Cousins is also one of a few handful of top fantasy options averaging over 40 fantasy points a game based on the site you play. Entering Tuesday Night contests on FanDuel, Cousins is averaging 45.4 points and nearly three points higher than any other player on the court.


Here are the top 5 fantasy centers in 2014-15:

* DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings: Cousins has been one of the most consistent centers in the NBA this season resulting in great results for his fantasy owners. In the month of January, Cousins topped the 30 point mark twice to go with seven games of over 20 points. The Kings center also failed to reach the double digit mark in only two of the contests he appeared in. He also added at least four assists in nine contests over that same stretch.

* Nikola Vucevic, Orlando Magic: Vucevic is putting together a monster season together for the struggling magic while being one of the only bright spots on the team. The Magics center is averaging 19.4 points per game to go along with 11.4 rebounds. In January Vucevic posted 11 double doubles helping his fantasy owners in both categories.

* DeAndre Jordan, Los Angeles Clippers: Jordan is some what of a forgotten fantasy hero behind both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. The reality for fantasy owners is a rebounding monster who had six games in January with over 15 rebounds. The downside to Jordan is lack of big time scoring.

* Andre Drummond, Detroit Pistons: The Pistons center finished the month of January averaging 11.4 points to go with 13 rebounds a game. The downside to Drummond is his lack of assists only around .7 per contests.

* Marc Gasol, Memphis Grizzlies: Gasol might not be one of the top rebounders of all the centers but he makes up for it averaging nearly 19 points a game. The versatile big man also adds nearly four assists a game and two blocks. The Grizzlies center failed to reach double digit points in only one contest in the month of January.
