Kirk Cousins - Alexander Mattison - Justin Jefferson - D’Andre Swift
Cousins is way too cheap on both sites this week, especially on DraftKings as the QB12 in a pristine matchup against the Lions, who have given up the 3rd most fantasy points to opposing QBs.
Cousins has been solid with 18+ DK points in 8 consecutive games, including 23+ in 4 of his last 6.
Alexander Mattison is extremely underpriced on FanDuel and is in play on DraftKings as well with Dalvin Cook already ruled out.
If the Vikings elect to go more pass heavy, it should benefit both Cousins and rookie Justin Jefferson, who has been having a monster 2nd half of the season.
Jefferson leads all rookies with 1,267 yards and has a solid 7 TDs on the season with 3 games over 30+ DK points. He gets an incredible matchup this week against the Lions, who have allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing WRs.
D’Andre Swift is in play as a run-back option on the Lions side of the ball as he has been the team’s primary pass-catching back with 4+ receptions in each of his past 4 games.
Swift can also be explosive as a rusher with a couple of multi-TD games on the season despite missing several weeks due to injury.
