  • Texans' Nico Collins: Outperforms Cooks again

    Collins caught two of four targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss to Chicago in Week 3. The second-year wideout was the second-leading receiver in terms of yards behind Chris Moore (63), and for the second straight week he produced more yardage than No. 1 WR Brandin Cooks (22). Collins had one of the four plays in the passing game that gained more than 20 yards, and he has eight catches on 16 targets for 125 yards (15.6 YPC) through three games.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Team-leading yardage total in loss

    Collins brought in four of nine targets for 58 yards in the Texans' 16-9 loss to the Broncos on Sunday. Collins paced the Texans in receiving yardage while sharing the team lead in receptions with Brandin Cooks. The numbers, including the target share, was a notable improvement from Week 1 for Collins, who posted a 2-26-0 line on just three targets in the tie with the Colts. Collins certainly has the talent and opportunity to grow along with Mills in the Texans offense, and he'll look to carry over his Week 2 momentum into a Week 3 road battle versus the Bears next Sunday.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Two catches in Week 1

    Collins brought in two of three targets for 26 yards in the Texans' 20-20 overtime tie with the Colts on Sunday. Collins drew the start alongside Brandin Cooks, but he was able to deliver only modest numbers overall. The second-year wideout has the talent to make an impact in the offense over the course of the season while developing alongside fellow sophomore Davis Mills, but a Week 2 surge may be an uphill battle with a road matchup against the Broncos on tap next Sunday.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Week 1 Adds (WR Preview)

    Collins was under-drafted all offseason, so it's no surprise that he's under-rostered in September. He's the clear No. 2 option for a Texans team that should be chasing the score in Week 1. He ranks as a borderline No. 3 wide receiver for me and a good flex in full PPR leagues where you start three wide receivers.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Week 1 Waiver Priority List

    Collins is one of my favorite sleepers this season, and he should be the starter all year opposite Brandin Cooks. The Texans need playmakers, and Collins should become a favorite target for Davis Mills. Last year, in the final five games for Houston when Mills started, Collins had three outings with at least five targets, and he had two games with at least 11 PPR points. That should be Collins' floor most weeks, and he's worth at least 5-10 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Draws PI to set up TD

    Collins didn't catch his only target in Thursday's 17-0 preseason win over the 49ers. Collins also drew a pass interference penalty on Houston's opening drive to set up Dameon Pierce's one-yard touchdown run. The second-year wide receiver was thrown to once more on Houston's second drive but had a quiet night in a dress rehearsal game that saw starting quarterback Davis Mills play into the second half. Collins should have opportunities to contribute as the leading candidate to start at wide receiver opposite Brandin Cooks, but Houston's third-round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft has yet to establish himself as a consistent playmaker in the NFL.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Paces pass catchers in win

    Collins brought in four of six targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' 24-20 preseason win over the Rams on Friday night. He also committed a fumble recovered by Houston. The second-year wideout hauled in an 18-yard scoring grab from the arm of Davis Mills with one second remaining in the first half to give Houston its only points over the first two quarters. Collins is projected to fill the No. 2 receiver role alongside top target Brandin Cooks, and Friday's showing was a particularly welcome sight after he hadn't logged so much as a single target in the exhibition opener versus the Saints.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Not targeted Saturday

    Collins was not targeted in Saturday's 17-13 preseason win over the Saints. Collins had a chance to serve as the No. 1 wide receiver with the Texans' first-team offense, as veteran Brandin Cooks didn't suit up for the preseason opener, but the former ultimately played sparingly as Houston opened the contest with back-to-back three and outs. Collins figures to see additional run with the starters when the Texans travel to Los Angeles for another preseason tilt against the Rams on Friday.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Shows progress in OTAs

    Texans quarterback Davis Mills mentioned Collins as a player that stood out during organized team activities, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports. The quarterback made note of Collins' "grasp of the offense." Although the Texans are expected to lean on the running game in 2022, their pass catchers are considered the offense's strength, led by Brandin Cooks and Collins. Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reported the second-year wideout looked much stronger within his 6-foot-4 frame. He spent a portion of the offseason working with Mills and other members of the offense in Atlanta, per Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site. The goal of the workouts was for young receivers like Collins and tight end Brevin Jordan to work on timing and chemistry with Mills. "It's going to be important that Nico and Brevin and some of the other young pass receiving guys that we have work together with our quarterback to develop more of a sense of continuity and that level of trust that we are going to need to be able to play fast and anticipate our throws and attack our opponents with rhythm and timing in our passing game," offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said. Collins had 33 catches for 446 yards and one touchdown in 2021.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Works as deep threat

