C.J. McCollum was remarkably efficient vs. the Hawks on Tuesday, making 10-of-16 from the field for 28 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and six 3-pointers.
He had an effective field goal percentage of 105.6 for 19 points in the first half, but the Blazers took their foot off the gas in an easy win. McCollum has been fantastic on offense this summer and will be worth watching in deeper leagues. Jul 15 - 5:50 PM

Date:

C.J. McCollum scored 19 points with five boards, three assists, two steals, one turnover and one 3-pointer.

He made all six shots from the line and the Blazers continue to count on him as their go-to guy. They are probably not going to bring back Mo Williams, suggesting McCollum has some playing time coming his way.
Jul 13 - 10:55 PM

C.J. McCollum shot 4-of-11 from the field and 7-of-13 from the line for 16 points with one board, two assists, four steals and one 3-pointer.

His steals weren't cheapies either and his quick hands were on display. On the other end, McCollum was involved in a majority of the plays, which was the story last year as he led the summer league in shot attempts per game. Hopefully, he can stay healthy and get some more minutes in his second season.

C.J. McCollum said he will play in Las Vegas Summer League in July.

He was firing at will last summer in Vegas, leading the league with a whopping 20.2 shot attempts per game. McCollum's foot injury delayed the start of his NBA career, but he never really had much of a chance to shine while Damian Lillard and Wes Matthews were on the court. He should have a lot on his plate again in Vegas.
May 16 - 4:16 PM

C.J. McCollum played just 12 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday with two points, two boards and two steals.

The loss of Mo Williams does not look like it will help the rookie and his coach doesn't quite trust him yet. Fantasy owners will have to wait a while before we see what the potential high-volume guy can do.
Mar 14 - 11:30 PM

C.J. McCollum played just four minutes against the Wolves on Sunday.

He did not score and wasn't in the game at all in the second half. Coach Terry Stotts knows what he's doing and maybe he likes McCollum more while LaMarcus Aldridge (groin) is active. Regardless, McCollum has almost no value while Damian Lillard, Wes Matthews and Mo Williams are healthy.
Feb 24 - 1:30 AM

C.J. McCollum hit 5-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, three assists and two steals in 27 minutes of Tuesday's loss.

CJM has now scored 15 and 19 points in each of his last two games, and while we doubt it lasts, he should at least be on your radar at this point.
Feb 12 - 1:27 AM

C.J. McCollum scored a career-high 19 points against the Timberwolves on Saturday with three boards, three assists, two steals, three 3-pointers and four turnovers in 28 minutes.

He also put up career highs in minutes, assists, rebounds, turnovers and 3-pointers while matching his best in steals. Damian Lillard and Wes Mathews were in a bit of foul trouble tonight and it gave the rookie some extra playing time. Chances are this game wasn't enough to sway coach Terry Stotts to give McCollum more than his 13.6 minutes-per-game season average, but owners in deep leagues can give him a look for his impressive ceiling as a volume scorer.
Feb 8 - 10:47 PM

C.J. McCollum scored nine points in 12 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

He fell out of the rotation on Wednesday and returned due to Mo Williams (personal) not being with the team. McCollum won't be getting big minutes even with Damian Lillard and Wes Matthews as one of the best scoring backcourts in the NBA.
Feb 7 - 10:49 PM

C.J. McCollum played 15 minutes against the Rockets on Monday, scoring seven points with one board, one block and one 3-pointer.

While it wasn't much, tonight was the first game in which the rookie played next to Damian Lillard. McCollum could see a couple extra minutes should Nic Batum (finger) miss Tuesday's game, but it's not enough to move the needle on him as a pickup in most leagues.
Jan 21 - 12:41 AM

C.J. McCollum played 12 minutes off the bench against the Cavs on Wednesday with two points and two boards.

He plays almost all of his minutes next to Mo Williams and that didn't change tonight. McCollum seems like his minutes won't be cracking 16 while the Blazers are healthy, which means there's not a lot of affinity for fantasy owners to be drawn to the idea of picking him up.
Jan 16 - 2:56 AM

C.J. McCollum had his best game as a pro with a career-high 10 points in 14 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday, adding one board, one assist and two 3-pointers.

He was feeling it with five of his six shots coming from beyond 17 feet. McCollum played 14 minutes off the bench in back-to-back games and looks quite comfortable next to Mo Williams. While we love what he did in Las Vegas Summer League and he's shown he can score in the small sample size with the big boys, he's still going to need some players to miss time in order to have value in most fantasy leagues.
Jan 12 - 2:35 AM

C.J. McCollum will play most of his minutes alongside Mo Williams for the time being, according to coach Terry Stotts

McCollum made his NBA debut on Wednesday, scoring four points with two boards and one steal in 14 minutes vs. Orlando. The Blazers have expressed their desire to play the rookie more at shooting guard, so this quote falls in line with everything else. McCollum has very little fantasy value despite some upside.
Jan 10 - 3:56 PM

C.J. McCollum made his NBA debut on Wednesday vs. the Magic, scoring four points with two boards, one steal and one turnover in 14 minutes.

He checked in during the first quarter and was in the rotation tonight. The Blazers used Will Barton more on Tuesday, which kept the rookie from getting action. McCollum is not worth owning in almost any league while the Blazers are healthy.
Jan 9 - 1:09 AM

C.J. McCollum will be activated for Tuesday’s game when the Blazers face the Kings, according to Comcast Sportsnet.

McCollum has a ton of talent and fantasy owners should keep an eye on the 21-year-old rookie. McCollum is coming off a broken left foot, but appeared healthy in the D-League. The Blazers plan to bring him along slowly.
