Cousins tallied 38 points (14-30 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists and three steals across 41 minutes in Friday's 116-109 overtime loss to the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins' frontcourt mate Anthony Davis returned from his adductor injury Friday, but the former's usage remained sky-high in the loss. It was the All-Star big man's third consecutive double-double and fifth in his last six games overall. Cousins has averaged 39.5 points and 17.0 rebounds in two games against his former Kings teammates thus far this season, and he's also drained multiple three-pointers in seven of his last eight contests. Irrespective of Davis' presence, Cousins remains an elite option in all season-long and daily formats,

Cousins contributed 40 points (12-25 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 14-21 FT), 22 rebounds, four assists, and four blocks in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 123-114 win over the Nuggets.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins was absolutely dominant, destroying the Nuggets on the interior. He fell one point and one rebound shy of tying season highs in both categories. Furthermore, this was the third time this season that he has recorded four or more blocks and the 21st occasion in which he has dished out four or more dimes. While Cousins continues to struggle with turnovers (14 games with six or more) and doesn't figure to do quite as much damage on either end once Anthony Davis (groin) returns to the lineup, the 27-year-old center has been among the most well-rounded contributors.

Cousins recorded 19 points (7-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, seven assists, five steals and three blocks in 31 minutes during Monday's 125-115 loss to Golden State.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins was ejected late in the fourth quarter after an ongoing battle with both Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. Most teams utilize this tactic against Cousins, and tonight it got the better of him. The Pelicans have announced that Anthony Davis (groin) has no structural damage and is day-to-day, which means he may return to the floor sooner than expected. Until then, however, expect Cousins to receive a boost in production which should likely reflect in his value as well as his technicals.

Cousins posted 23 points (8-21 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists and one block across 39 minutes in Friday's 114-108 loss to the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins played the majority of the fourth quarter without frontcourt mate Anthony Davis (groin) and posted his fourth double-double in the last five contests. Cousins' scoring total was also his best since Nov. 22, the first game of the aforementioned stretch. With Davis projected to miss Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers at a minimum, Cousins is poised to build on the 36.7 percent usage rate he's already generated this season without him on the floor.

Cousins finished with 17 points (7-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 120-102 loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins had little impact on the game, as the Pelicans fell out of contention after Anthony Davis' ejection. He was still able to put up a double-double, while contributing across the board. He has seen his scoring fall away over the last two weeks, something that was to be expected after his ridiculous start to the season. He is still putting up excellent numbers, but the sell high time has come and gone for now. He could get hot again at some stage, and owners should keep an eye on this for another selling opportunity.

Cousins totaled 15 points (5-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-6 FT) 7 rebounds, five blocks, four assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Saturday's 110-95 loss to Golden State.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins was in early foul trouble, and never really got going on Saturday. He had a couple of run-ins with Draymond Green, and this may have played a part in his frustrations. He did manage to collect a season-high five blocks, something owners should be pleased with. This is merely a bump in the road for Cousins, as he has been fantastic to begin the season. He will look to bounce back against the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Cousins scored 19 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-8 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, six assists and two steals in 30 minutes during Friday's 115-89 win over the Suns.

EDGE Analysis

The Pelicans took a 32-point lead into the fourth quarter, so their starters sat out the final frame, costing Cousins a possible shot at his eighth career triple-double. As it was, he had to settle for his 15th double-double of the season in 19 games. The former King is thriving alongside Anthony Davis, averaging career highs in boards, assists, steals and three-pointers so far in 2017-18.

Cousins scored 24 points (8-20 FG, 1-7 3PT, 7-9 FT) to go with 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks over 31 minutes in Wednesday 107-90 win over San Antonio.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins recorded his fourteenth double-double of the season on Wednesday. More importantly, the center rebounded from back-to-back games in which he failed to crack the 20 point mark. Cousins previously held a scoring streak of eight consecutive games with at least 20 points. Aside from setting a career-high pace in rebounding with 12.9 boards entering Wednesday, Cousins has been an elite scorer so far, averaging 26.6 points before tonight's action. Combining these two lofty numbers, Cousins has set himself apart as a dominant big man.

Cousins finished with 18 points (7-17 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block across 26 minutes during Monday's 114-107 victory over the Thunder.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins was ejected after 26 minutes of playing time, still finishing with a full stat line. He was removed from the game after an elbow to the head of Russell Westbrook. It didn't appear too serious, and he should be fine to go for the next game. Cousins has been amazing this season, but has seen his production dip slightly over the last two weeks. This was to be expected after his ridiculous first fortnight.

Cousins recorded 25 points (9-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, four steals and a blocked shot across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 125-116 loss to the Raptors.

EDGE Analysis

Cousins and the rest of the Pelicans frontcourt actually played a decent game but they couldn't offset a 59 percent shooting night from the Raptors. Cousin's 3-point shooting has been an interesting development for 2017, as he's been drilling threes from long-range a lot more frequently than he has in previous seasons. While that facet of his game was non-existent in Sacramento, he's attempting an average of 7.6 threes per game and converting 34.6 percent of them. Despite the loss, he remains one of the top centers in the league and is a must=start in all formats.
