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.

Full line in Friday's win

March 15, 2019
Collins collected 12 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, four blocks, and two assists in 23 minutes during Friday's 122-110 win over the Pelicans.
Collins reached double figures in scoring for the first time since Jan. 30 while earning at least 20 minutes for the first time since Feb. 13. The recent addition of Enes Kanter has resulted in reduced playing time for Collins lately, but the young big is simply capable of at least a couple things Kanter struggles with (outside shooting and perimeter defense). It's clear that coach Terry Stotts is trying to keep Collins involved, but the 21-year-old sophomore is likely to continue contributing fairly minimally on most nights.

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.
