2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


After a slow start to the season over the first six games of the season (six TDs and eight INTs), Kirk had his breakthrough game in Week 7 vs. the Buccaneers. He threw for 317 yards and four combined TDs at home setting up an impressive finish to the season. Over his last nine and a half games of the year (rested in the second half of Week 17), Cousins passed for 2429 yards with 20 TDs and only three Ints. He had seven games with over 300 yards passing and five games with three TDs or more on the year. Kirk even chipped in with five rushing TDs despite only gaining 1.85 yards per rush on 26 carries. He finished with a league-high completion rate (69.8). Over 16 games, Cousins passed for 4166 yards and 29 TDs with 11 Ints. His success was created by a huge season by TE Jordan Reed (87/952/11). His WR score didn't play at an elite level due to the injury to DeSean Jackson. 2016 should be a fun year for Cousins. He has added strength at WR with Josh Doctson added to the mix plus an edge at TE. It's pretty obvious he'll throw the ball to the running back position (79/704/3 on 103 targets). Washington needs to run the ball better, but they will throw the ball close to 35 times a game. I believe in his success and his supporting cast so 4500 yards with 30+ TDs should be well within reach.

13.12 Fantasy Guru - Tom Brolley - I have to say I’m a little skeptical about Cousins heading into the year, but it looks like everyone else in this draft was too. Since I have solid QB1 already in Tom Brady, I can roll the dice and hope Cousins can keep it going for another season.

12.04 Football Diehards - Justin Lonero - Cousins has all the weapons around him and he will sprinkle in a few rushing touchdowns. He should be a top-ten QB, and he is a perfect backup.
