FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Vikings' Kirk Cousins focused on sustaining drives against Packers in Week 8

Kirk Cousins spoke to the media about the Vikings' offenses' role this season in light of Minnesota's struggles on defense.

What It Means:

Cousins said "I think it's important for our offense to possess the football, I think it's important for us to sustain drives. Turnovers prevent you from sustaining drives, not converting third downs, getting into third downs that are more or less unconvertable because they're third and 15+, you gotta stay out of those situations. We take pride in that and regardless of what is going on around you, you want to be that way on offense no matter what." The Vikings defense actually ranks better (18th) than their offense (24th) in numberFire's NFL Power Rankings so far this season. After being held scoreless until midway through the third quarter when the game was all but over against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7, Cousins and the Vikings are looking to rebound against the Packers in Week 8. Cousins will face a Green Bay defense ranked 14th against quarterbacks and our models project him for 15.8 FanDuel points.

The Vikings are 6.0-point underdogs against the Packers in Week 8. Their implied team total of 22.25 points is the seventh-lowest total on Sunday's main slate, according to numberFire's DFS Heat Map. Cousins' salary is $7,100 and he is the QB22 in our weekly rankings.
