DeMarcus Cousins finished with 12 points (4-11 FG, 1-6 3PT, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, and a block in the losing effort.
Boogie logged some solid minutes off the bench for Denver in this one. He will be tough to trust in fantasy playing behind the reigning MVP, but it is always fun to see him playing well.
DeMarcus Cousins scored 31 points (10-14 FG, 8-9 FT, 3-4 3-PT), nine boards, four assists, a block and three steals against the Rockets on Friday.
Boogie had his best game of the season on Friday, nearly posting a double-double in just 23 minutes of action. This success is likely shortlived, as Cousins was filling in for an injured Nikola Jokic in this game, but this performance is an indicator of Boogie's DFS value and streaming appeal any time Jokic is out.
DeMarcus Cousins finished Sunday night's tilt with 19 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3PT, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, one steal, and one block to go along with three turnovers in 18 minutes of action in the Nuggets' 124-92 blowout win over the Trailblazers.
This was the best performance that Cousins has produced so far this season as he finished just shy of a triple-double in a blowout win Sunday night. It's unlikely that Cousins produces more performances like this going forward as he saw more minutes than usual due to the nature of the game but he may need to be monitored as the Nuggets may give him more run after the strong performance Sunday night.
