Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins was exceptional in a 29-29 tie against the Green Bay Packers in Week 2. Cousins threw for 428 yards on 35-for-48 passing. He also tossed four TD passes, while giving up an interception (although it was entirely Laquon Treadwell's fault). He is clearly starting to adjust to the Vikings offense and is developing great chemistry with star wideouts Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. Cousins is a must-start in Week 3 when he takes on the lowly Buffalo Bills.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins will only continue to get better as he further adjusts to the offense with each passing week. In Week 2, he'll take on a youthful Green Bay Packers secondary that is coming off of a stingy performance against the Chicago Bears. With that being said, Minnesota's Week 1 opponent, the San Francisco 49ers, realistically have a better secondary than the Packers. Cousins looked poised against them en route to a 20-for-36, 244 yards, two touchdown performance. Expect a similar stat line with a better completion rate and slightly more yards in Week 2 as Cousins will utilize all of the offensive weapons at his disposal.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins started his season off on the right foot on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. Cousins was 20-for-36 passing with a total of 244 yards and two touchdowns. He pulled off a number of great throws against an aggressive 49ers defensive front. In particular, his touchdown strikes to Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph were both beautifully thrown balls which defeated near-perfect coverage. The fact that Cousins looked this solid in Week 1 is a huge boon for fantasy owners. The Vikings offense should keep getting better as Cousins continues to adjust to his new surroundings. Furthermore, the line play should improve if starting center Pat Elflein (shoulder) can get back into the lineup for Week 2. Cousins remains a solid QB1 option for fantasy purposes as the Vikings look ahead to the Green Bay Packers next Sunday.
