  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins went bonkers in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers, grabbing a career high 25 rebounds to go with 20 points (8-of-15 FG), six assists and a block in 36 minutes of action.

    Collins’ sophomore campaign was largely a success. He essentially matched his ADP in both 9 and 8-cat leagues, finishing at top-50 value on the season with averages of 19.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.6 blocks on .560 shooting from the field. It’s worth noting that while he surprisingly under-performed at accumulating defensive stats this season, he managed to increase his blocks per game up to 1.4 since the beginning of March. We think it’s safer to assume that he’ll be closer to that number next season than he will be to his paltry 0.6 season average.

    John Collins (rest) will sit out in Sunday's game vs. the Bucks.

    He'll join Trae Young (rest) on the bench for the same reason, as the Hawks have far more to gain by losing this one rather than competing. Keep an eye on Collins to see if this happens again before the season ends. With Atlanta's stars ruled out, and Kevin Huerter (back) still questionable, there should be a lot of usage to go around for this Hawks team.

    John Collins (load management) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bucks.

    With the Hawks not playing for anything anymore, resting their young stars may be the norm until the end of the season in order to keep them fresh heading into next season. On the bright side, Collins has been stepping up on his defense since March posting 1.5 blocks a game and we hope that continues to the following year.

    John Collins scored 25 points on 10-of-18 shooting while adding eight rebounds, an assist, a steal, a 3-pointer and two blocks against the Sixers on Wednesday.

    Collins missed the last game for load management and he came into tonight firing. The blocks have started to roll in which was a huge concern earlier this season so it's great to see him get his footing back on defense. He averaged 0.4 blocks from November until the end of February and since March he's averaged 1.5 swats a game.

    John Collins (load management) will play Wednesday against the Sixers.

    With the Hawks clearly out of the playoffs, they have decided to let their big names rest on back-to-back nights. Collins took Tuesday night off but will return Wednesday and should provide a floor of top-50 value with plenty of upside. He will have more opportunity as Joel Embiid is out for the Sixers.

    John Collins (load management) is officially probable for Wednesday against the Sixers.

    Collins sat out the front end of Atlanta's B2B on Tuesday night and is fully expected to return tonight. He's safe to pencil into lineups and gets a break with Joel Embiid missing this one.

    John Collins took the night off on Tuesday but he is expected to return to the court on Wednesday when the Hawks host the Sixers.

    Alex Len and Deyonta Davis were the biggest beneficiaries from Collins’ absence on Tuesday but Collins should get plenty of minutes tonight. He has been averaging 1.5 blocks in the last month (compared to 0.6 for the year) boosting his value to top-35 in standard leagues as he is finishing off the year strong.

    The Hawks are listing John Collins (load management) as out for Tuesday's tilt against the Spurs.

    The Hawks frontcourt was already depleted prior to this, while Taurean Prince (foot) is doubtful to suit up as well. DeAndre' Bembry, Justin Anderson, Vince Carter and Deyonta Davis are all in contention to start and get heavy minutes, while Trae Young and Alex Len should see huge usage boosts. This is a nice DFS team to target for cheap plays on a small slate.

    John Collins (load management) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

    Collins will get the night off with the Hawks waving the white flag. It'll be a skeleton crew tomorrow night, and you can give hearty boosts to DeAndre' Bembry, Justin Anderson, Vince Carter and Deyonta Davis as fantasy options with so many regulars out of Atlanta's lineup.

    John Collins dropped 23 points and 12 rebounds to go along with three blocks, four assists and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes in a win against the Bucks.

    Collins had recently seen a dip in his rebounding due to more 3-point attempts, but he had both in this one. With Dewayne Dedmon out for the season, Collins should continue to be productive as the season winds down.

    John Collins scored 20 points (1-of-5 from distance) but only grabbed two rebounds, three assists and two blocks in Friday’s home loss to the Blazers.

    Collins’ rebounding has really fallen off lately with just 6.0 over his last three games as he’s taken to attempting more 3-pointers. Alex Len was a DND-CD.

    John Collins posted 13 points and nine rebounds against the Sixers on Saturday night but also came through with a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Collins' defensive numbers have lagged for much of the season and it's nice to see him go on a bit of a run lately, even if it's at the expense of his usually-gaudy numbers in scoring and rebounding. Although he's averaging only 0.6 blocks on the season, Collins has at least one swat in seven of his last nine and 1.3 per game in the month of March. Here's hoping it keeps up over the season's final handful of games.

    John Collins fouled out of Thursday's win over the Jazz, delivering a fairly quiet night of nine points, eight rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

    Collins struggled with a burly Utah frontcourt, and he won't be the last guy with that issue. Fantasy owners can take some solace in the fact that he came through with defensive numbers tonight. That's been the only weak spot in Collins' game so far and we're hoping he starts posting numbers more in line with his rookie season going into next year. He's already a top-40 guy with disappointing steals and blocks totals.
