Breaking Football
Cousins has top-5 upside and an elite supporting cast, but the Vikings are going to run the ball more. He's not a priority for me in drafts.Jimmy G is unproven, but Kyle Shanahan's system sure is worth trusting. As long as this kid stays healthy, he'll be a steal.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Perennial low end QB1 who gets a bad rap because he's not a star. I have him as a very solid QB2 and will certainly have streaming potential most games. With the addition of Gary Kubiak, this could be a much more run heavy team than we have become accustomed to seeing. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cousins was fine as a fantasy quarterback in 2018, throwing for 4,298 yards passing and 30 passing touchdowns. His inability to win big games has no impact on his fantasy value and his contract and lack of an experienced backup makes it virtually impossible for the Vikings to move on from him this year. Cousins is a solid QB2 with QB1 upside. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Kirk Cousins has had very similar seasons four years in a row. His average stats are: 4,465 yards, 28 TDs, 11 INT 111 yards rushing, 3.5 TDs rushing In those years he's ended as QB8, 5, 6, and 13.He's a free back-end QB1. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Despite him finishing as the No. 12 quarterback last year in what was a disastrous offensive season, it shows the floor Cousins should provide in fantasy. While the Vikings have said they'd like to run the ball more often, their offensive line isn't built to run the ball 30 times per game. Cousins has Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen at his disposal with a year of chemistry between them. He's not someone you want to start every week, but he offers streaming potential when in games against high-scoring opponentsDid you guys watch Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard produce half-decent fantasy numbers last year? Between them two, they posted 198.5 fantasy points over the 13 games that Garoppolo didn't play. Over the course of a full season, that would have amounted to the No. 16 quarterback. That was with Marquise Goodwin missing in action much of the time, with Pierre Garcon out for the year, and with Dante Pettis not getting on the field in a full-time role until the end of the season. Not only will Pettis be a full-time receiver, but the 49ers also drafted Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd inside the top three rounds. The running backs on the roster are all better pass-catchers than they are ball-carriers, which again favors Garoppolo
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
People seem to be off on Cousins this season and I don't understand why. In his first season with the Vikings he still threw for 30 TD's, even with a compromised run game (Cook's injury). The Vikings offense never hit it's full potential finishing just 18th in PPG. After another offseason with the team, a slightly improved offensive line, and hopefully a healthy Dalvin Cook, Cousins should improve on his 2018 numbers. He finished as the QB 13 last season, yet is being taken as the QB 23. His ADP makes absolutely no sense.Last season Jimmy G was the 11th QB off the board, being taken in the 9th round. This season he's the 24th QB off the board, being taken in the 15th round. So what changed you ask? Well the team upgraded their ground game, and added weapons in the receiving game. Oh and now we've confirmed that Kyle Shanahan is an elite head coach. Jimmy G is a better pick this season than he was last year...and now he's virtually free. This is why we don't draft QB's early. Guys like Garoppolo and Lamar Jackson are being taken at the end of drafts, just becasue there are too many elite options
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
There is reason to be concerned that the Vikings won't pass as much this season since Dalvin Cook is fully healthy and that after they changed coordinators, they passed much less often. There is also substantial upside, however, if Cousins again throws 600+ passes with Diggs, Theilen, Rudolph and the aforementioned Cook catching passes. If his TD-rate leaps to 7%, we'd be talking about 42 TD passes to go with the 4,368 yards he averages over the last few years. There is a reason, after all, that Cousins has been QB8, QB5, QB6 and QB13 in his four years starting.Jimmy G was exceptional in his first five games with the 49ers, not knowing the playbook, but still passing for what would have been 4,900 yards if you pro-rated those games to a full season. Last year, however, he was only mortal (3,829 yards, 27 TDs, 16 INT pace) before his injury. Let's not pretend that recovering from a torn ACL is especially easy either. You can dream on him all you want, but there are a dozen and a half more reliable options.
