RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Collins projects to be the starting fullback for the Lions. His primary job will be to open running lanes for Reggie Bush and Joique Bell.
Collins, who scored four touchdowns in 2011, finished the 2012 season with 14 catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns. He did not receive a carry all year. While he may yet steal a few scores as the Saints' starting fullback, he holds little value for fantasy purposes given his infrequent touches.
Last year, Collins vultured four touchdowns, all from short range, despite seeing a mere 15 touches on the season. While he is expected to start at fullback again for the Saints, Collins is merely a torn in the side of fantasy owners of other Saint offenses weapons, and is not ownable himself in almost all formats given his lack of consistent usage.
Collins will split time at fullback with Korey Hall.
Collins was a tight end in his college days, but transitioned to fullback in the NFL and bounced from team to team in his rookie season. He’ll compete for a backup job in Kansas City, but you’ll rarely hear his name on Sundays.
