Cousins has finished outside the top-20 QBs in each of his last two games after starting the season on fire, and I'm not much more confident for Week 6. The Vikings travel to Carolina and face an above-average defense, rendering Captain Kirk a high-end QB2.

Cousins visits Charlotte this weekend to face a Panthers defense that hasn't allowed 200 passing yards to an opposing quarterback since Jets rookie Zach Wilson threw for 258 yards in Week 1. Carolina's pass defense ranks No. 2 in Football Outsiders' DVOA metric behind only Buffalo, and the Panthers are allowing only 6.3 yards per pass attempt. Cousins got off to a torrid start, throwing for 918 yards and eight touchdowns in his first three games, but he's cooled off in the last two weeks. He had 203 yards against the Browns in Week 4 with one touchdown and one interception, averaging 5.3 yards per attempt. Against an injury-plagued Lions defense in Week 5, Cousins threw for 275 yards with one touchdown and one interception. I have Cousins ranked QB14 this week, and that feels too high even in a week with four teams on bye. I'd start Taylor Heinicke over Cousins without hesitation, and I want no part of Cousins in DFS.Bridgewater is more game manager than gunslinger, and it's hard to imagine him posting big numbers this week against a Raiders defense that's far exceeded expectations. PFF gives the Las Vegas defense its best pass rush grade and its second-best pass coverage grade. The Raiders are giving up only 6.1 yards per pass attempt. Bridgewater ranks QB25 in fantasy scoring and lands at QB24 in this week's rankings.

Cousins has only 2 TD passes in his last 2 games and the Vikings passing game has struggled in two straight home games. Cousins should bounce back on the road and be a low-end QB1 at Carolina.
