Zaven Collins is a player that is very similar to Minnesota's Anthony Barr. Like Barr, Collins can do a little of everything-- plug run fits, rush the quarterback, or drop into coverage. The question is, will the Cardinals defensive coaching staff use him optimally for fantasy scoring? The usage of Isaiah Simmons last year suggests that Cardinals GM Steve Kein may not be on the same page with his coaches. An encouraging development is that the Cardinals are shopping Jordan Hicks, signaling their determination to use Collins from the get-go. If Collins can log 1,000 defensive snaps this year, he could easily jump into the LB2 conversation.
