Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins led the league with 191 pass attempts off play-action in 2022, according to Pro Football Reference. He ranked fifth in play-action passing yards with 1,283.
Huddle Up: It is not overly surprising that head coach Kevin O'Connell - a Sean McVay disciple - opted for play-action as often as he did (29.7 percent of Cousins' pass attempts) in his first year calling the shots, but the relative lack of productivity from it is a bit surprising - especially with a receiver like Justin Jefferson on board. It was likely one of the many reasons Minnesota moved on from Adam Thielen and used a first-round pick on Jordan Addison. Cousins is firmly in the high-end QB2 mix for the 2023 season.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins said he's unlikely to renew contract talks with the team until next March.
Huddle Up: Cousins was sixth in fantasy points at the position, which was nothing short of a shocker. He'll be a low-end QB1 to target but would be a better QB2.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins said he hopes to remain with the team even though he is entering the final year of his contract.
Huddle Up: Cousins has posted good numbers since joining the team but may be entering the final year with the Vikings. He still has one of the top receivers in the NFL to work with and can be a low-end No. 1 or high-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2023.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins restructured his contract Tuesday, March 14, to free up an undisclosed amount of cap space.
Huddle Up: Cousins remains a QB2 in fantasy that can be used in certain matchups as a QB1.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has talked with the team about a possible contract extension, but nothing is imminent at this point.
Huddle Up: Cousins is entering the last year of his contract, so fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation during the offseason. He has one of the top receivers in the NFL to work with and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some leagues.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins is expected to remain as the team's starter in 2023, general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah said on Wednesday, Jan. 18.
Huddle Up: Cousins has one more year left on his contract at $36.2 million, so it's possible an extension will be considered to lower his cap hit. Whatever the case may be, the 34-year-old is a definite hold in dynasty leagues after finishing as QB7 in 2022.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 31 of his 39 passes for 273 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-24 loss to the New York Giants in the Wild Card round. He also ran for a touchdown.
