Poll: Kirk Cousins Week 16 fantasy points, O/U: 19.5?

Over the past nine weeks, only four different quarterbacks have finished as the week's top-scoring fantasy quarterback.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees did so in Week 8, and three others have done so multiple weeks: Cam Newton (four times), Russell Wilson (twice) and Kirk Cousins (twice).

Including his two QB1 performances, Cousins has finished with more than 20 fantasy points and as a weekly top-10 producer in five of his past eight games.

During that eight-game span, he has averaged slightly more than 275 passing yards per game with 20 touchdowns (16 passing and four rushing) and only three interceptions.

Someone else may finish as this week's top-scoring quarterback, after all I have Ben Roethlisberger in the top spot of my rankings, but Cousins at least has QB1 upside given this week's matchup against the Eagles.

Only the Saints and Giants have allowed more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and the Eagles have surrendered 21 touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks in their past seven games.

As of now, Cousins is eighth in my Week 16 rankings, one spot ahead of Aaron Rodgers.

Will Cousins score 20-plus fantasy points in Week 16?
