Week 3 vs. Denver Broncos
In Week 1, Alex Collins got limited work because the Ravens blew out the Bills. In Week 2, Collins only had nine carries for 35 yards, largely because the Bengals ran up the score in the first half, causing the Ravens to attempt 55 passes. Collins did catch three balls on four targets and add 55 receiving yards to his day, but he’ll need to do better than 12 touches to be a viable RB2, as he was drafted to be.
This week, Collins will face a Broncos defense that has allowed 78 yards per game on the ground so far this year and gave up a rushing touchdown to Marshawn Lynch last week. Expect Collins to get more of a workload in what should be a fairly even-matched game. With Javorius Allen getting work in the passing game, Collins is a low-end RB2 in most leagues, with a little more value in standard formats.
