 2018 20:19:31 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is the "safest bet at the position, in free agency or the draft," according to an NFL executive.

Fantasy Tip: Several teams are likely to make a run at Cousins this offseason. He has thrown at least 25 touchdowns and topped 4,000 yards in each of the last three seasons and should be able to provide QB1 numbers no matter where he ends up.

Redskins | Chris Thompson thinks he'll return to form

Thu, 08 Feb 2018 22:43:16 -0800

Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) is confident he'll be able to return to his former self once he's fully healed from his broken leg. "So it's just more of me being patient with it, with the rehab, and just kind of being smart," he said in a radio interview. "I'm known to want to progress as fast as I can, so I think if I just stay patient with the process and everything I should be back to what I was before."

Fantasy Tip: Thompson's owners would love to see him build on what was shaping up to be a real solid 2017 campaign for the fourth-year running back. He was well on pace towards shattering career highs in all major categories before going down for the year with his injury, but his future looks bright nonetheless. Even with Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine still under contract, Thompson could end up ascending to lead Washington's backfield.

Redskins | WAS could place franchise tag on Kirk Cousins

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 06:41:00 -0800

The Washington Redskins are considering placing the franchise tag on QB Kirk Cousins in order to trade him and recover some of the compensation they sent to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for QB Alex Smith, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Without the tag being applied to Cousins, the Redskins would receive no compensation and he would be eligible to sign anywhere as a true unrestricted free agent when the new football year begins March 14. Regardless of where he winds up next season, Cousins should be viewed as a low-end QB1 in all fantasy formats.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins surprised by Alex Smith trade

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 11:38:33 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he was surprised when he heard about the Redskins' agreement to acquire Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Smith will be the Redskins starting quarterback for the next several seasons and probably should be considered a high-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues. Cousins should receive a lucrative contract from a team this offseason and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on the team.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins excited about free agency

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 11:20:37 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he is looking forward to hitting the free-agent market because he has not been able to choose the team he plays for since college. He said he will be looking to sign with a team that can win a championship.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins should have several interested teams during free agency and likely will receive a lucrative contract. He has posted good numbers over the last several seasons and can be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season depending on his new team.
