Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports that the reason the Redskins are willing to pay Cousins $19.95 Million for one year on the Franchise Tag, but aren’t willing to give him a long-term contract is because they may see him as replaceable. Florio states the GM Scott McCloughan thinks he can find a QB just as talented as Cousins for a fraction of the price. Cousins has played his entire four year career with the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: I expect Cousins to provide tremendous value this season playing on a one-year contract. Cousins will also be a valuable streaming option early in the season. The Redskins first six games: Steelers, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Eagles, are against teams with weaker defenses or games that could likely turn into shootouts. If you are looking to stream your QB all year, Cousins could provide great value late in your draft.

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

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.

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.

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.

After all the RG3 drama, it was time for Kirk Cousins to put up or shut up in 2015. He didn't have the history of being a great fantasy quarterback, but over the second half of the season he became one of the stronger options available and was even one of the highest scoring players of many fantasy...
