QB Kirk Cousins - Washington Redskins
|6-3, 214||Born: 8-19-1988||College: Michigan State||Drafted: Round 4|
Week 16: vs Philadelphia Eagles
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Kirk Cousins started for Washington back in Week Three - this week it looks like Robert Griffin III is going to go, so looking back in time won't inform us much regarding Griffin's prospects in this game. Griffin has been in and out of the lineup this year - when in, he's posted 104/150 for 1,138 yards, three TDs and three interceptions thrown, with 27/146/0 rushing to his credit over seven appearances. Last week in New York Andre Roberts (four targets for 2/81/0 receiving), Silas Redd (three for 3/62/0) and Pierre Garcon (seven for 4/36/0) led the team in receiving - running back Chris Thompson (four for 3/22/1) handled the lone TD of the day from Griffin. Not exactly a set of household words in fantasy circles, are they? We'll see who Griffin relies on here in Week 16 with a week of preparation with the first team. The Eagles' pass D is awfully putrid, ranking 28th in the NFL averaging 257.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 29 passing scores given out vs. 10 interceptions (23rd in the NFL) and despite an impressive 47 sacks recorded (second in the NFL). The secondary simply doesn't play well for the Eagles, and that's that. Dez Bryant deconstructed them with eight targets for 6/114/3 receiving last week, as Tony Romo threw 22/31 for 249 net yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown while taking three sacks for -16 yards. Advantage, Washington.
