Kirk Cousins finishes as garbage-time hero in Week 6 loss

Kirk Cousins completed 24 of 36 passes for 343 yards, 3 TDs, and 3 INTs in the Vikings’ 40-23 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Even in an excellent matchup, Cousins struggled for most of the afternoon, doing a lot of his damage in garbage time in the second half, with Minnesota trailing 23-0 into the third quarter. Still, points are points, and Captain Kirk gave fantasy managers what they wanted with a big showing in the blowout loss. Minnesota will take its bye in Week 7.

Kirk Cousins tosses two TDs in Week 5 loss

Kirk Cousins completed 27 of 39 pass attempts for 249 yards, two TDs, and an INT in the Vikings’ 27-26 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

He added a two-yard carry. Cousins played solid football in this one, coming back late in the game to take a five-point lead with seven minutes left in the contest. Cousins predictably threw more than usual to keep up with Seattle’s electric offense, and he’s likely to see an increase in attempts for Week 6 as well, when Minnesota faces Atlanta’s generous defense.

Kirk Cousins has solid outing in Week 4 victory

Kirk Cousins completed 16 of 22 pass attempts for 260 yards and a TD in the Vikings’ 31-23 win over the Texans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins played well in this one, making the most of his lowly 22 pass attempts and not committing a turnover in the victory. With matchups against Seattle and Atlanta over the next two weeks, Cousins has QB1 upside for friendly matchups where he may be forced to throw more frequently.

Kirk Cousins bounces back in Week 3 loss

Kirk Cousins completed 16 of 27 pass attempts for 251 yards, 3 TDs, and 2 INTs, adding 14 rushing yards on two carries in the Vikings’ 31-30 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

After a disastrous Week 2, Cousins rebounded in a big way in this one, connecting on three touchdown strikes and keeping pace with Tennessee in a tough loss. Minnesota’s schedule over the next three weeks is quarterback-friendly, and the signal-caller’s stock is on the upswing.

Kirk Cousins tanks in Week 2 loss

Kirk Cousins completed 11 of 26 pass attempts for 113 yards and three INTs in the Vikings’ 28-11 loss to the Colts on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins was absolutely brutal in this one, and if you had the misfortune to start him in your lineups this week, he likely cost you your game. Indy’s defense deserves credit here, but Cousins was just plain bad, completing less than half of his attempts, making three ill-advised interceptions, and forcing a safety by holding onto the ball too long in the end zone. Things don’t get easier against the Titans in Week 3.
