Pick DeMarcus Cousins for your Daily Fantasy Team!

DeMarcus Cousins is an appealing FanDuel option tonight against the Blazers!

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers face off in Sacramento tonight. Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is an appealing daily fantasy option.

Cousins is averaging 24.5 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game. Defensively he adds 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks per game. Portland's interior defense has been questionable at times this season, especially against bigger and stronger players, so Cousins should be able to produce at will against the Blazers. He will also have opportunities to collect blocks when the Blazers attack the rim.

Cousins will be expensive, but he will be the most valuable marquee player available on Sunday. There are only four games on the schedule tonight and the other premiere players are either playing against Denver in a potential blowout (Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook), or against the stout Celtics defense (Carmelo Anthony).
