DeMarcus Cousins scored just 14 points in an ugly 146-114 loss to the Nuggets on Friday, shooting 6-of-16 from the field.
He only played 25 minutes in the blowout, adding six rebounds and four assists with no defensive stats. Anthony Davis could miss time with a concussion, so expect some epic fantasy lines from Boogie Cousins if that's the case -- his usage rate climbs from 32.0 to 38.4 with Davis off the floor.

DeMarcus Cousins scored 25 points with nine rebounds, five assists, one block, four steals and three 3-pointers against the Raptors on Wednesday.

Sure, his fourth-ranked 28.2 points per game he had coming into this game is nice, but Cousins leading centers with his 5.8 dimes per game may be the biggest surprise on his stat line. It's going to be interesting to see if he can keep that around six with Rajon Rondo around, but obviously Cousins is going to post gigantic stat lines one way or another.

DeMarcus Cousins torched the Hawks for 22 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and three 3-pointers on 6-of-12 shooting in 35 minutes on Monday.

Boogie also had seven turnovers that kept the Hawks in a close game until the end, but the Pelicans were able to pull it out at the end. Cousins is ranked No. 7 in Basketballmonster.com's rankings and, along with Nikola Jokic, has easily been one of the top fantasy centers thus far, with no signs that he's about to slow down. And if you take out turnovers, he's No. 2 on the list, behind LeBron James.
Nov 13 - 10:57 PM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 35 points with 15 rebounds, four assists, one block, eight turnovers and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes during a 111-103 win over the Clippers.

Nobody is eating until Boogie is done with dessert and he's sitting pretty with his 33.9 usage rate, which is pretty impressive next to Anthony Davis and how he's having a career year in several categories. Cousins is averaging 28.7 points, 13.8 boards, 5.7 dimes, 1.5 steals, 1.8 blocks and 2.6 treys. Needless to say, the Pelicans are happy with their trade for him.

DeMarcus Cousins scored 20 points in inefficient fashion against the Raptors on Thursday, making 8-of-24 from the field and 2-of-6 from the line with seven turnovers, 15 rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

The turnovers are starting to catch up to Cousins with 24 over his last five games. On the year, he's been very turnover prone in transition and in post-up plays, and he hasn't been very efficient overall in transition because of that. However, Cousins continues to make plays as he is way ahead of the other bigs for assists this season, and of course came into tonight as the only player in the top five for points and rebounds per game. Assistant coach Chris Finch should help him cut down on the turnovers sooner rather than later. Boogie is a monster.
Nov 9 - 10:10 PM

DeMarcus Cousins sat early on Tuesday after picking up a couple quick fouls but came back strong to finish with 32 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, two blocks and four 3-pointers on 12-of-25 shooting in 38 minutes in a win over the Pacers.

Boogie racked up the 300th double-double of his career tonight and sealed the win with a fairly remarkable tip-in off a New Orleans missed free throw, despite the fact Myles Turner had two hands on the ball, as well as position. Props to Boogie for keeping his cool tonight and helping his team win in Indy for the first time in their last eight tries. And it's also worth noting that Cousins only has three technical fouls on the season and he trails Atlanta's Kent Bazemore by two, which is surprising.
Nov 7 - 10:03 PM

DeMarcus Cousins finished with 25 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 43 minutes in Saturday's overtime win in Chicago.

Cousins posted a double-double, but it seemed like a letdown after his 20-20 game on Friday. That's how spoiled Boogie's fantasy owners have become. He struggled with his shot in this one, going just 6-of-20 from the field while hitting just 2-of-8 from behind the arc. Still, even on an off shooting night, he rarely lets his fantasy owners down.
Nov 4 - 10:54 PM

DeMarcus Cousins filled up the stat sheet with 20 points, 22 rebounds, seven assists and a steal over 39 minutes in Friday's 99-94 victory in Dallas. He is the first player in franchise history with two 20-20 games over a five-game span.

