Quick fantasy outlook: Many NFL pundits were incredulous at the Redskins decision to draft Kirk Cousins in the 4th round after drafting Robert Griffin III in the first round, but Head Coach Mike Shanahan expressed the belief that every team needs depth at quarterback. How prescient was Shanahan's decision in retrospect? Griffin suffered an injury that facilitated Cousins playing in Week 14 against the Browns. The rookie 4th rounder shredded the Browns defense (26 of 37 for 329 yards and 2 touchdowns) on route to a key win that might have been the difference between the Redskins winning the division or outright missing the playoffs. With Griffin recovering from torn ligaments, Cousins has taken the majority of reps in the preseason, which will likely cement his position as one of the best young backups in the NFL - and create a commodity that Washington can consider trading away in a year or two for a boatload of draft picks.
