Kirk Cousins's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON FANTASY VALUE

Kirk Cousins owners are expecting a lot from him, but the projections think these owners will be disappointed. Based on an ownership percentage of 98%, the market considers him to be the #14 quarterback. He is projected to be #21 averaging 20.7 FPs per week. With a lower than expected projection rank there are other quarterbacks that are projected for more points that may be available via trade or off the waiver wire. Andy Dalton (158 FP), Blake Bortles (149 FP), Matthew Stafford (161 FP), Marcus Mariota (152 FP), and Dak Prescott (177 FP) are all better options than Kirk Cousins. His value goes up if you do not need him in lineups this week. Kirk Cousins is a better option based on his projected average rank which is #16.
