Kirk Cousins: After kicking off the season with three straight top-12 scoring weeks, Cousins has flatlined the past two weeks with QB28 (10.1 points) and QB23 (13.4 points) scoring weeks. He still passed for 8.1 yards per attempt last week, but not smashing against the Lions defense was a letdown. 

This week, he draws a Carolina defense that is fourth in the NFL in passing points allowed (11.8 per game). They have not been overly challenged by high-end passers to open the year outside of Dak Prescott, but on the road with a marginal team total, Cousins is a mid-to-back QB2.
