Cousins has put up stellar numbers to start the season and he should be a QB2 with upside at home against a Browns D that played great against the Chicago Bears last week.The Browns do not pass the ball enough for Mayfield to put up huge passing numbers, but the Vikings are just 26th against fantasy quarterbacks. Mayfield is a low-end QB2 on the road this week.
