While Ryan has been extremely consistent for fantasy over the past several years, he's been doing this on the back of ridiculous volume and having Julio Jones to throw to in Atlanta. Fast forward to 2021 and Ryan might not have either of those things. Julio is now in Tennessee and the passing volume could come crashing down with Arthur Smith now in town. With a bare cupboard of receiving options after Calvin Ridley and Kyle Pitts, the upside really isn't present for Ryan this season. He'll be a fine streaming QB in plus matchups, but I'd very hesitant to go into this year with Ryan as my locked-in QB1. His ADP has settled around QB15 - so you might not have to - but don't assume that he's going to be as consistent for your lineup as he has in previous seasons.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.

The Falcons defense is awful. They'll be trailing and forced to pass, which means a lot of garbage yards will be there for the taking in the 4th Qtr. Losing Julio Jones hurts. At least Atlanta drafted highly touted rookie TE Kyle Pitts. If the Falcons can protect Ryan he could put up some decent numbers. Ryan's lack of mobility limits his upside though. Seriously, if the city of Atlanta built a new statue I think the statue would gain more rushing yards haha!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!!

Entering his age-36 campaign, Ryan lacks high-end fantasy upside as a complete zero when it comes to his rushing contributions. Unlike Brady, however, we can't be certain that Ryan will play aggressive and efficient. New coach Arthur Smith should theoretically be able to get the most out of this offense, but even then Ryan still profiles better as a "safe" QB2 in Superflex formats.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.

Arthur Smith intriguing playcaller, though run-heavy past slight concern. Wonder how much of that was Vrabel directed. Losing Julio hurts, but Kyle Pitts could be a fantastic replacement

We are finally going to see what Ryan looks like without Julio Jones. That doesn't sound appealing, does it? There's actually been 42 games in Ryan's career he's played without Jones. In those games, he's averaged 43.5 fewer yards, 0.13 fewer touchdowns, and 0.07 more interceptions, which may not sound like a lot, but it all adds up to 2.9 fewer fantasy points per game, and it's not as if Ryan was an elite fantasy starter with Jones. On top of that, Ryan has a new head coach, and one whose offenses have ranked 30th and 31st in pass attempts over the last two years. Ryan is going to be a streamer in 2021, so don't draft him as your every-week option.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.

The Falcons are keeping Matt Ryan at least through this year and they have given him Calvin Ridley and Kyle Pitts as weapons. Pitts was a great addition, but losing Julio Jones makes Ryan more of a QB2 this year than a QB1.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.

Put a fork in Matt Ryan, he's done. Last season, he led the entire league in both pass attempts and completions yet only mustered the 15th most fantasy points per game while finishing 24th in True Throw Value (a BRoto Fantasy Exclusive Stat that measures a QB's fantasy efficiency through the air). If you can't count on a QB1 finish, at the very least, from an immobile QB in a year that he leads the league in completions, then what more is there really to consider? On top of that, in the last two years Ryan has average 5 less fantasy points per game without Julio Jones. This might be the last year that Matt Ryan is a full-year starter in the NFL.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.

Ryan had two elite wide receivers in Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, but Julio is now onto Tennessee. The addition of TE sensation Kyle Pitts in the draft could fill that void and running back Mike Davis in free agency gives Ryan a complete and balanced complement of weapons. Ryan is an annual threat to throw for 4.5K yards and close to 30 TDs. The Falcons still didn't make any real gains year over year defensively, so this offense will have plenty of opportunities to put up points. That's good for your fantasy team. Ryan is a "safe" consolation prize at QB if you miss out on the upper tier at the position. New HC Arthur Smith doesn't have Derrick Henry in Atlanta, so the strength of the offense will continue to be the passing game.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.
