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.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins had one shot in West Ham's clean sheet win on Wednesday versus Tottenham Hotspur.

There are flashier options when it comes to West Ham defenders, but Collins has been a steady performer as part of some makeshift backlines at Upton Park. The veteran has some fantasy appeal as part of a squad that's playing superbly at the moment.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
