Cousins didn't have as big of a game as many people expected in week five, but he did enough for fantasy managers to feel confident plugging him in as a streaming option against Atlanta this week. Cousins should be viewed as a low-end QB1 this week.

Kirk Cousins finishes as garbage-time hero in Week 6 loss

Kirk Cousins completed 24 of 36 passes for 343 yards, 3 TDs, and 3 INTs in the Vikings’ 40-23 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Even in an excellent matchup, Cousins struggled for most of the afternoon, doing a lot of his damage in garbage time in the second half, with Minnesota trailing 23-0 into the third quarter. Still, points are points, and Captain Kirk gave fantasy managers what they wanted with a big showing in the blowout loss. Minnesota will take its bye in Week 7.
