On the bright side, Cousins needs to lead the Vikings to a Week 17 win to secure a wild-card berth. Yet he's still not a viable QB1 against the Bears, who rank first in DVOA against the pass and third in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. They have permitted one passing touchdown in five games since yielding two (along with two interceptions) to Cousins, who has traded volume for efficiency in two games without fired offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. He's a QB2 despite playing-time security.

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.
