Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Impressive in regular-season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins completed 20 of 36 passes for 244 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Vikings' 24-16 win over the 49ers on Sunday. He also rushed four times for 26 yards.

Cousins put to rest any doubts about his degree of chemistry with new wideouts Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, hitting the duo for a combined nine catches for 145 yards and a touchdown. The veteran signal caller also put the services of returning running back Dalvin Cook to good use, hitting the FSU product on six occasions for 55 yards. Having put together a clean regular-season debut, Cousin will look to keep the momentum going against the Packers in an intriguing Week 2 divisional matchup.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Struggles in Saturday's preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins was just 3-of-8 for 12 yards passing in Saturday's preseason loss to Jacksonville while playing four series on offense.

Cousins didn't look as sharp as in his first preseason game, but the Jaguars have a top defense, his offensive line was missing several starters and Latavius Murray loss a fumble (and another later when Cousins was out of the game). We wouldn't read too much into his performance as has time to work out the kinks before the regular season.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Leads scoring drive in preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins made his Vikings debut during Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos and completed all four of the passes he threw for 42 yards and one touchdown.

Cousins only got one drive but he certainly made the most of it, especially given his matchup with the Broncos' stout defense. The highlight of his day was a beautiful 28-yard dime to Stefon Diggs that set up Cousins' first career touchdown as a Viking. The quarterback will look to continue his impressive play during Minnesota's second preseason game next Saturday against the Jaguars.

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: May have short stint Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins will remain on the field for as long as the starting offensive line does during Saturday's preseason game in Denver, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

Of course, the Vikings are dealing with a number of injuries among their offensive front, namely interior starters Nick Easton (neck/back), Pat Elflein (ankle, PUP) and Mike Remmers (ankle), so coach Mike Zimmer may have a quick trigger finger with his new starting quarterback. No matter, Cousins' appearance Saturday will mark his first since inking a fully-guaranteed three-year, $84 million contract in Minnesota back in March. Of interest will be his developing rapport with weapons such as Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph and Dalvin Cook (knee).

Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Officially signs with Vikes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings officially signed Cousins to a three-year contract Thursday.

With a fully guaranteed deal worth $84 million, Cousins has inked the largest one on a per-year basis in NFL history, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. There's a chance he won't hold the crown long due to the likelihood the division-rival Packers sign Aaron Rodgers to a significant extension this offseason. Nevertheless, Cousins' arrival rounds out a stacked roster on both sides of the ball. Upon stepping on the field in the fall, he'll have at his disposal a 1,000-yard wide receiver (Adam Thielen), another explosive option (Stefon Diggs) and a reliable tight end (Kyle Rudolph). Plus, running back Dalvin Cook, a 2017 second-round pick, will be looking to bounce back from a torn ACL. Cousins could soon be working with the best supporting cast of his career.
