2024 Season Outlooks

Cousins signed with the Falcons this offseason, and he should be considered a high-end No. 2 Fantasy quarterback. He's worth drafting with a late-round pick in all one-quarterback leagues, and he's a mid-round selection in Superflex and two-quarterback formats. Cousins, 36 in August, has to prove he's fully recovered from last year's Achilles injury suffered in Week 8, but he appears on track for a full recovery. With the Falcons, Cousins has quality weapons in Drake London, Kyle Pitts, Darnell Mooney and Bijan Robinson, and the offense in Atlanta should be more pass-happy than in years past with new coordinator Zac Robinson. Cousins has averaged at least 20.5 Fantasy points in four years in a row and nine of the past 10 seasons, and he should stay in that range this year. As long as he's healthy, Cousins has the chance to finish as a low-end No. 1 Fantasy quarterback in 2024.

Cousins signed with the Falcons in March and gives Atlanta some hope after the failed Desmond Ridder experiment of 2023. Cousins got off to a hot start in Minnesota last season, racking up 2,331 passing yards and 18 touchdowns (and just five interceptions) through eight games, but succumbed to a torn Achilles that ended his season at the midpoint. He'll have no shortage of targets to work with in RB Bijan Robinson, WR Drake London and underused TE Kyle Pitts, but his lack of mobility is always a concern. While he's expected to give the Atlanta offense a boost, the 35-year-old pocket passer is a solid QB2 with a ceiling of a fringe QB1.
