Kirk Cousins hits free agency in 2024, so there's a good chance he'll be playing for a team other than the Vikings in 2024. But it's not a lock that Cousins will be playing at all in Week 1. He tore his Achilles on Oct. 29, and as he heads into his age-36 season, we probably shouldn't assume he'll make a hasty recovery. It will be interesting if Cousins signs with a new team and isn't able to take any full-speed reps in a new offense before the start of the season. But Cousins will be coveted in free agency because he's one of the better pure passers in the league. Before going on IR, he was averaging 291.4 passing yards and 2.3 TD passes a game. For fantasy managers, drafting Cousins to be your starting quarterback would be risky, but once he's fully healthy, this proven veteran should be able to provide solid QB2 value.

Kirk Cousins signs four-year deal with Falcons

Veteran QB Kirk Cousins is signing a four-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons, per his agent.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins was arguably the biggest domino that needed to fall in this free agency period, and with the Falcons getting a deal done, they are secure at the position for now. The Vikings will suddenly become players in the QB market with plenty of options to chase after in free agency or the draft. Cousins has averaged 4,602 yards and 33 touchdowns to 11 interceptions per 17 games over his last three seasons, pairing him with WR Drake London, TE Kyle Pitts and RB Bijan Robinson.
