ESPN Fantasy Projection: Cousins has proven to be the ultimate QB2 in recent years, having failed to post a top-10 fantasy campaign since 2017, but having also delivered six top-12 campaigns over the last seven seasons. Cousins does his damage with his arm, having finished no lower than ninth in passing TDs each of the last five seasons. He's also been top 10 in passing yards six of the last seven seasons. The Minnesota offense will look different with new coach Kevin O'Connell calling the shots, but that may actually lead to more passing volume for Cousins. The 34-year-old doesn't offer much with his legs (career high of 179 rush yards), but he's been playing at a high level for years and has Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen and Dalvin Cook in his arsenal. Cousins is a strong QB2.
