4 Quarterback Value Picks at ADP
Kirk Cousins (MIN): Consensus ADP – QB15 | 113th Overall
“The answer is always Kirk Cousins. Per FantasyData, the last time Cousins finished lower than QB15 overall was 2014; Cousins didn’t become a starter until 2015. He may not offer much rushing upside, but you can’t go wrong with the player who is fourth in passing touchdowns (205), 13th in passing yards per game (266.3), and fifth in completion percentage (67.7%) since 2015, per Stathead. Between his career-long consistency and reuniting with his former Washington QB coach Kevin O’Connell, the new Minnesota Vikings head coach, Cousins is primed for another reliable fantasy season with a familiar coach calling the shots.”
Jameis Winston (NO): Consensus ADP – QB23 | 172nd Overall
“Jameis Winston may not be an ideal starter in single-QB formats, but the fact he’s barely going inside the top 24 QBs is a crime. Jameis finished as the QB14 in points per game last season even though he was asked to run a very conservative offense. The Saints offense will reportedly be much more pass-happy this year, and they have the weapons to do it with Michael Thomas, Jarvis Landry and Chris Olave. If Winston can pair the big throws he made in his Tampa days with the sound decision-making of last year, a big fantasy season could be in store.”

Trey Lance (SF): Consensus ADP – QB13 | 99th Overall
“Trey Lance is going to be a top-10 quarterback this year, and to get him at QB13 would be a steal. Lance is this year’s Jalen Hurts. He’s going to do major damage with his legs. Anything he does as a passer will be gravy — and his maturation in that area should be hastened by the formidable pass-catching trio of Deebo Samuel, George Kittle and Brandon Aiyuk. No doubt Lance will sometimes be flummoxed by his first prolonged exposure to NFL defenses, but that’s fine — a mobile quarterback who doesn’t like what he sees is simply going to take off and run. ”
