Depth Chart
Kirk Cousins in THE example I think of when I consider the sheer depth of the quarterback position in fantasy. In his last few seasons he was a stat compiler on some poor teams, and he was largely the same during his first year in Minnesota. Despite back-to-back top-10 finishes at the position, Cousins hasn't proven to be a difference maker that can get his offenses over the top. The Vikings signed him to an unprecedented fully guaranteed deal, and on paper it looks they got their money's worth, but the offense lacked a true identity, and faltered greatly down the stretch, wasting a strong defensive performance.

The offensive dysfunction started with coordinator John DeFillipo, who irked his boss Mike Zimmer by failing to establish a consistent run game. Things came to a head following an embarrassing 21-7 road loss to the Seahawks where DeFillipo was fired and Kevin Stefanski, a long-time Vikings position coach and assistant, took over. Following the marching orders to get the run game going, Stefanski had Cousins dial up fewer passes during the final three games than he did during any 3-game stretch of the 2018 season. Despite finishing 2-1 in those games, the Vikings missed the playoffs.

As Stefanski was retained as full-time coordinator for 2019, it's important to consider what this means for Cousins' fantasy value. Cousins has used high volume to rack up big yardage and touchdown totals the last several years, finishing 4th, 4th, and 5th in total pass attempts. The Minnesota backfield would have to be ravaged by injury for this to happen again, and in that scenario I can see Zimmer spontaneously combusting on the field. The Vikings are going back to old school Black and Blue division football in 2019, and Cousins is going to have to be ultra-efficient to approach top-5 numbers again. With great talent around him he's still a QB1 for owners looking to fade the position, but I don't think he offers near the same value he has in the past.
