From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 25): Cousins was fantastic on Sunday against the Raiders, using his backup tight end Vernon Davis, speedy third-down back Chris Thompson, and 2016 first-round pick Josh Doctson to perfection. He's regaining trust in fantasy leagues heading into a tough matchup against the Chiefs.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs LAR (18 / 27 / 179 / 1 / 0 pass, 3 / 7 / 0 rush)

Kirk Cousins played as the ultimate game manager against the Rams today. Whether it was by design or noticing how effective the run game worked, Washington took the ball out of Kirk's hands. The Rams pass rush could have been problematic for Kirk but Washington's run game kept him out of harm's way. Kirk had twenty-seven pass attempts but his main goal today was to be efficient on third downs. Washington was inconsistent with executing on third downs but Kirk made just enough plays to hold on. He didn't have any turnovers against the Rams which helped maintain a lead as well. Kirk could have had a bigger day if he could convert in the red zone, but once again his inaccuracies stalled the drive. An overthrow to Chris Thompson sailed out of bounds and resulted in a field goal attempt. Kirk's lone touchdown came on an eleven yard strike to Ryan Grant that sealed the win. A turnover free game and a run heavy scheme helped Kirk succeed today.

2017 Week 1 vs PHI (23 / 40 / 240 / 1 / 1 pass, 4 / 30 / 0 rush)

Kirk Cousins had a difficult time finding his rhythm today due to constant pressure. He got off to a slow start as he misfired on several occasions trying to connect with his receivers downfield. He had a couple of near interceptions in the first half as well resulting from bad reads. Kirk only accounted for one offensive touchdown on the day as he connected with Chris Thompson in the 2nd quarter. Cousins accounted for three turnovers as he had two fumbles and an interception. One of his fumbles went for a defensive touchdown. He was harassed all afternoon and could not sustain enough drives to get the offense out of its funk. Kirk had forty pass attempts but barely completed over half of them. Without solid protection, he does not feel comfortable making plays downfield. The Eagles often made him skittish in the pocket and indecisive with his reads. The receivers had a few drops that didn't help his case, but Kirk's inability to make plays under duress was on full display against Philly. Kirk had an opportunity to seize control of the game with a seven-play drive in the third quarter. As it looked like they may have established some continuity, he throws an errant pass over the head of Jamison Crowder. The pass was intercepted in the end zone and that was an illustration of how most of the day went for Washington's Kirk Cousins led offense.
