Summary

The Vikings made one of the biggest splashes in NFL free agency, landing Kirk Cousins on a 3-year, $84 million deal. The Vikings look fully committed to Cousins moving forward as they let both Sam Bradford and Case Keenum walk this offseason. Cousins is entering his 7th season in the league and is coming off three straight as the starter in Washington. In those three seasons he never missed a game and threw for over 4,000 yards and had at least 25 passing touchdowns in that span. Cousins also had 13 rushing touchdowns over those three years with never fewer than four in a season as a starter. Cousins has finished the last two seasons as a top 5 ranked fantasy quarterback and now in Minnesota he will look to maintain that ranking and even exceed it if possible as he is surrounded by talented players in Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Dalvin Cook, and Kyle Rudolph.
