Draft note
by John Paulsen
Cousins finished as the No. 11 quarterback last season after a No. 16 finish the year before. Like Derek Carr, Cousins offers boring value in the later rounds. He’s unlikely to finish in the top 10, but he’s a good bet for solid QB2-type numbers as long as Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen stay healthy. Speaking of health, Cousins is famously against getting the vaccine, so he’s a good bet to miss at least one game due to COVID-19 protocols this season.

MIN QB Kirk Cousins - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Panthers

Cousins has finished as QB21 and QB27 in his last two games, as the Vikings have been limited to only 26 combined points. However, he played solid against the Lions, completing 73.5% of his passes for 275 yards (8.1 yards per attempt). His fantasy output was suppressed by lack of touchdowns, as he only finished with one, along with an interception.

Cousins has another tough matchup against a Panthers defense that ranks 13th in aFPA to quarterbacks and 2nd in pass DVOA. This defense has been much better at home, limiting the Saints, Eagles, and Jets to only 42 combined points. This game has a 46-point total, which fifth-lowest on the slate, making it a projected low-scoring game. Cousins isn't a viable streamer in this spot.
