Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
We need to start adjusting how we view Kirk Cousins for fantasy purposes. Up to this point of the season, Cousins has a 71.6% completion rate, he's averaging 7.3 Yards Per Attempt, and he has five touchdowns on the season to zero interceptions. The craziest part is that Cousins has also experienced five drops from his receivers, which leaves him with an Adjusted Completion Percentage of 86.3% on the season. He's playing excellent football and it's translating to fantasy success. In a game that has a very high over/under, we should see a shootout happen and Cousins could be forced to air it out yet again. He's an excellent streamer in this matchup. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cousins has averaged 23.65 fantasy points per game to start the season, he should be a QB2 against a Seahawks D that is 12th against fantasy quarterbacks.
