Redskins | Jay Gruden wants long-term answer at QB

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 10:35:08 -0800

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he prefers that impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins signs a long-term deal or the team moves onto another quarterback. "I think something has to be done," Gruden said. "I personally don't want to go through another one-year deal, and just [keep going] one year, one year. I think you want to have a quarterback in here that's going to be here. And hopefully that is Kirk, and if not, we have to move on and do what we have to do as an organization."

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has received the franchise tag for each of the last two seasons and could receive it again if the two sides are not able to agree on a new deal. Cousins can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he returns to the Redskins next season.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins will sign offer if tagged

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 14:43:17 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he would sign the one-year tender offer if he receives the franchise tag again this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has received the franchise tag in each of the last two offseasons, so it will be expensive if the Redskins decide to use it for a third time. He would receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market and should receive a lucrative offer this offseason. Cousins likely will be a starting quarterback next season and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on his team.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins makes franchise history

Mon, 25 Dec 2017 13:21:21 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins became the first quarterback in Redskins' history with three seasons of at least 25 touchdown passes.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will be one of the biggest names in free agency next offseason after receiving Washington's franchise tag for two straight years. It's difficult to gauge his fantasy value not knowing where he'll be playing, but it's unlikely that he'll lose much fantasy value and should remain in the QB1 conversation.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins tosses two TDs

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 14:19:02 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 18 of his 26 pass attempts for 196 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has thrown for 196 or fewer yards in each of the past two games, but he is working on a streak of six games with at least one TD pass. In Week 16 he'll face a Broncos pass defense which ranked No. 2 in yardage, but No. 32 in passing scores allowed.

Redskins | Ugly outing for Kirk Cousins

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 20:23:57 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 15 of his 27 passes for 151 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 30-13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Washington's passing attack was derailed by the pass rush of the Chargers, and Cousins finished with his lowest yardage total of the season. He should be back in the QB1 mix against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins uneven in loss

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 21:33:36 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was 26-for-37 for 251 yards passing, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the team's 24-point loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, Nov. 30. Cousins was also sacked four times and fumbled twice, losing one.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to fault Cousins for much Thursday night. He had no running game, protection issues and both of his picks came off deflections -- one at the line and one off the hands of Jamison Crowder. How much things will improve between now and Week 14, when they face a dangerous Los Angeles Chargers pass rush on the road, is debatable, making the early prospects for Cousins less than ideal.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins sacked six times

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 20:46:03 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 19 of his 31 passes for 242 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and was sacked six times in a 20-10 win over the New York Giants Thursday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Washington's offensive line was missing four starters at times, but Cousins survived to post a serviceable stat line. He will be in the QB1 mix in Week 13 against a struggling Dallas Cowboys team.
