Kirk Cousins Note

Cousins becomes Captain Poop Pants in primetime. We know this. This shouldn't shock anyone. With Kohl's cash in hand he has time to grab a new pair of slacks before Week 3. For Cousins' sake, this game isn't in primetime, so we should have hope in his fantasy outlook against a burnable Detroit secondary. The Lions are 14th in success rate and ninth in EPA per dropback, with the 12th-highest yards per attempt allowed. Cousins' day will be decided by his offensive line's ability to keep him clean. They have allowed him to see the 11th-highest pressure rate. Detroit is 14th in pressure rate blitzing at the fourth-highest rate in the league. Cousins is ninth and 12th in clean pocket completion and accuracy, but he melts in the face of pressure, falling to 17th and 19th in the same metrics against pressure. Cousins is a volatile low-end QB1.