    Collins recorded three receptions on eight targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 28-25 loss to the Titans. Collins stepped into an expanded role due to the absence of Chris Conley (knee) and an early departure for Brandin Cooks (knee). He wasn't particularly efficient in terms of his catch rate, though he still managed 8.4 yards per target. Each of Collins' receptions was impressive, as he showed the ability to beat the Titans' secondary deep over the middle, deep down the sideline and also in contested situations. Though his rookie season didn't end with gaudy totals, Collins ended the season having recorded multiple receptions in each of his last five games. With Conley and Danny Amendola set to hit free agency, Collins could be in for a second-year jump in production.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Gains 35 yards in loss

    Collins had two receptions (five targets) for 35 yards in Sunday's 23-7 loss to San Francisco. Brandin Cooks drew the majority of Davis Mills' attention, leaving scraps for Collins and the rest of the Texans' thin receiving corps. The 2021 third-round pick remained second in the wide receiver pecking order, finishing third in targets behind Cooks (11) and Rex Burkhead (six). Collins doesn't receive enough volume in this offense to warrant attention from fantasy managers heading into a Week 18 matchup against the Titans.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Heightened role likely in Week 16

    Texans offensive coordinator Tim Kelly said Thursday that Collins will likely assume a more prominent role in the Houston passing attack Sunday against the Chargers while Brandin Cooks (illness) is on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports. Cooks wasn't able to clear the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocols in advance of the Week 16 contest, while Danny Amendola (knee) was activated from injured reserve but will be inactive Sunday. That leaves Houston with few established options at receiver heading into the game, with Collins presumably the top candidate to serve as the Texans' de facto No. 1 receiver. Collins demonstrated a rapport with Davis Mills in the Week 14 loss to Seattle (five receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown), but the rookie wideout dropped down to four targets in the Week 15 win over the Jaguars while the Texans leaned more heavily on the ground game. Assuming the favored Chargers are able to sit on a lead for most of the day, the Texans will be forced into catchup mode, potentially making Collins a sneaky play in fantasy playoff matchups.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Limited by thigh injury

    Collins practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday due to a thigh injury. Collins has spent time on injured reserve this season due to a shoulder injury and also had practice limitations due to foot and hip issues. Despite it all, he's played in seven straight games, logging 16 catches (on 26 targets) for 189 yards and no touchdowns during that stretch. Assuming he puts the current health concern behind him, Collins will continue to operate behind Brandin Cooks and alongside Chris Conley at wide receiver.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Two catches in Week 12

    Collins (hip) caught two of five targets for 28 yards in Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Jets. Collins has topped the 50-yard mark only once, and the rookie third-round pick is still searching for his first career touchdown. He'll continue to play a starting role in Houston's low-octane passing attack in Week 13 against the Colts.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Good to go Sunday

    Collins (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets. Collins' availability for Week 12 looked to be in peril after he was added to the injury report Friday with a hip issue that rendered him questionable for the contest, but the Texans are evidently confident enough in his health to have him suit up Sunday. Since returning Week 6 from a three-game stint on injured reserve, Collins has had a regular role in three-receiver sets for the Texans, playing no fewer than 57 percent of the offensive snaps in any of his five appearances. The solid role has yet to translate into major fantasy production, however, as Collins has put together a 14-161-0 receiving line on 20 targets during that stretch.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Trio of grabs in loss

    Collins secured all three targets for 25 yards in the Texans' 17-9 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. The rookie turned in an underwhelming performance following a career-best four-catch, 55-yard effort in Week 8 against the Rams. Collins does have multiple grabs in four straight contests, and perhaps the talented rookie will be able to progressively build up his production the longer he gets a chance to work with a capable veteran in Tyrod Taylor.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Suiting up Sunday

    Collins (foot) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Collins, who was a limited practice participant both Thursday and Friday, will give it a go Sunday and look to build off the four catches (on six targets) and 44 yards he logged in a Week 6 loss to the Colts. Also in the Texans' WR mix Sunday will be top option Brandin Cooks, slot man Danny Amendola, Chris Conley and Chris Moore. With Davis Mills drawing another start at QB for Houston versus 6-0 Arizona, however, Collins profiles as a hit-or-miss fantasy lineup option in Week 7.

  • Texans' Nico Collins: Set to make return

    Collins (shoulder) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. It's a bit surprising to see Collins activated so soon given he was just designated to practice earlier this week. As a result, Saturday's roster move has to be a positive sign regarding his health moving forward. The 2021 third-round pick was a popular sleeper entering the year given the lack of notable starting receivers opposite Brandin Cooks. That hasn't changed in Collins' absence, though the switch to Davis Mills might complicate things somewhat given the two theoretically haven't had much time to practice with one another. At the very least, the 6-foot-4 target is worth a speculative add in deeper formats given his potential in an offense that is still sorely lacking a second quality pass catcher.
