It’s a new experience for the entire organization. Washington Redskins Coach Jay Gruden has had several days to figure out his approach for Sunday’s regular season finale against the Dallas Cowboys, and he is planning to use his healthy players with a home playoff game on the horizon. It’s unknown at this point, however, how long some of the Redskins’ key starters will play with the team locked into the NFC’s No. 4 seed.
“I have a good feel for it, so we just have to make that determination,” Gruden said. “Number one, it’s the health of our football team with these injured guys who are legitimately injured and can’t play. Then, from there, we’ll have to figure out the able bodies that we have — personnel groupings will be adjusted — and then throughout the course of the game, we’ll make adjustments depending on the situation.”
“It’s important for us to be healthy come playoff time, but it is also to have some kind of momentum also going in,” Gruden said. “I’d like to end on a four-game winning streak, win three games in a row on the road, finish the fourth quarter [of the season] 4-0 [and] finish 9-7. I think it’s a hell of a step in the right direction. The guys that are able to play are planning on playing and competing.”

Week 18 vs Green Bay
Kirk Cousins threw for three TDs in the regular season final game against the Cowboys last week. Since we've focused a lot on this in the second half, his totals since Week 6 are now 23 TDs and just three INTs in that span. That includes 11 TDs over his last three games.
It's tough to find a hotter QB than Cousins right now. What's also impressive is only one of the defenses in the last three weeks (Eagles) were ranked in the bottom half of the league in terms of giving up fantasy points to QBs, so Cousins continues to get it done from a fantasy perspective. In the Wild Card round this week, Cousins gets the Packers at home. The Packers are 10th in allowing fantasy points to QBs so it's not a great matchup. Cousins is ranked fourth on our list and this game has one of the higher over-unders for the weekend, so look for some points to be put up.
