Fantasy Football Player Notes

2024 Draft Rankings

Kirk Cousins Note

Before Kirk Cousins' season ended with the Achilles rupture, he was arguably having one of the best seasons of his career. Cousins was the QB8 in fantasy points per game and was superb in a number of accuracy metrics. Cousins was 13th in highly accurate throw rate, seventh in CPOE, and fourth in adjusted completion rate (per Fantasy Points Data). If he can return from the Achilles and look anything close to the same player, Cousins could again flirt with QB1 numbers in Atlanta with Drake London and Kyle Pitts flying high in 2024.

Michael Penix Jr. Note

The Falcons drew heavy criticism by selecting Penix with the No. 8 pick in the draft after signing Kirk Cousins to a lucrative four-year contract in the offseason. Penix has no clear path to playing time in 2024, although it should be noted that Cousins is coming off a torn Achilles and is entering his age-36 season. Penix has a strong, accurate arm and is good at sack avoidance, having taken just 16 sacks over his last two college season. Penix has a worrisome injury history, however. He's torn his ACL twice and has also endured shoulder issues. Penix won't be draftable in most redraft leagues, though he'd become a popular waiver-wire addition if Cousins were to go down.
