Redskins | Robert Griffin to be tested Wednesday

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:39:32 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is expected to be put through a rigorous workout Wednesday, Oct. 22, that will give team officials a better idea of where he's at in his recovery. Griffin has already joined practices for stretching, warm-ups, individual drills and limited handoffs with the scout team. Head coach Jay Gruden has said he'd like to have Griffin log at least two weeks of practice before returning to a starting role. QB Colt McCoy appears to have the inside track to start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if it's between he and QB Kirk Cousins. "It's a good sign the way Colt finished the game, ran the offense," Gruden said, alluding to his poise and efficiency in engineering the game-winning touchdown drive on the last possession, which started with 3 minutes and 14 seconds remaining. "Very smart and very efficient. Did some good things."

Fantasy Tip: It would be a surprise to see Griffin start against the Cowboys on Monday night. McCoy will be cheap at FantasyScore, but he's not worth considering on the road against a a stout Dallas D.

Redskins | Colt McCoy enters game

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 12:17:04 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy entered the team's Week 7 game after QB Kirk Cousins was benched.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy likely would be a short-term option at quarterback since Robert Griffin should return in the near future. Owners should not consider starting Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy if they are the options next week.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon backs Kirk Cousins

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 10:11:08 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said the team has plenty of confidence in QB Kirk Cousins despite the team's four-game losing streak in which Cousins has struggled mightily at times. "He's just taking in a lot of stuff right now, but once he gets through this, honestly, he'll be good to go," said Garcon. Cousins has 18 touchdowns, 18 interceptions and five fumbles in 13 career games. Cousins is expected to start in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will cost $7,000 (14.0% of cap) at FantasyScore this week. Although he has a nice matchup against the Tennessee Titans, it's hard to place too much trust in him for your lineups.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins won't be benched

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 11:19:17 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is not in danger of being benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy after the team lost their fourth straight game in Week 6, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Cousins now leads the league with eight interceptions, with seven of them coming in the last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins ($7,000 at FantasyScore this week) faces a weak Tennessee Titans defense in Week 7 at home. Cousins isn't an ideal option for your lineup, but he profiles as a sleeper pick this weekend if you're feeling bold.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins to use whole field

Sun, 05 Oct 2014 09:57:19 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins won't be limited to half the field because of Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman in the team's Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 6, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a dreadful performance in Week 4 and facing a tough Seattle secondary, Cousins is going to have a tough time living up to his $7,500 salary (15% of cap). Owners will want to look elsewhere for a quarterback at FantasyScore in Week 5.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins throws four picks

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 21:38:54 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 19 of his 33 pass attempts for 257 yards and had one touchdown and four interceptions Thursday, Sept. 25. He also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Tip: With a couple more starts like this one, Cousins can forget about hanging on to the starting job when RGIII is healthy. Although he has had some impressive performances, don't forget that Cousins is still relatively inexperienced and is likely to provide inconsistent results from week to week.
