Collins announced Thursday he will transfer to Oklahoma State.
ANALYSIS
Collins will look to carve out a role with the Cowboys during his final season of collegiate eligibility in 2023. The graduate-senior running back spent the first four seasons of his career with Michigan State. While he never saw consistent playing time over the past three campaigns, the 225-pound back did emerge as one of the Spartans' top ball carriers to end the 2022 season, as he logged double-digit carries in each of the final two regular-season games. Collins will likely compete with young running backs Ollie Gordon and Jaden Nixon for snaps this coming offseason.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
After a rough rushing attack from the Spartans in 2018, Collins assumed command of the running game early in the 2020 season and never looked back, registering 47 percent of the team’s rushing attempts for the season. He finished out the campaign with 222 attempts for 988 yards and five touchdowns and should be headed for another leading role in 2020. One thing that is new in East Lansing is the head coach after a surprising retirement from Mark Dantonio this offseason. Mel Tucker takes over and brings his offensive coordinator, Jay Johnson, with him. Despite having a senior signal-caller at the helm last season, the two combined for a rushing rate of 51.5 percent. That’s a higher mark than the Spartans employed last season, which could bode well for his chances of a slight bump in carries. It’s still tough to see the staff wanting to go too much higher on that number, so an improvement in efficiency may be in order to return better numbers.
