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.

Kirk Cousins will sign with Vikings

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Vikings and Kirk Cousins have agreed to a three-year, fully-guaranteed contract.

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.
