Plant a Flag: QB

Footballguys staff members make a stand on a quarterback

Make a call on a quarterback. Who will surprise - either good or bad? Why?

Phil Alexander: I'm afraid this means I'm going to lose my seat at the cool kids table, but Kirk Cousins has zero chance of becoming an every week fantasy starter. Cousins' 2015 is cast in a glowing light because he led Washington to an unlikely playoff berth (in an awful division), but there are plenty of signs his breakout year was fool's gold. For starters, Cousins played seven games against bottom-10 pass defenses. Five of those games came against the Saints, Eagles, and Giants -- the bottom three teams in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. Cousins also struggled on the road where his fantasy points per game dipped by 27% in eight starts. What's more likely -- Cousins is the quartback with the 24:27 touchdown to interception ratio over his first 17 career games, or the one with the 23:3 ratio over his last 10? Is he the passer with the 57.6% completion rate from 2013-2014 or the one who led the league at 69.8% last year? And are we really expecting Cousins to score another five rushing touchdowns? Cousins will be a fine streamer when he's playing at home against a bad defense, but streamers belong on the waiver wire, which is exactly where you'll be able to find Cousins once his disappointed owner cuts him loose.
