Atlanta Hawks PF/C John Collins will return from his 25-game PED suspension Monday night vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Collins will be more than welcomed back by the Hawks, who went 4-21 without the big man in the lineup for 25 games. Collins is expected to return to the starting lineup and won’t have a minutes restriction, so if you’ve got him in season-long, fire away. As for DFS, Collins is $7,600 and this is a decent matchup vs. the Cavaliers. I wouldn’t mind playing Collins in GPPs as a leverage play. Not many casual users will realize that he’s back from suspension. I don’t think this impacts Trae Young ($11,200) much in terms of usage, but Young’s price is stupid high on this slate.
