Neither of the QBs in this matchup are exactly enticing from a fantasy perspective. While the Colts defense just get taken advantage of by Minshew, the Vikings are going to aim to run the ball until they absolutely have to throw it. This just doesn't create enough opportunity for Cousins to finish as a viable streaming option above some of the other options at the position. He's a mid-range QB2 this week.

Kirk Cousins plays efficiently in Week 1 loss

Kirk Cousins completed 19 of 25 pass attempts for 259 yards, 2 TDs and an INT, adding four carries for 34 yards in the Vikings’ 43-34 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins saw a small workload, though he made the most of it with an efficient afternoon, delivering two touchdown strikes to Adam Thielen. Cousins will occasionally put up a QB1 week, but he’s better suited for deeper leagues and 2QB formats due to the Vikings’ run-first gameplan.
