McCollum recorded 21 points (9-17 FG, 1-4 3 Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists and two rebounds over 36 minutes in Tuesday's 93-90 loss to the Bucks. Sure, you can pay up for James Harden, but McCollum is as reliable and consistent as they come when you're looking for a big stat line game after game. That's why he's one of the most popular shooting guards in DFS cash games. March has been no exception, as he's averaged 22.5 points per game and is shooting 49.2 percent from the floor across 11 contests. He's also drained 90.3 percent of his shots from the charity stripe this season and ranks sixth in the league in that category. You can start McCollum with confidence in all formats.
McCollum finished with 26 points (8-16 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 8-8 FT) with four rebounds, four assists and a steal over 39 minutes in Wednesday's 110-106 win against the Spurs. McCollum bounced back rather nicely from an off night Tuesday in New Orleans when he finished with just eight points while misfiring one eight of his 12 field-goal attempts. Wednesday's performance is why you stick with McCollum in fantasy leagues through thick and thin.
McCollum scored just eight points (4-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt) to go along with three rebounds and two assists across 30 minutes during Tuesday's 100-77 loss to the Pelicans. McCollum endured a miserable performance in this one, scoring in single-digits for the first time since the second week of the season as he failed to connect on a three-point effort or attempt even a single free throw. This dud came out of nowhere really, as McCollum had averaged 25.4 points and 2.9 treys per game over his previous seven contests. His excellent track record suggests he will bounce back in no time.
McCollum tallied a team-high 34 points (13-23 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go with six assists across 42 minutes in a 125-124 overtime loss to the Wizards on Saturday. The Wizards had no answers for the duo of McCollum and Damian Lillard, who both surpassed the 30-point mark in the same game for the seventh time this season. Though Jusuf Nurkic has developed into an effective third wheel in the Trail Blazers attack since joining the team, his arrival hasn't resulted in McCollum sacrificing any production. The 25-year-old is averaging 23.9 points, 3.4 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 2.6 three-pointers in 38.6 minutes per game while shooting 47.3 percent from the floor since the All-Star break.
McCollum poured in 23 points (8-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and three assists over 42 minutes in Thursday's 114-108 win over the Sixers. McCollum and backcourt mate Damian Lillard both eclipsed the 40-minute mark, and the former has now played at least 35 minutes in seven consecutive games. The fourth-year guard has gotten March off to a hot start, as he's surpassed the 20-point mark on three occasions and is tallying excellent 47.2 and 58.8 percent success rates from the field and three-point range, respectively. Even with Jusuf Nurkic rapidly increasing his involvement on the offensive end, McCollum is still sporting a robust 26.7 percent since the latter's arrival in Portland, taking no less than 14 shot attempts in any of the eight games that have transpired over that span.
