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.

Washington S Landon Collins took part in practice this week, marking his return to the field following shoulder surgery. HC Jay Gruden told the Washington Post that the team is "still very cautious" with its key free-agent signing but that Collins is taking part in 7-on-7 drills and that they hope to have no limitations by training camp.

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.
