C.J. McCollum hit 9-of-18 shots and 6-of-10 3-pointers for 27 points, three rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in 36 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Suns.
The six triples tied his season high, as he did it previously on Nov. 5, and CJM's had it on cruise control all season, scoring in single figures just one time. He's returning solid fourth-round fantasy value this season, but he's on the rise, putting up his best numbers of the season in January. Jan 17 - 12:53 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 18 points with three 3-pointers and one steal on Sunday, but he failed to record any rebounds, assists or blocks in 26 minutes of action.

Portland lost their third game in a row tonight, leaving them one game above .500 for the season (22-21). They're tied with Denver for the No. 8 seed, with the surging Clippers just 1/2 game back, which should ensure guys like McCollum and Damian Lillard play huge minutes in the coming weeks. He's a prime bounce-back candidate with the Suns visiting Portland on Tuesday.
Jan 15 - 12:15 AM

C.J. McCollum finished with 23 points Friday in New Orleans, hitting four 3-pointers while adding four assists and four rebounds.

McCollum shot 40.0 percent from behind the arc, banging home 4-of-10, and he added a steal and a blocked shot over his 36 minutes. He was one of four Portland starters to tally at least two triples on the evening. McCollum will look to match a season-high streak of six in a row with 20 or more points when his team plays Sunday night in the Twin Cities against the Timberwolves.
Jan 13 - 12:22 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 27 points on Tuesday vs. the Thunder, hitting 11-of-19 shots and all four of his free throws.

The Blazers are now 9-3 when McCollum scores 25 or more points, and he also finished the night with seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and one triple in 33 minutes. McCollum has a 30.7 usage rate when Damian Lillard (calf) is off the floor, so he'll be a popular DFS target once again on Wednesday vs. Houston if Lillard can't go.
Jan 9 - 10:51 PM

C.J. McCollum hit a game-winning floater vs. the Spurs on Sunday, finishing with 25 points on 11-of-24 shooting, seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer.

Blazers coach Terry Stotts praised his team's selflessness after Friday's game, saying, "Our passing has been improved the last three games ... It's been below average most of the season." They had a modest 19 assists tonight, on 48 made field goals, but that's partly because Damian Lillard (calf) was absent. McCollum would be leaned on more for playmaking if Dame were out long-term, but there's a good chance he'll return vs. OKC on Tuesday.

C.J. McCollum led the Blazers to a 124-120 overtime win in Chicago, scoring 32 points on 11-of-30 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs, with five 3-pointers, eight assists and six rebounds in 45 minutes.

McCollum scored Portland's final six points in OT, and his flurry late in regulation is the only reason they were in position to win on the road tonight. As if that weren't enough, C.J. even dished out some fantasy advice regarding teammate Damian Lillard after the game. He said he couldn't speak to how Lillard feels or whether he'll play on Tuesday, before adding, "But if I’m a fantasy owner, I’d start him."
Jan 1 - 11:52 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 18 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer against the Hawks on Saturday.

It's almost hard to believe that Shabazz Napier has stolen his thunder since Damian Lillard (hamstring) went down last week. Lillard should have a decent chance to play on Monday, but McCollum's fantasy owners are probably a little disappointed after he didn't capitalize, especially after C.J. has usually cleaned up sans Dame. That said, maybe this creates a buy-low opportunity.

C.J. McCollum hit 9-of-20 shots, 2-of-5 3-pointers and 14-of-14 free throws for 34 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal in Thursday's impressive 114-110 comeback win over the Sixers.

The 18-16 Blazers are currently the No. 7 seed in the West and this was McCollum's first 30-point game in December. It's about time, but the fact Damian Lillard was out again with a hamstring injury played a big part in McCollum's coming out party. Despite the fact he hasn't been scoring at will this season, he has hit double figures in all but one of his games. Lillard could be back on Saturday, but McCollum is due to go on a tear, and it may have started tonight.

C.J. McCollum made 7-of-23 from the field for 17 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday.

Yeah, he probably burned you in DFS and he did so in a favorable matchup against the up-tempo Lakers. Damian Lillard (hamstring) said he'll be ready for the next one on Thursday, so McCollum will go back to his usual role as the secondary ball-handler. He's been a slight disappointment so far this season, but his owners can't complain too much with his top-50 value in standard leagues. He's also run more miles per game in NBA games than anyone else this season.

C.J. McCollum started at point guard in Friday's 102-85 loss to the Nuggets, scoring 15 points on 7-of-18 shots with three rebounds, three assists and one triple in 34 minutes.

Damian Lillard (hamstring) was out, so McCollum's owners were expecting more from him -- McCollum has a 31.2 usage rate without Lillard compared to 23.2 when they share the floor. With Lillard out again in a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers, McCollum is in a prime spot to bounce back on Saturday. The schedule going forward also looks tasty for McCollum with the 76ers, Hawks and Bulls coming up after the Lakers game.

C.J. McCollum's shot was off on Wednesday, as he made 5-of-22 field goals to score 13 points with six assists, five rebounds and one steal in 38 minutes.

McCollum didn't hit a shot until halfway through the third quarter tonight, and he finished 0-of-7 from deep -- it's particularly brutal since the Blazers lost on their home court by just two points. We've seen C.J. go through rough shooting patches before, but it rarely takes him long to bounce back. Danny Green deserves credit for his defense tonight, and there's nothing to worry about here.
Thu, Dec 21, 2017 02:00:00 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 25 points against the Hornets on Saturday, adding two rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He was hot early to start this game and did cool off a little later. The Blazers blew a big lead in the fourth and McCollum said after the game that he has to finish games better. On the season, McCollum has been hotter in the second half with a tidy 60.0 TS% compared to just 51.6 TS% in the first half. Additionally, he's been awesome with his jumper and he's actually been more efficient on jumpers than he has been in the restricted area. Detailed stats aside, McCollum is a stud and will turn in early-round value this year as he looks to play 80-plus games for the third straight season.

The Blazers snapped a five-game losing streak in Miami on Wednesday, led by C.J. McCollum's 28 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals.

C.J. sank 9-of-16 shots and 7-of-7 free throws in 41 minutes of action, and he's scorching the nets over Portland's past three games with combined 28-of-51 shooting (54.9 percent). He's dipped from last season in scoring (21.0 points), FG percentage (45.1%, down from 48.0%) and assists (2.7, down from 3.6), but that hasn't stopped him from returning top-40 value.
Thu, Dec 14, 2017 12:30:00 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 28 points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal, five turnovers and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

He's been busy as the NBA's leader for the last two seasons in miles run and is on pace lead again, but he may be even busier now. Unlike Dame Lillard last season, McCollum did take a bit of a hit when Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) got in the mix. McCollum should be getting a nice little extra boost overall and he does get a 7.3 usage rate bump when Nurk is off the court this season. You probably want to have C.J. on your short list for DFS on Tuesday.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 04:29:00 AM

C.J. McCollum hit just 6-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 14 points, six boards, three assists and a steal in 37 minutes on Tuesday.

CJ has been struggling with his shot, hitting just 25-of-73 over his last four games, good for 34 percent. His scoring has suffered as a result, as he hasn't scored more than 17 points in his last four games, but he's too good a player to struggle for much longer. He'll look to break out of the slump on Saturday against the Rockets.