Boogie and The Brow were doing whatever they pleased against the soft middle of the Mavericks. It was the second 20-20 game of the season for Cousins, who also tied a career high with 20 defensive rebounds. The only complaint might be the fact Cousins was 0-of-4 from behind the 3-point line, but that's just fantasy owners being greedy.
Nov 3 - 11:27 PM

DeMarcus Cousins was a monster in Wednesday's 104-98 loss to the Wolves, scoring 35 points with nine rebounds, six assists, six steals, three blocks, five 3-pointers and eight turnovers in 41 minutes.

This is a candidate for fantasy line of the season, as Boogie hit 10-of-21 from the field and all 10 of his free throws. He's coexisting very nicely with Anthony Davis, as both players are ranked inside the top six in standard 9-category leagues. The bigger concern is that the Pelicans are 3-5 and sitting near the bottom of the Western Conference Standings.
Nov 2 - 12:56 AM

DeMarcus Cousins had an off night vs. the Magic on Monday, but still flirted with a triple-double with 12 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists.

Cousins is the first player since Larry Bird to average 30+ points, 10+ rebounds and 5+ assists through the first six games of any season, so he was due to slow down at some point. He hit just 5-of-14 from the field in Monday's loss and missed his only free throw, adding three steals, one block, two 3-pointers and six turnovers in 29 minutes. He also had five fouls which explains the low minutes. Expect a bounce-back game from Boogie on Wednesday vs. Minnesota.
Oct 31 - 12:09 AM

DeMarcus Cousins posted a triple-double during an easy 123-101 win over the Cavs on Saturday, scoring 29 points with 12 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

It wasn't the mega revenge game like his 41-point, 23-board explosion in Sacramento, but Boogie was able to notch his seventh career triple-double. He continues to bring the ball up and his face-up game looks as good as ever to make him one of the toughest covers in the league. Cousins also has a double-double in every game with at least 22 points in all of them while adding 2.5 treys per game, so he looks poised for a huge year. By the way, Boogie's advanced stats are ridiculous with a 36.0 usage rate and a 61.9 true shooting percentage. You probably want to use him in DFS.
Oct 28 - 10:15 PM

DeMarcus Cousins had revenge on his mind and put up 41 points, 23 rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers on 14-of-25 shooting against his former team, the Kings, in a 114-106 win on Thursday.

Not only did Boogie become the first player since Chris Webber, who was calling the game for TNT, to have a 40-20-5 assist game since Webber did it in 2001, but he became the first player in NBA history to record a 40-20-5 game with at least three 3-pointers. Wow. If you drafted Boogie, so far, so good, as he's averaging 33 points, 14.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 2.8 blocks and 2.6 3-pointers in his five games. He's a monster.
Oct 27 - 1:52 AM

DeMarcus Cousins hit 12-of-23 shots, three 3-pointers and 12-of-17 free throws for a season-high 39 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 39 minutes of New Orleans' 103-93 loss to the Blazers on Tuesday.

Anthony Davis went down in the first quarter with a left knee injury and early reports are that his MRI was negative, but we'll know more on Wednesday. Boogie had to take over the game, gave it a great effort and will be tired after this one, but Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum got hot late and stopped the Pelicans. Boogie's workload and usage rate would increase dramatically if Davis is going to miss time and he was a monster tonight, racking up his fourth straight double-double this season with at least 22 points and 10 rebounds.
Oct 25 - 12:39 AM

DeMarcus Cousins scored 35 points while chipping in with 10 rebounds, four assists and four steals across 25 minutes in Friday's loss against Golden State.

Cousins was his usual self, mixing it up with Draymond Green. He picked up a technical foul during a physical exchange, but he kept his cool the rest of the way in a contentious affair. That's 31.5 points, 12.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game through the first two outings.
Oct 21 - 1:14 AM

DeMarcus Cousins blocked a career-high seven shots during Wednesday's season-opening loss, adding 28 points, 10 rebounds, three 3-pointers and a pair of assists.

Alvin Gentry emphasized that he wants to deploy Cousins and Anthony Davis together as often as possible this season, despite the league's shift toward smaller lineups. For fantasy purposes, they've already proven that they can co-exist as elite options, and Boogie's owners can't have asked for more than a career-high in blocks on opening night. He's healthy and ready to roll.
