Summary

After four straight seasons of top 10 fantasy production, Kirk Cousins ended his 2019 season as the QB19. The difference in those five seasons came down to the volume of his passing attempts, as he attempted nearly 100 less passes in 2019 compared to those four previous seasons. With the Vikings finding ways to win with the ball out of Cousins hands and the explosion of Dalvin Cook early on, Cousins was asked to do a lot less in 2019. The one positive for Cousins in 2019 was his lack of turnovers as he threw a career low in only six interceptions. With the Vikings trading away Stefon Diggs this offseason to the Bills, you have to wonder if Cousins takes another hit in production. (April 30)
