Collins took one shot off target and picked up five clearances and a yellow card en route to a defensive clean sheet in the 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Tuesday.

Excellent fantasy outing for the whole Hammers' rearguard. Besides the very fruitful win and clean sheet, with the Hammers' endless forays throughout the whole game, every defender managed to register shots on goal and other offensive statistics. Very depleted defensive corps allow Collins to continue starting. The veteran has now nine consecutive Premier League starts with the Hammers losing only one of those games and grabbing four clean sheets in that period.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins had the whooping 23 clearances in addition to three tackles and two blocked shots en route to a defensive clean sheet in the crucial 2-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

The veteran keeps getting chances to start and finally found his way to a defensive masterpiece performance that earned him Man Of the Match award. Two softer match ups are in line for the Hammers against struggling Bournemouth and Newcastle but Winston Reid may be back by then and that would mean Collins would probably go back to the bench.

Collins served his suspension and will be available for selection against Man Utd on Saturday.

Collins missed the entire November through a three-game suspension and the international break. It is highly unlikely, though, anyone missed him in fantasy land. Don't look for his likes even now that he's available for selection since he'll have an uphill battle to even pick up a spot in the match day 18-man squad.

Collins will serve his second game of his three game suspension on Sunday when West Ham faces Tottenham.

Collins has only appeared in five Premier League fixtures this season. Even after he serves his suspension, he'll most likely remain out of the lineup or see limited playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins is suspended for three games and will miss Saturday Premier League game with Everton.

The Welsch isn't gonna be missed deeply with Winston Reid and Angelo Ogbonna reportedly ready to return to action. Reid will probably slot right back next to James Tomkins in the heart of the Hammers' defense. Even after he serves his suspension, Collins would struggle to make the team with fully healthy squad.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins took a shot on target but was sent off and picked up a defensive loss in the defeat to Watford on Saturday.

The veteran was shown a direct red card for a challenge from the back in the 84-th minute. Hes pending a suspension which might not matter anyway. If Winston Reid is fit he would probably resume his starting role regardless of Collins' absence. If not, Angelo Ogbonna would be more than happy to return to the starting XI for first time since August.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins will be available for Sunday's match against Spurs after recovering from a hamstring injury.

The Hammers' defense has dealt with a number of injuries of late, but with a fully fit squad, it's unclear if Collins will be able to grab a spot in the starting lineup.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins picked up a hamstring injury in the first half of West Ham's 2-0 defeat to Liverpool, but was not removed until the 73rd minute.

Collins has been dealing with hamstring issues for much of the season. He gutted it out as long as he could since West Ham's beleaguered back line was already without James Tomkins and Carl Jenkinson. His status is uncertain for Sunday's upcoming fixture with Manchester United.
