Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins will be rested during Week 17's game against the Chicago Bears, since the team has nothing to play for this afternoon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Sean Mannion will receive the starting nod in place of Cousins and he should be viewed as a middling QB2 option in most fantasy formats.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins told reporters Thursday, Dec. 26, that he doesn't know how much or if he will play in Week 17 versus the Chicago Bears until closer to kickoff.
Huddle Up: As is typically the case in Week 17 with teams locked into their playoff seeding, it's best for fantasy owners to assume a player isn't going to play when we see this kind of report. If that ends up being the case here, Sean Mannion will get the nod and be a middling QB2 option in most leagues.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 16-of-31 passes for 122 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers, falling to 0-9 for his career on Monday Night Football.
Huddle Up: Cousins was on fire in the middle of the season, but he has reverted back to his struggles which killed fantasy owners in the first four games of the season. He has just three touchdown throws and two picks across his past three outings. The Vikings meet the Chicago Bears in Week 17.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 19 of 25 passes for 207 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Dec. 15. Cousins also gained 14 yards on three rushing attempts.
Huddle Up: This was Cousins' third straight middling performance, though with the defense and special teams dominating the Chargers the veteran QB wasn't asked to do much. That's unlikely to be the case next Monday night against the Packers, who Cousins has often played well against. He has some upside potential in that Week 16 matchup.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins faces the Los Angeles Chargers on the road in Week 15, and Cousins ranks 20th in the NFL with a 49.4 Total QBR in road games this while ranking fourth with a 75.4 Total QBR in home games.
Huddle Up: The good news for fantasy owners is that while Cousins has seen his yardage totals and completion percentage dip on the road, he has still managed to throw multiple touchdowns in his last five road contests. Consider him a low-end QB1 candidate against the Bolts.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 24-of-30 passes for 242 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: It was a so-so day for the Vikings offense, but they didn't have to be great with the Lions offense doing nothing. They'll have a bigger challenge on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 22-of-38 passes for 276 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in a Week 13 road loss against the Seattle Seahawks. He is now 0-8 all-time on Monday Night Football, the worst record in NFL history.
Huddle Up: Cousins might have a case of the Mondays, but he has been an effective fantasy quarterback lately. That's four straight games with at least two touchdown passes, and the interception was just his second since Week 2. Overall he has 23 touchdown passes and just four picks. The Vikings host the Lions in Week 14. Cousins passed for 338 yards and four touchdowns in Detroit on Oct. 20.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 29-of-35 passes for 319 yards, three touchdowns in Week 11 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Cousins started out with just three touchdowns in his first four games, but he has 18 TD strikes and just one interception across his past seven outings. He has re-emerged as a solid fantasy option in most fantasy leagues, and he has four 300-yard games across his past seven, too. The Vikings are off in Week 12.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 23 of 32 passes for 220 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions during the team's Week 10 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Make it back-to-back weeks with exactly 220 yards passing for Cousins, and while that's not great fantasy production by any means the veteran has thrown for multiple scores in five of his last six games. Cousins has also cut way down on the turnovers, throwing just one pick in his last eight. Despite their record, Denver isn't an easy opponent in Week 11, and Vic Fangio knows Cousins from his time in Chicago.
