Redskins | Kirk Cousins can still improve

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 14:39:25 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins needs to improve reading coverages and making off-script plays if he wants to take his game to the next level, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has put together solid back-to-back seasons now, amassing over 9,000 passing yards combined in that span. He should make a pretty nice paycheck this offseason and is easily a QB1 consideration for 2017 fantasy drafts.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins totals 300 yards, three TDs

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 15:56:55 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins went 18-of-29 for 270 yards and one touchdowns and rushed five times for 30 yards and two more touchdowns in a Week 16 win over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins scored on a read-option play inside the 10 in the first half and again on a quarterback sneak in the third quarter. Cousins did most of his damage in the first half on chunk plays to DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon before Washington took the air out of the ball for most of the second half. The Redskins will be playing for their playoff lives next week against the New York Giants, and Cousins should be treated as a low-end QB1 at best in that difficult matchup.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins could receive franchise tag

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 06:29:41 -0800

The Washington Redskins are expected to place the franchise tag on QB Kirk Cousins if they are unable to agree to a long-term contract extension by the time free agency opens in March, according to a source familiar with the situation. Cousins is earning $19.95 million this season.

Fantasy Tip: The 28-year-old Cousins is having a remarkable season, with a 101.4 quarterback rating, 3,540 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and just seven interceptions through 11 games. He should be viewed as a low-end QB1 in the majority of fantasy leagues.

Redskins | Red zone issues for Kirk Cousins

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 20:27:26 -0800

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said there is not one "overarching fix" to an offense that ranks 28th in the NFL in red zone touchdown efficiency.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the issues in the red zone, Cousins has enjoyed a strong season and is currently on pace to eclipse 5,000 yards. Deploy him as a low-end QB1 against the Cardinals in Week 13.
