Outlook: Cousins posted a second consecutive top-10 season in 2016 with 379.9 fantasy points (23.7 per game), yet his long-term future in Washington is still up in the air as the Redskins front office used the franchise tag on him as trade rumors swirled all off-season. The primary knock on Cousins is his poor decision making in playoff games, especially in the red zone, which has cost his team points in critical situations.

Neither issue should keep fantasy owners from drafting Cousins as a top-10 option in 2017, as he has proven to be a top-tier performer in an offense that reloaded after the departure of free agents Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. The signing of Terrelle Pryor from Cleveland will give Cousins a viable deep threat and a big body in the red zone, and the emergence of former first-round pick Josh Doctson should help fill the void left by Garcon.

The Cousins-led offense finished as the No. 8 ranked passing attack in both 2015 and 2016, and another top-10 finish is likely as the Redskins' poor defense (fifth-most points allowed in 2016) will force the offense to put up a large number on the scoreboard to keep pace. The loss of former offensive coordinator Sean McVay to the Rams could be a cause of concern for Cousins owners, but the fact that former quarterbacks coach and Cousins confidant Matt Cavanaugh was promoted to offensive coordinator should ease most worries.

Outlook: With a talented wide receiving corps led by Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard, it is somewhat surprising that Eli Manning finished well out of fantasy relevancy as the No.23 quarterback in fantasy points per game last season. Although he managed to top the 4,000-yard plateau for the third consecutive season, he was nine off his touchdown mark from 2016, resulting in four fewer fantasy points per game. The addition of Brandon Marshall to the passing game will no doubt help Manning in the red zone, as Marshall's size and body control near the goal line will give Manning a second weapon alongside OBJ. First round draft pick Evan Engram should also provide a spark on passes over the middle, with Engram's size and speed creating a mismatch for tight ends looking to cover the quicker Engram, who by some accounts looks more like a slot receiver that a true tight end. A positive regression to his TD average of 33 under Ben McAdoo is not out of the question for Manning, assuming that Marshall provides a red zone spark and Manning can keep his interception number close to 15. But with the sheer number of viable fantasy quarterbacks, Manning will be more of a streaming option for most owners in 2017.

Outlook: Smith is practically the prototype for a player to avoid in fantasy football. Despite missing Jamaal Charles in 2016 which should have presumably led to an increased reliance on the passing game, Smith continued to perform about as poorly as he always has as a passer, throwing for more than one touchdown just four times and never throwing for more than two scores. He threw for 300 yards just once all season - Week 1 against the Chargers. But while we don't really expect Smith to be a prolific passer, he also was not nearly as productive as a runner. While he did sneak through with an impressive five rushing scores, Smith ran for more than 15 yards in a game just twice. Now without Jeremy Maclin on the roster, Smith will be relying on a superstar tight end and a breakout wide receiver as the only pass catchers he shares chemistry with. Worse yet, the Chiefs have made an investment toward the future at the quarterback position, leading to speculation that Smith may not even finish the season as Kansas City's starter. The limited upside and the questions at wide receiver along with his potential competition should leave Smith undrafted in most leagues.
