What do you get when you mix a historic rookie receiver with the 29th ranked defense? You get Kirk Cousins having one of the best statistical seasons of his career and a top-12 finish at an extremely deep fantasy position, that's what!

With little defense to speak of and rookie Justin Jefferson putting up all-time numbers for a 1st year player, Cousins and this offense were forced into a fair share of shootouts. Just look at how bad it got during the 2nd half of the year, where in the final eight games Cousins was forced to throw a ton, securing 20 touchdown passes and throwing for over 2,400 yards. The 7-9 Vikings finished out of the playoffs largely because of a porous defense. Very reminiscent of the early parts of his career when he was mainly a stat compiler, what can we expect from Cousins in 2021?

I still believe that head coach Mike Zimmer wants this to be a tough, run-based offense as evidenced at the start of last year when Cousins failed to reach 30 pass attempts in any of the first four games. The problem? The Vikings went 1-3, and eventually the defense broke down so much, that Cousins only had two more games over the final twelve where his attempts were in the 20's. Say what you will about Zimmer's philosophy, but he's going to get his way with the promotion of 33-year old Klint Kubiak to offensive coordinator. The son of former OC Gary Kubiak, Klint is far more experienced than most 33-year old coaches, but has seen scant duty as a play caller, and it remains to be seen how much power he will have to paint outside the lines of his father's offense. The other variable is the defense. If Zimmer wants a run-based attack, he's going to need gigantic improvement from the defense, but I'm not sure the improvements to the D-line (Dalvin Tomlinson, Sheldon Richardson, and the return of Danielle Hunter) will be enough to fix a leaky secondary that really only added an aging Patrick Peterson. In the end, this offense will likely need and should pass more than Zimmer wants, and because of the elite tools at his disposal, Cousins has a shot to return QB1 value as low-investment.
