Will Kirk Cousins be a top 5 fantasy quarterback this season?

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Now a days, we all seem to play fantasy football. Some fans shy away from drafting players from their favorite teams, while others relish the opportunity to grab their squads stud(s).

Here are the projected fantasy stats on Redskins Quarterback Kirk Cousins, and his sidekicks, from ESPN for the 2016 season:

Kirk Cousins

ESPN Fantasy Projection: 4,550.8 yards, 29.7 TDs

4500 passing yards is a lofty number, especially for a second year starter, but ESPN brings up some good point to justify the numbers. They cite the Redskins extremely talented receiving corps, including fantasy stud Jordan Reed, and Cousins familiarity with the offense, as reasons why they think he can hit these numbers.

Matt Jones

ESPN Fantasy Projection: 936.7 rushing yards, 5.2 touchdowns

DeSean Jackson

ESPN Fantasy projection: 980.7 yards, 4.5 touchdowns

Pierre Garçon

ESPN Fantasy projection: 579.1 yards, 4.4 touchdowns

Jamison Crowder

ESPN Fantasy projection: 467.7 yards, 3 touchdowns

Josh Doctson

ESPN Fantasy projection: 540.7 yards, 4.1 touchdowns

Jordan Reed

ESPN Fantasy Projection: 932.8 yards, 8.5 touchdowns
