2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
After years of making a fantasy living off of high passing volume, Cousins' numbers plummeted across the board last year as the Vikings committed to running the ball more and Adam Thielen missed six games with a hamstring injury. His attempts, yardage and touchdown totals were the fewest since he became a full-time starter in 2015.

A clear QB2 for most of the year last year, the bottom really fell out for Cousins from Week 14 on. He barely scraped together double digit points, and in a loss to the 49ers in the Divisional Round he could barely complete a pass past the line of scrimmage, rolling up a sad 6-yards-per-attempt. So while the lower passing numbers got the Vikings to the second round of the playoffs, they still fell short of a conference final, and Kirk's fantasy value went into the toilet. Can we expect a repeat or rebound in 2020?

This funky offseason should be manageable for the Viking offense. NFL lifer Gary Kubiak enters his 25th season in the League, and was the Minnesota Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Advisor last season so you know he had a big hand in crafting the offense. Now built around the legs of Dalvin Cook (more on him later), Cousins and the Vikings do have a gaping hole at receiver with Pro Bowler Stefon Diggs shipped off to Buffalo and replaced by rookie Justin Jefferson. How quickly Cousins and Jefferson can develop chemistry with little work prior to training camp will be big. Diggs was a deep home run threat, while Jefferson is more of a surgical slot receiver, so Cousins is sure to miss the nearly 18 yards per reception Diggs gave him last year. Another factor throwing a wrench into any analysis for Cousins in the status of Dalvin Cook. Currently threatening a hold-out unless he gets a new deal, the entire offense gets a downgrade if he misses games.

There are simply too many moving parts for me to trust Cousins as a QB1 this year. With Diggs and former coordinator Kevin Stefanski both gone, and a rookie being counted on for a big role, it's hard for me to envision Cousins greatly surpassing his 2019 numbers. Short of Cook holding out for the season, or injuries ravaging the backs, I think 450 passing attempts is right where Head Coach Mike Zimmer wants to be.
