Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/25/18 2:27pm ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins went 4-19 as the Redskins' starting quarterback against teams that finished their seasons with a winning record.
Huddle Up: Cousins will receive interest from multiple teams and should receive a lucrative contract if he hits the free-agent market. He has played well over the last few seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending in his new team.

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could receive an offer from the New York Jets that would give him $60 million guaranteed in the first year of the contract, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: Cousins will be at worst a midrange QB1 option next season, but the Jets don't offer a lot of upside if he lands there.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/20/18 6:59am ET
Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could receive an offer from the New York Jets with a fully guaranteed contract, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Cousins will be at least a midrange QB1 in fantasy next season, but signing with the Jets wouldn't provide the most upside.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/19/18 7:19am ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent Kirk Cousins is favored to sign with the Denver Broncos, in the opinion of SI.com's Peter King.
Huddle Up: 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.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/19/18 7:34am ET
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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Alex Smith - QBPosted 2/19/18 1:30pm ET
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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Terrelle Pryor - WRPosted 2/18/18 9:28am ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor likely will receive interest from the Cleveland Browns this offseason, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.
Huddle Up: Pryor had a disappointing 2017 season when he finished with 240 yards and one touchdown. He should receive interest from several teams in free agency but likely would be a starter if he returns to the Browns. He can be a late-round pick in most drafts next season.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/18/18 11:23am ET
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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/10/18 8:19pm ET
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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Chris Thompson - RBPosted 2/8/18 10:43pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) is confident he'll be able to return to his former self once he's fully healed from his broken leg. 'So it's just more of me being patient with it, with the rehab, and just kind of being smart,' he said in a radio interview. 'I'm known to want to progress as fast as I can, so I think if I just stay patient with the process and everything I should be back to what I was before.'
Huddle Up: Thompson's owners would love to see him build on what was shaping up to be a real solid 2017 campaign for the fourth-year running back. He was well on pace towards shattering career highs in all major categories before going down for the year with his injury, but his future looks bright nonetheless. Even with Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine still under contract, Thompson could end up ascending to lead Washington's backfield.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/4/18 6:41am ET
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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/4/18 6:11pm ET
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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/4/18 6:40pm ET
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.
Huddle Up: 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.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/2/18 11:38am ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he was surprised when he heard about the Redskins' agreement to acquire Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.
Huddle Up: Smith will be the Redskins starting quarterback for the next several seasons and probably should be considered a high-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues. Cousins should receive a lucrative contract from a team this offseason and can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on the team.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/2/18 11:20am ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he is looking forward to hitting the free-agent market because he has not been able to choose the team he plays for since college. He said he will be looking to sign with a team that can win a championship.
Huddle Up: Cousins should have several interested teams during free agency and likely will receive a lucrative contract. He has posted good numbers over the last several seasons and can be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season depending on his new team.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/2/18 8:50pm ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he would 'love' if the Denver Broncos showed interest in signing him this offseason.
Huddle Up: Denver has some solid weapons in the passing game, and Cousins should have no problem delivering QB1 value if ends up a Bronco.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 2/1/18 6:19am ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is unlikely to be pursued by the Buffalo Bills, in the opinion of beat writer Mark Gaughan.
Huddle Up: Cousins will have many suitors if he hits the open market as expected. In the best-case scenario, he's an upper-tier QB1, and he could slot no further than the tail end of the midrange QB1 territory.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 1/31/18 8:36pm ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins has drawn the attention of 'quarterback-needy teams,' with the New York Jets 'expected' to be one of his suitors, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: This is a no-brainer, as the Jets have been seeking a franchise quarterback for what seems like an eternity, and clearly, their young options in place at the moment have no chance of leading a winning football team. If Cousins were to come to NY, he'd have some quality weapons in Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse, which would certainly allow him to continue having a QB1 ceiling.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 1/30/18 12:03pm ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins won't be solely focused on how much money he can make this offseason. He wants to be on a team that will contend for the Super Bowl. 'Is money a part of it? Sure. Is it the only thing? No,' Cousins said. 'It is about winning, and that's what I want more than anything, so I'm going to be willing to make sacrifices or do what has to be done to make sure I'm in the best possible position to win, and that's what the focus is going to be.'
