Collins scored a goal on two shots (one on target), had a team-high four interceptions and was issued a yellow card in Monday's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea.

The 32-year-old was a question mark as to whether he'd feature in the starting XI, but the defender rewarded Slaven Bilic's decision, scoring from close range to equalize in the 77th minute. He made 19 appearances in the Premier League last season, missing time due to injury, ineffectiveness and discipline, missing four matches due to a straight red card and two yellows. While his place in the side may not always be assured, with more performances like Monday's, he should find himself in the team more often than not.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins has been included in the starting XI for Monday's match with Chelsea.

Collins is starting at centre-back for the Hammers. He will be busy against Chelsea's dangerous attack that features Eden Hazard, Diego Costa, and Oscar.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins will miss Thursday's draw against Domzale with an undisclosed injury.

Collins made 16 starts for United last season and logged four shots on target and five clean sheets. The 32-year-old is unlikely to show up on the score sheet often, but is a sturdy defender when healthy and can certainly contribute stats on the back line.

Collins appeared in two matches (one start) for Wales during Euro 2016, recording five clearances. He takes his international record to 49 caps and three goals. Wales' fantastic run in the tournament ended in the semifinals after a 2-0 defeat by Portugal.

Injuries and poor form were on the way of Collins for more consistent playing time last season with West Ham. Even when on the field, though, the 32-year-old defender wasn't much of a fantasy contributor finishing the season with five clean sheets and 18 tackles in 19 Premier League appearances (16 starts).

Collins (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Arsenal.

Collins has been out for over a month due to his injury, so while he is expected to return to training this week, he'll have to keep working on his match fitness before he's able to feature.

Collins is progressing, but will remain out for the Crystal Palace match, according to manager Slaven Bilic.

While Collins is out, James Tomkins is set to return for West Ham's back line in a fruitful matchup against Crystal Palace.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins (hamstring) will be out for West Ham's next three games unless something positive happens, manager Slaven Bilic confirmed.

The loss of Collins is a blow to West Ham's back line ahead of a road match against Everton. The Hammers are already without multiple defenders and will likely turn to Reece Oxford, who came on for Collins in the midweek match against Tottenham. On the road, West Ham defenders don't have much value.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins could miss at least three games after suffering a hamstring injury during Wednesday's match against Tottenham, Sky Sports reports.

With Winston Reid and James Tomkins also unavailable due to injury, as well as Joey O'Brien and Carl Jenkinson, youngster Reece Oxford to move into the starting XI at centerback next to Angelo Ogbonna.
