Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Headed to Las Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins came to terms Wednesday on a contract with the Raiders, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

After spending the first four years of his career in Dallas, Collins will now reconnect with former Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli in Las Vegas. The 24-year-old played a full 16-game slate in 2019 and registered 20 stops and five sacks, despite battling knee and foot injuries. He'll likely claim a starting role along the Raiders' defensive front.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Solid in trenches in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins completed the 2019 season with 20 tackles (15 solo) including four sacks and a fumble recovery.

A third-round pick in 2016, Collins has provided the Cowboys with a solid worker in the center of the defensive line over his four-year career. He's compiled 84 tackles including 14.5 sacks while only missing three games. Dallas has higher-priority free agents to worry about this offseason and a likely new defensive scheme under Mike McCarthy, so there's no guarantee the Cowboys will be interested in bringing back Collins even if he doesn't receive big offers from other teams looking to bolster their depth in the front seven.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Adds to sack total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins had three solo tackles and a sack during Sunday's loss at New England.

Collins brought down Tom Brady on third down during the fourth quarter to force a punt. The 2016 third-round pick has 18 tackles (13 solo) and four sacks in 11 games this season.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Adds third sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins posted two tackles (one solo) and a sack in Monday's 37-18 win over the Giants.

Collins collected his first sack since Week 4 on Monday, though he's now already matched his 2018 sack total of 3.0. He's gaining a bit of momentum with seven total tackles over the Cowboys' past two games after recording just one tackle per game in Weeks 2 to 6.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Hunting opposing QBs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins has a sack in each of his last two games.

Against the Broncos, Collins recorded his second sack of the season, a week after picking up his first QB takedown. Used primarily as a run-stuffer, he doesn't hold much value in IDP formats but nonetheless has enjoyed a good run of things in recent weeks. It's also worth noting that Collins played 73 percent of defensive snaps for Dallas in Week 4, up from 61 percent the week prior.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Looking quicker in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins has been one of the standout players in training camp for the Cowboys, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

The DT only produced 19 tackles and three sacks last season through 13 games as he battled knee and foot injuries, but Collins is 100 percent healthy now and looking quicker and more disruptive off the line than before. His role in the defense won't make him a big IDP factor, but the more defensive attention Collins can draw up the middle, the more opportunities for sacks DeMarcus Lawrence and Robert Quinn will have off the edge.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Ends season on high note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins made six tackles (four solo) in Saturday's playoff loss to the Rams.

Collins made 19 tackles and three sacks in 13 regular-season games, so his playoff stat line of 10 stops and a sack in two games was a clear upgrade. The 24-year-old has one year left on his contract, and he's in line to start on the Cowboys' strong defensive front again in 2019.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Ready for divisional round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (illness/ankle) is active for Saturday's game against the Rams, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Collins was limited at practice this week with the illness and ankle issue to earn the questionable tag, but won't miss Saturday's game. The 24-year-old will play a heavy role on the Cowboys' defensive front in Los Angeles.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Tallies third sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins had three solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 27-20 win against Tampa Bay.

The sack is Collins' first since Week 6 against the Jaguars, as he has offered little in terms of statistical production. The 24-year-old played 56 of 80 defensive snaps Sunday and has only 17 tackles and three sacks through 12 games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Redskins, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins was limited in practice all week and could be a game-time decision for Thursday's divisional tilt against the Redskins. If Collins were to be limited to any extent, Antwaun Woods would receive an uptick in snaps.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is active for Sunday's contest against the Falcons, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Collins was limited in practice this past week but appears to be in line to start against Atlanta. If he aggravates the injury or is limited at all, look for Caraun Reid to get some extra snaps.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Colins was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday, and could be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons. With Antwaun Woods (concussion) listed as doubtful and Daniel Ross (calf) ruled out, the Cowboys could call upon Dorance Armstrong or Caraun Reid to enter the starting lineup if Collins is unable to go Week 11.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Questionable for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the jaguars, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins has missed three consecutive games with a knee injury, but he could make his return Sunday after practicing in limited fashion all week. If he's ultimately kept to the sideline, however, David Irving and Daniel Ross could see additional snaps at defensive tackle next to Tyrone Crawford.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's matchup against the Texans, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins will miss his third straight game after last appearing in Week 2. With David Irving still out, Caraun Reid and Daniel Ross will play larger roles on Dallas' interior defensive line behind starters Antwuan Woods and Tyrone Crawford.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Texans, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins hasn't played since Week 2, but his limited participation in practice all week is a reason for optimism. He had two tackles (one solo) and one sack in the first two games.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Collins is in danger of missing his third consecutive game with a knee injury that he sustained in Week 2, though the fact he's practicing in some capacity is encouraging. Daniel Ross will continue to fill in for Collins if he's ruled inactive.

Cowboys' Maliek Collins: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against Detroit, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Collins will miss his second consecutive game while recovering from a knee injury sustained during Dallas' Week 2 win over the Cowboys. A timetable for Collins' recovery remains unclear, but Daniel Ross will continue to play an increased defensive role as long as Collins remains sidelined.
