    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Washington GM looking for long-term deal

    Cousins, a free agent, is a target for a long-term deal for Washington GM Scot McLoughan, NFL Network reports. Cousins almost certainly isn't going anywhere in 2016, as Washington can use the franchise tag should contract negotiations stall out this offseason. McLoughan praised Cousins's improvement throughout the season, but we'll have to see if it was enough for Washington to be willing to pony up the kind of $17-20 million average annual salary Cousins may require to lock up long-term.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Throws for 329 yards against the Packers

    Cousins completed 29 of 46 passes for 329 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. He scored a rushing touchdown and fumbled three times during the game. Cousins set the league on fire during Washington's final push toward the division crown, tossing 11 touchdown passes in the season's final three weeks. Cousins' Wild Card Weekend performance didn't come out of nowhere, though, as he was held to one touchdown pass during 11 of Washington's first 13 games. Whether or not Cousins is treated as a top-rate starter next season will depend on whether fantasy drafters believe that the end of 2015 was the exception or the rule. His ability to score on the ground should certainly add to his case, only Cam Newton and Jameis Winston scored more rushing touchdowns than Cousins' five in 2015.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Tosses three first-half touchdowns

    Cousins completed 12 of 15 passes for 176 yards and three touchdowns Sunday in Dallas before handing the reins to backup Colt McCoy. Cousins and the Redskins didn't have much to play for after securing a playoff spot last week, but they managed to build momentum heading into the postseason by thumping the Cowboys in Dallas. He was carving up the opposing secondary before leaving in the second quarter with the game already out of reach. The fourth-year quarterback really came alive late in the season, with 11 of his 29 touchdown passes coming in the final three weeks.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Will start in Week 17

    Head coach Jay Gruden stated Thursday that Cousins will start Sunday's game at Dallas, though his workload is to be determined. Cousins is a candidate to receive rest in the season finale with the No. 4 seed in the NFC already secure, but it appears that Gruden will keep his quarterback fresh with a nominal number of reps Sunday. Assuming Cousins departs early, Colt McCoy awaits to direct Washington's offense, and Robert Griffin may even be active, if Gruden opts to give other offensive stalwarts -- see, DeSean Jackson (knee) -- the day off.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: May be rested for Week 17

    Cousins could be rested in Week 17 against the Cowboys, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. With the Redskins locked in as the No. 4 seed, head coach Jay Gruden acknowledged that it might make sense to rest some players. He said that Cousins' status could depend on the health of Washington's offensive line, which is a bit nicked up despite having all five starters available for Saturday's win over the Eagles. Even if Gruden decides to play his starters, it would be pretty surprising to see Cousins actually finish the game.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Continues hot December

    Cousins completed 31 of 46 passes for 365 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's win over the Eagles. Cousins has been on fire in December completing 71% of his passes for 1,203 yards and a 10:1 touchdown to interception ratio.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Throws for four scores, rushes for one

    Cousins completed 22 of 28 passes for 319 yards and four touchdowns and added 11 yards and a touchdown on the ground in Sunday's win over Buffalo. Cousins doesn't throw multiple touchdowns in a game often, but when he does, he likes to throw at least three. Cousins has passed for one touchdown in 11 games this season, three touchdowns once and four touchdowns twice. Washington plays two middle-of-the-road pass defenses to end the season in Philadelphia and Dallas. History says that Cousins is unlikely to put together huge passing games, but Washington's quarterback has a second skill that could make him an intriguing start. Cousins has rushed for five touchdowns this season, including two in the past two weeks. Only Cam Newton has more among quarterbacks.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Productive in road win over Bears

    Cousins completed 24 of 31 passes for 300 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's win over the Bears. He also ran four times for 13 yards and a touchdown. The fourth-year pro led the Redskins to their first road win of the season, and although he threw just one TD for the fourth consecutive game, his fourth rushing score of the season provided a nice boost for fantasy owners. Cousins' week-to-week potential still fluctuates based on Washington's game script, but he will face a Bills defense in Week 15 that has proven susceptible to the pass.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: One touchdown in loss

    Cousins completed 22-of-31 passes for 219 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's loss to the Cowboys. Cousins and the Redskins' offense struggled to move the ball for much of Monday's game, but once again, Cousins posted an impressive completion rate of 71 percent. While his 7.07 yards per attempt was still rather underwhelming, Cousins didn't turn the ball over, and perfectly arced a 28-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson with under a minute remaining in Monday's game. Looking ahead, Cousins travels to play the Bears this upcoming Sunday.

    Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Throws for 302 yards against the Giants

    Cousins completed 20 of 29 passes for 302 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Giants. He ran the ball four times for a yard and a touchdown and fumbled during the game. Cousins had multiple interceptions in four of Washington's first six games this season, but has been picked off just twice in the five games since. He has posted his only two multi-touchdown games of the season during that same five-game stretch. Though he has been more careful with the football as of late, Cousins has not emerged as a big enough producer in the passing game to warrant much attention in fantasy circles. His abilities as a runner are noteworthy, though, as his three rushing scores this season are tied for the team lead and trail only Cam Newton and Jameis Winston among quarterbacks this season.
