Kirk Cousins to run the ball more in 2020?

Minnesota QB Kirk Cousins said through the team’s website that there are improvements the entire team could make, but one personally for him would be to “take off and run” when the opportunity presents itself.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins has the athletic ability to make plays with his legs, as showcased in his three years as the starter in Washington, where he racked up 14 TDs on the ground. In his two years as the starter in Minnesota, Cousins only has two rushing TDs. The attempts are similar and more easy to predict, but it’s possible the Vikings didn’t give Cousins the free-will to make a play with his legs down in the red zone. This could be a product of the superior run game Minnesota boasts with Dalvin Cook, but either way, Cousins stated that “I’d like to add that (running) to my game and try to work on that the best I can, as hard as it is.” He’s currently ranked #19 in the FantasyPros consensus QB rankings, making him a solid QB2, but if he can add four to five rushing TDs to his stat line, he could potentially hit low-end QB1 production.

Kirk Cousins and Vikings agree on two-year extension

Kirk Cousins and the Vikings have agreed to a two-year extension worth $66 million per Adam Schefter of ESPN. The deal includes $61 million guaranteed and clears $10 million in 2020 cap space.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins signed a three-year $84 million contract in 2018. The extension will keep him a Viking beyond 2020. Cousins threw for 3,603 yards with 26 touchdowns and six interceptions across 15 games in 2019. The 31-year old is currently 16th among all quarterbacks in the expert consensus rankings.

Kirk Cousins overwhelmed by 49ers defense in Saturday's loss

Kirk Cousins completed 21 of 29 pass attempts for 172 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Vikings’ 27-10 loss to the 49ers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins -- along with the rest of the Vikings's offense -- struggled Saturday, as San Francisco's stifling defense was simply overwhelming. Cousins was sacked six times and ended seven drives with three-and-outs, failing to move the ball despite some efficient passing. Cousins had some big games in 2019, but he ultimately finished as fantasy's QB18 and will look to improve his play in 2020.

Kirk Cousins gets monkey off back with clutch OT win

Kirk Cousins completed 19 of 31 pass attempts for 242 yards and a touchdown, losing one yard on two carries in the Vikings’ 26-20 overtime victory over the Saints on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

After a long season of listening to the football community disparage him for failing to come through in the biggest moments, Cousins led Minnesota to an overtime victory with a touchdown drive on the opening possession of the final frame. The highlight came on a 43-yard pass to Adam Thielen that was dropped in beautifully. Three plays later, Cousins hit Kyle Rudolph on a back-shoulder fade for the game-winning score. He’ll move on to the Divisional Round next week with momentum on his side. “You like that?”

Kirk Cousins flops in MNF rout

Kirk Cousins completed 16 of 31 pass attempts for 122 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Vikings’ 23-10 loss to the Packers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins couldn't move the ball all night, finishing with a putrid 3.9 yards per attempt on MNF. Minnesota needed this one to stay alive in the NFC North race, but instead, they took a crushing blow as Cousins faltered under the bright lights of prime time. Minnesota will face Chicago in Week 17, where Cousins will look to end the regular season strong.
