Cousins earned his third assist of the season Tuesday, setting up a Brad Richardson goal in the first period of a 5-1 win over Ottawa. This is something of a hot string for Cousins, who has scored an assist in three of the last five games. That said, the fact that counts as a hot streak for him should have you looking elsewhere for offensive help.
Cousins was held without a point Tuesday in a 2-1 overtime loss to Minnesota. Cousins has now gone five straight games without a point, which isn't all that shocking considering his career high for a season is 19, achieved last season. The 25-year-old native of Belleville, Ontario is not a consistent point producer -- even though he features on Arizona's second power-play unit, he should be ignored in almost all fantasy formats.
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 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.
