2018 Fantasy Outlook
Collins’ rookie season numbers (4.4 points and 3.3 rebounds) were nothing to write home about for a first-round pick, but given the players ahead of him in the frontcourt, it’s not necessarily surprising he was eased into action to the tune of a modest 15.8 minutes per contest. The seven-footer then had a chance to get some extra development time in the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 23.7 minutes across six games despite dealing with a broken nose and an ankle sprain. Looking ahead to the coming season, Collins still has an uphill battle for playing time due to the presence of Jusuf Nurkic and Al-Farouq Aminu ahead of him on the depth chart. However, given his potential and first-round pedigree, the Trail Blazers are likely to prioritize Collins’ playing time over that of veteran Meyers Leonard, who presently slots alongside him behind Nurkic.

Solid off bench in loss

May 21, 2019
Collins posted 10 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and one block across 11 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 119-117 overtime loss to the Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals Monday.
ANALYSIS
Collins wrapped up a solid postseason with his fifth double-digit scoring effort of the playoffs. The second-year big did see a drop in playing time after averaging 21.1 minutes in the semifinal round, as coach Terry Stotts opted to shift Meyers Leonard into the starting five after bumping Enes Kanter down to the second unit. Nevertheless, Collins showed solid improvement in multiple categories during his sophomore campaign, laying the foundation for what could be an even better third season in 2019-20.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Selected with the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Collins joins the Trail Blazers as an athletic big man with great size at 6-foot-11. He's also a capable floor spacer, which is especially important in today's NBA landscape, shooting 65 percent from the field and 47 percent from the three-point line in his lone season at Gonzaga. However, plenty of questions arise when looking at his college production. Collins played in a smaller conference with Gonzaga and also averaged just 17.2 minutes per contest, so he'll likely be a little behind in his transition to playing against some of the best players in the world. That could mean a developmental year is in store for Collins, which should keep him off the radar in the majority of Fantasy formats. The Trail Blazers already have a new and improved Jusuf Nurkic at center, so at best, Collins could settle into a backup role if he demonstrates during training camp and the preseason that he can play against NBA talent. Still, he'll likely be stuck with just a few spot minutes, battling with the likes of Ed Davis and Noah Vonleh for playing time off the bench.
