Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 25-of-34 passes for 275 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Minnesota's Week 5 win over Detroit. He added one carry for four yards.
Cousins has been held to two total touchdowns in the last two weeks, after throwing eight touchdowns through the first three weeks of the season. He did engineer the game-winning drive with just 33 seconds left, as he completed a pair of passes to Adam Thielen to get the Vikings in field goal range. Cousins will have a much more difficult matchup in Week 6 when the Vikings travel to Charlotte to take on a strong Panthers' secondary. Fantasy managers should view him as a QB2 for that one.
