Kirk Cousins being challenged in practice this off-season

Tom Pelissero of reports the Vikings are challenging Kirk Cousins in practice this spring with a lot of looks defenses showed last season.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins was a bit of a disappointment last year, throwing 30 touchdown and 10 interceptions while playing all 16 games. His offensive line was abysmal, however, so he does get a bit of a free pass for that. Still, we expect Minnesota to be a run-first team in 2019, which caps Cousins' fantasy upside.

Kirk Cousins limited to 132 yards in season finale

Kirk Cousins completed 20-of-33 passes for 132 yards during the 24-10 loss to the Bears in Week 17. He threw one touchdown pass on a two-yard hookup with Stefon Diggs in the third quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins had a solid first season with the Vikings. He set a new career-high with the 30 TD passes and finished the year with 4,298 yards. Cousins also threw at least one TD pass in all 16 games. He should be a borderline QB1 heading into drafts next season.

Kirk Cousins throws for three scores in Week 16 win

Kirk Cousins completed 21-of-28 passes for 253 yards and three touchdowns in the Vikings 27-9 win over the Lions in Week 16. One touchdown came on a 44-yard Hail Mary to Kyle Rudolph at the end of the first half.

Fantasy Impact

The Vikings trailed early on but came roaring back against the Lions behind Cousins and his three TD passes. He has five TD passes over the last two week with the new offensive coordinator and will try to close out the regular season on a high note at home against the Bears in Week 17.

Kirk Cousins tosses a pair of TD passes in Vikings win

Kirk Cousins completed just 14-of-21 passes for 215 yards and two TDs in the Vikings 41-17 win over the Dolphins. He added seven yards on the ground and threw one interception, which was returned for a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

The new offensive coordinator seemed to pay off for the Vikings offense on Sunday, at least for the running game. Cousins only attempted 21 passes as the Vikings got out to a quick 21-0 lead and won going away late in the game. Cousins hit Stefon Diggs for a 13-yard score on the opening drive and toss a 40-yard bomb to Aldrick Robinson in the fourth quarter for his two TD passes. Cousins and the Vikings will travel to Detroit to face the Lions in Week 16.

Kirk Cousins throws late TD pass in Vikings Monday night loss

Kirk Cousins completed 20-of-33 passes for 208 yards on Monday night against the Seahawks. He tossed a six-yard TD pass to Dalvin Cook with under two minutes left in the game for the Vikings only points in a 21-7 loss.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins' final numbers look better than they were in a game that the Vikings offense sputtered against the Seahawks. It was the second straight game that Cousins was limited to 210 yards or fewer through the air with only one TD pass. He'll return home in Week 15 and try to right the ship against the Dolphins.
