Week 11 vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Alex Collins scored a touchdown against the Steelers before the bye last week, but he only carried the ball nine times for 35 yards. Collins should continue to be the primary two-down back in Baltimore, but with Javorius Allen, Gus Edwards, and Ty Montgomery all in play for snaps and touches, it’ll be hard for Collins to excel, particularly in PPR formats.
This week, Collins has some upside against a Bengals defense that allows the third-most fantasy points per game to the running back position. Cincinnati got torched by the Saints last week and if Baltimore can get a small lead early on, Collins could get a ton of work. He’s a borderline RB2 option in most leagues.
