Cousins was asked to throw the ball more than he had been in previous weeks against the Cowboys and he delivered with a spectacular fantasy performance. Cousins threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns and there's a possibility that he's asked to throw quite a bit here again on Sunday. While Dalvin Cook has a very favorable matchup, Carolina's offense could keep them in this game. Cousins is a bit of a risky play due to the game-script dependency, but he's worth looking at as a high-end QB2 or streaming option.
