Redskins | Odds strong Kirk Cousins re-signs?

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 09:10:35 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has "become a leader and a fixture at a position of perpetual angst for (team owner Dan) Snyder," according to CBS sports Jason La Confora, who believes there is now an 80 percent chance Cousins signs a long-term deal with the Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: La Confora also suggests letting Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson walk in free agency was a precursor to a long-term deal for Cousins. There has been a lot of positive momentum to reach a long-term deal this summer, and the sides have just under a month to negotiate a contract before Cousins is forced to play under the franchise tag. He figures to be a low-end QB1 in 2017.

Redskins | WAS wants long-term deal for Kirk Cousins

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 14:09:31 -0700

Washington Redskins vice president of player personnel Doug Williams said the team wants to sign QB Kirk Cousins to a long-term extension in the worst way. Williams said the two sides have been negotiating this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins will have about a month to sign Cousins to a long-term deal, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He has thrown for at least 4,100 yards in each of the last two seasons and has posted 54 touchdowns during that time. Cousins did lose his top two receivers in free agency but still has a solid group of pass catchers to work with this season. Cousins can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some leagues.

Redskins | Big season coming for Terrelle Pryor?

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 19:43:01 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor has a chance to reach 1,500 receiving yards as the go-to target for QB Kirk Cousins, according to NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor certainly has the athleticism to be a dominant receiver, and he should have plenty of chances to make plays with Cousins likely to throw early and often. Consider him a high-upside WR2.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins talks pick up

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 05:39:21 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has had encouraging contract talks recently, which owner Daniel Snyder has gotten involved in, and he expressed an interest in re-signing Cousins. There is belief that even if a deal isn't completed by the July 15 franchise tag deadline, one could be completed after the season.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins had the fifth-most fantasy points the last five weeks of the season as well as the entire season. He has been consistently brilliant, and he's knocking on the door of the top couple of tiers at the position in fantasy.

Redskins | Terrelle Pryor focused on chemistry

Sat, 27 May 2017 18:55:50 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor said he is spending as much time as possible with QB Kirk Cousins in order to build trust, and head coach Jay Gruden said the relationship between Pryor and Cousins off the field in translating to success on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Pryor managed to top 1,000 yards for the Browns last year, and he should be one of the main weapons in Washington's passing attack. He offers a lot of potential as a WR3.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins upbeat about extension talks

Sat, 27 May 2017 15:38:40 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins recently characterized his talks about a contract extension as "really positive" and appears content with whatever happens leading up to the July 15 league deadline for franchise-tagged players to hammer out a long-term deal, according to the Washington Post's Liz Clarke.

Fantasy Tip: It's easy for Cousins to be comfortable knowing he's probably going to receive at least $25 million per year beginning in 2018 no matter what the Redskins decide. Although he lost some important weapons and DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon via free agency, the addition of Terrelle Pryor and continued growth of Jamison Crowder should offset that a bit. Cousins should be a solid midrange QB1 in fantasy this season.

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.
