  • Ravens' Alex Collins: Piles up 24 touches
    By RotoWire Staff

    Collins had 20 carries for 49 yards and a touchdown, adding four catches for 22 yards on seven targets in Sunday's 23-0 win over the Packers. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg confirmed Collins' status as the lead back earlier in the week, and it was reinforced when Terrance West showed up on Sunday's inactive list as a healthy scratch. With starting left tackle Ronnie Stanley (concussion) also out of the lineup, the Ravens were unable to open many holes for Collins, who accounted for 20 of the team's 24 running-back carries while also setting new career-high marks for catches and targets. The volume largely was a product of game context, as Danny Woodhead returned from injured reserve and handled passing downs while the game was still competitive. Collins took nine of his carries in the final quarter, including a three-yard touchdown on his final tote. He figures to handle the lead role again Week 12 against the Texans, but 20 touches will be a lot to ask unless the Ravens jump out to another comfortable lead.

  • Ravens' Alex Collins: Still the lead back
    By RotoWire Staff

    Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg relayed that Collins will remain the Ravens' lead back even when Terrance West (calf) and Danny Woodhead (hamstring) return to the team's backfield mix, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports. Collins hasn't been a big factor in the passing game, so the looming return of Woodhead (hamstring) is of more import to the status of Javorius Allen, who has hauled in 39 catches to date. While West (calf) opened the season in a key backfield role, now that he's poised to resume action, he won't supplant Collins on Sunday when the Ravens face Green Bay on the road. The team's upcoming reinforcements do represent a positive development for the Baltimore offense going forward, but keep in mind that Collins' workload could take a hit in the coming weeks if his production sputters at all.

  • Collins rushed 13 times for 43 yards and added a three-yard catch on his lone target in Sunday's 23-20 loss to Tennessee. Collins couldn't get much going, losing playing time to receiving back Javorius Allen as their team trailed for the final three quarters. Both running backs ended up with 14 touches, but it was Allen who was able to find paydirt on a three-yard catch in the fourth quarter. While Collins is averaging a robust 5.6 yards per carry, none of his 93 rushing attempts have resulted in a touchdown.

  • Ravens' Alex Collins: Expected to stay busy

    Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he expects Collins to get more opportunities going forward, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports. Terrance West (calf) and Danny Woodhead (hamstring) are working their way back from injuries, but at this point they should be viewed as threats to Javorius Allen more so than to Collins. The Seahawks cast-off leads all qualified NFL rushers with 6.0 yards per carry, after rumbling for 113 yards on 18 totes (and 30 yards on two catches) in Thursday's 40-0 win over the Dolphins. Collins has been the team's most consistent offensive weapon, and he should be locked in as the lead back on early downs unless his issues with ball security emerge again. The Ravens have only had 15 plays of 20 or more yards all season, with Collins accounting for five of those. West may not even have a role once he's healthy, which in any case doesn't seem likely to happen before Sunday's game in Tennessee.

  • Collins rushed 18 times for 113 yards and brought in both of his targets for 30 yards in Thursday's 40-0 win over the Dolphins. Collins flashed excellent power-running skills throughout the night, and the Ravens' offensive line certainly did their part in opening up an abundance of rushing lanes. The second-year back's carry and rushing yardage totals were both career highs, and his 6.3 yards per tote marked his fourth time in seven games with at least a 6.0 figure in that category. The 23-year-old's rushing touches have fluctuated and backfield mate Javorius Allen has proven to be a more complete player, so it remains to be seen if Collins will have the same degree of opportunity in Week 9 against the Titans.
