Hollins agreed Tuesday with the Dolphins on a one-year contract, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Hollins is coming off a 2020 campaign in which he caught 16 of his 25 targets for 176 yards and a touchdown in 16 games. The 2017 fourth-round pick is off the fantasy radar in most formats, but his return bolsters Miami's wide-receiver depth. The 27-year-old is also expected to fill an important role on special teams for Miami.
Hollins secured his only target for three yards during Week 17's 56-26 loss to the Bills.
Hollins appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins in 2020, his first time logging a full season since playing for the Eagles as a rookie in 2017. While working with both Tua Tagovailoa and Ryan Fitzpatrick in that span, Hollins caught 16 of 25 targets for 176 yards and the second touchdown of his career. The 27-year-old is set to hit free agency this offseason, but his relatively reliable stint with Miami may make it easier for Hollins to secure a depth role elsewhere.
Hollins secured two of four targets for 42 yards during Saturday's 26-25 win over the Raiders.
Hollins' best catch of the day came in the form of a 34-yard grab down the left side of the field with just 19 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, a play which set the Dolphins up for a game-winning field goal. The 27-year-old could handle another expanded role on offense Week 17 if DeVante Parker (hamstring) remains sidelined.
Hollins caught one of two targets for eight yards during Sunday's 22-12 win over New England.
Hollins played a season-high 96 percent of offensive snaps with both DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Jakeem Grant (hamstring) sidelined, but he was only able to translate his playing time into two looks from Tua Tagovailoa. If the Dolphins' top receivers can get healthy enough to suit up Week 16 against the Raiders, Hollins may find himself back in a reserve role.
Hollins could be in line for an expanded role in Miami's passing attack Sunday against the Patriots with DeVante Parker (hamstring), Jakeem Grant (hamstring) and Mike Gesicki (shoulder) all inactive for the contest, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
In addition to the three inactive pass catchers, the Dolphins remain without the services of another starting wideout in Preston Williams (foot), who's on injured reserve. Those absences leave rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa with few options at his disposal, but Hollins and Lynn Bowden probably rank as the most intriguing for fantasy purposes. When Parker, Grant and Gesicki all exited with their respective injuries in the Dolphins' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs, it was Hollins (five receptions for 66 yards on nine targets, 48 percent offensive snap share) and Bowden (seven receptions for 82 yards on nine targets, 71 percent) who stepped up most prominently.
Hollins caught five of nine targets for 66 yards in Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Chiefs.
Hollins tied Lynn Bowden for the team lead in targets and finished second to Bowden in receiving yards, as Miami had to dig deep into its wide receiver depth chart after losing both DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant to leg injuries. If Parker, Grant or tight end Mike Gesicki -- who left with a shoulder injury after scoring two touchdowns -- are unable to play against the Eagles in Week 15, Hollins and Bowden will likely continue to soak up most of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's passing attempts.
Hollins secured his only target for seven yards in the Dolphins' 19-7 win over the Bengals on Sunday before getting ejected for fighting with 12:07 remaining in the game, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Hollins played a minimal role in the offense before becoming embroiled in a sizable brawl near the sideline following Mike Thomas' premature hit on Jakeem Grant during a punt-return attempt. The fourth-year wideout has at least one reception in five consecutive games, but he's tallied no more than 19 yards in any of those contests.
Hollins secured two of three targets for 19 yards during Sunday's 20-3 win over the Jets.
Hollins actually notched season-high marks in terms of catches, yards and targets versus New York, though his impact on offense was still ultimately minimal. He did so while handling the second most offensive snaps (66 percent) of any Dolphins receiver, behind DeVante Parker, perhaps because Jakeem Grant was still feeling the impact of his hamstring injury.
Collins caught his only target for one yard during Sunday's 29-21 win over the Chargers.
Hollins also played 54 percent of snaps on special teams, an area where the Dolphins utilize his skillset more. In the wake of Preston Williams (foot) being placed on IR, Hollins has recorded a catch in back-to-back weeks.
