Expert 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Dalton is still missing A.J. Green and John Ross so even though he throws a ton of passes and has a solid game script ahead of him, it just isn't enough to warrant starting him against a stout Ravens' defense.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Cousins did what he has done his entire career: beat up on bad teams. The only think last week proved is that Mike Zimmer is willing to pass a little more so Diggs doesn't leave town. Now, Cousins faces an Eagles team that is strong up front, but has a weak secondary. In theory, the Vikings would come out and pass a lot, and Cousins has averaged over 300 yards per game against Philly in his career, making things even better. That won't happen with Zimmer as HC, but the Vikings should at least have to pass later in the game after the over-commitment to run causes them to struggle. He's a decent bye week replacement. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Eagles are 22nd against fantasy quarterbacks, Cousins has a chance to build on his solid Week 5 game at home in a good matchup. He is a QB2 this week. 
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 Dalton is a satisfactory streaming option against a Ravens passing defense that allows the 4th-most passing yards per game, but he is devoid of weapons with the absences of A.J. Green and John Ross III. Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate will be carrying the load. Don't expect a ton from upside, but he should be serviceable if you need a QB.
