What to do with Kirk Cousins in Week 10 fantasy football

We go over Kirk Cousins’ fantasy football outlook ahead of the Vikings Week 10 matchup against the Bears on Monday Night Football.

The Vikings offense is mostly running Dalvin Cook. However, quarterback Kirk Cousins does sometimes contribute enough to make the erstwhile game manager type a decent fantasy football option, but not this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Vikings QB Kirk Cousins

Cousins played his best game of the season last week, at least his most productive. He had 220 yards on just 13 completed passes (out of 20 attempts) with three touchdowns and no interceptions. It was the third time this season that Cousins has thrown three scores in a game, but the first time he’s done it without a turnover.

The Bears don’t make things easy for opposing quarterbacks. They’re allowing an average of just 232 passing yards per game, and they’ve giving up just 10 passing scores this season so far. But quarterbacks have had some limited success recently, with opponents throwing two touchdowns in each of Chicago’s last three games. But those guys weren’t Kirk Cousins. It’s best to avoid him if you can this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Sit Kirk Cousins.
