Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
We're just a season removed from Minshew's quality innaugural campaign and it seems as though the Minshew Mania has subsided. The sixth-round rookie went for 3,271 passing yards, 21 TDs and just 6 INTs in his first season and will look to build on those numbers as the unquestioned starter of a Jacksonville team that should be playing from behind most Sundays. He's dangerously undervalued as the consensus QB21. 
Kevin Roberts

Volume. The Jags are shooting for 0-16, it seems, and they should pass a ton in 2020. So, there's that.Cousins was already a pedestrian fantasy passer last year, and now he lost Diggs. I can't demand he be any better in 2020.
Draft Engine

Jacksonville's trade of Nick Foles to Chicago opened the door for Minshew and his impressive mustache to begin 2020 as the Jaguars' starter. He seemed to make strides as a rookie, throwing eight TD passes with only two turnovers over five December games.With the firing of Vikings offensive coordinator John DeFilippo in December 2018, head coach Mike Zimmer made it clear he wanted to run the ball more. The result was Cousins attempting fewer than 30 passes per game in '19, which will likely be the case in 2020.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
With Fournette gone, this could mean even more pass and rush attempts for Minshew. He's in my top-20, and I'd be fine with him as my starting fantasy QB Week 1 against the Colts. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
I'll admit it, I was wrong. I was sure the Jags would bring in some serious competition for GMII but instead they brought in some really sensible supporting pieces, a raw rookie and Mike Glennon. This isn't Minshew's position to lose, it's Minshew's role for 2020 and maybe beyond. While I don't think it's impossible Doug Marrone brings in Cam Newton, i reckon it's more likely the Jags stick with Minshew through 2020 and reassess before the 2021 draft. While they may be in full rebuild, there's likely to be enough passing volume in this attack to make Gardner a low level streaming option this season with upside for more if things really click.I'm not going to join the Kirk Cousins-bashing bandwagon. While he's overpaid, he's not a terrible QB. From a fantasy perspective however, he's highly unlikely to be productive to a high level. In fact in his five seasons as a starter, Cousins has averaged 16.3-18.3 fantasy points, missing just one game. He's so safe but this offense runs through Dalvin Cook while their focus is to let the defense do the hard work. With Stefon Diggs gone in 2020, the Cousins floor is even lower and he remains solely a streaming/superflex option.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was quite miraculous what Minshew accomplished in 2020, especially when you factor in the lack of draft capital (sixth-round pick) they used to acquire him. Don't understand just how good he was? Put his numbers up next to Kyler Murray's. Minshew averaged more yards and passing touchdowns, while having fewer interceptions per game. And keep in mind that Minshew didn't even start two of the games included in that sample. Am I going to say that he should be drafted like Murray? No. However, he is being undervalued by those in 2QB leagues. The average quarterback rushes for a touchdown every 96.2 yards rushing. Had Minshew scored three rushing touchdowns (instead of the zero that he did) on 344 rushing yards, he would've finished as the No. 14 fantasy quarterback... in his rookie season... as a sixth-round pick. The Jaguars defense is as bad as ever, so we'll see plenty of pass attempts out of him. It should also be noted that Jay Gruden (his new coordinator) has produced top-14 quarterbacks in 6-of-9 years, and the years he didn't, there were injuries and/or multiple quarterbacks playing. Minshew has zero competition and can potentially be a Jameis Winston-lite in 2020. He's the perfect target in 2QB leagues and will be streamable quite a bit in 1QB leagues.It's never easy to lose your top receiver during the offseason, which is what happened to Cousins when the Vikings traded away Stefon Diggs. They tried to replace him immediately, snagging Justin Jefferson in the first round of the NFL Draft. For a guy who threw just 444 pass attempts and offers no mobility, it's quite an accomplishment to finish as the No. 15 fantasy quarterback, as Cousins did. Now, with Kevin Stefanski out of town, you must wonder if the offense moves towards a more balanced attack under Gary Kubiak, though he may have been the genius behind the offense last year. Still, it's unrealistic to think Cousins throws the ball just 444 times again. Not only is the defense going through a rebuild process, but the Vikings just can't remain that efficient on the ground. Did you know the previous three seasons, Cousins was the (most recent first) QB12, QB6, and QB5? He's trending in the wrong direction, but he's still been a usable streamer in 1QB leagues. I'd be shocked if he's below 500 pass attempts this year, though he is going to become less efficient losing Diggs. Even if we repeated last year's numbers, Cousins ranked 20th in top-18-type performances, which make him a solid quarterback to use in 2QB/Superflex formats. He has no shot to lose the job, likely sees increased volume, and has finished as a top-five quarterback before. Just don't draft him in 1QB leagues as a starter for Week 1, because he's playing the Packers, a team he scored just 8.9 and 6.9 fantasy points against last year.

The return of #MinshewMagic and I.....am.....all.....in!The departure of Stefon Diggs hurts, hard to envision how Jefferson & Thielen carry this team if anything were to happen to Dalvin Cook, or threat of a run game. The defense is depleted and likely to force heavy pass game scripts

The Minshew hype is getting a bit out of control. Last year he was 21st in PPG for QBs and that was even with 344 rushing yards. He simply does not have many weapons outside of Chark.

In 6 points per passing TD leagues, Gardner Minshew scored 18+ points in 9 of his 12 starts. Now, as he enters year 2, he's the unquestioned starter for the Jaguars and the expectations will be high. He has a decent group of WRs to throw to and a solid run game which will help but I still don't see him as someone worth drafting in 1 QB leagues.Cousins had a disappointing 2019 season finishing 18th overall at QB. Now he'll enter 2020 without his favorite deep threat, Stefon Diggs. Cousins will rely heavily upon Adam Thielen but will need more than one weapon to stay fantasy relevant. If rookie WR Justin Jefferson steps up, Cousins could be a steal, but that's a big if for a rookie who won't get any preseason snaps.

Minshew surprisingly ran for 344 yards last year, which will always help boost fantasy value. He'll be a fringe starter every single week and is currently a steal at his QB27 ADP price tag.With Gary Kubiak now at OC, it's going to be interesting to see just how much the Vikings run the ball in 2020. Cousins will be a fringe starter for fantasy football again this season.

Minshew was a top ten fantasy quarterback from weeks 1-9 last season, has upgraded weapons surrounding him, underrated rushing ability (344 yards rushing in 14 games, fifth most in the league) @mrhill9169 Gardner Minshew had the third-best passer rating on play-action throws last year (136.4), but the lowest rate of play-action passes (14%) among 34 qualifying QBs (via PFF). @Pat_Thorman

 Cousins had 3,603 yards passing and 26 passing touchdowns on a run oriented team. He is a middle of the road QB2 on an offense that abandons the pass at times.
