Summary

Colt McCoy started four games for Washington last year, and went a disappointing 1-3. On the surface, his 71% completion rate and 8.3 yards per attempt suggest an above average skill set. Looking deeper, McCoy only threw 4 touchdowns in those four starts, and threw three interceptions over that span. Simply put, McCoy plays a conservative game and his unwillingness or inability to push the envelope makes him a poor fit for Jay Gruden's passing attack. Luckily for McCoy, Robert Griffin's future is hardly assured and Kirk Cousins has his own shortfalls. Don't rule out McCoy getting another opportunity in 2015 -- but don't bet your fantasy fortunes on him. (August 16)

Redskins | Colt McCoy, Kirk Cousins battling (Fri Aug 21, 07:58 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy replaced QB Robert Griffin III (concussion, shoulder) when he was injured in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 20, not QB Kirk Cousins.

Our View: Keep an eye on this situation in deeper leagues. Cousins is expected to be the backup entering the season, but head coach Jay Gruden said it remains an 'open competition' for the backup job.
