What's the reward for finishing the season with 23 touchdowns, 3 interceptions and 4 rushing touchdowns? Being drafted in the 12th round. We don't understand the negative views on this guy, who is still learning the position and has a formidable and deep crew of recievers and tight ends to throw the pigskin to. If you want to beat the system, drafting both Winston and Cousins late could afford you excellent value at every other position without taking much of a hit at the QB spot on your roster.

Kirk Cousins spent his birthday on the sideline Thursday night against the Jets in the Redskins second preseason game. It was a coaches decision to rest the QB.

Fantasy Impact: Cousins may need all the rest he can get heading into the season, as it looks like the Redskins will rely on every ounce of energy his right arm can provide to overcome the shortcomings they appear to have in the run-game. Expectations for Cousins ahould be high based on the weapons he has in the passing attack. He remains a great value for where he is going in drafts.

When it comes to Fantasy Football, don't let what quarterback Kirk Cousins did last season make you think he'll replicate similar results in 2016. Last year, quarterback Kirk Cousins of the Washington Redskins lit up the fantasy football scene. It was much to the surprise of owners everyw...

Cousins showed great improvement last season, but still got the bulk of his stats at home and against poor defense. He'll need Jordan Reed to stay healthy, as he's the best receiver on the team

Early deep ball struggles in camp mildly concerning.

Many watchful eyes will be on Kirk Cousins this season as he and the Washington Redskins could not reach a contract deal before the July…

This guy won a ton of fantasy championships last year as a playoff streamer. This year he will be under center with a healthy DeSean Jackson back in the fold.

Will represent good value for where he is drafted.

Cousins seemed for real last year and his offense is stacked. I can see a mild regression but I think he should be a pretty stable QB1, albeit probably not an elite one

Cousins had a break-out season with 4,166 yards passing, 29 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions. 19 of those touchdowns came in his last eight games. He has a chance to be a QB1, but he is still a little risky with an up and down track record. The addition of WR Josh Doctson to go along with an improved defense should help him maintain his strong value.
