Week 14 vs. Detroit Lions
Kirk Cousins had another solid outing last week, finishing with 276 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He threw the ball 38 times, which tied a season-high, as Minnesota dealt with the absence of Dalvin Cook following his injury. Cousins has played well, scoring at least two touchdowns in seven of his last eight games. His production should continue this week as he faces a terrible Lions defense which has given up the third-most passing yards to quarterbacks. Based on his production and the matchup, Cousins should be viewed as a strong QB1 option in Week 14. He already put up QB1 numbers when he played the Lions earlier this season, finishing with his best game of the season: 338 yards, four touchdowns.
