Kirk Cousins Is A High-End QB2 In Week 7

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has provided an uptick in production the last two weeks, compiling 639 passing yards and a 6/1 TD/INT ratio in wins against the Giants and the Eagles. Cousins will look to keep it going against the Detroit Lions in Week 7 on the road in what should be a close contest (Vikings are currently favored by one point). The Lions Defense has not performed up to their reputation so far in 2019 as they're allowing 280 passing yards per game (fifth highest) and have surrendered multiple passing touchdowns in 3-of-5 weeks. Their pass rush hasn't been there either as they have just 10 total sacks on the season. The Lions are also getting destroyed on the ground at 133.8 rushing yards per game (sixth highest), so it does seem likely that the Vikings revert to featuring Dalvin Cook and the rushing attack as the focal point of their offense. Start Cousins as a high-end QB2 in Week 7 as he should be afforded enough opportunities to take advantage of a struggling secondary - though the likelihood of scaled-back volume limits his ceiling.

Kirk Cousins Throws Four Touchdowns In Victory

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins had his second straight impressive performance in Week 6, completing 22-of-27 passes for 333 yards and four touchdowns in a 38-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. He threw one touchdown to Adam Thielen and three to Stefon Diggs as the Vikings were able to dice up the injury-riddled Eagles secondary through the air. Cousins has 300 or more passing yards and multiple touchdowns in two straight games but remains just a QB2 heading into Week 7's road tilt against the Detroit Lions.

Kirk Cousins Is A Decent QB2 Option In Week 6

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins could be in line for a second straight usable fantasy performance in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Though the Eagles have the fourth-best pass rush (per PFF), they've been decimated by injuries to their secondary and had allowed the fourth-most passing touchdowns (nine) prior to facing Luke Falk in Week 5. They also have been very stout against the run with a league-low 2.81 yards per carry allowed, meaning the Vikings will likely need to win this game through the air. Both Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have extremely winnable matchups - Cousins just needs to buy enough time to get the ball out. Start Cousins as a mid-to-high-end QB2 in Week 6 for standard leagues. He can also be considered as a cheap (low ownership) option in daily formats to allow you to differentiate and spend up at other positions.
