Redskins | Kirk Cousins negotiating

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 09:07:47 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is engaged in discussions to re-sign with the Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins had a breakout season, and he's a low-end QB1 in fantasy that could have some upside.

Redskins | Long-term deal for Kirk Cousins?

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 16:03:06 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is expected to be re-signed this offseason, and general manager Scot McCloughan prefers signing him to a long-term deal instead of giving their quarterback the franchise tag. A long-term deal would be in the $17-20 million range, according to McCloughan, while Washington would have to pay Cousins about $20 million if they were to tag him.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins was one of the bigger pleasant surprises in football last season, going from unheralded backup to unquestioned starter while leading the Redskins to a NFC East division title and subsequent playoff berth. Those who started Cousins on their fantasy squads in 2015 will have a good taste in their mouths as 2016 approaches, but we still don't know if last season was an anomaly or a sign of things to come.

Redskins | Washington to re-sign Kirk Cousins

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 14:00:54 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will be re-signed this offseason, and head coach Jay Gruden said the organization plans to continue to build around their quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins finally proved he was deserving of his starting status this year, despite the Redskins losing in the first round of the playoffs. Cousins threw 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions and ran for five touchdowns during the regular season. He should be viewed as a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 for next season.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins throws for 329 yards

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:37:27 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 29 of his 46 pass attempts for 329 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the NFC Wild Card Game Sunday, Jan. 10, against the Green Bay Packers. He ran for a touchdown, but also fumbled three times and lost one. He is only the second Redskins QB in franchise history to score a rushing touchdown in the playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins had a pretty nice season overall, throwing for 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns. He is the starter heading into 2016, barring an injury in the offseason or training camp, and he is a Top 15-20 fantasy option at his position.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins on high note

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 10:11:47 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins finished the regular season with three straight games with at least three passing touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Cousins, the Green Bay Packers were a top-five fantasy defense against quarterbacks this season. Cousins definitely plays better at home, though, so should still be a consideration for FantasyScore lineups.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins loves playing at home

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 10:58:47 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins' 74.7% completion percentage at home this season is the highest ever in an NFL season, according to Elias.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) is a solid QB1 option against the Green Bay Packers on FantasyScore for the wild-card round.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins consistent this year

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 13:23:55 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins led the NFL in completion percentage (69.8%) this year and threw a touchdown pass in all 16 games for the first time in Washington history.

Fantasy Tip: While the Green Bay Packers defense has been one of their strengths this year, the Redskins have a legitimate shot at knocking them off with Cousins playing well for much of the year. Green Bay has been a bad fantasy matchup for opposing quarterbacks, too, but you have to at least think Cousins will be serviceable as your starting daily QB.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins stellar in light duty

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 17:09:01 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 12 of 15 passes for 176 yards and three touchdowns before being lifted in the second quarter in a 34-23 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins is playing as well as any quarterback heading into the postseason, and he could be a solid value at FantasyScore depending on his price tag.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins starting

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 12:16:32 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will start in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Jay Gruden, despite the Redskins having nothing to play for. Cousins' snap count is still to be determined.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) is starting, but he may not play very long since the Redskins have nothing to play for as they secured the No. 4 seed last week. It's highly unlikely that Cousins will play the whole game, so it's probably best to avoid him when setting your FantasyScore lineups.

Redskins | Could Redskins rest starters?

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 09:27:52 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins could be rested for Week 17 as the team has clinched the division crown. "We'll have to wait and see and talk about it as a staff and see where the injury report stands with Kirk and see how he's feeling," head coach Jay Gruden told reporters Tuesday, via the team's official site. "But I think he is pretty injury free, but if he is injury free, a lot will depend on who's playing around him, and go from there."

Fantasy Tip: Cousins ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) could only play a few series against the Dallas Cowboys, and he's not a good FantasyScore start.
