Kirk Cousins's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Kirk Cousins may be worth a roster spot in deeper leagues or may be a decent waiver wire pick up. His 165 projected fantasy points puts him at #22 behind Teddy Bridgewater and ahead of Tua Tagovailoa. He has averaged 18.94 fantasy points in his past 38 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 18.3 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#26) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 45%, he is the #23 most highly owned quarterback. Kirk Cousins is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #14 fantasy position rank.
