Yes, Houston's target tree has another branch that didn't exist last year (Stefon Diggs). Is that worrisome for Collins? Sure, but this is a bet on talent. Drawing volume is a reflection of the talent that Collins has in spades. I'm not willing to back off drafting him and Tank Dell with the arrival of a veteran wide receiver that widely sunk fantasy teams down the stretch last year. In 2023, Collins ranked 12th in targets per route run, second in YPRR, seventh in receiving yards per game, and fifth in FD/RR. Everything in his profile suggests he is an alpha-level talent in the prime of his career, tied to one of the best young quarterbacks in the game.

Fantasy Impact

Collins has been working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery. He enters this season off a three-year extension where he'll look to build off his success last season. Despite the offseason addition of Stefon Diggs, Collins still figures to be the top target in the Texans passing game.
