The Redskins lost Robert Griffin III in their second game of the season. While Griffin is expected to return from his ankle injury in 6-8 weeks there is no guarantee that he will return to the starting quarterback role.

Kirk Cousins has filled in well since Griffin went down and the truth is the Redskins offensive gameplan fits a pocket passer like Cousins better than it does a scrambler like Griffin.

Over his two games of work Cousins has completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 677 yards with five touchdowns and an interception Cousins is coming of a impressive outing against the Eagles in which he was 30-of-48 for 427 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.

Cousins may have struggled to finish out the 2013 season but those playing fantasy football will want to ride him while he is hot right now.
