Cousins looked a little shaky to start the game against Cincinnati, but he was able to settle in and put together a solid performance at the end of it. If you ended up streaming him against the Bengals, you should be fairly happy with the end result and the stat line he put up. Moving into week two, Ryan Tannehill didn't exactly light up the Cardinals secondary the way that we all expected, but that offense looked out of sync and shouldn't be an indication of the strength of the unit they played against. Arizona is going to have a very difficult time containing the Vikings receiving duo and Cousins can be viewed as a solid streaming option again in week two.Last season, Tua was billed as a dink-and-dunk QB that most likely wouldn't grow into the QB that fantasy managers had hoped he would become when he was drafted with a top-5 draft pick. However, the Chan Gailey offense certainly didn't help Tua's development and his top receivers were in and out of the lineup with injuries all year. Tua had a tough matchup against New England in week one, but he showed a lot to be excited about from a fantasy perspective. Did you know that Tua had the 5th-highest ADOT in week one for QBs with a minimum of 20 pass attempts with 10.1 yards? He was looking to push the ball deep downfield, which is a huge improvement over what we saw from him in his rookie season. Tua will have his moments as a streaming QB this year if he continues to show this level of aggressiveness, but this matchup against Buffalo is one to avoid him in 1QB formats. Tua can be viewed as a low-end QB2.

It seemed as if Cousins wasn't sensing pressure very well in the early stages of Minnesota's Week 1 loss to Cincinnati. Or maybe that's just a euphemism for Cousins holding onto the ball way too long. It turned out to be a decent-on-paper performance for Cousins - 36 of 49, 351 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions - but the visuals weren't quite as impressive. Cousins is going to have to do a better job with the pressure thing this week. The Cardinals sacked Ryan Tannehill six times last week, with Chandler Jones recording five of the six sacks. Arizona may be slightly vulnerable at cornerback, but the Cards can really put heat on the QB.In a Week 1 battle of former Alabama quarterbacks, Tua came away with a win over Mac Jones and the Patriots. Tagovailoa's numbers weren't great - 202 passing yards, one touchdown, one interception and a three-yard TD run - but the Dolphins ran only 50 offensive plays, which tamped down the overall numbers. Play volume wasn't a problem the last time Tua faced the Bills. He threw 58 passes against Buffalo in Week 17 of 2020, finishing with 361 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. I have Tua rated as a low-end QB2 in this divisional matchup against a quality pass defense.

The Vikings ability to block Chandler Jones is concerning, Cousins is probably more of a QB2 playing against this pass rush behind a bad offensive line.
