Kirk Cousins

Washington Redskins

What Up Cuz?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden told @SlaterNFL they are at the mercy of how LT Trent Williams (knee) feels. I’m told he IS planning to play tonight, somehow. Gruden has called his knee injury something most players couldn't play through.

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

Washington Looking to Expose the Giants D

Fantasy Goo: The Redskins have the highest implied team total (26.25) for the 3 game Thanksgiving slate. Combine that with the wretched condition of the Giants D means a few Cousins/Davis stacks should be in order.

Gruden Wants What?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden wants Kirk Cousins to take more shots downfield.
Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed are RULED OUT for Week 9.
WTF? How is he going to do that with his top two receivers out and three offensive linemen still down? I’m betting on the Seattle secondary at home shutting down this passing game. I’m fading Washington except for Chris Thompson, there will be plenty of dump-off's still coming his way, especially operating in negative game script.

Kirk Cousins

Washington Redskins

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Washington Redskins

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

Washington Redskins

Kirk is a solid start anytime he plays the Eagles


The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Tag You're It!!

Kirk Cousins performing... Ok


Kirk Cousins' passing stats fall fairly in line with last years numbers, the biggest difference is he wasn't going to score 5 rush TDs again. Cousins is on pace for more passing yards than last season with a downtick in touchdown passes, but stands as a backend QB1 with some upside.

Captain Kirk on a lofty pace


Kirk Cousins is on pace to throw for over 5,000 yards this season. 5,274 to be exact. Unfortunately for owners he is also on pace for 16 touchdowns against 16 interceptions.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Kirk Cousins

Washington Redskins

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

DeSean Jackson participated at OTA on Monday


"Last time I looked up the word voluntary, it's his choice," Jay Gruden said. "He knows what type of shape he needs to come in. He'll be ready to go." His absence did not bother the quarterback. “He knows what is best for him and what he needs to get ready for the fall,” said Kirk Cousins.

Fantasy Goo: Mr. Jackson, if you‘re nasty. DeSean Jackson could be a big jumper in this year’s wide receiver tiers and draft spots. Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016. Jackson is still the bread winner for wide receivers on the team if he wants it. DeSean is a very hot or cold player to roster so be ready to cheer and cry if you take him in 2016. He will go as far as Kirk Cousins lets him go. The NFC East is full of defenses that cannot cover receivers.

Redskins and free agent Kirk Cousins remain in long-term contract negotiations.


Mike Florio stated that A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the two sides have not stopped talking, contrary to an ESPN report that talks have ended.

The team apparently believes that Cousins wants to stay. Other teams apparently believe it, too. To get other teams to drive up the market, other teams have to believe that their offers would be something more than leverage aimed at getting Washington to sweeten the deal.

Washington Redskins

GM Scot McCloughan said he wants to work out a "long-term deal" with impending free agent Kirk Cousins.


“I saw improvement as the season went on,” McCloughan said. “From the standpoint of going forward, of course I’d like to have him around. Our philosophy with me and the organization is we won’t talk contract stuff with the media, but I want him to be a part of the Redskins.”

Cousins set the franchise record with 4,166 passing yards, finishing 10th in the league. He was also fifth in passer rating (101.6), eighth in yards per attempt (7.67) and tied for 12th in touchdown passes (29). He was voted as co-Most Improved Player of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America along with Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman.--WP

Kirk Cousins developing into a fine quarterback


The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement. But a lot has to do with the development of quarterback Kirk Cousins and protection provided by the offensive line. In the last four games, the Redskins have averaged 12.56 yards per completion compared with 10.02 in the first 11 games. -- John Keim

Jay Gruden said he has "to be smart" about resting players Week 17 against the Cowboys.


Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

Kirk Cousins won't be benched for Week 7


According to Washington Redskins twitter "Gruden says he's given no consideration to making change at the QB position. "I'm not looking to make any drastic changes right now."

