With Robert Griffin III being shut down for the remainder of the season, Kirk Cousins has gotten a chance to put on an audition for other teams. With a franchise quarterback like RG3 and a lack of draft picks, there is no reason for the Redskins to hold on to the former Michigan State leader. In his first two games, Cousins has thrown for 578 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions. He has avoided pressure well and made some very impressive throws. With all that being said, he are three potential suitors for Cousins

Cleveland Browns- It is no secret that Rod Chudzinski and Norv Turner like to throw the ball. They shipped Trent Richardson out of town so they can focus entirely on the pass game. However, in order to have an effective passing game you need to have a good quarterback. Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden don’t scream efficiency. While Brian Hoyer played well in his limited time, the sample size is too small to make any realistic judgments about his skill. With potential superstar receivers in Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, along with an already impressive defense, Cousins could be the last piece before Cleveland can seriously envision going back to the playoffs.

Houston Texans- Despite one of the most disappointing years for a team in NFL history, the Texans still have a strong core. Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, and JJ Watt are all top 10 players at their respective positions. The main issue has been under center this year. Matt Schaub has completely imploded and Case Keenum has shown he’s not a starter in this league. To make matters worse, it looks as if both Teddy Bridgewater and Marcus Mariota will be staying for there senior seasons. With a new head coach set to come in, a new quarterback would be very beneficial the new regime. With a mix of veteran leadership and young talent, Cousins could be the perfect guy to shoot the Texans back to their initial projections.

Denver Broncos- Now I know what everyone is thinking. Why does Denver need a quarterback when they have the legendary Peyton Manning having one of the greatest seasons ever? With all that being true, Peyton is going to be 38 next season. He has also been fighting through two bad ankles for a good portion of this year. At the height of those injuries, Manning was playing fine, but noticeably worse than at the beginning of the year. If Denver wins the Super Bowl this year, it may not be crazy for Peyton to consider going out on top. Bringing in Cousins creates an insurance plan for when Manning finally hangs it up. The drop wont be as bad and Denver can remain a top team in the AFC with this pick up.

What do you guys think? Should the Redskins trade Cousins? If so, where? Leave a comment below with your reactions/suggestions

10 Case Keenum- He is going against JAX and needs to make up for the last loss he had against them. Expect Tate to be the star of that game but Keenum should still put up numbers.

9 Matt Ryan- He has talent but the team has been falling apart all year since Julio went down. Poor guy has a great arm and two good receivers, but all they do is run the ball. If you can’t win might as well kill the clock from the start and protect the talented arm.

8 Joe Flacco- Against MIN everyone does well. Hasn’t been on this list much this season, but has the potential to do something good this week.

7 Josh McCown- Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall help when you are a second string QB. Another thing that helps is going against DAL secondary on Monday night AT HOME. Looks like we are in for another great matchup Monday night.

6 Cam Newton- Cam is showing us why we should call him SUPERMAN even though he wears Batman fleets. The man flies and can sling the ball as well.

5 Tom Brady- He is heating up finally and becoming that QB we all wanted to watch in the beginning of the season. Look for him to have fun against a strong CLE defense.

4 Drew Brees- Time to forget last week and think of the future. BIG DIVISIONAL GAME! Saints are back at home and are going to show them why home field advantage is so important after being shown that back in SEA

3 Nick Foles- Gonna be a shootout down in Philly this week! Two of our top 3 QBs are in this matchup and the other is clear cut #1! I like him for another week without an interception.

2 Matthew Stafford- Going against a weak PHI DEF and second in the league in passing yards. He has Megatron and he has Bush he is one blessed man this week.

1 Peyton Manning- Is this really still surprising people that he is putting up these numbers? He has the most passing TDs by a long shot and passing yards by a full 300 which is more than the average passing yards per game in this league

Gary & Avi go over the game from Sunday night. From the conditions, to Peytons Arm, to the finals calls.

#10 Desean Jackson – Going against a strong DEF is why he is just #10, but he has a good QB and is a great WR.

#9 Josh Gordon – JAX defense isn’t that bad but Josh Gordon is getting thrown to all the time giving him the opportunities he needs to capitalize.

#8 Jordy Nelson – He is going against DET but also has Matt Flynn and not Rodgers. He is a talented WR and looks like he can flourish this week against a second rate DEF.

#7 Antonio Brown – He is a personal favorite of Big Ben and seems like he isn’t turning the jets off anytime soon. Look for a score and a bunch of targets from this guy.

#6 Alshon Jeffery – Going against MIN, if they cover Marshall someone is going to open and it’s gong to be this guy.

#5 Demariyus Thomas – At the end of the day he is a Peyton Manning favorite right now and that means MONEY.

#4 AJ Green – Going against SD isn’t a shoe-in but when you have hands like Green you can do a lot against a second rate DEF.

#3 Dez Bryant – They have been connecting well lately together QB-WR here. Dez is playing a weak secondary and has a great QB throwing to him. Expect a show with this boy.

