DeMarcus Cousins's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON VALUE

As of 3/19, DeMarcus Cousins is the #23 ranked forward based on ownership percentage (99%). The projections have him 14 spots higher in the rankings. Even as an established quality fantasy option, if he lives up to projections he is still undervalued and there could be an opportunity to buy 'low'. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better forward option available. Of the 5 forwards (Danilo Gallinari, Kevin Love, Pascal Siakam, Kyle Kuzma) with this market rank (99% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 414 fantasy points in 13 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#13) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks DeMarcus Cousins behind Love and above Green but the projections rank DeMarcus Cousins over Love. Out of 7 major fantasy categories he ranks significantly lower in 2 categories than his overall fantasy point ranking and these are relative weaknesses. With a better FP Total rank than Avg rank, his value will decrease once his remaining games evens out with other similarly rated players.
