Collins picked up his second yellow card in the 63rd minute of West Ham's 1-0 loss to Tottenham on Saturday, and he will miss next weekend's match against Crystal Palace.

West Ham don't get a ton of clean sheet opportunities, but next weekend's match against Palace was a possibility that Collins will now miss out on.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Collins found an instant connection with Joe Cole during West Ham's FA Cup match against Manchester United on Saturday, heading home twice from crosses sent in by the recent transfer in the 27th and 59th minutes.

This sudden connection with Cole, who rejoined his old youth club, bodes well for Collins. Only a stoppage time goal from Van Persie prevented West Ham from advancing with the upset. It'll be interesting to see if they can bring out another great defensive performance in the reply on Wednesday.
