Cousins scored a career-high seven goals and 19 points in 71 regular season games this year. His 71 games played and 12:52 of average ice time per game were both career bests, as Cousins took a big step forward this season. The 5-foot-11 forward couldn't carve out a big role with the Flyers in his first three seasons, but he may have found a home in Arizona. While his fantasy value is still relatively low, Cousins might be worth a look in deep leagues next season.
Cousins reached a carer-high 17 points in Tuesday's shootout victory over Los Angeles, picking up a goal and an assist. Cousins isn't valuable in most fantasy formats due to his forth-line role, but his 11 goals make him of use in some very deep leagues. The 24-year-old got on the scoresheet for just the second time in 12 games and isn't seeing power-play time, so don't expect much. Cousins has improved overall since his days in Philadelphia, but he isn't consistent enough offensively to warrant a look in most fantasy settings.
Cousins has been fined $2,000 for diving and embellishment, an incident that occurred during the Coyotes' 5-3 win over Minnesota on March 1, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports. Cousins doesn't have a history of fines or suspensions, so this shouldn't impact his case in any future interactions with the NHL Department of Player Safety. The 24-year-old pivot will look to snap his 10-game goalless streak Saturday against Colorado.
Cousins scored twice in Thursday's overtime win over the Wild. Cousins played the hero role and sent the contest to overtime with a clutch goal in the final minute of regulation. The 24-year-old is one of the more reliable fourth-liners around, racking up nine goals and 12 points in 43 games. He doesn't hold much fantasy value in most fantasy settings, but his goal-scoring ability could make him worth a look in some very deep leagues.
Cousins scored twice and added an assist during Monday's 3-2 overtime win against the Islanders. Cousins' second goal was the game-winner and it also gave him his first career three-point showing. However, the offensive outburst improved the 24-year-old forward to just seven goals and 10 points through 38 games for the campaign, so Cousins is hardly a viable asset in the majority of fantasy settings. His depth role definitely caps his upside, too.
