2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Vikings came off a snake-bitten 2016 season to have one of the most magical runs in history last year. Despite losing their starting quarterback and running back to season ending injuries early on, the Vikings held it together largely behind the play of an aggressive defense and their journeyman quarterback Case Keenum. While the defense returns largely intact, the Vikings made the splash of the offseason, replacing Keenum with Kirk Cousins.

While Keenum's success was an absolute shock, Cousins has racked up the statistics the past several years. The last three seasons has seen Cousins finish as the No.9, No.5, and No.4 overall fantasy quarterback. He's gone over 4,000 yards three straight years, and has tossed 25+ touchdowns in those seasons as well. Now these prolific numbers haven't exactly translated into wins for his teams, but the former Redskin has become the poster child for the strategy of taking a quarterback late in your draft.

So can Kirk continue to churn out the fantasy numbers as he moves to a more talented, established team? My gut tells me no. For years the Redskins failed miserably to build a reliable defense or running game around Cousins, and he racked up a ton of garbage time statistics trying to win shootouts or salvage respect in blowout losses. The Vikings will likely be favored in most of their games in 2018, and still want to win with defense and their running game. Say what you will about the wins and losses, but Jay Gruden can coach offense, and I think his scheme was very friendly to Cousins. I expect a statistical regression across the board, especially in attempts and touchdowns, but because of the talent he's throwing and handing off to, Kirk should still remain a good bet to finish as a QB1, just one that lands toward the end of the pack rather than in the middle.
