Kirk Cousins throws for over 300 yards and three touchdowns in Week 3 win

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 30 of 38 pass attempts for 323 yards and three touchdowns in a 30-17 Week 3 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins has looked great in all three of Minnesota's games, and it finally translated into a massive win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. He has thrown for three touchdowns in consecutive games and looked great even without Dalvin Cook in the backfield on Sunday. As a result, Cousins is a solid QB1 and should be inserted into lineups with confidence heading into a Week 4 home contest against the Cleveland Browns.

Kirk Cousins throws three touchdowns in Week 2 loss against Cardinals

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 22-of-32 pass attempts for 244 yards and three touchdowns, adding two carries for 35 yards rushing during Sunday's 34-33 Week 2 loss against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins played a great game against a good Cardinals defense on Sunday, avoiding turnovers for a second consecutive game and totaling three passing touchdowns. Despite the 0-2 start to the season, Cousins remains a mid-range QB1 and can be found on many fantasy waiver wires entering a Week 3 home debut against Seattle.

Kirk Cousins passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 OT loss

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 36-of-49 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins played a turnover-free game against the Bengals despite the overtime loss, connecting with Adam Thielen for two touchdowns on 10 targets. The offensive line allowed three sacks, creating pressure that forced Cousins to frequently dump short passes off to Dalvin Cook, as the running back saw seven targets. Justin Jefferson and K.J. Osborn each saw nine targets from Cousins but failed to find the end zone. He'll need to regroup quickly to face a stingy Cardinals defense on the road in Week 2.

Kirk Cousins activated from Reserve/COVID-19 list

The Vikings have activated QB Kirk Cousins from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Fantasy Impact

After just three days, Cousins has been activated from COVID-19. Monday, Vikings HC Mike Zimmer expressed frustration with players who aren't vaccinated, which leads to a competitive disadvantage under the NFL's COVID protocols. Cousins remains one of fantasy’s best QB2s, while offering QB1 upside weekly with the weapons around him.

Kirk Cousins is placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins is being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and will miss practice time, per Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins is out due to being a high-risk close contact along with fellow QB's Nate Stanley and Kellen Mond. Vikings HC Mike Zimmer expressed frustration with players who aren't vaccinated, which leads to a competitive disadvantage under the NFL's COVID protocols. We know what we can expect from Cousins fantasy-wise as he leads a loaded Vikings offense. Hopefully, availability isn't an issue this season.