Who would he turn to? We all know he isnt going to go in the direction of RG III and Colt McCoy isnt anywhere near a better solution.

Kirk Cousins performing... Ok


Kirk Cousins' passing stats fall fairly in line with last years numbers, the biggest difference is he wasn't going to score 5 rush TDs again. Cousins is on pace for more passing yards than last season with a downtick in touchdown passes, but stands as a backend QB1 with some upside.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

DeSean Jackson participated at OTA on Monday


"Last time I looked up the word voluntary, it's his choice," Jay Gruden said. "He knows what type of shape he needs to come in. He'll be ready to go." His absence did not bother the quarterback. “He knows what is best for him and what he needs to get ready for the fall,” said Kirk Cousins.

Fantasy Goo: Mr. Jackson, if you‘re nasty. DeSean Jackson could be a big jumper in this year’s wide receiver tiers and draft spots. Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016. Jackson is still the bread winner for wide receivers on the team if he wants it. DeSean is a very hot or cold player to roster so be ready to cheer and cry if you take him in 2016. He will go as far as Kirk Cousins lets him go. The NFC East is full of defenses that cannot cover receivers.

Cousins set the franchise record with 4,166 passing yards, finishing 10th in the league. He was also fifth in passer rating (101.6), eighth in yards per attempt (7.67) and tied for 12th in touchdown passes (29).

Kirk Cousins developing into a fine quarterback


The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement. But a lot has to do with the development of quarterback Kirk Cousins and protection provided by the offensive line. In the last four games, the Redskins have averaged 12.56 yards per completion compared with 10.02 in the first 11 games. -- John Keim

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

Kirk is a solid start anytime he plays the Eagles


The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Kirk Cousins

Washington Redskins

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

Kirk is a solid start anytime he plays the Eagles


The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

Fantasy Goo: Mr. Jackson, if you‘re nasty. DeSean Jackson could be a big jumper in this year’s wide receiver tiers and draft spots. Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016. Jackson is still the bread winner for wide receivers on the team if he wants it. DeSean is a very hot or cold player to roster so be ready to cheer and cry if you take him in 2016. He will go as far as Kirk Cousins lets him go. The NFC East is full of defenses that cannot cover receivers.

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

What Up Cuz?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden told @SlaterNFL they are at the mercy of how LT Trent Williams (knee) feels. I’m told he IS planning to play tonight, somehow. Gruden has called his knee injury something most players couldn't play through.

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

Kirk Cousins won't be benched for Week 7


According to Washington Redskins twitter "Gruden says he's given no consideration to making change at the QB position. "I'm not looking to make any drastic changes right now."

Who would he turn to? We all know he isnt going to go in the direction of RG III and Colt McCoy isnt anywhere near a better solution.

What Up Cuz?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden told @SlaterNFL they are at the mercy of how LT Trent Williams (knee) feels. I’m told he IS planning to play tonight, somehow. Gruden has called his knee injury something most players couldn't play through.

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

Washington Redskins

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

Kirk is a solid start anytime he plays the Eagles


The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

Fantasy Goo: Mr. Jackson, if you‘re nasty. DeSean Jackson could be a big jumper in this year’s wide receiver tiers and draft spots. Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016. Jackson is still the bread winner for wide receivers on the team if he wants it. DeSean is a very hot or cold player to roster so be ready to cheer and cry if you take him in 2016. He will go as far as Kirk Cousins lets him go. The NFC East is full of defenses that cannot cover receivers.

Mike Florio stated that A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the two sides have not stopped talking, contrary to an ESPN report that talks have ended.

The team apparently believes that Cousins wants to stay. Other teams apparently believe it, too. To get other teams to drive up the market, other teams have to believe that their offers would be something more than leverage aimed at getting Washington to sweeten the deal.

Cousins set the franchise record with 4,166 passing yards, finishing 10th in the league. He was also fifth in passer rating (101.6), eighth in yards per attempt (7.67) and tied for 12th in touchdown passes (29).

