After Redskins' QB Kirk Cousins' five turnover game against the Giants, head coach Jay Gruden came to Cousins' defense, "It's not just Kirk. Kirk, his mistakes are magnified obviously, but there are other guys who had mistakes that were equally important and devastating to the football game. We just have to continue to work to get better, and we will, but we're not going to hold Kirk's head under the water right now. We're going to keep him composed and getting better, and he's going to be fine next week." (Source: Washington Post
Fantasy Impact: Cousins is much like former QB Rex Grossman. The talent is there, but you never know which Cousins you're going to get. Cousins, much like Grossman, was fantastic when he was on a hot streak, but when he's cold ... he gives away the ball like it's a hot potato. Gruden cited inexperience as Cousins' biggest con right now, so perhaps he'll improve as the season progresses. View Cousins as a middling QB2 next week against Seattle.
