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.
New Washington S Landon Collins doesn't seem to think his December shoulder surgery will be an issue for the coming season. "I'm way ahead of it," Collins told The Washington Times, when asked about his recovery and rehab. "It's definitely on schedule." The big contract certainly seems to indicate the team isn't worried. Barring some training camp setback, expect to find Collins near the top of our 2019 DB rankings.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Washington has reached a 6-year, $84 million agreement with S Landon Collins, including $45 million guaranteed over the 1st 3 years. That's a record for annual average and guaranteed money at the position. Collins should certainly have a shot to continue ranking among the top IDP options in his new home. The Giants, meanwhile, gain a significant hole at the position, behind a shaky LB corps.
The Giants have informed S Landon Collins that they won't give him the franchise tag, meaning he'll reach unrestricted free agency. If the team finds the franchise number too high, it seems unlikely New York will reach a long-term deal with the star safety. Collins should remain a strong IDP factor in just about any landing spot. We'll be interested to see where he goes.
ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that Giants S Landon Collins is headed to IR with a shoulder injury that will require surgery. That leaves an already-weak defense without arguably its best player for the final 4 games. It also leaves IDP owners without a top-5 fantasy DB. Michael Thomas looks like the fill-in but would make for a risky lineup replacement in Week 14. We'll see if he gives us a performance that points to usability over the final 2 weeks of most fantasy seasons.
Giants S Landon Collins suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Bears and will miss next Sunday's visit to Washington, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The report gives no specifics on the injury so far, adding that the team will "evaluate" it "going forward." Collins' absence is bad news for the Giants' team D in an upside matchup with Mark Sanchez and a Washington offense ravaged by injury. It's good news, however, for Washington TE Jordan Reed.
