Summary

Collins is one of the rare cases of a strong side linebacker in a 4-3 scheme that has strong fantasy value. Most teams take a linebacker off the field on passing downs to add a defensive back; often that is the strong side backer. The Browns find themselves in a somewhat unique situation of having three players at the second level that can stay on the field in what would be nickel situations for other teams. Collins is a multi-dimensional threat in that he can cover pass catchers with success on one play then get to the quarterback for a sack on the next. All while being an excellent run defender as well. When the Browns do pull one of the linebackers it will probably be Collins, or at least it was last season. In the five full games he played before landing on IR with an MCL injury, Collins played about 92% of the defensive snaps. In those games he was on pace for roughly 70 tackles, 29 assists and double digit big plays (sacks or turnovers). At worst he should be a quality third starter for IDP owners in 2018. (June 28)
