ANDY BEHRENS: You guys might not want to hear this, but Kirk Cousins is a pretty good fantasy option. The man passed for over 4,200 yards, with 30 touchdowns, in three of the past four seasons. Those are good numbers, and that was with a conservative, old-school head coach who aggressively disliked him, especially near the end of his tenure.
Kevin O'Connell is now in charge, after apprenticing under Sean McVay for a couple of years. He has a history with Cousins dating back to their time in Washington, and we can expect an upgraded, modern offense. That might be good to see in Minnesota. I haven't seen that before.
We can expect them to be less predictable situationally, more three-receiver sets, more motion. This is a great setup for Kirk Cousins. I'm going to give him 4,925 passing yards, 38 passing scores, 90 yards on the ground, with 1 rushing touchdown.
