Jamie Collins Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The Patriots on Wednesday reached a deal with free-agent LB Jamie Collins. That report came immediately after news of New England trading CB Stephon Gilmore to the Panthers, so the 2 sides clearly had already worked out the veteran's return. We'll see just how much playing time awaits Collins in a crowded LB corps. And we'll wait to see that before sticking him into IDP lineups. The secondary, meanwhile, can continue with players in their existing roles now that no Gilmore return from the PUP looms.

The Lions have released LB Jamie Collins. The team tried to trade him, but teams were likely scared off by the big contract. The veteran will now be free to sign with whomever, and will likely find a suitor. We'll see if he can recapture IDP value.

Lions EDGE Trey Flowers (shoulder, knee), DL Michael Brockers (shoulder) and EDGE Romeo Okwara (shoulder) are all questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Flowers missed practice all week and probably shouldn't be in IDP lineups even if he plays. Okwara and Brockers each put in limited practices all week. We'll update the status on all 3 Sunday morning. Detroit has already ruled out LB Jamie Collins after confirming that they're trying to trade the veteran. That should clear the way for rookie LB Derrick Barnes to get his 1st start, though we'd like to see the size of his role before considering him for IDP lineups.

Lions HC Dan Campbell confirmed Thursday reports that the team is trying to trade LB Jamie Collins. That makes sense as Detroit tries to go younger at the position. The Lions reportedly plan to increase playing time for rookie LB Derrick Barnes beginning this week. Alex Anzalone still looks like the best bet for snaps for the time being, though we'll see just how much Detroit is looking to change things up. No Lions LB is especially attractive for IDP use right now. Collins could be a low-cost upside option in a new setting.
