  Seahawks | Alex Collins back on the active roster    Fri Jan 8, 04:01 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Alex Collins was elevated from the practice squad Friday, Jan. 8.

Footballguys view: Collins got some work in Week 17 and looked good in limited duty. Rashaad Penny (knee) is questionable for the Wild Card game against the Rams, so that means Collins could be out there in a limited role again.

  Seahawks | Seattle picks up Week 17 road victory    Sun Jan 3, 07:47 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson completed 20-of-36 passes for 181 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers, while also running for 29 yards. RB Chris Carson ended up with a team-best 44 rushing yards on 11 carries, while adding two grabs for 39 yards. RB Alex Collins had five carries for 29 yards and a score, and WR Tyler Lockett rolled up 12 receptions for a game-high 90 yards and 14 targets. WR DK Metcalf was limited to 21 yards on three receptions, with TE Will Dissly leading the tight ends with 20 receiving yards.

Footballguys view: Seattle ended up stuck in the third seed no matter what happened in this game, but it was still positive to end on a winning note. They'll face the Rams, who have been a tough divisional matchup for them since Sean McVay took over.

  Eagles | Alex Collins a fit in Philly?    Sat Feb 16, 11:27 PM

Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent Alex Collins could be a trade target for the Philadelphia Eagles, in the opinion of Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Why trade for him when the Ravens could just let him go? Collins had a breakout season in 2017 but struggled to stay healthy and impress in 2018. There is buzz that the Ravens won't tender him, thus letting Collins hit the open market. If the Eagles were to give up something in a trade it wouldn't be more than a late-round pick.

  Ravens | Alex Collins may be let go    Fri Feb 8, 05:29 PM

Baltimore Ravens restricted free-agent RB Alex Collins may not be retained this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Footballguys view: After his breakout season in 2017, Collins followed that up with a disappointing year in 2018. He made it through 10 games banged up and averaged only 3.6 yards per carry. The Ravens have guys like Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon to tote the rock if they don't keep Collins.

  Ravens | Alex Collins placed on IR    Sat Dec 1, 11:22 AM

The Baltimore Ravens placed RB Alex Collins (foot) on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 1.

Footballguys view: Collins sees his season end after 10 appearances where he ran 114 times for 411 yards and seven rushing touchdowns. He also chipped in with 15 catches for 105 yards and one touchdown. The Ravens have seen Gus Edwards emerge as their top running back with Collins banged up. Edwards is hobbled with an ankle injury now (but we expect him to play), leaving guys like Ty Montgomery, Kenneth Dixon and Buck Allen to compete for touches.

  Ravens | Alex Collins back at work Friday    Fri Nov 23, 12:11 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) returned to practice Friday, Nov. 23, after sitting out Thursday, Nov. 22.

Footballguys view: Collins workload is uncertain with Gus Edwards emergence, but he is still worth rostering if benches are deep enough on the possibility that he regains enough of the backfield work to be fantasy relevant. The Ravens running game has been bolstered by the installation of Lamar Jackson.

  Ravens | Alex Collins finds end zone    Sun Nov 18, 06:12 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins rushed for 18 yards and one touchdown on seven carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11.

Footballguys view: Collins never got back to last year's usage and success and now it appears that Gus Edwards has overtaken him. He can be dropped in short bench leagues. Kenneth Dixon has also been designated for return in bad news for Collins dwindling value.

  Ravens | Big game on tap for Alex Collins?    Fri Nov 16, 10:17 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins faces the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11, and the Bengals are allowing the second-most rushing yards per game and the fourth-most yards per rush.

Footballguys view: The Ravens should be ready to go after having a bye in Week 10. Collins only had 10 touches for the Ravens in their last game and his role may be adjusted with Ty Montgomery expected to make his debut for the Ravens this week. Even with limited touches, Collins does have a touchdown streak for two games. Collins is a RB2 for Fantasy GMs in Week 11.

  Ravens | Alex Collins reaches end zone    Sun Nov 4, 05:08 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins rushed for 35 yards and one touchdown on nine carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9.

Footballguys view: Collins was able to get a score to salvage his fantasy day and didn't show any ill effects from the foot issue that cost him practice time earlier in the week. He's a low ceiling RB2 heading into the bye.

Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) will suit up against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week despite missing practice time.

Footballguys view: Collins is the lead back for the Ravens but the snaps will be distributed differently this week against the Steelers. The Ravens traded for Ty Montgomery earlier in the week and we're anxious to see how he fits into the RBBC with Collins and Buck Allen.

Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 2, but he is listed as questionable for Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

  Ravens | Week 9 injury report for Baltimore    Fri Nov 2, 04:18 PM

Baltimore Ravens OL James Hurst (back), OT Ronnie Stanley (ankle) and LB Tim Williams (ankle) did not practice Friday, Nov. 2 and are ruled out for the Week 9 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. CB Jimmy Smith and LB Terrell Suggs did not practice, but it was not injury related and they're off the report. C Bradley Bozeman (calf), CB Marlon Humphrey (thigh), S Tony Jefferson (hamstring), OL Alex Lewis (neck), LB C.J. Mosley (thigh) were each limited in practice and listed as questionable. RB Alex Collins (foot) practiced in full and is questionable, too, while CB Brandon Carr (not injury related) worked in full and is off the report.

Footballguys view: The Ravens offensive line is in bad shape going into this one. Look for the Steelers to test them with lots of blitzes that will limit the downfield passing possibilities.

  Ravens | Alex Collins misses Thursday practice    Thu Nov 1, 01:36 PM

Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) missed practice Thursday, Nov. 1, with a foot injury.

Footballguys view: Collins was limited yesterday, so this could be a bad sign. Ty Montgomery just joined the team and they also have power runner Gus Edwards on the roster, but Buck Allen would likely get the majority of work against the Steelers if Collins can't go.

Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Baltimore Ravens RB Alex Collins ran 11 times for 49 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers and he added 14 yards on two receptions and he lost a fumble.

Footballguys view: Collins fumble wasn't totally his fault as Kyle Love blew him up a split second after he got the ball, but the coaches might not see it that way if he keeps fumbling. He is getting the majority of carries now, but the Ravens aren't giving him good game scripts. He'll be a low ceiling RB2 against the Steelers next week.
