I don't understand why many are talking about Collins as a "sleeper" in 2021. Do we really think this offense is going to produce two fantasy-relevant wide receivers? Somehow, Collins went from sleeper in the NFL Draft, to sleeper on a bad football team. You can like him in dynasty, that's fine, but in 2021, it's hard to see him reaching 80-plus targets if Brandin Cooks is healthy. Even outside of Cooks, the team decided to pay Andre Roberts $2.6 million, Conley $1.5 million, Chris Moore $1.3 million, and then traded for Anthony Miller. This just reeks of a situation to avoid in fantasy. Heck, even if Deshaun Watson were starting (which he's not), you'd have trouble projecting the target distribution for these receivers, though he would give Collins more of that "sleeper" appeal. I'm okay letting someone else take a shot on a non-Cooks receiver.
