Alex Collins News: Seattle RB’s performance in week 3 of the 2021 NFL preseason
Seattle Seahawks running back Alex Collins appears to be in a bit of a competition with Rashaad Penny for the No. 2 running back role behind Chris Carson. And the good news for Collins is that he had a solid game against the Chargers on Saturday night.
Four rushing attempts for 21 yards and a touchdown. Three receptions for 27 yards.
Alex Collins tá jogando com tanta vaade que até o Geno faith blocear para ele haha. Não é solução de nenhum backfield, mas melhor que o Penny (que não é lá grande coisa) ele é. pic.twitter.com/XOJIoiZL8x

Collins scored five yards in the first quarter and looked good running and catching the ball several times. Penny, on the other hand, couldn’t do much and was also sentenced to a blind blocking penalty.
Unfortunately for Collins, cutting Penny would be a bad financial blow for the Seahawks and Travis Homer is a better special teams player. It’s hard to predict how that backfield will come out in the end. As for the Seahawks’ beat makers, they all seem to be around Collins.
Just give Alex Collins the promotion to second running back right now.

Until we know what will happen with their roster cuts, it’s tough to get in on Collins, but I see no reason not to catch him as an end-of-round aviator in deeper leagues. . The Seahawks will be throwing the ball and their RB2 is very valuable.
