C.J. McCollum said that the Trail Blazers need to ramp up their intensity to turn things around after opening the year with a 9-10 record.

"We need to play like somebody took our lunch money, like somebody disrespected your mother," said McCollum. "I think that’s the type of anger you need have and the aggression you need to have on the court." While Portland as a team has been underperforming, none of that can be pinned on McCollum, who is exceeding all expectations with averages of 22.3 points, 3.6 dimes, 2.6 triples, 1.3 steals and just 2.3 turnovers per game on 47.1 percent shooting. That's second-round value, folks.

C.J. McCollum led the Blazers on Sunday with 28 points, four 3-pointers, seven assists and two steals, but it wasn't enough to avoid a 130-114 loss to the visiting Rockets.

He was locked in a scoring duel with James Harden (38 points) through three quarters, finishing 9-of-19 from the field and 6-of-6 at the line. McCollum has actually improved upon his numbers from last year's breakout campaign, and through 19 games he's been a draft-day steal for most of his fantasy owners.
Nov 28 - 12:17 AM

C.J. McCollum was lit during Sunday's 129-109 beatdown of the Nets, scoring 33 points on 12-of-19 shooting to go with six 3-pointers, four boards, five assists and five turnovers in 31 minutes.

McCollum also drained all three of his freebies, giving him a ridiculous 81.2 true shooting percentage on the evening to accompany his 34.6 usage rate. He's hitting career-highs across the board and providing his owners with top-20 value, and there's absolutely no reason to believe he can't keep it up.
Nov 20 - 6:31 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 24 points on 7-of-18 shooting in a loss to the Pelicans on Friday.

The Blazers are struggling with three straight losses, but McCollum sure isn't. He handed out five assists with four rebounds, one steal and four triples in 36 minutes. He's holding top-25 value in standard leagues after his breakout 2015-16 campaign and he's showing no signs of slowing down.
Nov 18 - 11:56 PM

C.J. McCollum played 39 minutes against the Kings on Friday, adding one rebound, five assists, one block, four steals and two 3-pointers.

C.J. is a bad dude and one of the toughest to cover one-on-one with his array of hesitation moves. Even with Dame Lillard feasting, McCollum's usage rate is up this year while he's bumped up his efficiency. McCollum has also upped his treys, steals and blocks this season. He's currently in the top 10 for total fantasy value in standard leagues.
Nov 12 - 2:56 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 33 points on Tuesday vs. the Suns with seven assists, six rebounds, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He's in a zone right now and was coming off a career-high 37-point effort. McCollum and Damian Lillard (38) combined for 71 points in the win, marking the 4th time in their career that they each scored 30+ points. He was 11-of-18 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line and is still exceeding even our lofty expectations, returning first-round value in standard leagues.

C.J. McCollum could not be stopped during Sunday's 100-94 win over Memphis, popping off for 37 points, six 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 39 minutes.

McCollum went 13-of-23 from the field and 5-of-6 from the charity stripe in this one, and the points and triples both tied career-highs for the fourth-year guard. He went human torch mode during the fourth quarter, scoring 16 of his 37 points, and pumping out an insane usage rate of 45.4. Through the first seven games of the season, McCollum is rewarding his owners with top-25 value in standard 9-cat leagues, so his lofty ADP of 32.4 is definitely being justified.
Nov 6 - 6:31 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 24 points against the Suns on Wednesday with four rebounds, four assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

The reigning Most Improved Player has improved even more this season, averaging 20.8 points, 4.8 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.0 treys on a 26.1 usage rate and 56.4 true shooting percentage. McCollum is cruising along as a top-30 player so far and should be right around there all season. Last year was no fluke, obviously.
Nov 3 - 2:01 AM

C.J. McCollum filled the stat sheet against the Nuggets on Saturday, scoring 23 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, three blocks, three steals and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

That's just one rebound off his career high and it's the first time he's posted a 5x3 stat line. McCollum is one of the most creative scorers in the game and he's also going to be asked to run the offense more with Dame Lillard playing off the ball more. He should be one of the better shooting guards in fantasy hoops.
Oct 30 - 1:11 AM

C.J. McCollum hit 5-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 16 points, four rebounds, two assists and three steals in Thursday's 114-106 loss to the Clippers.

This is becoming quite a rivalry and the Clippers did a good job of keeping CJM in check tonight. He led the team in minutes and is going to be a mini-stud all season long. He should do more offensively in the next one.
Oct 28 - 1:57 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 25 points vs. the Jazz on Tuesday, shooting 8-of-16 from the field.

Damian Lillard grabbed the headlines with a 39-point effort, but McCollum looked phenomenal as well. He hit both of his 3-pointers, 7-of-7 from the line and added three assists, two rebounds and one steal. He certainly wasn't cheap in fantasy drafts this season, but if tonight was any indication, it looks like he was worth it.
Oct 26 - 12:34 AM

C.J. McCollum found his shooting stroke against the Clippers on Thursday, scoring 20 points with five rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

Before this game, McCollum made just 28.2 percent from the field in the preseason. The Blazers did add some depth to their perimeter, but it shouldn't affect C.J.'s playing time or his output. He was outstanding all season and turned in a tidy 56.9 true shooting percentage after the break. Last year's Most Improved Player could improve even more this season as an early-round pick.
Oct 14 - 1:37 AM

C.J. McCollum acknowledged that he's working to find the proper rhythm so far this preseason.

"Average,’’ McCollum said when asked to evaluate his preseason performances. "I haven’t really found a rhythm yet. It’s the preseason. It’s early.’’ He doesn't sound too worried about his performance, and we're not sounding any alarms, either. After the Blazers gave him over $100M this offseason, you should be drafting McCollum with confidence.

Oct 8 - 5:11 PM

C.J. McCollum is utilizing the offseason to work on his defense.

"I’m continuing to work on defense [with our assistant coaches]," he said. "I’m building more lower-body strength and core strength, continuing to gain more athleticism in order to help me on the defensive side of the ball. I want to get better on defense. I’m really trying work on my lateral movement and tracking down the ball on defense." McCollum is going to be a popular name on draft day, meaning you'll likely have to invest a second or third-round pick to make him a member of your roster.
