DeMarcus Cousins's Fantasy Scouting Report

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK 

For the sake of posterity perhaps we are going to keep this article alive.  Below you can see the relatively strong projection we had for DeMarcus Cousins prior to his third serious injury in the last few seasons alone.  It would not be surprising to see Cousins not being able to come back to fantasy relevant form ever again after his ACL tear.  

Draft DeMarcus Cousins as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019-2020. His 2088 projected fantasy points puts him at #13 behind Steven Adams and ahead of Enes Kanter. He has averaged 32 fantasy points in his past 30 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 25.5 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#14) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #7 most highly owned center. In 30 games last season he was the #37 ranked center.

WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

DeMarcus Cousins is projected for 77.6 fantasy points in 3 games the rest of week which is good enough to be the #9 ranked center and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per game than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Nikola Vucevic but behind Steven Adams the rest of the week. Week 2 will not be as good based on projected rank (#19). He is projected for 73.1 fantasy points.
