Landon Collins signing with the Giants

The New York Giants are signing free agent Landon Collins.

Fantasy Impact

Collins is planning on traveling with the team to London to be around his new team. Collins was originally drafted in the second round by the Giants in 2015 and is returning to the team after spending three seasons in Washington. The 28-year-old can move around the field and play a variety of positions which should help the Giants' defense be more dynamic in the weeks ahead.

Landon Collins: Commanders to release Landon Collins

Washington is expected to release Collins after three seasons with the team. $9.6 million of his salary will count against the Commanders cap in 2022.

Fantasy Impact

Collins had his role adjusted in 2021, as the Football Team moved him into more of a hybrid role. The move worked well for the Washington defense, but Collins stated that while he accepted the role, he prefers to play in a traditional strong safety role. He was scheduled to count $16.2 against the Commanders salary cap, but the Commanders alleviated $6.6 million in space with the release. Collins struggled with injury at times in Washington, but a team that plays a traditional two-safety defensive backfield will greatly benefit from Collins' immense talent. He will be a popular target when free agency begins.

Landon Collins: Commanders looking to re-negotiate safety's contract

The Washington Commanders are looking to re-negotiate safety Landon Collins' contract ahead of the upcoming free agency period.

Fantasy Impact

Collins is halfway through the six-year, $84 million contract he signed in 2019. However, Washington is looking to re-negotiate with the safety considering his current deal will account for $48.6 million against the cap over the next three years. The Commanders would prefer to hammer out a new contract rather than move on from the 29-year-old, but if they had to cut him, they would create nearly $6.5 million in cap space while incurring $9.6 million in dead money. Collins totaled 51 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions, two fumbles recovered, and one fumble forced through 13 games in 2021.

Landon Collins (Achilles) placed on season-ending IR

Washington S Landon Collins is being placed on season-ending IR with a torn Achilles.

Fantasy Impact

Collins left Sunday's game against Dallas with a non-contact injury, and an MRI Tuesday has confirmed what was expected. He finishes the season with 41 tackles, two sacks, an interception, and a forced fumble. Collins has been solid for Washington, but never the superstar they had hoped for when signing him to a 6-year $84M contract last season. The Washinton D/ST ranks just outside the top-12 in fantasy points scored. With their sturdy defensive front, they can still be considered a bye week fill-in or matchup-based streaming option.

Landon Collins believed to have suffered season-ending Achilles injury

Fantasy Impact

Collins left the team's Week 7 game against the Cowboys after suffering the non-contact injury in the second quarter. He'll undergo an MRI on Monday but Washington is reportedly expecting bad news.
