Alex Collins Was a Solid Contributor in Fantasy

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Alex Collins had a decent season as a solid fantasy starter. He was the #203 ranked fantasy player this season and the #39 RB. His value would have been slightly higher if he had played more games. Based on average fantasy points he was the #33 RB. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 3 games he averaged 10.8 fantasy points which was higher than his start (9.8 FP) and his ending average (8.2 FP). He averaged 9.5 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 17 fantasy points with a floor of 5 points.
