It’s pretty clear that the Minnesota Vikings are the Dalvin Cook show. Still, quarterback Kirk Cousins has had a supporting role to play in the team’s recent three-game win streak. That could bump up to four games this week when they take on the Dallas Cowboys, and it gives Cousins some limited appeal in fantasy football.
Fantasy Football analysis: Vikings QB Kirk Cousins
Cousins has six touchdown and one interception over the team’s last three games. He threw a pair of scores and adding 292 passing yards last week against the Bears, and the week before that he threw three touchdowns to help beat the Lions.
The Cowboys have given up multiple touchdowns to opposing passers in every game but two this season, for a total of 20 scores to just three interceptions. Cook will once again be doing most of the damage in this one, but Cousins is a decent streamer or QB2 with some upside this week.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Kirk Cousins.
