Kirk Cousins Agrees To Two-Year Extension

The Minnesota Vikings and quarterback Kirk Cousins agreed to a two-year, $66 million contract extension on Monday, according to sources. Cousins was heading into the final year of his three-year, fully guaranteed $84 million deal that he signed in March of 2018. Counting next year's salary from his old deal, Cousins has a $96 million deal with $61 million guaranteed at signing. He has his critics, but the 31-year-old had 26 touchdowns and only six interceptions in the regular season last year, including a career-high 107.4 passer rating. Cousins has some QB1 upside with Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen as his receivers, but Minnesota is mostly a run-first squad, making him preferable as a QB2 for fantasy owners.

Kirk Cousins Held To 172 Yards In Loss

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 21 of 29 passes for 172 yards and a touchdown in a 27-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional round. He also tossed one interception in the defeat. The 49ers Defense pressured Cousins all game long, and the Vikings' inability to get the running game going had an extremely negative effect on the offense as a whole. Cousins finished the year on a terrible note but had a career-best year with a 26/6 TD/INT ratio, over 3,600 passing yards, and a 69.1% completion percentage. There have been rumblings of the Vikings extending Cousins in the offseason as he is entering the final season of his three-year deal.

Kirk Cousins Faces Stiff Test On Saturday

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins proved legions of doubters wrong in a thrilling 26-20 overtime win in the wild-card round over the New Orleans Saints. However, he finished with underwhelming fantasy numbers, as he threw for just 242 yards and one touchdown in the victory. Saturday's Divisional Round matchup won't prove to be any easier. The San Francisco 49ers Defense ranks in the top three in yards allowed per attempt, pass DVOA and passing yards allowed per game and rank 10th in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. They're also expected to get starters back from injury at all three levels of the defense. Wide receiversAdam Thielen (ankle) and Stefon Diggs (illness) are projected to play, but this defense has been a top unit all year and passing volume remains a concern in the Vikings run-heavy scheme. Cousins is not a recommended cash-game option in DFS and he should only be employed as a dart-throw contrarian play in large-field tournaments.
