Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was kind of what we expected last week with Cousins, whose pass attempts were limited in the blowout win over the Lions. They'll now head out on the road to play a Chargers team that's allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this year despite all the injuries they've dealt with. What really helps them limit the points in keeping their opponents off the field. The 57.8 plays per game is the lowest in the NFL and it's led to just 29.4 pass attempts per game, which is also the lowest in the league. When you add in the fact that the Vikings are the third run-heaviest team in the league while running the ball 49.1 percent of the time, and it needs to be a highly efficient game for Cousins. The Chargers have not allowed a quarterback to average 7.23 yards per attempt since back in Week 7 and have not allowed more than two touchdown passes since Week 3, so the efficiency hasn't been great for the Chargers' opponents, either. Knowing Cousins doesn't offer much on the ground, this is a matchup where he falls into the mid-to-low-end QB2 conversation because the ceiling/floor combo is just not good. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Chargers are 4th against fantasy wide receivers, Cousins is a high-end QB2 on the road in a tough matchup. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Cousins is expected to have Adam Thielen back this week, which obviously helps. However, the Chargers have surrendered the second-fewest fantasy points over the past five weeks. With the Vikings likely to take a heavier run approach for this matchup, as long as they are not trailing, Cousins is best valued as a fringe QB1 option this week.
