    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins owns a 34-37-1 record as an NFL starter, and said Wednesday, June 12, that his goal is achieving more team success in terms of wins. 'The next level really is all about winning,' Cousins said. 'I'm pretty much a .500 quarterback in my career so far, and I don't think that's where you want to be, and that's not why you are brought in or people are excited about you. If I don't play well, if I don't have gaudy statistics, but we win multiple playoff games, the narrative will be I went to the next level.'

    Huddle Up: Cousins threw for 4,298 yards and a career-high 30 TD passes in 2018 -- his first season in Minnesota -- but the Vikings finished 8-7-1 and missed the playoffs. It sounds like the Vikings want to be more balanced this coming season, and if so, Cousins' current low-end QB2 ranking will certainly be justified.

  • Posted: 5/19/2019 10:35am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins is entering his second season with the team and along with that come higher expectations. 'I think a year under his belt here in Minnesota and his familiarity with everything is going to bode well,' Vikings co-owner Mark Wilf said in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Sunday, May 19. 'He's doing great. We expect a lot out of him as well as our whole team.'

    Huddle Up: After three consecutive top-10 fantasy QB finishes in Washington, Cousins finished 13th in his debut season in the Twin Cities, but a some of that was due to his one rushing TD after posting at least four over the previous three seasons. Draft him as a rock-solid QB2.

  • Posted: 2/8/2019 7:35pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins called the 2018 season a disappointment and plans to 'make amends' next year.

    Huddle Up: Cousins faded in the second half after a strong start, but he still finished as a low-end QB1. He has the weapons in the passing game to finish as a QB1 again in 2019, but fantasy owners have to be concerned about his week-to-week consistency.

  • Posted: 1/3/2019 10:32am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has the backing of head coach Mike Zimmer who spoke at a news conference Thursday, Jan. 3. 'I have a lot of confidence in Kirk Cousins,' said Zimmer, who predicted the quarterback will play well next year.

    Huddle Up: Cousins finished ninth among fantasy quarterbacks this season, thanks largely to a strong start. But after notching four 300-yard games and six with 20 or more fantasy points in the first half of the season, he only had one 300-yard outing and two with 20-plus fantasy points in his final eight contests.

  • Posted: 12/30/2018 8:48pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 20 of his 33 passes for 132 yards and a touchdown and added a seven-yard run in a 24-10 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Cousins couldn't generate any plays down the field, and Minnesota saw its playoff hopes come to and end. The Vikings didn't live up to their loft expectations, but Cousins topped 4,000 yards and threw 30 touchdowns. He should be a low-end QB1 again in 2019.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 2:35pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 21-of-28 passes for 253 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Cousins posted just his fourth game with three or more touchdowns in a game this season, so he really treated his fantasy owners still alive in the playoffs with a nice stat line. His 253 yards were also his most since Nov. 25 against the Packers.

  • Posted: 12/10/2018 7:51pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 20-of-33 passes for 208 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 14 game against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, Dec. 10, and he also lost a fumble.

    Huddle Up: Cousins had well under 100 yards to go until late in the game before gathering huge chunks of real estate and his touchdown against a prevent defense. It was an ugly night all around for the Vikings offense. They'll look to regroup in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 6:24pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 32-of-44 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 13 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Cousins took a big step back after his 342-yard, three-touchdown performance of a week ago against Green Bay. Overall he has 23 touchdowns and just nine interceptions through 12 games, although four of those picks have come in the past three outings. He remains a decent low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 14 in Seattle.

  • Posted: 11/25/2018 8:48pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 29-of-38 passes for 342 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Cousins recorded his first three-TD performance since Sept. 27 in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams. He'll look to keep up the good work when the Vikings travel to meet Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 13.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 1:44pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 18-of-22 passes for 164 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 9 win against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings won, but it was mostly thanks to their rushing attack. Cousins had rather pedestrian numbers. If you normally depend on him for fantasy purposes you'll have to go another way with the Vikings on a bye in Week 10.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 9:23pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins finished 31-of-41 for 359 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 8 versus the New Orleans Saints. He added two carries for three yards.

