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. Even though he finished as a top-eight quarterback in each of the last three seasons, he's posted less than 14 fantasy points in 18-of-48 games in those seasons, which is an abnormally high bust-rate.

Kirk Cousins shut down by Jaguars defense in Saturday's preseason action

Kirk Cousins played into the second quarter on Saturday and could only muster 3-of-8 passing for 12 yards during a 14-10 loss to the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins and the Vikings offense had a tough test on Saturday against the Jaguars defense and were unable to step up to the challenge, scoring just three points with the first unit. Better days will come for the Vikings offense who may not face a better defense the rest of the season. Cousins status as fantasy QB1 is intact.
