Cousins completed 18 of 22 passes for 164 yards, a touchdown and an interception while rushing twice for three yards and losing a fumble in Sunday's 24-9 win over the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins set a season high in completion percentage at 81.8 percent despite missing wide receiver Stefon Diggs (ribs), but the quarterback simply wasn't asked to do very much with Minnesota's defense dominating. Despite his efficiency, Cousins still turned the ball over twice to the detriment of his fantasy owners. His lone touchdown was a two-yard pass to Adam Thielen, who finished with only 22 receiving yards after topping 100 in each of his first eight games this season. Look for Minnesota's passing game to rev back up after the team's Week 10 bye.

Cousins completed 25 of 40 passes for 241 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-17 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins capitalized on the beat-up Jets secondary on the game's first drive, hitting his favorite target, Adam Thielen, for a 34-yard touchdown. Running back Latavius Murray was Minnesota's biggest offensive weapon the rest of the way with two touchdowns on the ground, but Cousins managed to add a 34-yard aerial strike to Aldrick Robinson, sealing the victory in the fourth quarter. Up next for the marquee free-agent addition is a mouthwatering Week 8 matchup with the vulnerable Saints secondary.

Cousins completed 24 of 34 passes for 233 yard, a touchdown and a field goal during Sunday's 27-17 win over Arizona. He added 14 yards and a touchdown on four carries. He also lost a fumble.

EDGE Analysis

The dance moves following it weren't pretty, but Cousins looked sharp on the zone keeper for a seven-yard touchdown in the third quarter. It was Cousins' first rushing touchdown in Purple after 13 in the past three seasons in Washington. The rushing touchdown will curb some concerns about Cousins' passing performance on Sunday, which featured season lows in attempts, completions and yards as the Vikings dropped back on just 54 percent of plays on Sunday as compared to 71 percent heading into Sunday. That ratio will be worth monitoring on Sunday as the Vikings take on a Jets defense ranked in the top 10 in the league in opponent passer rating.

Cousins completed 30 of 37 pass attempts for 301 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's game against the Eagles. He also carried five times for one yard and lost a fumble in the 23-21 win.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins completed an impressive 83 percent of his passes and spread the ball around to eight different receivers. He threw a three-yard touchdown pass to Adam Thielen in the second quarter and later committed a fumble in his own end, though the defense bailed him out by forcing a punt. Cousins has gone two straight games without throwing an interception and now has an 11:2 TD:INT through five games. He'll look to continue his strong start to the season next Sunday against the Cardinals.

Cousins completed 36 of 50 passes for 422 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Vikings' 38-31 loss to the Rams on Thursday night. He also rushed four times for 28 yards, threw a two-point conversion pass and lost a fumble.

EDGE Analysis

In almost any other game, Cousins' sensational stat line would have been more than enough to pull out a victory. However, he had the misfortune of running into a white-hot Jared Goff and company Thursday, and he simply wasn't able to keep up. Cousins fired a pair of touchdown passes to Aldrick Robinson and one to Adam Thielen on a perfect strike down the seam in the third quarter on his way to his second 400-yard game of the season. From a fantasy perspective, Cousins made up for the disappointment stemming from last Sunday's inexplicable home loss to the Bills. He'll look to stay hot against the Eagles in Week 5 showdown.

Cousins completed 40 of 55 pass attempts for 296 yards, one touchdown and one interception Sunday against the Bills. He also gained two yards on two carries and lost a pair of fumbles in the 27-6 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins completed an impressive 73 percent of his passes, but he didn't generate a single play longer than 19 yards en route to an underwhelming 5.4 yards per attempt. He fumbled on each of his first two possessions, allowing the Bills to build their lead as they went into halftime with a 27-point cushion. Cousins connected with Kyle Rudolph for a four-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, though the game was well out of hand at that point. It was a frustrating outing for Cousins and his fantasy owners, who were likely salivating at this matchup after two strong games to start the season. He'll look to get back on track next week against the Rams.

Cousins completed 35 of 48 pass attempts for 425 yards, four touchdowns and one interception Sunday against the Packers. He also carried two times for five yards in the 29-29 tie.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins faced a sizable deficit heading into the fourth quarter, but he got his team back in the game with touchdown passes to Stefon Diggs of three and 76 yards, respectively. He then capped off the comeback with a 22-yard strike to Adam Thielen which he followed up with a two-point conversion to Diggs. Unfortunately, Cousins was unable to lead any winning scoring drives in the ensuing overtime period, though he did get them into position twice before kicker Daniel Carlson missed a pair of field goals. After signing a big-money deal in the offseason, Cousins could hardly have asked for a better start to his Vikings career, totaling 669 yards, six touchdowns and just one interception through two weeks. He'll look to keep it rolling next week against the hapless Bills.

Cousins completed 20 of 36 passes for 244 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Vikings' 24-16 win over the 49ers on Sunday. He also rushed four times for 26 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins put to rest any doubts about his degree of chemistry with new wideouts Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, hitting the duo for a combined nine catches for 145 yards and a touchdown. The veteran signal caller also put the services of returning running back Dalvin Cook to good use, hitting the FSU product on six occasions for 55 yards. Having put together a clean regular-season debut, Cousin will look to keep the momentum going against the Packers in an intriguing Week 2 divisional matchup.

Cousins completed 17 of 28 passes for 182 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions during Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks. He also rushed once for two yards.

EDGE Analysis

Unlikely to play in next week's exhibition finale alongside the rest of the team's starters, Cousins will finish the preseason having completed 24 of 40 passes for 236 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. While a 60-percent completion rate and 5.9 yards-per-attempt mark likely aren't what the Vikings had in mind when they signed the quarterback to a record-breaking contract this offseason, those figures are also well below Cousins' career averages of 65.5 percent passing and 7.7 YPA, so it's more than reasonable to expect him to improve as he gets further acclimated to his new situation.

Cousins was just 3-of-8 for 12 yards passing in Saturday's preseason loss to Jacksonville while playing four series on offense.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins didn't look as sharp as in his first preseason game, but the Jaguars have a top defense, his offensive line was missing several starters and Latavius Murray loss a fumble (and another later when Cousins was out of the game). We wouldn't read too much into his performance as has time to work out the kinks before the regular season.
