Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
Kirk Cousins (ADP: 159.7, QB 11.7)
Cousins had a rough year, according to fantasy Twitter. What started out as a promising season – with three out of four top-ten finishes – quickly turned to concern. Through weeks one to 16, he finished outside the top 12 no less than five times. However, his upside – as a mostly throwing quarterback (with little rushing upside) – was always top 12 then top five. By the end of the season, he finished tenth in the number of games inside the top 12.
While it may have felt disappointing, Cousins put up strong starter production for the quarterback position in fantasy. More worrying was the team’s change in style after week ten. They turned away from the passing game and the return of Dalvin Cook saw a sharp decrease in Cousins’ QBR, with only two finishes over 70 after that time. However, I think given his 30 point fall in ADP since July last year, we can profit from a top 12 player at a value in dynasty. At 30 years old, he could easily play for the five seasons or longer at this level.
