Cleveland.com reports that the Browns expect to start LB Jamie Collins Sunday against Dallas after acquiring him from the Patriots on Monday. DC Ray Horton reportedly plans to keep him on the field for most of the snaps as well, specifically saying: "We're going to ask a lot of him and obviously see what he can handle, but so far, I have been really impressed with his smarts and his savvy and athleticism on the field and really off the field, too, of just learning something and not hesitating to translate it in his mind." Collins carries some risk by virtue of his relatively unknown role, but he has showed us all his cross-category upside. This is probably a chance worth taking for most IDP owners who have counted on Collins as a regular starter to this point. Expect Collins to take the place of veteran ILB Demario Davis and play next to Christian Kirksey.
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 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.
Lions LB Jamie Collins (neck) is inactive for the 2nd straight game today against the Vikings. Without Collins last week, Jahlani Tavai led the LBs in playing time at 81%, with Jarrad Davis following at 51% and Reggie Ragland 3rd at 49%. Davis led the group with 9 tackles (though just 4 of those solos). This isn't a situation worth targeting for IDP lineups.
Lions LB Jamie Collins (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. After missing Week 16, he put in just a single limited practice Friday. He doesn't look like a good bet for this game. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
