Nico Collins Slated to Return from Calf Injury

That’s the good news. The bad news: Houston faces a stifling Browns defense on Sunday and enters the game with Case Keenum, not C.J. Stroud, under center. There’s no precedent, no history to fall back on between Keenum and Collins, so just what the target distribution looks like with Collins back on the field is anyone’s guess. That being said, Collins also is no slouch and should be able to earn targets regardless of the matchup in a given week, especially with his primary target competition being only Noah Brown. The Texans have leaned heavily on Devin Singletary and the ground game in the past few weeks, so there’s a chance that the overall opportunity for Collins could be limited – but it’s unlikely that the Browns run away with this one, and the game script should be largely competitive all game. He’s a mid-high WR3 this week and shouldn’t be benched unless you have a player that is light years ahead of him in terms of value.