Hollins could be an option to enter the starting lineup after fellow wideout Preston Williams (foot) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Hollins made the most of his opportunity after Williams was forced out of last weekend's win over the Cardinals, turning his first target of the season into a touchdown. Jakeem Grant may be a likelier candidate to start across from DeVante Parker, though the Dolphins could also put a cap on his offensive reps in favor of keeping him fresh for return duties. Malcolm Perry and Lynn Bowden could also push Hollins for the No. 3 role as long as Williams is sidelined.
Hollins hauled in his only target for 11 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-31 win over the Cardinals.
Hollins took the field in relief of Preston Williams (foot), who had to be carted off due to a sprain in the first half after scoring a touchdown of his own. He finished the game having played 28 percent of offensive snaps, less than both Jakeem Grant (48 percent) and Malcolm Perry (38 percent). If Williams can't return against the Chargers in Week 10, Hollins will have limited fantasy appeal in deep formats.
Hollins played one snap on offense and 18 snaps on special teams during Week 17's win over the Patriots.
Hollins joined the Dolphins in Week 14, and he saw most of his usage with the team come on special teams. Across 12 games with the Eagles in 2019, Hollins caught 10 of 22 targets for 125 yards. In four contests with Miami, he failed to bring in his only target. The 26-year-old is under contract for 2020, but he'll need to spend the offseason competing for a roster spot.
Hollins did not record an offensive snap during Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Giants.
Hollins saw a target in his Miami debut in Week 14, but didn't so much as see the field on offense the following week. Sunday brings a matchup against a mediocre Bengals pass defense, but it's probably too much to expect for Hollins to turn in a useful fantasy performance as he continues to familiarize himself with the Dolphins' scheme.
Hollins did not catch his only target during Sunday's 22-21 loss to the Jets.
Hollins played only 10 snaps (14 percent) on offense in his Dolphins debut during Sunday's divisional loss, even after top wideouts DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson exited with concussions. Instead, Isaiah Ford and Allen Hurns took over as Ryan Fitzpatrick's main targets. If Parker and Wilson sit out Week 15's matchup against the Giants, Hollins could see an uptick in his workload as he becomes more familiar with the playbook, but he'll likely remain in a depth role.
The Dolphins claimed Hollins off waivers from the Eagles on Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Hollins failed to live up to expectations over parts of three seasons in Philadelphia, but a Miami squad short on quality receiving depth will give him a look to finish out 2019. Don't expect Hollins to handle significant snaps in Sunday's game against the Jets, though he could see his role expand over the final three contests of 2019 once he has more time to get familiar with the Miami playbook.
Hollins was waived by the Eagles on Tuesday.
The Eagles have failed to get much production from their wide receivers this season, and Hollins illustrates that problem quite well with 10 catches for 125 yards in 12 games. The 2017 fourth-round pick played only 24 offensive snaps in three games since the Week 10 bye, so he was clearly being phased out of the offensive gameplan. The 26-year-old will now be exposed to the waiver wire before hitting free agency.
Hollins saw just seven offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to Miami.
Hollins is a clear fifth on the depth chart, as J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward each saw at least 27 snaps on offense. The former Tarheel is mostly a special-teams player right now.
Hollins played just four offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to Seattle.
Hollins has seen his role diminish since the bye, playing just 17 snaps on offense total over two games after seeing at least 30 in eight straight weeks. That he barely saw the field in a week where the Eagles' top two wide receivers both sat out should tell one all they need to know about his fantasy prospects.
Hollins played just 13 offensive snaps in Sunday's 17-10 loss to New England and saw no targets..
The snap count was the 26-year-old's lowest since Week 1, as he had seen at least 31 every week in between. The recently signed Jordan Matthews absorbed most of that playing time, but J.J. Arcega-Whiteside also played more. Hollins seems to have fallen down the depth chart despite DeSean Jackson (abdomen) being out for the season and Alshon Jeffery sitting with an ankle injury.
Hollins played 42 snaps on offense but was not targeted in Sunday's 22-14 win over the Bears.
Hollins operated as the team's third wide receiver after DeSean Jackson departed early in the contest. With Jackson out for the foreseeable future after aggravating his abdominal injury, Holllins should continue to see starts but has not done anything with the opportunity so far this season. With a Week 10 bye and the Patriots on tap after that, Hollins does not seem close to making an impact in fantasy.
