We need to start adjusting how we view Kirk Cousins for fantasy purposes. Up to this point of the season, Cousins has a 71.6% completion rate, he's averaging 7.3 Yards Per Attempt, and he has five touchdowns on the season to zero interceptions. The craziest part is that Cousins has also experienced five drops from his receivers, which leaves him with an Adjusted Completion Percentage of 86.3% on the season. He's playing excellent football and it's translating to fantasy success. In a game that has a very high over/under, we should see a shootout happen and Cousins could be forced to air it out yet again. He's an excellent streamer in this matchup.

Opponents have been forcing Cousins and the Vikings into shootouts. That's not how Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer wants to play, but Cousins has thrown for 595 yards and five touchdowns as a result, leaving him QB10 in fantasy scoring. Seattle's defense has recorded six sacks so far, but the Seahawks have some holes on the back end. And if Dalvin Cook (ankle) isn't fully healthy, the Vikings may have little choice but to be pass-happy in order to keep up with the high-flying 'Hawks.

Cousins has averaged 23.65 fantasy points per game to start the season, he should be a QB2 against a Seahawks D that is 12th against fantasy quarterbacks.
