Player Outlook
The Falcons surprised many when they drafted Penix at No. 8 overall after just signing Kirk Cousins in free agency. This is a long-term decision for Atlanta and Penix is highly unlikely to play any snaps in 2024 unless Cousins goes down with another injury. Should Penix step in for an injured Cousins, he will provide a more NFL-ready skill set than most of the 2024 rookie class and should be rostered in Superflex and 2QB formats.

  • Falcons' Michael Penix: Goes eighth overall to Atlanta

    The Falcons selected Penix in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft, eighth overall. It's a stunning pick for Atlanta to make, both because Penix wasn't expected to go this high and because the Falcons just gave Kirk Cousins a four-year, $180 million contract. Penix will be about 24.5 years old as a rookie, and he'll have no shot to play anytime soon if Cousins is healthy. Penix in any case boasts a uniquely strong arm, and he was memorably good at avoiding sacks as a college quarterback. Before Penix emerged as a star passer for Washington he did his best to carry the Indiana program before that, but unsurprisingly he found it easier to move the ball in a Washington offense with three NFL receivers and two NFL tackles. Despite possessing a 40-yard dash time just under the 4.60 mark, Penix very rarely attempted to run in college and therefore is unlikely to leverage his speed in the form of rushing production at the NFL level. It's possible that Penix's lack of rushing activity was influenced somewhat by his injury history, as he tore his ACL twice (2018 and 2020).