Kirk Cousins developing into a fine quarterback


The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement.

In the last four games, the Redskins have averaged 12.56 yards per completion compared with 10.02 in the first 11 games. -- John Keim

Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016.

Redskins and free agent Kirk Cousins remain in long-term contract negotiations.


Mike Florio stated that A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the two sides have not stopped talking, contrary to an ESPN report that talks have ended.

The team apparently believes that Cousins wants to stay. Other teams apparently believe it, too. To get other teams to drive up the market, other teams have to believe that their offers would be something more than leverage aimed at getting Washington to sweeten the deal.

GM Scot McCloughan said he wants to work out a "long-term deal" with impending free agent Kirk Cousins.


“I saw improvement as the season went on,” McCloughan said. “From the standpoint of going forward, of course I’d like to have him around. Our philosophy with me and the organization is we won’t talk contract stuff with the media, but I want him to be a part of the Redskins.”

Cousins set the franchise record with 4,166 passing yards, finishing 10th in the league. He was also fifth in passer rating (101.6), eighth in yards per attempt (7.67) and tied for 12th in touchdown passes (29). He was voted as co-Most Improved Player of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America along with Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman.--WP

Kirk Cousins developing into a fine quarterback


The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement. But a lot has to do with the development of quarterback Kirk Cousins and protection provided by the offensive line. In the last four games, the Redskins have averaged 12.56 yards per completion compared with 10.02 in the first 11 games. -- John Keim

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

Washington Redskins

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Kirk Cousins performing... Ok


Kirk Cousins' passing stats fall fairly in line with last years numbers, the biggest difference is he wasn't going to score 5 rush TDs again. Cousins is on pace for more passing yards than last season with a downtick in touchdown passes, but stands as a backend QB1 with some upside.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

Kirk Cousins performing... Ok


Kirk Cousins' passing stats fall fairly in line with last years numbers, the biggest difference is he wasn't going to score 5 rush TDs again. Cousins is on pace for more passing yards than last season with a downtick in touchdown passes, but stands as a backend QB1 with some upside.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

"Last time I looked up the word voluntary, it's his choice," Jay Gruden said. "He knows what type of shape he needs to come in. He'll be ready to go." His absence did not bother the quarterback. “He knows what is best for him and what he needs to get ready for the fall,” said Kirk Cousins.

Fantasy Goo: Mr. Jackson, if you‘re nasty. DeSean Jackson could be a big jumper in this year’s wide receiver tiers and draft spots. Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016. Jackson is still the bread winner for wide receivers on the team if he wants it. DeSean is a very hot or cold player to roster so be ready to cheer and cry if you take him in 2016. He will go as far as Kirk Cousins lets him go. The NFC East is full of defenses that cannot cover receivers.

Cousins set the franchise record with 4,166 passing yards, finishing 10th in the league. He was also fifth in passer rating (101.6), eighth in yards per attempt (7.67) and tied for 12th in touchdown passes (29).

Kirk Cousins developing into a fine quarterback


The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement.

In the last four games, the Redskins have averaged 12.56 yards per completion compared with 10.02 in the first 11 games. -- John Keim

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

Kirk is a solid start anytime he plays the Eagles


The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Washington Redskins

Gruden Wants What?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden wants Kirk Cousins to take more shots downfield.
Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed are RULED OUT for Week 9.
WTF? How is he going to do that with his top two receivers out and three offensive linemen still down? I’m betting on the Seattle secondary at home shutting down this passing game. I’m fading Washington except for Chris Thompson, there will be plenty of dump-off's still coming his way, especially operating in negative game script.

