Draft note
by John Paulsen
Despite a good per game average and two great receiving options, Cousins’ value is depressed thanks to Minnesota’s run-heavy attack late in the season under Kevin Stefanski. The team’s pace slowed by 6.4 plays per game and had an almost-even run/pass split in three games under Stefanski. As a result, Cousins’ per game production dropped to 15.8 PPG in that span. This doesn’t bode well for 2019.

MIN QB Kirk Cousins - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Oakland Raiders

Kirk Cousins was forced to throw the ball more than 10 times in Week 2, but it wasn't pretty. He completed just 14 of his 32 passes, finishing with 230 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. His 20 completions on the season are just three more than Luke Falk, who has only played 48 snaps this season. For comparison, Cousins has played 118 snaps.

He does get a favorable matchup this week as the Raiders have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. But Cousins has looked bad and Minnesota is very run-heavy. Cousins isn't the worst option in the world, but you can probably start someone better in Week 3.
