Collins has played in three games this season with Hamilton, posting 145 yards and one touchdown on 12 receptions. The team is dealing with significant injuries to their slotback depth, so he'll be lining up behind Luke Tasker.

July 28, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

It was announced earlier this week that Collins would be replaced in the starting lineup by Kevin Elliott, and his placement on the injured list means he will not even suit up in Week 6.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins will be replaced in the lineup by Kevin Elliott for Saturday's game against the Stampeders, 3DownNation reports.

Collins led the Tiger-Cats in receiving the last time out and has been productive since joining the lineup in Week 3, but head coach Kent Austin will go a different direction this week, and use Elliott with the starting unit instead. It remains to be seen what Collins' role will be beyond Week 6.

July 21, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins totaled 58 yards on four receptions in Thursday's 31-28 loss to the Eskimos.

Collins was one of Zach Collaros' top targets on the night, although no receiver was able to produce truly impressive numbers against a solid Eskimos secondary. The sluggish nature of the Hamilton offense will likely cap the fantasy value of its collective members on most weeks, although the 25-year-old does offer some decent big-play upside. Collins should continue seeing a healthy dose of opportunity while Terrence Toliver (knee) remains sidelined, an absence that will linger into mid-August at a minimum.

July 15, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins notched 64 yards on six receptions in Saturday's 41-26 loss to the Lions.

Collins made his season debut in Week 3 and posted a modest two receptions for 23 yards and one touchdown, but he was much more productive overall Saturday. Although teammate Jalen Saunders stole the show with a 149-yard effort, Collins actually outpaced him in receptions was one of Zach Collaros' most dependable targets in the short and intermediate passing game. He'll look to build on this performance in a Week 5 tilt versus the Eskimos.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins totaled 23 yards and a touchdown on two receptions in Saturday's 37-20 loss to the Roughriders.

Collins made an impact in his 2017 debut, getting into the end zone on a third-quarter reception for the team's only touchdown of the night. The Mount Union product enjoyed modest success over his first two CFL seasons, hauling in 27 receptions for 380 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games. Given the thin nature of the Ti-Cats' receiving corps at present, the 25-year-old could potentially see his role continue to grow in the coming weeks.

Collins caught six passes for a team-high 95 yards in Saturday's loss to the Alouettes.

With Hamilton having already locked up their playoff spot regardless of the outcome of the game, they elected to give most of their starters plenty of rest, which allowed Collins to have his best game of the season. The second-year receiver will return to a depth role next Sunday when the Ti-Cats host Edmonton in the Eastern Semifinal.

October 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins secured three receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 30-29 loss to the Redblacks.

Collins' 20-yard score with 9:43 remaining tied the score at 27, the Mount Union product's first touchdown of the campaign. The 24-year-old hasn't shown much in the three games he's been active for to date, but could be a bigger part of the offense going forward.

Collins caught two passes for 21 yards in Saturday's loss to the Roughriders.

Collins was injured during practice last week, but the setback did not prevent him from making his season debut in Week 14.
