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 256 projected fantasy points puts him at #22 behind Matthew Stafford and ahead of Mitchell Trubisky. He has averaged 20.19 fantasy points in his past 18 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 (#23) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 73%, he is the #19 most highly owned quarterback. Kirk Cousins is expected to come up short of last season's #11 fantasy position rank.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

START EM ALERT: KIRK COUSINS PROJECTED TO FINISH AHEAD OF RUSSELL WILSON IN WEEK 3

Kirk Cousins is projected for 21.5 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #12 ranked quarterback and a starter for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Russell Wilson but behind Jared Goff. Week 4 will not be as good based on projected rank (#28). He is projected for 14.6 fantasy points.

KIRK COUSINS IS A GREAT DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL ($7.2K) AND DRAFTKINGS ($5.1K)

He is projected for 18.9 FanDuel points and 20 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$318 more than $7.2K on FanDuel and +$823 more than $5.1K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