Kirk Cousins

Washington Redskins

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Washington Redskins

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

Washington Redskins

Kirk is a solid start anytime he plays the Eagles


The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Washington Redskins

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

Fantasy Goo: Mr. Jackson, if you‘re nasty. DeSean Jackson could be a big jumper in this year’s wide receiver tiers and draft spots. Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016. Jackson is still the bread winner for wide receivers on the team if he wants it. DeSean is a very hot or cold player to roster so be ready to cheer and cry if you take him in 2016. He will go as far as Kirk Cousins lets him go. The NFC East is full of defenses that cannot cover receivers.

The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement.

In the last four games, the Redskins have averaged 12.56 yards per completion compared with 10.02 in the first 11 games. -- John Keim

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

What Up Cuz?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden told @SlaterNFL they are at the mercy of how LT Trent Williams (knee) feels. I’m told he IS planning to play tonight, somehow. Gruden has called his knee injury something most players couldn't play through.

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

Kirk Cousins won't be benched for Week 7


According to Washington Redskins twitter "Gruden says he's given no consideration to making change at the QB position. "I'm not looking to make any drastic changes right now."

Who would he turn to? We all know he isnt going to go in the direction of RG III and Colt McCoy isnt anywhere near a better solution.

Washington Redskins

What Up Cuz?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden told @SlaterNFL they are at the mercy of how LT Trent Williams (knee) feels. I’m told he IS planning to play tonight, somehow. Gruden has called his knee injury something most players couldn't play through.

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

WTF? How is he going to do that with his top two receivers out and three offensive linemen still down? I’m betting on the Seattle secondary at home shutting down this passing game. I’m fading Washington except for Chris Thompson, there will be plenty of dump-off's still coming his way, especially operating in negative game script.

Washington Redskins

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

Kirk is a solid start anytime he plays the Eagles


The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

"Last time I looked up the word voluntary, it's his choice," Jay Gruden said. "He knows what type of shape he needs to come in. He'll be ready to go." His absence did not bother the quarterback. “He knows what is best for him and what he needs to get ready for the fall,” said Kirk Cousins.

Fantasy Goo: Mr. Jackson, if you‘re nasty. DeSean Jackson could be a big jumper in this year’s wide receiver tiers and draft spots. Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016. Jackson is still the bread winner for wide receivers on the team if he wants it. DeSean is a very hot or cold player to roster so be ready to cheer and cry if you take him in 2016. He will go as far as Kirk Cousins lets him go. The NFC East is full of defenses that cannot cover receivers.

Redskins and free agent Kirk Cousins remain in long-term contract negotiations.


Mike Florio stated that A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the two sides have not stopped talking, contrary to an ESPN report that talks have ended.

The team apparently believes that Cousins wants to stay. Other teams apparently believe it, too. To get other teams to drive up the market, other teams have to believe that their offers would be something more than leverage aimed at getting Washington to sweeten the deal.

Cousins set the franchise record with 4,166 passing yards, finishing 10th in the league. He was also fifth in passer rating (101.6), eighth in yards per attempt (7.67) and tied for 12th in touchdown passes (29).

Kirk Cousins developing into a fine quarterback


The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement. But a lot has to do with the development of quarterback Kirk Cousins and protection provided by the offensive line. In the last four games, the Redskins have averaged 12.56 yards per completion compared with 10.02 in the first 11 games. -- John Keim

Redskins and free agent Kirk Cousins remain in long-term contract negotiations.


Mike Florio stated that A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the two sides have not stopped talking, contrary to an ESPN report that talks have ended.

The team apparently believes that Cousins wants to stay. Other teams apparently believe it, too. To get other teams to drive up the market, other teams have to believe that their offers would be something more than leverage aimed at getting Washington to sweeten the deal.

GM Scot McCloughan said he wants to work out a "long-term deal" with impending free agent Kirk Cousins.


“I saw improvement as the season went on,” McCloughan said. “From the standpoint of going forward, of course I’d like to have him around. Our philosophy with me and the organization is we won’t talk contract stuff with the media, but I want him to be a part of the Redskins.”

