Projected Week 1 starter: Kirk Cousins

Backups: Trevor Siemian, Kyle Sloter, Peter Pujals

2018 outlook: The Vikings are all-in on Kirk Cousins. After an impressive 2017 campaign led by Case Keenum, Minnesota looked to upgrade at quarterback and keep the rest of the team relatively intact. Cousins has put up impressive numbers for years with Washington, but now he'll have to translate that to a franchise that expects to be in the mix atop the NFC.

In case of emergency: Trevor Siemian's starts for the Broncos last year fell far short of expectation, but if he could keep the ball secure and let the rest of the Vikings roster take care of the winning part of the game, the Vikings could still be contenders.

Long term plans: After signing Cousins to such a monster deal, it's unlikely the Vikings look elsewhere for quarterback help any time soon.
