Cousins did what he has done his entire career: beat up on bad teams. The only think last week proved is that Mike Zimmer is willing to pass a little more so Diggs doesn't leave town. Now, Cousins faces an Eagles team that is strong up front, but has a weak secondary. In theory, the Vikings would come out and pass a lot, and Cousins has averaged over 300 yards per game against Philly in his career, making things even better. That won't happen with Zimmer as HC, but the Vikings should at least have to pass later in the game after the over-commitment to run causes them to struggle. He's a decent bye week replacement.

The Eagles are 22nd against fantasy quarterbacks, Cousins has a chance to build on his solid Week 5 game at home in a good matchup. He is a QB2 this week.

Cousins doesn't pass enough for us to rely on him, but he does have good weapons and a killer matchup at home against a struggling Eagles secondary. If you need a streamer this week, he can answer the call.

Many buried Cousins early in the year due to some tough matchups, but it was a bit premature. Now coming off a couple QB1 performances, some will wonder if they should sell Cousins. He hit a great spot in his schedule, and though the Lions aren't a matchup you need to attack in Week 7, he'll be playing against the Redskins (his former team) and the Chiefs the following two weeks.
