Redskins | Kirk Cousins talks going nowhere

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 23:21:39 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has had discussions about a long-term deal over the last week, but talks continue to go nowhere. He's expected to play 2016 on the $19.95 million franchise tender.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins burst onto the scene last season and put himself amongst the midrange of the position in fantasy. The team added another receiver in Josh Doctson in the draft, and Cousins has a path paved to do it again. He'll be in the discussion after the first five quarterbacks or so are taken.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins taking charge

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 11:32:31 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins had some good and bad days during offseason practices, but it's clear that he's taking charge of the offense more and being decisive.

Fantasy Tip: The million dollar question for fantasy owners this year is whether Cousins can repeat his career year from 2015 or even top it. It remains to be seen, but he surely has the weapons to do so again in 2016. Cousins has low-end QB1 appeal but is probably best taken as a top-tier fantasy backup to be safe.

Redskins | Contract not bothering Kirk Cousins

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 14:43:16 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is not focused on a long-term deal this offseason. The deadline to reach a deal is July 15, and Cousins and the Redskins will not be permitted to negotiate a deal until the end of the 2016 season if they do not reach a deal by July 15.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is doing and saying the right things heading into 2016. It remains to be seen if last season was an anomaly for Cousins, but drafting him as a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 is ideal.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins looking to improve

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 10:14:35 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said receiving all of the snaps with the first-team offense during organized team activities has helped him because he believes he can build on his 2015 performance. "I do think I'm playing with more confidence," Cousins said. "I have a better understanding of defenses and our scheme and our protections and our routes. And, as a result, I'm able to grow as a player."

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is familiar with the offense and should be able to record better numbers with the passing options the team has on the roster. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or terrific No. 2 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins not close to long-term deal

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 09:50:46 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said there has been no progress in contract talks with the Redskins. The Redskins have until July 15 to work out a long-term contract with Cousins.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will be the starting quarterback in 2016 and will look to improve on his 2015 stats. He will have several weapons to work with in the passing game this season and should be considered a terrific No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins staying prepared

Tue, 31 May 2016 02:54:43 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has been calling former NFL quarterbacks for advice on how to approach the offseason. "I've called a few starting quarterbacks around the league, a few of the retired guys who had great careers, and just asked them what worked for them in the offseason" Cousins said.

Fantasy Tip: While he doesn't have a proven history, Cousins showed enough potential last season to be viewed as a high-end QB2 entering 2016.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins expects talks to heat up

Mon, 16 May 2016 16:43:23 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said he believes long-term contract talks will intensify closer to the July 15 deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will play for the Redskins for at least one more year and is not worried about his contract status. Cousins played well as the starter in 2015 and will have plenty of weapons to work with on offense. Cousins should be seen as a low-end No. 1 or a terrific No. 2 quarterback in most leagues.

Redskins | Jordan Reed vital to Kirk Cousins

Thu, 05 May 2016 09:51:41 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed's presence on the field successfully skewed QB Kirk Cousins' numbers in 2015. In 421 pass plays with Reed on the field, Cousins threw for 7.7 yards per attempt with a 111.9 passer rating and 24 touchdowns to four interceptions. When Reed wasn't on the field, Cousins threw for 6.2 yards per attempt with five scores, seven interceptions and a 73.3 rating in 148 plays.

The Redskins were 6-1 when Reed earned more than 65 receiving yards this season and 3-4 when the tight end went under that plateau.

Fantasy Tip: Reed had a big 87-952-11 season, and the team supplemented the offense with WR Josh Doctson in the draft. Reed is an upper-middle TE1, and Cousins is around the same range of quarterbacks. Doctson will give a clearer outlook in training camp, but he's not a bad WR4 gamble

Redskins | Kirk Cousins fine with contract status

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:41:40 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said he is comfortable with playing under the one-year franchise tag if the team wants to see him play in more games before they give him a long-term deal. Cousins also said he would be fine if the team wanted to give him a long-term deal before next season. "I think that people make great decisions when they have a lot of information at their disposal, and if the Redskins would like more information from this next season to be able to make a decision on me long-term, I totally understand that and understand where they're coming from," Cousins said. "If they feel like they have enough information and want to make that call right now, then great, too. But I think the ball's in their court and I will react accordingly to whatever decision they make. But I am totally comfortable playing more football, and frankly, if I don't play well next season, I don't deserve to be back. I don't deserve to have a long-term deal. I want to go out and earn it, and prove myself, and if I need to prove myself again, that's fine. I'll go see if I can do that."

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will be with the Redskins for at least one more season and will have plenty of weapons to work with in the passing game. He is coming off a solid 2015 season and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins optimistic for deal

Mon, 02 May 2016 08:07:54 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is optimistic about signing a long-term deal before the season starts. "I think there's a chance," Cousins said. "The ball's in the court of the Redskins."

Fantasy Tip: Cousins emerged in a big way last season, but was it a fluke? That's the question most owners will have to debate when selecting him as a low-end QB1 this season.
