Kirk Cousins News
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins had high expectations in his first year in Minnesota after signing a fully guaranteed $84 million deal, but it didn't exactly pay off on the field. Cousins had career highs in completions (425), attempts (606), completion percentage (70.1) and passing touchdowns (30), but the Vikings finished 8-7-1 and missed the playoffs. Cousins is hoping to win more games in 2019, but he's just 34-37-2 as a starter in the NFL and has no playoff wins. The Vikings are expected to focus more on the running game under offensive advisor Gary Kubiak and offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski this year. Cousins could put up decent numbers, but he should be drafted as a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2 this time around.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins struggled to get much done in a must-win game versus Chicago in Week 17. Cousins finished 20-for-33 with 132 passing yards and a touchdown in the 24-10 loss. Cousins had a fairly solid statistical season, throwing for 4,298 yards and 30 touchdowns with a 70 percent completion rating. His first season in Minnesota goes down as a success, but could've been much more.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 21-of-28 passes for 253 yards and three touchdowns against the Detroit Lions in Week 16. The Vikings struggled to move the ball until exploding for 14 points with just minutes left in the first half, thanks in part to a end-of-half successful Hail Mary to tight end Kyle Rudolph. Cousins found Rudolph for another touchdown in the 2nd half and also threw one to Stefon Diggs. Kirk Cousins and the Vikings offense as a whole have looked excellent since the offensive-coordinator change - but the real test will come next week in a must-win game at home against the NFC North champion Chicago Bears.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 14-of-21 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns against the Miami Dolphins in Week 15. He also threw a pick-six in the second quarter. Game script prevented Cousins from needing to have a massive day with his arm, but it was another modest fantasy performance from the 30-year-old. It was his third straight game with under 216 passing yards. Cousins now has 3913 passing yards on the season to go along with 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He is a mid-tier QB1 heading into a Week 16 matchup against the Detroit Lions.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has been horrendous in three of his past five games. In those contests, he has averaged 191 passing yards while throwing three touchdowns and three interceptions. Cousins is capable of monster fantasy performances, but his inconsistency is unnerving. Luckily, he faces the 25th ranked pass defense of the Miami Dolphins in Week 15. The Dolphins have allowed multiple passing touchdowns in seven of the past eight weeks. Cousins has also been far better at home than on the road, which is another positive sign for his matchup. The 30-year-old can be trusted as a mid-tier QB1 for Week 15 despite his recent struggles.