    Huddle Up: Cousins started off fast with a touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs, but the story of this game was his star receivers committing one big mistake apiece. Adam Thielen's fumble following a catch late in the first half led to a New Orleans touchdowns, while Diggs stopped on a crossing route and Cousins threw a pass right into the waiting arms of P.J. Williams, who ran it back 45 yards for a score. Cousins should remain a strong QB1 option in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 2:04pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 25-of-40 passes for 241 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 7 road win against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Cousins spurned the Jets in free agency and the team went ahead and drafted Sam Darnold. He is now up to 14 touchdown passes, one touchdown run and just three interceptions through seven outings. He remains a solid low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues in a potential shootout against Drew Brees and the Saints on Sunday night in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 2:51pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 24-for-34 for 233 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6. He also rushed for 14 yards and one touchdown on four carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Cousins has played well this season and has completed at least 70 percent of his passes in each of his last five games. He could be considered a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback next week against the New York Jets.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 10:43pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 30-of-37 for 301 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Cousins has possibly produced more "wow" throws this season than any quarterback not named Patrick Mahomes so far. He has thrown for at least 296 yards in four straight contests and definitely seems to enjoy throwing to one of the top receiving tandems in the league. Cousins should remain in lineups in Week 6 versus the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 8:32pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 36 of his 50 passes for 422 yards and three touchdowns and rushed four times for 28 yards in a 38-31 loss to the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: After an awful outing against Buffalo, Cousins bounced back with his second 400-yard passing effort on the young season, and he has now thrown multiple touchdowns in three of the four games. Expect the QB1 performances to keep on coming.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 1:38pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 40-of-55 passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills, but he also lost two fumbles and was sacked four times.

    Huddle Up: The overall stat line doesn't look all that bad, but the Vikings were inexplicably behind 27-0 by halftime and the Vikings abandoned the run for plenty of passing which made the day look better for Cousins. It's a short turnaround for Cousins and his teammates, as they travel to L.A. to meet the Rams on Thursday in Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 4:49pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 35-of-48 passes for 425 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the Week 2 tie on the road against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Cousins might need to continue jacking it up frequently in the near future, as Dalvin Cook left the game in overtime with a hamstring injury and his status is uncertain. The Vikings will face the beleaguered Bills next week in the Twin Cities, so another big game could be in the offing for Cousins.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 2:44pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 20-of-36 passes for 244 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 1 win against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Cousins signed a huge contract in the offseason and he did what the Vikings want him to do - win. He had a solid assortment of weapons in the Twin Cities, including Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph. He connected with Thielen for over 100 yards, while Diggs and Rudolph each found the end zone. Cousins is a decent low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues. He'll get his first taste of the Vikings-Packers rivalry in Week 2 at Lambeau.

  • Posted: 8/24/2018 9:18pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 17 of his 28 passes for 182 yards in 21-20 preseason win over the Seattle Seahawks Friday, Aug. 24.

    Huddle Up: Cousins threw early and often while he was in the game, and with a strong group of receivers at his disposal, he should push for QB1 production.

  • Posted: 8/18/2018 1:50pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed just three of his eight pass attempts for 12 yards and he was sacked once in the preseason game loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: There will certainly be better days for Cousins and the Minnesota offense, but they were pushed around at home by a quality Jacksonville defense. Cousins threw for at least 4,000 yards and 25 or more touchdowns in each of his three seasons as a full-time starter, so he is a bona fide No. 1 fantasy option in all formats.

  • Posted: 8/11/2018 7:07pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins threw a touchdown pass on his only drive against the Denver Broncos in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 11, completing all four of his pass attempts for 42 yards.

    Huddle Up: Cousins has topped 4,000 yards and thrown at least 25 touchdowns in all three seasons as a full-time starter, and with a solid group of weapons to throw to, he should again deliver QB1 numbers in his first year with the Vikings.
