2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
To say that during this time last year Collins wasn't on most people's radar is a monumental "no-duh". Still a member of the Seahawks in July of 2017, Collins was eventually cut, and signed to the Ravens' practice squad in early September. With injuries hitting the backfield, Collins got a call-up to the active roster about two weeks later. After looking spry in a Week 2 win against Cleveland, the former 5th-round pick slowly saw an uptick in playing time as he began to distance himself from the crowded Baltimore backfield. When the dust settled on the 2017 season, Collins ended up with nearly 1,000 yards rushing and 6 touchdowns, while sporting a crisp 4.6 yards per carry average. Through the season he showed bust and power, and was basically the only bright spot on a miserable Ravens offense.

Not much has changed in the Raven's backfield in 2018. Signed to a 1-year contract after being a restricted free agent, Collins enters the offseason as the clear lead dog in a still crowded group. The Ravens fully committed to him during the back half of the 2017 season, and barring a miracle return from talented, but troubled Kenneth Dixon, Collins should easily lead the team in rushing. With all 23 of his receptions coming in the final nine games, Collins showed enough versatility to be more than a 2-down back. Keep a close eye on Dixon's usage and production in the pre-season, but as it sits right now I'd be very excited to nab Collins as my RB2, especially if Jackson makes an appearance at quarterback.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Ravens activate Kenneth Dixon, Collins on IR
Gus Edwards expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 1, 1:00 pm

Baltimore Ravens
We have placed RB Alex Collins on the Injured Reserve list and activated RB Kenneth Dixon. (Ravens on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gus Edwards (ankle) is expected to play against the Falcons along with Ty Montgomery. Dixon will be up as the No.3 running back and is flier worthy in deep leagues if you're looking for a lottery ticket during the fantasy playoffs.


Injury Gus, Collins listed as questionable
Edwards practices on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 30, 3:10 pm

Baltimore Ravens
RBs Gus Edwards (ankle), Alex Collins (foot), OLB Tim Williams (illness), DB Anthony Levine Sr. (ankle) and CB Tavon Young (groin) are all questionable for Ravens. Harbaugh also said team considering adding RB Kenneth Dixon to roster for Sunday. They’ll have to make that move by 4 pm tomorrow. (Jeff Zrebiec on Twitter‏)

FFToday's Take: In related injury news Joe Flacco is listed as doubtful. Edwards was able to practice on Friday and should be good to go for Sunday against the Falcons. We'll get a better feel the for running backs likely to play if the Ravens activate Dixon from IR on Saturday.


Injury Alex Collins does not practice Thursday
Was limited in practice Wednesday with foot injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 1, 3:10 pm

Baltimore Ravens
Ravens RB Alex Collins (foot) isn't practicing Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. The Ravens' three healthy RBs are: Javorius Allen, Ty Montgomery and Gus Edwards. (ESPN - Jamison Hensley)

FFToday's Take: As is usually the case, his participation level Friday should tell the story as to whether he is getting maintenance days ahead of a critical Week 9 division game with the Steelers or not. With that said, a downgrade - especially to a DNP - is rarely ever a good sign. Allen would likely get the start if Collins can't go, but the former has seen his playing time cut in recent weeks. It may not take long for Montgomery to take his spot at Collins' primary handcuff.
