Alex Collins waived by Ravens

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Ravens have waived RB Alex Collins on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Collins was reportedly arrested following a car accident on Friday which ultimately led to him being waived. However, his declining play and role in the Ravens' offense also didn't help. After averaging 4.6 YPC in 2017, Collins opened 2018 as Baltimore's RB1 but didn't last long in his featured role. Averaging 3.6 YPC in 2018, a full yard less than his 2017 mark, Collins lost his job to Gus Edwards and was placed on IR on December 1 with a foot injury. With Collins out of town, plus, the fact that Ty Montgomery and Buck Allen are impending free agents, the only rushers that are currently under contract for the Ravens are Edwards and Kenneth Dixon. Expect Baltimore to bring in outside help to bolster their RB depth chart in free agency and/ or the draft.

Alex Collins placed on IR by Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens announced this morning that they have placed running back, Alex Collins, on injured reserve. He will miss the remainder of the season and is a restricted free agent this off-season.

Fantasy Impact

It seemed as though Alex Collins had a chance to come back in Week 13, but with him shut down for the season, Gus Edwards can be relied on as a workhorse running back for the remainder of the fantasy football season.

Alex Collins questionable to play Week 13

Alex Collins is listed as questionable to play Week 13 due to a foot injury.

Fantasy Impact

Collins was a surprise inactive last week, but it appears he'll be able to return this week against the Falcons. Still, he's nothing more than a TD-dependent flex play given the presence of Gus Edwards, who's also questionable and expected to play. If Edwards is somehow inactive, Collins would be an RB2.

Alex Collins returns to practice Thursday

Alex Collins was able to return to practice Thursday despite his foot injury.

Fantasy Impact

Collins was out Week 12 and then missed practice Wednesday, casting doubt over his status for Week 13. However, it's a good sign that he was able to return to practice. Gus Edwards, who had replaced Collins of late as the team's primary RB, also missed practice Wednesday and returned Thursday. If both are active Collins is expected to have a secondary role to Edwards, but the situation is worth monitoring as the week advances.

Alex Collins remains out Wednesday

Alex Collins missed Wednesday's practice due to a foot injury.

Fantasy Impact

Collins was inactive Week 12 and continued to see his grasp on carries split away in Baltimore as Gus Edwards appears the be the back to own. Even if Collins is able to suit up Week 13 it's unclear what role he'll have, likely playing behind Edwards.
