Redskins | A Kirk Cousins tag and trade not realistic

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 13:30:25 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could theoretically be franchise tagged by the Redskins, but if that were to occur then Cousins would not entertain a long-term deal with his new team and he would make a whopping $34 million under the tag. If Cousins did not immediately sign the tag, he could not be traded anyway. Furthermore, the Redskins would not be able to do much else in free agency and also just traded for Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Tagging Cousins makes no sense from Washington's perspective, especially considering the recent acquisition of Smith. Cousins will be playing in a new city in 2018 and the Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Cleveland Browns are the most realistic suitors. Cousins will be a QB1 option wherever he plays, although Minnesota is his best-case scenario on paper.

Jets | NYJ all-in on Kirk Cousins

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 07:34:43 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will have heavy pursuit from the New York Jets, who are prepared to pay "whatever it takes" to land him, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will be an upper-level QB1 wherever he lands, but the Jets might be one of the worst landing places for him in fantasy next season.

Broncos | DEN favored for Kirk Cousins?

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 07:19:31 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent Kirk Cousins is favored to sign with the Denver Broncos, in the opinion of SI.com's Peter King.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has been on the fringe of an elite fantasy quarterback the last couple of years without a lot around him. If he went to Denver to throw to established receivers, he could firmly entrench himself in the top-five at the position.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins to file grievance if tagged

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 11:23:00 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will file a grievance if the Redskins decide to place the franchise tag on him, according to a source. Cousins can argue that the Redskins would be violating the collective bargaining agreement because the team would have no intention in having long-term contract talks with him or having him play on the franchise tag.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins likely will be playing with another team next season, but it is not known if he will hit the free-agent market or if the Redskins will look to trade him. Cousins has played well over the last few seasons and can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on his new team.

Redskins | Kirk Cousins the best available QB?

Sat, 10 Feb 2018 20:19:31 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is the "safest bet at the position, in free agency or the draft," according to an NFL executive.

Fantasy Tip: Several teams are likely to make a run at Cousins this offseason. He has thrown at least 25 touchdowns and topped 4,000 yards in each of the last three seasons and should be able to provide QB1 numbers no matter where he ends up.

Browns | Cleveland won't pursue Kirk Cousins?

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 18:40:43 -0800

The Cleveland Browns are not likely to be serious contenders to sign Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Cabot believes the Browns are more likely to select a quarterback with the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and pursue a lower-tier quarterback in free agency.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Cleveland isn't in the running, Cousins will have no shortage of suitors this offseason. Expect him to be a QB1 candidate regardless of how free agency shakes out.

Vikings | Kirk Cousins wants to be in Minnesota?

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 18:11:24 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins has the Minnesota Vikings "number one with a bullet" on the list of teams he'd like to play for in 2018, according to Paul Allen of KFAN Minneapolis.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has said he wants to go to a team capable of winning right away, and the Vikings fit that mold. With all three of Minnesota's current quarterbacks heading to free agency, the Vikings could be in the market. Wherever Cousins lands, he should be able to provide low-end QB1 production.

Redskins | WAS could place franchise tag on Kirk Cousins

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 06:41:00 -0800

The Washington Redskins are considering placing the franchise tag on QB Kirk Cousins in order to trade him and recover some of the compensation they sent to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for QB Alex Smith, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Without the tag being applied to Cousins, the Redskins would receive no compensation and he would be eligible to sign anywhere as a true unrestricted free agent when the new football year begins March 14. Regardless of where he winds up next season, Cousins should be viewed as a low-end QB1 in all fantasy formats.
