Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 17 vs SF (7 / 55 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Collins did not set the world on fire; it just seemed like it in comparison to Thomas Rawls. Even though several of his carries were in garbage time, he looked better than Rawls, period. He showed better speed burst and acceleration out of the backfield, and topped Rawls rushing TOTAL in one play, gaining 26 up the middle (NOT in garbage time) on one of his seven rushes. Collins was hard to take down, and on one play looked like he was doing his best Marshawn Lynch impression as it took several defenders to haul him down. His success lately does not likely mean a change in his role, but with Rawls on a shorter leash than ever, we can expect Collins to shoulder some of the load in the playoffs.

2016 Week 16 vs ARI (7 / 28 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 19 / 0 rec)

Collins is a bit of a wild card going forward. He subbed in after Thomas Rawls's dismal first half showing. And he looked fantastic. Collins showed excellent Speed, burst, and good hands on receptions, fighting for every inch. But it was a limited sample size and there is no guarantee that he will see the field that much next week. It all hinges on Rawls and whether or not he gets another crack at it after two terrible showings in a row.

2016 Week 6 vs ATL (1 / 2 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Collins vulture a goal line TD, with a nice move to avoid a defender in the backfield before plunging across the line. He later caught a screen pass for a short first down. Probably shouldn't be on the fantasy radar, but if injuries were to hit, he looks capable of stepping in.

2016 Week 3 vs SF (4 / 12 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

Collins looked capable running the ball, as he spelled Christine Michael occasionally and picked up some carries in garbage time with a big lead. He also showed good hands on his two receptions.
