Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Underwhelms in season-ending loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 20 of 33 passes for 132 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the Vikings' 24-10 loss to the Bears on Sunday. He also rushed once for seven yards.

It was a disappointing end to a debut Vikings campaign that started off promisingly for Cousins, the team's marquee offseason acquisition. The veteran signal-caller generated a pair of 400-yard performances and a 300-yard effort over his first five games of the season, generating an 11:2 TD:INT along the way. While there were another pair of prolific outputs from that point forward, Cousins wrapped up 2018 passing for between Sunday's 132 yards and 215 yards in four of the last five contests. For fantasy purposes, Cousins still rewarded owners with his fourth straight 4,000-yard season and a 30:10 TD:INT. He'll look to regroup this offseason as the Vikings look to bounce back to the upper echelon of the NFC in 2019.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Tosses three TDs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 21 of 28 passes for 253 yards and three touchdowns while rushing once for one yard in Sunday's 27-9 win over Detroit.

Cousins threw two touchdown passes in the final 1:32 of the first half to turn a 9-0 deficit into a 14-9 lead. The first was an eight-yard score to Stefon Diggs while the second was a 44-yard Hail Mary caught by tight end Kyle Rudolph with no time on the clock. He added a four-yarder to Rudolph early in the fourth quarter to finish with a 3:0 touchdown-to-interception ratio after posting a 4:3 mark over the previous three games. This was a step in the right direction, but there's a good chance Cousins regresses in Week 17 against the stingy Bears defense.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Low yardage totals continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 14 of 21 passes for 215 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while adding seven yards on five carries in Sunday's 41-17 win over Miami.

Cousins got on a roll early, capping the opening drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs. He gave that touchdown back with a pick-six in the second quarter, a play that spurred on a 17-0 Dolphins run after the Vikings had raced out to a 21-0 lead. Minnesota responded with a 20-0 run of its own, including a 40-yard Cousins touchdown pass to Aldrick Robinson. With between 201 and 215 yards in each of the past three games and a 4:3 touchdown to interception ratio over that span, Cousins will be tough to trust against the Lions in Week 16.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Another poor outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 20 of 33 passes for 208 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 21-7 loss to the Seahawks. He also rushed three times for five yards and had a fumble returned for a touchdown.

Cousins was stymied by a swarming Seahawks defense, as 70 of his passing yards came on the Vikings' final drive while trailing by 21 points. Although Cousins capped that series with a six-yard touchdown to Dalvin Cook, his fumble on Minnesota's prior possession effectively sealed his team's second straight defeat. In back-to-back weeks, Cousins has barely topped 200 yards despite throwing a combined 77 times. Those struggles have resulted in just 17 points for the Vikings, leaving the signal-caller in clear need of improvement ahead of Week 15's visit from the Dolphins.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Throws two interceptions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 32 of 44 pass attempts for 201 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Patriots.

Although Cousins completed an impressive 73 percent of his passes and connected with eight different receivers, he finished averaging a miserable 4.6 yards per attempt. He threw a five-yard touchdown pass to Adam Thielen in the second quarter and tried to get his team back in the game late, only to throw interceptions on each of his last two drives. Cousins' poor effort is even more disappointing considering he posted 342 passing yards and three touchdowns last week against the Packers. He'll look to bounce back next Monday night against the Seahawks.
