Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has missed just one of his last 96 games due to injury.
Huddle Up: Cousins was 11th in fantasy points at the position last year. Honestly, for the unheralded nature of his 35-touchdown season, that might come as a surprise to some. Cousins is a solid fantasy quarterback, but he keeps getting pushed down the pecking order as these more dynamic athletes become more polished.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins was on the field for every offensive snap this season.
Huddle Up: Cousins has thrown at least 30 touchdowns in two of his three seasons with the Vikings but has thrown at least 10 interceptions in five of his last six seasons. He has a terrific set of receivers to work with but probably should only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues next season.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins' 2,410 passing yards and 20 touchdowns from Week 10 to Week 17 were both the second most of any quarterback.
Huddle Up: Cousins suffered through an uneven start to the season, but he became a QB1 in the second half of the year. With Justin Jefferson fortifying the receiving corps, Cousins could be a solid fantasy starter in 2021 for those who wait until the later rounds to address the position.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins 'is a name to keep an eye on' as a potential trade candidate, according to sources. Per those sources, the San Francisco 49ers will push hard to acquire Cousins if the Vikings are open to dealing him.
Huddle Up: Cousins played for 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan in his first two NFL seasons in Washington after getting drafted out of Michigan State in the fourth round in 2012. The idea of the two reuniting has been floated multiple times since then, although it is fair to wonder how much of an upgrade he would be over Jimmy Garoppolo.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 24-of-37 passes for 225 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he rushed five times for 41 yards.
Huddle Up: Cousins crushed fantasy owners who banked on him staying hot, as he entered with three straight 300-yard games and three touchdowns in each outing. He should still be treated as more of a QB2 heading into Week 15 against the Chicago Bears. He had 292 yards and two touchdowns in the first meeting in Week 10 in Chicago.

Huddle Up: Cousins has come alive lately, posting three straight 300-yard games with three touchdowns in each outing. He has re-emerged as a useful low-end QB1 in all fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Vikings hit the road to face the Buccaneers in Week 14.

Huddle Up: Cousins has two or more touchdown passes in each of the past four, totaling 11 TDs and just one interception, and he has back-to-back 300-yard performances for the first time this season. He can be trusted as a low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 13 against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.
