Kyle Yates

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.This 49ers team is still going to operate through their run game, which leaves Garoppolo in the camp of a streaming QB only in potential shootouts.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
A run-first offense that just lost their best receiver? Cousins is likely to finish higher than where I have him ranked because he's been durable and has zero chance of losing the starting job, but I'd rather select someone with more upside in that range. The best-case scenario for Cousins is that he finishes as a high-end QB2, which is a reach considering he threw the ball just 444 times last year.The 49ers aren't likely to become a pass-happy team overnight, even though they added Brandon Aiyuk in the first round of the NFL Draft. They also added stability to the offensive line when they traded for Trent Williams. These are certainly not bad things when searching for a potential breakout, but a non-mobile quarterback with a great defense isn't a recipe for success. He's best suited for QB2 leagues.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
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 offence runs through Dalvin Cook while their focus is to let the defence do the hard work. With Stefon Diggs gone in 2020, the Cousins floor is even lower and he remains solely a streaming/superflex option.Jimmy G has tremendous weekly upside on the rare occasions when the 49ers get in a shootout, most weeks though, this is a run first offence. That isn't changing. Hence he's a weekly streaming option with little seasonal upside unless the defence really collapses.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.
