COUSINS, KIRK - MIN

COUSINS, KIRK

Cousins joins Minnesota following six seasons in Washington, the past three of which have resulted in a top-eight finish among quarterbacks in fantasy points. Cousins has ranked no lower than 12th in pass attempts, eighth in completions, 10th in yards, 13th in touchdowns, 10th in completion percentage and 11th in yards per attempt each of the past three seasons. He added 13 touchdowns with his legs during that span, which trailed only Cam Newton (21) and Tyrod Taylor (14). In Minnesota, Cousins will enjoy an upgraded supporting cast in the form of Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, Dalvin Cook and Kendall Wright. Cousins is a strong bet for another top-10 fantasy campaign, and he sports top-five upside.


Kizer, DeShone - GB

Kizer, DeShone

DeShone Kizer will serve as Aaron Rodgers' understudy in Green Bay following an offseason trade to the Packers. Rodgers missed nine games last season but played a full 16 each of the previous three, so it's not much of a certainty that Kizer will play. Besides, would you really trust Kizer if he did wind up under center for the Packers? He had a 53.6 percent completion rate and twice as many interceptions as touchdowns! Kizer isn't on the seasonal Fantasy radar.


Taylor, Tyrod - CLE

Taylor, Tyrod

Taylor takes over as the Browns' starter after three years running the show in Buffalo. Though he ranked 20th in passing yards during his Buffalo tenure, Taylor is elite at protecting the football and adding points with his legs. Over the past three seasons, his 1.29 percent interception rate trails only Tom Brady for best in the NFL, and his 283 carries for 1,575 yards and 14 touchdowns rank second to Cam Newton. A sneaky fantasy option at times, he was sixth at the position in fantasy points per game in 2015 and seventh in 2016. Behind a good line and with Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry, Duke Johnson Jr. and David Njoku, Taylor could surprise with fringe QB1 numbers early on, but first-overall pick Baker Mayfield's inevitable promotion looms large.


BRADFORD, SAM - ARI

BRADFORD, SAM

Bradford is now in Arizona after appearing in 80 games during the past eight seasons with the Rams, Eagles and Vikings. Replacing Carson Palmer, who retired, Bradford plays a super-conservative game, as shown by his 7.3 career average depth of throw, which is higher than only Alex Smith among passers with 600-plus attempts since 2010. As a result, Bradford hasn't managed much fantasy production; his best finish was 16th in 2012. Durability is also a massive concern, as Bradford has managed 16-game seasons only twice during his career (2010 and 2012). Bradford's top targets ' David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald ' are strong, but depth is severely lacking and first-round pick Josh Rosen figures to be promoted quickly. There's little upside here.


KEENUM, CASE - DEN

KEENUM, CASE

Keenum takes over as the starter in Denver after a career-best season in 2017, when he completed 68 percent of his 481 attempts for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Keenum's completion percentage trailed only Drew Brees (72 percent) for best in the league, and he was charted as off-target 14 percent of the time, which was third best (Drew Brees, Carson Palmer). Keenum posted the eighth-most fantasy points during the 14 weeks he was on the field for at least 90 percent of the pass plays. For all intents and purposes, Keenum was a fringe QB1. His supporting cast isn't quite as good in Denver, but he will have Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders at his disposal. Keenum should be viewed as a back-end QB2.


SMITH, ALEX - WAS

SMITH, ALEX

Smith posted the elusive career-best campaign at age 33 last season and was abruptly traded by Kansas City to Washington. Smith had never finished a season better than 14th at the position in fantasy points prior to finishing fourth in 2017 (he was actually second prior to resting in Week 17). The 2005 first overall pick set career highs in passing yards (4,042) and touchdowns (26). Smith's game is set up to minimize turnovers (6.1 interceptions per season since 2011), attempt conservative throws (league-low 7.0 average depth of throw since 2009) and add value with his legs (283 rushing yards per season since 2011). That's usually a recipe for QB2 production. Expect Smith to return to earth in 2018.


McCarron, AJ - OAK

McCarron, AJ

McCarron signed with the Bills after backing up Andy Dalton during the first four years of his career. The 2014 fifth-round pick has attempted only 174 passes during his career, completing 109 (63 percent) for 1,132 yards (6.5 YPA), 7 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. That's solid production but also comes via an extremely small sample. McCarron will compete with first-round pick quarterback Josh Allen for the team's Week 1 starting job, but even if he wins the gig, there's limited fantasy appeal. McCarron's abilities are an unknown, his supporting cast ranks among the weakest in the league, he's operating in last season's No. 3 run-heaviest offense and offers little with his legs. McCarron isn't worth considering as a QB2.
