Draft note
by John Paulsen
In 2019, Cousins finished No. 16 at his position, outscoring 10 quarterbacks who had more pass attempts than he did. In fact, he had the second-fewest pass attempts of all the quarterbacks who finished in the top 19. Not coincidentally, he scored the sixth-most fantasy points per pass attempt. The Vikings attempted the third-fewest pass attempts last season and figure to be at least a little more pass-happy this year since the defense is expected to take a step back. OC Kevin Stefanski left to coach the Browns and Gary Kubiak will take over the play-calling. In his last two seasons in Denver, Kubiak’s offenses were 13th and 17th in pass attempts. HC Mike Zimmer will try to keep the team run-heavy, but if the defense struggles, Cousins could see his pass attempts spike in 2020.

MIN QB Kirk Cousins - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Detroit

Cousins finished up last strong as he completed 27-of-41 passes for 391 yards and three touchdowns against the New Orleans Saints. Cousins has been a reliable starter in fantasy after his rocky start in the first few weeks of the season, as he has frequently posted three-touchdown games since November. For the first time this season, Cousins has true upside QB1 potential this week as they take on the Detroit Lions who rank last in aFPA to QBs this season. With Dalvin Cook set to miss this game, expect plenty of throws from Cousins in this one.
