Everyone loves to have an opinion about Cousins, but there's no denying the fact that he has been the QB3 in fantasy football over the past three games. Despite some tougher matchups, Cousins has gotten the job done and he's been incredibly consistent here as of late. Against the 49ers defense that's middle of the pack from a fantasy standpoint against opposing QBs, Cousins can be viewed as a solid low-end QB1 play with upside if this game turns into a shootout.

Kirk Cousins throws for 341 yards and three scores against Packers

Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 24-of-35 passes for 341 yards and three touchdowns in Minnesota's Week 11 victory over Green Bay. He additionally ran two times for -4 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins lit up the Packers defense this week, compiling 341 yards, three touchdown passes, and zero turnovers. He additionally recorded 9.7 yards per pass attempt, which served as a new season-high. Cousins was still quite fortunate not to have thrown any picks, as he had multiple close calls throughout the game. He should be considered a low-end QB1 for Week 12 against the 49ers.
