The fantasy football impact of Kirk Cousins potentially joining the Vikings

The fantasy football impact of Kirk Cousins potentially joining the Vikings

With the Vikings, Cousins will be joining a team fresh off an NFC Championship appearance and loaded with talent.

There were plenty of rumors tying Cousins to the Vikings, and now it's all but official.

"We've only agreed to visit Minnesota first", McCartney said.

Former Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is likely to sign with the Minnesota Vikings, sources have told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

In 2017 Cousins topped the 4,000-yard mark for the third straight season. He mistakenly tagged the Vikings and Jets in the note on his personal website before quickly removing them, further igniting the rumors of his top destination choices.

The 29-year-old quarterback was drafted by Washington in 2012 - the same year they took Robert Griffin III second overall. However, next offseason there will be several talented, even Pro Bowl-caliber players in line for new deals. Washington used the franchise tag to retain Cousins the past two offseasons but opted to trade for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith in February, signaling the end of the Cousins era. He finished with 4,093 yards, with 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He entered Minnesota's Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals this past season, during which received a standing ovation, but Case Keenum already had solidified himself as the Vikings' starting quarterback by that point. But both Schefter and NFL.com's Ian Rapoport are reporting that nothing is set in stone just yet. All three quarterbacks who played for the Vikings last season - Sam Bradford, Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater - are free agents.

After missing out on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, the New York Jets have reportedly turned to "Plan B" in their search for a free agent quarterback. Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles' new extension, three years and $54 million with $26.5 million guaranteed, appears to be an apt comparison. Bradford, ESPN reported, plans to sign with the Arizona Cardinals. The Already one of the top defenses in the National Football League, with capable playmakers in wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen and running back Dalvin Cook, adding a top quarterback could put the Vikings over the top. Although he was excellent for the Vikings last season, he was surrounded by a very good team and had an undistinguished career bouncing around the league before arriving in Minnesota.