Huddle Up: Cousins will be the most coveted quarterback on the free-agent market and is headed for a big payday. He performed well in 2017 even without a reliable supporting cast. Cousins has been a solid QB1 the last three seasons and should remain a QB1 candidate no matter where he plays.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 1/20/18 8:44pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins isn't a 'special' player, according to former general manager Scot McCloughan. 'You just need to have some talent around him because you don't want him to be throwing the ball 35 to 40 times to win the game,' McCloughan said.
Huddle Up: Despite the critique, every team in need of a quarterback will likely be interested in Cousins this offseason. He will likely be a low-end QB1 candidate wherever he ends up.
Chris Thompson - RBPosted 1/15/18 10:32pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) said he's 'feeling good' while rehabbing from a fractured fibula that he sustained back in November in a game against the New Orleans Saints. He remains on pace to return by training camp.
Huddle Up: Thompson was arguably the Redskins' best offensive player this year before going down due to injury, logging career bests in touchdowns (six) and total yards from scrimmage (804). Even if he has to share the workload again in Washington's backfield next season, he's still going to make for a solid sleeper pick in drafts leading up to the 2018 campaign.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 1/8/18 10:35am ET
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he prefers that impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins signs a long-term deal or the team moves onto another quarterback. 'I think something has to be done,' Gruden said. 'I personally don't want to go through another one-year deal, and just [keep going] one year, one year. I think you want to have a quarterback in here that's going to be here. And hopefully that is Kirk, and if not, we have to move on and do what we have to do as an organization.'
Huddle Up: Cousins has received the franchise tag for each of the last two seasons and could receive it again if the two sides are not able to agree on a new deal. Cousins can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback if he returns to the Redskins next season.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 1/5/18 2:43pm ET
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he would sign the one-year tender offer if he receives the franchise tag again this offseason.
Huddle Up: Cousins has received the franchise tag in each of the last two offseasons, so it will be expensive if the Redskins decide to use it for a third time. He would receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market and should receive a lucrative offer this offseason. Cousins likely will be a starting quarterback next season and could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback depending on his team.
Chris Thompson - RBPosted 1/2/18 9:41am ET
Washington Redskins RB Chris Thompson (leg) expects it will take him four to six months to fully recover from the early December surgery he had on his broken leg. He anticipates being ready for training camp at the very least, according to ESPN's John Keim.
Huddle Up: Thompson was something of a revelation for a Washington offense that struggled to get any kind of consistency from its wide receivers, leading the team in receiving as well as rushing at the time of his injury. His fantasy stock could take a big hit if Kirk Cousins leaves the Redskins as expected, but Thompson should be expected to fill the same big-play/passing-down role he thrived in this season regardless of whom Washington has playing quarterback in 2018.
Samaje Perine - RBPosted 12/31/17 10:18am ET
Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 17 and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Perine took over the starting job this season when Rob Kelley suffered a season-ending injury and could have a chance to compete for the job during training camp. He could be a late-round pick in drafts next season.
Samaje Perine - RBPosted 12/31/17 11:50am ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (ankle) will not return to the team's Week 17 game because of his ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Perine may have a chance to compete for the starting running back job next season and could be a late-round draft pick in drafts.
Samaje Perine - RBPosted 12/29/17 1:16pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin, shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Perine has received at least 12 carries in each of the last six games and should receive a similar workload this week. He has rushed for at least 50 yards in only one of his last four games and may only be a flex option for most owners.
Samaje Perine - RBPosted 12/28/17 12:51pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin, shoulder) was a full practice participant Thursday, Dec. 28.
Huddle Up: Perine has a terrific matchup against the New York Giants in Washington's season finale. He can be started despite disappointing outings over the last month.
Samaje Perine - RBPosted 12/27/17 1:13pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (groin, shoulder) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: It's been a lackluster few weeks for Perine. He has averaged a paltry 2.88 yards per carry on 60 carries over his last four games. He does have a great opportunity to rebound against one of the worst defenses in the NFL in the New York Giants, so give him one last chance to make up for himself.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 12/25/17 1:21pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins became the first quarterback in Redskins' history with three seasons of at least 25 touchdown passes.
Huddle Up: Cousins will be one of the biggest names in free agency next offseason after receiving Washington's franchise tag for two straight years. It's difficult to gauge his fantasy value not knowing where he'll be playing, but it's unlikely that he'll lose much fantasy value and should remain in the QB1 conversation.
