Landon Collins Fantasy Football News 2018

Giants S Landon Collins confirmed Wednesday that he needs a 2nd surgery on the right forearm he fractured late last season, according to Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com. Collins will reportedly need 6-8 weeks of recovery time, which should still allow him to start training camp on time. We'll keep an eye on the situation as we move into summer, but IDP owners needn't worry just yet.

Giants S Landon Collins suffered a right forearm fracture in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He didn't know as of Monday whether the injury will require surgery, but it obviously ends his 2017 season. Andrew Adams will likely start in Collins' place against Washington in Week 17.

Giants S Landon Collins is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He played through a "doubtful" tag in last Sunday's loss to the Eagles but perhaps shouldn't have. Collins made it through just 27% of the snaps before re-injuring the joint and leaving. Collins is too big a risk for most IDP leagues this week.

Giants S Landon Collins (ankle) is surprisingly active for today's game against the Eagles. He had been listed as doubtful after getting in just a limited practice on Thursday. Obviously not at 100%, Collins is a risk/reward IDP play today.

Giants S Landon Collins (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles. It would mark the 1st game Collins has missed in his 3-year career.

Giants S Landon Collins left Sunday's loss to the Cowboys early in the 4th quarter after spraining his left ankle. Collins left the stadium in a walking boot but said the injury doesn't appear to be serious. "It's better. It was throbbing when it happened, but other than that, I think it's real mild," Collins said afterward, according to NJ.com. "It's not too much of an end-of-season injury." The fact that just 3 games remain on a lost season for the Giants could affect his active status. We'll see how the Giants handle their star safety this week.

Giants S Landon Collins is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Broncos because of an ankle sprain. NJ.com reports that Collins has "vowed" to play in the game. We'll seek further updates on his expected status over the weekend.

Giants 3rd-round pick S Darian Thompson looks like the favorite to start next to S Landon Collins this season. According to Newsday, the pair "looked terrific working together in the spring and likely will start the preseason as the Giants' two starters." Thompson reportedly displayed the turnover-creating skills that helped produce 17 INTs in college. He's starting to look like the answer at free safety, which could allow 2015 second-round pick Collins to play in the box more. A truer SS role would better fit his strengths. The pair could help the defense as a whole, while Collins' altered role would likely enhance his IDP value. Both Giants safeties would be in consideration range in fantasy football drafts.

Giants S Landon Collins left Friday night's game with a knee injury. X-rays came back negative, according to multiple reports. We should find out the extent of the injury in the coming days. The rookie has become a popular IDP target, though we find him overrated based on recent numbers for Giants safeties.

The Giants traded up to the top spot in Round 2 for S Landon Collins on Friday night. Collins spent most of draft season as the top S on the board but wound up going after Damarious Randall joined the Packers. Collins should step right away into a defense that has moved on from all of last year's starting safeties: Antrel Rolle, Quintin Demps and Stevie Brown. Collins put up 103 tackles as a senior, snagged 5 INTs over his final 2 years and tallied 13 pass breakups over that span. He looks like a nice IDP prospect who might project to starter range in our 2015 IDP rankings.
