One of the biggest names moved at the trade deadline was CJ McCollum going from Portland to the Pelicans. The 30-year-old hasn’t disappointed in his new digs as his numbers are up across the board and he’s helped New Orleans get back into the race for a play-in spot. He and Brandon Ingram have formed a dynamic scoring duo, but is making that pair an NBA DFS stack for Tuesday a winning strategy for your daily Fantasy basketball lineups?
New Orleans takes on Memphis tonight and the two teams played just three weeks ago. In that game, McCollum and Ingram combined for 48 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, as Ja Morant did not suit up for the other side.
