How did Kirk Cousins (owned in 38.1% of ESPN leagues) get so lucky? He gets to throw the ball to arguably one of the best-receiving duos in the league. Cousins had some tough sledding at the beginning of the season but has quietly come back around to being fantasy relevant.
With the help of Adam Thielen, rookie sensation Justin Jefferson, and the all-around back Dalvin Cook, Cousins definitely isn’t lacking talent around him.
Cousins has recorded at least 300 yards passing and 3 touchdowns in his last three contests. The Vikings, coming in at 6-6 have now won 4 out of their last 5 games.
Tougher days may be ahead for the veteran, although, the Vikings’ offense may potentially be strong enough to overcome these approaching matchups with TB, CHI, and NO.
Nonetheless–There are lots of signs of optimism for this Minnesota offense and it will be put to the test in the coming weeks. What’s even more enticing is that these games could be potential make or breaks for the Vikings, so they will be doing everything in their power to win these ballgames.
If you are looking for a quarterback, Cousins could provide you decent enough numbers to push you through the fantasy playoffs.
