Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings vs. Atlanta Falcons
Cousins didn’t flood Century Link field with points, but he has another plus matchup before his Week 7 bye. The Falcons have allowed over 300 passing yards and multiple touchdowns to the opposing quarterbacks in each game this season. Now, Cousins just has to maximize the matchup.
Adam Thielen cashed in Week 5 but Justin Jefferson was left with few targets again (5) which was troubling to watch, knowing that the rookie receiver had a great matchup. If Alexander Mattison gets rolling, the Vikings won’t have to pass, but I’m convinced that Matt Ryan will apply pressure on Cousins to respond with throwing the ball.
Week 6 Chalky QB Starts
- Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills
- Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys
- Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns
- Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions at Jacksonville Jaguars
