Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Ugly stat line despite high completion percentage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 18 of 22 passes for 164 yards, a touchdown and an interception while rushing twice for three yards and losing a fumble in Sunday's 24-9 win over the Lions.

Cousins set a season high in completion percentage at 81.8 percent despite missing wide receiver Stefon Diggs (ribs), but the quarterback simply wasn't asked to do very much with Minnesota's defense dominating. Despite his efficiency, Cousins still turned the ball over twice to the detriment of his fantasy owners. His lone touchdown was a two-yard pass to Adam Thielen, who finished with only 22 receiving yards after topping 100 in each of his first eight games this season. Look for Minnesota's passing game to rev back up after the team's Week 10 bye.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Strong numbers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 31 of 41 pass attempts for 359 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints.

Cousins more than doubled Drew Brees' passing total, but was saddled with the loss after a couple of costly turnovers (one of which was his own doing) gifted the game to the Saints. The 30-year-old's 8.8 yards per completion was the highest mark since Week 2, when he dropped 425 yards on the Packers. The difference between good and huge fantasy days from Cousins appears to be based on whether the opponent forces a shootout scenario. Week 9's opponent -- the Detroit Lions -- is less likely to induce an aerial showdown compared to the Saints, but Cousins should still have a high floor in an important division matchup.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Tosses two scores in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 25 of 40 passes for 241 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-17 win over the Jets.

Cousins capitalized on the beat-up Jets secondary on the game's first drive, hitting his favorite target, Adam Thielen, for a 34-yard touchdown. Running back Latavius Murray was Minnesota's biggest offensive weapon the rest of the way with two touchdowns on the ground, but Cousins managed to add a 34-yard aerial strike to Aldrick Robinson, sealing the victory in the fourth quarter. Up next for the marquee free-agent addition is a mouthwatering Week 8 matchup with the vulnerable Saints secondary.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Runs, throws for touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 24 of 34 passes for 233 yards, a touchdown and an interception during Sunday's 27-17 win over Arizona. He added 14 yards and a touchdown on four carries and also lost a fumble.

The dance moves following it weren't pretty, but Cousins looked sharp on the zone keeper for a seven-yard touchdown in the third quarter. It was Cousins' first rushing touchdown in Purple after 13 in the past three seasons in Washington. The rushing touchdown will curb some concerns about Cousins' passing performance on Sunday, which featured season lows in attempts, completions and yards as the Vikings dropped back on just 54 percent of plays, as compared to 71 percent heading into the contest. That ratio will be worth monitoring in Week 7 as the Vikings take on a Jets defense ranked in the top 10 in the league in opponent passer rating.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Totals 301 passing yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 30 of 37 pass attempts for 301 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's game against the Eagles. He also carried five times for one yard and lost a fumble in the 23-21 win.

Cousins completed an impressive 81.1 percent of his passes and spread the ball around to eight different receivers. He threw a three-yard touchdown pass to Adam Thielen in the second quarter and later committed a fumble in his own territory, though the defense bailed him out by forcing a punt. Cousins has gone two straight games without throwing an interception and now has an 11:2 TD:INT through five games. He'll look to continue his strong start to the season next Sunday against the Cardinals.
