2015 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Oct-03-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (10/3): Despite earning the starting job in Washington, Kirk Cousins remains a tenuous Fantasy option. He only has value in 2QB leagues. The NFC East isn't known for their defense so Cousins will occasionally shine. That said, this offense has a long way to go before you should consider adding him to your bench.
I know many Washington fans and possibly the Redskins staff are pining for Cousin to start. Kirk is pocket passer with a quicker release and better decision making pre-snap. When compared to Griffin, Cousin was sacked only eight times in his 204 pass attempts (Griffin was sacked 33 times on his 214 pass attempts). This stat alone will give Washington a better chance of avoiding negative plays. In his five starts, Kirk threw for 2,780 yards (292 yards per game) with three games with two TDs or more. Unfortunately, Cousins has committed too many mistakes (19 INTs in 16 games) while struggling to win games (2-7). His arm has upside and his game is strong enough to steal the starting job from RGIII if he falters. Last year, Kirk averaged 8.4 yards per pass attempts, which is an attractive number, while competing 61.8 percent of his passes. Cousins is a player to keep an eye on with QB2 value when starting.
