During an interview on Monday, Redskins QB Kirk Cousins on "Grant and Danny" on 106.7 The Fan said, "if I don’t play well next season, I don’t deserve to be back. I don’t deserve a long-term deal." (Source: Pro Football Talk)
Fantasy Impact: There is certainly a chance that a long-term deal between the Redskins and Cousins gets worked out by July 15, but Cousins seems to understand why the Redskins are hesitant (and unlikely) to offer him a lucrative long-term deal this summer. The Redskins did draft WR Josh Doctson in the first round, so Cousins will have another weapon to help him prove his worth to the organization this season.

Washington Redskins GM Scot McCloughan told CSN Mid Atlantic that the organization is "still in discussions" with Kirk Cousins on a long-term deal and that "they're positive." Cousins is currently set to play the 2016 season under the franchise tag. (Source: Around the NFL)
Fantasy Impact: Kirk Cousins is likely the next in line to receive a blockbuster deal in the NFL, especially since his team, the Washington Redskins shelled out an enormous amount of money to lure Josh Norman to the nation's capital just a few days back. Cousins will enter his second-consecutive season as the team's starter and will look to build off of his record setting 2015 campaign this year. Cousins is a borderline QB1 with moderate upside. His success rests upon the health of DeSean Jackson, who missed seven games last season to injury. A healthy trio of Jackson, Pierre Garçon and Jordan Reed could be enough for Cousins to remain a top 10 fantasy quarterback.
