It was kind of what we expected last week with Cousins, whose pass attempts were limited in the blowout win over the Lions. They'll now head out on the road to play a Chargers team that's allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this year despite all the injuries they've dealt with. What really helps them limit the points in keeping their opponents off the field. The 57.8 plays per game is the lowest in the NFL and it's led to just 29.4 pass attempts per game, which is also the lowest in the league. When you add in the fact that the Vikings are the third run-heaviest team in the league while running the ball 49.1 percent of the time, and it needs to be a highly efficient game for Cousins. The Chargers have not allowed a quarterback to average 7.23 yards per attempt since back in Week 7 and have not allowed more than two touchdown passes since Week 3, so the efficiency hasn't been great for the Chargers' opponents, either. Knowing Cousins doesn't offer much on the ground, this is a matchup where he falls into the mid-to-low-end QB2 conversation because the ceiling/floor combo is just not good.

Kirk Cousins plays game manager in rout of Lions

Kirk Cousins completed 24 of 30 pass attempts for 242 yards and a TD, losing one yard on a single carry in the Vikings’ 20-7 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

It was a disappointing effort for Cousins, especially considering the caliber of the opponent, though the blowout nature of Sunday's victory lent itself more to a run-heavy approach. Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison combined for 32 carries, as Cousins cruised to an efficient, if unexciting, day. Next up is an exploitable matchup with the Chargers in Week 15.
