Zach Collins suffered a left shoulder dislocation just three games into the 2019-20 season, cutting short what was supposed to be a breakout campaign.
Collins was only a bit part over his first two seasons in the league but the Blazers had no reservations about making him the starting power forward in his third year. He's the sort of player that fantasy GMs tend to covet — a young big who can block shots and knock down 3-pointers. Collins did manage to put up 1.0 threes and 0.7 blocks in 28.8 mpg before getting hurt, but that's simply not enough of a sample to conclude anything meaningful. He finished with top-200/250 (8/9-cat) per-game value, and we'll have to wait and see if another hype train forms heading into next season's drafts. His performance in the Orlando games could have a heavy hand in determining next year's ADP.
