Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

Cousins' move to the Vikings was some of the biggest offseason news and started a domino effect among NFL quarterbacks changing teams. And while Cousins was a top 10 fantasy quarterback and certainly gets an offensive upgrade by moving to Minnesota, we shouldn't overlook how often he was asked to throw the ball in Washington. Jay Gruden's pass heavy offense and the lack of a real bellcow back, often forced Cousins to carry the offense for the Redskins. With Dalvin Cook in the backfield and a much stingier defense, Cousins simply may not have to be as aggressive as a Viking. That said, he also has better weapons around him. In addition to Cook, the duo of Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen are head and shoulders above the receiving crew he was saddled with last season, and it's not like the Vikings gave Cousins $84 million in guaranteed money over the next three seasons just to watch him hand off the football.

2018 Season Outlook

Cousins draft day price tag heading into the summer is probably a bit on the high side. Many are excited about the prospect of Cousins in the Vikings offense, but going to a new team and a new system will likely mean some growing pains. He's relatively safe from a production standpoint, but he's a player to target when he falls, not one to chase. Additionally, if he starts slow in 2018, he makes a good quarterback to target in trades as the numbers should normalize over the course of the season.
