New Orleans Pelicans DFS Notes

C.J. McCollum dropped a game-high 32 points vs. the Suns on Friday with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two triples in 35 minutes. The trade from Portland may have saved his fantasy season, as the Blazers are going to be aggressively tanking down the stretch while the Pelicans make a push for a play-in spot. McCollum has been on fire too, posting first-round value over his last five games with 31.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.2 dimes, 1.4 steals and 3.4 triples.

Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

LeBron James (left knee soreness/effusion) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Pelicans. LeBron James’ questionable tag is the new Anthony Davis probable tag -- he always has one. The team is just being cautious with their star and there’s no reason LeBron wouldn’t suit up tomorrow in an attempt to get his team back on track.
