Cousins has now finished each of the past three seasons as the QB18 or better. He's an extremely safe option that gives you a solid floor week in and week out, but he's capped by the overall offense and how it's structured. With the Vikings being so committed to the run, their overall pass attempts will never reach the point where Cousins is able to crack the top-8 at the QB position. He's a solid streaming option yet again this season and a very sturdy QB2 in Superflex leagues, but we shouldn't be viewing him as anything more than that.It took a little while last season for everything to click under the new offensive structure, but Mayfield was the QB11 in all of fantasy football from Weeks 11-17. He's being completely written off currently with his current ADP, but he'll absolutely have his moments of relevancy throughout the 2021 campaign. Keep an eye on Mayfield as a streaming option as we move into the regular season and he's a perfectly competent QB2 for your Superflex rosters.

Justin Jefferson's emergence along with teammates Adam Thielan and Dalvin Cook give Cousins and the Vikings offense some hope. Captain Kirk's lack of mobility limits his upside. He's never been elite- either as a NFL QB or a fantasy QB. He throws too many untimely interceptions. Cousins is good for around 4,000 yards and 32 TDs. He's a backup QB or spot starter. Capt. Kirk, "Mr. Checkov, Red Zone Alert. Shields up. Mr. Sulu, lock phasers on target, WR Justin Jefferson, and await my command." Sulu, " Phasers locked Captain." Capt. Kirk, "Fire!!A run heavy offense helped take the pressure off Mayfield and he did decent. Star WR Odell Beckham is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in late October. I wouldn't count on OBJ for much this year. Even though the Browns have a good line it's hard to envision any upside for Mayfield. They run it too much and it might take Beckham another year until he feels like his old self. Avoid.

Another pocket passer who profiles better as a "safe" QB2 in Superflex leagues, Cousins lacks the elite upside we seek in our fantasy quarterbacks. Still, he has enough high-end offensive talent around him to offer some top-12 upside in plus matchups.He might not become the superstar we once though he could be, but Mayfield was downright good last year. Accounting for strength of schedule, he had the 10th best QBR in 2020. Additionally, Mayfield got better as the season moved along, finishing with a 15:2 TD:INT ratio over his final eight games. Cleveland began passing more down the stretch as well, which would mean more fantasy-viable weeks for Mayfield should the trend extend in to '21.

Yes, I'm fully aware that Cousins has continually finished as a top-12 quarterback, but my rankings are based on how I'd draft quarterbacks and not where I project them to finish. Why? Well, Cousins has stayed healthy and played all 16 games, allowing him to finish higher than those right around him who missed a game or two. But on a week-to-week basis, you're never going to say Cousins is a top-12 quarterback. He's a rock-solid QB2 in Superflex formats, but he's just a streamer in 1QB leagues. I'd rather draft someone like Trevor Lawrence for upside.We watched Mayfield take major strides in Kevin Stefanski's offense as the year went on in 2020, but it's important to remember that he didn't throw the ball more than 33 times in 12-of-16 games. They want to play good defense and run the ball as much as possible, which makes Mayfield much more efficient. While he's a great target in 2QB leagues, there's rarely a week-to-week ceiling to his projection.

Kirk Cousins is a better fantasy quarterback than you realize. He's just a slow starter. I will now elaborate. In September of 2019, Cousins threw for just 3 TDs and 2 INT with 183 passing YPG. For the next two months, Cousins threw for 18 TDs and 1 INT with 288 passing YPG. Through Cousins' first six games of 2020, 11 TD/10 INT/245 passing YPG. Over the next ten games, 24 TD/3 INT/279 passing YPG. One year is an anomaly. Two years is a trend. Cousins may never be a perfect QB in fantasy or reality, but when he's on a good run, he's a QB1. He finished as such in 6 of his eight last games to close out the season. Those runs make him very appealing in DFS at specific points, as he will be undervalued. As your second QB in Superflex, he is a strong option. As a QB1 in deeper leagues, you'd like a tad more consistency, but Cousins has an excellent complement of weapons and is still just 32 years old. Expect 4k yards and 30 TDs in 2021, just be prepared for a slow start.Baker Mayfield has had some challenges in his first three seasons; different HC and play-callers every year, injuries around him, and lofty expectations. In the second half of last season, Nick Chubb got healthy, the offense got simplified, and Mayfield became very proficient in running lots of play-action, forcing him to be more direct with the football. This was the secret to the Browns' success last year. A less reckless Baker Mayfield was a better quarterback in 2020. The throws you get away with in college are interceptions in the NFL. Ironically, this "Better Baker" evolved with Odell Beckham Jr. on the shelf. He will continue to have some decent moments, but in reality, he's a QB2 in Superflex who will have plenty of all or nothing weeks. If he can pick up where he left off (14 TD/2 INT over his last eight games to close out 2020), he could sneak into the back end of QB1. But even over that good second half, Mayfield put up 31 fantasy points against the Ravens and just 8 points against the 2-win Jets. Mayfield is an inconsistent asset until proven otherwise over an entire season. It is also fair to remember two of his home games last year were in weather conditions that made throwing the football nearly impossible.

The perennially underrated Cousins is being underrated again. He has finished in the top-10 in True Throw Value (a BRoto Fantasy Exclusive Stat that measures a QB's fantasy efficiency through the air) in four of the last five seasons including 2nd overall last season. The problem with Cousins output is lack of opportunities.Everyone seems to forget a very, very simple truth: Baker Mayfield is worse when OBJ plays. I know, it sounds crazy, but the stats don't lie. Without OBJ, despite playing in some insane weather and COVID protocols that held the offense back, Mayfield's QB rating raised 13 points and his TD/INT Ratio went from 10/6 with OBJ to 18/2 without him. The return of OBJ may actually be a bad thing for the fantasy prospects of Mayfield.

Cousins was the 11th ranked fantasy QB in 2021 with 319.20 fantasy points in 16 games and he should continue to put up great numbers, especially with how good Justin Jefferson was in his rookie year.Mayfield was a better NFL quarterback that fantasy quarterback this year and it remains to be seen if he can build on his solid play in the second half of the season. Mayfield is a QB2 with both some upside and risk due to inconsistent play over his first three years.
