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.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 19-of-38 passes for 220 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Cousins managed just three touchdown passes through the first four games, but he has managed 11 across the past four to re-emerge as a decent low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Vikings travel to meet the Cowboys on Sunday night in Week 10.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 23 of his 26 passes for 285 yards and rushed twice for two yards in a 19-9 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Although he was efficient, the lack of touchdowns was brutal for fantasy owners hoping Cousins would continue his recent surge. He's been inconsistent, but Cousins will have QB1 upside against the Kansas City Chiefs next time out.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 24 of his 34 passes for 337 yards and four touchdowns in a 42-30 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 7, his second straight game with four touchdown passes.
Huddle Up: After drawing criticism early in the year, Cousins has topped 300 passing yards in three straight games, throwing 10 touchdowns in that span. He can be deployed as a QB1 against the Washington Redskins in Week 8.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 22-for-29 for 333 yards, four touchdowns and one interception against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Cousins struggled early in the season but has posted back-to-back 300 yard games and has six touchdowns during that span. He will be facing the Detroit Lions next week and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 22-for-27 for 306 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Giants in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Cousins bounced back after a slow start to the season with his first 300-yard game and first game with multiple touchdown passes. He will be facing a solid Philadelphia Eagles defense next week and will be a borderline starting option in most fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 27 of 36 passes for 233 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 4. Cousins was sacked six times and fumbled twice, losing one.
Huddle Up: Cousins' final numbers don't do justice to how locked down the Vikings were offensively. Most of his passing yardage came late with the Bears holding a 16-0 lead, and they barely threatened Chicago during the opening three quarters. Things should be easier against the Giants in Week 5, but that probably just means a bigger dose of Dalvin Cook and possibly Alexander Mattison. Cousins currently can't be trusted in a fantasy lineup.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 15-of-21 passes for 174 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders and he ran four times for 16 yards.
Huddle Up: Cousins totaled just 502 passing yards through three games with three passing scores, two interceptions and one rushing TD. He isn't being asked to do much with Dalvin Cook running the ball effectively. As long as the run game is going well it appears Cousins will be more of a caretaker and not much of a fantasy option. At best he is a low-end QB2 heading into Week 4 at Chicago.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 14-of-32 passes for 230 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 2 road loss against the Green Bay Packers. He ran twice for 17 yards and also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: It was an ugly game for Cousins, who turned the ball over three times. That's just 328 passing yards, two TD throws and two picks through two games. Not exactly a fantasy bonanza. He remains a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.
