Player Outlook

The Kirk Cousins saga is finally over -- at least for the next three years. Cousins finally signed a long-term deal with the Vikings this offseason, and he will remain in Minnesota for the next three seasons after leaving Washington as a free agent. That's good news for Cousins and Fantasy owners since the Vikings have solid skill players in Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph and Dalvin Cook. Cousins should remain a solid No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, and he's worth drafting with a mid-round pick in all leagues. With the Redskins, Cousins averaged 4,392 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions over the past three seasons, with 13 total rushing touchdowns over that span. He might not be an elite Fantasy quarterback, but he's been more than solid in Washington and should be good in Minnesota as well.

Player News
  • Cousins made his Vikings debut during Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos and completed all four of the passes he threw for 42 yards and one touchdown. Cousins only got one drive but he certainly made the most of it, especially given his matchup with the Broncos' stout defense. The highlight of his day was a beautiful 28-yard dime to Stefon Diggs that set up Cousins' first career touchdown as a Viking. The quarterback will look to continue his impressive play during Minnesota's second preseason game next Saturday against the Jaguars.

  • Cousins will remain on the field for as long as the starting offensive line does during Saturday's preseason game in Denver, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic Minnesota reports. Of course, the Vikings are dealing with a number of injuries among their offensive front, namely interior starters Nick Easton (neck/back), Pat Elflein (ankle, PUP) and Mike Remmers (ankle), so coach Mike Zimmer may have a quick trigger finger with his new starting quarterback. No matter, Cousins' appearance Saturday will mark his first since inking a fully-guaranteed three-year, $84 million contract in Minnesota back in March. Of interest will be his developing rapport with weapons such as Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph and Dalvin Cook (knee).

  • Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Officially signs with Vikes
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Vikings officially signed Cousins to a three-year contract Thursday. With a fully guaranteed deal worth $84 million, Cousins has inked the largest one on a per-year basis in NFL history, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. There's a chance he won't hold the crown long due to the likelihood the division-rival Packers sign Aaron Rodgers to a significant extension this offseason. Nevertheless, Cousins' arrival rounds out a stacked roster on both sides of the ball. Upon stepping on the field in the fall, he'll have at his disposal a 1,000-yard wide receiver (Adam Thielen), another explosive option (Stefon Diggs) and a reliable tight end (Kyle Rudolph). Plus, running back Dalvin Cook, a 2017 second-round pick, will be looking to bounce back from a torn ACL. Cousins could soon be working with the best supporting cast of his career.

  • Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Plans to join Vikings
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cousins plans to sign a three-year, fully-guaranteed contract with the Vikings on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Cousins is scheduled for a Wednesday-Thursday visit to Minnesota, where he already has a three-year offer for approximately $84 million on the table. It seems to be a mere formality, but he at least wants to talk with the team and see the Vikings' new facilities before putting pen to paper. A three-year deal would allow him to test free agency again or sign an extension in 2021 when the new Collective Bargaining Agreement will begin. Barring a last-minute change of heart, the 29-year-old quarterback will direct an offense featuring Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Dalvin Cook (knee) and Kyle Rudolph (ankle). It's one of the better supporting casts in the NFL, backed by a defense that led the league in both points and yards allowed last season. The offensive line isn't great, but it's plenty good enough to get by on a team with so much other talent.

  • Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Visiting Minnesota
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cousins will start free agency with a visit to Minnesota, where he already has a three-year, $84 million offer on the table, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Cousins may actually prefer a three-year contract to a longer deal, potentially allowing him to hit the open market (or sign an extension) in 2021 when the new Collective Bargaining Agreement will begin. The Vikings have emerged as a clear favorite to sign him, boasting what's easily the best roster among quarterback-needy teams. The Jets might be willing to pay Cousins more, but he'd have a tough time reaching the playoffs in New York this upcoming season. In addition to an excellent defense, Minnesota offers a potent offensive skill-position core of Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Dalvin Cook (knee) and Kyle Rudolph. The 29-year-old quarterback would be well positioned to win games and pile up stats.
