Texans WR Nico Collins was QB C.J. Stroud's "favorite target throughout the spring," ESPN's DJ Bien-Aime writes. Collins finished just 53rd among WRs in PPR points per game last year. But he took tangible steps forward from his 2021 rookie campaign in target share (13.4% to 20.1%) and yards per route (1.24 to 1.68). Collins is a candidate for another leap in year three. And Stroud should be a big boost to Houston's passing game. For more on Collins, check out 2023 Fantasy Football Sleepers.
