DeMarcus Cousins sat out Wednesday's loss to the Grizzlies but can still consider himself a winner after successfully coming back this season from a torn Achilles in 2017-18.
DMC was a huge question mark coming into 2018-19. He exceeded tempered expectations by averaging 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.5 blocks per game in the 30 games he managed to appear in. Those were enough for him to end the season with top-30 value in 8/9-cat on per-game value. Without jinxing it, Cousins' sacrifice to take a huge pay cut to join the Warriors this season might just earn him a championship ring. He's expected to be a one-and-done deal for the Warriors, but wherever he lands, a now-healthy Cousins will once again be a fantasy force to be reckoned with in 2019-20.
