Summary

Kirk Cousins has been given enough playing time to know that his future is at a backup. Cousins is 2-7 as a career starter, including a 1-4 stint last year in place of an injured Robert Griffin. Cousins main issue is a tendency to force the ball into coverage, resulting in an inflated 4.7% interception rate. The career 59% completion rate belies uneven mechanics, and a particular struggle throwing downfield or handling an aggressive pass rush. Given Griffin's struggles under Jay Gruden, one can't rule out Cousins seeing the field again in 2015 -- but fantasy owners would do well to avoid the temptation of adding him under any circumstance.

Redskins | Jamison Crowder making plays (Sat Aug 1, 10:25 PM) - Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder has stood out in training camp, and he was on the receiving end of a 50-yard pass from QB Kirk Cousins Friday, July 31. 'He has done a great job,' head coach Gruden said. 'He's very smart. He went to Duke and understands the passing game, understands route concepts. He has got good, strong hands, [is] very quick in and out of breaks. But he does have a role as a punt returner, for sure.'

Our View: The rookie from Duke has drawn comparisons to Eddie Royal because of his ability to make defenders miss in the open field. We're not expecting much from Crowder yet for fantasy purposes. The Washington QB situation has to play out before we get too excited about Crowder. Add him and monitor him in dynasty leagues.
