Kirk Cousins: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

It's unclear who will start at quarterback in Week 8 for the Redskins, the Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Cousins was benched in the second half of Week 7 versus the Titans, Colt McCoy played well in relief, and Robert Griffin III (ankle) is scheduled to return to practice this week. It will be important to see who takes the most practice reps this week.
Cousins was replaced by Colt McCoy as the Redskins' quarterback to begin the second-half of Sunday's game versus the Titans, ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Cousins completed 10-of-16 passes for 139 yards and an interception, and also lost a fumble in a lackluster first-half Sunday. With the Redskins aiming to invigorate their offense, coach Jay Gruden opted to give McCoy the opportunity to start the second-half, which resulted in a 70-yard touchdown pass on Washington's first drive.
Cousins completed 24-of-38 passes for 354 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's 30-20 loss at Arizona.

With Robert Griffin having dislocated his left ankle Sunday, Cousins is slated to handle Washington's QB duties in the coming weeks, the Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

At this point, the main variable is how long the injury will keep Griffin out, with tests Monday on tap to get a better idea on that front. In any case, Cousins merits a pickup for those looking to bolster their QB situations, and of course, represents a priority add for those who roster Griffin.
Cousins came on for an injured Robert Griffin (ankle) in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars and completed 22-of-33 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Cousins looked really good in limited 2012 action, completing 68.8 percent of his passes and averaging 9.7 YPA. In his lone start, Cousins completed 26 of his 37 passes for 329 yards and two scores. Of course, he's merely Robert Griffin's backup and RGIII (coming off a serious knee injury) looking good to go for the Redskins' season opener.

2012

Cousins was drafted in the fourth round in 2012. He will compete for the backup quarterback position with veteran and former starter Rex Grossman. The team loved the value of taking Cousins in the fourth round as he was consider a potential starter. The team is heavily invested in starter Robert Griffin III so don't expect Cousins to see the field unless something catastrophic happened to Griffin.
