  Vikings | Minnesota sees 2019 season end    Sat Jan 11, 07:31 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 21-for-29 for 172 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round playoff game. RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 18 yards on nine carries and caught six passes for eight yards during the game. WR Stefon Diggs caught two passes for 57 yards and one touchdown on five targets. WR Adam Thielen caught five passes for 50 yards on seven targets. TE Irv Smith caught three passes for 39 yards on three targets, while TE Kyle Rudolph caught two passes for four yards on three targets.

Footballguys view: It was a good run for the Vikings this season. They failed to make the palyoffs last year but made it to the Divisional Round this year. Next season, in the final season of Kirk Cousins contract, the Vikings are hoping to make the NFC Championship at least. We'll see if they can make that happen. This offseason, the secondary is a part of the team they'll need to improve to make that run.

  Vikings | Minnesota moving on to next round    Sun Jan 5, 04:36 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 19-for-31 for 242 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card playoff game. RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 94 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries and caught three passes for 36 yards. RB Alexander Mattison rushed for 20 yards on five carries and caught one pass for 10 yards. WR Adam Thielen caught seven passes for 129 yards on nine targets. TE Kyle Rudolph caught four passes for 31 yards and one touchdown on seven targets, while WR Stefon Diggs caught two passes for 19 yards on three targets.

Footballguys view: Cousins was able to make big plays when it counted...essentially for the first time in his career. He was not known for making plays in big or primetime games but Cousins was money on Sunday. The Vikings ran the ball well and controlled the tempo of the game with their rushing attack. It will be a battle of two similarly structured offenses in the Divisional Round as they take on the 49ers.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins to be rested    Sun Dec 29, 10:28 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins will be rested during Week 17's game against the Chicago Bears, since the team has nothing to play for this afternoon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Sean Mannion will get the start if the team decides to not play Cousins at all. The Vikings don't have a lot of momentum right now but it doesn't seem to be influencing their decisions about Week 17 playing time.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins in limbo for finale    Thu Dec 26, 02:27 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins told reporters Thursday, Dec. 26, that he doesn't know how much or if he will play in Week 17 versus the Chicago Bears until closer to kickoff.

Footballguys view: This likely goes for any key Minnesota starter such as Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Kyle Rudolph and any number of players on defense. The Bears will be playing a team that looking ahead to the wild card round. Sean Mannion should get the majority of snaps for the Vikings at quarterback.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 24-of-30 passes for 242 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Cousins was efficient but didn't need to press the issue with the Vikings in control the whole way. If Adam Thielen can get back for next week's game against the Chargers, Cousins could be in streamer consideration.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins tosses three TDs    Sun Nov 17, 06:10 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 29-of-35 passes for 319 yards, three touchdowns in Week 11 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Cousins had an outstanding second half after a terrible first half. He was able to connect with Stefon Diggs for big plays and hit both of his tight ends for touchdowns. He'll be a high floor/low ceiling QB1 going into the bye.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 19-of-38 passes for 220 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Cousins failed to lead a comeback win yet again as a Viking. He was still a strong fantasy play and not really the reason the Vikings lost. They'll have another tough road game at Dallas next week.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 23 of his 26 passes for 285 yards and rushed twice for two yards in a 19-9 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 8.

Footballguys view: The Vikings settled for four field goals and Stefon Diggs fumbled in Washington territory to take the oomph out of a very efficient performance. Cousins will be streamable against the Chiefs next week.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 22-for-29 for 333 yards, four touchdowns and one interception against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Cousins was highly efficient against an Eagles secondary that is easy to pick on. He'll face a tougher Lions set of cornerbacks next week. The Vikings got a huge win for future playoff hunt considerations.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins surpasses 300-yard mark    Sun Oct 6, 05:09 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 22-for-27 for 306 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Giants in Week 5.

Footballguys view: The Vikings didn't exactly fill the air with footballs, but Cousins was highly efficient against a weak Giants pass defense. He faces another vulnerable secondary against the Eagles next week and might be worth a streamer start.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 15-of-21 passes for 174 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders and he ran four times for 16 yards.

Footballguys view: This line is going to look very familiar. When the Vikings are in control, Cousins won't throw the ball often and underwhelm for fantasy leagues. Next week vs. the Bears isn't much more promising.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins struggles    Sat Aug 24, 04:56 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins went 3-for-13 for 35 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: Cousins has been fine in the preseason so far but he was bad on Saturday. The Vikings are going to run the ball early and often under OC Kevin Stefanski in 2019, so don't expect Cousins to fill the air with footballs. He's a QB2 for Fantasy GMs this season.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins learning to trust his TE    Wed Jul 31, 11:05 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins said Wednesday, July 31, he's feeling much more confident working with TE Kyle Rudolph in their second training camp together. 'I've done a better job this camp ... of just trusting him more and throwing it to him even when he's covered,' Cousins told reporters Wednesday. 'I think today there were probably two or three examples of him catching the ball with the defender draped over him or pretty close to him. He is just such a trustworthy target, so little things like that, building a chemistry with him, you would've loved to say I did that last year, but I don't think I did enough.'

Footballguys view: Rudolph may not be flashy, but he's one of the most consistent tight ends in the league. His current ADP (TE19, 14.01) is something he could easily outperform. Rudolph is not a high-end TE1 but posting low-end TE1 numbers is quite possible again..especially with better chemistry with Cousins.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins eyeing next level    Thu Jun 13, 12:38 PM

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.'

