Fantasy Impact:

We've heard the rumblings for quite a while and it appears that the Vikings are the only team that Cousins visited. It's said to be in the range of $28 million per year, which would give him around $84 million in guaranteed money, the third-highest number the NFL has ever seen, surpassing Jimmy Garoppolo's $74 million contract. Cousins will not take a hit from a fantasy perspective, either, as he'll have Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, and Kyle Rudolph at his disposal, along with a better offensive line. The defense won't allow as many points, meaning he may see a reduction in pass attempts, but he's still in the mid-to-low-end QB1 range.
