Don’t look now, folks, but Kirk Cousins is officially on fire. The Minnesota Vikings quarterback has shaken off some early season struggles to post some solid fantasy recently. He’s got eight touchdowns, more than 800 yards, and just one interception in his last three games. Cousins has the chance for another decent game this week against the Panthers.

Fantasy Football analysis: Vikings QB Kirk Cousins

Cousins played what was arguably his best game of the season last week against Dallas, throwing for 314 yards, three scores, and no interceptions. It was the fourth time this season he’s thrown three touchdowns in a game, but the first time he’s done it without any turnovers to drag down his overall fantasy numbers.

The offense will still run through Dalvin Cook, but Cousins is still worth a flyer this week against Carolina. The Panthers have given up 16 touchdowns and an average of 254 yards per game to opposing passers this season.