#2 Brandon Marshall – MIN again is the weakest DEF in the league and Marshall is one of the top WR in the game! Seems like he drops another good day this week.

#1 Calvin Johnson – Is this really a surprise? He is a beast and that’s really it. Nobody stands a chance against him to cover him unless you double team him or shadow him with a zone and that just leaves open the other WR and Bush.

#10 Matt Flynn -Thanksgiving just hasn’t been the same without a good GB QB in the past few years, but Flynn could surprise us. Lets see why he gets paid to take vacations.

#9 Andy Dalton – Going against SD that just gave up 38 seems like he is in line for a solid day.

#8 Josh McCown – Has the receivers and is going against the most giving DEF in the league. Get ready for the underdog to throw.

#7 Tom Brady – HOU has a good defense, but their offense won’t be on the field that long leaving Brady time to show off his skills.

#6 Tony Romo – Not time to break down yet! The train isn’t at the station yet! going against OAK look for Romo to throw for a pair at least and get some yardage.

#5 Nick Foles – He has the run game and the WRs. He is in a tight race and tends to put on a show when he can. Expect a nice day from the youngster.

#4 Cam Newton – Finally the guy we want! Cam is back to making electrifying plays as he did in college. He is running and making his options wider than every other QB out there.

#3 Drew Brees – Going against SEA isn’t easy and doing it at their house is even harder! Drew Brees though is off to prove that they are the team to beat in the NFC over SEA.

#2 Peyton Manning – He is Peyton Manning in the end of the day. Yes he was stopped for 15 points last time and yes he doesn’t have Moreno probably, but he is Peyton and the Chiefs just gave up 41 to the chargers.

#1 Matthew Stafford – HAPPY THANKSGIVING with such a giving GB defense. Time for our WRs to show off and bring on the thanksgiving joy as Stafford has a field day.

#10 Mike Glennon – He got the first W of the season, now let’s hope he can pass the ball against a weak ATL DEF. He can do it, watch him have a surprisingly nice game this week.

#9 Case Keenum – I have him in my top 10 AND over a few big names. He is playing OAK. Foles destroyed their DEF. It’s not that good and Keenum is looking for a W. The stars are lined up for the rookie.

#8 Phillip Rivers – He has the receivers, the question is does he have the O-line. If he has a healthy one he will have a good chance going against a drama filled MIA team.

#7 Matthew Stafford – Playing for a playoff spot and have all the cards in their hands. Bush is the ultimate play action and even going against PIT Stafford does have this guy known as Calvin Johnson.

#6 Cam Newton – Going to be a nice matchup this week and probably game of the week. Watch this game will be pass heavy with some play action on both sides. Two great pass DEF will be ROCKED this week.

#5 Nick Foles – He has talent, NOT AMAZING, but he has talent and going against WAS surely helps the cause.

#4 Tom Brady – Yes I know CAR has the best pass DEF in fantasy sports but coming off a bye week, getting back to be the “Brady of old”, and getting a running game back you can be assured that the box score will be flashy.

#3 Russell Wilson – When you play MIN you are more than likely to break the top 5. He is mobile and I expect a big day from him to be out #3.

#2 Drew Brees – Coming off an amazing week against a DAL secondary who needed help everywhere and going against a somewhat more friendly than expected SF defense. You can expect a couple of scores and decent yardage.

#1 Peyton Manning – I must be having a case of déjà vu look who we have here. So with all the weapons he has, even without the #1 defense in the league not allowing more than 17 points a game he is still up here. Just goes to show talent is here for the HOF even when injured and going against the best in the league.

#10 Eli Manning coming off a bye week and every game being a must win the pressure is on. Hopefully the bye helped him have some quality time with Peyton to get him on track to making something out of this horrific season.#9 Andrew Luck Coming off a game against DEN and HOU seems like he is streaking even without Wayne

#8 Nick Foles. FLUKE FLUKE FLUKE FLUKE FLUKE. Now that that is out of the way he has talent but not that much talent. So much blown coverage and OAK defenders falling on their faces. More Luck than talent.

#7 Matthew Stafford in a division game he probably will be the same after coming off his game winning drive against DAL and bye week. Seems promising even against CHI

#6 Jake Locker Had a solid week last week and playing JAX. Friendly matchup seems promising

#5 Russell Wilson Against ATL and off a bad week with an OT win against an 0-X team well time to prove the world otherwise and make them stop asking questions

#4 Phillip Rivers Denver loves having shootouts and this will be nothing less than that. Think about it, DEN has a lot going on maybe this could be a win.

#3 RGIII Yes I have him high up after an OT win with SD. When you play against MIN you are almost guaranteed a spot here.

#2 Drew Brees Dallas always gets yards but gives them away just as much expect Brees to have 300+ and two TDs

#1 Peyton Manning surprised? Wouldn’t think so. Playing for a purpose now with Fox in the hospital. He is just on a different level. Don’t know who will dethrone him anytime soon
