Through four games, the connection between Kirk Cousins and his receiving duo has been everything the Vikings could have dreamed.
That was especially on display on Thursday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams, when the combo brought in 19 passes.
Related players: Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen
The story summed it up nicely saying Thielen has been targeted 55 times, more than any other receiver in the NFL through four weeks. Cousins has 40 completions on those targets (72.2 percent completion percentage) for 473 yards and a QB rating of 110.6 when throwing Thielen’s way. While Diggs doesn’t have quite as many targets, his efficiency is every bit as impressive. When throwing at Diggs, Cousins has gone 27-for-39 with 311 yards and has a QB rating of 118.6. Everything is coming together for the Cousins/Thielen/Diggs trio. The receivers are doing exactly what they’ve done for Sam Bradford and Case Keenum in the past: Line up all over the field and get open constantly.

Week 9 vs. Detroit Lions
Kirk Cousins had his fourth 300-yard game last week, and fifth multi-touchdown game, finishing with 359 and two TDs. Cousins has been the fifth-highest scoring QB in fantasy this season as he's benefited from having one of the best WR duos in addition to a struggling running game.
He should be a strong option again this week vs. the Lions, who have allowed six multi-passing-touchdown games to QBs this season. You can likely expect a 300+ yard, two-touchdown game from Cousins vs. Detroit. He's a strong QB1 option.