Cousins set the franchise record with 4,166 passing yards, finishing 10th in the league. He was also fifth in passer rating (101.6), eighth in yards per attempt (7.67) and tied for 12th in touchdown passes (29). He was voted as co-Most Improved Player of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America along with Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman.--WP

Kirk Cousins developing into a fine quarterback


The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement. But a lot has to do with the development of quarterback Kirk Cousins and protection provided by the offensive line. In the last four games, the Redskins have averaged 12.56 yards per completion compared with 10.02 in the first 11 games. -- John Keim

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

Washington Redskins

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Kirk Cousins performing... Ok


Kirk Cousins' passing stats fall fairly in line with last years numbers, the biggest difference is he wasn't going to score 5 rush TDs again. Cousins is on pace for more passing yards than last season with a downtick in touchdown passes, but stands as a backend QB1 with some upside.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

Kirk Cousins performing... Ok


Kirk Cousins' passing stats fall fairly in line with last years numbers, the biggest difference is he wasn't going to score 5 rush TDs again. Cousins is on pace for more passing yards than last season with a downtick in touchdown passes, but stands as a backend QB1 with some upside.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

Fantasy Goo: Mr. Jackson, if you‘re nasty. DeSean Jackson could be a big jumper in this year’s wide receiver tiers and draft spots. Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016. Jackson is still the bread winner for wide receivers on the team if he wants it. DeSean is a very hot or cold player to roster so be ready to cheer and cry if you take him in 2016. He will go as far as Kirk Cousins lets him go. The NFC East is full of defenses that cannot cover receivers.

Cousins set the franchise record with 4,166 passing yards, finishing 10th in the league. He was also fifth in passer rating (101.6), eighth in yards per attempt (7.67) and tied for 12th in touchdown passes (29).

The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement.

In the last four games, the Redskins have averaged 12.56 yards per completion compared with 10.02 in the first 11 games. -- John Keim

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Fantasy Goo: The Redskins have the highest implied team total (26.25) for the 3 game Thanksgiving slate. Combine that with the wretched condition of the Giants D means a few Cousins/Davis stacks should be in order.

Gruden Wants What?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden wants Kirk Cousins to take more shots downfield.
Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed are RULED OUT for Week 9.
WTF? How is he going to do that with his top two receivers out and three offensive linemen still down? I’m betting on the Seattle secondary at home shutting down this passing game. I’m fading Washington except for Chris Thompson, there will be plenty of dump-off's still coming his way, especially operating in negative game script.

Washington Redskins

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

Kirk is a solid start anytime he plays the Eagles


The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

Fantasy Goo: Mr. Jackson, if you‘re nasty. DeSean Jackson could be a big jumper in this year’s wide receiver tiers and draft spots. Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016. Jackson is still the bread winner for wide receivers on the team if he wants it. DeSean is a very hot or cold player to roster so be ready to cheer and cry if you take him in 2016. He will go as far as Kirk Cousins lets him go. The NFC East is full of defenses that cannot cover receivers.

The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement.

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

What Up Cuz?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden told @SlaterNFL they are at the mercy of how LT Trent Williams (knee) feels. I’m told he IS planning to play tonight, somehow. Gruden has called his knee injury something most players couldn't play through.

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said Sunday that he and his staff have every intention of winning the season finale at Dallas next week, mindful of the rivalry’s importance to the players and fans. But Gruden quickly added, “we also have to be smart” about injuries and making sure that ailing players are taken care of.

Gruden hadn’t yet reviewed the full injury report from Saturday’s 38-24 victory over Philadelphia, which clinched the NFC East Championship and sends the Redskins into the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and only the second time in the last 16 years.

[Five observations from the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles]

His decision about which 46 players will be active for the Jan. 3 game at Dallas will primarily depend on that. The game’s outcome has no bearing on the postseason of either team, given that the Redskins (8-7) have clinched a playoff berth and Dallas (4-11) has been eliminated.