Footballguys view: Yes, the next level would be nice...or getting back to the level they were at before Cousins showed up. The Vikings went to the NFC Championship Game with Case Keenum in 2017...let that sink in. Then let it sting because Cousins didn't even get them to the postseason in 2018, even though they paid him the first fully guaranteed contract in NFL history. Cousins has a ton of pressure on him to perform better than ever in 2019.

  Vikings | Expectations higher for Kirk Cousins    Sun May 19, 01:35 PM

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.'

Footballguys view: The Vikings were in the NFC Championship Game with Case Keenum at quarterback two years ago. Last year, with Cousins, they failed to make the postseason. After giving Cousins the first fully-guaranteed contract in the NFL, the Vikings are looking for championships...not staying at home in January. No quarterback is under more pressure to perform in 2019 than Cousins. He's got a current ADP of QB19 (12.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins expects to rebound    Fri Feb 8, 10:35 PM

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

Footballguys view: The Vikings played in the NFC Championship after the 2017 season...with Case Keenum as their quarterback. They signed Cousins to the first fully guaranteed contract in NFL history, then failed to make the playoffs. This last season was an incredible disappointment, especially given Cousins contract and the hype surrounding his signing.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins has confidence of coach    Thu Jan 3, 01:32 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Cousins was a 4,000-yard passer for the fourth year in a row in 2018, and he finished the season with 30 touchdowns to only 10 interceptions. The Vikings didn't make the playoffs after making it all the way to the NFC Championship Game last year with Case Keenum as their starter. Cousins has two years remaining on his fully guaranteed deal with the pressure increasing to pay off with a championship run.

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.

Footballguys view: Cousins' numbers were inflated by a hail mary catch by Kyle Rudolph. He is going to be a lower volume passer in this version of the Vikings offense and won't be a QB1 against the Bears next week.

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.

Footballguys view: Cousins didn't have to exert himself much as the Vikings defense held the Lions without a touchdown and scored one of their own. It was a dud for Cousins heading into the bye, but he's still a QB1 for the stretch run.

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.

Footballguys view: Cousins was a solid fantasy play despite the wind and holding the lead for most of the game. He'll be a high ceiling play against the Saints playing indoors at home next week.

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.

Footballguys view: Cousins didn't have a big game with Stefon Diggs blotted out by Patrick Peterson, but his rushing touchdown helped keep him in the range of solid scores in the easy win for his team. He remains a strong QB1 heading into a matchup with the Jets.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins posts big line in loss    Thu Sep 27, 11:32 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Cousins was hyperaccurate and stood tough against a scary Rams defensive line. He bounced back from a terrible game against the Bills and his production wasn't affected by a subpar offensive line and running game. He's a strong QB1 going forward with a tough road game against the Eagles up next.

  Vikings | Forgettable day for Kirk Cousins    Sun Sep 23, 04:38 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Cousins was overwhelmed by the Bills pass rush early, and didn't do enough later to make a gameout of this. He'll face the Rams on Thursday night and probably is not a good play with his offensive line ailing and the team generating little momentum on offense.

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.

Footballguys view: Cousins had an interception that could have ended the game in regulation, but it was called back by a questionable roughing the passer penalty. He is clearly on the same page as his top two receivers and should deliver expected value. He might be a top five play against the Bills next week.

The New York Jets were one of four finalists for Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins and made multiple offers to him. New York Daily News reporter Manesh Mehta said Cousins weighed his decisions heavily and left the Jets on the board until Tuesday, March 13.

Footballguys view: The Jets wanted to break the bank for Cousins and they tried...but they fell short in one important category. They're not close and Cousins wanted to go to a contender. Signing with the Vikings, Cousins could and should make a deep postseason run in 2018.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has $6 million in incentives, $2 million per year, tied to his three-year, $84 million deal.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins officially signs with MIN    Thu Mar 15, 03:26 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Kirk Cousins (Redskins) officially signed a three-year, $84 million deal with the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, March 15.

Footballguys view: Cousins has been a pioneer in the 'getting paid' business. He was franchise-tagged twice by Washington and now gets a fully guaranteed, three-year deal. Now, the Vikings just hope he's good at the 'winning championships' business. After a 13-3 season that ended in the NFC Championship Game, Cousins will have plenty of pressure to get to the Super Bowl from the moment the regular season starts.

Updating earlier reports, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is expected to sign a three-year, fully guaranteed deal with the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, March 15, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Cousins is a pioneer when it comes to contract negotiations. With $86 million fully guaranteed, it means Cousins has made roughly $120 million in guaranteed money over a five-year span. Now, he's got to win. The pressure in Minnesota will be tremendous as they were 13-3 last year and lost in the NFC Championship to the Philadelphia Eagles.

  Cardinals | Arizona still in play for Kirk Cousins    Mon Mar 12, 05:17 PM

Free-agent QB Kirk Cousins (Redskins) remains a free-agent option for the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: That's cool and everything, but Cousins reportedly wants to go to a contender...something Arizona is a long way from being. Oh yeah, there's the money too. Cousins is likely to get a contract that pays him around $30 million annually and the Cardinals currently have $19.6 million in cap space per OverTheCap.com. They may still be in the running, but they are bringing up the rear behind teams like the Vikings, Broncos and Jets.
