Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 He continued his solid play in Week 10, posting his fifth top-10 finish in his last six games. He's posted a ridiculous 8.1 percent touchdown-rate since Week 5. We cannot forget that if/when his efficiency declines, we're going to see a floor that's lower than most. The Broncos rank third in the NFL when it comes to total fantasy points per game allowed to opponents behind only the Patriots and 49ers. Naturally, that affects the quarterback more than most, as we've still yet to see a top-12 finish against the Vic Fangio defense this year. In fact, 7-of-9 quarterbacks have finished outside the top 20 quarterbacks, which is quite ridiculous. There hasn't been a quarterback who's thrown for more than 273 yards and we've seen just one quarterback throw more than one touchdown. They have just a 6.1 percent sack-rate, but after not generating any the first three weeks, they've totaled 19 over their last six games. The Vikings should be simply looking to escape this game with a win into their bye week, which should severely limit Cousins' pass attempts against this highly efficient defense. He's not someone you should aim to play this week, as he's just a middling QB2.
