1. Kirk Cousins, QB (Minnesota Vikings)

Kirk Cousins squares off against the QB-friendly Atlanta Falcons who are looking to bounce back from allowing the fourth-most fantasy points (20.6) on average to QBs. While the Falcons’ injuries piled up early and often last season on the defensive side of the ball, Cousins should be able to connect for at least a couple of TDs and 250 yards with WR-tandem Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs leading the way. With most expecting Dalvin Cook to have a monster day on the ground, I can see Cousins having a big day himself, as the Falcons will need to keep an extra defender in the box to now respect the rushing attack that the Vikings did not have a season ago.