A handful of starters played against the Eagles despite significant injuries, including right tackle Morgan Moses (foot) and safety Dashon Goldson (fractured rib). Defensive back DeAngelo Hall also suffering a calf injury during the game.

Asked if he’d consider limiting quarterback Kirk Cousins’ snaps against Dallas as a precaution, even if healthy, Gruden said he’d discuss the decision with his staff.

“If he’s injury-free, a lot will depend on who’s playing around him,” Gruden said. “We’ll make a decision and go forward.”

As division champions, the Redskins will host a playoff game Jan. 9 or 10 at FedEx Field, with Seattle (9-5), Green Bay (10-4) or Minnesota (9-5) their likely opponent.

Washington’s coaching staff won’t wait until that opponent is clear to launch into playoff preparations but will do so now, starting with Seattle, whom Gruden said he believed is the most likely opponent.

“But we also want to make sure we get our guys ready for the Dallas Cowboys,” Gruden added. “It means a lot for our players, to keep that momentum alive going into the playoffs. The 46 guys who are going to be dressed will be ready to play. As coaches, we’ll get ‘em ready to play.”

Kirk Cousins won't be benched for Week 7


According to Washington Redskins twitter "Gruden says he's given no consideration to making change at the QB position. "I'm not looking to make any drastic changes right now."

Who would he turn to? We all know he isnt going to go in the direction of RG III and Colt McCoy isnt anywhere near a better solution.

What Up Cuz?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden told @SlaterNFL they are at the mercy of how LT Trent Williams (knee) feels. I’m told he IS planning to play tonight, somehow. Gruden has called his knee injury something most players couldn't play through.

Fantasy Goo: The Washington line has been decimated this year, and the WR corps has been relatively disappointing, but somehow Cousins continues to be a top 5 fantasy QB. Williams probably wo’t be a major factor if he plays, but it should give Cousins some extra comfort in the pocket.

Washington Looking to Expose the Giants D


If you toss out the game from last week with gusts of wind over 30MPH, opposing TEs have scored against the Giants in every other game. On Thanksgiving, Cousins and Davis look to continue exposing this positional defensive deficit.

Fantasy Goo: The Redskins have the highest implied team total (26.25) for the 3 game Thanksgiving slate. Combine that with the wretched condition of the Giants D means a few Cousins/Davis stacks should be in order.

Gruden Wants What?


Redskins coach Jay Gruden wants Kirk Cousins to take more shots downfield.
Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed are RULED OUT for Week 9.
WTF? How is he going to do that with his top two receivers out and three offensive linemen still down? I’m betting on the Seattle secondary at home shutting down this passing game. I’m fading Washington except for Chris Thompson, there will be plenty of dump-off's still coming his way, especially operating in negative game script.

Cousins Could Crush in Week 6


Washington has the 2nd highest implied team total in Week 6. They are home to a San Fran team that is currently running the fastest offence in the league (25.36 seconds per play), but they accumulate the lowest time of possession. That spells attempts and opportunity for Washington. PFF has some of the lowest grades for all 3 of San Fran's cornerbacks. So, if you add that up, Cousins should rack up the most attempts and opportunities to score so far this season against, what is collectively, perhaps the worst graded starting secondary so far this season.

Kurt or Kirk?


Captain Kirk, or as the GM likes to call him, "Kurt" will race a Rams D that laid waste to a hapless Colts in the season opener. I am not sure you can draw a one to one correlation since Indy looked like a Div. II team. The Rams do get their big star back in Aaron Donald. Donald ended his contract holdout and returned this week and is expected to be a go Sunday. Cousins needs to perform better that his 23 of 40 240yds 1 TD. He has gambled a lot of money on himself and it will all come to a head this offseason, If he can match his previous 2 campaigns.

Kirk is a solid start anytime he plays the Eagles


The Captain averaged 16.65 points per outing last year against the Eagles, both wins. In 5 starts over the past 3 season against the Flying Green Philly Cheesesteaks, Cousins has thrown for almost 1,600 yards and 12 TDs with only 3 interceptions.

