CJ McCollum is feeling himself on Twitter this NFL Sunday.
After the Trail Blazers guard watched his Cleveland Browns get off to their first winning record in six seasons following a 34-20 win over the Washington Football Team, he flipped the channel to watch the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys meet in Week 3.
McCollum, who recently called Russell Wilson, a “cheat code,” continued to sing Wilson’s praises after the Seahawks franchise quarterback aired a deep ball to a wide-open Tyler Lockett for a 43-yard touchdown in the first quarter.
Tyler Lockett had 5.7 yards of separation from the nearest defender (#23 Darian Thompson) when the pass from Russell Wilson arrived, the most yards of separation on a completion that traveled 40+ air yards over the past two seasons.— Next Gen Stats (@NextGenStats) September 27, 2020

McCollum knows greatness when he sees it and he wasted no time giving credit to DangeRuss.
Another week another Russ dime. Cowgirls in trouble 🤣— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) September 27, 2020
One can assume McCollum has a few Seahawks players on his fantasy team as well. He had some ideas on who Wilson should throw to next.
I really just want Russ to throw 5 touchdowns and have Lockett catch 3 and Carson get one 🤣— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) September 27, 2020
We’ll have to wait to see if CJ’s fantasy dreams come true.
