Brady is ancient but his fantasy dominance knows no bounds. I don't want to draft him as if he's a top 5 guy, but that's probably where he'll be at the end of the yearCousins isn't very flashy, but he's a threat to be inside the top-5 every year. I'm downgrading him slightly due to a new scene, but his weapons are oddly enough the best he's ever had
Chet Gresham

I guess we'll have to wait for Brady's arm to literally fall out of the socket before knocking him down the rankings despite his AARP card. He is a great quarterback, probably the greatest of all time, but at this point, there's no doubt that his consistency at 41 years old has a lot to do with the Patriots' system, which should be good to go for yet another season.Cousins landed in a nice spot for his fantasy future. Even the very average Case Keenum was able to put up fantasy numbers throwing to Thielen, Diggs and Rudolph.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's really only a matter of time before Brady starts the inevitable downturn to his Hall of Fame career, and we may have already started to witness the beginning of the end. After throwing 26 touchdowns and just three interceptions in the first 11 games, Brady threw just six touchdowns with five interceptions over the final five games, and failed to top 15 fantasy points in any of them. He still gets the benefit of the doubt, but I wouldn't go out of my way to draft him. Many are assuming that just because the talent around Cousins got better, that he'll produce more than he did with the Redskins. I'd hit the brakes on that assessment, as his efficiency was among the best in the game while there, and he was among the top-10 in pass attempts every season. Going to the Vikings (who threw the ball just 526 times in 2017) is going to change that, as their defense is top-three in the league, which doesn't allow shootouts. They also just lost their offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, so it'll take some time for everyone to sync up. While Cousins should be a bit more consistent, I don't think he comes with the upside to warrant a top-eight quarterback selection.

Brady keeps plugging away, with no signs of slowing down. Cousins moves on to a far better supporting cast in Minnesota and looks like a tremendous bargain at his current ADP.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Patriots are retooling an offense that lost LT Nate Solder, WR Danny Amendola and RB Dion Lewis in free agency and traded WR Brandin Cooks to the LA Rams. Brady is also turning 41-years old this year. He should still be a QB1, but there are a lot of changes happening in New England. Cousins should fit well into the Minnesota offense that is loaded with playmakers and is the top-ranked defense in the NFL. He is a solid QB1 option
Rich Piazza

 Cousins has been a top 10 fantasy producer the past 3 seasons while in Washington. There is no reason to believe that he can't maintain or build on that in Minnesota.
