Profile: At various points throughout the minors, Tyler Collins flashed a little bit of everything. His 18-homer, 12-steal, .263 campaign in Triple-A in 2014 exemplifies the close-but-not-quite offensive profile a fantasy owner might use to justify a sleeper pick. At 26, though, the speed has already waned, and the power is modest at best - certainly not enough to justify a .250 average and .300 OBP. He's a perfectly average major league hitter, making him a decidedly inadequate fantasy asset. It doesn't mean he couldn't contribute in a platoon for an AL-only league, which is precisely what he figures to do as the strong side of the Tigers' center field platoon. There's just not much upside here, so any reliance on Collins should be done strategically (i.e. only against righties in deeper formats). (Alex Chamberlain)

The Quick Opinion: Collins is the personification of the league-average batting line, which makes for a decent real baseball player but a lackluster fantasy asset. He could generate value when used strategically in a platoon in AL-only leagues, but he will otherwise bear little fruit.
