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

Cousins will start at quarterback in Week 1 against Miami, team sources told ESPN's Dianna Russini.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Robert Griffin III missed Saturday's preseason game because of concussion symptoms, and his status isn't clear heading into Week 1. Redskins head coach Jay Gruden is expected to address the media later Monday and likely make the decision official.
Cousins completed 20 of his 27 passes for 190 yards, with a touchdown and an interception, in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.

According to ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini, sources say Washington plans to start Cousins not only Saturday against the Ravens, but also Week 1 of the regular season against the Dolphins.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Cousins starting is probably not a done deal, as NFL Network's Albert Breer also tweeted no final call has been made yet. Griffin has suffered at least three concussions going back to his college days at Baylor, so it's possible that his health is playing a large role in whatever plans Washington is making for Week 1. Either way, there are many moving parts in play here, so the situation will likely remain fluid.
Cousins will get the start against the Ravens on Saturday with Robert Griffin (concussion-like symptoms) out, Ian Rapaport of NFL.com reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

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.