Fantasy Goo: In Week 16 two seasons ago, Kirk lit it up against the Eagles and won ballsy people like myself Championships with his 365 yards and 4 tuddies! I personally think Kirk gets going fast this season, he seems comfortable against the Eagles at the helm of his pass happy attack.

Kirk Cousins performing... Ok


Kirk Cousins' passing stats fall fairly in line with last years numbers, the biggest difference is he wasn't going to score 5 rush TDs again. Cousins is on pace for more passing yards than last season with a downtick in touchdown passes, but stands as a backend QB1 with some upside.

Do The Redskins View Captain Kirk As Replaceable


Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Kirk will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

Will the Redskins sign Kirk Cousins before July 15th


It’s the first of July, and the Redskins now have 14 days remaining to get a long-term contract done with Kirk Cousins if they want to avoid having him play the 2016 season on the franchise tag, and go into the following offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Fantasy Goo: Based on the language of the CBA, there’s an argument to be made that no player may ever be tagged more than three times during the course of his career. This means a solid 2016 year by Cousins could lead to another Tag(s) as he has never been tagged. For fantasy owners this means Kirk will be playing his ass off to make Washington pay him a contract lasting at least a few years. Washington is worried that Cousins might have been on a hot streak during last year which saw 4,166 passing yards and 34 combined touchdowns. Kirk is a super sweet option as your 2nd QB if you like to roster 2 quarterbacks. Kirk is also worth gambling on as the last QB taken in a 12 team draft.

DeSean Jackson

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

DeSean Jackson participated at OTA on Monday


"Last time I looked up the word voluntary, it's his choice," Jay Gruden said. "He knows what type of shape he needs to come in. He'll be ready to go." His absence did not bother the quarterback. “He knows what is best for him and what he needs to get ready for the fall,” said Kirk Cousins.

Fantasy Goo: Mr. Jackson, if you‘re nasty. DeSean Jackson could be a big jumper in this year’s wide receiver tiers and draft spots. Kirk Cousins looks like the best Redskins quarterback in a very long time. The collection of DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Josh Doctson along with tight end Jordan Reed will be challenging to defenses in 2016. Jackson is still the bread winner for wide receivers on the team if he wants it. DeSean is a very hot or cold player to roster so be ready to cheer and cry if you take him in 2016. He will go as far as Kirk Cousins lets him go. The NFC East is full of defenses that cannot cover receivers.

Redskins and free agent Kirk Cousins remain in long-term contract negotiations.


Mike Florio stated that A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the two sides have not stopped talking, contrary to an ESPN report that talks have ended.

The team apparently believes that Cousins wants to stay. Other teams apparently believe it, too. To get other teams to drive up the market, other teams have to believe that their offers would be something more than leverage aimed at getting Washington to sweeten the deal.

GM Scot McCloughan said he wants to work out a "long-term deal" with impending free agent Kirk Cousins.


“I saw improvement as the season went on,” McCloughan said. “From the standpoint of going forward, of course I’d like to have him around. Our philosophy with me and the organization is we won’t talk contract stuff with the media, but I want him to be a part of the Redskins.”

Cousins set the franchise record with 4,166 passing yards, finishing 10th in the league. He was also fifth in passer rating (101.6), eighth in yards per attempt (7.67) and tied for 12th in touchdown passes (29). He was voted as co-Most Improved Player of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America along with Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman.--WP

Kirk Cousins developing into a fine quarterback


The Redskins have done a better job getting bigger plays in the passing game of late. A lot of that stems from wide receiver DeSean Jackson's return and weekly improvement. But a lot has to do with the development of quarterback Kirk Cousins and protection provided by the offensive line. In the last four games, the Redskins have averaged 12.56 yards per completion compared with 10.02 in the first 11 games. -- John Keim
