Kirk Cousins Won't Receive Franchise Tag

Sunday, February 18, 6:59 PM

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins cannot be franchise-tagged by the organization. That said, Cousins is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The veteran quarterback is looking for a bounce-back campaign after tearing his Achilles in 2023. It sounds like the Vikings are hopeful to bring back Cousins next season. It's worth noting that Cousins should have a sizable market this offseason. At the moment, it's unknown what kind of contract Cousins will be seeking this offseason. The Vikings could end up in a bidding war in free agency because they won't be able to franchise tag the veteran signal-caller.

C.J. Stroud Struggles In Divisional Round Loss

Saturday, January 20, 11:43 PM

Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud struggled on the road in the team's 34-10 Divisional Round loss against the Baltimore Ravens. Stroud was not particularly efficient on Saturday, completing 19-of-33 passes for just 175 yards. The Ravens held the rookie in check, which resulted in him throwing zero touchdowns in a game for the fourth time this season. After a successful rookie campaign, Stroud's season will officially end. However, he has emerged as a top fantasy quarterback option and should be drafted pretty early in Superflex formats next season.
