Higher 2022 REDRAFT Value vs. DYNASTY Value!

Nico Collins News

  • Nico Collins goes nuclear · Oct 1, 2023

    Nico Collins had seven catches for 168 yards and two touchdowns in Houston's upset win over Pittsburgh.

    Two weeks after setting a career high in receiving yards with 146, Collins put up this gem and has quickly established himself as a weekly starter in fantasy leagues in the process. Now with 428 receiving yards in his first four games this year, his ranking of WR49 is going to skyrocket this week. Simply put, the trio of CJ Stroud, Collins, and Tank Dell look legit.

  • Nico Collins solid again · Sep 17, 2023

    Texans receiver Nico Collins had seven catches for 146 yards and one touchdown in the Texans loss against Indianapolis.

    After last week's game where Collins caught six passes for 80 yards, many dynasty owners were eagerly anticipating today's contest to see just what he could do for an encore. In the end, they were rewarded with a dominant performance and one that will clearly put Collins on the map in dynasty leagues. While we may need to see one more big day before really getting excited, this is about as good as you could have hoped for. Collins is our WR59 and that's going to move way up this week.

  • Nico Collins leads all · Sep 11, 2023

    Nico Collins led all receivers and produced 80 yards on 6-of-11 receiving in the Texans loss to the Ravens in week one.

    While not a statistical explosion, it was Collins' second-best output in his three-year career. The Texans had little success on Sunday behind rookie C.J. Stroud who lofted 44 passes on the day. It's fair to assume the big receiver benefitted from a heavier passing attack than would otherwise be the case. The third-year player lacks upside dynamic but may develop into a trustworthy target for the developing Texans, potentially becoming a last-flex consideration in fantasy when bye weeks arrive. Collins is listed as DLF's WR60.

  • Nico Collins a favorite · Jul 7, 2023

    Nico Collins has been C.J. Stroud's favorite target this offseason

    Head coach DeMeco Ryans also said Collins "probably has the best hands on the team." The third-year receiver is set to assume the WR1 role for the Texans though veteran Robert Woods, now 31, is still projected as a starter and could operate as the top option. As for Collins, he's yet to surpass 500 yards receiving in his two seasons and only has a combined three touchdowns. But still young (24) and with good size (6'4/215), there's reason to remain optimistic that if the pair can continue their connection into the offseason, Collins could break out in his third season. Listed as DLF's WR63, there's equal amounts of optimism and doubt about Collins' potential in 2023 and beyond.

  • Nico Collins could be Julio Jones? · Jun 12, 2023

    Texans new offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik has receiver Nico Collins watching clips of Julio Jones

    The new scheme is the same as 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan's and provides Collins a role similar to the one Jones had from his time with the Falcons. The Texans believe Collins profiles similarly to Jones. As said in the article, it's "a lofty comparison" but entering his third year, Collins is now the WR1 in the offense with the ultra-accurate rookie C.J. Stroud under center. Collins has only produced 927 yards and three touchdowns across two seasons but with extremely inconsistent quarterback play. Anything less than a career year in 2023 would be a significant disappointment. Nico Collins is found as DLF's WR63 and is a sneaky value-on acquisition at only 24 years of age.
