Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 11-for-26 for 113 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Cousins struggled against the Colts defense and was also sacked three times during the game. He will be facing another tough defense next week and should only be an option in two-quarterback leagues.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has 'dialed in his accuracy' over the course of training camp, according to Arif Hasan of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: His numbers slipped a bit last year as Minnesota embraced a run-heavy approach, but he has completed more than 69 percent of his passes in both seasons with the Vikings and has tossed at least 25 touchdowns in five consecutive seasons. Cousins is a high-end QB2 with streaming potential.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins earned a 84.1 Pro Football Focus passing grade on throws outside the pocket in 2019 which ranked second among quarterbacks.
Huddle Up: Cousins is underrated on the move, and he's ranked in the fantasy QB top 15 in each of his two seasons with Minnesota. He's now without WR Stefon Diggs, but he's still a low-end QB2.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins led the NFL with an average depth of target of 19.2 yards on touchdown passes in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Cousins could see a dip in this department in 2020 following the offseason trade of WR Stefon Diggs, but it bodes well for rookie WR Justin Jefferson, who is the most likely replacement across from WR Adam Thielen. Cousins relies heavily on efficiency and is a low-upside QB1 in a run-first offense.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins threw five interceptions on 165 pass attempts without RB Dalvin Cook on the field in 2019, according to Next Gen Stats. Cousins threw just one interception on 279 pass attempts when Cook was on the field.
Huddle Up: Cook rushed for 1,135 yards and 13 touchdowns on 250 attempts last season, and he caught 53 of 63 targets for another 519 yards. When he's healthy and on the field, he's a high-end RB1 and Cousins can be a low-end QB1 in pass-friendly matchups.
