Alex Collins Fantasy Football News 2019

The Ravens waived RB Alex Collins Friday, hours after he was arrested following a car crash in Maryland. We have yet to see details on the specific charges facing Collins, but Baltimore likely didn't need much motivation to move on from the veteran. Collins totaled just 114 carries and 15 receptions over 10 games before a foot injury landed him on IR. Gus Edwards then took over the backfield, and Kenneth Dixon grew his role late in the year. We'll see whether the Ravens add another piece or 2 this offseason. And we'll see whether Collins gets a shot at returning to fantasy relevance.

The Ravens have placed RB Alex Collins on IR with the foot injury that cost him last week's game. He reportedly won't need surgery. The team is also activating RB Kenneth Dixon from IR. He's been out since suffering a knee injury back in Week 1 but could see time Sunday against the Falcons, especially with RB Gus Edwards entering the game questionable. We expect Edwards to play, especially after he finished the week with a full practice. Dixon is a pickup option for many leagues, though, as an Edwards handcuff or Collins replacement. Buck Allen remains in the mix as well.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Falcons. He didn't practice Wednesday, was limited Thursday and a full-go on Friday. So he should be fine for Sunday's game. We'll get his official status by noon ET. RB Alex Collins (foot) is also listed as questionable after going through the same practice routine as Edwards. We'll see if he's active on Sunday, but Collins isn't a fantasy option if Edwards plays.

Ravens RB Gus Edwards (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. Ditto for RB Alex Collins (foot). Edwards is on track to again serve as Baltimore's lead ball-carrier in Atlanta this weekend.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. So it looks like it was the foot that kept him out of last weekend's game against the Raiders -- rather than being a healthy scratch. We'll see if Collins is ready for Sunday's game in Atlanta, but he's lost the lead job to Gus Edwards.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) is active for today’s game against the Steelers. He put in a full practice on Friday, and we never heard any concern about his status. Collins is a low-end RB2 in this tough matchup.

Ravens RB Alex Collins is expected to play through his questionable tag against the Steelers today, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Collins missed Thursday's practice with foot soreness but returned to full participation Friday. He should be OK for planned usage in fantasy lineups.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Steelers. After sitting out on Thursday, he put in a full practice on Friday. So Collins should play on Sunday. But the foot injury adds risk to what was already a tough matchup.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) was held out of Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday. He went through this routine back in Week 5 before playing on Sunday, so it's possible this was just a rest day. We'll get another update tomorrow. Baltimore would be left with Buck Allen, Gus Edwards and the newly acquired Ty Montgomery if Collins can't go.

The Packers have traded RB Ty Montgomery to the Ravens for a 2020 7th-round pick -- or, basically, a bag of balls. Montgomery, of course, just cost Green Bay a chance to come back and beat the Rams by fumbling on a kickoff return. He hasn't been a big part of the offense this year, averaging just 3.7 carries and 3.3 targets per game. His departure certainly doesn't hurt RB Aaron Jones' rest-of-season outlook, though. In Baltimore, Montgomery figures to step into a similar change-of-pace, pass-catching role. He'll steal a handful of looks from Alex Collins and Buck Allen but is unlikely to emerge as a fantasy asset.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (knee) will play against the Browns this weekend, HC John Harbaugh said Friday. Collins sat out Thursday’s practice as a precaution but was a full-go Friday. He’s a low-end RB2 vs. a solid Cleveland defense.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero hears that Ravens RB Alex Collins' absence on Thursday was "precautionary." The team wants Collins "ready to rip" vs. the Browns this weekend. It sounds like Collins will be safe to get into fantasy lineups as long as he returns to practice Friday.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (knee) missed Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday. We don't have any other details, but it looks like Collins might have been injured in Wednesday's workout. We'll look for updates and see if Collins is able to get back on the field tomorrow. His absence would leave Buck Allen as Baltimore's lead back.

The Ravens have placed RB Kenneth Dixon on IR with the knee injury he suffered in Sunday's season opener. It's unclear if he's a candidate to return in 8 weeks, but he's not worth stashing on any redraft rosters. Baltimore moves forward with Alex Collins in the lead role and Buck Allen handling pass-catching duties.

Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon injured his knee late in Sunday's win over the Bills, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. We don't have any other details yet, but Zrebiec adds that "the expectation is he'll miss some time." Dixon has been unable to stay healthy as a pro and isn't worth a roster spot in redraft leagues. His absence leaves Alex Collins and Buck Allen as Baltimore's healthy RBs.

The forecast for today's Bills-Ravens game calls for a 100% chance of rain and 15 mph winds with gusts up to 21 mph. This had the makings of a low-scoring, run-heavy game anyways, and this weather only makes that more likely. Try to avoid the Bills passing game. Ravens WRs Michael Crabtree and John Brown are still fine WR3s.

Ravens RB Alex Collins was dealing with a "significant" migraine that prevented him from doing post-game interviews, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. It's the 1st we've heard of a migraine problem for Collins, but it'll be worth monitoring going forward. We've seen the issue cost players games -- most recently with Giants WR Sterling Shepard.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (calf) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so the calf shouldn’t be an issue. Collins is safe to get into fantasy lineups.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (calf) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday — and we’ve heard nothing to suggest that the calf is a concern. Go ahead and keep Collins penciled into fantasy lineups. Just check back Sunday to make sure he’s active.

Ravens RB Alex Collins (calf) returned to practice on Thursday. It looks like his absence yesterday was just a day off after Monday night's win. Collins should be ready to go as Baltimore's lead back vs. the Lions this weekend.
