  • Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Scores with his legs
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cousins completed 26 of 45 passes for 327 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 38-30 loss to the Vikings. He added five yards and two touchdowns on four carries. Cousins was held to one or fewer passing touchdowns for the fifth time in nine games in 2017 but scored his second and third rushing touchdowns of the season, bringing his total to 12 since taking over as Washington's starter in 2015. Cousins is putting together another nice statistical season, but he's been a little uneven while working with a receiving corps featuring some new faces. He connected on 10 of his 14 touchdown passes for the season during a four-game stretch from Weeks 3 through 7, putting together a quarterback rating of 119.7. During the five games on either side of that stretch, he's completed just four touchdown passes with a more pedestrian 83.5 QB rating. Cousins takes on a red-hot Saints squad next week.

  • Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Fails to find end zone
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cousins completed 21 of 31 pass attempts for 247 yards and no touchdowns in Sunday's 17-14 win over Seattle. He also added four yards on three rushes and lost a fumble. It was the first game this season that Cousins didn't throw for a touchdown, and 69 of the yards came on two plays during the game-winning drive. Facing an elite defense on the road with a depleted receiving corps and offensive line, a disappointing game was perhaps to be expected. He was also sacked six times, including once for a safety. The 29-year-old returns home to face another stiff test from Minnesota in Week 10.

  • Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Surrounded by injuries
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cousins likely will be directing an injury-marred Washington offense Sunday in Seattle, Field Yates of reports. The Seattle defense has injury issues of its own, but those don't quite compare to Washington's. The Redskins have three starters on the offensive line listed as doubtful or out, with another listed as questionable. Top tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) has also been ruled out, while Jamison Crowder (hamstring) seems to fall on the wrong side of the questionable tag. Cousins may throw early and often, but he may struggle with his efficiency. He'll need big games from Chris Thompson and Vernon Davis, not to mention some form of production from a struggling group of wideouts.

  • Cousins completed 26 of 39 pass attempts for 263 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-19 loss to the Cowboys. He also threw an interception and lost a fumble. Rain was a huge factor in this game, as the two teams combined for five fumbles. Despite many short-range attempts, Cousins finally got some production out of his wide receivers in this one. Fourteen of his completions went to Jamison Crowder and Ryan Grant for 161 yards, including two completions of over 25 yards. It will be much tougher to repeat that performance in Week 9, as the Redskins travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks.

  • Cousins completed 30 of 40 passes for 303 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Monday night's 34-24 loss to the Eagles. He also rushed three times for 18 yards. Cousins was responsible for all of Washington's end-zone trips, which all occurred from inside the red zone. With two touchdowns to tight end Jordan Reed and another to tailback Chris Thompson, though, Cousins once again didn't get much production out of his wide receivers. In fact, none of the Redskins wideouts topped 40 yards. To his credit, Cousins has still tossed for 300 yards three times in his past four outings, while totaling 11 touchdowns versus two interceptions over that span as well. That illustrates the signal caller's strong form ahead of Sunday's next divisional matchup, a home date with the Cowboys.
