RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Cousins played in six games in 2014, registering 1,710 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and nine interceptions following a dislocated ankle that caused Robert Griffin III to miss significant time. Whispers arose that Cousins was better suited for Head Coach Jay Grudenís system, but several mediocre performances sent him back to the bench in favor of Colt McCoy. After approaching the 2015 campaign competing once again with McCoy for backup duty, the franchise switched QB gears in late August, when coach Jay Gruden confirmed that Cousins will be Washington's starter for the upcoming season.

2014

Cousins is destined to backup RGIII again in 2014. He played in five games in 2013 and did not perform as well as his rookie season. He completed 52 percent of his passes including four touchdowns and seven interceptions. RGIII is a year removed from reconstructive knee surgery and is healthy going into training camp which means Cousins is not expected to see the field.

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.
